The Bosch 360 is a washer and dryer concept that utilizes a spherical drum which allows the clothes to be washed in all direction for maximum cleaning. The designers found that front loading machines clean better than top loading machines. But for rinsing, top loading are better because they work with centrifugal force and are more balanced. This is why their design solves both issues in washing. The Bosch 360 also utilizes a spherical shell that flows into a base. This creates a real eye catcher in the store. Once someone sees this round washer they will almost be forced to go look at it. Then they will notice the spherical drum which is the best part. After all if the spherical drum were in a “box” not half as many people would notice it right off.
The control panel is on the door uses digital touch screen technology. This idea is not new but creating a dome shaped touch display is new. When touched, the display lights up to reveal the settings and you just need to touch the cycles that you want to use it. The cool thing about the round shell and dome touch display is that now you have an easy wipe surface to clean.
