The Bosch WFVC8440UC is a high-end front-loading washer with many similarities to the Bosch WFVC6450UC. The WFVC8440UC shares many features with the WFVC6450UC, including a 1200rpm top rotational dry speed and energy-saving EcoSmart Technology. However, the WFVC8440UC boasts the superior AquaStop leak protection technology, which prevents leaks entirely, while the WFVC6450UC only has AquaShield technology, which needs to sense a leak before shutting off the unit.
The WFVC8440UC's 1200 rpm max spin ensures a more efficient and effective dry cycle while its EcoSmart Technology utilizes a network of sensors that adjust water and energy consumption automatically according to load size and consistency, ensuring no unnecessary heat or water is used. Additionally, the WFVC8440UC's AquaStop leak protection prevents possible leaks from occurring due to a double-walled hose and shut off valve which contain leaks and stop the washer from using anymore water, respectively.
