Summary: I purchased BOSCH WFVC6450UC Washer on 8/5/11, the washer stop spinning last Sunday on 8/23/14, the warranty only covered for 1 year, we call BOSCH customer service, the service charge is $75 and $12 for additional 6 minutes labor which is too expensive for us.
Summary: This is a very well recognized brand however this model of washer has a lot of problems with a door sensor causing it to fail. We have used it for less than a year and the sensor stopped working properly hence the washer interprets it as if the door is not locked correctly and does not let you open...
Summary: This machine is build very well, looks great and fits large loads. I have had it for just one month and am not able to determine the long term performance. I was used to a front load Frigidaire which was still working but decided to upgrade.
Summary: We are happy with our purchase so far. What stands out most is the ability to remove stains without pre-treating. I'm not suggesting not using a pre-treatment but we have noticed clothes coming out much cleaner than previous front loaders of different brands.
Summary: I've used Bosch washers the last 2 years and they are an excellent product - very reliable and energy efficient. This rates highly in the energy star and is still in our price range. OUr laundry is light to moderate soiling & it works great for us. The machine works best with a full load.
Summary: This washer is quiet, vibration-free and performs perfectly. I've been using the special cycles more than I thought I would. The Xtra Sanitary cycle heats to 170 and my whites are whiter than ever. This machine has a big capacity and handles large loads like our queen-size comforter.
Summary: I am well content with this Bosch washer, ordered unseen from A.J.Madison. It fit into the space required by my older, smaller machine; it hums along quietly and efficiently; it handles the super size puffy king quilts; its combined cycles are useful.
Summary: Would recommend this washer (and companion dryer) to anyone. Our first front loader and yes, we bought it from AJM and had it shipped to Chicago. This washer used to retail for much more, but Bosch is no longer assembling these in the US, so they are closing it out.
