Bosch prides itself in producing washers that have unique cycles that can cater to the specific needs of users. The XXTRASANITARY Cycle makes use of the Bosch 800 WFMC8401UC's built-in thermostat to heat up the water up to 170°F and keep it so for three minutes, effectively eliminating common kinds of bacteria that may be caught up in the fibers of the fabrics.
After this hot bath, the temperature is lowered to 150°F to avoid any damage to the fabric and color of the clothing being washed.
The JEANS Cycle of this washer specifically caters to denim clothing and other garments. Water is heated and spinning cycles are regulated in order to keep the colors from bleeding or running and the fabric from piling or getting damaged.
Meanwhile, the KIDSCARE CYCLE can take care of those stains even on kids' favorite robot shirts by cranking up the heat to 150°F. This temperature is hot enough to bust out even the toughest mudcake stains but just enough to keep the colors bright and vibrant and the fibers intact.
The BOSCH 800 WFMC8401UC also has a special cycle to take care of other garments that need special attention. The AQUAGUARD CYCLE is an innovative feature that washes and refreshes the waterproofing abilities of skin diving suits, skiing outfits, and even rain wear. Users just have to pour in waterproofing agent into the dispenser, so waterproof garments can be as good as new.
Sesotronic Plus system

The load is weighed, sorted, and analyzed by a myriad of built-in sensors, so that everything from water temperature to spinning variants can be tailored to take care of the garments while providing complete cleaning.
The ARCHIE PADDLES in the tub also allow clothes get a clean and easy tumble in the washer by cascading water and skimming away the suds. This ensures a cleaner and gentler action that won't damage the fabric of the laundry.
