The Good Samsung's $1,099 WA54M8750AW washing machine has a built-in sink for hand washing or presoaking delicate items. Its modern design sets it apart from traditional top-loaders.
The Bad The WA54M8750AW didn't perform well. It's hard to see the washer's display from a distance and the tab holding the lid and sink together comes loose too easily. The Samsung Smart Home app is glitchy.
The Bottom Line You can find much better top-load washing machines around the same price.
This Samsung washer has no business in your laundry room
In a lineup of top-load washing machines, Samsung's modern $1,099 WA54M8750AW stands out. Next-gen aesthetics aside, the WA54M8750AW is highly disappointing. And even though it's currently on sale for $649, I still wouldn't buy this washer. It didn't perform well, its display is hard to read, the latch holding the washer lid and sink together is flimsy and I completely gave up on the glitchy Samsung Smart Home app mid-setup. Save your money for the high-performing $1,530 instead (it's currently on sale at Sears for $990).
The Samsung WA54M8750AW channeledwith its integrated display. I like the concept of moving the instrument panel to the main washer compartment (rather than having sticking up). It's similar to the difference between and range display panels. But the WA54M8750AW's design didn't do well in practice. Its panel sits so flat against the washer you can't read the display from a distance.
Like, the WA54M8750AW has a sink so you can soak or hand wash heavily stained or delicate items with ease. The sink is a useful addition, but you'll pay extra for it -- and this particular model has a significant design flaw. The tab that holds the lid and the sink together is in the center of the washer, rather than hidden on the side. Half of the times I tried to open the WA54M8750AW's lid to get to the wash compartment, I accidentally released the sink. Frustrating.
