In a lineup of top-load washing machines, Samsung’s trendy $1,099 WA54M8750AW stands out. Subsequent-gen aesthetics apart, the WA54M8750AW is very disappointing. And though it is at present on sale for $649, I nonetheless would not purchase this washer. It did not carry out properly, its show is tough to learn, the latch holding the washer lid and sink collectively is flimsy and I utterly gave up on the glitchy Samsung Good Dwelling app mid-setup. Save your cash for the high-performing $1,530 Kenmore Elite 31633 as a substitute (it is at present on sale at Sears for $990).

Trendy design is not sufficient

The Samsung WA54M8750AW channeled LG’s $1,150 WT1801HVA with its built-in show. I just like the idea of transferring the instrument panel to the principle washer compartment (slightly than having a random hunk o’ plastic and steel sticking up). It is much like the distinction between freestanding and slide-in vary show panels. However the WA54M8750AW’s design did not do properly in observe. Its panel sits so flat towards the washer you possibly can’t learn the show from a distance.

Like choose different Samsung top-loaders, the WA54M8750AW has a sink so you possibly can soak or hand wash closely stained or delicate gadgets with ease. The sink is a helpful addition, however you will pay additional for it — and this explicit mannequin has a major design flaw. The tab that holds the lid and the sink collectively is within the heart of the washer, slightly than hidden on the facet. Half of the instances I attempted to open the WA54M8750AW’s lid to get to the wash compartment, I unintentionally launched the sink. Irritating.

Here is how the WA54M8750AW stacks up towards different top-loaders in its worth vary:

At a look, Samsung’s WA54M8750AW appears like a strong contender alongside the opposite high-end top-load washers within the chart above. Its 5.Four-cubic-foot capability can simply maintain all your garments, it is priced decrease than its competitors and it is purported to work with the Samsung Good Dwelling app for Android and iOS. I sadly had no luck connecting the washer to the app. It closed and logged me out frequently for no obvious cause and I finally gave up after greater than an hour of failed makes an attempt.

Can it clear?

The Samsung WA54M8750AW didn’t carry out properly.
