Step 2

Connect your washer and dryer. Each appliance should be set-up separately.

If you have been using the Clean Speak feature using the communication cable between the washer and dryer, remove the cable and plug in each Connect Module. The SmartHQ app will perform the same functions, so the cable is no longer needed.

  1. Open the SmartHQ app and sign in. From the Welcome screen, press OK.
  2. Turn on the appliance and initiate the WiFi by following the directions on the SmartHQ app. Once activated on the appliance, the WiFi LED on the display will flash. 
  3. Find the Connected Appliance Info label on the appliance. The label contains the network name and password.
  4. Type in the password from the Info label.
  5. Go to your phone's WiFi settings and choose the network name found on the Info label. This will start communication between the SmartHQ app and the appliance.
  6. If successful, the "Choose home network" screen will appear. Find your home WiFi network and enter your password to connect the device back to your home network.
    •  If you do not see your home network on the list of WiFi networks, chose the "Other" option and enter your network name yourself.
  7. The Connecting process will start and the WiFi LED will remain solid and no longer flash.
  8. The appliance is connected once the LED is solid and the SmartHQ app says "Connected!"
