Washer and Dryer - Set-Up Optional WiFi Connect with ConnectPlus Module

When using the WiFi Connect option, you will need to set-up the washer and dryer separately. Washers and Dryers with Optional WiFi Connect will each require its own ConnectPlus module.

Models with WiFi Connect on the control panel have built-in WiFi and do not require the ConnectPlus module. For WiFi Connect set-up of these models: Washer and Dryer - Set-Up Built-In WiFi Connect

To set-up the WiFi Connect with ConnectPlus option on your washer and dryer:

Step 1

Download the Laundry - GE Appliances App.

The Laundry - GE Appliances App can be used on Apple or Android smart phones, and is available to download for free from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Once downloaded, open the App on your smart phone and Sign In or create a WiFi Connect account.

  • If you already have a WiFi Connect account, select "Sign In." This takes you to the Welcome screen.
  • If you do not have a WiFi Connect account, select "Create Account." After you fill out the required information, you will receive an email to verify the account. Once the account has been verified, you will be able to use the  email and password you created to sign into the App.

Step 2

Confirm your appliance is compatible with the ConnectPlus module.

  1. Open the Laundry - GE Appliances App and sign in. From the Welcome screen, press OK.
  2. On the "Have Connect Plus?" screen, press the arrow to enter your appliance model number.
  3. The App will confirm if the appliance supports ConnectPlus. If it does, you will have a link to order the module online or purchase the ConnectPlus module here: PBX10W00Y0. Order 2 modules if connecting both the washer and dryer.


Step 3

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

  1. Open the Laundry - GE Appliances App and sign in. From the Welcome screen, press OK.
  2. Find the network name and password on the back of the module.
  3. Open the App and go back to the "Have Connect Plus?" screen and press Next. Enter the password or take a picture of the password on the back of the module.
  4. Once the password is confirmed, plug the ConnectPlus module into the back of the appliance. The module is magnetic and will stick to the back of the control panel.
    • 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 ConnectPlus module. The App will perform the same functions, so the cable is no longer needed.
  5. Make sure the WiFi LED on the ConnectPlus module is flashing.
  6. Go to your phone's WiFi settings and choose the network name found on the ConnectPlus label. This will start communication between the App and the appliance.
  7. 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.
  8. The Connecting process will start and the WiFi LED will remain solid and no longer flash.
  9. The appliance is Connected once the LED is solid and the App says "Connected!"
