Not sure why
Posted by: acmtn from: on
Purchased these for my new washer and dryer (xx45K6500xx series).
Setup was pretty straight forward once I figured out that these adapters were not compatible with my new AC access points. I was unable to complete the setup until I connected the washer and dryer to the wifi on an older (non AC) router. Maybe I could have gotten them to work on the newer access points, but wasn't really worth the effort to me, since the adapter doesn't talk directly to your phone app, but instead uses Samsung as a middle tier. This means that your phone and washer/dryer do not necessarily need to be on the same WiFi network. You have to do the setup for each new phone. So if you have two phones, you will do the security setup on the washer twice and on the dryer twice.
On to functionality...once you have everything setup and talking, if you want to control your washer or dryer from your phone, you have to power on, close the door, and press the Smart Control button on each appliance…which is so much better than setting your washer or dryer cycles while standing in front of them. Btw, once the load is done, and the washer or dryer powers off, you will have to repeat the steps, including manually turning the Smart Control back on.
So what do you get if you don't use Smart Control? You can monitor the progress of your wash/dry load, and you will get notifications if something goes wrong or the load completes. Samsung gets to monitor the appliances and collect data on how you use your washer and dryer.
I can see this being useful in a roommate situation, or perhaps your in-house staff should be kept apprised whilst they perform other chores, or your house is so large that you can’t hear the annoying 30 second completions tones, or you have $50 burning a hole pocket and you just like technology, or you must obsessively monitor the status of your washing/drying, or you want to make sure Samsung is in the loop on your laundry…well then, these adapters might be just the ticket.
For me they are a bit like adding a 5th tine to a fork…sure you can…but why?

The functionality gained by purchasing these is minimal and you must manually turn the feature on every time you turn on the washer or dryer. Save yourself the $50 and go out to a nice dinner.

Great service - ok product
Posted by: Lectraglide from: on
This is an "ok"product, lets you know when your load is done, but not much further functionality, besides troubleshooting. This should be something that should come with washer purchase, in my opinion.

Three stars is accurate
Posted by: ammcbride from: on
I wanted to be the first on to give this a positive review. Unfortunately, this device is exactly as the other reviews indicate. I ran into a minor glitch in set up but it was easily resolved. It connects to the internet fairly easily. In order for this device to work, you must press the Smart Control button. On the washer, it locks the door. I thought you would be able to see the status of you loads or get a message when complete. Only if you press the smart control button. if you don't the appliances are offline. So, if I load the washer with clothes, why would I want to take these extra steps to have my phone control this? It takes time for it to connect to the internet and this slows the process down. I don't think I will ever use it. As the previous reviews indicate, don;t waste your money on this device. Hopefully, Samsung will develop a firmware update to improve this. Samsung is better than this.

It adds wifi capability although limited
Posted by: joaquin988 from: on
You can do a few things with the app although setup has to be done for each phone and it is a pain. It helps a little if your washer/dryer is in the basement. Still needs work but ok for the price.

Works after a couple of tries
Posted by: idmh from: on
It's a pretty straightforward device. Just plug it into your dryer (I had a Samsung 14 Cycle Electric Dryer, Model DV50K7500EV), install the Samsung Smart Home app and then follow the instructions on screen for adding the washer/dryer.
I had some issues when I added my dryer for the first time. The smart home app told me that there was a problem with my dryer's wifi connection and gave me some unhelpful advice about my internet connection. I removed the dryer and added it back again, and it magically worked the second time around.

Works but the needed iOS/Android app is useless
Posted by: jrud05 from: Leitchfield, KY on
These seem to work as they should, they connect to the router. However, we don't get the benefit of having these because the Samsung Smart Home app is absolutely terrible. At first I was getting notifications when my loads were done but I'd have to make sure to open the Samsung app on my phone or I'd never get a notification. Now, it only tells me when a door is open or something and never when a load is done nor does it tell me how much time is left anymore. Samsung needs to work on their Smart Home app so that these adapters actually do their job!!
