Can't trust the kids to start the load of washing before you get home? Or want to have the cycle finish at a certain time just as you arrive finish work? You can easily create a Laundry Planner to conveniently start washing your clothes to finish at a particular time. Follow these quick and easy steps to setup a Laundry Planner using the SmartThings App.

Before setting up Laundry Planner:

  • Ensure you have added your compatible smart washing machine through the SmartThings App (scroll down to find the "compatible devices" option to check) 
  • Ensure you have Smart Control enabled on your washing machine, and both the washing machine and smartphone are connected to the same WiFi network (it may take some time for the washer to register, please wait a little after enabling Smart Control). Otherwise, the Laundry Planner function on the SmartThings App may be disabled.


  • The SmartThings App is available on Android and iOS devices. A Wi-Fi connection and a Samsung account are required. Data fees may apply.
