Use Smart Care on Your Washer and Dryer

Use Smart Care on Washer and Dryer

An error code just appeared on your washer or dryer, and you don't know what it means or how to get rid of it. You can use Smart Care to decipher error codes and get help resolving issues. Smart Care is a feature of the Samsung Smart Washer/Dryer app that lets you use your phone's camera to scan a code on the washer or dryer's display. The app will then translate the code and provide troubleshooting steps to solve the problem.

Smart Care does not use Wi-Fi and is available on many models that do not have Wi-Fi capabilities. (Smart Control or Smart Monitor indicates the model has Wi-Fi capabilities.)

If your model does not have Wi-Fi capabilities, Smart Care will still function, but all other features of the Samsung Smart Washer/Dryer app will not be compatible.
