Making Troubleshooting Easier with Smart Care (WA50K8600)

If the washer displays an information code, you can use Smart Care to check the status of the washer on a smartphone. To use Smart Care, you must have the Samsung Smart Care app installed on your smartphone.

Installing Samsung Smart Washer App on Your Smartphone

Smart Care is optimized for Samsung Galaxy and Apple iPhones. (Not compatible with some models). Download the Samsung Smart Washer app from the Google Play™ Store or the Apple App Store® and install it on your smartphone.  

Download the Android™ App.    Download the iOS™ App.

If an information code appears on the washer, follow these steps:

  1. Press and hold Fabric Softener for 3 seconds to activate Smart Care.

  2. Open the Smart Care app on your smartphone.

  3. Put the smartphone’s camera close to the display of the washer. The app automatically recognizes the information code, and displays suggestions on your smartphone.

  4. If the smartphone fails to recognize the information code more than twice, type the information code manually into the Smart Care app.

    • If light is reflected on the display of the washer, the smartphone may not recognize the information code.

    • If you hold the smartphone at an angle to the washer’s display, the smartphone may not recognize the information code. For best results, hold the smartphone so that the front of the panel and the smartphone are parallel or nearly  parallel.

    • After you use this function, the washer will delete the record of the information code from its code log.
