Washing Machine Start Command

Anyone managed to get their washer to start either from the SmartThings app (with one click) or IFTTT with one action?

 

It looks like when the device goes to 'sleep' mode, the usual 'start' command will not wake it up and get it working. I contacted support and they said that sleep mode was a solution to save money... no kidding... I can't get it to switch on!

 

Anyone found a solution?

Hi @BarringtonK 

 

Did you manage to get this sorted or are you still having the same issue?

still having the issue...

Control of the device is not available through SmartThings automation.

Done all the usual stuff. Forced stop, delete cache, delete memory, uninstall, reboot, reinstall added washer again etc.

AHH sorry this is a different issue.
Yea the sleep on the washer stops it from being controlled. Bit stupid really!

I've been testing this today.
The device only goes to sleep when smart control is selected and the washer is connected.

Looks like Samsung designers have got this the wrong way around!

OK some progression!
Ditched Samsung SmartThings - just couldn't get it to work.

Works using IFTTT and the old Samsung washer app

BUT once the machine has gone to sleep (or a connected Standby mode) only commands wake it up. Nothing wakes it up and starts the wash cycle.

 

Anyone know how to stop this?
