The washer (or dryer) isn’t set to remote control

The washer (or dryer) isn’t set to remote control

Alexa is saying “The washer (or dryer) isn’t set to remote control” What do I do?

Please ensure your smart appliance is set to remote enable mode. See your Owner's Manual for instructions on Remote Start & Pause. Alexa use of remote start and control follows the same safety restrictions as does operation via the Whirlpool mobile app
