Good app that works
First, you have to have TKIP + AES security on your 2.4 wireless else your connection drops here and there. That is WPA Mixed Mode Personal. Also try channel 5 or vary the channel on your 2.4 network-and do not use auto for wireless channel selection. I was surprised to read comments that LG tech support said the ThinQ app does not work on iphones; yes, it does. I have used it for six months and it works fine. Recently, the fridge started dropping the internet connection after a new router. No one could help me except to point me to "the library". I resolved my issue by changing the 2.4 wireless setting for security. The fridge reconnected but when the internet connection drops, all devices reconnect but not the refrigerator until the security change on the modem; I also reserved a static ip for the fridge on my router. I like the app. I find it useful but LG should mention TKIP + AES. The energy estimates and door usage estimates are that: estimates. They give me an idea about the fridge operation. I especially like the one thing I really wanted: the app sends me a warning if the fridge door has been left open for more than two minutes. With kids, this is a winning feature. I like activating ice plus feature remotely, as well as changing temperature. The app works with my LG washer. For me, this app encourages me to buy LG products. It is not easy to set up but not hard either. You have to be patient. A good app all in all.
This all has some serious issues design wise. Very odd stuff like I have the ability to start a wash from the app, but not being able to start the drying cycle killing the convenience a smart app provides by making pretty useless since I have to get back home to finish the wash/dry cycle. The app is in Spanish for some reason and no option to change language (set up was in English though). There are many options in the app that reflect the actual buttons and function I can use on my washer/dryer combo, but about 90% of them are greyed out in the app without explaining why (it only lets me start a regular washing cycle which is just one of about 15 washing modes the machine has). Another dumb thing is that I need to physically push a button on the machine called remote mode to be able to use the app to set up a load and even dumber is the fact that while this remote mode is enabled I can’t monitor the was/dry cycle, it’s set up in a way where you can either control the machine with the app or monitor the wash/dry cycle with the app, but never both unless I walk to the machine and switch modes.
The only nice thing is that I get a push notification when the laundry load is done.
Please get your act together LG.
The actual appliances in combination with the app are awesome!!! I have a tendency to put a load of laundry and then forget all about it. The app helps keep me on task by alerting me when each load is done in the washer and dryer. If I’m not sure how much time is left on a load, it’s so easy to pull it up on the app to see how much longer it has to go. It’s also cool to keep track of the teenagers doing their chores unsupervised as well, as I still get the alerts - even if I’m not at home. Freaked my oldest out the first few times she did laundry while us parents were out of town - as I was able to tell her when the washer was done, LOL! Although, it would be even better if it could alert when the small pedestal washer is done as well. I’m happy to have appliances that work better for me, are more efficient, and help me be more efficient as well!!!😁😁😁
