Set up WiFi on a Siemens washing machine

With Siemens washing machines with WiFi, you still have to load the laundry into the machine yourself, but with Siemens Home Connect, you have access to useful functions. To use these, your washing machine must first be registered onto your WiFi network, but how does this work exactly? You can read about it in this article.

Step 2: start registration

Router Siemens washing machine

Start the registration of the washing machine onto your WiFi network. This is easiest if your router has a so-called WPS function. If your router doesn't have this, you can connect the washing machine manually. Note: some Siemens models follow a different process. You'll notice this when your display shows other options than indicated below. In this case, look in the manual for your washing machine.
