How Do I Connect My LG Dishwasher to Wi-Fi?

If you own a Wi-Fi enabled LG dishwasher, you can easily set up and troubleshoot its Wi-Fi connectivity. However, not all LG dishwasher models are Wi-Fi enabled, so you need to check this before proceeding.

Here are six steps to help you connect your LG dishwasher to Wi-Fi:

Step 1: Download the LG ThinQ application from either the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store.

Step 2: Sign in or create an account to use with the ThinQ app.

Step 3: Check if your LG dishwasher has a ThinQ logo or an NFC tag on the cabinet. If it has a ThinQ logo, you can proceed. However, if it has an NFC tag on the logo, it will not use Wi-Fi to connect to the internet.

Step 4: Check if you have a 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, or dual-band wireless router. If you have a 2.4 GHz network, you can connect your LG dishwasher. If you have a 5 GHz network, you will need to check if a 2.4 GHz option is available. If you have a dual-band router, select the 2.4 GHz SSID to connect your appliance.

Step 5: Check the distance between your router and the smart dishwasher. If it is within 30 feet, you can continue with the connection. However, if it is farther than 30 feet, the connection may be unstable.

Step 6: Determine what type of smartphone you use to connect. If you have an Android phone, select the dishwasher in the ThinQ app and follow the on-screen prompts to connect. If you have an iPhone, select the dishwasher in the ThinQ app and follow the on-screen prompts to connect. Then, go to settings and press Wi-Fi, select LG Smart Dishwasher, enter the last four digits twice from the Wi-Fi name, select the name of your Wi-Fi network, enter the password, and press connect.

Once you have completed these six steps, your LG dishwasher will be connected to Wi-Fi. If you need further assistance, you can visit
