Should give internal temp
While the Cafe 4 dr French Door refrigerator itself does not give internal temperature on the display and only shows the setpoint, the internal temperature Hass to be available to the electronics in order to run the fans and compressor. This information should be available inside the app. Right now the app only indicates if the temperature is too warm, akin to old fashion “idiot lights“ on automobiles. EDIT 8/3/21 The push notifications if a refrigerator door is open is almost instantaneous on my phone. Other than that, the app does what it is supposed to do.
Additionally there should be better instructions on connecting the refrigerator to Wi-Fi, noting that 5 MHz radio should be turned off on routers during the initial handshaking, as well as if there is a mesh network (much more common nowadays) all satellite mesh devices should be powered down except for the main device. This was what was necessary as confirmed by tech-support in order to connect my refrigerator to Wi-Fi.

Not functioning for GE washer dryer
The app was awesome until the new iOS came out, now it doesn’t function properly. I was able to open the app and see thrasher and dryer active state and history, and that it was sending notifications, however the notifications do not come through. After verifying my phone settings and app setting did not change with any of the updates, I force updated my app. When that didn’t work, I tried deleting and reinstalling my washer and dryer. Still no cycle notifications. Then I deleted the app and reinstalled it, and I cannot log back in, it says the password is incorrect. So I attempted to reset the password via the forgotten password link, and that seemed successful, but when I try to log back in I get a message that says “invalid credentials”.
The Wi-Fi cycle notifications may seem like a minor thing, but for me, a forgetful person with a lot going on, they are a lifesaver. Yesterday I completely forgot a load of towels in the washer, and had to rewash them today because they sat overnight and half the morning and already didn’t smell fresh again. It’s a total bummer that this isn’t working and hasn’t been for a little over a week now. I don’t have an issue with any of my other apps, so I’m pretty sure it’s the app and not my phone.

Happy with my W/D💙
So far I have no complaints for my washer or dryer. They clean and dry extremely well, with plenty of options in each appliance. We opted for the washer without the self dispensing detergent feature because we were concerned about the tubes, etc. becoming clogged with detergent overtime. We saw no indication that this possibility was addressed with a flushing system after each wash and that’s probably needed if they want to have that handy feature without burdening buyers with future repairs but we could’ve overlooked something. All that said, that is literally the only feature I would want to add. Well, they need to continue working on the ventilation system to dry the area around the door seal after each wash. I don’t really see how that’s doing a whole lot? To avoid the possibility of mold, we try to be diligent about letting the door air out at the end of our wash week or wipe it down. Not a super big deal.
All in all, a solid machine so far, enjoying the WiFi feature that notifies me when loads are ✅.
