  5. Unlock, select program and start
    The app will unlock the machine for up to 15 minutes before use. Start washing machine or dryer in the usual way. Swipe right on the machine display panel to see all program choices. Select the desired program and press start. Note! In Kaialundveien and Høglimyra student home, detergent is included.

Here's how to start a machine

When you have a user in appWash, you can pre-book your washing machine and dryer 15 minutes before you arrive.

  • Select a machine available in the app.
  • Find the machine you chose - check that the number on the machine matches the one you chose in the app. The machines are marked with numbers. Open the door and put your clothes in.
  • Tune in to the desired program. NOTE: Touch the display panel and swipe right to bring up more program choices than those you see right away.
  • Press start.
  • Note that the app counts the time spent and not the time left. The app notifies you when your laundry is done. The amount of time your washing or drying takes to complete depends on the weight of clothes you have in the machine. The less clothes, the faster it goes - because the machines are sensor controlled.

Do you want to start multiple machines at the same time? Then you have to repeat the booking procedure in the app for each machine you want to start.

Use dryer

A regular laundry contains 2-3 liters of water. This means that if you hang the laundry to dry in the apartment, without venting well, this can cause mites and bacteria. We recommend using a dryer as much as possible.

If you have no other option than to hang the laundry inside your home, it is important that you ventilate well.

What to do if you do not get registered?

The most common error occurs when you enter your phone number, during SMS verification, and when you enter your email address. Please try again. If you still can't make it, contact
