Maytag works with Hey Google for voice control of your connected appliances. Just say “Hey Google” on a Google Assistant-enabled device followed by a command such as, “preheat the oven to 350”.

Google Assistant is a voice assistant that is available via mobile and on your Google Assistant-enabled device. Once set up, you can use your voice to control your Maytag connected appliances.

No. As long as your Maytag® smart appliance is connected and online in your Maytag account and your Google Assistant-enabled device is online and functioning, you can use Google Assistant anywhere to activate and use your smart appliance. Note: remote functionality will still be restricted for safety as outlined in the Use and Care guide you received with your appliance.

Google Assistant will not notify you that something has completed unless you first ask Google Assistant to ask Maytag for the status. For automatic notifications, you can choose for notifications to appear on your mobile device through the Maytag® app.

Please repeat your command to Google Assistant after the activity light ring goes out. If you continue to have problems, please check your appliance’s connectivity via the Maytag® app.

Please check your smart appliance’s WiFi connection. Double check that the appliance shows as online within the Maytag® app. Please repeat your command to Google Assistant after the blue activity light ring goes out.

Please ensure your smart appliance is set to remote enable mode on the appliance. See your Use & Care guide for instructions on Remote Start & Pause. Google Assistant use of remote enable follows the same safety restrictions as does operation via the Maytag mobile app.

Please repeat your command to Google Assistant after the activity light ring goes out.
