I bought a pack of 2 smartplugs on best Buy the other day and I was just wondering if I could use these smart plugs to connect my washing/dryer machines for energy monitoring/notifications only. I do not intend to turn on or off the appliances. 

 

Washing machine uses 120V plug

Dryer machine uses gas and 120V plug


The washing machine is a Whirlpool HE

 

There are no specific specs presented on the machine, unfortunately.

 

 

 

 

Dryer is a General Electric HE

 

The specs presented are as shown:

When use Kasa smart plug with a machine with a motor in it, there is an instantaneous peak power value you need to consider: 

Please check Q13: What kind of power appliance can be powered on by TP-Link Smart plug?

The washing machine or dryer machine should have exceeded the horsepower >1 horse power which is around 700W that a smart plug could handle, and it is not recommended to use them with a smart plug.
