Hi there I'm darran I'm a domestic engineer and refridgeration engineer  OK your correct the smart reader is needed by there are 2 different adaptors the high end for washers and dryers etc  and the low end adaptor for fridges I suspect you only have the one adaptor

The port is usually 1 bottom just of compressor or behind the cover on top panel
