The British team, which also included Kristian Thomas, Nile Wilson and Brinn Bevan, had been in third place for most of the competition.
But faced a huge task on the final rotation after being nudged into fourth by reigning champions China.
Smith, with a top not on his head, then fell during a difficult routine.
Whitlock, the reigning world champion on the apparatus, held his nerve and put in an impressive performance, scoring 15.91 but it was not enough and GB missed out on bronze two points.

It came after Britain's 'bad a**' gymnast offered a glimpse into his preparation routine, hours before the men's team took on the sport's super-powers. 
But the nerves didn't seem to be getting him as he chronicled his Olympic experience for his fans on social media.
'Just chilling the village,' he said in a selfie video from the tennis courts in the Rio Olympic set-up.
'Watching Djokovic doing a bit of practicing, listening to Candy Shop by 50 Cent, just a normal day really, ha!'
