Better living through technology...

I wonder, if any of you have had this happen....

We bought a Kenmore stack washer and dryer. The washer was not wanting to go into a full spin. So, I called the service dept. They put me on with a tech expert. She asked, if I was in front of the machine. Yes...she said put the phone an inch away from the start button on the washer...I'm thinking WHAT????? but, I did it. She then had me push another button and wait for three beeps. I'm looking around for candid camera or my hubby laughing his buns off at the dork who fell for this one. She comes back on and says, your machine indicates you over suds it. This is how to fix the problem!!! Can you believe how technology has made our life so much easier...no repair man!!!!! This amazed me that washer are now able to talk to us!!!

Another job lost---the washer repairman.

I agree Roxann and Aida...it was nice not having a repair man in the house! They should tell you about this stuff when you 're buying it!

If only,  a self-cooking kitchen would be invented, a vacuum cleaner that starts to clean when it senses that the floor is dirty, and most of all, a hubby who'd just go and cook whatever he wants to eat, and not ask "What's for dinner?" (Ok, that last one does not require modern technology, but then, can we really teach an old dog new tricks?)

I wish that worked when DH wasn't working right.  I can see his face if I just held the phone up to his brain. :) 

I'm sort of a techy so I love that kind of stuff.  Plus no creepy repair man comming to my house in the middle of nowhere when DH is at work and I'm home alone.......yes please!  I'm glad everything is in working order!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

How wild! Guess it beats a costly bill to have someone physically show up to discover this. There are no secrets anymore!

I'm going with the "creepy" delegation. Still, I'm glad you got your washer fixed.

Good grief!  Creepy is the word!  The remotes on the TV, cable box, and blue ray player and I are barely on speaking terms!  27-year-old DS thrives on this stuff; but I feel so inept!

Incredible!  I may have been so convinced that this was a joke, I'd have hung up.

The 1st time I had that happen was when my husband bought his first big screen tv.  Our son Corey was working for an electronic store at that time so he bought his dad this fancy schmancy remote control that did everything but pay the cable bill each month.  I had to put a cd in my computer and then hold the old remote up to the new one and follow the directions on the computer so that the new one could copy all of the previous settings.  It would even tell me to move it a little bit this way & then a little bit that way.  You all can imagine what was going through my dirty mind while that was happening!  LOL   My new washer & dryer have blue tooth capabilities and my husband can hear them through his hearing aids.  So if it sings to me & I can't hear it because I'm sewing, he will yell out from the other room "Your washer is singing to you again."  Oh, technology, where would we be today if it weren't for things like this?!
