Re: Smartphone App to diagnose appliance problems by listening
I saw the episode and it appeared to me that you have to put the appliance into "diagnostic mode" where it transmits digital diagnostic data via sound like a modem. Your iPad listens to this sound and decodes it back to digital data which it then presents to you in a friendly format.
It doesn't actually diagnose that funny kaLunk-vzhhh sound your dishwasher started making last night.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
