Having problems with your Alfred Karcher K 5.93 M Electric Pressure Washer ?

When switched on it works for 20-30 seconds, then it humms but no compressor then it stops making a noise but works intermitently for short bursts


Answers :

Sounds like a motor problem. It could be that the brushes are worn in the motor. They should be under 2 plastic screw caps attached to springs. They should be a square carbon at the end of the spring about half inch long.

Hi - My Electrolux ESL63010 dishwasher seems to be stuck mid programme. It was part way through a programme when we had a pipe burst. Pipe all sorted now but the dishwasher just makes a noise like it is asking for water but nothing happens. When you open the door, it makes three short beeps and the light flashes on the programme menu. Any ideas how to solve? It definitely is not the pipes as the washing machine feeds from the same pipe and is working fine. Help!

Code F2 I just replaced the door switch on an inoperable DD-602. My top drawer was working fine, but my bottom one has been offline for a while (door switch failed and I never got around to fixing it since I had the top). Well, my top finally failed too so I replaced both switches. Looks like everything is good on the top, but my bottom is erroring with an F2 code now. Kindof makes a thumping noise as it starts the cycle -- maybe 3-5 short thumps and then a 10 second delay, repeats. Any ideas? C

My dishwasher is working well but makes an intermittent whistling noise, 10 seconds 'on', 10 seconds 'off'. The machine is 2 years old and runs on water from a softening unit (less than 0.7 moles/litre). None of the manual's suggestions has worked. How can I stop this noise? Thanks, Jim.


This is caused by a partially blocked valve or inlet, it is a little blocked, and this sound you hear is the air pushed through it making a sound. You need to clean out the inlet valves. \012\012\012 ... AEG 24 in. Favorit 80860iW Built-in Dishwasher

I have a mdd8000aws dishwasher. After a power outage (2 days) the power came back on, and the bottom drawer no longer works. It still make the chiming noise when the drawer is opened, but the control panel is not fully lit up and the washer will not start in any mode. The lights seem to flicker for a short moment and then they all stay very lightly lit up. Is this just a bad control panel or is there some other circuit that needs replaced? BTW, the top drawer works perfectly.

I have a LG intello dishwasher 2050SH Turned it on yesterday and did a rinse. This was the first use for 4 months in our second home. It was very cold. The rinse stopped some way through and an error message displayed (cannot remember). Tried to run again and now the dsiplay is locked. It turns on with usual sound, but none of the buttons work. They make a noise when pressed but nothing on the dsipay changes. I suspect that the outlet was frozen and that I should not have tried again - too im

Our ESD310 has a message of OP on the screen. It will come on and run on its own if the door is shut, counting down from 2. When I can get it to turn on and start a cycle it runs a bit, skips a bunch of time, runs a little more, and then skips time again counting down from 2. The high temp wash button will light up on it's own while running. The cancel button does not work. It acts as if it has a short, makes funny noises, and I'm afraid it's going to catch on fire.

Bosch SHV46C Bosch dishwasher (SHV46C13UC) doesn't "start". When I start the cycle, it makes a noise but doesn't fill with water. The drain pump is working because I poured water into the basin and watched it disappear. The noise that it's making is a constant low-toned rumble/hum. I sometimes would hear this noise at the end of a cycle when things were working fine.

Motor makes noise shortly after starting, makes normal sound level during main body of wash, then makes noise again during what I'm guessing is the rinse cycle. Not sure if it is a pump or motor problem. Slight electrical smell noticed after finishing the ''cancel/drain''. Water does not seem to be sprayed around washer during normal cycle, even though water has been in the washer.


Make sure the sprayer arm is turning freely, check for something stuck in the base of the sprayer arm (food or utinsel) preventing it from turning. ... Dishwashers

Hello, Our kitchenaid DW has stopped working. Non of the buttons cause a any of the lights to turn on. Of course, it will not start. On its last working cycle, it had a very strange washing cycle. It almost sounds like the water was not splashing around (even though I opened it while it was working and noticed water at the bottom). I checked the circuit breaker, and it is not tripped. For a couple of weeks, the DW had started making a kind of metallic noise while in the washing cycle. Also,
