Having problems with your Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer ?

Karcher K 3.97M electric presuure washer cycles on/off.

\015 The pressure washer will cycle on & off when the trigger on the spray wand is not depressed. It runs and sounds normal when the wand is in use. The spray pressure has decreased over the 3 years (2006) that I have owned the machine. It was only in the 3rd year that this cycling problem started.\015

Hi;
It has an internal water leak or a seal or valve is leaking air. These machines are warrantied for 2 years and that is about all you can expect from them. Having it repaired professionally would cost about 75% the price of a new machine. If you are handy enough to get into it yourself, e-mail me and I will send you a diagram. ([email protected]) Part prices are expensive in Canada but not bad in the US. I don't know about other countries.

My GSD3600 GE Dishwasher will not finish/start a cycle. The washer filled with water and during the cycle I heard a pop like someone knocked something over in the kitchen. I smelled an electrical burning smell. All the lights and the buttons work on the front panel, but when I try to start I hear an electrical buzz like it is trying to start, but nothing happens and after 3 seconds the electrical buzzing stops and the lights on the panel flash. I removed the dishwasher and found that when I hit


Hello Greg,\015\012\015\012Your diagnosis is pretty good, but the buzzing suggests it may be the capacitor for the pump motor that has failed rather than the pump motor itself. The capacitor phase-shifts the AC current for starting the mo ... GE 24 in. GSD3960LSS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

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
