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

Karcher K2.36 Pressure Washer I've just fired up my Karcher for the first time since last year and the motor started running fine, I then switched on the tap to allow the water through and the motor cut out. Now it won't restart, any ideas? I'm wondering whether the water supply should have been on before I switched the motor on but it's too late now! Help!


Answers :

The water must be switched on, and seen to be running freely from the nozzle for a few seconds before switching on the power - suggest you check the fuse in the plug, and then try the above.

I have a Karcher K3.48M electric pressure washer which used to shut off when you weren't using the cleaning wand. This no longer happens and there is alot of water running out of the bottom of the unit. (This didn't used ot be the case) I expect a leak somewhere inside the unit, but I'm wondering even more if there is a pressure switch which has failed that cased the leak. In other words, if I find and repair the leak and there is a failed pressure switch, it will likely only break again. I can'

My Dishwasher stopped working. When I switch it on there is a sound like a motor running, a kind of whirring sound. It sounds as if the machine is working normally but there is no water coming through it. Any ideas? Thanks, Paul


Hi There,\015\012\015\012That's the classic sign of water having leaked under the washing compartment/tub.

Our 2 drawer Fisher and Paykel dishwasher is automatically starting its own washing cycle (well, motor starts, but no water appears to be entering), then it shows F1 error message and a spanner icon flashes. Within 30 secs of this occurring on one drawer, this starts on the other drawer. Only way to stop is to switch off at power socket. Any idea what the error message is telling me?

Dear sir In an attempt to dislodge a blockage of my sewer line using Draino and a plunger some of the Drano ended up in the dishwasher and now the dishwasher will not run. My dishwasher is a SHU3036UC/U12. When starting the unit up it empties the unit but the cycle newer ends, in other words the timer does not advance to the next cycle, I have determined that the timer motor works by removing it from the unit and supplying it with power. One thought is, can the water level switch be stuck in

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

I have a JennAire jdb1090aws dishwasher. It's about 4 years old. The symptom is no water flowing through dishwasher. Approx 3 months after installation, the same symptom occurred. Tech resolved with float switch adjustment (no charge). Has run fine every since. I have not checked water supply, but doubt this is the problem (new water heater 3 months ago, sediment gone). I suspect the float switch is bad or out of adjustment. How do I trouble shoot float switch in dishwasher? Connect ohm mete

Dishwasher confused Dishwasher was switched off just after cycle commenced (tablet had been released). On restarting dishwasher, it wouldn't take in water and has just been going through the motions of the cycle without anything happening. Even when the power button on the machine is switched off or the door is opened, the motor continues to run but without water. Water is definitely switched on under sink. I think the computer is confused - can you please help?


I suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.most ... Dishwashers
