I was using my Karcher 350M pressure washer working fine but it just stopped having tripped the power boards circuit breaker. The breaker now trips each time I switch on the washer. There is no smell of burnt motor and the electric did not get wet when last in use. Appreciate any suggestions or tests that can be made. I have a decent multimeter. Thanks.

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!


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. ... Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer

WP DW Mod # GU1200XTLS0: this unit filled with water and just stopped running. I have power to the unit. The control panel does not light up at all. Its wierd that I have power to the board and all the wires seem to have power! No burnt spots and no burnt smell on the board.Hmmm! Door latch and switches all check ok. Oddly it seems like the line power to DW goes all the way thru the unit and back through the nutural wire. Could the motor windings be burnt out?


Hello , there should be a fuse located by or on the side of the board with 2 wires going to it , one from the latch and one from the board ,it does come off , use an ohm meter to check it , it should ohm out or have low resistance make sure to take t ...

I have a not quite 2 year old Kenmore dishwasher model #665.1322.(I believe built by Whirlpool) The motor has burnt out. That seems ridiculous to me when there is just my husband & I using it and I've had dishwashers in the past that have lasted 10 - 15 years. Anyways - we have no warranty so we thought we would try to replace th motor - but I can't find anything online. We live in south western Ontario - any suggestions of where we could find a replacement motor?


I have recently had the same problem with the same model. Do you think there's a connection? I'm going to report this to Consumer Reports. ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Whirlpool dishwasher part #3385181. Machine had gone thru wash cycle and was starting to dry. Smelled electrical burning smell, opened washer door and washer was filled with smoke. Turned everything off, cleared smoke, and the washer water dispenser is very hard to turn. Washer has symptoms of burnt up motor that turns water dispenser. Machine is 12 years old. With cost of replacement motor and possible part (pump?) that might have clogged and caused motor freeze up, is it worth fixing or junk

Burning smell from our Dishwasher.
