Having problems with your Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer ?

I am getting a buzzing noise from my electric motor. i tried changing the capacitor but still no change. The motor starts up sometimes but starts making a noise.Isusupect the winding or a bearing in the electric motor. How do I strip the motor from the pump?


Answers :

First thing you must check the machine with load, without load with water fed, and without load with no water fed. Then check the simpler cause. See if the cooler fan is hitting the casing.
\015\012If you check machine without pressure load and without water and still buzz...then the motor has a bearing fault or other fault.
\015\012The head of the pump can be removed from the motor. Carefull because as you remove you will have the springs of the pistons pushing out. Now under the pistons and complete head you find "Oil". Remove this oil and you find a thrust bearing. Remove bearing by hand and you see a plate..held by a screw(most cases). In my opinion I always send the motor to a winder, even for bearing replacement. But if you know how to replace damaged bearings..go ahead. One small thing..if you have a chance, try the motor on its own without the head( this is tecnician work)...if it still buzz..it is for sure the motor. Also it is wise to check the pistons at the head. If these are scratched or damaged and stuck...they will also have caused unnesessary load on the electric motor. When putting back all things together it is wise to replace all seals.

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

Makes rumbling noise during wash cycle. I've pulled the pump and found no debris. It's been making this noise for about a year now. No problems with our dishes getting washed. Do you think the bearings inside the motor may be bad? If so, would I need to replace the motor and pump assembly?

Home Depot has a lawn mower with the Honda GCV160 Electric start version engine. They also have a pressure washer with the Honda GCV160 engine.

My Siemens dishwasher SL34A sometimes makes loud vibration noises from the supply line at the water pump connection. I can turn off the water and back on it will quit, but sometimes starts again. And it does not matter how open or closed the supply line valve is either. I'm told it is likely the water pump, but this model has a combination water pump/motor assembly and I do not care to put another $230 into it. thx, TS.

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.

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

As soon as the motor starts up after the dishwasher fills, the motor makes a loud grinding noise that turns into high pitch whining. Water begins leaking from above the pump.


That shows a leaking water seal. Water would run into the motor bearings which then rust and make noise. You probably need the motor / pump kit. ... Dishwashers

I have the Kitchen aid KUDS01DL dishwasher. It was working fine until last week. When starting a cycle, the washer fills with water. Once filled, the motor makes a humming noise and does not circulate the water. I end up stopping the cycle and the discharge pump empties the water. I took apart and cleaned the basin this morning. I did find some random garbage but it did not seem blocked. Do you have any ideas?

Frigidaire dishwasher M#fbd1050rem2 - When started water fills for a short while, then makes a constant 'whirring' sound without any wash. This sound seems to be the motor running but no pumping. When cancel button is pressed , unit drains well and complete. Am I correct to assume this is the wash impeller?

Hi I have a mdb6601awb maytag dishwasher. Sometimes when it starts the wash cycle it will make a loud squelling noise. Then if you pull on the handle and stop it, the machine will start and sometimes the noise will be gone. Or you may have to do this 3 or 4 times before it will stop making the squelling noise. I do notice when I pull up on the handle to stop the machine it makes some clicking noises and then the noise goes away. Thank You for any help you may be able to give me!!!

My kenmore/whirlpool dishwasher makes a noise, sort of a grinding noise, throughout most of the cycle. I have removed the pump and motor thinking that their might be something in the pump, but there is nothing there. My guess is that the motor is making the noise, but I do not know how to tell other than by replacing the motor and seeing if the noise goes away.

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti


I doubt that it has anything to do with the capacitor on the motor. i think you are having a problem with the actual Motor Drive circuitry. What is happening is when you close the switch, this tells the Motor to "Ramp Up" to pump the water out, what ... Craftsman Pressure Washers
