Having problems with your Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer ?

Turn on-off switch to on and unit hums, motor does not push water.


Answers :

From what you have explained it sounds like the capacitor for the motor is bad. The capacitor is what gives the motor the extra kick to get up and moving when you flip the machne on.

Bosch shu8806 Hello, I aquired a shu8806 recently and it doesn't work. It has power and water. I push wash cycle, indicator light comes on, shut door and nothing happens.  So the door switch seemed like a good place to start. Since I am an electrician I thought I would give it a shot. When plugged in, the wire from the motor is 120V but when jumpered to the neutral(common on the door switch), motor doesn't operate. Although, I have heard the motor turn over momentarialy when trying to run unit e

Dishwasher is reading "overfilling", but no water is in unit. Door can open, noise of motor or pump continues and will not shut off even with the Power switch. Only way to stop noise is to turn off the circuit breaker at the electrical panel. What does this sound like to you?

Maytag DWU6402AAB dishwasher hums but motor does not run. I've taken the inside apart down to the disk-shaped impeller. It turns freely so the pump and motor are not stuck. When control knob is turned motor hums at the places where it normally should run. The water valve & heating coil seem to be operationg normally. i assume the next step is to test the motor &/or motor relay. Is this correct and how do I do that?

FDB750RCC1 When I start the DW, the motor hums loud then soft then loud then soft...if I advance the dial some sections of the cycle nothing will be running and others the motor is on, but no water is getting into the unit. I just replaced the inlet valve and solenoid and that didn't change anything. I can see water in the recirculating pipe running up the unit, but it will just try to make it up and fall back down. Not sure how to proceed...my thoughts would lead me to the main motor, but


Can you hear the water solenoid click when it calls for water? If so, check that the water source valve is on and water comes out of the valve. Check the entry hose for kinks.

When i turn my Viking dishwasher on the motor starts to run but no water comes out. It was humming along for several hours before i realized that nothing was really happening. I turned it of and then tried again but the same thing happened. It sound like a motor and/or pump working but no water enters the chamber. Thanks, Jonathan


It sounds like the Water Supply Solenoid is bad. I would change that and let all of us know what happens. ... Dishwashers

I have a General Electric Potscrubber dishwasher. When the cycle is finished, the water does not drain into the sink.I turned the unit upside down to look into the bottom. The motor turns freely. The instruction sheet I found in the bottom of the unit said to remove the filter screen and check the piston valve. I looked at what I thought was the piston valve, but I'm not sure how to check it. The line to the sink seems to be clear. The model of my unit is GSC3230Z03WW. The serial number is AZ627

Kenmore (Whirlpool) 655 1589910 Dishwasher. Fills with water, motor makes horrible noise (buzzing / loud hum). Dishes do not wash and there is no evidence that any water pumped up to the spray arms. Spray arms are not clogged. We have a fully functioning water softener so it is not a hard water issue. Unit does drain normally. Either filter is badly clogged or pump is bad.

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

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

Eventually another loud motor seems to turn on and drain the water out of the machine. The soap dispenser usually opens and the soap block that usually dissolves is setting on the bottom of the machine. It seems the water is plenty hot but the rotating washer arms might not be moving.

Dishwasher is 16 months old. Recently, it won't get tea stains from spoons or cups and there is a white film on plastics. I have run unit once with vinegar. I tried using less detergent and no change (Cascade Complete). (Neighbors using same detergnet on different machine with no problems so it's not the water.) I always select High water temp and air dry on normanl wash. My hunch is that the motor is going bad and therefore it is not pushing the water with enough force.


Hello, there are a few thinks to check on the dishwasher. Circulation, drainage - no backflow back into tub, and water temp.

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?
