Heres a part number for a power cord 8566201, it costs about $50.. the same cord you can purchase at the big hardware store chains, home depot or Lowes, a heavy duty extension cord, with one end cut off, will be a fine sustitute and probly only $10 tops.. just buy a real thick extension cord

Kenmore 665 no power

No power at all? First thing to check is that the dishwasher power cord is plugged in under the sink. Make sure the plug didn't become dislodged. Then, check the circuit breaker at the electrical panel to make sure the breaker didn't trip. Open up the door to the electrical panel and look for a switch marked "dishwasher" or "kitchen outlets." Switch it off and then back on to reset it. Those are the easy fixes. Next you'll need a repairman.

Unplug the washer and get a short HD extension cord and plug in to another KNOWN good (has power) outlet. Or plug in a small appliance where the washer was plugged in and see if it works. Designated outlet for washer could be defective. Never work on electrical devices until you have the correct breaker switched OFF. Good luck, best regards.

I cannot turn the printer on

These are the possible solutions:
  • Press power button.
  • Disconnect and reconnect the power cord. Plug the printer's power cord straight into an electrical outlet that other electrical devices have been using. Bypass any surge devices or power strips.
  • Unplug the power adapter from printer (rectangular black box inserted in the printer where the power cord is attached). With the power cord attached to it and other end plugged into the power outlet in the wall, check if it's warm/hot but not too hot, that means it's working fine.

If these does not help, it could be a possible defective power adapter issue. Please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance. Thanks.

Whirlpool 665-13442K901 dishwasher electrical plug in shorts out

You reversed the black and white wires on what? Don't ever do that. One is the line and one is common. They are polarized for a reason.
Immediately stop using that outlet before you burn your house down. Switch the breaker off to that power circuit, then have a qualified electrician check it out.

Cord heats up electric percolator when it makes coffee. What is the problem?

It is not unusual for this to happen - particularly near the ends (the plug end and the coffee pot end). This happens due to one or more of the following: at the coffee pot end the heating element inside the pot is actually transferring to the cord connector and the cord, where it is exposed to room temperature air and is cooled down. The cord shouldn't be warm more than a couple inches from the end. At the outlet end and the pot end: can be caused by weakened contacts inside the outlet itself. Repeated plugging and unplugging cords during an outlet's normal service eventually causes the spring of the contact metal to fatigue. The weakened contacts do not "grip" the prongs of the plug, so the power needed by the pot has less area to pass between the outlet and the prongs of the plug. You only notice it on the high power devices such as toasters, hair dryers, etc.

You might consider replacing the outlet and seeing if the problem is reduced or goes away. In the case of the pot, the spring metal contacts are usually in the cord connector. Replacement of the cord should solve the heat problem in this case.

Please take a moment to rate this advice is you found it helpful. Thanks - and good luck!

Plug does not go into outlet. Three blade plug with one "J" shaped blade. The outlet has three straight hole to acommodate three straight blades.

Replace the power cord to accomodate the outlet you have. You can purchase them at any hardware store for about $20. This is the easier option than trying to replace the outlet. To replace the cord follow these steps:

1. Remove the access cover on the terminal block on the back of the dryer. This is where the existing power cord is installed.

2. Remove the existing power cord from the terminal block.

3. Remove the power cord restraining clamp (if equipped). This secures the power cord at the entry point on the back of the dryer and prevents it from stressing the terminals and prevents chaffing of the outer insulation on the power cord. NOTE: Its a good idea to have this installed for safety reasons.

4. Remove the old power cord and install the new one following this color scheme at the terminal block:

RED (Hot) - 120VAC
BLACK (Hot) - 120VAC
WHITE (Neutral) - 0 VAC - Should be connected to the terminal block and grounded to the equipment cabinet via a grounding strap.

NOTE: If the power cord or wires at the terminal block are not color coded, the outer two wires (LEFT and RIGHT) are the two hot leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Kenmore dishwasher... filled up with water and its lights went off.. no buttons work acts like no power. check the house fuse box - ok ... check the 2 door switch - ok .. checked the thermal fuse - ok ...

Did you check power to the unit? Double check the common and grounds. When servicing I will disconect(unplug from wall) power to the unit. Is it pluged in? Use another outlet(the outlet under the sink may be wired thru a switch for a disposer)even if you need an extension cord. Hope this helps.

Electricity plug

Here is a little video to show exactly what to do. If you have an outlet to plug your dishwasher into just add a power cord to the connecting wires. Otherwise do as it shows in the video and hook the dishwasher up to a power cable coming from the electrical panel.
