Question about Kenmore Washing Machines

Honda EU2000i with a washing machine

I want to buy a Honda EU2000i generator for my Baja casita, but I'm not sure if it will run my 12 amp washing machine (an old Kenmore) without damaging the washer motor or tripping the overload. The generator plugs are rated at 13.3 amps, and the tag says 16 amps. 
Separately, I'd also like to use this generator to quietly charge my solar system's golf cart batteries on cloudy days, but the DC charger plug looks kind of small. Would the EU2000i be adequate for this job as well? 
Thanks! Sally Roderick

    I have the IWB6103 Indesit washing machine. The problem is it will not run when the generator is running. The generator is 27Kva and it can run the whole house but when we try to use the washing machine...

    I would avoid using the washer. You could burn the control panel or something else. The electronic is very sensitive. It's possible that your Hz from generator are not 60Hz, or your voltage is fluctuating, another possibility is that the wiring is reversed (hot and neutral switched).

    27 KVA is a huge generator and should work just as well as the grid. The only thing I can think of is the startup current, which can easily be 5 times the running current is playing havoc.

    You might try tightening up all your lugs and screws in your panel. A loose neutral can create some truly weird problems.

    Generator vs mains power

    Sometimes power is not clean enough for electronics. Other times the starting current is too high. You maybe able to make it work through some sort of isolating transformer or choke to clean up the power. Look into those suggestions. Also have you tried not plugging the machine in until the generator is up and running. The startup might be messing with the electronics.

    My power washer has A 5 HP, 7 AMP 3 PHASE MOTOR. I am starting a mobile power wash business, and need to be able to run it off a generator with 220v power. can I find a motor to change it over with, and...

    You never mentioned the voltage on your present power washer except it is a 5HP, 7 Amp , 3 phase one. There are no issues if the washer is 220-230 mains power and all you need is a generator which can deliver about 10-15 amps at 220 volt.

    Our whirlpool awm5145/5 washing machine is blowing fuses where it's plugged in usually and it won't work in the plugs on the same wall but when we plug it in a different wall it will work fine?

    This sounds like an overload from the Ring circuit house wiring...Most rings here in u.k. are 32 amp.this should be okay for small oven /Micowave/ kettle / if the washing machine is running at 3000watts or 12 amps and a kettle is also the same total load is 24 amps.....If the machine blows the breaker/or fuse on its own I suggest looking at the wiring on the supply socket or better still contact an Electrician......

    Already took off pump & cleared out $12 in change but still will not pump all water out or spin out. can hear pump running but think the damage has already been done. would it be pump or pressure...

    If the washing machine won't fill up, make sure that the water supply valves are turned on. Next, make sure there are no kinks in the supply hoses that run from the supply valves to the washing machine. If nothing is obstructing the hoses, you may have another controls issue.

    Several of the washing machine controls are also responsible for the washing machine not draining, continuing to fill or filling too slowly. If the washer doesn't want to drain or stop filling, the issue could be the pressure switch. When water enters the machine, water also fills a tube in the pressure switch. When the air pressure reaches a certain point, it triggers a switch that will stop the machine from filling. Locate this pressure switch on your machine and look for damage. If you have a multimeter, use it to find any electrical issues. If there is no reading, the pressure switch needs to be replaced.
