Arksen power washer 014-hg-14141 I'm trying to find repair information. can't find anyone to work on a electric power washer...if I had a scematic I could probably fix it myself.

Dear Tom,
Check and see if your unit was make in China.
Then, post your unit and the model number online and see if a dealer or manufacturer shows up.
If you have a Chinese model, there may not be parts available for it. You might tear it down and find no parts available to fix it.
This has happened to me many times.
God bless your efforts.

Breaker kicks off as soon as switch is turned on

the gfci is defective from moisture even after they dry they can be defective,access the cord inside the machine and try a different cord and see if this is your problem,otherwise the pump motor could be bad,the bypass valve on the pump could be bad,if you could run it you could check current draw with an amprobe,but not if it wont start

I have a 9 yr old KUDS01IJBSO and there is no power to the control panel and the breaker is not tripped. Is this likely to be an electronic control panel failure?

check the outlets, may be a GFI outlet tripped, check the switches with washer on. If you have aluminum wire in house may be the connection to the washer.

When i plug it in it trips my gfi and it is not on

This can be caused by one of two things. (1) The GFI plug has a problem: it could be broken behind the face plate, or some of the wires in the box are so close that when you push a plug into the outlet, they touch and trip the GFI. (2) The other source is due to a defect in the appliance between the cord and the power switch. That is why the GFI faults even before it the coffee maker is turned on.

Have the outlet checked thoroughly and make any needed adjustments / repair /replacement and reconnect the coffee maker again. If it trips, the coffee maker will need to be serviced. DO NOT use the coffee maker in another non-GFI outlet until it has been checked out. The chances of electrical shock or burns is significant until the problem is found and corrected.

This is a serious situation. It means there is a short circuit somewhere. You need to have a certified technician or electronics person look into it.

The washer fills just fine, but when it starts to agitate, it trips the GFI outlet. It's not the outlet, we tried 3 of them. The washer works just fine if it's plugged into a non-GFI outlet. Any ideas?

I do home inspections, and this is a no-no! GFI devices are not real happy with inductive loads, such as motors and refrigerators. Generally during home inspections, we find that GFI's older than 10 yrs. have a 75% failure rate using a sophisticated tester. The 5 yr. old devices are at 50%. I'd replace that outlet with a single outlet, dedicated to the washer. If it's near a sink, then you're required to stick with the GFI. I'd just repalce it with a new one. Good Luck!!

ok when the machine is less than one year the warranty is still in effect. Please contact Kenmore prior to opening up the machine as it will void the warranty.

3 audible beeps every 20-25 seconds

Try unplugging the washer for about 20 minutes then plug back in and use. I have found that this actually works! The only thing I can figure out is that it takes time for the electronic control to clear. If that doesn't fix the problem I would call sears tech since it is less than a year old. They have a 1-2 year warranty.
