Based on your model information, there is no motor or pump available for this machine. The parts diagram only shows some of the external parts of the machine as being replaceable. The wheels, handle, water inlet connector, decals, but nothing internal is available. Unfortunately this happens a lot on electric machines due to cost of the motor and pump, it is less expensive to replace the machine than it would be to replace the motor and pump.You could always take the unit apart and see what happened, if the motor is the problem you may be able to have it repaired or you may find a replacement at a good electrical repair store. I don't know what stores are available in your area but somewhere like Grainger or Kirby Risk may be able to help you. Otherwise you will be replacing the machine.
