    Default 230v Motor Wiring

    I acquired this older pressure washer recently and it had no cord on it. It is 230v 1 phase. I am guessing it is a capaciter start/capacitor run motor due to the way the caps are set up in the box. My issue is that there are only 2 connectors on the switch which I would assume are for the 2 hot leads but there is nowhere for the neutral wire to connect. If I can figure out how to attach pictures I will post them.

    Unless there's a 120volt component in there, there doesn't need to have a common. 2 hots and a ground.
