You may not have a ribbon cable that is keyed so you can only insert it in the right position. Try turning the connector upside down and see if it will fit. i tried both ways.. it is the same for the hard drive aswell

Can i use dishwasher and washing machine on multiple plug?

If you only have one wall socket where the washing machine and dishwasher are, then you could plug in a multi-plug adaptor, into which both appliances could then be plugged in. There are also multi sockets in a strip with a single plug on a short cable available. For instance, in my outhouse, I have a dryer and a washing machine that are plugged into a three way adaptor. The adaptor is then plugged into a RCD, or residual current device. Finally, the RCD is plugged into the single wall socket.

Weak fuel pump, plugged fuel filter, plugged catalytic converter, ignition system problem (not enough spark), plugged air filter.

Basically its probably not getting enough air or gas to accelerate properly.
