    Do you mean will a single phase motor interfere with a power line that carries data as well as mains power?

    1) It depends on the motor - whether it induces harmonics in the power line.

    2) It depends on the quality of the filtering system interfacing the data to the power line.

    I have never had any issue with my Ethernet plugs with the washing machine running.
