Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

Answers :

This may be as simple as still having air in the system.  Connect the machine to the water supply (but not the electric) then squeeze the trigger and allow water to flow for at least 60 seconds.  During that process, hold the nozzle outlet under the surface of water in a bucket so you can see when air stops coming out.  Keep going until you're sure there's no more air in the system.  Then switch it on.  If it still does not come up to pressure you'd probably be wise to abandon it.

My dishwasher will not start. If you unplug it and plug it back in it says 1H, no matter what button you press it then says 2H and if you press another button it will say 3H until it runs through to 9H then will display --. It will continue to do this until you leave it alone and walk away. Then after a few moments it will clear itself out and the 'Normal' light under cycles will continue to blink.

Hello, my Siemens integrated dishwasher no: SE64M359GB stopped working mid-cycle with 35mins remaining. It is displaying the red tap emblem. Usually the dishwasher starts when the dishwasher door is closed fully (having pressed the power button). However, it is making a noise as soon as the power button is pressed.

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to complete including the drying cycle. After 89 minutes it was still in the wash cycle so I cancelled it to preserve sanity. In the instruction manual it states that the water temperature must be above 120°F. Our building's water heating unit is set at 110°F. Why there is a lower temperature


It should still work pretty well but you probably can't use the high temp wash because it will take too long for the dishwasher to heat up the water enough to satisfy the high temp washer thermostat. If the thermostat's calibrated closing temperature ... Frigidaire Dishwashers
