The Hom Model No. 308653045 gas-operated cold-water pressure washer has a spring-loaded control on it and I am assuming that this control regulates the output pressure of the water from the pump . . . for example, 1500 psi to 2700 psi. Is it correct to assume that this control regulates the output pressure of the pump. If the control is a pressure regulator, how does one use it and, EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, can one under-adjust or over-adjust the control to a point where THE CONTROL OR THE PUM

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

Smeg DWF612WH dishwasher has developed a leak. Water comes out of the rectangular hole on the side of the water softner used to mount what looks like a level or pressure switch. A few seconds after the fill valve opens water leaks out, not a lot just a small trickle. After the washer has filled and goes ito its cycle, it does not leak again. Over the past weeks the problem has got progressively worse.

Honda GVC 160 lost pressure - noticed small black valve (back - rear) after pressure builds up , short spray then nothing - hot water comes shooting out the black valve - did something pop off?


The small black valve is called a thermal relief valve. If it is open you will have no pressure. If the water is getting hot enough to pop that valve, there might be internal problems with the pump. ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

Frigidaire built in dishwasher model PLD2855RFC1. Have to wash dishes pretty much spotless prior to using dishwaser.

Northstar Hot Water Pressure Washer (model #157322) While using the pressure washer the safety relief valve activated venting steam and hot water from it... I immediately shut it down and let it cool down. After it was cool, I turned on the water supply again and the relief valve was still spewing water from it. My neighbor said it was probably the "unloader" valve was stuck or damaged. I called around my area and it seems as though no one services my pressure washer.. Is there a manu

I have a Karcher 550M pressure washer and was using today when all of a sudden the water started to pour through the handle hence lost the pressure of the water. Is this a rubber washer issue or the gun needs replacing or simpler than that. To be honest although I have had the washer for about 3/4 years now It is hardly used. Also can I fix it and where would I purchase the allen key to replace. Thanks Brian

The top drawer of my fisher paykel dishwasher stops during the cycle and shows an icon of a tap with a line threw it (assume that means no or low water pressure). the bottom works fine so I assume water pressure is not the issue; is there a sensor that could be bad? Also, I did switch the controllers between drawers (good instructions on the fisherpaykelparts.net website) but the problem stayed with the drawer, ruling out the controller.


Did it fill with water? could be 1 of your water valves is faulty, or the little filter for the inlet water is blocked. please reply 4 more help. i"m sure i can fix this problem for you. good luck. ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603SS Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Karcher K3.48M electric pressure washer which used to shut off when you weren't using the cleaning wand. This no longer happens and there is alot of water running out of the bottom of the unit. (This didn't used ot be the case) I expect a leak somewhere inside the unit, but I'm wondering even more if there is a pressure switch which has failed that cased the leak. In other words, if I find and repair the leak and there is a failed pressure switch, it will likely only break again. I can'

I have the Coleman powermate 2400 PSI pressure washer and on initial start it sprays and has great pressure. But once I release the spray handle it will not spray again, not even one drop of water. I have verified water pressure, bought 3/4 hose, and also changed the spray handle with no help. Pressure washer was bought new at Lowes, but did not use for first three years of ownership, should have tested it. Thanks for any help on this. Ted Miller

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a

We have a Sears Ultra Wash III dishwasher, model 665.1677993, bought in October, 1995. It is not filling with enough water to get the dishes clean. I took the water valve out and looked at it and it seems okay. It doesn't look like the valve is opening all the way - just my guess. A small stream of water comes out with good pressure, but it is a small stream. I can't find any screens or filters in the water line coming in. The fill cycle lasts only about a minute. Is that adequate? Steve


There should be another letter after the p in your model number. If it's just a B then there are no parts available for that model. Typically a dishwasher will fill for 90 seconds or more. One minute or less sounds like you have a control board is ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
