Pressure Washer I have a Porter Cable pressure model no.PCH2401.It works fine for 5 minutes,then I can hear the motor loading down and then it stalls out. I tried to start it and it was very hard to pull on. disconnected the water supply and if was very easy to pull and started right up. I noticed the pump was very hot.This unit has a thermal relief valve on it,shouldn't it have released when it gets to a certain temperature .I was thinking maybe this is why it might be shutting the motor


Any leaks from connection at pump to gun and wand assembly if so the valve is detecting leakage and open up again without u squeezing trigger it builds up in the head.if your trigger gun is leaking internally then you will need to replace the gun thi ... Pressure Washers

The engine starts cold after 2 or three pulls, runs ok initially, but seems to have slightly less power. After a few minutes I can turn off the choke. When teh engine warms up and runs for about 15 minutes, there is a definite power decrease and the motor sounds like it will stall. If I paly with the choke, it does not stall, but has little power to pump water. If the engine does stall or it is turned off, it will not restart until it cools down.


I would first try draining the carb bowl, if you look at where the choke lever is and look below that you should see a clear red tube with a flat head screw below that, if you just turn the screw out the carb will drain. If you still have an issue yo ... Karcher G3025OH Pressure Washer

My powerwasher(2500psi) with a B&S QUANTUM 120000 gas motor will stall when hot, pressure drops significantly, and is hard to restart. When it does re-start, it stalls again in 2 minutes. This behavior started recently after working fine for 2 days. I changed the oil-no difference.


I assume you did plug and filter change. Check the plug wire for fire when hot or problem occurs; it should be pretty visible- don't shoch yourself. Check that fuel is reaching carb, check tank for debris. You may need to have valve adjusted. G ... Pressure Washers

Asko 1555 Dishwasher will not drain. Bottom of kick panel pan will fill with water triping the float switch?, leaving an error code. Is it safe to assume that the out pump needs replacing. I had the kick panel off and smacked the motor housing a few times and it ran for a few loads, but is now again stopped working.


It might be the pump, or it might be an obstruction elsewhere. If you have an air gap on your sink/counter top, open it and check for debris. If it is clear, unscrew the main filter basket. There is a black plug on the left side of the bottom well ... Dishwashers

After 3 years it just started making a loud noise, I am no expert but it sounds like a fan in a motor. I have only heard it today, but I am betting it will still happen next load too. I didn't change any of the settings, have been running the same way forever. When I did hear this noise I started pushing buttons to see if I could get it to stop, no good, no change. The cycle has completed and everything looks ok, waiting on the dishes to dry. Drainage has never been a problem for me either.


I would say this is a build up of lime.try changing your tablets and checking your salt levels.there is no fan .try what i say and see what happens.have you found a glass broken it could be as simple as that but i dont think its serious.adrian,,,, ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

My LG Dishwaser LDS4821 all of a sudden has been making a very load noise after a few minutes. This has been happening the last 3 times I have ran it. (also ran it empty, noise is still there.) Is this a problem with the motor? I don't hear it on the rinse cycle. This is less than 2 years old.


First, remove the sump cover in the bottom of the tub to check if any object (like a part of a broken glass or plate) is being knocked around by the impeller or hard food cutter blade. (Note: The screw on the end of the motor shaft has a left hand ... LG LDS4821 24 in. Built-in Dishwasher

Leaking dishwasher My GE dishwasher leaks when running a load of dishes. The leak seems to be coming from about the middle of the tub about halfway back. I can't see exactly where it's coming from, but it appears to be dripping right behind the motor. Could it be a poor connection? I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks, Bob Engle I do not seem to be able to find the model number


Probably a leak at the motor seal where it enters the tub. Best to remove the motor if you can and inspect the seal. ... Dishwashers
