Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

I have gas in the oil fill and oil coming out of the exhaust of my Ridgid pressure washer. I lent it to my father who isnt mechanical at all so anything could have happened while he was using it. He has since passed away so he cant tell me if he did anything wrong to it. Its a Ridgid with a Subaru SP170 OHC Engine. Any help would be appreciated. Scot


Answers :

Check to see if the oil is overfilled first.

If the oil is at a normal level, the engine was probably overheated or ran low on oil.

It is also possible that the machine was tipped over and oil ran into the cylinder.

Our dishwasher seems to be stuck in drain mode. My daughter put the wrong kind of soap in it. She accidently put Regular dish washing soap in rather than machine dish washing soap. We've got all the suds out. Seems to drain water just fine. However we cant seem to get it to add water. Does the soap have anything to do with it? Anything I can do from my end? Please Advise. Thanks

I got the pressure washer started - lots of smoke etc after not having used 3 years. I then poured in wrong oil to top it off - my brother's chain saw bar oil. DARN. After 3-4 minutes it started rattling and stopped. Can't pull the chord to get started. Did it seize the engine? I have drained all oil. Can I try using a cleaner, light weight oil to try to unlock it?

I bought a troybuilt pressure washer used and i changed the motor oil and ran it maybe 5 minutes. later i checked the oil level again and it shot out the cap and i noticed the pump oil level is also almost to the top of sight glass. Does anyone know whats wrong?

I have a Dishlex Global 300 dishwasher that stopped working mid-cycle. I had to sponge out all the water. Now none of the buttons do anything and none of the lights come on. When I turn it on at the power outlet it gives a single beep, but I cant get it to do anything else. I've opened it up and there is no water or dampness anywhere inside. Any ideas?

Won start Was using the pressure washer 1st time this year and started on the second pull. Ran out of gas shut-off also noticed it needed oil.

This time the resistant was there on the pull but still would not start; no attempt even to turn over.

I ran my pressure washer today in an effort to run some "stabilized" gas through it for the winter. For some reason the pump began to push oil out the top relief hole. If thats not clear, it's a feature that looks like a priming pump but is rigid. By the way, the oil appeared a bit nourish gray. Not sure if that means anything. Any ideas?


It looks as if moisture/water has contaminated the oil. Check the level of oil from the glass window. It must be high. Drain out the oil & check if water is present, if so then replace the entire oil. ... Dewalt DPD3100 Gas Pressure Washer
