My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th


I don't believe you have a screen at any water feed and doubt that would be the problem. Once the washer fills the pressure to the cleaning arms is provided by the pump itself. I have this issue every couple of months due to hard water and the calci ... Dishwashers

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!

Hi. I have a Briggs & Stratton 2800PSI gas pressure washer. I can get it to start, but after about 5 min, then it quits. I have cleaned the carb, change oil, changed plug, new gas, cleaned/checked air filter. Nothing will keep it running. Wondering if it may be not enough water pressure, but would that cause it to stop like that? When it runs, it does a good job, but it stops just as you get going. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!


If it wont start, check for spark.how you do that,ok take the spark plug wire out put it close to the sparkplug(use some gloves or something to insulate your self from get electric shot from the spark) find some one who pull the start rope, if you do ...

My Prima LPR660 dishwasher does not clean properly. It appears to have water in the salt container. We cant seem to unscrew the salt container to see if it is blocked. Everything else is clean and works, we just get a scale of salt on the dishes. Any tips gratefully received! Thanks Emilie

I am trying to clean my block paving using my pressure washer Karcher 3.99, which I used successfully last summer, however, it is not cleaning well. I have used the high power nozzle but the power seems inefficient to get the dirt out of the paving. Please can you advvise what you think the problem may be. Many thanks. Sue Thompson


Hello Sue, you don't say where in the world you live, but if you are attempting to clean dirt and algae off pavers, you need to add a solution to the water jet via the inbuilt attachment. Mix a fairly mild solution of bleach and detergent, pus a dash ... Karcher Pressure Washers

My Karcher K2.36 stopped working. I had been cleaning the pathways and with no warning, no peculiar noises, etc the unit motor stopped working. The power was connected, the water was still coming from the wand albeit at low pressure. Thanks.

I have a Samsung dishwasher and a code comes up that says that there is a low-level water function problem. The solution in the manual says to run it empty to clean it. I suspect that the water level chamber may have food deposits in it causing the low-level sensor to misfunction. Where is the water level chamber and how do I clean it?

Water pressure? I read somewhere that low pressure of the incoming water will make it so that the items on the top drawer will not be as clean. I don't see how this can be the case, as I thought that the way the washer worked was that the washer filled (at whatever speed) and then the machine itself pumped the water through the system at the appropriate pressure. Please clarify.


Mom...not true. The water fills the machine which then uses its own pump to spray the dishes with the water/detergent. If your dishes are not getting clean, use the recommended amount of detergent. Hard water will require a spot treatment like Jet ... KitchenAid KUDR01TJ Dishwasher

Appliance had been working fine now all of a sudden no water is running in the dishwasher.The machine appears to run through all of its cycles but without water. The water pressure in the ajoining sink appears a little low though the water pressure in the rest of my home is fine. I see no water leakage anywhere. Do I need to call an appliance tech or should I call a plumber? Thank you.

I have error E:15 with a flashing water tap sign - I've tried the following: a) Clean filter at the bottom - now flushes out with b) remove power - return power c) remove and clean fiter for incoming water at a sort of valve Nothing! when I attach power it continues to flush out (even without water) if I put water in it evacuates without problems. The tap does supply water I've check and with more than sufficent flow and pressure! ...Help .....Thanks Gary


Hello Gary,\015\012\015\012You didn't specify the brand or model number of the dishwasher, but I suspect it's a Bosch, in which case the E:15 error with the flashing tap sign and the drain pump running continuously means the anti-flood pr ... Dishwashers

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

My Whirlpool Gold Series 980 dishwater no longer fills up with enough water to drive the washing arms, so the dishes do not come out clean. I cleaned the filter on the water intake valve (which was really clogged) and it still did the same thing. Replaced the inlet valve and still no change. The water does not reach the level of the overfill float switch, so that’s not it. Its been working fine for 4-5 years, what else could it be? Thank you.

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump

Our 16 year old dishwasher takes way longer to finish cycles, has become very loud and now no longer cleans the dishes - especially the top rack and the silverware. We have hard water and I have run it with vinegar in a bowl 3 times and have been cleaning all the deposits I can today. It doesn't seem to be draining out all the gunk. Water flow seems ok, the arms have nothing blocking them. Any instructions for me to follow to clean out the mechanisms? Or has it run its lifespan... Thanks!


Parts are no longer available for your dishwasher. Typically - manufactures end support after 10 years.Your hard water deposits will never come all the way out. They will be "clean" for a month or so until another calcium chunk breaks free and ... Dishwashers

My karcher hds 745 is running but just won't build up pressure, this occurred after a really cold few weeks this winter and I hadn't put anti-freeze through the machine to winterize it. There's no water coming from the bottom of the machine when it's running as i've read that if the pump seals are faulty water will escape from the pump etc. The machine motor runs ok but no pressure is acheived on the gauge whatsoever. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Paul.

Bosch E15, I see from your site is a water pressure problem. (thanks) I think we have solved that, it old house water pressure gets low, needed resetting. But now how do I clear the error so I can try it? Sounds like there is air in the system. It is a French Bosch machine, the robinet ferme is blinking, sel & liquid rincage are lit, auto 45-65 is blinking. We opened it while it was running, and this all happened from that.

On an AEG Favorit 64570 VI we have an error 20. Manual indicates a drainage problem, however when we pour in water, it gets pumped out without a problem. No obstructing in the exhaust tube. Next we checked the pressure sensor, by taking it out and blowing into it. It clicked as pressure was applied to it, so the inner switch worked. Everything is clean, but still we get an error 20. What does seem strange is that the appliance does not take in water. Any suggestions are welcome.

Whirlpool Dishwasher: Dishes not clean. Don't think water is getting through to the jets. The water input component keeps popping out of the base of the machine. Hard to know really as everything stops when you open the door. Have cleared everything that is accessible.

I coated everything with silicine grease and reassembled, seating the brass piston? as deep as it would go. I had to press the trigger in order to get the mo
