My Karcher 411A seems to have lost pressure. Behaviour is this, when you press the water release on the spray gun you get 100% pressure for like 10 seconds and then it seems to dwindle down to 30-40% of its total pressure. When the pressure cuts down I can hear more noise coming from the gun sprayer aswell. So not sure if the problem is in the gun or the main pump unit ?

I have a McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?

... Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washers

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti

I've had a Miele G892 SCU PLUS dishwasher for a long time. Today a problem started that results in a flooded floor. Water keeps flowing into the dishwasher - even when the unit is turned off. It seeps in very slowly, but within15 minutes there is enough to overflow & flood the floor. My guess is that there must be some kind of sensor that isn't working, or the coresponding mechanical switch that shuts off the water is worn or slightly stuck open a bit? Anything I can do / check, short of the re
