I have a Dewalt 3800 pressure washer fitted with a 67DX39G11 pump. Started unit up for the first this year, has pressure for 15 seconds then nothing. Water is flowing through okay, everything seems in order but no pressure. Unit is 2 years old but has only 15 hours of total running time. I think the pump has failed, is it normal for a pump to fail with only 15 hours on the clock?

Maytag Model No WU202 is running through all cycles but is not pumping out the water from the tub. I can hear the pump running and a gurgling sound. Could it be the micro mesh filter that is plugged?

When I power cycle from the mains (waiting 10 seconds) the pump engages again and the water level drops a bit and then stops draining. I have done this until all the water is empty an

"Sensing" Light Moved a 5 year old dishwasher that was functioning just fine to a different location. Hooked everything up and gave it a test run without any dishes in it. Fills and heats water properly, then buzzing noise heard for a ling time and then it drains the water out, with out circulating the water into the washer arms, etc. Any guesses? Could something have gotten lodged in the pump during transport?

My GE 2800 model dishwasher is not starting properly. When you start any cycle the water appears to be flowing in very slowly with no pumping action taking place. This dishwasher is approximately 15 years old and for the last several years I have suspected some problem with the electronics as certain cycles would not run properly.

Bosch SHX46A (6 years old) Selected regular cycle, pressed On and closed door. Cycle did not start normally. Pump runs, but no water is coming into the DW. I confirmed the water supply line is turned on. I opened door, turned off On/Off switch, then poured water into drain. Then turned On/Off switch on. DW began pumping water OUT of the DW. Also, it doesn't matter if the door is open or closed - if you turn the DW on, the pump will run. I suspect a problem with the electrical controls, or perha

2 years old but NEVER used it yet. Put on today and it would not run any cycles. Let in water and emptied it out but would not do a wash cycle. All this from start to finish in about 8 mins.

I have the two drawer dishwasher. It's about 10 years old. The top drawer continues to work OK but for the last three attempts when I run the bottom drawer water gets out into the drip pan below and gives the F1 signal. I can dry the drip pan out and clear the F1 signal so the top drawer works. But running the bottom drawer causes water to leak again with the resultant F1 signal. There is very little water in the bottom drawer (just a little in the filter bowl) so I think the pump is pumping

I have a Bosch integrated dishwater that is just over 2 years old. It has suddenly stopped working and the tray at the bottom is not emptying, although you can still hear a buzzing sound. The cycle does not go beyond this point. I have emptied the tray of water and the dishwasher will start again, and pump water in, but it then stops, as though it is not able to pump water out. Does anyone know what this is? Could it be the pump? A blockage?

Hi ..I have an Excell gas pressure washer model no. Exwgv2121-3 with Faip 2100 psi 2 gpm vertical shaft pump..the problem is that there is water leaking from every weep hole at the bottom of the pump when running. Oddly enough,the pump still puts out significant pressure but less than it should due to the leaking water. What is the most likely cause of this?..is it the high pressure water seal(s)? If so,how do I repair it?

It leaks down on to the hose connecting to the water inlet valve on the right hand side of the unit when looking at the door of the unit.

My Professional series dishwasher does not work properly. It is only 1.5 years old and glasses on top rack get sprayed with fine layer of particles every time I use it. Other items, top and bottom, are often not clean as well, but glasses are the hardest to re-clean.

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

How can I shut off the water supply to the dishwasher? It fills slowly with water from the top (while not running), and then water spills out over the kitchen floor. By pressing the 'Drain' button, the water will drain out, but I have to get to it before it floods. It takes about 4 hours for it to get to the overflow stage. It is a Jennair model, about 9 years old. We have a lot of limescale, it is probably time to replace it, but for the moment my main concern is to stop the leak. Thank you for
