Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

I have a reconditioned Husky 3000PSI with Honda GCV190. We used it for a couple of hours. Had to put gas in it once and it started up no problem. However when we undid the water hose and moved it to back yard we could not get it to start again. Ckd oil dip stick and was fine. Any thoughts?

I have a Kitchen Aid KUDS03CTSS3 dishwasher. Dirty water is staying at the bottom and nothing comes out the drain hose during the entire cycle. The drain hose is looped above the kitchen P-trap, although for a time it wasn't. I use a wet vac to get the water out but there is still water below the fine filter. I thought if I could get the fine filter off, I could clean out the bottom as I think that it's full of crud down there that may be blocking things. I can't figure out how to get the l

DuraBuilt 1404. Motor kicks in for two seconds, then quits. High pressure hose blew off and I could barely get it threaded back on. Quick coupler broke so I hooked garden hose up direct. Is lack of quick coupler maybe the problem? Could I be missing a part on high pressure hose that makes it so difficult to thread onto male fitting? Thanks! Bob

I turned on the dishwasher tonight and noticed nothing was happening, but I was getting a clicking sound. I moved the dial back to off and started over. Some water went in, but then nothing happened again. I clicked forward one click at a time. Sometimes water came in. THEN WATER STARTED LEAKING OUT. I clicked back to off. After water stopped leaking, I opened the door. There is still water in the bottom. What do I do???


Hi \015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. As the water is not draining and clicking is\015\012coming from the bottom so the issue seems to be with the drain pump solenoid. Usually, these issues are related\015\012to ... Kenmore Dishwashers

The dishwasher does not complete a cycle. It starts the cycle just fine but then it stops after one minute. It seems like it gets stuck and won't move to the next step. I do hear a slight clicking noise similar to a clock ticking, like its trying to move on, but then it stops. It clicks three times. When I open the door the "fine china" light is on even though I set it on "normal". Is there a "re-set" button?

Dishwasher has been stored. Was working fine-ish for first half dozen washes. Now not starting wash. From troubleshooting in manual I'm holding down first two buttons and it's saying "End", but keeps moving back to SOAK function (17 mins) and not doing anything. Display shows whole soak cycle to run, but on holding down start button it makes no difference - doesn't beep to acknowledge and start cycle.

I have a Troybuilt pressure washer which has a Honda GC160 engine. The engine starts easily but quits after about a minute. One pull and it re-starts, then quits in a minute....... This goes on for as long as I want to keep re-starting it. Anyone know what it might be? I pulled the carb off and blew out all of the various ports I could find. I did not remove the carb adjustment screws as I have not had any luck getting them back in place during previous problems with other gas engines.

My dishwasher was moved for kitchen rennovations. When hooked back up again it would not fill up. It will run through a cycle but no water enters. If I squeeze the rubber hose that leads from the electronic valve to the tub it gets hot indicating that I am forcing hot water through the line. If I pour water into the tub it will wash the dishes but at the final 6 minute point it will go no further, I assume because it is not getting rinse water.

Hi I went away on holiday and my dishwasher AEG 50800 was in perfect order. When I came back after three weeks it does not work. It was not in use while I was away so I don't get how come it is not working now .It does start up but its like the pump is just not kicking in. Ihear water running but the blades dont move and nothing seems to get washed, any ideas. Or is a new expensive pump my only option? My Husband seems to think a seal might have gone. Can a seal go while not in use? Thanks
