Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO A CRAFTSMAN GAS POWERED 2500 PSI PRESSURE WASHER IF SOMEONE RUNS DIESEL THROUGH IT AS A DETERGENT OR DE-GREASER? WILL THIS RUIN THE SEALS IN THE PUMP? OR CAN THIS PROBLEM BE REVERSED WITH A FULL TAKE APART AND CLEAN UP OF ALL PARTS?


Answers :

If you want to run a very small amount through the engine to help clean carbon deposits I would say that was fine as long as you only used 1-2 ounces to the gallon. But if you want to run diesel through the pump itself I would not recommend this.
\012 I would disassemble pump and thourghly clean all parts being especially careful to clean and polish all vanes on the impeller and bearing surfaces. Inspect and clean seals and replace if needed.Clean and inspect any o-rings and when you reassemble lightly coat all bearing and sealing surfaces with a good grade of silicon grease. Thank you.

During circulation, top drawer seems to leak water through the rubber seal, located on the lid assembly. What would commonly cause this problem. Would it be the actuator, yoke, seal, etc... Please answer only if you've seen enough of this problem, with this model, in particular. Will provide monetary full rating if you can provide both, what part and why... and of course, if it resolves the problem :)


Lid seal not sitting properly can be due to several reasons as you have eluded to.\015\012\015\012The simplest is that the actuator is not getting any power. But if you hear the actuator operate at Start then this is not a problem. Howeve ... Fisher and Paykel 23 in. DD-603 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishlex DX450 has been working OK for years - suddenly not washing - white deposits and cutlery looks greasy - but machine clean and all filters and arms clear of debris. Have removed pumps and hoses - all clean - no obvious problems. Seems to complete a full cycle - but the problem is consistent every wash - independent of the dishes. Welcome any insights - thank you, Richard

EDW5500DSS wont completely drain water Okay so now that my dishwasher runs, when it finishes a cycle it has a nice puddle of water at the bottom that never drains completely out. I am assuming its a relay or something because I looked for a floating switch (did not find), I can hear a pump sound as if it wants to pump the remaining water out, but, it doesn't. I really want to solve this problem soon so I can order the new door seal and needed part together. Checked the line out and of course i

I'm having problems with the drain pump constantly running. I understand so far that it'll be the anti-flood device that is causing this. I've taken the dishwasher out and tipped it backwards to drain as much water out as possible but nothing comes out from anywhere ! It appears to be a sealed unit so how do I get to the appropriate part and fix it ? Cheers !

When I switch my karcher k4.97 washer on it just sits and pulsates(on off on off etc.)When I squeeze the trigger it runs perfect,but emits a very low pressure.Then when I release the trigger it reverts back to pulsating. I have tried the popular fixes like cleaning lances,filters,making sure its not airlocked etc.I have even fitted new parts(seals to the pump etc).There are no leaks what so ever.

Our GE model GSD4320Z00B is having a problem with the drain system. I've run the unit in the test mode and it does pump the dishwasher down. The problem is the unit does NOT pump down during a normal wash cycle. The fact that the unit works in test tells me it is not the pump. I've checked all the hoses and drain paths and there are no obstructions, again verified by the fact it works in test mode. Any test that can be used to determine the problem besides replacing parts one by one?

Our Asko D1716 dishwasher functions to fill and empty but the pump which causes the sprayers to rotate and distribute the water does not function. The local appliance repairman diagnosed the problem as a bad pump (he called it a motor). Since the pump is a $400 part plus labor, is it possible that the problem is something else like a bad motor capacitor or relay? When the cycle calls for the pump to come on, there is no sound except for a very soft hum.

My LG dishwasher upper rack has stopped cleaning. The uppermost arm is seemingly getting no water at all and the arm on the underside of the upper rack is getting some water, but not enough to turn it. I have already disassembled and cleaned all the way down to the diverter assembly and it has not fixed the problem. I think this is a problem with a the (?) diverter pump or perhaps a sensor that sends water to the upper arms. I am trying to figure out how to further diagnose the problems. The

Recently our GU1100XTLQ1 started having a problem. It barely cleans the bottom rack, and barely gets top rack wet. The soap stays stuck in the dispenser. I can't see inside as it runs, but my guess is that not enough water is being shot out of the various spinning arms. From looking at diagrams it would appear that this dishwasher uses a pump to circulate water from the bottom of the cavity through the spinning arms. Is my problem a dying pump?
