Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

PRESSURE WASHER RUNNING BUT NO WATER COMES OUT WHEN YOU PULL THE TRIGGER??? IT WORKED FINE WHEN I FIRST STARTED IT. I THEN SHUT IT OFF TO MOVE IT. WHEN I STARTED IT BACK UP, IT STOPPED WORKING.


Answers :

The water admittance valve is stuck. The spring loaded valve lets more water into the pump when the pressure drops when you trigger the wand. Take the valve apart, clean the bore with crocus cloth on a dowel rod. Replace the O Rings and lube with plumber's grease and reassemble. Good as new! The O rings get dry, deposits build up in the bore, and the spool valve sticks at the high pressure end so no further water comes in to be pumped. Half hour job, get an O Ring kit to refurbish.

Hello expert, We are having a new kitchen floor laid and the contractor moved the Whirlpool dishwasher out to lay the floor under. Since it was replaced into it's normal under the counter spot, green "clean" light flashing in succession with a brief stop then starts again. Not really bothered as long as it worked, but of course it doesn't work - What do you suggest?? P.S.

Hi . I have a Zanussi DE6965 which has started displaying the error message AL6 every now and then. When it stops and shows this the water has not pumped out. If you turn it off, leave for half an hour or so and turn back on it sometimes works fine to the end. Sometimes it stops again. Eventually after several stop starts it works through. Any advice what could be causing this? Thanks.

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model 665.172824000. We think it stopped part way throught the dry cycle. The green "Clean" light has been flashing since in 7 flash cycles non stop.

I tried to start a new wash cycle but when I close the door and push the start button it just give 3 quick red flashes and then nothing but the green clean light flashing again.

My Kenmore Dishwasher 665.16359301 quit working. I flipped off the breaker then back on again. The cancel light comes on and it sounds like its going to drain but theres no water in it. After about 20 seconds it stops and the normal wash cycle light starts blinking. Thats it. I did the reset procedure and it started to work then went back to the normal wash light blinking.

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad


This could be the 'fill switch', which is the level sensor. Could be a plastic tube that exerts air pressure into the tube as it fills, make sure it's clear and open. The dishwasher has a sensor that monitors the door being closed too. Some use a hig ... Dishwashers

My Dishwasher starts, then stops after 30secs and won't continue draining. Everytime I turn it back on it comes up on the steam cycle and won't go to any other cycle, drains for 30secs and stops again. Power light is flashing. Have tried holding power button down for 10secs with no effect. Filter is clean, pipes are straight-no kinks. How do I get it to start working again? It is a whirlpool dishwasher, ADP5550.

My Frigidaire model GLD2155RDC1, installed in 2007, stopped working after we lost power. When we flipped the circut breaker back on the lights for Air Dry and High Temp Wash started blinking, but none of the other buttons work and when we open the door these lights stop flashing and there is no power for our machine. We tried tripping the breaker a few more times and it kept doing the same thing.

The Dishwasher PLD2850RDC2 will not start. The CL flashes, the type of cycle pressed on the key pad does respond, but nothing happens when START is pressed. Steps taken: -Door is clicked shut -Power breaker has been turned off and back on -All dishwasher moving parts have been moved by hand to ensure no obstructions are in the way. Best guess is the key pad is just non responsive. I hope there is an easy solution. Thank you.

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

On my whirlpool ADP962 dishwasher the start light is flashing but nothing is working. I can change the programme type (ie rinse, wash etc) but the programme will not start. I can't select either half load or a time delay. By holding the start button it will start the pump but when this stops it goes back to a flashing start light. The programme progress lights are not lit. What is this telling me and how can I reset it?

Hello all, We have an Ikea Whirlpool DWF 416 that is a couple of years old and has never caused any problems. From today the door has stopped shutting properly. The electronics and internal mechanisms seem to be working fine, since when you turn it on the cycle starts - but only if you hold the door shut. Has maybe a catch gone? Any ideas for fixing a door-shutting problem like this? Thanks in advance! Dave


The catch is no longer working. Contact IKEA for the replacement part. I'm sure it's available through EBAY or something, but probably not guaranteed or as reliable. ... Dishwashers

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.

Dishwasher Repair Dishwasher is a Stoves/Newhome DW616 Rotating spray arms do not always operate. This is an intermittent problem - will sometimes work normally for a few days then arms will not move at all with no water coming from them. Machine appears to go through its normal cycle. Some times cycle starts normaly and spray arms stop working part way through.

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.
