Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

I left my craftsman pressure washer (the big one) running while i went for detergent. The pressure hose blew off and now the threads are stripped. can u help me?

\015 The two brass connections now are stripped and will not stay connected. I have had much trouble with this machine. its been in the shop more than not. i took it to a repair place locally yesterday again and i was told they cant help me anymore. haha.. i could have bought three for what ive spent on it. but this one seems simple to me if i just had the right push. ive considered splicing the hose to the machine. but that doesnt make a lot of sence since i cant get to the end of the end at the machine. \012 It only took me a few minutes to go for the detergent. i left the water running, but the trigger was not pulled. i figure that ws the problem.\015

Answers :

You have more problems then just a stiped thread. the machine shouldnt be producing that sort of pressure if you dont have the trigger pulled.sounds to me like the pressure switch is faulty

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 have a Generac pressure washer, model #01450-0, with a Honda 5hp motor. The motor runs fine, but the pressure hose pulsates as if the pump is intermittently making pressure, and the pressure out of the sprayer is about half of what it should be.

There are two hoses coming from my Bosch SHE45M06UC dishwasher. One is obviously the drain coming from the back of the unit, and the other is attached to the side looped and not connected to anything. I went online to the Bosch website for a installation manual and it describes this hose as a air venting hose. Does the end attach anywhere or does it just hang loose on the unit. My husband detached it from its original position and thought it was part of the water line. HELP!

Hello. my dishwasher leaves gunk on the inside of glasses that were wiped clean before washing.
