I have bought a diesel pressure wash but it only runs on cold. i have been told it needs a fuel pump to run on hot water. how would i fit one of these?


To have a hot water 170 deg+ or steam pres washer 220+ you for one need to have a pump and hoses/equipment rated to handle such high temperatures. Secondly you would need to add a burner to acheive that. You connect your water to the burner which the ... Pressure Washers

My Siemens dishwasher SE65M350EU/70 has an error about once a week: it washes perfect but during the last step (rinsing/drying) it sometimes stops/ continues a number of times and then indicates a low water pressure error. But never during the other steps of the washing cycle. To me this indicates that the water pressure is correct. Any idea?

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

I have a Kitchen Aid Superba KUDS24SEBS1. The inlet water pressure is good and the dishwasher fills and starts the wash cycle, however, after the initial spray of water, it seems that all of the water drains out and there is nothing left to continue the cycle and wash the dishes. It's like it's not able to fill up enough to wash the dishes.

Low pressure While I initially get high pressure, when I resume washing after having released the trigger, water pressure is low. By removing the nozzel tip and reinstalling, high water pressure is resored. What is happening?

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a


The E4 error message could be because the water pressure is too low rather than too high. Can you let me know the exact model number of your dishwasher and I should be able to tell you more.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012BElectric ... Dishwashers

I have a Siemens dishwasher serie IQ which has had water damage. There has been water pressure on the drain tube. Probably the mashine has been partly filled with drain water. Now it can start and pump out the water, but it never starts any washing program. Well it starts and the time left (e.g. 15 min on the shortest program) is displayed. But then it does not start to wash or count down. Any idea what is wrong or broken? Anyway I can repair or reset the dishwasher?

The Hom Model No. 308653045 gas-operated cold-water pressure washer has a spring-loaded control on it and I am assuming that this control regulates the output pressure of the water from the pump . . . for example, 1500 psi to 2700 psi. Is it correct to assume that this control regulates the output pressure of the pump. If the control is a pressure regulator, how does one use it and, EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, can one under-adjust or over-adjust the control to a point where THE CONTROL OR THE PUM

Hi, I have a 3 year old Nemo F&P dishwasher which turns itself on and off for about 3 seconds each on/off continually.Eventually it does get enough water to wash but never goes into the wash cycle properly, ie the water just sits at the bottom.

Do these 'portable' dishwashers 'heat' water prior to washing? i have customer complaining bout the dishes not coming clean..yet the water entering the dishwasher is cold, does not appear to heat water prior to washing.


Most dishwashers require a minimum 120 degree inlet water temp. The heating element will boost this up during the main wash cycle to aprox 140. Do not hook a dishwasher up to inlet water temps above 150. ... GE Hotpoint HDA3500N Dishwasher
