... Pressure Washers

When I plugged my pressure washer in the motor switch was on and the unit started to run without water hooked up. Before I could get to the unit to shut it off it stopped running and will not run now.


Didn't the instructions say to make sure water was hooked up before starting? This is the reason for the warning. ... Coleman Powermate DuraBuilt 1400 PSI Pressure Washer

It sounds as if you might have an air lock/air bubble in your pump circuit. If you've not already done so, try holding the trigger on your high pressure nozzle for several minutes with the engine OFF. (just your water pressure forcing water through t ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I have a Karcher K3.48M electric pressure washer which used to shut off when you weren't using the cleaning wand. This no longer happens and there is alot of water running out of the bottom of the unit. (This didn't used ot be the case) I expect a leak somewhere inside the unit, but I'm wondering even more if there is a pressure switch which has failed that cased the leak. In other words, if I find and repair the leak and there is a failed pressure switch, it will likely only break again. I can'

Pressure Washer I have a Porter Cable pressure model no.PCH2401.It works fine for 5 minutes,then I can hear the motor loading down and then it stalls out. I tried to start it and it was very hard to pull on. disconnected the water supply and if was very easy to pull and started right up. I noticed the pump was very hot.This unit has a thermal relief valve on it,shouldn't it have released when it gets to a certain temperature .I was thinking maybe this is why it might be shutting the motor


Any leaks from connection at pump to gun and wand assembly if so the valve is detecting leakage and open up again without u squeezing trigger it builds up in the head.if your trigger gun is leaking internally then you will need to replace the gun thi ... Pressure Washers

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers

My Karcher K3.48M pressure washer remains in the low pressure mode even when I return the pressure nozzle to the high pressure position. How can this be corrected. The pump seems to build up the pressure because when I release the handle the pump motor stops. This is a fairly new pump which was purchased in the latter part of last year(2010). Could this have been caused by the detergent I have been using which is an automotive shampoo? Please help I love this washer and for the times that I u

I have a karcher K3.98 pressure washer. The unit surges when I put the wand on and then it stops working.

Dishwasher fills with hot water. Float OK - water feed stops when full. Motor humms but no water spray (in all opperating modes). Cancel selection (with cancel button) and close the door. The water drains then the unit shuts off. Water feed OK. Drain Cycle OK. Looks like spray pump hung but do not know. Cannot find a reset button (as with disposal) or way to free hung pump motor. I did see glass pieces in the drain. Possibly a small piece hanging the motor.


If you found broken glass inside the machine some has likely migrated to the pump. about the only way to fix that issue is to remove the pump and either replace it or disassemble it and clean it out. ... KitchenAid 24 in. KUDP01FL Built-in Dishwasher

When I use my Karcher pressure washer it works perfectly until I release the trigger. Instead of remaining silent until I pull the trigger again the motor intermittently, at approx 2/3 second intervals, starts and stops. Could you please advise what is causing this to happen please.


What it is doing is keeping the pressure up in the hose. It is completely normal for it to do that. they all do it. Listen to others in use and it will do the same thing. Nothing to worry about. ... Karcher Pressure Washers
