I have a GE potscrubber Dishwasher Model # GSD3630ZZ3WW it has been leaking from the bottom for about a week. I took the bottom off tonight and ran the dishwasher so that I could see where it is leaking from.

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine. I have felt underneath and it appears that the water is coming from the second opening from the rear. Is there a pressure relief valve there. I have a manual but cannot find any descriptors for underneath the motor.

Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure washer leaks when wand trigger is actuated and has very low pressure/flow output. After releasing trigger the pressure cycles on - off at approx 1 second interval. I suspect that the plasstic oulet tube is leaking causing low pressure leak out of bottom when trigger is actuated and causes pressure switch to cycle when the trigger is released. Any Help? This pressure washer is approx 18 months old!

The wash pump is leaking, not at the larger joining o-ring seal, but through the vents in the bottom of the motor just past the blade/rotor. Is there a small o-ring inside that is on the shaft that may be leaking? Is there a schematic breakdown of this motor somewhere? I already ordered a new one, and will "play" with the old one to see if I can fix it, just looking for some direction.


The shaft seal has failed. Often the top ball bearing becomes noisy after having the water leak through it. The seal is probably a lip seal rather than an O ring. ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD3465REC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore Dishwasher Model #110703412 leaks, likely around the motor shaft. Are there motor shafts seals and how are they replaced? Does the motor assembly remove through the tub or does it require being removed from the bottom? Do you have to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet to do this job?

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'
