Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

Little water pressure, is there a way to adjust this?


Answers :

Little water pressure has many variables such as worn seals in pump head or worn checkvalves and possible worn nozzle many units are damaged when they leave the trigger gun closed for longer than 4 minutes it causes pump to heat up because the water is not being let out so it circulates into the pump over and over.if you have no leak in the trigger gun hose and or pump head i would start with the seals and many units are preset to maximum pressure i would not recommend making any adjustment in pump head.

I recently replaced the water seals, V-packing & all six check valves in a CW-3504-4MGH pump on a MiTM 3504 pressure washer that had very low pressure. Usually this would fix most pressure problems on most machines, but in this case it had little to no effect. I suspect that the unloaded is the culprit in this case, but since I have had little experience in repairing unloaders (let alone adjusting them). I would appreciate feedback from anyone that has experience in this area. Thanks

When I power the Karcher 520M water pours from the handgun - there is now leak until pressure is applied. the pump does not cut out but I don't know if this is a problem with too much pressure causing the leak or too little pressure because of the leak. there does not seem to be a way to dismantle the handgun - is this correct Bill

I have a DPH3800 Dewalt pressure washer and the soaper isn't working properly. Right tip is being used but when trigger is not pressed it puts water into the bucket. When trigger is pressed it does **** some solution into the hose but very little and very slow. The valve is opened all the way. I know my former partner used bleach in the system which I read in the manual is a no no but it did work at the end of last season. Any ideas?

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

... Pressure Washers

Water pressure? I read somewhere that low pressure of the incoming water will make it so that the items on the top drawer will not be as clean. I don't see how this can be the case, as I thought that the way the washer worked was that the washer filled (at whatever speed) and then the machine itself pumped the water through the system at the appropriate pressure. Please clarify.


Mom...not true. The water fills the machine which then uses its own pump to spray the dishes with the water/detergent. If your dishes are not getting clean, use the recommended amount of detergent. Hard water will require a spot treatment like Jet ... KitchenAid KUDR01TJ Dishwasher

Do I need to call an appliance tech or should I call a plumber? Thank you.

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th

Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose.

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.

I have a kitchenaid Model KUDW03CTBL2 dishwasher. It is pumping water, but the top sprayer and the one under the top rack just have a little water coming out. Not enough to make them spin. We also noticed the water in the bottom when opened is not as much and it is cool not hot. The dishes on the top rack will not clean, and the bottom is not completely clean.

We have a Sears Ultra Wash III dishwasher, model 665.1677993, bought in October, 1995. It is not filling with enough water to get the dishes clean. I took the water valve out and looked at it and it seems okay. It doesn't look like the valve is opening all the way - just my guess. A small stream of water comes out with good pressure, but it is a small stream. I can't find any screens or filters in the water line coming in. The fill cycle lasts only about a minute. Is that adequate? Steve


There should be another letter after the p in your model number. If it's just a B then there are no parts available for that model. Typically a dishwasher will fill for 90 seconds or more. One minute or less sounds like you have a control board is ... Whirlpool GU2400XTP Built-in Dishwasher
