I have a McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?

I have a sears pressure washer, model 580752300. The pump on the underside vibrated lose and broke a couple screws. It came off and the oil drained out. I replaced the screws and it's ready to go except I can't find out how much replacement oil to put back in. Sears has larger containers but won't tell you how much oil to put in. However, there's a pricey pre-measured container they want to make you buy. Anybody know how much oil goes in that pump?

Plastic Pieces We purchased our ASKO 1385 dishwasher 7-8 years ago. Over the years, I have found "small square, thin, pieces of gray plastic" inside. Where are these coming from? Also, we have replaced the drain pump 2 years ago and looks like we'll be replaced the main pump within the next few days as no water is going through. We are looking at paying big $$$ for that pump. Almost half as much as purchasing a new dishwasher. Is this a common problem?

Yes, I have the same problem and it is the upper bearing rack, not the pump impeller. The new bearing kit is $30.00 (another is available for $123.00-the same!!). ... Asko 1385 Dishwasher

I have two questions and would greatly appreciate some help: - What oil to use in the pressure pump of a Ryobi Pressure Washer RY80030? - How much to put in? The pump model is MTP092150 from FAIP. As per the manufacturer, the oil is not to be changed or topped up by the end-user, I know, I know, but brought to a service center instead - I certainly don't want to do that, and there is none close to my place anyway. The reason I need this is that I had to take the pump apart and a

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

Upper & bottom arms are not turning even though the motor seems OK, pump for draining seems OK too. rcently I changed the pump kit plus some gasket and seals. My Maytag is about 14 yold and was very good for me untill I changed the parts. Could it be a weak motor pump. The water splashes very much in the machine but no arm turning!? Help me thank you Ben

Hi Ben, had the motor impellor shattered in the old pump ie-chunks broken off ? if so there is every possibility that these pieces have lodged in the wash delivery pipework at an elbow or indeed at the arm boss itself -i would try to check as much of ... Dishwashers

Noisy pump This is supposedly the quietest washing machine. It is until the pump comes into operation. It pumps incessantly for up to ten minutes before the spin operates and it is extremely noisy. I have had an Hotpoint engineer visit and he brusquely said that this is normal. I wouldn't have purchased it if I had known this. My previous Zanussi was much better. Was the engineer correct?

It depends on the design, the way it is mounted on the machine matters a lot.Sometimes pump makes noise due air trapping. Check your water flow. Add 10 liters of water in the chamber direct and close the door. start the machine in usual w ... Dishwashers

Our Asko D1796 dishwasher has all lights flashing and is displaying a F2 message, which according to the good book means there is too much water in the machine. I have followed the instructions for a normal inlet time but the indicators will not change. Is it trying to tell me the Drain Pump is dead? A new drain pump was fitted three years ago. There is no eidence of water in the machine. Can anyone help? Thanks. Alan

Hi Alan,\015\012\015\012The F2 on Asko means it's sensed an overfill, that in itself though can be provoked by a couple of thing's. First, check for blockage at the end of the drain hose where it connect's to your household plumbing, be it under the ... Asko D1796FI Built-in Dishwasher

My dishwasher keeps trying to pump water out. The pump is continually trying to extract water. It doesn't make any difference where the dial is in the program. Any help much appreciated.

Make sure your drain hose from the bottom of the dishwasher goes up higher than the drain connection under the sink. if it does not this could cause a siphon problem. good luck If this is not the problem then sounds like your pump is getting power al ... Dishwashers

My GE Nautilus DW doesn't fully drain. When it is drained as much as it will it leaves water in the sump at the rear right. If you run the pump at that point, it sucks water out of the sump, but when you open the door and the pump stops water flows back into it. It seems like there is a check valve that isn't working. I have cleaned the sump and the screen which runs accross the rear. I also have taken the plunger out and cleaned it. Then I took the housing for the plugner off the bottom. I don'
