Having problems with your Campbell Hausfeld Pressure Washers ?

I have an electric power washer model PW181000AV with about 25 hours on it. Got home from my winter retreat and used the power washer about 1/2 hour on the driveway. Everything worked fine. Went to complete the job the next day, and the motor would not power on. No sounds at all, like it wasn't getting electricity. Did the standard trouble shooting with ground fault and on my own electrical system. Been using the same outlet for all the time I have owned the power washer, so distance is no

I have a Honda GC160 5 horsepower power washer with 2400 psi. When its cold it is easy to start but after it has been running for a while the only way to start it is to have the water shooting out of the wand. Once it is hot and running if i stop the stream of water (release the trigger on the wand) then the machine shuts off. It seems like the only way to keep it running is to constantly have water running through the wand. Please help

So I found this power washer for sale. The seller claims that the washer generates a good stream of water, not just full power. He also mentions that after a few minutes the engine starts to bog down like it is working extra hard. Does this sound like a pump issue? Could something be clogged or would the pump need to be replaced? Or should I avoid this power washer?

I own a KUDS01FLSS3 KitchenAid dishwasher. The lights on the control panel do not come on and a cycle can not be started. There is about an inch of water in the bottom of the dishwasher basin and it looks like the previous cycle did not complete. I have checked the wall outlet that the washer is plugged into and the washer is receiving power from the wall. And ideas? My next thought was to take the door off and check the power supply running to the door panel and control panel.

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 Honda xr2600 power washer. When I tried using it, water was squirting from the top of the gun. I took it apart to find that there are o-rings on top of some kind of washer---looks like a lock washer but it's made of cardboard??? Two of these washers were broken. I can get the o-rings but I can't seem to find the washers. I tried getting the manual for this model on line with no luck. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Lost Power We always run the unit before bed on the delay timer. I heard it kick on last night. When we woke up this morning I first noticed that the clean light wasn't on. Then I noticed that the dishes were still very damp. Lastly it has about a inch of water laying in the bottom of it. It appears that it just lost power during the cycle. What are some areas I may trouble shoot before calling in a repair person. Thanks

I own a build-in LG Stainless Dishwasher (modle: LDF1178ST). It stopped draining water during its recent startup due to its idle (no operation) for about a year:). I can only feel the hose full of water by touching the drain hose between the washer and the sink desposal. It's hard to check other part of dish washer since it's built in our cabinet. Could any dishwasher expert help to advise how to trouble shoot or fix this problem. Thanks, Alex Chen 571-220-7484

I have a 7 hp B&G craftsman Pressure washer , if I place an air filter on it ,it wound't start or run , if I remove the air filter it would run like a champ, but after 10 mints , oil would shoot out off the carb like a running faucet , why is it not running with the filter on,.Now am not so sure if the air filter is the correct size , because when I put it on it seem to be a bit on the taller size rather than a perfect fit, thanks for your help , in Hollywood , Reinaldo Roman .
