... Dewalt 3700 Pressure Washer

Karcher 2400R I have not used my pressure washer for 6 months. It was left full of gas in the garage. I tried to start it but it would not fire up so I change the gas, oil, and spark plug, took apart the carburator and cleaned it out with carb cleaner. I went ahead and put everything together, pull the cord and wanted to start. While trying to start it after I sprayed starting fluid in the air cleaner I noticed that gas was coming back from the crankcase breather hose into the air filter choking

No water pressure coming out while ingine is running. hoses/ attachments not clog. Pulled and opened pump, didn't see anything broken although noticed pump was filled with oil/lubricant but about 1/4" below top surface. Is it suppose to be filled to the top? What kind of oil is used on the pump? And how come there's no water pressure coming out while the motor is running and handle trigger engaged?

Why is oil coming out the side of my pump, I just changed the oil and it started doing this? I own a Porter Cable 4,000 PSI.


You didn't state your model number so I don't know exactly which type pump you have. With that; there is no 'oil pressure' in power washer pumps. The internal parts work in an oil bath/splash environment and the pump body is vented, usually at the ... Pressure Washers

My Bosh Model# SHE4AM02UC/01 Is not cycling. Started with the soap dispenser not opening, progressed to the drain pump not staying on. When you turn it on, the pump runs for 2 seconds. water solenoid opens for another two seconds, and then the "clean" light comes on. If I go to quick wash, or to pot scrubber it might do a regular cycle. I did pull the pump to remove a piece of glass before this all started, but can't imagine that would be the cause.

Telmann Dishwasher TEL 12DWM. Dishwasher started to make weird wooshing start-stopping sounds at the beginning of the wash cycle so I stopped it. Since then the lights are on but wont go regardless of where the switch is set to. Have pulled the pump off and the inlet pipes and blown to remove any blockage but still no luck. Cant get into the water jet part due to connectors that require specfic tools to remove and replace. Any thoughts?? thanks in advance, Michael

I have a Karcher 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR that I have used once last summer. I have stored the PW in my basement with no fuel in the gas tank.

My gas power washer will not start. I filled the gas, checked the oil, set the choke, made sure it was on, changed the spark plug, checked the air filter, and drained any water. When I pull the cord to start I don't even get a putter. Anything else I can try or do I need to take it to a service place.

My Troy Bilt power washer (using Honda GCV160 engine) has no pressure coming from the pump. I checked the water flow, everything seems fine. I believe the pump needs oil added, however, I can't seem to firgure it out (how to add oil to the pump). I did notice that previously, I used to see drops of oil coming from under the pump. I I have a bad seal, can I add oil and test the pressure before I change the seal? Please advise.
