Having problems with your Dewalt 3800 PSI Pressure Washer ?

DeWalt DPE3800X runs fine for 10-15 minutes but after it warms up, it shuts down and is very difficult to get running again. I expect that there might be an issue with the pressure valve but can't be sure. Any suggestions?

In between wash cycles, water seems to back up into the dishwasher. I had a plumber take a look at the drain and disposal in the kitchen sink to see if there was an issue there. He suggested to have appliance repair tech to come look and indicated that he believed that the issue may be the "cylianoid" valve. Does the this valve prevent water from backing up into the dishwasher after it has drained?

Our Maytag model MDB4010AWW (8 1/2 years old) is leaving food stuck on the dishes and glasses on the top rack consistently. We've run several bottles of Dishwasher Magic through in the past few weeks which has only helped the problem a little. We posted this question to a similar forum a few weeks ago, and it was suggested that the wash pump might need replacement. What's the average life expectancy of a lowend dishwasher like ours? would it be more cost effective to replace it rather than to sp

Our Miele Incognito G843 SCVi dishwasher was shipping backwater from the sink drain. I found a rubber band in the non-return valve that might have been preventing a seal of the ball joint.
