\015 The end of the drain pump nozzle where the supplied drain hose attaches there is a red rubber flap that appears to be a backflow prevention device.Is this correct or is it something that is to protect from obstructions entering during shipping and to be removed at installation? I can can find anything in any of the included paper work.\015

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model DA 6141. For some time now it has not been completely discharging the water at the end of a cycle. But sometime it does completely dicharge.Two days ago it started leaking water from its bottom at the end of a cycle.I tried to locate the leak but was unsucessfuly. All the external plumbing is ok andf there is no leak from the discharge pipe nor water intake pipe. So perhaps its something to do with the water pump?

The pump doesn't seem to put out enough water pressure to turn the various revolving heads/nozzles in the washer - all washing heads are operable (ie unblocked) while the S shaped nozzle at the base and the small round nozzle at the top/ceiling of the cabinet do revolve slightly or slowly - but the two main nozzles spout water but not enough to revolve Is this a defective pump or a partially blocked pump ? - or something else - I have checked everything else and they appear to be functioning

I received a second-hand as-is Akso D3530 (model #107353001) dishwasher. It washes perfectly fine, but at the end of the cycle, it keeps running. It does not seem to be the drain that is running, but rather the circulating pump.

I also checked the float sensor in the bottom. The float sensor is not tripped, and when I manually trip it,

Campbell Hausfield Pressure washer model 1549. After a few years of storage, I cannot prevent the powerful spray leaking from the connection between the Gun and the Lance. I replaced the O-Ring, and tried other means unsuccessfully. Spray from the joint is almost as powerful as spray from the lance nozzle. The Briggs and Stratton engine has been cleaned and operates well. The pump operates well. But the lance connection refuses to seal.
