Having problems with your Honda 8 HP Engine ?

Powerwasher isrunning water is on squeeze handle and spray surges


Answers :

When spray surges, the unloader is activating. Make sure that tip is not clogged. Test with a different tip / nozzle that is correct size for your machine (gpm is marked on tip ). If changing the tip does not help, reduce the pressure at the regulator. As the unloader wears, it will not hold pressure to the point that it will need to be replaced or rebuilt (replace with new is best) .

I have the Coleman powermate 2400 PSI pressure washer and on initial start it sprays and has great pressure. But once I release the spray handle it will not spray again, not even one drop of water. I have verified water pressure, bought 3/4 hose, and also changed the spray handle with no help. Pressure washer was bought new at Lowes, but did not use for first three years of ownership, should have tested it. Thanks for any help on this. Ted Miller

I have the Karcher 2400 psi, 5.0 Honda engine. Starts fine, but when you pull the handle on the spray wand, the pump does not kick in and the water just continues to trickle out of the end of the wand at regular faucet pressure. Occasionally the "clutch" will kick in and you have full pressure, but if it does and I let off of the trigger then chances are that it won't kick in again. has been getting worse for several years.

The cycle did not complete,the bottom spray arm (the tip) melted along with some plastic utensils (knife handles). Water come out of thee front door.When starting the washer again, the top and bottom spays do not turn.


The handles slipped down keeping the spray arm from rotating thus causing it to rest against the heating element. It won't wash because of the hole in the bottom spray arm. You have to replace the spray arm before nything else can be determined. ... Frigidaire 24 in. PLD2850 Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher fills with water, but spray arms don't spray water or spin.

When the cancel button is pushed, the water is pumped out... as it should. Thanks for the help.

I have a Whirlpool dishwasher (Model #: du800cwdb5) and need help going about the repairs myself. When the dishwasher is turned on, the spray arm at the bottom does not spin, nor does it spray any water and the spray tower produces water but, rather than spraying, the water just kind of bubbles out of the top of the tower. The tower does also does not extend up as it supposed to.

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01DJSS0 seems to have water going to the upper spray arm (I see water coming out of the unit just beneath the upper rack), but the pressure doesn't seem to be high enough to clean the upper rack. No evidence that water is coming out of the spray arm on the very top. Lower rack dishes seem to clean OK. I have already removed the whole upper spray arm assembly and inspected the flapper valves that the middle sprayer goes into. I suspect that it's not making good enough contac
