Answers :

There is a loader and unloader valve on your pump bolted to it. if it frozen in the open position it will never build press. most of the time this is caused by leaving cleaning solutions in system after use and let set up for a long period. it causes the aluminum case to corrode.;you will have to dissassemble and clean if not to bad. if not your going to have to replace.

My Karcher K3.48M pressure washer remains in the low pressure mode even when I return the pressure nozzle to the high pressure position. How can this be corrected. The pump seems to build up the pressure because when I release the handle the pump motor stops. This is a fairly new pump which was purchased in the latter part of last year(2010). Could this have been caused by the detergent I have been using which is an automotive shampoo? Please help I love this washer and for the times that I u

Troy-Bilt 2550 20293 pressure washer not producing pressure. Worked when last used 2 months ago. Pump pistons are moving up and down when engine is pulled through. Inlet water is flowing through pump but no pressure when engine is started. I have the same problem. Water flows thru the pump when not running, but no flow or goes in by-pass mode when I start the pump. The pump being Troy Bilt Model 020296-01. I replaced unloader valve even. Anything else I can do?


You replaced the unloaded valve. Are you positive you have the unloader screwed to pressure and not turned the opposite way? You will have no pressure if it is adjusted wrong. One other thing I have encountered is that the unloader has a ball bearing ... Pressure Washers

Hi ..I have an Excell gas pressure washer model no. Exwgv2121-3 with Faip 2100 psi 2 gpm vertical shaft pump..the problem is that there is water leaking from every weep hole at the bottom of the pump when running. Oddly enough,the pump still puts out significant pressure but less than it should due to the leaking water. What is the most likely cause of this?..is it the high pressure water seal(s)? If so,how do I repair it?

I have a Dewalt 3800 pressure washer fitted with a 67DX39G11 pump. Started unit up for the first this year, has pressure for 15 seconds then nothing. Water is flowing through okay, everything seems in order but no pressure. Unit is 2 years old but has only 15 hours of total running time. I think the pump has failed, is it normal for a pump to fail with only 15 hours on the clock?

The Hom Model No. 308653045 gas-operated cold-water pressure washer has a spring-loaded control on it and I am assuming that this control regulates the output pressure of the water from the pump . . . for example, 1500 psi to 2700 psi. Is it correct to assume that this control regulates the output pressure of the pump. If the control is a pressure regulator, how does one use it and, EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, can one under-adjust or over-adjust the control to a point where THE CONTROL OR THE PUM

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.

I have a pressure washer with a Honda gcv190 engine. The motor runs great but there isn't any water pressure. I removed the manifold and pump and found some mineral deposits and cleaned everything out and while attempting to reinstall the pump on the crankshaft I noticed the key was missing.

I have two questions and would greatly appreciate some help: - What oil to use in the pressure pump of a Ryobi Pressure Washer RY80030? - How much to put in? The pump model is MTP092150 from FAIP. As per the manufacturer, the oil is not to be changed or topped up by the end-user, I know, I know, but brought to a service center instead - I certainly don't want to do that, and there is none close to my place anyway. The reason I need this is that I had to take the pump apart and a

Water pressure? I read somewhere that low pressure of the incoming water will make it so that the items on the top drawer will not be as clean. I don't see how this can be the case, as I thought that the way the washer worked was that the washer filled (at whatever speed) and then the machine itself pumped the water through the system at the appropriate pressure. Please clarify.


Mom...not true. The water fills the machine which then uses its own pump to spray the dishes with the water/detergent. If your dishes are not getting clean, use the recommended amount of detergent. Hard water will require a spot treatment like Jet ... KitchenAid KUDR01TJ Dishwasher

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?
