Having problems with your Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer ?

When I power the Karcher 520M water pours from the handgun - there is now leak until pressure is applied. the pump does not cut out but I don't know if this is a problem with too much pressure causing the leak or too little pressure because of the leak. there does not seem to be a way to dismantle the handgun - is this correct Bill


Answers :

Not too much pressure, a bad gun.

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?

Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure washer leaks when wand trigger is actuated and has very low pressure/flow output. After releasing trigger the pressure cycles on - off at approx 1 second interval. I suspect that the plasstic oulet tube is leaking causing low pressure leak out of bottom when trigger is actuated and causes pressure switch to cycle when the trigger is released. Any Help? This pressure washer is approx 18 months old!


You gave a very close solution yourself for the problem. But other leakages can cause such symtoms.Forexample a leaking head or a leaking chemical inlet. These can be caused because the spill valve (pressure control valve) is stuck. When this valve s ... Karcher PSI Electric Pressure Washer

I have a kohler command pro 8.5 on a porter cable pressure washer. Yesterday it started just fine. Today I pulled the start rope and there was no resistance and the engine did not turn over. The pull rope rewound just fine and I tried again with the same result. After several tries it caught just a little near the end of the pull and the engine started. What is the cause of this problem?

I recently replaced the water seals, V-packing & all six check valves in a CW-3504-4MGH pump on a MiTM 3504 pressure washer that had very low pressure. Usually this would fix most pressure problems on most machines, but in this case it had little to no effect. I suspect that the unloaded is the culprit in this case, but since I have had little experience in repairing unloaders (let alone adjusting them). I would appreciate feedback from anyone that has experience in this area. Thanks

Leaking This is a problem that I have when the dishwasher is in drying mode. I will find a 5X5 and sometimes smaller, size water spot under the dishwasher after the dishwasher has stopped. I was told it was the vent were the steam comes out and I had that replaced. It still leaks, then they told me to replace the rubber around the door, still leaks now they order a whole new plastic interior door. Please if you have any ideas what could be causing the problem, please let me know. Thank you

I have had 3 Karcher pressure washers all experience the same problem and so have two of my neighbors. Our area has very hard water and it causes problems with the washer not bringing up the pressure when the trigger is pulled (or surges up and down) and the nozzles clogging, etc. The service repair facilities cannot tell me how to prevent this. Many attempts to contact Karcher for advice have been ignored. I have been thinking that perhaps running the engine for a few seconds with no hoses a


If your water is that hard (and it appears it is) WD40 will NOT solve the problem. You should look into a water softener. However, chances are that a small, inexpensive model will not have the flow capacity required for a pressure washer. You'll like ... Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer

Smeg DWF612WH dishwasher has developed a leak. Water comes out of the rectangular hole on the side of the water softner used to mount what looks like a level or pressure switch. A few seconds after the fill valve opens water leaks out, not a lot just a small trickle. After the washer has filled and goes ito its cycle, it does not leak again. Over the past weeks the problem has got progressively worse.

I just bought a used Kenmore standalone dishwasher and ran it for the first time. The dishes on the top did not get clean and the soap did not come out of the closed soup dish. at one point I took a shower and was wondering if that might have influenced the water pressure enough to cause the problem. Is the soap supposed to open during the wash and could the poor water pressure prevent the top shelf from getting properly washed?

I have the two drawer dishwasher. It's about 10 years old. The top drawer continues to work OK but for the last three attempts when I run the bottom drawer water gets out into the drip pan below and gives the F1 signal. I can dry the drip pan out and clear the F1 signal so the top drawer works. But running the bottom drawer causes water to leak again with the resultant F1 signal. There is very little water in the bottom drawer (just a little in the filter bowl) so I think the pump is pumping

Leaking dishwasher There is standing water in the dishwasher when it's not being used. Recently we had a garbage disposal installed and was wondering whether this may cause the water from the sink to settle in the dishwasher. Also, the water rises and leaks on the floor. We have to run a wash cycle to drain and dry out the dishwasher. What do you think the problem is?

My dishwasher (Kenmore Elite 665) doesn't use up all the detergent in the detergent cup - it always leaves a little behind at the end of the cycle. the dishes don't get quite as clean any more, either. I recently replaced my old water heater - we were getting lots of little plastic pieces in our faucet screens. I'm guessing that the water pressure may be low, and that it may be due to the same problem. Is there a screen-type filter that filters the incoming water, before it enters th
