Assembly I recently purchased a pressure washer from Home Depot. It is rated at 3100 psi. It is a comet pump with a honda gas engine. The assembly instructions recommended that I remove the plug on the top of the pump and replace it with a vented plug that was provided. However, none of the other enclosed manuls talk about the vented plug. Am I reading the assembly insturctions correctly. Should there be a vented plug ?


HI your machine would have been delivered with a blanking plug in the pump. You will need to remove this and fit a vented pump or your pump will build up too much pressure inside. ... Comet BXD2527 Pressure Washer Pump

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

Due to the my Indesit IDL 530 dishwasher not draining properly, I turned it onto it's left side, removed the base plate and pump and checked for blockages in the pump and associated hoses, which were all clear. However in re-assembling it I have forgotten which way round to connect the twin wire plug to the base plate. I cannot find a relevant wiring diagram online and therefore cannot tell which is the correct way around. I then guessed and re-assembled it anyway, and as you might have g

GE Mod # GSD22360Z04WW will not drain water. I manually pushed the solenoid down and the pump and motor seemed to run. No water pumped out of the hose that was disconnected from the garbage disposer.

I rotated the control knob and at no time did the solenoid for the pump operate. It went back to normal position after control kn

I ran my pressure washer today in an effort to run some "stabilized" gas through it for the winter. For some reason the pump began to push oil out the top relief hole. If thats not clear, it's a feature that looks like a priming pump but is rigid. By the way, the oil appeared a bit nourish gray. Not sure if that means anything. Any ideas?


It looks as if moisture/water has contaminated the oil. Check the level of oil from the glass window. It must be high. Drain out the oil & check if water is present, if so then replace the entire oil. ... Dewalt DPD3100 Gas Pressure Washer

My bosh dishwasher SHX55M06UC/46 will not drain. A new disposal was put in and the dishwasher drain plug was not punched out and the dishwasher was ran that way. Now it just holds water in the bottom. I've tried resetting or canceling the wash cycle but that doesn't work and the washing cycle works fine. I'm hoping there is a reset or a safety for the pump if it gets clogged.
