I have a Sears (Briggs) 2550 washer mod # 580.752190, has been working great but when I got it out last week it wouldn't start with the water on, I turn the water off bleed the pressure out the wand and it started and ran great, I thought it might be the relief valve, I removed the valve turned on the water, a big stream was shooting out the hole where the valve goes, I started the engine and it ran but sounded like it was about half loaded. where do I go from here ? Thanks.

Northstar Hot Water Pressure Washer (model #157322) While using the pressure washer the safety relief valve activated venting steam and hot water from it... I immediately shut it down and let it cool down. After it was cool, I turned on the water supply again and the relief valve was still spewing water from it.

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.


If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers

Pressure Washer I have a Porter Cable pressure model no.PCH2401.It works fine for 5 minutes,then I can hear the motor loading down and then it stalls out. I tried to start it and it was very hard to pull on. disconnected the water supply and if was very easy to pull and started right up. I noticed the pump was very hot.This unit has a thermal relief valve on it,shouldn't it have released when it gets to a certain temperature .I was thinking maybe this is why it might be shutting the motor

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

If I remove the check ball under the stem assembly in the motor in the bottom of the tub, water flows, but I'm not sure if the top bar turns then (with the door open I see water coming down from the top, but never saw

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a
