Having problems with your Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer ?

I have a Husky 2600 PSI power washer with the Honda GCV160 engine that I can't get to start. It was okay when I purchased it from Home Depot last spring but now I've tried putting new gas in it, spraying carb cleaner, new spark plug, and it still won't start. I only ran it for about 30 minutes when I first purchased it. The guy at the service desk at Home Depot told me that the water hose should be attached and turned on while trying to start. Is this true or would this be starting the motor und


Answers :

You can eliminate the motor by unbolting the pump from it and then if it will start the problem is with the pump or the unloading valve.If it does not start with the pump removed then you check for spark and get the carb cleaned or have a kit put in it.If it does start then check to see if the pump turns freely,if so disassemble the unloader valve and clean and lube it so that the pump and motor can relieve the pressure it needs to when the trigger is not engaged,if the pump can't be easily turned by hand then then pump needs to come apart,dealership should do this.

Home Depot has a lawn mower with the Honda GCV160 Electric start version engine. They also have a pressure washer with the Honda GCV160 engine.

I purchased a new dishwasher on 2/22/07 at the Home Depot in Parksburg,Pa. I first had to have it repaired on 4/28/08 for wires stuck to inner door. They repaired two broken wires and added insulation so wires do not stick to the door. The second repair was a little more than two months later. On 7/18/08 they had to install a new motor because the motor locked up. Both times I waited several weeks due to not having money and appliance center being busy. I used J.B Zimmerman in Blue Ball,P

I have a new Frigidaire FDB1050RE diswasher. I ran it for the first time set on normal wash and pressing both the Hi-temp wash and heat dry button. This cycle is supposed to take a total of 89 minutes to complete including the drying cycle. After 89 minutes it was still in the wash cycle so I cancelled it to preserve sanity. In the instruction manual it states that the water temperature must be above 120°F. Our building's water heating unit is set at 110°F. Why there is a lower temperature


It should still work pretty well but you probably can't use the high temp wash because it will take too long for the dishwasher to heat up the water enough to satisfy the high temp washer thermostat. If the thermostat's calibrated closing temperature ... Frigidaire Dishwashers

Clean light comes on my Kenmore Elite Dishwasher Model # 665.17263. This happened once before and has to do with the heating element. The service guy showed me how to press the buttons in a certain sequence to "unstick" the unit and it worked fine. The Quick Rinse light keeps flashing. When I push a previous sequence recommendation it switched to pots n pans and Quick Rinse and Cancel all started blinking. Then in about 2 minutes went back to Quick rinse.

Hi there, Just moved in to a new place and loaded up this dishwasher. First set it to "normal wash", dry "off", "start". Made noises but after a couple of minutes I heard no water and think I smelled the beginning of something overheating. Think I checked to see if the water was turned on under the sink (turned all the way to the right?). Still nothing but noise. What do you think? Lorraine


Lorraine.. It sounds like the water valve under the washer is stuck or maybe partially shorted. It is a solenoid coil activated shut off valve. The coil may be overheating, and valve not opening.. so motor is running dry. \012If you want to ta ... GE Nautilus 24" Built-in Dishwasher

GE Dishwasher, model: GHDA470MBB When you turn it on, the motor seems to run for a minute or two and then just stop. It started not cleaning the top rack, I ran JetDry hardwater cleaner in it. Then the bottom rack didn't seem to be getting clean either. Next, it just doesn't seem to work at all as described above.

Brand new Miele 2170/2180 dishwasher. First time we try to use it, it stops after a few minutes, the warning beep beeps incessantly, and all of the program lights are flashing. According to the manual, we should turn it off and on and then try again, which we did. The problem persisted. The manual says that this may indicate "a technical fault" and we should contact customer service. Unfortunately, they are closed for a three-day weekend. Any suggestions?
