Karcher/Winner 11 - motor pulses when hose is not operating

\015 As above motor pulses every 4-5 seconds when power is on but hose gun is not in use.\015

Answers :

Hi, I had the same problem, Replaced the O rings and the rubber seals and cups inside the pressure washer and eventually the hose itself burst. Turns out the hose was leaking, internally between the inner sheath and the outside plastic cover, for quite some time and this caused the pulse. New hose and pressure cleaner is as good as new.
This is a common problem, caused by a slow leak somewhere in the high-pressure side of your machine. Unfortunately there are several possible root causes, most of which are not user-repairable (unless you are particularly mechanically-minded).\015\012
\015\012The simplest possible causes are external leaks, either in the trigger mechanism (is the spray nozzle dripping, even very slightly, with power on but gun not in use?) or where the high pressure hose connects to the machine (is the O-ring in good condition and well greased?).\015\012
\015\012If all seems well in these two places, then there's an internal pressure loss (which, again, can have several causes) that probably needs professional attention.\015\012
\015\012If this doesn't help, or you need more information, please post here again and I'll do my best for you.\015\012
\015\012Good luck!

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 have discovered that the plug for the disposer was not taken out where the dishwasher hose attached. The dish washer stopped working after a new disposer was installed. 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

Model Karcher 320H 1.141-205 When first switched on the pressure builds up and then the machine keeps no switching on and off, opening the trigger on the lance and it works ok, close trigger and the pulsing starts again, if left like this it would probably burn the motor out. I have lubricated the brass/plastic piston the operates the on/off switch but problem still exists. I have also opened the pump chamber but cannot see any debris or problems with the rubber seals.

Leaks from within when operated (not from hose connections).

If the motor runs continuously, rather than pulsing on and off, then this points to a major leak rather than a simple seal failure. If there's any possibility that the machine has been subject to frost, then part of the high pressure system may be sp ... Karcher Pressure Washers

I have a Dishlex Global 500 dishwasher (DX500lWW*b). Woke up the other night to find water all over my kitchen floor. The hot water hose connector to the hot water tap split (bursted). The dishwater was not in operation at the time but I can only assume when the hose bursted the dishwater came on to alert me? the code on the dishwater is displaying ''oF'' - which means Incorrect fill level of fill time. I have consequently had the hose connector repaired but the display still has the code ''oF''
