Having problems with your Karcher K2.26 Electric Power Washer ?

Used the suction tube with a deck cleaning solution. later I tried to use it with a car wash solution and it would not pull the soap in to wash the car.


Answers :

Howdy,

vacuum injectors are finicky suckers (pun), and can gum up easily. If you disassemble them, clean the metering pin with steel wool and the ports with a q tip, they sometimes come back to life. Always flush the lines out completely with clean water, especially when using a caustic or concentrated cleaner...

Hi I have a Kelvinator KD12ww/mm dishwasher. I have noticed that my glasses and other plates often do not get cleaned properly. I do use the setting for glasses etc. I also tried to add salt once in a while and after every wash I clean the filters. I tried to drain the water etc and have no other solution. The dishwasher is just over a year old. Any other ideas would be appreciated. Thank you Natascha

Hi I have a Dishlex DX302. After an intense wash it leaves a film of scum / powder on the dishes and sometimes does not wash properly. I have tried using various soaps and also tried to use a dishwasher cleaner. It is still happening. What it is the problem? Is that just the way the Dishlex washes ie.e not very well?!

When trying to start the dishwasher, pressing the Normal wash button, the dishwasher gives a huge clunk and then it trips the circuit breaker. Upon resetting the breaker, I tried the next button over, which is Soak and Wash, and it seems to go thru the cycle fine. Another time I tried the Normal button, but put the left dial on Rinse and it started up, but it would clunk periodically and it seemed to have a 'hot' smell. I'm worried to use it - what could this be? Is there anything else I can try

I have a Maytag quiet series 400 dishwasher. I set the required buttons for a wash, inserted the soap in the soap tray but the machine will not start. Previously, when the washer would not start, I opened the door and pushed down on the soap tray and its seemed to fix the problem. Next time I used the machine, again not starting, but by pushing on the soap tray it would not start. Can you suggess what the trouble may be or give me a check list that I may do before starting the washer. This machi

Subject is Bosch dishwasher SHU6800. There is a soap residue left on dishes. Residue is not visible. Using two glasses taken from a recently completed wash cycle I rinsed one under tap water and then filled glass with tap water. The second was just filled with tap water. There is noticeable soap bubbling and foam in the second glass. Starting the 10 min rinse/hold cycle following completion of a full 60 min wash cycle results in considerble soap foam in the bottom of the tub. Have tried thr

2 years old but NEVER used it yet. Put on today and it would not run any cycles. Let in water and emptied it out but would not do a wash cycle. All this from start to finish in about 8 mins.

Checked all the waste pipes and filters - all clean - By the way it was still empty of crockery when I tried to do this. Bosch Model SHV55 MO3GB

Won start Was using the pressure washer 1st time this year and started on the second pull. Ran out of gas shut-off also noticed it needed oil. Believe, I put too much oil so, I drained some and added gas. At first, there was no resistant in the pull so waited an hour and tried again. This time the resistant was there on the pull but still would not start; no attempt even to turn over. It's been a couple of days...changed the spark plug although, hardware guy said nothing was wrong with it..still

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

My KitchenAid Model KUDE70FXSS 2 dishwasher is new to us today and has never been used before. It was hooked up professionally, but I assumed it would work, so tonight when I tried to run it, it lights up on panel, but it won't run any cycles. It will start putting water in the machine, but then cuts off. It starts making a grinding noise underneath the machine, and it clicks like it is trying to work, but the water doesn't wash. Hmmm. Anyone know what to do?

My Maytag dishwasher is 9 years old-- Model number MDB7100AWW, serial number 27754072ZQ It has worked fine until about a month ago, when I began noticing a kind of "scum" on the silverware and some of the dishes after completing a wash cycle. The top rack will squeak and have some resistance when pulled out, whereas before it always came out smoothly. I have always used powdered Cascade. I've tried using less, thinking I might be putting too much in. Then I got a rinse agent. These thin

I have a du1145xtpq7 whirlpool dishwasher. Out of the blue it quit working completely. The sensing and washing lights light up, but when it goes to the next step of just washing nothing happens. The soap dispenser door opens and there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher. It wasn't making any irregular noises, unless I'm just used to them since it came with the house. Any advice you have would be appreciated. Thanks.

Our 2470scvi has caused all of our glassware to turn white. we use very little soap and we always use rinse aid. It seems to me that it is not rinsing properly. It actually has a sound for about 10 seconds that sounds like a motor is stuck.. This sound occurs twice in each cycle. It seems to wash ok but not great of which I would expect for a supposedly top of the line machine. This problem has always happened and the machine is 3 years old.Is this normal for a miele?

Karcher 2400R I have not used my pressure washer for 6 months. It was left full of gas in the garage. I tried to start it but it would not fire up so I change the gas, oil, and spark plug, took apart the carburator and cleaned it out with carb cleaner. I went ahead and put everything together, pull the cord and wanted to start. While trying to start it after I sprayed starting fluid in the air cleaner I noticed that gas was coming back from the crankcase breather hose into the air filter choking

Bosch dishwasher, Model SMU 7056, UC 09, FD 7309. My older unit has operated flawlessly for years. Two days ago it started to "stall" in one cycle and not progress to the next, e.g., stayed in the wash cycle and would not move on to rinse. In addition the heat generated in the machine was way below normal. A repairman told me that if the water doesn't get hot enough, the unit will not move on to the next cycle. I always use the "Regular Wash" option, but tried other options such as 'Economy

Soap has collected and hardened inside dishwasher and comes off and flakes on the dishes. I have tried cleaning with a few cycles of 1 cup vinegar (no dishes) and making sure the water is the hottest. I also tried Dishwasher Magic which did not help at all. Can I use Lime Away? Is that safe? Or will that poison me with the next cycle of dishes? Is there another solution? Thanks, Missi Walkyourbike

Coleman power washer PW0912201. Water is blowing out of the chemical pickup tube when water hose is turned on prior to starting. After starting the water realy blows out from there.

Do I need a new manifold kit? or am I looking at the wrong part to correct this?

What secret or special hand shake is there to adjust the wash tank temp. on a Hobart AM-15T dishwasher. I know how to do it on the AM-14 but with my luck there is something different one has to do on this machine. I would hate to try and damage something. This unit uses natural gas to heat the water. Can you help? Thanks!

My new Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB2415LFC) has not been used but is out of warranty. It has a leak with water dripping from two connectors (may be the heat coils) attached to the bottom of the dishwasher (located in the center). Why would water be dripping from this location and what is the repair solution? Should I try to return the dishwasher and obtain a replacement?
