Answers :

HI This is caused either by a partially blocked nozzle on the end of your lance or the unloader valve sticking inside the machine. You can clean your nozzle by inserting a pin etc inside the end to clean it out. If this doesn,t work then it is most likely the unloader sticking. You need to remove the yellow cover and remove the unloader valve assembly.This is the bit that goes in and out when pressing the trigger. Remove this section then grease and oil the unloader and re fit. This should cure your problem.

My 1998 GE dishwasher leaks. Into the floor, now I see stains on the ceiling below. What to check? Door seal is fine. The dishes get washed. Pressure is good to go. No water out of the front of machine, seems to be coming from below. Take panel off and inspect connections? How about line from sink? Is there a site with illustrations or video repair about this specific problem out there? Any help is greatly appreciated...

My Karcher 411A seems to have lost pressure. Behaviour is this, when you press the water release on the spray gun you get 100% pressure for like 10 seconds and then it seems to dwindle down to 30-40% of its total pressure. When the pressure cuts down I can hear more noise coming from the gun sprayer aswell. So not sure if the problem is in the gun or the main pump unit ?

On an AEG Favorit 64570 VI we have an error 20. Manual indicates a drainage problem, however when we pour in water, it gets pumped out without a problem. No obstructing in the exhaust tube. Next we checked the pressure sensor, by taking it out and blowing into it. It clicked as pressure was applied to it, so the inner switch worked. Everything is clean, but still we get an error 20. What does seem strange is that the appliance does not take in water. Any suggestions are welcome.
