Having problems with your Karcher Pressure Washers ?

Folks, I have a Karcher 5.55 home water blaster that pulses at the highest pressure on the vario power spray wand. It works fine on the lower pressure settings and with the rotary spray wand. I live in a temperate climate, depressurize and drain after each use, always prime the pump, have good water supply, cleaned the filter etc etc. Any pointers on to do or test next? Any help greatly appreciated.

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

Low Pressure with no hose attached, pressure is good, attach hose without wand and pressure drops 50%. Have had pump apart 10 times, have checked bypass valve, have even removed bypass and filled passage way so water could not bypass wihout any change. Am down to thinking pump casting is cracked allowing bypassing to happen. Does each of the three piston chambers have a check valve so one piston is not pumping back into another piston chamber?

I have the Karcher 2400 psi, 5.0 Honda engine. Starts fine, but when you pull the handle on the spray wand, the pump does not kick in and the water just continues to trickle out of the end of the wand at regular faucet pressure. Occasionally the "clutch" will kick in and you have full pressure, but if it does and I let off of the trigger then chances are that it won't kick in again. has been getting worse for several years.

Bosch Exxcel model number SGS46E12GB had the check water light on a week ago, checked supply and cleaned filters, all good. light still on, got upset and slammed the door, light off. since then the unit will either wash stuff, or not. didn't seem the arms were spraying very well when I opened the door, so I bypassed the door switch tonight and put it through a pre rinse cycle.

No pressure Gas powered pump is a radial type from DeVilbiss. There is very low pressure, although there is some pulsing from the pumping action. There are no leaks and the supply pressure is good. Pump pistons are in good condition. They seem to be pumping when I had it disassembled and operated by hand. I suspect it is something in the bypass or unloader. Or it may be in the ''easy start'' assembly which I assume reduces backpressure on the pump when starting the engine. Pump has a temperatu

There is what I think adequate water pressure coming in from the top but no movement on the upper spray arm.

I have a 13 year old Siemens SE64630GB. It isn't cleaning items in the upper basket and I believe it's due to lack of water pressure in the upper spray arm leading to little or no rotation of the arm. Have cleaned out the drainage pump and removed and cleaned both the water feed pipe to the upper arm (a lot of gunk in there) and the spray arm itself (which also had blocked nozzles) - no apparent blockages now. Could there be a blockage in the circulation pump and if so how do I access this pump
