Having problems with your Karcher Pressure Washers ?

My Karcher K5000G was working perfectly today but then it began to be slow reingaging the pump when I pressed the wand trigger. Then it stopped engaging completely. The motor runs fine but the pump doesn't engage. What could cause that and how can I fix it? Thanks for any help!!! Moxy

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob. Could this cause a problem with the timer motor? Or does this sound more like a pump out issue, impeller? I'm thinking its


First,inspect the drain float. Make sure it rides on the micro switch correctly or it will not take on water.Check the float micro switch for continuity. Check for power at the water valve when it calls for water. Remove the wire harness from the tim ... Maytag 24 in. PDB1420 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti


I doubt that it has anything to do with the capacitor on the motor. i think you are having a problem with the actual Motor Drive circuitry. What is happening is when you close the switch, this tells the Motor to "Ramp Up" to pump the water out, what ... Craftsman Pressure Washers

Hello, I have a Kitchen Aid (model # KUDMO1T JWHO) dishwasher that runs the motor in all cycles, with water fill & drain working fine, but the pump is not pumping water during any cycle, as the spinners and the inside of the washer are dry when I open the door, except for the water sitting in the bottom. Also, no normal swishing sound of water when the motor runs in any cycle. Looks to me like a mechanical break in the pump drive. How do I check the pump drive on this model? Do you have any

I have the E3 error on my Smeg DWI614 dishwasher which would indicate a heater error, however it is heating the water in the bottom of the machine but it seems to time out. The main issue seems to be that the recirc. pump is not running during the heating phase. I have taken the pump out, checked the connections etc. twice now and everything seems fine (the motor runs when tested). When I have done this (both times) the dishwasher has started again and run for 20+ cycles fine, then the issue com

I have a CDA CW494 dishwasher, which is a rebadged Whirlpool. The pump has been changed by a service engineer, using a Whirlpool part instead of the original, apparently it is superior. It seemed to work OK, but now the main jets only squirt for a short burst when the motor stops or starts. The rest of the time the motor can be heard running, but no water comes from the jets. Could the motor be running in reverse?


I would check to see if there is any blockage in the area of the dishwasher where the water collects to be recirculated through the pump back into the washer. It sounds as though the water isn't being allowed into the pump enough to continue the was ... Dishwashers

I have a Generac pressure washer, model #01450-0, with a Honda 5hp motor. The motor runs fine, but the pressure hose pulsates as if the pump is intermittently making pressure, and the pressure out of the sprayer is about half of what it should be. A friend suggested replacing the seals in the unloader. I bought an unloader kit, replaced everything and it still runs the same. It will build a small amount of pressure, spray for a few seconds, then the pressure dropps to almost nothing. Any help ap

The last time I used the pressure washer was running fine. A few minutes later I tried to start it up and could barely turn it over. I removed the recoil and could turn it a little easier backwards.

LG LDF6810ST had OE error. Disassembled found no obstructions blew air through and vacuumed hoses to air gap and to disposer, no obstructions. Never heard pump run when starting cycle, so replaced drain pump. Still doesn't run. Looked at the service manual, and the only other suggestion is repair circuit? Is this the circuit on the bottom right of unit or the pcb up top? Wires and connections all look fine. What else could it be. Any suggestions appreciated!

My Karcher K3.48M pressure washer remains in the low pressure mode even when I return the pressure nozzle to the high pressure position. How can this be corrected. The pump seems to build up the pressure because when I release the handle the pump motor stops. This is a fairly new pump which was purchased in the latter part of last year(2010). Could this have been caused by the detergent I have been using which is an automotive shampoo? Please help I love this washer and for the times that I u

A GE triton dishwasher causes hammer noise when stops filling. The sink faucet works fine as do all the other faucets in the house. I cleaned all of the traps in the dishwasher. Because the sink works, I don't think it is a sink valve problem. I turned off the water to the house and drained the system, the air chambers should be good. Is there some component of the dishwasher that could be causing the noise? Would cleaning the pump help? If so, how would I do that?


The cause of the hammering noise, (slamming) is due to the water inlet valve on the Dishwasher (DW) shutting off abrutly once the DW reaches the proper amount of water.\015\012\015\012If this is an older DW, you might want to replace the ... GE Dishwashers

My model KUDP01IL dishwasher used to drain fine. Now it will not drain even after you press cancel. It sounds like the pump is running (2 minutes) but water remains at the bottom.

My Bosch diswasher is hanging up in the cycle (at 102 mins. in normal cycle and 38 mins in quick cycle). I hear what sounds like a one second pumping of water into the sink area, a pause, and then another one second pumping of water, on and on, but there's no progression beyond this point. One possible cause: a few weeks ago someone turned off the hot water at the heater and another person tried to run the dishwasher. The dishwasher did not function because it could not get hot water.

Still seems to wash and definitely pumps water but sounds like a "motor with a broken belt." Checked filter and rotating spray arm - no problems.

The motor is running fine and some pressure is coming out but not like it should. I used it a couple of days ago and it could peel the paint off a car and now it will hardly knock any dirt off my deck. What could be the problem.

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!
