How to clean out a power washer

Answers :

This sounds like you need to bleed the system of air. If you take off the lance and then hold the trigger untill you have a steady jet flow and then once this is achieved put the lance back on.

It could also be that something is blocking the nozzle of the lance.

I have a McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?

I am trying to clean my block paving using my pressure washer Karcher 3.99, which I used successfully last summer, however, it is not cleaning well. I have used the high power nozzle but the power seems inefficient to get the dirt out of the paving. Please can you advvise what you think the problem may be. Many thanks. Sue Thompson

Our GE Profile (Quiet Power 6) dishwasher is having trouble cleaning our dishes. The top shelf rarely gets cleaned and the bottom is questionable. It used to work fine. We always use Cascade powder detergent on a normal wash cycle. We have hard water. Any advice would be appreciated. I took apart the washer looking for an obstruction but none existed.


The obstruction can be external to the unit. Check the drain at EACH connection working backward from the sink connection all the way to the motor pump outlet hole.

Campbell Hausfield Pressure washer model 1549. After a few years of storage, I cannot prevent the powerful spray leaking from the connection between the Gun and the Lance. I replaced the O-Ring, and tried other means unsuccessfully. Spray from the joint is almost as powerful as spray from the lance nozzle. The Briggs and Stratton engine has been cleaned and operates well. The pump operates well. But the lance connection refuses to seal.


Hello,Most likely, the housing has split and seal is not being made. There is a chance that the hose is leaking where the fitting is crimped on (my experience, but different pressure washer). Are you able to see a leak when turned off b ... Campbell Hausfeld Pressure Washers

I borrowed my nieghbors power washer. It worked the first day all day. In the morning i filled the gas with a fuel stabiler, and 30 oil. I may have over filled it. Upon turning it on the oil started leaking from the air filetr compartment. It starts, but then smokes starts to fume and all the oil leaks. Did I break it or is it a easy fix. I cleaned the filter housing. Also the filter was soaked with oil. should i get a new filter and install it or what is the solution. need help.


You will need to get a new filter, and drain some of the oil out of the machine. If you over fill these this will happen. 90% of the time nothing is broken. ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer
