My karcher hds 745 is running but just won't build up pressure, this occurred after a really cold few weeks this winter and I hadn't put anti-freeze through the machine to winterize it. There's no water coming from the bottom of the machine when it's running as i've read that if the pump seals are faulty water will escape from the pump etc. The machine motor runs ok but no pressure is acheived on the gauge whatsoever. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Paul.

Appliance had been working fine now all of a sudden no water is running in the dishwasher.The machine appears to run through all of its cycles but without water. The water pressure in the ajoining sink appears a little low though the water pressure in the rest of my home is fine. I see no water leakage anywhere. Do I need to call an appliance tech or should I call a plumber? Thank you.

I have a Honda GC160 5 horsepower power washer with 2400 psi. When its cold it is easy to start but after it has been running for a while the only way to start it is to have the water shooting out of the wand. Once it is hot and running if i stop the stream of water (release the trigger on the wand) then the machine shuts off. It seems like the only way to keep it running is to constantly have water running through the wand. Please help

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.


Sounds like the unloader is not working correctly. Try replacing it and see what happens. ... Briggs & Stratton Prosumer 20324 Gas Pressure Washer

It appears that there is not enough water pressure through the sprayers to to wash food 'deposits' off the plates and dishes.We have well water and it has a some what high lime content so I suspact that there is some calcium / lime clogging in the machine.

The holes in the sprayer . rotating arms appear to be clean.The machine has been e

I just purchased a Simpson Megashot V3000 Pressure Washer and noticed the engine would stop running every time I released the wand trigger. Also, water was constantly spraying out of a valve underneath the unit - I assume it's some type of pressure release valve but there is no mention of it in the owners manual. I am thinking about returning it to Costco for a refund.

Bosch E15, I see from your site is a water pressure problem. (thanks) I think we have solved that, it old house water pressure gets low, needed resetting. But now how do I clear the error so I can try it? Sounds like there is air in the system. It is a French Bosch machine, the robinet ferme is blinking, sel & liquid rincage are lit, auto 45-65 is blinking. We opened it while it was running, and this all happened from that.

We have a Katcher HDS 3.5/30-4 M Ea. Was using it, stopped using it briefly in the middle of a job, pulled trigger again, and there was a lack of pressure. Went to the machine to troubleshoot. The "engine indicator light" is on. Checked the temperature of machine: fine. Water intake: fine. We have not been running it at high temperatures, but about 50 degrees C. The pressure was at about 2300 PSI before it stopped. Any ideas?

Hi there, I have a Karcher 2650 pressure washer that only pulses, does not reach high pressure consistently. Engine is running fine, filter has been cleared out, water pressure is OK. I even took out the cylinder under the black cap & checked it for deposits and greased it, still no go.

We have a Karcher G2500VH pressure washer. If you start the engine with the trigger pulled on the spray wand it will run at full pressure until you release the trigger. after that, when you pull the trigger it will not have any more pressure than the water hose feeding it. Does it have an internal unloader valve? What is the part number?

I have an older Landa Pressure Washer. The burner is not working. Once I get the machine running and water flowing to the pressure washer, with the wand pressed, I flip the burner on switch....and nothing...I have no idea how to work on a pressure washer burner.

Dishwasher confused Dishwasher was switched off just after cycle commenced (tablet had been released). On restarting dishwasher, it wouldn't take in water and has just been going through the motions of the cycle without anything happening. Even when the power button on the machine is switched off or the door is opened, the motor continues to run but without water. Water is definitely switched on under sink. I think the computer is confused - can you please help?


I suspect this is nothing to do with switching off during the cycle.take the bottom plate off and check if there is water leaked into the bottom pan. alternatively, if you can, tilt the machine back to 45deg and see if water runs out.most ... Dishwashers

GE Nautilus My dishwasher is approx. 6 years old. It has recently started having this problem. On the second cycle (the one where the little door inside opens and release the soap) does not want to work right. The door will open, but it is like there is no water spraying to spread it out. The soap (I've tried both liquid and powder) sticks and drys, running down the door and in the bottom of the tray.
