Having problems with your McCulloch FHH18A Electric Pressure Washer ?

Bypass valve stuck?

\015 My power washer ran for a few minutes, then stopped. I hit the reset and it started, but stopped again. It did this a few times, then resetting it failed to start it again. Someone suggested that the bypass valve is stuck, but I'm not sure if it is, or how to fix it. Any ideas...?\015

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?

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.

What should I check next?


You may have dislocated the connection that controls the AquaStop circuit.\015\012\015\012This is linked to the inlet hose. Either the connector linking the inlet tap to the inlet valve is loose or the float switch has triggered.\01 ... Bosch 24 in. SHU53 Built-in Dishwasher

Neff Dishwasher Hi; I have a Neff slimline Dishwasher that won't fill with water but works ok if I fill with a bucket. I have searched the net and found that it probably has either a stuck float or a faulty inlet valve. The probelm is I can't find these things. Should I pull it out and turn it upside down or what?
