Having problems with your McCulloch MCCFH180B Electric Pressure Washer ?

Pressure washer leaks

\015 The pressure washer McCulloch 1800 psi FHH1 18a)leaks water from the side of the power washer motor. It leaks no matter if the washer is on or off. My guess is that there was some water left in the pressure water over winter and this caused a seal to break, can this be repaired? Do I have to by a whole new assembly? The pressure washer works fine, it just looses as much water as it sprays while the hose is hooked up.\015

Turn water on then actuate wand trigger. Pressure washer leaks when wand trigger is actuated and has very low pressure/flow output. After releasing trigger the pressure cycles on - off at approx 1 second interval.

I have a Karcher K3.48M electric pressure washer which used to shut off when you weren't using the cleaning wand. This no longer happens and there is alot of water running out of the bottom of the unit. (This didn't used ot be the case) I expect a leak somewhere inside the unit, but I'm wondering even more if there is a pressure switch which has failed that cased the leak. In other words, if I find and repair the leak and there is a failed pressure switch, it will likely only break again. I can'

Hi ..I have an Excell gas pressure washer model no. Exwgv2121-3 with Faip 2100 psi 2 gpm vertical shaft pump..the problem is that there is water leaking from every weep hole at the bottom of the pump when running. Oddly enough,the pump still puts out significant pressure but less than it should due to the leaking water. What is the most likely cause of this?..is it the high pressure water seal(s)? If so,how do I repair it?

Smeg DWF612WH dishwasher has developed a leak. Water comes out of the rectangular hole on the side of the water softner used to mount what looks like a level or pressure switch. A few seconds after the fill valve opens water leaks out, not a lot just a small trickle. After the washer has filled and goes ito its cycle, it does not leak again. Over the past weeks the problem has got progressively worse.

I have two DeVilbiss issues: First, on my pressure washer, I no longer get pressure on "high" mode from the hose. I prime the pump but it doesn't seem to be creating enough force for a high pressure. Second, on my generator, the gas from the gas tank leaks out. The tank is plastic or poly and don't know if it's a gasket issue.

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine. I have felt underneath and it appears that the water is coming from the second opening from the rear. Is there a pressure relief valve there. I have a manual but cannot find any descriptors for underneath the motor.
