Why is oil coming out the side of my pump, I just changed the oil and it started doing this? I own a Porter Cable 4,000 PSI.


You didn't state your model number so I don't know exactly which type pump you have. With that; there is no 'oil pressure' in power washer pumps. The internal parts work in an oil bath/splash environment and the pump body is vented, usually at the ... Pressure Washers

My Troy Bilt power washer (using Honda GCV160 engine) has no pressure coming from the pump. I checked the water flow, everything seems fine. I believe the pump needs oil added, however, I can't seem to firgure it out (how to add oil to the pump). I did notice that previously, I used to see drops of oil coming from under the pump. I I have a bad seal, can I add oil and test the pressure before I change the seal? Please advise.


I had a similar problem. Turns out I had left the hose disconnected and some sort of wasp built a paper type nest inside the washer tube that the hose connects to. I had to take the pump off and take apart and then cleaned it out with a screw driver. ... Honda Black Max 2600 PSI Pressure Washer

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray

No water pressure coming out while ingine is running. hoses/ attachments not clog. Pulled and opened pump, didn't see anything broken although noticed pump was filled with oil/lubricant but about 1/4" below top surface. Is it suppose to be filled to the top? What kind of oil is used on the pump? And how come there's no water pressure coming out while the motor is running and handle trigger engaged?

I have a Miele 24 in. G638 Plus Free-standing Dishwasher which is leaking into the pan underneath the machine (and triggering the polystyrene float switch) I am almost certain that the leak is coming from the main pump seal. Is it feasible to replace the seal (it looks like a major job to take the pump assembly apart). I guess Miele labor charges would make the repair not worthwhile Is there a service manual for this machine. I guess I would need it

I just purchased a RMV2.5G27D Universal pump. Installation was easy, but I have two questions. 1. No where in the booklet does it say to put oil in it, does it come with oil already inside? There was no oil in the box but the instructions kept refering to 2.2 ounces of oil. 2. It had a red plastic plug opposite the water intake, included was a brass plug that fits into that area, does the plastic plug stay or do I put the brass plug in it?


The red plastic plug comes off, that is the plug that is only used for shipping. You should have got a ventable oil plug to replace that one in the box. The oil you would need is this ... Annovi Reverberi RMV2.5G27D Pressure Washer Pump

I bought a secondhand Miele 2830 LaPerla dishwasher. I hooked it up today. As soon as I pressed the start button, i heard the pump anf it gave me an F68 error and water leaked out of the bottom in such a way that I could not see where it was coming from. I know f68 means the circulation pump is running when it isn't supposed to. Since I heard the pump, I imagine that is working. So any advice on how to fix this?

Had the Northstar 3000 psi Pressure Washer for 2 months and it started leaking oil from the pump during use. Took it to Northern and they are replacing the pump under warranty but said it was likely because I was using quick connects on my garden hose coupling and that was restricting the water flow making the pump overheat. They said never to use quick connects on the garden hose unless the opening is at least 5/8". Does anyone make such a quick connect? I hate having to screw the garden hose o

I have a Bosch Exxcel dishwasher which runs the drain pump constantly even with the door open and despite there being now water in the machine at the cycle wont start. I have checked the warer amtrix and the ffed hose to the sump for blockages. The float switch operates OK but when the water drains down the float drops and the water is pumped in, then the float rises and water leaks out and the drain pump kicks in again and no more ater will come in unless you push the float down.

Hi, I have a Hoover silent whisper HD98E dishwasher and it's leaking. I know where the leak comes from. Once the machine is on, it pumps the water through the salt container and through these 3 pronged blue container (located on the side). One of these prongs leaks. I believe it is the washer. Can you tell me where I can buy a new washer? Are they specific to Hoover dishwashers or can I get them from Plumbcenter? A quick answer would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
