Having problems with your Northstar Pressure Washer 3000 PSI ?

Have a northstar model 157182d with an electric motor and the suction tube that pickups soap or chemicals does not work. Not sure also what position it needs to be in when I want to use it.


Answers :

Hi there PBM,

The siphon will only work at low pressure.
The wand should have several different nozzles. There is a specific low pressure nozzle.

If they are color coded, it is usually black, If nothing else, look for the one with the biggest opening. and attach it.

The siphon will work with it

I have a neff dishwasher that is maybe 5 years old. im pretty sure there is nothing wrong with it as it was working perfectly fine before i had a plumbing problem a few days ago. after the plumbing problem was fixed the dishwasher doesnt seem to want to fill any longer. it sounds like it wants to work but its just not filling and going thru the cycle. does it just need to be reset or something? im not sure of the model number as ive misplaced the directions for it. could you please help? by the

Greetings! My Bosch SHE3305UC/UC12 has worked faithfully until last week when we had to pull it out of its home to retile the floor. Upon reconnecting all of the connections, it no longer works properly. The initial drain cycle works, so the flood switch is fine. But after draining, it just quietly hums. The test cycle actually seems to move to the next step for about 30 seconds, before also just humming. I'm thinking I need to check the valve, but not sure how to do it on this mod


Hi\015\012\015\012The hum sound indicates a bad motor and it should be\015\012replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.\015\012\015\012Daniel ... Dishwashers

I have a built-in Bosch dishwasher SHU 4302 UC. It no longer drains the water out at the end of all the cycles. I have tried everything mentioned in the booklet (make sure water is hot, use the jet-dry stuff, make sure outflow hose doesn't allow water back in). I have to siphon out at least a good bucketful of water. (Also, only the regular wash cycle works, which is fine with me.)


The problem is a solenoid on the bottom of the unit. It is a small black cylinder next to the pump. It operates the valve that changes to the drain cycle. You can probably order one from Bosch ... Bosch 24 in. SHU43 Built-in Dishwasher

I have had this dishwasher for almost 4 years. It used to do a great job but last few months it has been doing a really poor job. Leaving food on dishes and also a film on them. I have taken everything apart and cleaned it good. I have tried different detergents, ran several diswasher cleaners in the machine. Even ran vinager in it because thats what i do for my coffee pot when it needs cleaning and it works great. We have very hard water here so I thought that could be the problem. Its frustrat

After a power surge the dishwasher does not work at all. It just beeps constantly. There are no lights on the touch pad at all. The only thing that stops it from beeping is to remove the 2 pin black and white wires. I replaced the control module. Nothing changes. Do I need to replace the touch pad? What about the 3 digit clock? These parts together cost 145 dollars. I do not want to buy these parts and put them in to find out that did not fix the issue. I also unplugged the

My maytag quiet series fills with water and then starts for 5 seconds then stops. This happens 4 times and then the entire system just stops. To help troubleshoot I used a screw driver to trigger the closed door so that I could leave the door open when the cycle starts and the pumps seems to be working and water sprays all over the place. I also took apart the impellar blade to make sure there was nothing jammed and everything is clean. Maytag MDB7500AWW

I have an Optima series G1470 or G2470 dishwasher with a heavy panel on the front to match the kitchen cabinets. I want to tighten the door spring so I can open it more gently. House guests tend to let go of the door part way down and it bangs open the rest of the way. Also, I have not put salt in. Do I need to in Wisconsin? If so, what kind of salt do I use? Thanks, MJ

Hi, We have a Smeg ST 663 dishwasher that does work. However, sometimes when you want to use it and turn the power button on it beeps twice with the red light flashing and you can't get it to work or change the settings. Sometimes if we leave it for a while and try it again later it will work, but it is annoying as sometimes it won't want to work for ages and we really want our dishes cleaned!

Our SB915WJ doesn't heat water though the heating element is ok, I checked with my multimeter. Is there a mains relay or something i need to change in the circuitry to fix this problem?

The unit is only eighteen months old. I'm not impressed with it's working life.

We had a repairman out, he cleaned out the pump intake, and we are careful to clean everything before putting it in the dishwasher.

My dishwasher is not working properly, i have cleaned all the filters and spray arms, but still have food partials all over dishes. I did use a knife to hold down door latch so i could see what was happening when the dishwasher is working. Water does come out of the spray arms but they don't move and the dishwasher is empty, also now the latch won't catch since i used the knife.


Make sure the water temp is not too low. Make sure the pump is not clogged up with debris Check that hoses and spray arms are all clear. Remove spray arms and clean the holes in them.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III (Model GU1200XTKB0). I have used it previously on "Normal" cycle and I always keep it on Air Dry. Last night I used the "Pots and Pans" cycle and it seemed to work fine. But this morning the Air Dry light is flashing and if I press a cycle key the Rinse Only light starts to flash as well. Nothing works. I have made sure that the console is not locked. Any suggestions? I do not have a Heated Dry button, only Air Dry. Thank you.

My 5-year old Bosch dishwasher leaves a somewhat fine grit on dishes? especially obvious on the inside of glasses. I use only Cascade detergent, use a rinse aid, don't overfill the machine, and always make sure that the filter at the bottom of the dishwasher is clean. I also make sure that the spinner is able to move freely. But, after all of that, I sometimes get very clean dishes; even more often, not. I see no rhyme or reason. I am presently looking at an entire load that has gone through

GU1500XTLS3 Periodically won't start. Dishwasher has power because pressing cancel causes dishwasher to start draining (even though there is no water). Door switch works because opening door prevents starting drain cycle. No other button on control panel will work except for the 'air dry' / 'lockout' button. Turning off circuit breaker for 15-30 minutes and then turning circuit breaker back on seems to fix the problems but only for a couple uses and then it stops working again. Need ad
