Follow-up I've removed the lower arm, I'll spend some time and see whether I can get the pobem sorted out. My wife noticed the the detergent was smeared all over the door and repeated tries didn't get it out. Therefore, the water is not spraying. I can confirm the water is filling on the bottom and draining. The heater is working well. I am thinking there is no pressure to send the water through the tubing to the upper and lower arms. The motor is hot to touch (118 degrees with my temp probe). I

I have a Whirlpool GU2500XTPQ3 dishwasher that is about 5 years old. The dishes in the top basket do not get clean. I checked the water tube that feeds the upper spray arm and the top spray and there aren't any obstructions. Our water pressure and temperature are suitable. Could the pump be plugged or otherwise lose its ability to circulate enough water to adequately feed the upper sprayers? How can I check on that?

The top rack isn't getting clean. Could this be a pressure problem our an internal problem? It's not whishing like it used to. The water isn't reaching into the glasses. I think the only water getting to the top rack is what is sprayed onto the bottom rack dishes.

My 1 year old gas powered Husky model HU80432 starts and runs fine but gets no pressure from the wand. Water is running freely through all connections and hoses so there are no obstructions, just no pressure, the water just shoots out in a thin stream for about 3 feet. I stored it inside for the winter so there were no freezing issues. What's wrong?

Whirlpool dishwasher doesn't seem to fill with enough water despite good water pressure. Therefore, pump sounds like it is cycling from pumping water for about 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds to pumping water for 2 seconds to going dry for 2 seconds, etc. Spray arms rotate only for the 2 seconds when pump is actually pumping water. Dishes do not get clean.

My Karcher 411A seems to have lost pressure. Behaviour is this, when you press the water release on the spray gun you get 100% pressure for like 10 seconds and then it seems to dwindle down to 30-40% of its total pressure. When the pressure cuts down I can hear more noise coming from the gun sprayer aswell. So not sure if the problem is in the gun or the main pump unit ?


Sounds more like a clog on the intake side. Check the filter and the hose on that side. ... Pressure Washers

My Frigidaire FDB935RHS0 top rack is not getting enough water (pressure) to rotate the top rack sprayer. We have looked at all the connections under the machine as well as the tubing, but we have not found any obstructions or problems. The water moves very slowly up the tube to the top of the machine and the water only seems to trickle out of the feed line therefore the sprayer doesn't spin or spray. We have disassembled the bottom sprayer and have found no obstructions there either. Do you have

I have a McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?

I have the Karcher 2400 psi, 5.0 Honda engine. Starts fine, but when you pull the handle on the spray wand, the pump does not kick in and the water just continues to trickle out of the end of the wand at regular faucet pressure. Occasionally the "clutch" will kick in and you have full pressure, but if it does and I let off of the trigger then chances are that it won't kick in again. has been getting worse for several years.

Whirlpool DU1101 Hello, My Whirlpool DU1100 is only 1 year old. The dishes are dirtu and the soap doesn't disolve completely My husband is convinvced it is low water pressure, primarily from a leak in the sprinkler system in the park behind our house. I think it is just a clog of some kind preventing the water from getting into the dishwasher fill and/or spray arms. The maunual says you need 20 120 PS to run the dishwasher I doubt it is below 20 PS because of a leak in the park. Is there anyway

It always seems like it never gets enough water to even make the spray arms work. I have even tried to make sure I am not running any hot water in the house.

I have a frigidaire dishwasher - model number PLDB998AC1. There are two spray arms in this dishwasher - lower and upper. The lower works fine but the upper spray arms are not spinning. There is what I think adequate water pressure coming in from the top but no movement on the upper spray arm. Here is what I know: 1) The water pressure and spray arms alternate between top and bottom. 2) The upper spray arm moves freely when I push it gently. 3) I have removed the pump and cleaned out an
