I have a Kew. 1502v power washer. When I start it there is full pressure at the lance for a moment. It remains like that until I switch off and the process repeats itself all over. The heater is

I removed and cleaned the valve at the pump end. I notice that there is a reed valve there and am wondering how to confirm if it is working. I disconnected it from the board but no help.

SOURCE: Karcher pressure washer won't start

Dear ralph_birtwi,
Most pressure washers when their gun is released, the machine stops automaticaly. This is done ny means of a control valve. When the gun is closed...pressure is built and the control valve moves and switches a micro switch off. In your case the micro switch is still closed in off position. Now this happens if a machine is left and stored with pressure in it., This control valve could get jammed and leaving the micro switch in off position. It could also stay in off position by sticking, due to incorrect chemical.
So the control valve or even called spill valve, must be renewed.
Sometimes a little lubrication with the right type of silicon grease will get the control valve working again. This job is sometimes delicate and better done by a qualified technician.
Regards,
fulltech.

SOURCE: I have an old kew pressure washer and when I pull

Dear dennis_partr,
In general all pressure washers have a control valve. This is sometimes refered to as the Spill Valve. When the trigger is pulled, the spill valve is in normal position. When the trigger is released, the spill valve compresses to let water circulate from its bottom part. If when the trigger is pulled and the bottom part of the spill valve does not close, then water keeps on circulating and hence no pressure. In this case change the spill valve with a new one. Also there could be a fault in the sucktion valves. If the sucktion vaves do not close, also water keeps on circulating. One also can examine the delivery valves. If these are not closing, then water is being sucked while delivering. Hence no pressure. Another cause but very rare, is that the swash plate that is pushing the pistons got loose. The electric motor will be turning, but the pistons stay in the same position.
I mentioned many causes, but usualy it is the spill valve. If with a new spill valve, there is still no pressure....then you must tackle the sucktion and then the delivery valves.
I wish to add that I assume that you have the correct lance and correct nozzel size. A worn out nozzel, will result in low prssure too.
Regards,
Fulltech.

Could be just a faulty capacitor that helps the motor to start. You will find this next to the motor if you remove the top cover.

Karch k591. it stops and starts on full pressure - is worth repairing?


not really. It sounds like either a motor or unloader problem I work on washers full time and in my honest opinion these electric washers and a ripoff. You cant work on them as they dont even use industry standard parts. I would invest in a gas engine washer for small homeowner needs. If you must use an electric one, stay away from the ones at Walmart/homedepot etc. check out pressurepro com They can give you better options. Good luck

It isnt very clear your explanation of the problem but what type washer do you have first? It sounds like you have a bad unloader or need a new variable nozzle tip. Can you explain in more clear detail. Thanks

Dispenser is clogged


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

The Water is not emptying even tho I have unplumbed hose and put it at flOor level. It is 10 years old. Is it worth repairing?


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. Take a try and DO NOT ORDER PARTS UNLESS IT IS CONFIRMED.

If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

I have a small leak coming from under my machine that I noticed at the end of the cycle on emptying my machine. Could this be a problem with my filter?


Any leak can be easily identified only if you can take a closer look with a good observation lamp.
So this can be from a faulty hose connector, a faulty hose, faulty drain pump/valve, drum gaskets- door gaskets or the inlet valve.
Once this is confirmed you can replace the gaskets or tighten the hose or clean the drain valve/pump.

Not getting oil to the lifters on my 1991 evolution engine.I have blown out all the lines and have oil pressure but the top end is still bone dry


Have you taken the tappet oil screen out and cleaned it? It's the round plug that looks like it takes a large screwdriver to get it out. If so, then your oil pump is not working.

The oil pump has a slider valves in it. It's under the plug towards the outside of the pump. When the engine first starts, the oil pressure is directed to the tappets. Once the oil pressure rises above a certain level, the slider rises and then it allows oil to the bottom end. The tappets get the oil first.

The oil is pumped from the tappets up through the pushrods to the rocker boxes. Now, your rocker boxes are not going to be flooded with oil either. There may be a small puddle of oil somewhere but most of the oil drains back down to the bottom end of the engine where it is scavenged out and sent back to the oil tank.

If you do not have any oil pressure to your tappets, they will rattle like all get out. It'll be obvious. Now, there are three drive keys in the oil pump. One drive key for each set of gears, feed gears and scavenge gears. And, one drive key in the cam chest that drives the entire pump. Remove the oil pressure switch and spark plugs. Spin the engine with the starter. If no oil comes out of the hole where the oil pressure switch is, I'd advise pulling the cam chest cover (nose cone) off. Once you get it off, look at the gear on the end of the oil pump drive shaft. You'll be able to see the end of the keyway in the shaft. Now, notice if the slot for the key in the gear on the end of the shaft is aligned with the slot. If not, the key is sheared. If the key is sheared, you're probably had a tooth break off of the plastic breather gear and it's gotten caught in the scavenge gears and locked the oil pump up. You must remove and clean out the oil pump and replace the sheared key. If the breather gear is broken (or even if it's not) I'd recommend installing the new S&S Reed Valve type breather. It doesn't rotate and works great. Solves the problems in that area.

Good Luck
Steve
