Inside the nozzel, where the tip locks in, there is a groove for an o-ring. If that o-ring is missing, water will leak around the tip as you describe. Sometimes when the tip isn't fully seated in the nozzel and you pull the trigger, the tip goes flying out. The o-ring will fly out also. Most people find the tip but never see the o-ring. The o-ring is usually carried by any company or store that carries pressure washers.

SOURCE: no pressure from pressure washer

Do you plan on doing the repair yourself. I need more info, when you supply water to the pressure washer, pull the trigger to purge air from pump, and start the machine. Do you see water coming out from the bottom of the pump? Do you hear the pump working or is it quiet. If you hear a cycling pattern or hear the pump trying to push the water out but it isn't, then you may have a blockage inside the trigger or the spray tip. If the pump isnt building pressure then you may have a pump problem. A stuck check valve, cracked plunger, bad seal, or could be air bound.

SOURCE: When hooked up, (electric+water) unit

Dear Sir,
This is a problem like the ones I explained. I will write again the explanation.
Dear Sir, What happened is that you have a control valve (Spill Valve)..that when pressure is created it will closes down and puts off electricity by hitting a micro switch. This happens if one leaves a lot of soap in the system or more often the machine is stored under pressure. Never store a power washer under pressure!! Now all one has to do is locate the spill valve ...lubricate or change with a new one. Always lubricate with silicon grease. Also never put on a power washer on without water being fed.
The spill valve is usually located where you see 2 wires coming out on the machine inside.
Well just a small reminder.....if you left the machine stored with pressure...most probably you have the spill valve jamed in the closed position, thus cutting electricity off.
Regards, Fulltech

Water leak in front passenger side water leaks from heater box area and runs underneath front carpet whenever it rains or when car is washed

you possibly have a leaky windshield. Try turning the heater blower on high , close all the windows and doors and get a squirt bottle with a soapy solution and start squirting it around the windshield edge and see if you get any bubbles from where you squirted the soapy solution. if you do WAH LAH you found where the water is coming in from.

Cant unscrew Filter...

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 17:58 Wed evening.

Had the same problem with our Bosch- we live in a 'hard' water (lots of calcium) area and I had forgotten to give it a few extra decalcs over the year! I presume your water supply is similar.

I squirted anticalc fluid around the filter cover first but I then put 2 sachets of anticalc powder in the drum together with a large kettle -full of boiling water and left it overnight. It would certainly help clean the heating element at the same time, which is not a bad thing! I then ran a spin- to flush the fluid through the filter.
I then spent- probably an hour- gently but firmly turning the cover back and forward a fraction of an inch each way until it finally undid. This was only half of the story. Normally our filter attaches itself to the cover by a rubber ring but this time it became detached. So- lots of squirts and again lots of patience and eventually persuaded it to come out- FULL OF CALC!!

Best of luck!

The washer fluid in my 03 Honda element wont squirt how do if fix it

Investigation is the only way to find out what is happening, suspect items are pick up screen, discharge nozzels and pump. a quick test is to pull the hoses from the squirt nozzles, and see if fluid will pump. Frozen fluid will not pump.

AWW - the wiper fluid doesn't squirt out onto the windshield, it just sort of leaks onto the hood :((

are both nozzels doing this? if so open the hood, find the hose that goes to the nozzels and disconnect before the nozzels. if it squirts out good there then mabey the nozzels are clogged. to unclogg try breaking a hair off of a wire brush and using it to rod out the orafice in the nozzel

RE: Frigidaire Refrig/Freezer

try hot water and a turkey baster (or similar squirt device, I got mine at an auto parts store). squirt water into drain. a little messy but a towel or small wet vac should clean it up just fine.
