I have a "dirt blaster attachement" for my pressure washer that rotates at high speed. If you have that part, it should work fine.

SOURCE: What PSI will the simpson

The pump is fine ( 4200 psi at idle shows that) First guess is your nozzle is either the wrong size or worn. Leaks at connections would also cause lower psi.

The LE error code keeps flashing why?

LE means level error. The water fill timer timed out before there was enough water in the machine to clean the clothes. Try this:
  1. Turn the hot and cold water supply taps, located at the end of the fill hoses, as far as they will go toward the "Open" position.
  2. Move the washing machine away from the wall, and examine the hot and cold water pipes for kinks, twists or other obstructions.
  3. Unscrew the fill hoses at the washing machine, and inspect the small plastic screens inside for signs of an obstruction.
  4. Check the water pressure in your home; a reading lower than 30 psi might cause the fill times to extend beyond the time the washing machine is programmed to wait. Slow flowing faucets and shower heads are a sign of low water pressure.
  5. Call for service.

Why does my washing machine leak water from the detergent tray?

Check the water pressure of your house. If it is above about 75 psi, it will cause the problem you describe.

If you house pressure is fine, then either your water inlet valve on the wash machine is opening up too much during fill, or the dispenser itself is defective.

If your wash machine is still under warranty and your house pressure is fine, then have a repairman take a look at it.

Good luck!

How do I release pressure from the hose on a pressure washer

would it be possible to unscrew the quick connect fitting SLOWLY until water starts to drip out of threads thus allowing the pressure to drop down slowly to the point of being able to release the hose coupler?

What PSI will the simpson Model WS5040H maintain while in use? I have had difficulty getting anywhere close to the rated PSI on a DeWalt 4200 PSI unit. Idle the pressure stays at about 4200 but as soon...

Engine is difficult to start when cold
  1. Check the battery condition, battery state of charge and starter motor current draw. Replace the battery if marginal and the starter motor if the current draw is beyond specification.
  2. Check the battery cable condition. Clean the battery terminals and replace corroded or damaged cables.
  3. Check the fuel system for proper operation. A fuel pump with insufficient fuel pressure or clogged injectors should be replaced.
  4. Check the engine's tune-up status. Note the tune-up specifications and check for items such as severely worn spark plugs; adjust or replace as needed. On vehicles with manually adjusted valve clearances, check for tight valves and adjust to specification.
  5. Check for a failed coolant temperature sensor, and replace if out of specification.
  6. heck the operation of the engine management systems for fuel and ignition; repair or replace failed components as necessary.
Engine is difficult to start when hot
  1. Check the air filter and air intake system. Replace the air filter if it is dirty or contaminated. Check the fresh air intake system for restrictions or blockage.
  2. Check for loose or deteriorated engine grounds and clean, tighten or replace as needed.
  3. Check for needed maintenance. Inspect tune-up and service related items such as spark plugs and engine oil condition, and check the operation of the engine fuel and ignition management system.

My frigidaire affinity lafw8000lw0 4.4cu ft washer wont wash or spin it just stays on sensing? I just got it a few days ago what's wrong with it?

Has this unit worked before with no issues? I have seen a couple of these units that will stop washing at the point where it would need to allow more water in for a rinse and just go into sensing or pause then. I have seen in the install guides that the frigidaire front load washers can be a bit picky on the water supply. They are requiring no less than a 1/2" supply water line (from the valve to the water main as well as the washer hoses), they are requiring no less than 22 psi water pressure and no more than I believe it is 100 psi water pressure, they also require no more than 5psi difference in pressure from the hot water line to the cold water line. What that meant for one customer is that if they had a hot water shower running in thier premanufatured home that the plumbing in the home was not large enought and it ended up dropping the hot water pressure several psi and it would throw the washer into a error. I have seen this now in several affinity units locateded in either trailers or premanufatured homes. If you notice a water pressure drop for example in the shower if someone runs the washer or dishwasher then you could have a pressure issue with the washer. I hope this helps some.

My pump pressure is 10psi i cleaned the de filters they seem fine i have good floe out of my jets but when i hook the pool cleaner up pressure drops to almost nothing. could my impeller be the problem

The pressure you are reading is the pressure in the filter tank as water is pumped though it. When the filter is freshly charged, 9 PSI is a good pressure.

As the filter removes particles from the water the filter gets "dirty" -- it takes more pressure to push the water through it thus raising the PSI.

I think you are viewing this in reverse. Low filter pressure is "good" (as long as it stays above 8 PSI) -- as the filter cleans the water the PSI will increase -- when it gets to 15-20 PSI it needs to be back-washed and recharged.

The pressure drops when the pool cleaner is connected because pool cleaners always pull in air (in varying amounts) because of all the hose connections. This causes your filter/tank pressure to drop.
