Ar xmv3g30 pressure washer

The plastic filter cap on the bottom of the water intake has blown-out. I replaced the plastic cap and it immediately blew-out again. Only thimg I can think of is the values(do not know which or where) are allowing back pressure enough to blow out the bottom of the plastic cup that holds the screen filter. Any Ideas???

SOURCE: north star petrol pressure washer.

Sounds like the regulator is sticking or is airbound. loosen the water connection and then tighten it back. Could also be that the trigger gun is faulty or needs adjustment. Hope this helped

SOURCE: honda pressure washer cuts out when lance trigger released.

You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or BPR6ES plug.
You need:
Feeler gages
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet

Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.

SOURCE: Need a part for Homelite model HP3127S pressure washer - 3100 PSI

I lucked out when I managed to locate a local rent it centre who sells and services Homelite equipment. I bought my pressure washer at Home Depot and when I approached staff there regarding my problem, they had no idea if there even was a local dealer who sold/serviced Homelite stuff. telephone enquiries finally led to the rental place who ordered the part for me. I was getting concerned!

FH error on display


An FH error usually means low water flow into the washer. This can be caused by debris in the filters between the intake hoses and the washer, closed water valves, low water pressure or a problem with the system that checks the water flow.

Some intake hoses when they detect a leak will seal themselves. So you may want to replace them. Shut off the water valves and remove the hoses from the washer. Check the filters for debris. With a bucket under the hoses, open the valves and check the rate of water flow. You may want to check the filters on the valve side of the intake hoses after turning the valves to off again. If water flows into the washer and then into the drain, reset the drain hose. The outlet of the hose should be above the water level in the washer. Otherwise, the water will suction out of the unit.

If these parts are fine and there is still no water flowing into the machine, the intake valve is faulty.

If you are getting the error when the washer is full of water, it's the pressure switch or the flow meter. In a few cases, the cause is actually damage to the air hoses connected to the pressure switch. If one of these thin tubes is leaking, the pressure switch will not work properly.

I hope this helps.

There is a problem with the water supply. This could be a symptom of kinked hoses, clogged filters in the intake valve or low water pressure.

Turn off the water shut-off valves and disconnect the hoses from the washer and then the shut-off valves. Place a bucket under the hoses to catch any water that drains out of the hoses. Check the filters both on the washer and at the shut-off side of the hoses. Sometimes, you need to use needle-nose pliers to pull out the filters from the intake on the washer. Make sure that the hoses are not kinked when you reinstall them. You may want to replace the hoses. There are some hoses that will seal themselves if they detect a leak. This will slow the water flow to the washer.

While you have the hoses off the washer's intake, test the water pressure by measuring the water flow into your bucket when you open the valves.

Also make sure that the washer discharge hose is not below the washer's water level for your load size. This leads to the water flowing in and then out of the washer before it fills the machine.

I hope this helps.

My Maytag Ensignia washer is leaking water from the pump area of the washer. I've eliminated the drain hose and I've traced the leak up to the area of the plastic casing around what looks to be the...


Look for broken plastic casing of the pump. A hairline crack would also leak water. Check for proper fitting of flexible hoses to & from pump. Another thing is to check for loose filter cap. A loose filter cap or broken O ring of the filter cap can leak water.

there is located at the bottom front of washer a filter screen that should be checked from time to time and can cause fault codes and functioning problems if dirty... remove bottom cover on front of washer there are 2 to 3 screws located near the floor and the front lower panel can be removed.there is a plastic clean out cap that can be removed (be advised there is about a gallon of water in these things so have a few large towekls available to catch the water or a good shop vac as your taking the cap off which unscrews start a shop vac up to catch the water or have the towels ready.... also while doing this unplug unit you do not want to get water on any electrical parts in the unit... check screen inside and run your fingers in the clean out and check impeller for loose change..also check the hose that comes to the clean out as sometimes loose material can be sitting in it as well and when water pressure runs through it will be pushed up into clean out....good luck to you

Kitchenaid dishwasher KUDP01IL upper spray arm not spinning although water supply appears to be adequate (water sprays from jets but the arm remains stationary).


Just had the same problem, and fixed it. Spray arms turn with proper water pressure in the pipes. 3 reasons can lower the water pressure. 1-pump motor losing power (wasn't my case) 2- cracked pipe (wasn't my case either, pipes, although plastics, seem to be very solid) and 3- debris in the pipes/filters. (It was my case) At first, it looks difficult to reach de filters, but it isn't.
1- Remove both baskets, the top one by removing the front plastic cap on the rails.
2- Remove the "+" bottom spray arm, by unscrewing counterclockwise (if I remember well...) the plastic screw dead center of it (use your fingers.)
3- Remove the three screws you see, but don't try to remove the filter part right away because there is a 4th screw under the leading water pipe, the one leading water to the top spray arms.
4-To remove the 4th screw, you must remove the plastic pipe that connect with the top spray arms. Easy. It's beeing held there by two clips, one on the back wall and one on the top wall. Just spread them with your fingers (or screwdriver) and turn the pipe toward the right side, to free the bottom part of the pipe from the middle/bottom spray arm holder, you'll have to bent it a little so it passes over the heating element.
5- Remove the last screw. Now there's nothing holding the bottom part anymore. just remove by moving it back and forth left and right (to loose it up), be carefull not to lose the clear plastic washers on the main shaft when removing. Now if your dishwasher is like mine (should be) you should see a lot of debris that couldn't reach the chopping device. In fact, the water couldn't flow properly because of all the debris stocked there by the bottom drain filter. Patio screws (?) small chicken bones, etc...
6- If you can find something to pump the water resting at bottom there, (I used a Prestone coolant tester!) you'd have a better view, and could remove the single screw holding the chopping device cap in place. That's the last step. Notice that the chopping device cap, even after the screw is removed, still look like firmly attached, like "glued", but there's absolutely nothing else holding the cap. Just shake it with your hand and it will eventually come off. Now you remove all the dirt/debris you see there, and then follow thw step back the rebuild the washing machine. On my part, it brought it back like if it was brand new..., but, now I'm being a little more carefull about the stuff I'm putting in there...
I hope it can help, English is not my first language.
Good luck

Vehicle began to overheat, started wanting to stall, service engine soon light came on


check coolant fluid level, after vehicle is cool allow vehicle to run adding coolant/water till the tank is full, then let it run for one minute and shutoff, allow engine to cool and **** in fluid, and more water and coolant (dextron coolant) and start the vehicle back up after it has cooled complety down. with the cap off the coolant place hand over cap, if you get immediate back pressure this isnt from thermal expansion is from a blown head gasket. also for this check to ensure water pump isnt leaking, because the pressure generated by a blown head gasket will blow out water pump seals, if there is no back pressure, but a leaking water pump, just replace the water pump.

Troy Bilt power washer 020293- Oil in air filter


that is incorrect. if the oil has been over filled, it will saturate the filter element by way of the crankcase breather tube. it is the small plastic pipe that connects to the bottom of the filter housing. check the oil level. these machines take very little oil. approx 20 oz. if overfilled, it will leak out filter.

Ge front loader


It took us a while but we finally found it. It is behind a panel. This panel is in between the top part of the washer(the section that has the door, in other words the actual container for the clothes) and the bottom drawer(if you have one). You have to remove the panel by removing some Hex nut bolts. After you remove the panel you see a plastic cap. After you unscrew the cap, you see the filter. Yucky things may start draining out immediately after you unscrew it so have something below it to catch it. We had tons of water come out on one occassion. By the way, the plastic cap looks kind of like the cap on your car you have to unscrew in order to put gas.
