Most pressure washers have packings that can sustain a temperature of 140 degrees although it as strongly not recommended since the pump head heats up when in bypass mode(triggergun closed)best rule for pressure washer is never leave the trigger closed for more than 3 minutes even with a thermal sensor:):)

SOURCE: KOHLER HYDRO 13 When pressure washer engine is

first sheck the inlet screen where the garden hose attaches,if there is water flow then see if it has a manual pressure regulator, this will be a knurreled knob somewhere on the intake manifold of the pump, ifyou have one, turn it clockwise and see if there is a difference. If still no luck, disconnect the high pressure hose from the pump, start it and see if warer flows at that point, Your gun may be clogged or your hose may be delaminating on the inside and need to be replaced. If all this fails I suggest you bring it to an expert. These pumps can require special tools and expertise to repair internally

When my Kenmore machine is running on the wash cycle warm/warm no water is coming at all. I could run the machine only with cold water even on the cycle warm/cold.


Most likely the hot water hose is plugged up, or least likely, the hot/cold valve is broken or plugged up.
Find a large container, or better yet, hook up a garden hose that you might try the faucet where the hot water is hooked up and see if water will come out of it when the washer hose is not hooked up there.
If it will not, you have a plugged up hot water pipe or the water heater shut off valve is closed.
If you get good water pressure and hot water from the faucet, look at the filter screens that are inside the ends of the hot water hose and see if any are plugged up.
There may be several.
If not, perhaps the inlet water solenoid has failed. That plastic part is where the hoses attach to the washer itself.
God bless your efforts.

Error f20 w/ water coming out hot inlet (not hooked up)


yeah you need to connect the other hose because the mix valve just below that does not seal one or the other..those switches work with the water pressure..thats why the errror showed up..

I moved my washer and didn't notice how the hoses were connected. Is the hot on top or bottom? Thanks


There should be markings on the washer near the inlet valve that will have a "H" or "C" for hot or cold. If not, hook the hoses up and run cold water only. If the water comes out hot, you will know that the hoses are crossed. It won't hurt anything to run the machine this way.

Water goes thru. have hydrulic oil to level. gun semas to stick on. NOT GETTING ANY PRESSURE AT NOSSEL.


Hydraulic oil?
Is this a pressure washer?
Pump should be half full of SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil.
Engine should have 10W30 motor oil.

If you have a pressure washer ... and not water is coming out end of gun:
Take all hoses off machine.
Look at incoming water hose connection.
The should be a filter washer.
Clean or replace filter washer.
Hook up water and turn on water.
Water should come out other side of pump.
Turn on power washer and see if water coming out of pump is pressurized.
Now hook up pressure hose without gun.
Turn on pressure washer and see if water comes out of hose and is pressurized.
Finally, the gun may be bad.
We used to replace guns when they went bad.

Washer was working fine! Moved washer to new house, and now it will run but only with hot water. put washer on Auto controll, and cold cold or warm cold setting, and it wont even turn on.


Have you tried checking your cold water supply faucet? Are you sure there is cold water running out of that faucet before you hooked up the hose? Is it possible there is a shut off on the supply valve that isn't turned on? Therefore it will not run on cold water setting? This actually happened to me once. We went away for a week and turned the water off for the hot and cold supplys. Came back to do laundry and only turned the hot one on and not the cold. Good luck!

Pressure washer has no pressure coming out


I think yor hot water softened one of the pressure seals and has allowed it to buccle. This will drop the pressure away from the pump. It will require new seals to be fitted and the cost is close to $200.

Hot water just trickles in both of my Kenmore top loader washers


Try reversing hot for cold hoses and see what happens. That will test your valves, hot water pressure, etc. As far as I know, the valve screens are right where the hoses hook up.
