Spa pump k55mygrd-8367

Most common and likely situation with this,... mechanical pump shaft seal has failed. This allowed water to enter into the electrical motor and lubrication from the front bearing had been washed away. The purpose of the shaft seal is to keep the water OUT of the motor!
Now as motor spins, bearings with less lubrication gets a lot hotter!
And... When metal gets hot, it gets soft! What was once perfectly round and lubricated, is now getting oblong or square and not lubricated. Square bearings don't spin well and are not as quiet as round bearings! Hence your loud noise. Oil on the shaft will do nothing. You either need to replace both bearings, front and back, and absolutely replace the shaft seal or, replace the motor and the shaft seal.

After water drains from drumand machine stop it slowly starts to leak from bottom . Pump is still full off water should it not be empty?

No the pump should and must have some water in it at all times if ALL water out the seal in it will burn up (water makes a excellent lubricant frreze it and it becomes very slippery)

Makes a squeel while filling, only while filling on the right side

The squealing is coming from the impeller seal on the water pump. You can try to lubricate the rubber impeller seal with silicone spray lubricant. If that doesn't work, replace the pump.
It the squealing goes on too long (weeks/months), the seal will begin leaking water onto the pump. Eventually, the pump will rust and short out, possibly ruining the electronic control board -- which can cost big $$.

Windsheild fluid runs out of the resivor

Most washer bottles have the pump assembly mounted directly in the bottom of the bottle and after several years the seal on the shaft between the pump impeller and the motor can become worn and hard and start to leak. Also the tube on the outlet of the pump could be loose or has become disconnected allowing any fluid to run out. To check, remove washer bottle from vehicle (you may have to remove other components to access the attaching bolts) and check security of outlet tube. If split or loose cut a bit off the end and re attch to outlet. If the seal on the pump shaft has been leaking and allowing water into the motor, there will be some corrosion on the inside and minimal lubrication on the bearings. You could try dismantling the pump and applying some water resistant grease to the shaft seal and bearings, but it would only be a temporary fix. Best option for this fault would be to replace the pump motor assembly.

Topeak joe blow pumps front but not rear tire

What's different?
  1. Rotate the wheel so the valve is resting just above the floor. Remove the valve cap.

  2. Unscrew the locking nut on the valve stem. Quickly press down the stem to loosen the seal. You should hear air escaping when the stem is pushed in--if you do not, loosen the nut and try again.
  3. Press the pump head onto the valve and flip the locking lever to make a seal. You'll hear air escape, but it should stop after you've locked the lever. If air continues to leak out, remove the pump head and reattach it.
  4. Make two pump strokes and listen for air moving into the tire. If the pump handle becomes hard to press down after only a few strokes, or if the pressure gauge elevates extremely quickly, remove the pump head and repeat Step 3.
  5. Inflate the tire to its recommended pressure. Remove the head by unlocking its lever and quickly pulling it off the valve stem. Secure the valve's locking nut and cap.

When I pump up the Green Thumb two gallon sprayer, air escapes from the top in the center by the pump handle. Also why must I add oil to the holes in the top?

You add oil in the two holes to lubricate the seals around the pump shaft. Maybe the seals have dried up now and that is why the air leaks by.

Very hard to pump

It needs lubricating. Take it apart, clean it, then put machine oil on the moving parts and seals. If seals are damaged they need replacing. And, please only use it for target shooting.

PS-1000 Seal

The seal replacement on most pumps requires the capacity to separate the motor from the pump and to dismantle the wet end. Upon dismantling, it will become clear as to where the seal components are to be replaced. The spring half is found in the seal plate and must be knocked out and reinstalled with a properly sized driver and the ceramic seat is attached to impeller. Be careful not to damage the polished surfaces of seal. A light coating of a silicone or teflon based lubricant is most helpful ..
