SOURCE: High pressure hose connection blew up. Fix? or buy new?

Yes take it to napa auto parts and they can cut and attach a new end which are for hydraulics. They are crimped on and meant to hold very very high pressure. I used to use a pressure washer everyday for a living and it was a tractor rental/repair shop and we used the hydraulic fitting machine on the power washer hose all the time so rest assured.

SOURCE: Cant change the high pressure hose on a Karcher

On the Kärcher, you have a bayonet mount at the base of the tip end of the pistol grip. This is where you attach different types of nozzles and gadgets after having removed the existing sprayer tube. Just push in and turn a quarter of a turn, then you pull it off the pistol grip. The hose is possible to remove from the machine as well, an ordinary threaded mount but since you need the pistol grip to regulate on/off this is probably not what you want to do. If the telescopic wand is made by Kärcher it should be very easy to snap it into place just like when you removed the sprayer tube/nozzle. If the attachment was made to fit Alto washers there is an inexpensive adapter that works very well. Good luck!

SOURCE: Pressure washer starts then shuts down in 2 seconds

hey mate,

It sounds like your bypass valve/unloader valve is sticking when pressure builds up in the lance,hose and head the pressure cleaner changes to a recirculate mode so it does not blow out hoses or seals or causes any damage to the unit, the bypass valve is the component that activates this sequence if that valve is stuck it will just try to continue to create pressure which in turn puts load on the engine and stalls it...

That is why it starts up straight away and only when it builds up pressure is when the engine stalls.

You would be best taking this to a qualified pressure cleaner technician as there are alot of little parts and orings plus the the head will need cleaning up and the bypass valve lubed, they may not of seen this at the service as it is hard to test a unit without the suited hose and lance... Often use will help this problem when a unit sits for a period of time that will cause issues such as this!!!

SOURCE: I have a whirlpool WFW9600TW01 front load washer.

Hi dear.I may have solution for the SUD error.You can give it a go.But I do not know any thing about F35 one
The motor control unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If “Sud” is displayed a potential suds lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Potential Causes

• If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a
Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
• Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
• Check Wire Harness connections to the Drain Pump, Pressure Switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
• Check / Clean Drain Pump Filter of foreign objects
• Check Drain Pump
• Check the Pressure Switch
• Check CCU

Replace failed component.

As it says run couple of rine cycles it should get back to normal.I hope that helps you.Thanks.

Water coming through at trickle

Although you have not shared the make, model, and year, I will give it a try anyway.
Start by turning off the water at the faucets for the washer.
Then unhook the hose ( or both of them) and attach a garden hose to the faucet, and run the hose outside, or if that is not possible, run the hose to a sink or a shower or a tub, for the drain.
Turn on the water faucet and see if you get good pressure through the water hose.
If you do, then examine the black hoses from the faucets to the washer.
Often these have a tiny wire mesh filters inside the end or ends of them to filter the incoming water.
These can plug up with sediment, and you will need to clean them.
If they are clear, then examine the attachment on the back of the washer, where the hoses go.
These can also have tiny wire mesh filters inside, that can plug up with sediment.
Those screens can be removed and cleaned.
God bless your efforts.

My F09 and my E01 codes keep coming on in mid cycle and shutting down the cycle

F09/E01 are related codes.

LONG DRAIN: If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes without reaching reset level in pressure sensor, the valves are turned off and the drain pump will stop running. NOTE: Suds can cause delays in draining. Washer drains for 4 minutes, pauses 5 minutes, then tries again for 4 additional minutes of draining. F9E1 will display if washer does not drain. (Normal drain takes less than 2 minutes)

Possible Causes:
Verify that the drain hose is not blocked or kinked.
Make sure drain hose is not sealed into drain pipe.
Make sure the drain hose height does not exceed 96" (2.4 m).
Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
Check connections from tub to air trap, air trap to pressure hose, and pressure hose to pressure sensor.

Does not want to drain the water after washing circle


Start checking the drain hose at the back, and the hose attached to the drain pump, located at the bottom of the appliance. After that access the control panel and clean the hose attached to the pressure switch. Also check the lid is closing well. Those are the only easy fixes.

The first parts to check are door latch and drain system.

The timer performs an additional check on the door latch before advancing to spin. The door switch it is tested by jumping its contacts, or by reading impedance to check if the switch is opening and closing the circuit (you will need a multimeter).

About the drain system,
if the machine does not drain, then the cycle will not advance to spin.

The electronic control checks the input from pressure switch (which detects water level) before advancing to spin part of the cycle. If there is a drain problem, then the machine will not spin.

The first step will be accessing the drain pump.

Kenmore top loaders' washer pump is accessed from the bottom side of the appliance.
Get ready to collect the water that will come from inside the tub.

Check also the drain hose at the back. Ensure that the height of the hose elbow is respecting the specifications indicated in manual. A wrongly placed hose will result in water going in the washer drain pump and tub, causing drain problems and no spin.

If lid switch and drain lines are OK, replace the pressure switch, which is difficult to test (it is tested reading impedance with tub full and empty. Before replacing the switch, you can try cleaning it and blowing into the switch pipe. Check also motor before replacing the switch. The switch is connected to a long rubber hose and it is located in the control panel.

Below an article about the no spin problem. If the problem is coming with no drain, check drain filter, drain hose at the back. If they are OK, the pressure switch may need to be replaced or the pump may be defective.

Here the general troubleshooting for no spin: If you have no spin there may be different reasons behind the problem.

F35 pressure switch error. Can I temporarily jump out or bypass this switch so I can do laundry today(Sunday) before I buy the part on Monday?

The f35 error code is a pressure sensor failure. Make use you are only using he detergent. Check the drum the water should be drained out. Usually the complaint is when the washer is started it will lock the door and the drain pump will run. The display will display sud when it is running. Eventually it will display f 35 error code. To check the pressure sensor you will have to remove the top. The top is secured by three screws long the top of the back. With the screws removed slide the top back and lift it off. The pressure sensor is located on the top right side towards the back of the unit with a black hose attached. Remove the hose and blow into it to make sure it is clear. Check to make sure the electrical connections are fully seated. Now with the pressure hose disconnected start a cycle. If the washer works cancel the cycle. Reinstall the pressure hose and the top should work fine. If you still get the f 35 error code you will need to replace the pressure sensor. The part number for the pressure sensor is W10156252

I have a Maytag "MTW5870TWO" washer that discharges the drain water at a rate faster than a 2" drain line can handle. I have removed and cleaned the drain line trap, snaked out the entire drain line...

I have the exact same problem. My husband has been looking for a reducer.
I read on the internet somewhere today, that maytag washers, have their drain hoses attached too low, and the drain hose needs to be raised above the washer. A cup hook, and a shoe string did the trick. It seemed to help on the medium wash load setting, but started overflowing at the end of the large load setting. My floor is ruined because of this.
What I have read about Maytag washers, I think I will just call it quits with this, and buy a Kenmore.
If someone comes up with a reducer, I would love to know about it.

LD flashing



"Ld" flashes if it takes longer than 5 minutes to pump out water to a point where the operating pressure switch resets.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Usual causes are easy to check:
1. Unplug the washer and clean the pump strainer. It is located between the drum and the pump, and will be attached to the drum with a rubber hose.
2. Dump your drain hose into a bucket to remove any build-up in the drain hose. If possible, run an empty load, with the drain hose pointed outside.

Best regards, --W/D--
