My 2001 chevy monte carlo keeps popping the power steering hose! I don't know whats wrong with it!


Wild guess, there is an internal power steering pump pressure relief valve that is stuck or not operating properly and the pressure is going way above the rated capacity of the hose. May need a new power steering pump. Who is changing your hose? Some chance the hose is not rated for the pressures being developed by the pump.

It won't stop washing, after a while the diital screen flashes "F3"


Hello Matthew, welcome to FixYa.

To address your post of the washer running a long time and eventually displaying an "F3"...they are directly related. These will not spin until they drain sufficiently.

The F3 indicates an issue with the drain, pump filter, or the pump itself. There is typically a drain filter in the pump as you may or may not know, based on your description it may be clogged. You'll need to access it, clean it out via draining it through the pump "emergency drain hose" before you can in the end open the door (though usually once drained to a safe level it will open under normal procedures) however there should be a door lock release on Asko built machines...including this series you posted
.

**This is the procedure for machines of the past 10yrs. or so...(this is only an example, it may not be exact but essentially the same as yours as well as most W600 or 6000 series)**

Hopefully this will help. Let me know if anything is unclear or If I can assist you going forward. Thank you for choosing FixYa and good luck going forward.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

When I switch the nozzle to high pressure the engine cuts off. Can you tell me what's wrong


Hi again and thanks for your response. If the engine is coming under an extreme load the unloader valve is stuck in place. Since the unloader valve is on the bottom of the pump it stays wet all the time and when in not in use the metal parts of the valve corrode as will the brass parts of the pump housing.
The unloader valve is on page B of this link: (Item A)
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/troybilt-0203370-2550-psi-pressure-washer-parts-c-26780_27006_25694.html

The following steps are hard to perform without causing havoc with your engine due to tipping so, what I am recommending is that you do NOT tip the engine to perform the following procedure without any dis-assembly of your unit at this time:
- IF you have a very short garden hose like the one that would go to a hose reel or a washing machine hose. Use that hose for this procedure over night. Connect the short hose reel or washer hose to the water supply connection of the pump and also connect the high pressure hose to the pump. Pour about 5 oz of regular engine oil into the water supply hose and tie the hose so that it is elevated (to retain oil in pump) Keep the high pressure hose elevated also so that the hose does not drain oil the oil you just added from the pump. After a few minutes with the engine ign. OFF pull the engine through 2 times. Let is sit over night. (What your trying to do is lubricate the seals and hopefully loosen the grip of any internal corrosion in the unloader valve area.)
The next day... after no more than 24 hours. Connect the short hose to a real water supply and start your pressure washer. once started do VERY short bursts with the wand trigger (1sec bursts rapidly). Your trying to force the unloader valve move and cycle normally in the pump housing. REMEMBER you added 5 oz of oil yesterday to the water system so be careful where you spray the first bit of stuff coming out of the wand nozzle. Keep up this 1 sec burst cycle going for 2 to 3 minutes or if begins to work normally your done and it is time to tidy up. .

If this did not work.... (it does about 85% of the time)
- You will have to remove the unloader valve and clean it.
Once removed try to get as much stuff off of the spring and o-rings as possible.
- Also you will need to clean the pump housing where the unloader valve installs.
- INSPECT all of the o-rings for cuts and again carefully wipe them clean so as not to damage them.
- BEFORE you reinstall the unloader valve you will need to lubricate the pump housing and the unloader valve with "White Grease" (Auto parts stores have small tubes of #105 white grease) Don't be afraid to use liberal amounts of white grease.
- Re-install the valve and test
This should bring your pressure washer back to normal again.

Let me know how things went.

I keep getting F21 and sd on my washer. I have cleaned out the drain hose which now drains well. I assume the drain problem is an internal problem. Anything else I can do or do I need a repairperson? I...


"F21" (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

Thanks for using FixYa !!

Hi could anyone help me please..My Hotpoint WMA52 keeps flooding


It is not draining properly, or overfilling due faulty pressure switch.
Try cleaning the filter first.
Remove lower rear cover of washer.
Remove large black hose onto bottom of drum.
Remove and clean filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for obstruction here and in the pump.
Hope this helps.

Maytag Quiet Series 300 won't drain all the way. I've checked the drain tubing and there is no blockage. Can someone help?


When you say you checked the drain hose, was top and bottom meaning did you pull out d/w. If you hadn't remove the bottom hose and check the bottom of the hose as well as outlets for the pump, clean out and run through cycle. If you had, then clean out the drain area in the tub of d/w. , should this not work, your pump is not working properly.

Bosch SHE45M Odor? What can I do


Make sure there are no leaks from the machine. look behind it and check the water inlet hose and connectors for any damage. Also look under the machine for any water as this may indicate a leak from the internal hose and pipe work and / or water pump. Also check that the outlet hose is completely clear of debris and soap scum build up and check that the filter is clean. Do this on a regular basis.

To keep the machine clean of waste build up and to keep any bad odours away
1. Remove all items from the washer.
2. Add 1/4 cup (60 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to tthe machine. DO NOT use more than 1/4 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
3. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
4. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C) if you have one or use a 60C wash. DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
5. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
6. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
7. Repeat the cleaning procedure as necessary.
