I have a Ryobi 580030A pressure washer. It was running fine, but I noticed lots of gray ooze coming from the center of the pump cover. Any idea what it is and what is happening?

The water seals are leaking thus pushing water back past the oil seals into the crankcase and mixing with the oil resulting in the grey ooze.So a new pump kit will have to be installed and the oil replaced.

Looks like the rubber seals in the pump are getting too hot and starting to disintegrate , you should get it serviced soon

The pump is leaking some gray fluid


Gray fluid is usually indicative of old oil with water mixed into it. First you have to determine if the fluid is coming out of the motor or pressure pump. Then change the oil in that, or both, and then watch the condition of the oil when you use the washer. With new oil, it won't turn gray but will get a milky coloration to it. There shouldn't be any way for water to get into the motor oil short of the engine being sprayed directly with high pressure water. If water is getting into the pump oil you'll have to check the seals inside the pump.

Oil leaking from within body of washer after half hours use and after switching off.. Oil is clean.


This is noticed on the Karcher washer and does not need any attention unless you are having a large spill over or leak. The oil oozes out when the pressure washer works for some time and is a result of a pressure leak when the washer is used for sometime.
I had seen this happen on mine for sometime , checked on all sides for any damage but there was none. So ignored but cleaned off the leak and was not seen then.

Kenmore Elite HE3 - Washer stopped - door locked - did not drain and spin - Getting error message F02


  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer.
  3. The drain/filter/pump is right in front.
  4. You can see a diagram of the pump at http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Drain-Pump/1200164.
  5. First remove as much water from the washer as you can. Place a large towel under the pump - a lot of water will come out when you remove the filter cover cap.
  6. Remove the drain filter cover cap by turning the filter cover cap counterclockwise.
  7. Remove the filter and check the housing and pump impeller vanes for debris (see if you can move the pumps impeller by hand).
  8. Clean the cover cap gasket and the gaskets mating surface.
  9. Replace the filter and close the cover cap firmly.
  10. Run a short wash cycle and check for any leaks at the filter cover cap. If the error comes back, you may need to replace your drain pump.
  11. Replace the kick panel if none are found.

Have Ryobi 40cc 18", have


Release the chain brake and remove the bar and chain. Clean the side of the engine where the bar fits to, then start the engine and see if oil oozes out of the side port on the engine. If it does, then clean the small oil passages in the drive end of the bar that run out from the large holes to the chain groove on each edge. If the oil does not ooze out of the port, then the oil pump, oil line, or oil filter in the tank may need service. Many oil pumps utilize a plastic gear that takes drive from the crankshaft behind the clutch and are prone to stripping the teeth of the gear. Hope some of this helps!
