Is there a fairly simple way to straighten the coiled high pressure hose?

I have now also purchased a high-pressure drain and sewer cleaning kit but because of the tight coils of the hose it makes it very awkward to feed it down the drain. Has anyone found a way to straighten these hoses?

    To help clarify my problem (which must be EVERY Karcher pressure washer owners problem) is that the hose supplied is very tightly coiled. Its very stiff structure makes it nearly impossible to straighten it out. There must be other owners of this product who've worked out a way to do it.

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!!!

Regards
Brad:)

If you no longer have High Pressure coming out while machine is running, it's a pump issue.

I bought a 1984 Georgie Boy nmotorhome, but I do not know how to hook up the drains for the sewer or fresh water. There's a door marked sewer, but no pipe there to connect to. can you help?


The RV sewer system should end in a 3", 31/2" or 4" black plastic fitting that has 2 to 4 plastic tabs that a flexible hose will lock on with a twist. The fitting probably has a cap twisted on. After the sewer drain hose is connected to the RV drain, and secured in the sewer, a 'T' handled pull rod should open the gate valve. Most drain the black tank first, then use the grey water tank to flush the hose clean. If the 'T' handles aren't in your sewer compartment, you'll have to look under the bottom edge of the RV to find them.

How to fix drain hose on LG WM2487H M


The following are a number of things to check for the OE (drain error) indication.
If the washer does not drain then the drain pump may be clogged, damaged, or defective.
Sometimes, socks and other small articles of clothing can get into the drain system and clog the pump hose or the pump itself. Open the drain pump filter tray at the lower left of the machine and check whether it is clean, check also that the pump impeller spins freely. Remove the hoses from the pump and check for any obstructions.
First, check the drain hose to determine if it is kinked, twisted, or bent. If the drain hose is bent, straighten it out. In addition, remove the drain hose and check it for obstructions. If the drain hose has any obstructions, try to remove them. If necessary, replace the drain hose.
Check the machine's water level frequency by pressing the WASH/RINSE + DELAY WASH buttons simultaneously. Check the reading on the display, if it is below 260 (26 Khz) then have someone measure the resistance of the pump motor coil.
It should be between 10-20 Ohms resistance, if too high or too low, replace the pump assembly as it cannot be repaired.

My GE gfwh2400loww washer, the pump filter needs to be drained every 1 or 2 times a wash is done..otherwise water stays in, and when you drain it, it smells musty and horrible. I checked the manual,


You should not have to clean filter . Check your hose for clogs ,follow the hose all the way to where it drains into the sewer line. If your sewer line is very high up the pump may not be able to pump out all water efficiently. So some water will flow back down to the pump. If there is a clog up high, the clog will not allow draining. These pumps are strong ,but not that strong. Please let me know what you find. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

We purchased a kenmore high efficiency washing machine. after the second load, we get a sewer smell in the other part of the house.do you have any suggestions?


There may be a venting problem with the sewer lines. These machines expel water very fast and at higher pressures than other types of machines. This can cause suctioning of water from drain traps if there is improper or clogged venting of the sewer lines. Have the sewer lines checked by someone knowledgeable about proper venting practices.

Engine runs, but stopped pushing water


First I would start with the simple solutions.1. Check to see if your water pressure is good. 2. Check the pressure hose and tip for ubstructions. 3. Check the inet strainer and make sure you have no leaks. 4. Check the unloader valve which is located usually in the area of the pipe for your pressure hose connection. Remove and clean valve and port the valve sits in and lube with white lithium grease light coating. Try machine, if this doesn't work remove pump and inspect all the check valves and pump body for build up of gunk. If you find this you can clean with carburetor cleaner or you may have to purchase a rebuild kit. If you have problems finding the unloader valve go to jackssmallenginerepair.com and do a parts look up and you will see where this valve is. You can also purchase the rebuild kit on this site. Hope this helps.

Suddenly showing "HI" in room temp window. Cold then warm air blows out.


"Hi" means your compressor has gone off on a high temperature limit. Basically, your outdoor coil is dirty and needs to be cleaned or your outdoor fan has stopped working. An air conditioner works off a simple principle of removing heat using a low temperature and low pressure refrigerant. Your compressor does what it is called. It changes that low temperature, low pressure refrigerant into a high temperature and high pressure refrigerant. Your outdoor fan blows over that high pressure gas and it blows out hot air. First thing to check is to turn your unit on, and go outside and feel if you have any air blowing out the back. If you don't, you have a bad fan. If you do, you need to clean your coil. Spray some simple green on your outdoor coil and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then grab a hose and under low water pressure, wash out your coil from top to bottom pointing the hose in a downward direction. You do not want to point the hose straight into the unit. Make sure you disconnect the power and allow it a couple hours to dry before you plug it back in. If it's just a dirty coil, you should be good to go after that!!

My washer is not draining during the spin cycle


not draining your washer at all, pump may be bad or no power to pump, take the drain hose out of the "stand-pipe" where water enters the sewer drain, and lower to floor and see if water drains by gravity if only slowly your pump or hose may have a slug of crud in it blocking drainage to sewer pipe

Sink drain slow


You can purchase a device from Home Depot that will clean out the drain. In the plumbing business, we call it a blow bag. But some call it drain dog and so on. It's a black rubber bag that fills with water and then when it reaches a certain pressure it blocks the drain but runs water through it until the clog is dislodged. You attach it to a water hose and push it into the drain as far as you can get it. Run it for 15 to 20 min. and then pull it back out. There are several sizes to accomadate the pipe size. You sill need the one that does pipes up to 2 inches. You will have to remove your drain assymbly under the sink to do this. While you have the drain assymbly off, you can make sure it is clean as well. This will clean out the garbage that collects in the pipe. Hope this helps.

Installing a Washer in basement


The top of the drain pipe that the washing machine drains in to should be about 3 feet off the ground. If the sewer pipe is higher than that you can either get a longer hose, or drain it into a sump with a sump pump that pumps it into the sewer pipe. If you don't have a sump, first try the longer hose and make sure it drains to a point higher than the sewer pipe (that would be the easiest) or cut a hole in your floor and put in a sump and sump pump (the most difficult).
