Hello your problem is with the inlet valve, It has debris or calcium blocking the valve open, Unfortunatley these valves are sealed and you are unable to clear the blockage, you should replace the inlet valve. Hope this helps. If you have any further question please feel free to comment. Mike

New pressure switch and still losing pressure when faucet and washer used at same time

That's a plumbing problem - a single half-inch pipe is probably supplying both the washer and the faucet. Ideally, a 3/4" pipe would run from the tank to a purchased or site-built manifold, and one half-inch pipe would run from that to the washer while another half-inch pipe ran to the faucet.

There just isn't enough flow through 1/2" pipe to give you full flow to both at the same time.

My washer fills and doesn't stop. I try to advance it to the spin cycle but none of the cycles work. I changed the lid switch because it wouldn't fill at all. Now it fills and nothing else. Tested...

The fill switch is bad. That's the only "safety" on the washer that will shut the water off after reaching desired depth. To test it, run your machine on the various water levels. For example, start out on the low setting. If the water doesn't shut off after the tub is half full, then it's the fill switch inside the unit next to the tub.

My Pressure washers runs for a few minutes and loses pressure then shuts off. What should i do?

Use a high quality carb cleaner poured directly into the gas tank and use a liberal (large) amount. Run the engine as long as you can with the choke on full or half full in order to get the carb cleaner into the carb. Then turn the engine off and let it sit for two or three days so that the carb cleaner can do its thing. While this is going on, why not do the below as well to improve water pressure.With the engine turned off, pour liquid TSP into the fresh water inlet until it comes out the other end at first just water that is already within the pump will come out but make sure you put enough TSP that it starts to come out the wand outlet. Then, let it sit for 48 hours and don't run it at all. This is how I fixed my no pressure problem owner of Honda 5.5 with Comet pressure washer pump

Washer filling with water when washer is not being used.

You have leaking solenoid water valves. You can shut off the faucets when unused to circumvent replacement of the solenoid valves, but the leakage is repaired by replacement of the valves. Hope this helps!

Brand new washer, 2 days old, but messed up on day one! It seems to get stuck in between cycles! Water half fills, then empties, and it will not go into the rinse cycle!

The washer is still under warranty. Call for warranty service which should be provided at no charge for a washer that is only 2 days old.

My duet fills with water overnight, empty or full. what is wrong?

Most likely the water mixing valve has gone bad. This is a device on the washer where the cold and hot water supply lines connect. Could be due to age, hard water deposits, or premature part failure. I've seen this happen more frequently with Chinese-made parts; ask your repair person if they can replace with a US-made valve, which costs about $4.00 more and is generally made with better quality materials. Well worth it given the service call will be $130.00 to $160.00.

When my washing mashine is not in use it fill up gradually over a

I believe there is a leaky valve that shuts the water on and off, Not the one on your house. Which you really should shut those off to. You would have to remove the top and back panel of the washer, remove the tub to be able to get to the pump and valve to replace valve or rubber washer.
If possible, you should shut house water valves off that go to the washer. They also have little rubber seals inside that can wear out and leak.

Leaking kohler faucet

Where the spout pivots on the main body, there are a couple of washers, you can replace these washers pretty easily by removing the handle and then the "cover" from the unit. The water has to be shut off before you do this. I would take this oppurtunity to replace all the washers.
