Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a 2000 waverunner, it won't pull us out of the water without struggling, once we're on top of the water it's fine. We checked the intake for debris & cleaned the power valves. Any ideas?

SOURCE: whirlpool dishwasher drainage problem..

This sounds like a bad timer. The timer is what tells the pump to drain at specified times. If it gets a bad contact, that timed cycle won't happen.

PS: Do you know for sure that the drain is occurring in mid-cycle? If not, you may just have an obstruction in the drain and/or anti-siphon valve (where the hose connects under the dishwasher.

SOURCE: Waverunner bogs down on acceleration

Our 1996 waverunner has been running great until this weekend. It seems to bog down after 3 minutes of running at full speed. If you keep it at 3/4 speed no problem, it runs steady. Tried carb cleaner but it still runs the same....What repairs are we looking at. thanks.....

SOURCE: have a 2000 yamaha XL700 waverunner. Will not

If the waverunner has an electronic "key" lock, it could have gotten tripped. We had this problem happen in the past where everything was fine, then it was tipped over and quickly back up... suddenly it wouldn't start. Used the remote and unlocked it - then it started!

SOURCE: i have a 760 yamaha

Yes the water must have shorted the wires or the parts, very much possible.------- It turns over but does not start.Still re check battery voltage.If the battery voltage is low, its battery issue.If the battery voltage is low, then also engine will turn over, but due to low battery voltage it will not turn the starter.So first check battery voltage and battery connections and confirm, that its not battery issue.The battery voltage should be between 11.5 to 12.5 volts.If battery voltage checked ok and its connections are fine, then other possibility is faulty or weak starter.If the starter connection to battery is loose or starter solenoid is got jammed or shorted, then its the issue, and can cause the problem.With the key on and starter button pressed, there should be 12 volts at starter solenoid.But if there is no 12 volt, then it can be faulty starter switch or starter itself.If starter and its connections checked out ok, then other possibility is shorted ignition coil wire to the spark plugs.Check wire to the coil and wire going from coil to spark plugs.There is short in between causing the problem.If there is voltage issue checked.Get the compression test done for your bike.Compression on a 760 should be closer to 115/120.Pull the plugs , spray WD40 in each cylinder , turn the motor a few times and repeat 3 times , Let it sit for few hours, then do compression test.If the compression test fails, then its low spark issue.Get the spark plugs and coil pack checked and replaced.Also try starting with starter fluid.Spray starter fluid in intake and then try to start, if it starts, the problem is with fuel pump, and fuel filter related.Its not getting gas.------------ On one side bolted to the motor there is the voltage regulator, check that. This can stop the motor from giving a spark.
Unplug it and see if the connections are ok, sometimes moisture can reach the connections and cause a problem, also check all fuses.---------
This troubleshooting will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

1995 Yamaha Waverunner III dies won't run

Check cylinder compressions, this ski will overheat if one side is low. Thus is step one, if ok and within 10% of each other, verify the exhaust isn't clogged with sand from "beaching" third verify the crank seals are not leaning the Mix causing an overheat. Obviously check the impeller housing to exhaust line isnt clogged, disconnecting the thermal sensor is asking for a top end rebuild which is about 500.00 they are designed to reduce revs and alternate spark to the cylinders once 200 degrees is reached.

2009 Yamaha vx cruiser waverunner used to do 55mph now won't pass 35 mph

Nevermind those other answers, if its running on all 4the cylinders but just real sluggish and missing top speed then listen up, let's first rule out the possibility of a damaged impeller, now locate your airfilter box and remove the filter, just throw it away because last I checked dirt really doesn't settle on top of water, now locate your throttle body and remove the intake tube from it, now take out the 4 bolts that hold it on and find your flame arrestor element. I've dealt with this problem many times only to find out that the geniuses at Yamaha had installed this screen right after the butterfly which accumulates airfilter material and clogs

My 1992 yamaha waverunner iii 650 is taking on water?

I know this sounds obvious, but make sure the plugs are screwed in.
usually 2 of them at the back of the waverunner.
i know i forgot to put them in one day and by the time i parked the truck & trailer it took on so much water the motor was half submerged.
Hurried and pull the truck back and got it out and let her drain iout the plugs, then fired it up.

anyhow, if thats not it then your hull must be cracked and leaking in, take seat off at the ramp and see if you can see where its coming from, if you don't notice anything, then its coming in through
the ports at the top of the wave runner under the steering assembley housing, those tubes are made to direct the water to the bottom, if you have an auto matic bilge pump, make sure that is working or it won't pump out the water like it is supposed to.
hope that helps

I have a waverunner (1996) and left it in the water over weekend. The engine bay filled up with water, not as high as spark plugs or air intake. Do I try and start as normal?

It will probably be OK but if unsure pull the plugs out and spin the engine over, this will show if water has entered.
Do this with the kill button off so the ignition wont be damaged

Strong vibration 2004 yamaha xlt waverunner

Something was stuck to the intake obstructing flow.
When you shut it off it drifted away.
It is a good practive when in weedy or heavy debree areas to get clear shut the motor off count to 30 then restart and gradualy excelerate to make sure it is clear. used this method for ten years now and seems to work well for me.
