If the washer is just clicking and not filling with water, I would look at faulty inlet valve solenoid(s). You can test them for continuity with an ohm meter or multimeter to see if they are faulty. If the resistance is zero ohms, the solenoid is stuck open and is defective. Here is what the valve assembly looks like. Hope this helped and best wishes.

I have a very hard time starting my 1998 mazda . The only way that it seems to start if I hold the gas down and try several times. Do you have any idea what it could be

TONS of things, but several questions come up? Does it spin over or just CLICK? Does it stutter and stammer like t wants to start but can't "catch"? When was your last tune up? (plugs, wires, filter changes, etc.) There are many, many things that prevent a car from starting, so a detailed account of the issue has to be stated in order to help you.

The problem is the starter solenoid. It will steadily get worse until it just won't start anymore. The solenoid has corrosion between the contacts. When you turn the key the contacts are not making connection. The corrosion will get a little worse each time you crank it.

Try the easiest things first.

1) jump start with your automobile

2) check to see if starter is free
a) *with your hand, turn the flywheel screen on top of the engine
b) connect the jumper wire to the cable post (positive or red cable)
connect the negative to the battery
*NOTE: many times the starter gear can become locked into the flywheel, and the battery is not able to overcome, and you will hear a click from the solenoid.

3) If #2 works, then replace the solenoid

Dead key all lights are ok carwont start no click click click

try starting it in neutral. sometimes the neutral safety switch thinks you are just outside of park (aka in reverse). this switch will not allow the car to start in any gear except park and neutral. also, try shifting firmly in and out of park several times. this may trip the switch. good luck

2005 chrysler Town&Country clicks when attempting to start

If the click is one click then that points to the starter. Make sure the battery connections are tight. If it clicks like a machine gun then it is either the battery or a bad connection. Good battery voltage is 12.6 or more and 13.6 when running. I don't know tour skill level of electricity.
