Likely not the hose, but do clean or replace.
Usually there is a bearing failing, or at least releasing its grease. Drum bearing is suspect.

Where is the throttle body located? How do we clean the throttle body?

Throttle body is located where the hose from the air filter box meets the engine. Big black hose. Remove this hose from the engine side and this will be the throttle body/plate assembly. If it is black/oily inside, clean with carb spray and a toothbrush to remove any dirt/deposits

How do I clean a not self clean ,quick press s506a , not self cleaning black and decker steam iron

Most steam irons can be cleaned deposits by emptying the water and replacing with white vinegar. Let it heat up and use the iron as normal - but on cloth rags instead of clothing. The vinegar breaks down and dissolves the mineral deposits inside that are responsible for sputtering and stains. You can reduce or even eliminate these deposits from forming by using distilled water instead of tap water in the iron - otherwise - run vinegar thru it when it starts acting up. The vinegar "trick" works great on coffee makers, too.

Hot Water Pressure from taps

Hard water deposits from the water heater in the supply lines to the faucets. Sounds like your water heater needs to be cleaned out -- not just drained of water. You need to get inside and clear out the deposits in the bottom of the tank. You also need to remove the hot water supply lines to your faucets and see of you can get the lines to run free from the deposits -AFTER you clean out the water heater. Remove the drain -put on a 3/4 in. ball valve for the drain and a hose bibb on that - you can hook up a 5/8 - or 3/4 inch hose to get the particles out of the drain of the water tank. You may have to blow back the water line, from the faucets, the hot water lines- to get the deposits out of the water lines. You also may have to blow out the faucets with the water line disconnected to clear the calcium out of the hot side of the faucet.

The machine leak water from inside, and it does not have pressure.

make sure everything is clean;the inlet screen etc. Take a flashlight and look inside were the hose connects and make sure nothing is inside.To do a simple test;connect the hose,turn on the water,and WITHOUT starting the pressure washer,squeeze the trigger on the gun;you should have a steady stream of water coming out,about the same as a kids water gun;like a super soaker;If not,then your problem is something is restricting the water inlet,or if the washer is old,mineral deposits inside a passage.If it does squirt out pretty good,then your washer is tired,or you used a cleaner that's NOT compatible with pressure washer seals,or maybe the unloader is stuck,and won't allow the washer to build pressure...........If it's getting a good supply of water,the only thing that builds pressure is the seals,and the unloader.Other than that,there is a small passage were the outlet is,and that could be restricted with mineral deposits,but I would take apart the hose and check for debris in the line,to be sure Hope this helps!!

WHITE RESIDUE ON BLACK SINK do I need to seal the sink? aor how do you clean it?

It is probably only calcium deposits from hard water. 'Lime Away' will remove such deposits easily.
Black may be beautiful in the showroom or on people but not very practical for household stuff; we will never buy black kitchen appliances again.

Hardly any steam comes out...hose is getting pretty hot...How do I clean it out..Iv'e had it for a while.

Soak the nozzle in white vinegar for 10-15 minutes. Dip it into plain water to rinse the vinegar out. The deposits in the nozzles will be melted away.

Dishwasher leaving the remains of dish washing liquid all over dishes nothing is getting clean

Is water also standing in the bottom like it isn't getting pumped out? If so, probably the drain system is plugged and everything below the lower spray arm needs to disassembled to the deck--noting the position of each piece as they are removed. Look for food plugging holes in the deck and any obviously damaged parts. Clean the large screen in vinegar and hot water--let soak for a while to remove water and food deposits. Check the drain hose from end to end looking for kinks or other restrictions. Make sure the pump mechanism at the bottom turns freely. Check both spray arms for plugged spray holes or split seams. Reassemble in reverse order. Run a cycle without dishes to clean further--make sure the water drains out at the end. Listen for proper water movement while running. Open the door to inspect progress several times.

We keep getting holes in our clothes when we use this washer

For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
5. Replace the inlet screens.
6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
7. Turn on water supply valves.
8. re-try.

Slow water run for cold water

slow water run could be caused by the filter on the cold water hose is clogged by granite or mineral deposits
1. turn off the water to the cold hose
2. drain water out of hose and detach from washer
3. get a water spray bottle and set to strong stream not spray,
spray the filter that goes into the machine, this should clean out the debris that is clogging the line hold a small container to catch water when you spray if you see black specks it granite
4. after it runs clear reattach hose and turn the cold water back on that should solve your problem, it did the trick for me
