Little pressure in washer - Whirlpool Dishwashers

Posted by on

  • marcusmartin Sep 08, 2009

    Yes, little pressure when the washer is running. My use&care guide, trouble shooting section, suggests checking the pump and spray arms for clogs. You also suggest checking the pump as well the screen. How is this done?

Do you mean that when it is running, the water doesn't splash around and wash the dishes?

You need to inspect the pump and the screen into it. Could be blocked by trash but suspect the impellor is worn out or busted.

I can't get the pressure washer to start up. The water is coming out of the hose, but there is no water pressure


If the washer is the kind that shuts off completely when the pistol grip is released, the problem is likely the little pressure sensor located near the output fitting (the threaded part to which the hose connects). The sensor is a little plunger held down against an opening in the side of the pipe by a spring when there is low or no pressure in the output pipe, as when the trigger is pulled and the pressurized water in the hose is released by pulling the trigger. That completes the electrical circuit and the washer is on and continues pumping water. When the trigger is released, water in the hose and output pipe jams up super high pressure, forcing tjhe little plunger out against the spring, and the electrical circuit is broken. If you take the case apart, you will see wires coming from that area. The fix (if this is the problem) is to free up the little plunger.

Pressure washer has lost pressure


Although this costs a little money, it covers most home gas/electric and industrial portable kerosine/diesel fired hot water pressure washers. Worth sharing...

When using the sweep nozzle (yellow tip), the pressure starts and stops but the machine works fine when using the circluar nozzle(red)


usually when the power washer pressure stops the machine is running out of water. the sweep function uses a little more water than the round wash tip. Make sure there are no leaks in the supply hose and that the supply faucet is turned on all the way and has plenty of "flow". also make sure the water connection at the washer is not leaking. use a new rubber washer to make a good seal on the supply hose on both ends. if either end leaks or can **** air, just a little bit of air into the pressure washer will cause it to loose pressure.

I have very little pressure, not much more than a garden hose


check pressure head, I am assuming your talking about a pressure washer... also a worn pressure tip will cause loss of pressure

Karcher pressure washer trigger problem


The wands that it will not run with would most likley have a little dirt in the tip of the nozzle. This would not allow the water to flow through in turn activating the pressure switch and shutting the machine down
