I need a diagram for hotpoint WLW 1500B, leaking from under machine.


if it is a small tube (1/4 " ) it will be the pressure tube from the tub to the water level controller unit up top
it is what is used to move the pressure from the rising water as the tub fills up to the controller against the set spring tension , that when exceeded turns the water off and moves the program on to wash

ON the side of the outer tub unit there is a small plastic/rubber hose that goes up to the level switch behind the panel. This sometime fills with water or blocks or is cracked and leaks out air. The purpose of this tube is to hold a pressure in it which increases as the water flows into the tub. This increase in pressure works against a spring tension which you adjust by selection the desired water level. As the water rises the air trapped in the tube reaches a point where the pressure overcomes the setting and allows the switch to turn off the water and move the machine on to the next cycle. Now if all that is working and the machine starts agitating and the water is still coming in then the fault will be in the water inlet solenoid valve . It will have a cracked diaphragm or dirt and will have to be replaced Probably why the machine works when you bash it.

When i switch on the power of my karcher K2.38 power washer, the motor runs but there does not appear to be any increase in pressure, which means that it is ineffective when it comes to cleaning the patio/...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly/
First off, remove the water supply hose from the power washer and locate the in line filter. Most of them are a plastic screen stuffed into the plumbing just behind the hose washer. Others have a short stand off and the filter / screen may be where the stand off attaches to the pressure washer. Others units have in in line sump that usually has a blue or red cap that you remove to clean the sump. Find the filtering mechanism(s) and clean it.
After doing this... attach the water hose loose to the power washer and turn on the water supply hose. Wait for all of the air to purge from the water supply hose. Then tighten the water supply hose. After that... Squeeze the wand trigger until all the air purges out of the high pressure hose and you get a solid stream of water with the unit off. Once you get a solid stream of water with the unit off... power the unit up and see if the high pressure hose becomes rigid / charges with high pressure. Next.... cycle the wand trigger 1 second on... and then wait for the hose to charge again. Do this multiple times. What your doing is forcing the un-loader / relief valve to stroke in the pump. Until the un-loader valve stokes un-restricted; you will have pressure problems. Next after the hose is fully charged... cycle the wand trigger very rapidly until you get high pressure each time you cycle the wand trigger. At this point your done and can proceed with patio cleaning.

Should this NOT resolve your problem.... get as much water out if it as you possibly can and pour a few ounces of engine oil into the water inlet. (Easier said than done... but you have to get oil into the pump and then let it sit over night. once you have oil in the pump pull the recoil 2 times with the ignition off just to force oil through the pump)
The next day you go through the same routine as stated above. This brings about 80% of the stubborn ones back to life again. Should it still be fussy after doing all of the above... you will have to replace the unload-er valve. If you removed the un-loader valve for any reason... you must clean out the pump housing and lubricate it and the un-loader valve with white grease (<-Available at any automotive parts source) BEFORE reinserting either the old one or a replacement un-loader valve. If you attempt to use the old one with lubrication.. make sure to remove any debris from the springs and wipe the seals clean with a PAPER towel before lubrication.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I bought a new Blue Max Gasoline pressure washer and when I started it up I have very little water pressure. Are there any comprehensive instructions manuals then what were supplied with unit? Thanks Ron


You can download the manual here: http://www.farmprotractors.com/hdcmanuals/PW2200-03435.pdf

It is probably the same manual that came with the unit.

As far as pressure... hook up the water supply hose and turn on the water supply. Let the supply hose purge all of the air out. Then turn off the water and connect the high pressure hose. After that turn the water supply on again with the engine off and squeeze the wand trigger. Make sure all of the air is out of the high pressure hose. Then start the unit...
Once the engine has stabilized rapidly squeeze and let go of the wand trigger several times. Your exersizing the bypass / unloader valve spring. By this time you should have good pressure. If you have owned the unit less than 90 days and your sure you have a warranty issue use this link to contact the company:

Some of these units have a sliding assy on the wand that slides toward the ouput nozzle for adding soap / chemicals. If the slide is not pulled back toward trhe wand and locked into place you will not have any pressure either.

It appears from reading the manual that this particular unhit had 2 different nozzles. One for chemicals and one for high pressure. Plese make sure you have the high pressure nozzle installed. The BLACK nozzle is for chemical use. (page 5 of manual link above)

The red, yellow or white nozzles are all for high pressure with different spray patterns.

This is about the best I can do for you Ron. Hope it was helpful.

Power Washer has no pressure, any ideas


1. If you have an inlet chemical injection valve make sure that the hose is intact and that the valve is closed.
2. Purge all air from the line by holding the nozzle actuation lever open until all air has been purged. When you connect the water supply hose turn it on before connecting the high pressure hose and let the unit self purge to the pump outlet high pressure hose fitting. Then connect the high pressure hose.
3. You could have a stuck spring and ball inside the high pressure head of the pump. You can tip the unit on its' side and add a substantial amount of WD-40 to the water supply hose fitting in an attempt to free the springs and balls.
4. Try BRIEFLY running the unit without the hose connected to see if there is high pressure water ejected from the high pressure fitting.
5. Inlet water screen at hose connection is clogged (hose screen and rubber) Check screen for debris.
6. The water strainer is clogged. (Almost looks like an LPG regulator just after but in line of the supply hose connection to the pump)

Order of troubleshooting

1, 2, 5, 6, 4, then 3.

Thanks for using FixYa!

My 1995 Taurus is losing a substantial amount of power steering fluid regularly. The leak appears to be coming directly from the unit/resevoir. There appears to be two lines. How can I narrow fdown where...


If there are 2 lines only one will be "high pressure" that one most likely is the leak. Try to clean it off where you think its leaking, with "brake cleaner", have someone turn the steering wheel all the way to one side and hold it there, that makes the pressure high and the leak should be obvious.

Saeco Via Venezia leaks water from front top overhang.


That is not normal, this tells me that the pump has too much pressure that it is forcing water through the brew unit, or the expansion valve(if your model has one was not set properly). Is there a high pitch noise when the pump is running. If yes then it is the expansion, if no then the springs and the valve pins in the brew valve(small white plastic piece behind the brew unit) needs to be replaced.

No hot water


if the leak is behind the handle take the handle off and tightn the packing nut, do not over tighten, as far as luke warm water is this with just one facucet on, they way these tankless water heaters work they are by gpm, gallons per min, if you have more gallons of water going thru the unit then it is designed for then it won't get hot, if your water pressure is to high going thru it will push it to fast thru the unit and won't get hot, your house pressure should be no higher then 75lbs no lower then 65lbs

Water leaking out slightly from detergent dispenser draw and is starting to rust down left hand front side of machine,checked all water supply and drain hoses but leak appears to be coming from high up...


Your water pressure may be a liitle too high for the machine to handle. Try turning the water valves for the hot and cold water down a bit to reduce the pressure and try it again.
