Sounds like bad seals. But first take the hose off and see if water comes out the outlet without the hose there.

My washer has a problem with the water coming thru. The washer starts but when it's time for the water to add in the beginning it runs for about 5 seconds then shuts of while the time is till running


To check the water valve, first cut the water off and remove the hoses off the back of the washer. Then one at a time point the hoses inside the washer tub and turn the water back on. If you don't have good water pressure, turn the water back off and remove the strainer that should be in one end of the hose. Inspect the strainer to see if it is stopped up, clean it and reinstall it. Now repeat this test. If you have good water pressure now, reinstall hose and your problem is fixed.

Water pump runs constantly but no water pressure or water comes out of hose.


Lots of possibilities. Inlet filter might be clogged. I once had a lizard crawl into a water feed line, totally blocked the feed. Check valves might be stuck closed. Discharge hose might be plugged. Pump might be trashed ( if it is a vertical engine it is probably a throw away pump) Nozzle might be plugged.
Disconnect the hose at the discharge and turn on the water supply. It should have a stream of water even without the motor running. That will check the inlet filter, feed pipe and check valves.

Engine overheating i have replaced the radiator has plenty of water


replace thermostat.then bleed coolant system, this is how you do it.fill the cooling coolant system with 50 / 50 dexcool and water to raise boiling point,straight water will evaporate boil away cause engine to overheat catch fire thats why you need 50 / 50 mixture antifreeze and water.to bleed coolant system first fill coolant system until coolant stay at the full cold mark on the the coolant overflow jug,then you start engine allow it to idle,place the heater and ac control in any ac setting except max and the temperature control to the highest setting,run engine until lower hose to water pump is hot. with the engine hot run the engine speed up to 3000 rpm and allow it return to idle, repeat this 5 times. slowly open the bleed valve on the thermostat housing or look for bleed valve at the water pump heater hose.open bleed valve for 15 seconds to expel any trapped air.then top off the coolant as necessary,and when top radiator hose hot thermostat open up.keep adding cooling to overflow until coolant level stop at full cold mark dont over fill coolant.if engine seem like overheating while looking at cooling gauge turn off engine wait a while until cool off add more coolant until coolant level stay stable and dont drop any.when open radiator overflow cap use large rag over the radiator cap to keep from getting scald open radiator cap a little at a time but dont open radiator cap until engine cool down first.replace the radiator overflow cap, thermostat,and engine coolant temperature sensor and check the cooling fans fuses and relays see what happens.

We have a new honda gx390 pressure drain cleaner with bertolini pump we can not get max pressure to the hose can you help


Assuming that you have a pressure gauge to determine actual system pressure. Without pressure gauge, you could use the sound of the engine as test for capacity pressure (if engine and pump are paired correctly, engine will labor at full throttle under high pressure). Using your machine at rated capacity will decrease the life of the unit. Better to use at 75 ~ 80 percent of cap. (2500psi on your unit). Pressure is developed thru the restriction of the tip/orifice assuming that the pump is working correctly. Tip should be correct for the capacity of the pump. Check the pump capacity for gpm (or test by removing tip connect water supply, then with engine running, catch water in bucket for exactly one min. and measure quantity). Example, 4 gallon per minuite should use a tip with 4gpm markings. If wrong tip size is used, (too large, low pressure, too small, pump will go into unload condition resulting in low pressure) . If thru testing you determin that the correct size tip is installed, suspect valves or unloader. Leaking valves or orings that seal valves will cause low pressure and also cause a pulsating sensation. Worn unloader will cause pressure to rise and fall in a slow cycle. Good luck with your repair

Husky ran great for couple of hours. Now no pressure at all. Water comes thru for suds, but no near enough. Engine runs fine but will not build pressure. Checked for trash blockage-all clear. Thanks,...


Same old problem... water admitance valve sticking.

Remove the valve spool and clean the bore with crocus cloth on a dowel rod.

Replace O rings and lube lightly with plumber's grease. Reassemble... good as new!

The valve senses pressure and blocks further input water. It sticks in the high pressure position blocking water flow.

STARTS AND RUNS FINE BUT WHEN I START WASHING IT QUITS SPRAYING AND THEN BUILDS PRESSURE AND KILLS ENGINE


The reason it stops spraying might be a clogged gun, hose or nozzle-tip.
The reason for pressure buildup killing the engine might be a stuck unloader valve in the pump.

While you are checking each component of the "output" side, spray some penetrating lube into the "input" side of the pump (where the garden hose connects) and let it be working on the unloader valve.

Fix the spraying problem first:
Start at the nozzle and verify that it is open by using low-pressure air. Clean or replace as needed. Next check the hose (with nozzle and gun unhooked) and finally the gun/trigger mechanism.
All must be clear and open to perform correctly.

Next, pour a few ounces of power steering fluid (or similarly LIGHT oil) into the garden hose, attach it to the pump and turn on the water supply.

Leave the "output" hose, gun, etc. UNHOOKED and point the output port of the pump (where the high-pressure hose connects) towards a vacant, safe area.
Startup the engine and allow the oil in the garden hose to work its way thru. (About 1 -3 minutes of run-time.) Shut it down and attach the high-pressure hose.
Hope this solves the problem!
