Hi.

The part where the hose is connected is the inlet valve, that part is often leaking when there is a fault. In that case it must be replaced.

Please give me complete model number, as printed on service plate.

I will post another message with part for the model in title.

Regards.

Don't know how to get detergent into the ultimate x pressure washer (1500psi)


To the right of the Brass fitting where your garden hose attaches there is a small round plastic cover piece, pull on that and it will pull out a clear tube with it which goes into any container containing your detergent, it will pull the detergent as you use the pressure washer. Push the tube back in after you are done using it. You can also buy a replacement detergent bottle for other pressure washers if you wanted to.

The water leaks from the back side of the washer just under the cold water hose (at the top of the washer). Their is a round plastic part with some open space in the part. When the washer goes to rinse...


that is the drum vent. there is a mushroom valve inside to prevent water from coming out.when it fails, water comes out of vent. the valve either needs to be replaced or cleaned and reinserted. the top cover will need to be removed to do this. remove 2 back bottom screws and slide top towards rear to remove.

I have a 1984 cadillac deville small plastic piece inline with heater core hoses leaking ..at back of air filter on top...what is this piece called?


probably your heater control valve. below is a replacement from autozone, but yours may look different. If it isn't the control valve, maybe it's a splice someone put in. The control valve is the only thing that comes stock in the heater hose.

Water is leaking out from under the front part of the machine (this is a top load machine). Doesn't matter whether use small or large fill. have checked hoses and drainage in back they are not leaking....

Shower spout


There is a threaded stem that passes through the spout and attaches to the white plastic diveter valve. If you are starting from scratch (everything apart), you can put it back together in this order:
1) Place the white plastic diverter inside the spout. the circular side with the black round washer should face the the wall side of the shower (mating up against the threads for the water pipe).
2) The stem can now be inserted from the top and into the notched section of the white plastic diverter valve. The threaded end of the stem shoud be outside of the spout (from the top side).
3) A round black washer fits over the threads. It should sit right where the threads end. Dont push it all the way on to the unthreaded portion of the stem.
4) Screw the threaded knob onto the threads.

Should be ready to install now. Including the spout itself, there are 5 parts and are configured in this order from top to bottom.
1) Female threaded knob (the knob for operating the spout)
2) Threaded stem (threads on top)
3) Round black washer
4) Spout
5) Whit plastic diverter valve.

Mine leaks when I turn on the shower, thus reducing shower pressure. I looks like a poor design to me. The stem is not a tight fit in the spout and this allows the diverter to "wobble". The washer on the diverter valve does not seat tightly and allows water to leak out the tub spout when showering. I would replace the spout.

Re: lg wm1812


There is a vent at the back of the machine near the top that is covered by a small round white plastic cross pattern. Inside of the machine there is a black flexible hose that attaches to the vent from the top of the outer tub. inside of the tub attachment point is supposed to be a light blue plastic valve that looks like an old style army helmet on a peg. The peg fits into a flange in the opening on the outer tub. If this valve is missing water will escape from the vent on the back of the machine. Another likely point of water leak is a loose inlet hose or missing washer on the inlet hose.
