I accidentially sprayed water on the pressure washer motor and got it wet and the pressure washer stopped and won't start up. Will it start back up after things dry out or is the motor broke?

Yes it most likely will, BUT you need to dry OFF ALL electrical items well.
Check also that you haven't dislodged anything from the system.
If it still will not go, you may need to use WD40 or similar water displacer and spray all electrical things again, if it has "Points" then these too must be dried out.

Electric Pressure washer hums but does not work.


guess is that someone started it without water...and seized the piston. You can try spraying silicon spray into the water intake (lots of it) and then see if that frees the piston. You can start it for a moment without water after spraying silicon into the intake. The alternate ( not recommented) is to open the pump housing and spraying directly into the piston to free it up.... Good luck.

I bought a new 2600 psi pressure washer. It starts great. The pressure starts out fine. However, when I disengage the spray nozzle lever and then push it again there is along delay before I get any...


Hi. I think the problem may be called either vapor lock or cavitation, or it could be called something else, but the solution is to take the wand apart in the center and let the trapped water escape, then putting it back together before re-engaging the lever.

Why is it that my washer is not completing the spin cycle,it is still very wet when it stop??


Hello there and welcome to fixya
The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these: Motor coupler
To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:
If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.
If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.
Spin cycle
If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.
Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
Siphoning
If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valve
Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Pressure washer has no pressure


Try and back flush the washer..Take spay nozzle off washer and back flush with hose...If any kind of sand or deposits get into the Pump it will hold pressure valve open not letting it build pressure.after back flushing hook back up washer and before you put spar nozzle back on or start washer turn water on and make sure all air is out of washer..hook spray nozzle back up and hold it open with washer still off.when you see that there is no more air coming out of washer start it and you should have pressure.Hope this helps you and have a great day!!
