Re: maytag washer model A9700
Most likely you have build up in your filter screens. (assuming you have the house water supply turned all of the way up). To solve the problem, turn your cold water valve off at the house and remove the hose between it and the washer. On the washer side you should see a screen where you just took the hose off. Is it clear? An old tooth brush or a small flat head screw driver should let you scrape out any build up. Alternate rinsing with water and scraping. If it is clear, some sets of hoses have the same screens on the ends of them. Make sure there are none on the hose or that they too are clean. If you still can't get a decent fill, you will probably need to replace the water valve as the rest of the internal system uses the same hoses for hot and cold.

If the boot seal was properly seated onto the outer tub lip, then you should focus on the water seal (#39 in the graphic - it should have come with the mounting stem kit) as the source of the leak. Extra care must be used when installing this over the agitator drive shaft - some recommend adding a lubricant (Maytag center seal grease works well) to the shaft before sliding the mounting stem (and water seal) down onto the agitator shaft. Also, check the two sealing surfaces where the top of the boot seal (#40) meets the bottom of the mounting stem (#30). Look for cracks, chips or any bits of debris. Anything that keeps those two surfaces from meeting perfectly will cause a leak. These repairs should go fairly smoothly, but leaking water seals and chipped boot seals can cause problems.
A "chattering" pressure washer pump can be caused by many things. You could have a bent or damaged inlet line, or the water supply might be too low. Fixing these is simple, but checking on the water supply is critical. Never let the water supply run low for any extended period of time. Other causes of a chattering pump include water that is too hot, you may have air in the pump system or a stuck float valve. A power washer pump that is vibrating, but not chattering could be the result of air in the system or debris stuck in the valves. Catching these pressure washer problems early and knowing what causes them will save you a trip to the repair shop, especially when it comes to the low-water issue.
Troubleshooting Low Nozzle Pressure
Low nozzle pressure is a common complaint generally caused by one of the following:
1. Plugged nozzle tip. 2. Inlet screen plugged. 3. Insufficient flow in gallons per minute (not pressure) to the pump. 4. Unloader valve stuck open due to debris lodged under the check valve ball. 5. Customer use of shutoff-type quick connectors. 6. Plugged hose.
Troubleshooting Pressure Washer Soap Injector
When a soap injector is not working properly, the problem is generally fairly easy to isolate. Check the following:
1. If you have interchangeable tips, make sure the Black, soap tip is installed. Soap injectors will not work when high pressure nozzles are installed. 2. Be sure that the soap injector valve is turned on, and turn selector valve to desired setting. 3. A piece of debris may be caught in the injector valve, injector ball valve, or orifice. Disassemble and clean the injector. 4. If you have an adjustable nozzle, be sure it is in the low pressure position(away from the gun) to draw soap.
Sorry but this forum does not supply manuals direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, with experience of addressing problems and helping for free on the web ;-0)
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
If you still have an issue the problem is going to be in the chemical valve on the pump, there are two different styles they have on this type of machine, look at the links below on directions on how to repair your chemical valve.
hello there, wow my dream p-up. nissan pathfinder 4x4, unfortunately i have to settle with my nissan navara truck. anyways, the possible problems would be the injectors and injection pump. injectors are really direct on the combustion chamber so everytime the engine runs it is severely exposed to very high temperatures. the nozzle tips are the ones very much abused. the injectors have 2 seals. the first one which hugs the body of the injectors which is usually made of hard copper and the 2nd is called the chamber washer which is a stainless steel type concaved washer which serves as the nozzle tip seal and heat nozzle tip heat dispenser. if the nozzle tip floats there is a tendency that the tips are flame red due to heat thus, diesel is boiling to the point of turning to vapors enough to push the remaining fuel back to the injection pump when you shut the engine. then the one way valves of the injection pump comes into play. the valves might be weak and due to the high pressure, fuel slowly creeps back into the pump body. hope this helps.
