Question about Washing Machines

I HAVE A WALTERS MODEL 81E PRESSURE WASHER. I FOLLOWED THE DIRECTIONS ON THE UNIT. IT SAYS TO START THE MACHIE WHILE HOLDING THE TRIGGER AND WAIT FOR WATER TO COME OUT BEFORE TURNING ON BURNER. I STARTED THE MACHINE AS DIRECTED AND WAITED 5 MINUTES AND NO WATER CAME OUT OF NOZZLE. I SHUT THE MACHINE DOWN AFRAID OF CAUSING DAMAGE. HOW LONG DOES IGT TAKE FOR WATER TO PUMP AFTER STASTED?

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Some problems that can occur with your top-loading washing machine are:

There's an error code on the digital display

It doesn't work at all
It won't drain
It doesn't spin
It doesn't agitate
It's noisy
It leaks
It's off balance
There's no hot water
There's no cold water
It's slow to fill
There's no water at all
The clothes are wet after spinning
The cycle doesn't advance
There's no delicate or regular spin or agitate
It's overfilling
It's underfilling
The water temperature is incorrect

Check that the water pipes are in place, if there is a valve or a tap check that is opened

While using our troy bilt 2550 preassure washer it cut out and I could not pull the start cord. After a while I could start it when the water was not connected however when I connect the water it will not...


Try connecting the water but hold open the trigger. While holding open the trigger, try to start the pressure washer. That works for me.

Troy-bilt presswasher that is running fine but has no pressure from the unit and any water that is flowing thru is very hot when the engine is running.


Hello,

Your machine is air locked. Air in the supply line reaches the pump and the pump cavitates, allowing very little water to get by. Since the pump is just chewing air, it is getting very hot, producing the result that you see.
With the engine off, turn on the supply water and allow it to flow through your washer. You may need to lock the trigger on the wand in the open position, or hold the trigger down while purging the supply line. Make sure that there are no kinks in the supply hose and that any loops in the hose are straightened out. Raise the hose above your waist and walk it the length of the hose to the washer, forcing any air pockets through the hose and through the machine. This entire process will take about 5 minutes or so.
Release the trigger, start the machine and get to work. If the machine doesn't put up enough full pressure when you crank it, try cranking it while holding the trigger open. Sometimes the overpressure valve sticks, and can prevent full pressure from being reached. Holding the trigger open bypasses this issue, but doesn't repair it.

Best regards, W/D--

If a washer not used for a few years would that cause any problems


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
The seals do have a tendancy to harden / dry out or... corrosion prevents the unloader bypass valve from moving / operating properly. I recommend you put a little oil (2 oz maybe...) through the unit on purpose via the inlet water connection. Then connect your water hose and force the oil though the unit with the air in the water supply hose while it purges. DO NOT turn the unit on until your sure the water supply hose has purged out all air. Then turn on the unit making sure that you cycle the wand trigger rapidly for a few minutes by cycling the trigger until the high pressure hose is not so rigid then let the high presure hose charge fully again. Cycle trigger wait, cycle trigger wait. 1 second bursts until you get full pressure. Then use normally. This usually wakes up pressure washers that have been resting :)

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Cant start the unit ,there is to much pressure on the pull chord when water is hooked up.


Trying to start a pressure washer with water supply on and gun trigger off will be a difficult task. It could be comparred to trying to start a lawn mower with the mower in tall grass. Place the mower on the drive or walkway and pulling the rope to start the engine is much easier. It is easy to start your pressure washer with no water in the system however there is a remote possibility that you could overheat the seals if you take too long to turn on the water. It is a little more difficult to start the washer with water supply on and someone holding the trigger to wand open. This will prevents pressure from building and making engine hard to start. You will not damage your washer if you start it with water supply off if you flood the pump and pressure hose with water first . Here is the procedure I use if i am working alone. I trun on the water to pump and open trigger to gun to allow water to flow into pump and pressure hose. Turn off water (leaving the water supply on will make it a little harder to pull starter). Start engine while holding trigger to gun open. When engine starts release gun causing unloader to activate circulating water in pump. Now turn on water and you are ready to work. If your system is under warranty however, I would advise to use the starting procedure outlined by mfg (hold open trigger to gun however). To get the longest life from unit try using it at say 75% of capacity or lower if your can and use max pressure on the tuffest jobs. Leaving your washer at full pressure for all jobs is like driving your car at 100 mph everywhere your go. Good luck.

Check the reset button on the GFCI plug to be sure it's in. Once you pull the trigger keep holding it for at least 10 seconds to let the water push the air out and then it should start running.

Wait for pressure after trigger is pulled


the pressure releif valve may be sticking. you will need to take it out, clean it, the put it back in. it should have a spring on it. make sure that the valve works smoothly in the bore.

No pressure HOSE IS BIG ENOUGH,NO KINKS, FILTER IS CLEAN. TOOK THE PUMP APART AND CHECKED ALL THE CHECKS, THEY WERE ALL OK.WHAT ELSE CAN I LOOK FOR? THE PUMP IS A KARCHER-MODEL G 1800 LB Thanks, Art


Brother Art,

Try this trick; it always works for me. Assemble the garden hose to the washer, install the HP hose, turn on the water. Now, make sure that there is no air trapped in the garden hose. Manipulate so as to direct any air trapped in the line to the washer. Connect the gun and continue to allow water to "free flow" for several minutes. Now, work the trigger, allowing the unit to rise to "house pressure, and then pull the trigger, dropping the pressure suddenly. This displaces any air hidden in the system. Do this several times, and start the washer up. If this doesn't get you up to pressure, repeat the above on an abbreviated scale, and hold the trigger on the gun down while you start the washer. This should do it.
Regards, --W/D--

Mi TM 2700 pressure washer has no pressure.


With the water on, to the washer and the unit running. Does the water come out at the same rate before the trigger as at does after the trigger (run test with spray nozzle removed). Its not impossible for unloader valve to be bad but it usually is a dependable component. Make sure the unit has the air purged from it properly before start-up, make sure there are no obstructions before the trigger, then the nozzle. The unloader valve just puts the pump into by-pass until the trigger is depressed.
