SOURCE: Karcher Pressure washer

don't know if this will help, but when I use mine, to start the pressure up I have to turn the nozzle to fine spray then turn it to the power spray and it works every time, shouldn't have to do this but I got it for nothing.

SOURCE: toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid

Hi bpmorr1,

It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.

If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )

Please rate this response and good luck, Phil

No water going in machine, filter is clear

i'm going to start at the beginning-disconnect water supply from machine-run each one into bucket or wash tub to make sure supply is good and strong-make sure the little screens in the machine water valve(this is where you connect the hoses) are clean-if they have had build up(rust-scale) and machine still doesn't fill you have a bad water valve-replacing it is relatively easy-cheers Denny

I have an LG Tromm WM2277HW front load washing machine that suddenly started leaking from the bottom of the machine. All hoses and drains are tight and the water is coming from underneath. Originally, it...

Escaping water alongside a nasty smell is often the cause of a blocked water pump or resivour the more washs you do the more the lint will build up & the more the lint builds up the more bloked it will become meening the more water that will escape.. this should be an easy fix but not for everyone.. 1st make sure you have disconected all the power supply then check any or all filters you may have after that you will need to look inside to find the water resivour this will be a plastic bottle shaped for your machine just looking at it you will be able to tell if it has a lint or limescale build up if so it will need removing & flushing out.. there may also be an extra filter at the bottom front of your machine if you open this some water will leak out & you will be able to see if you have a lint build up (this will also have the best of your nasty smell in it) the smell is an effect simular to doing a wash & leaving the cloths in the machine for a few days basicly the lint is submerged in water for long periods of time giving it that smell once cleaned out the smell will subside too

Hope this helps

No water in washer

If there is no rust build up where the hoses are connected to the washer, then the part that they are connected to is malfunctioning and must be changed

Hello Advisors, I need real help and information. I just got a new Maytag washer MVWC 300 VWO. What temperature can I expect in the maschine on the "hot-cycle"? My hot water heater and hot water supply...

The hot water should be as hot as the inlet temp water.
170degrees. There is no internal heater to increase the water temp.

Please check that the hot water supply valve is turned on.
Check the hot water inlet hose is not kinked.

Also - remove the hot water hose and make sure the shipping plug from the hose hookup was removed.

If the hot water supply is on, and there is verified hot water coming from the hose (into a bucket) it will be time for some warranty work - as your mixing valve solenoid (hot side) has failed.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Nothing happens

Remove the fill hoses from the back of the washer and check the inlet valve screens/filters for build up or blockage . If that doesn't work you may need to replace the inlet valve.

Hotpoint aquarious + flashing H 20 on display

H20 is indicating that you have no water coming in.
Check water is turned on,check hose(s) are not kinked, and finally check inlet valve.
If you are not sure if there is water to m/c, turn the tap off, disconnect the hose(s), and hold over sink and turn tap back on, water should come out, if it does not, then there is a prob with the supply.
Plz rate my solution.

Hi , my Karcher water blaster makes a horrible repetitive surging noise when its powered on but not when its actualy blasting. I suspect its the pump bypassing. Pressure is also down on what it used to...

Is there dribbling water coming out of the casing if you plug in the incoming hose but don't switch it on? This is usually the case. Either the seals have worn on the pistons (usually 3) or you have a cracked pump casing.

Got a karcher 410 water pressure passed down to me without directions need help working it

Fairly simple to opperate. Connect water supply hose. Connect wand hose. Plug in, turn on water supply and turn on. Then squeeze the wand handle to spray. With mine, there are times when the unit looses pressure, but if you leave it running, it seems to recover. Also note that you can turn the flare at the end of the wand for a soft stream versus pressure spray. I have had mixed results with the pull out clear tube that is supposed to siphon liquid soap into the mix.
