Check to see if there's good water volume coming through the hoses attached to the washing machine. If there is, check to see if the screens inside the water-inlet valve are clean. (The water-inlet valve is the device on the washing machine that the fill hoses are attached to.) If they're clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you should completely replace the valve.

HLP 21E doesn't spin out enough

Its because the belt has deteriorated //loosened. It needs to be replaced. It's a simple job if you have the "REPAIR" manuel in which to explain the steps/manor to remove and replace the belt.. The portable is a different setup then the full size washer. A repair man will charge about $75.00 an hour (should not take more then 20 min but will still charge the hour) plus some charge travel time/gas. The part you can by on line for less then $10.00 (with s&h) where the repair man will charge at least 3 times that for the part (belt). Good luck finding a "REPAIR" manual.

Just bought the washer, hooked up but it doesn't work

If this is a new washer, please check on the manual and see if all the accessories are in place as mentioned in the booklet. Now connect the INLET and the DRAIN hose, check if the washer drum is locked as when it is transported. You can maunally turn and see if the drum is free.
Finally connect the plug to an outlet and switch on . Select a program and start, the water must start flowing into the washer. If not check the water pressure in the line.
Now the machine must work.

Sometimes does not spin enough to wring out water from clothes.

The spin cycle should be on a timer,and shouldn't be able to change how long it spins.The same timer that controls all the cycles of your washer.Your pump may be trying to go out,and isn't removing the water fast enough.This will keep water in the tub,and the normal spin cycle isn't long enough to let the pump get the job done.Another problem might be a clog in your drain hose.Another problem could be the drain hose is set to high above the pump,and the pump can't push it up that high (shouldn't be a problem if you are using the hose that came with the washer,and not extending it with another hose or something.)

Blue display gets hot and has faded

hi, it may have a dry solder joint you could find.
a new display can be bought from hotpoint for about £55 according to their website.
if your machine is less than a year old it's a guarantee job, if under 5 they fit the part free but charge for call out. a local engineer may give a better quote. it's a 5 minute job to replace.

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.

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.

Karcher pressure washer motor surging,then motor cuts out

You didn't say if this is a gas or electric machine. I will give suggestions for a gas model. These small engines have air and fuel filters. check both, as it sounds like its getting bad air/fuel mixture. Also try a new spark plug. If this is electric let me know, I'll new some more info.
