Power Washer Engine Locked Up

Hi,
My husband said there was oil in the power washer; however, afer my son powerwashed the deck, the engine locked and there was no oil in the engine.

Can a power washer with a locked engine be fixed. Do you have any recommendations?

Odds are the engine is not easily repairable. The cylinder and piston rings are probably scored and will have to be replaced as well as the connecting rod and crankshaft and piston itself. possibly the valves and cam as well. A teardown and inspection would be necessary to determine the extent of damage

I would suggest finding an similar engine of equivalent power and replace the engine. Harbor Freight ( Harbor Freight ) is one source for replacement engines, there are others.

Washer will not power on and lid is locked


Unplug it and wait a minute or two, the lid will release. Take out the clothes, plug it back in, put it in spin and close the lid. If it goes back to work, good. If not, check Repairclinic.com for repair clues.

Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer: no power door locked...


Check your washer plug, tighten connections, fuse, try another electric gadget on the wall mains to see if there is power there. If power solved here:

Depress the "end of cycle" button on your panel for 3 seconds, wait for 2 minutes, try the door. This is the child lock feature, do it again and it locks.

Control locked


I ended up unscrewing the top from the back, my husband pushed the drum slightly forward and I reached my hand down the side where the door locks and there is a plastic "thing" (almost like a tab) that you pull down and you can hear it click and my husband easily opened the door
