To determine if your problem is due to an easily replaceable part, follow these steps:

1. Connect the water supply hose, the pressure hose, and the wand WITHOUT any nozzle tip.

2. Turn on the water supply, and press the trigger until water is smoothly running out of the nozzle
after any air is all purged out. Release the nozzle trigger.

3. Start the engine, and let it warm up for about 30 seconds.

4. With the engine running smoothly, press the nozzle trigger. The water should flow out of the nozzle (without the tip installed) at a faster rate, while the engine noticeably loads down as it used to do before your "no pressure" problem. If it does not load down, turn it OFF, and disconnect everything, and contact a Karcher repair facility.

5. If the engine does load down, release the trigger, and install one of the nozzle tips (not the black one).

6. Press the trigger, and the engine should load down, and you should have normal pressure from the wand. After you release the trigger and press it again, you will probably again have no pressure, and the engine will not load down. Removing the nozzle tip, pressing & releasing the trigger, and re-installing the tip should give you normal pressure again, but releasing the trigger will cause no pressure until you again remove the tip, press the trigger, and re-install the tip.

This is caused by a bad UNLOADER VALVE, which is located under a black cap with a metal button on it located on the top front of the pump. I don't know if you can purchase the replaceable parts from a Karcher repair shop, but when a neighbor & I took his washer to a repair place, it looked pretty simple to do this repair, and he was charged about $60 to replace about a $5 (maybe) part, and it took about 5 minutes.

What type of oil does ryobi honda 3100psi 2.5 pressure washer uses ?problem that Im having is machine starts ok but there is no pressure Do u think having no water pressure is cuz being low on oil ?


extremely unlikely
most problems can be attributed to a blocked nozzle that will not allow the pressure regulator to bring the pump to full pressure
The system works like so
the pump uses the tap pressure to generate high pressure ( make sure tap is on and no kinks in the hose)
the pressure generated is fed through the regulator to the nozzle via a hand control
When the control is activated the regulator shuts of the by pass system and full pressure is achieved to the nozzle
when the control is released the pressure regulator by passes the water back to the inlet side and so releases the pump under load
Now if the nozzle is blocked it becomes the control and there will be no pressure
If it is partially blocked the pressure still need no pressure to work so at partial blockage it will still by pass water back to the inlet

Cant pull start the pressure washer


Turn water off to the pressure washer, release pressure by applying hand pressure to sprayer. After water pressure is released, turn water back on (should not have motor running without water.) then try to pull start.

Pressure washer lost pressure in the middle of a job


The pressure valve has stuck in the high pressure position. This prevents anymore inflow and hence no further water will be pumped.

Rebuild the valve... There are O Rings to replace and clean the bore with croocus cloth. Lube the O rings with plumber's grease... good as new! 15 minute job. Get EXACT sized O rings for the unit.
