Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a Karcher B202 Plus pressure washer but for some reason i am noit getting any pressure coming through the hose. Only when i hold the hose end which is connected to the water inlet pipe and apply pressure inwards, there is pressure, but upon releasing it the pressure totally disappears. Why is this, please advise if possible

K5? which pipe is that..let's assume you have pressure to the back of the unit, yes? then you have a valve sticking or something obstructing the channels inside that unit..

does this work regardless of temperature setting.

Hi vks1,

Your water is coming out into the washer even when you water supply is switched off at the pipe?

Disconnect the washer hose from the water pipe and see if the water still comes out of the water pipe even when the water valve is shut off!
If the answer is YES!

This is a plumbing malfunction.
The valve on your water pipe is not closing completely!
There is a washer in the water valve attached to the end of the valve stem that more than likely needs replacement.

And not a washer malfunction.


If I understand your explanation correctly this is the cause.

If this is not the problem then the washer has a water inlet that is stuck open.

But this dose not make sense if the external water valve is shut off there should not be water reaching the washer inlet faulty or not!

I believe I figured out the problem for you and you will be fine when the valve is fixed or the valve stem replaced!
Bless You,

Inside the connector is a flat washer and a mesh filter. one side of the mesh filter has a strip/bar across it, this filter goes into the base of the connector with the strip/bar upwards, make sure it is seated in the connector properly.

Then fit the flat washer ensuring that it is clean/undamaged and lying flat at the base of the connector, the mesh filter strip/bar has at either end a small lip, the washer goes underneath the two lips, if it is placed on top of these lips it leaks!

99% positive on this, if not buy another hose!

My pressure washer has lost pressure and has water coming out of a small outlet i assume to be a pressude release device;can this be fixed or replaced ?


that's probably the unloader valve all it might need is a quick dissasle to see whats gumming up the works , as all I was able to find for sale for that model here was a new gun and the soap injector for about sixty bucks each , you might have to look around in the Uk for one as that's were there most popular

Have a brand new karcher 3000 pressure washer with a honda gc190 motor. Fired it up today, ran about 5 minutes then died. Noticed that gas was coming out of a hose that is attached to the bottom of of...


It sounds like the carborator has a drain ****, with a hose attached so it doesn't get gas all over everything. The reason to do this is to drain condensate once in a while. See if you can find a small drain valve and check to see if it is closed. Then add some more gas and wash away!

I can use my Karcher K3 jet wash as long as i hold trigger down


Most pressure washers have ball lock type fittings on the hose connections. What happens is the little steel balls get a bit of corrosion and do not lock the male fitting properly with the female coupling. Load up the fitting with some Oil or WD 40. Then connect and disconnect the fitting several times to losen up the balls and springs. Should the spring in the coupling break you will get the exact symptom your describing.

If the OIL / WD 40 does not do the trick then you may have to change out the quick disconnect coupling.

Cant change the high pressure hose on a Karcher


On the Kärcher, you have a bayonet mount at the base of the tip end of the pistol grip. This is where you attach different types of nozzles and gadgets after having removed the existing sprayer tube. Just push in and turn a quarter of a turn, then you pull it off the pistol grip. The hose is possible to remove from the machine as well, an ordinary threaded mount but since you need the pistol grip to regulate on/off this is probably not what you want to do. If the telescopic wand is made by Kärcher it should be very easy to snap it into place just like when you removed the sprayer tube/nozzle. If the attachment was made to fit Alto washers there is an inexpensive adapter that works very well. Good luck!

There is no power when you use the sprayer Karcher K2.89


Depends on the model, but it is probably the pump, Most Karchers do not use expensive pumps. Also, if the end of your hose is off, you won't get much pressure either as it takes a restriction in the end of the hose to increase the pressure. I have commercial pressure washing business & occasionally have an hose end come off, pump problem or high pressure switch problem, but all this stuff can be fixed. Hope this helps you, Rick
