It sounds like your intake is plugged with debris. What usually happens is a water hose that has been laying around will get various stuff in it -- dirt, grass clippings, small insects (and whatever they take into it nest building). These days most homeowner pressure washers do not have a proper inlet filter, but just a screened hose washer like on a washing machine. The unloader valve can cause pressure variance, but usually not in the manner that you described. The pump is being "starved" for input water. Just use a pair of needle-nose pliers and pull out the screen and clean it or replace it.

Pressure variance is caused by the unloader/pressure regulator valve or slipping belt on belt drive systems. Worn packings in the unloader will not maintain pressure. Try lowering the pressure to 1000 psi then slowly increase until problem reveals then lower pressure again to maintain steady stream. This problem can also develop if the wrong size tip is used in the gun. Example, if output rating is 3000 psi at 4.5 gal per min and you are using a tip for 3000 psi at 4 gpm. The unloader will release causing variance of pressure. Easy way to lower pressure of system is to increase the size of the tip to 5 or 5.5 gpm in a system rated at 4.5 gpm. Enjoy

There is no adjustment but the clutch does have a bearing in it that rotates only when it is disengaged. This may be what you are hearing.

I have a Yellow Stone APW-150a pressure washer bought in 2005. The hose is cracked at the fitting that attaches to the washer. Can it be replaced or repaired?


Though I have never heard of Yellowstone appliances, I am pretty sure there is a way to get replacement parts from the company spare parts department or from other sources who sell these pressure washers. If not, try the Internet, or try the Speed shops where they sell these to people who pressure wash their cars/trucks. I am also sure there are other hoses not necessarily for the Yellowstone brand but fit perfectly well on them. Find out where they sell other brands and take your washer to them, ask them if they can sell you a hose with the right connectors to fit your washer. No salesperson can refuse to sell you a good bargain.

Pentair whisperflo 3/4 hp left running over an hour with no water


Sorry to have to tell you but you are going to have to either have your pump rebuilt or replaced. Sounds like you baked the plastic impeller and maybe did even more damage. These pumps require water in order to keep cool.
