if you did not winterize it it might have froze up and busted I was given one years back that si what happened to it before I got it and luckily I was able to fix with some lock tight spread on a thin layer and clamped it tight for several days to cure out
Once again it's that time of year to get your pressure washer prepared for the cold months ahead. Proper winterization will protect your pump from the freezing of excess water in the pump over the winter. There are many ways to winterize your pump; we like to classify it as the good, better and best.<br />
Good: (Gasoline powered) Leaving your machine in the off position with the high pressure hose disconnected pull the recoil rope 4 to 5 times or until you don't see any more water coming out of the high pressure end of the pump. (Electric powered) Disconnect your high pressure hose, turn the machine on for 5 to 10 seconds or until you don't see any more water coming from the high pressure end of the pump.<br />
Better: If you have a air compressor around the house, hook the air line to the garden hose end of the pump and blow the water out until you don't see any more water coming out of the high pressure end of the pump.<br />
Best: Purchase Karcher's Pump Guard, follow the simple directions that come with the product. This product is specially formulated to keep your pump from freezing, corrosion, premature wear, adds lubricant to the valves and seals to prevent sticking in the spring. You can usually get 2 or 3 uses from one bottle of Karcher's Pump Guard. <br />

if it is the same as a 2002 UK spec then the washer pump is situated at the bottom of the washer bottle. the washer bottle is situated behind the inner guard on the same side as the filler cap for the washer bottle. the pump is push fitted to the water bottle. if u have been using window washer additives then they can form a slime that stops the pump working. if that is the case then remove the pump and wash it under the warm tap to clean it out and refit. hope this helps oscargilpin
