Question about Garden
It's a simple 2 arm set up that spins freely when the pressure washer is not hooked up, but I can hear a little metal on metal contact. Took it apart. Not much to it. Arms attach to a brass sleeve that slips over and spins a round a side port nozzle. The side port nozzle has two nylon or Teflon split rings (seals?) above and below the side ports. I was looking for something to grease. Maybe these rings are just worn out? Any ideas?
I agree, the teflon rings appear to br the only things that wear (aside from the hole size which could wear from water abrasion, but unlikely). That would explain the metal to metal sound you hear at times because the seals prevent wobbling.

I purchased this unit a year ago and the spinner didn't last the season. The nylon bushings are the weak spot of the design. Researching I've found that they were originally made by Homelite; mine has the EZ Clean brand but also found the same design at Ryobi, Briggs & Stratton and now Generac ... As Homelite ended 10 years ago, the parts are no longer available and none of the others sell any of the parts. I just bought a new one from Generac and see that the design has changed so that there is now a proper bearing in the unit but the photos on-line and videos show the exact design of my EZ Clean as shown in the photo above. As it sits presently, the answer is to buy a new unit.
That means that there are literally thousands of units out there with minimal use that no longer function. The Bushings are quite easy to replace but they are not available anywhere. Maybe someone reading this has the ability to build and sell these bushings. Here are the specs. 1/8' wide x 3/8' ID and 11/16" OD There is sideways thrust so the sides of the bushings take the 'heat', get grooved and quit allowing the spinning effect so the tougher the material the better. The bushing ring has a sloped cut in it to allow it to be fit onto the solid end piece. If nobody steps up, maybe I'll do this...

Unscrew the two cleaning tips from the rotating arm with a seven-sixteenths wrench. Take a safety pin and clean out the tip openings from the inside. There is likely some small build up in the tips that is preventing the high-pressure water from getting out. You should be able to blow through the tips when cleaned.

I couldn't get my EZ Cleaner working for anything. The washing tubes wouldn't rotate whatsoever. I read where there is a filter in the connecting tip, and that it needs to be cleaned. I removed the filter with a screw driver and washed it in warm soapy water, and my EZ Cleaner is working good as new!

SOURCE: I have a 2600 Troy bilt pressure washer.When I start the pressure washer,no water comes out the nozzle and the nozzle is not clogged either.I took the nozzle/gun off and there still was'nt any wat
If when you take the High Pressure water hose off the pressure washer pump no water will come out they you may simple have the bypass valve stuck. You may need to just remove the outlet fitting and clean the bypass valve.
It would be helpful to know the model number of the pressure washer or the pump.
