Leaving the hose on shouldn't cause a problem so don't panic. It sounds like you could just have a dirty nozzle. Try sticking a pin or something in the end of the nozzle (machine not running) and giving it a clear out. also if it is a two peice gun, split it and tap the squirting part on something clean like a workbench to clear any debris that might have got in there.

You need to start the unit and let it run for few minutes to get worm, make sure the water is fully open and the unit is fully cleaned. Push on the trigger on and off for few times not letting the unit shutdown, then start increasing the fuel mixture ¼ turn and push on the trigger again and see…this could be that the unit need service or the governor springs getting week if you got one on your unit…let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless

SOURCE: pressure washer not working
OK here is the solution. There are six plastic vaules inside the pump if you have any mechanical skills you can fix this.
These plastic valves melt when you leave your pressure washer running for a short period when you are not pressure washing. once this happens the pump becomes cloged and does not function. I spent alot of time and research on finding the parts for replacement. I called the main company of this washer pump and here is the toll free number
800-999-2245 and the web sight www.pressureparts.com but to save time just call and talk to the service tech tell him you model number and he will give you the part number.
I only paid $13.75 plus shipping around $5.50 I do not work or have any intrest in this comapny but I tell you after all the frustration and run around I had trying to fix this Home depot power washer I deesided to help eveyone else out
I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any other questions

Sounds like pump is not making pressure. Thats why you get flow, but no pressure.
If it sat for awhile, check shaft connection to pump. Sometimes the impeller or shaft will shear partially due to corrosion when stored. Seals on pump valves could be gone too. Get an exploded diagram, usually from owners manual, easily found for this model. Parts list should have "pump repair kit" with everything needed to bring it back to life.
You and a friend put it on the bench to work on it and save your back. The pumps are pretty easy to take apart and put back in working order.

You gave a very close solution yourself for the problem. But other leakages can cause such symtoms.Forexample a leaking head or a leaking chemical inlet. These can be caused because the spill valve (pressure control valve) is stuck. When this valve stucks it will leave a micro switch ON. So the machine keeps working with the gun closed. This will in turn creat internal pressure and damages the head, valves and chemical non-return and even damage outlet hose. So besides fixing the leakages you must check and service the spill valve. I often replace the spill valve. One must also checks if the micro switch is faulty. Now very important that what you mentioned that the machine cycles at one minute intervals, with trigger closed...this is most probably always the spill valve fault. If you open machine you see a place where there is a wire..this belongs to the micro switch...under you find the spill valve. Intake and suction valves may now also have a fault. Also there are systems with non-return valves at the machine outlet. You have to tackle by elimination. Fix the leakage..then tackle spill valve and micro switch.
