Clean it once with water then remove the filters and clean it a second time.
When we store our machines for an extender time we use mineral spirits, even better is to add a small amount of motor oil to the paint thinner ( mineral spirits) to keep the leather packings from drying out.
Even with doing you best job cleaning there is a good chance the inlet ball will stick when you start the machine up. To fix this problem tap the inlet with a hammer. Some machine have built in plungers to do this.

After you have flushed through with clean water, then clean the pump and gun filters bacuse simple flushing does not clean them, also you need to keep the filters clean to avoid pressure loss.. If you are not going to use the sprayer for more than a week, rinse it through with a 10% solution of pump protection fluid such as Graco's Pump Armour. This will help prevent the corrosion of the valves which can cause the balls to rust onto the seats. If you are going to spray solvent based materials you need to be more thorough with the cleaning as latex (or emulsion) paints will form a rubbery mess in contact with many solvents, so flush through with warm soapy water and then with the solvent for the material you are going to spray.

For latex you can just use water to clean the sprayer, just like with a brush or roller
