What is wrong with my pressure washer when I turn in on there is no pressure to the spray
Most probably, you left the pressure on when you used it last. You could also have let it with soap or chemical in the system.
When you finish using a pressure washer, you should, after switching off and removing water inlet...RELEASE THE PRESSURE. Before this you can, pass clear water to clean and clear any chemical or detergent. Now to get to the problem. If you do not release the pressure and do not clean from detergent.....this will result in jamming the SPILL VALVE. This valve controls the pressure and controls the shutting down of flow, after gun is closed. Myself I prefer to renew the Spill Valve, than to service it. Now to get to the spill valve....this requires professional work. But if you have the right tools, you can get to it very easy. Usually you can spot a Spill Valve, by noticing a micro switch, with wires protruding out....on top or near the spill valve.
Also beside the spill valve.....there could be something that have locked a valve open. Thus pressure never builds up. To check this, the machine needs to be dismantled altogether. In a few words, the machine can get fixed, but if what I mentioned is too difficult for you, you have to get professional help.
