No pump action also water when turn on seems like it back up and comes out of water connection also no water out of wand. I start pressure washer and no loud pump noise and water still comes out of connection spray out. Its 4 yr old but only used about 8 times. Need help!
Sounds like nozzle is blocked.small bits of grit jam nozzle unscrew and make sure its clear turn water on and pull trigger to see if gun trigger works,then refit nozzle check again for spray.if clear start up and try out.if no go then pump probably needs cleaning and relubing seals.

Check filter is not blocked (if fitted) after draining water away by raising the washer and lowering the outlet end of the drain hose. The water should flow out into a bowl or bucket. If it does not there is probably an obstruction in the extractor pump or hose near the pump. Unplug the machine from the electrical supply, remove the back panel of the machine, and locate the extractor pump. Are there two electrical cables connected to the electrical connectors on the pump? No? Connect them (either way around) re-connect power cable and try to pump out the water make sure the machine is high enough to get a good sized bowl underneath. If cables are connected and pump does not operate, disconnect from the power supply and carefully release the clamp of the hose attached to the pump. Only allow a small amount of water to escape to start with (expect at least a couple of gallons to come out). Be ready to replace the hose if the bowl becomes near full. Watch out for objects coming out with the water that could have been stopping the pump from turning, e.g.coins, or nuts & bolts or my pet hate cotton-buds . When all the water is drained out carefully remove all the hose connectors, and hoses, from the pump. Check that there is nothing inside the pump that would stop it from turning. if you are sure that it is clear, check the other disconnected pipes for stray objects and then reconnect to the pump, tighten the hose clips, lower the machine to ground level. Leave the back off for now, reposition the extractor hose into the domestic drain pipe and re-connect to the power supply. Select a drain cycle (or rinse cycle) and switch on. Listen for the pump running and water being pumped away down the drain pipe. Working? check the hose connections for leaks. Fine? Replace the back panel and park the washing machine back to its proper place. Not working call an electrician/washer repair man as there is an electrical problem. Remember always check ALL pockets before washing any clothes.
Hydraulic oil? Is this a pressure washer? Pump should be half full of SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil. Engine should have 10W30 motor oil.
If you have a pressure washer ... and not water is coming out end of gun: Take all hoses off machine. Look at incoming water hose connection. The should be a filter washer. Clean or replace filter washer. Hook up water and turn on water. Water should come out other side of pump. Turn on power washer and see if water coming out of pump is pressurized. Now hook up pressure hose without gun. Turn on pressure washer and see if water comes out of hose and is pressurized. Finally, the gun may be bad. We used to replace guns when they went bad.
Good news, your engine runs But your pump may be bad
Here's how to test your pump Check oil as outlined lower down Disconnect the washer hose and gun Connect water hose and turn on water and water should pass straight through the pump Look for clogs in the hose-end where water hose connects to machine
Turn on machine and see if water shoots out pump If water shoots out of pump, but no water shoots out of gun, then you may have a 'mud-dobber' wasp clog in your washer line or gun
Look for clogs in the end of each water connection. Now connect washer hose without the gun, tun on the machine, and see if water shoots out of washer hose Finally, the gun trigger mechanism may be bad I don't know which gun you have ... but we replaced guns on our machine now-and-then ... google-search power washer guns for a replacement
Check your pump oil Pump oil is SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil Pump should be no more than 1/2 full of oil Use plastic hose to drain pump oil Do not turn machine on its side or turn machine over or engine oil will run into carburetor
1) Usually you want to squeeze the gun trigger to release backpressure on the pump so the engine will turn over easily. So hold the gun in one hand with water coming out of the gun while pulling cord.
2) The pull cord mechanism is connected to top of power washer with 3-4 bolts. Take off those bolts and see if you can unravel the problem. The mechanism is connected to a spring and the spring pulls the cord back in ... so it seems like the rope is in a bind or the pull mechanism is bad. We had to buy a replacement pull cord mechanism at one time for our power washer, but I forget exactly why it stopped working. We used the power washer two days a week for years. It's aggravating when it doesn't work.
1. Clogged drain line or water pump Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).
2. Water Pump If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.
If you lay the drain hose down into a bucket does water come out fairly quickly?
If so then it is not a blockage
You may have a coin or other small object in the pump which stops the impeller turning so no pumping action
Only solution is to check if the pump is free to turn either via the filter opening or taking the back panel off (Remove power before doing so ) and turning the pump by hand (there will be a fan blade on the end which is connected directly to the impeller.
If that will not turn very easily then you need to take off the hoses and check what is happening with the pump unit
check no foreign object stuck in pump impellor and that it turns freely. if that is ok then check continuity thro drain pump. if no muiltimeter, try connecting drain pump to mains direct to see it works
your pump is blocked or faulty a way to check is pull your washer out put your outlet hose to the ground placed either in a bucket or out the door if water comes out pump is faulty if it doesnt than its blocked were your outlet pipe goes into back panel is were your pump is make sure washer is switched off undo tip up undo clamp water will come floding out better of doing this outside if it comes out of pump than your pipe is blocked
