There are several possible causes of this problem. The three simplest to check are: 1. water supply is not sufficient, 2. water inlet strainer is clogged, 3. nozzle in the spray lance is partially blocked. After those, the most likely problems are internal and will probably require professional attention.

When water is running through system, the motor has to run to keep the pressure built up. So, if the water is leaking out, the motor think it needs to keep running to keep the pressure built up. The leak needs to be fixed to the motor will not run constantly.
