Question about Garden
Trash in, worn or damaged inlet and outlet valves are one possibility. Unloader valve stuck open or badly worn would also cause low pressure. Wrong spray nozzle size is another. Is the nozzle the right size for your pump?
Is water leaking from under the pump? That would show worn high pressure seals.

You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to
pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to
be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good
start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems
and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your
fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can
caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is
bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will
compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet
Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.

It sounds like the (RMW 2.2 G24) pump has gone out. Mine had this problem after about 6 hours of use. I was able to order a new pump for around $160.00, and then installed it myself. Go figure it was just out of warranty. I think my next pressure washer will be one with a professional pump as I was told the one on my husky is only rated for about 40 hours of use.

Dont use your mouth youll get poisoned, soap will only come out when there is high water flow, ex. with soaper tip (the one with the bigger hole) or no tip. When you have high pressure tip on it will not work.
