My craftsman 2150 psi power washer worked fine last fall, after the winter months, the motor is working fine but im getting no water pressure out of the hose. Its leaking at the inlet and outlet. Do I need a new pump? Anyone know where to purchase a pump if thats the problem.

Did you drain the pump in the fall? Cracked housing or blown gasket.

SOURCE: no water pressure

There is a injector valve in the water pump that is sticking. Remove this valve, grease the top o-ring and reinstall. Problem solved. Use pump guard in the future to prevent this problem from reoccuring.

Go to www.karcher.com ,click on your region and then click international. Enter the model of the machine or the type number . That is is the first 8 digits of the number under the barcode. This will take you to the parts listing for your machine.

SOURCE: Need to lower 1750 psi to 300 psi on my portable power washer.

Don't starve the inlet to the pump. It will detroy it.
Buy a pressure regulating valve and plumb it in line per the instructions. Do not use a relief valve because you will have to have a return line or you will heat the water up on the inlet side of the pump depending on how the pressure washer is set up. It should already have a safety relief valve. You might look and also find a pressure regulator that is adjustable and all you problems will be solved.

ps i could have fixed it myself with the right part, its not a hard job to strip it and rebuild it

SOURCE: Pressure Washer quit running

I have owned four of those units. Every one of them did what you are experiencing or just wouldn't give me any pressure after only a few uses. The company was certainly no help. I gave up after four and bought a heavier gas model from Lowes. Hope this info helps.

Stalling pressure washer


Make sure you have a strong water supply going into it. On the two I have owned, they would struggle and the motor would "rev up" quite a bit if there was even a slight kink in the supply hose, or if the tap wasn't opened all the way.

I have a k7.91 pressure washer the motor runs but stops or pulses


This sounds like a problem with the pressure sensor which is located on the water inlet side of the pump. This switches the power to the motor when there is sufficient inlet pressure and water flow. This pressure switch can get partially siezed up, and not operate correctly.

You will need to dismatle the unit and identify the pressure switch, dismantle it and lubricate it with silicone grease.

Craftsman Pressure washer will not spray


your not missing anything, check the pump, they tend to go bad over time and may need replacing. The pump provides the pressure as well as the suction for the whole process, pulling water from the hose or tank and pushing it forcefully through the pressure washer line. If the motor is running and you have the water going through the line and to the pump, and no water is coming out, my guess would be the pump.
