SOURCE: No pressure in the pressure washer

Leaving the hose on shouldn't cause a problem so don't panic. It sounds like you could just have a dirty nozzle. Try sticking a pin or something in the end of the nozzle (machine not running) and giving it a clear out. also if it is a two peice gun, split it and tap the squirting part on something clean like a workbench to clear any debris that might have got in there.

SOURCE: pressure washer has no pressure

Try and back flush the washer..Take spay nozzle off washer and back flush with hose...If any kind of sand or deposits get into the Pump it will hold pressure valve open not letting it build pressure.after back flushing hook back up washer and before you put spar nozzle back on or start washer turn water on and make sure all air is out of washer..hook spray nozzle back up and hold it open with washer still off.when you see that there is no more air coming out of washer start it and you should have pressure.Hope this helps you and have a great day!!

SOURCE: pressure washer not working

OK here is the solution. There are six plastic vaules inside the pump if you have any mechanical skills you can fix this.
These plastic valves melt when you leave your pressure washer running for a short period when you are not pressure washing. once this happens the pump becomes cloged and does not function. I spent alot of time and research on finding the parts for replacement. I called the main company of this washer pump and here is the toll free number
800-999-2245 and the web sight www.pressureparts.com but to save time just call and talk to the service tech tell him you model number and he will give you the part number.
I only paid $13.75 plus shipping around $5.50 I do not work or have any intrest in this comapny but I tell you after all the frustration and run around I had trying to fix this Home depot power washer I deesided to help eveyone else out
I can be reached at atidavid@aol.com if you have any other questions

I was able to use soap all last season, this year, i cannot get it to come thru, i know all about the low pressure deal, it seems to be clogged/ is there any way to specifically clean it where it enters...


Soap injectors are easily clogged or will not work because of design (air leaks will prevent chem from entering if chemical has to be drawn uphill) . They work with siphon action and will only work with very little pressure at the tip but good volume. If your siphon valve has the ball in place, however is missing the fine spring that holds the ball against seat (fine spring holds ball aginst intake fitting), the soap will not be sucked into stream. If ball and spring are in place, try elevating the soap container higher than the opening of the port (gravity feed may help to feed soap into system) . May be better to use an aftermarket downstream injector valve sold on ebay or many outlets. Cost about $20 but work better and are adjustable to save on soap. Search ebay for "Chemical Injector For Pressure Washers" or google "Pressure Washer Downstream Chemical Injectors" Various prices but lower price units work better than factory. Good luck

Won't stay running


Pressure washer when you first try to start them that stop underload. We had the same type of problem with 11 hp Honda if you hold the trigger open the motor will be under less load we found by running the motor for about a minute it would work normally. Remember to make sure the water hose is turned on pull the trigger on, until water is coming out of the wand , now try and start the motor but also hold the trigger open, now you will not be building maximum pressure, after about a minute release the trigger and see if it keeps running.

The screen on my washer is saying the code LD i dont have a manual and it wont drain completly. I took my clothes out and they were completly soaked with water. HELP! :D


The LD fault code indicates that the washer took longer than 5 minutes to pump out the water and reset the water level pressure switch. You should be able to press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

Check you drain hose for kinks or clogs. You could have a clog or failure in the drain pump that is causing this problem

When the washer turns on, the agitator begins to operate. However, the water does not enter. The hose and screens are clear and i even replaced the inlet valve, but still no water.


There is a pressure switch (load size switch) that senses the pressure of the water in the tub. This switch has a small rubber hose attached to it that runs down into a connector on the outer tub of your washer.

More than likely this hose and or the connector that it goes into at the tub may be stopped up or clogged with trash. You will need to locate this hose and connector and clean it out. (depending on what brand machine you have there are different ways to access this)

You may also be able to take the hose off at the switch (behind the backspash of your machine) and blow through it.

It is also possible that you have a bad pressure switch but this is unlikely. It is more common to have a trash/gunk build up in the hose and or connector.

I'm not getting enough pressure though my hose, its just misting


Hi TG,

Check the filter screen on the hose connector, it may be clogged.

Other than that Air in the lines causes the same symptoms. Then it stops once the water gets there.

If the screen in clogged. the water doesn't get there, at least not quick enough for a steady stream.


Best of luck and best regards,
Mike

Mike, water supply is important. Make shure your running a 3/4" dia. supply hose to the pressure washer. The longer the supply hose is the less the water supply pressure is so keep as short as possible. Hopefully your hose hookup is running 3/4" pipe to it. It sounds like you've been diligent in checking everything. I hope this was helpful. Jeff

Powermate pressure washer Model PW0872400


pressure washers has this pressure switches where in as you press on the trigger, the washer works and if you release it, the pressure would build up high and it would trip this switch to turn off the motor or deflect the water to the by pass hose ( if the motor is not stopping) then as you press again the trigger, water should come out of the gun again but would not,

i have encountered the problem is in the pressure switch, even the pressure went down, sometimes it wont close the contact then the motor wont run ,

if the motor is continously running, then the trigger switch is the problem, the pressure excerted on the switch is so high that even if you press it , it won't open up to release the water.

what i can suggest is to tie the trigger in the gun so that it is always pressed and then just unplug the unit if you want to stop using it. it is an inconvenience but it will work.

or, open the gun and see if you can figure out why pressing the trigger would not open the switch.

another option is you can lower the pressure of the washer if it has an adjustable pessure controller. by lowering the pressure might open the switch when ever you press the trigger.

i hopw i was able to fix...

good luck,
