It sounds like an air lock. Try this: With the machine off, connect the hose to the washer and let it run for several minutes to get all of the air out of the hose, and to purge any air out of the pump. Shut off the water, and connect the high pressure hose, but not the gun. Let the water run for several minutes. stretch out the HP hose and make sure that the air is displaced. Shut off the water, connect the gun, and purge as before. Now crank it washer up. As quickly as safe to do so, open the trigger to keep water moving through the washer. It should come up on pressure very quickly. It is better during normal operation to keep water moving through the system. When I am through for a while, I shut down my washer, but leave the trigger depressed to allow the pump to stay full of water, and cool. This prevents further problems when I restart it.
Hope this was useful.

SOURCE: pressure washer not working
sketchy info here....
Remove the hose and gun to see if water is flowing....
if it is that means there is no blockage in the hose or gun. When its connected if it runs at the same rate as without the hose and you have set it into pressure clean mode, then the pressure valve and seal have collapsed. Estimated repair cost is $200 and about $100 of that is labor. It is not a DIY unless you know your way around and have the right tools. Having it repaired professionally gives you 3 months warranty as well. Do it yourself and you could end up losing some of the small screws and other nylon components that tend to drop out and get lost when you open it up!

Testimonial: "Very quick reply,very informative,very helpful. Thank you."
When you run the unit and shut if off, release the pressure from the spray wand before trying to restart the engine. This built up pressure will cause it to be very hard to start as you have found out. If it does not start on the second pull release the pressure again. Another option is do do what I did on mine. I simply put a pull tie on the handle so I can pull the trigger back and use the pull tie to hold the trigger open. Make sure if you do this, that you remove the high pressure orifice from the end of the wand before attempting to start the engine. Otherwise the pressure will come on abruptly and could injure you or do property damage.

When the trigger is pushed, the engine is supposed to rev up to increase the pressure. So from the description, is sounds like the idle speed is simply set to low and it dies. So just set the idle speed higher. You could set it as high as pulling the trigger does if you want, but that would waste gas.
