Water coming out of where the hose goes into the washer.
After I stopped for a moment and the went back to start it I had to release pressure to pull the cord to start. After putting the hose back on it would release water where the hose end goes in the machine.

On some pressure washers the engine will be hard to pull start if there is pressure in the hose. Release the pressure in the hose by squeezing the wand trigger, then try starting the engine. Also If you had it running and then stopped it, you need to release the hose pressure again to have an easy time of pull starting it. This is what I have to do with mine once the pump is primed and before starting it up. I hope it's as simple as this. If not it could be an engine problem of some sort.
If the washer is the kind that shuts off completely when the pistol grip is released, the problem is likely the little pressure sensor located near the output fitting (the threaded part to which the hose connects). The sensor is a little plunger held down against an opening in the side of the pipe by a spring when there is low or no pressure in the output pipe, as when the trigger is pulled and the pressurized water in the hose is released by pulling the trigger. That completes the electrical circuit and the washer is on and continues pumping water. When the trigger is released, water in the hose and output pipe jams up super high pressure, forcing tjhe little plunger out against the spring, and the electrical circuit is broken. If you take the case apart, you will see wires coming from that area. The fix (if this is the problem) is to free up the little plunger.
Turn water off to the pressure washer, release pressure by applying hand pressure to sprayer. After water pressure is released, turn water back on (should not have motor running without water.) then try to pull start.
This happens when air gets inside the hose. An air bubble of sorts is in the hose and will not build pressure until you blow the air out of the line. Start the pressure washer, turn on the water. pull the trigger on the gun. It will spitter and spatter and come to a trickle. release the trigger on the wand. Pull the trigger again and it will eventually work it self out.
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.
First. Turn off the water....Release all of the pressure off of the hose and pressure washer. Try and pull again. If it still won't pull check to see if there is oil in the engine. The engine may have locked up.
Hydraulic oil? Is this a pressure washer? Pump should be half full of SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil. Engine should have 10W30 motor oil.
If you have a pressure washer ... and not water is coming out end of gun: Take all hoses off machine. Look at incoming water hose connection. The should be a filter washer. Clean or replace filter washer. Hook up water and turn on water. Water should come out other side of pump. Turn on power washer and see if water coming out of pump is pressurized. Now hook up pressure hose without gun. Turn on pressure washer and see if water comes out of hose and is pressurized. Finally, the gun may be bad. We used to replace guns when they went bad.
It is probably air locked....Here's what you need to do. Connect the garden hose, and HP hose, but not the gun. Turn on the water, and let it run while you make sure that there are no high points in the garden hose that can trap air....Work the hose so that any air is displaced through the pressure washer. Continue in this manner through the HP hose. Shut off the water and connect the gun. Turn the hose back on, and operate the gun for several minutes, pulling the trigger and releasing. This alternately allows the water pressure to build up on house pressure and then to depressure, pulling residual air from the system. Release the trigger, and start the machine. Usually, this is enough to get full washing pressure. If it is very difficult to start, you can hold the trigger down on the gun and pull the start cord at the same time. Holding the trigger down acts as an unloader, making the starting easier.
