SOURCE: How do you clean the unloader valve on a power washer pump?

The unloader valve usually is replaced. I dont know if you can get o-rings for it. But if you want to take it apart, there will be a crown or cap style nut just below the spring. Unscrew it completely and you will be able to remove the spool. There is just a series of o-rings on it.

You should put 'locktite' on the male thread and screw it in all the way and lock it there. That is how it works ,the spring keeps the valve at the bottom closed during high pressure operation. When the gun is released the part with the o-ring is forced down resulting in the valve opening and then the pressure is by-passed.Those dont normally give trouble. Look for a blocked nozzle or a restriction somewhere in your high pressure hose.

Hi:
Cleaning it is not enough. You need to make sure the o-rings are in good shape and grease it with a very very good waterproof grease. Here is a schematic of the pump. The unloader is parts 7 to 13 on D-2

Honda XR 2600 pressure washer, cord will not pull on engine


This is typically due to the unloader bypass valve not operating properly. You can remove and clean this valve or you may want to replace the valve with a new one.
If you take the high pressure hose off of the pump and with the water turned on you can start the engine each time then you probably should replace the unloader bypass valve.

Here is a link to the pump.

Pressure off and on every few seconds with my karcher 3000BH


hi there rjcomer2

here is web site for parts
http://www.ereplacementparts.com/karcher-2500-11944010-pressure-washer-parts-c-33388_33389_33973.html

sounds like you have a unloader valve problem or a crack in the pressure manifold housing between pressure outlet and unloader valve assy allowing unloader to cycle on/ off

or some dirt trapped in the unloader valve seat , make sure you have good supply of water - ie good flow from tap to pump

try cleaning unloader 1st and fitting in line tap filter

hope it helps

II lost High Pressure while washing I laid the gun down the time cut it off aand I reseted it and had no high pressure I removed the pressure adjuster and noticed it was rusted I cleaned it and replaced it...


The pressure adjuster you are talking about is actually your unloader which is a pressure relief valve. It is normal for this to pop up and down as it moves in and out of bypass mode. Your pressure issue could be a failed unloader, valves or packings in the pump. You will need to bypass your unloader valve to find if the issue lies in the pump or if it is simply a failed unloader. If you have any questions, need parts or service, please feel free to contact me using the information below.

Not sprayer engine stop


This is an indication that the unloader not working properly. When you release the trigger the unloader senses the increase in pressure and bypasses the water into the water inlet. When the unloader is not working and you release the trigger, the water pressure builds quickly and overcomes the power of the engine shutting it down. Here is the manual for your machine, http://www.pressurewashersdirect.com/manuals/Simpson_WaterBlaster%20manual_2.pdf

and some information about troubleshooting from the manual.
"Not Unloading. Leak in Gunvalve or Hose. Repair gun leak . Replace leaking or broken hoses. Debris or wear in Check Valve. Remove Check Valve parts and clean. Check O-Ring. Reface with emery cloth, or replace checkvalve. Damaged Piston U-Cup. Rebuild Unloader Valve (Service Center)."
Usually when the unloader fails the pressure regulator will most likely need to be replaced as the unloader is usually incorporated within. For now try lowering the pressure some and just tie the trigger open untill you can service. Good luck.
