Three things are needed to make your engine run. 1) Fuel. Make sure you have fuel in the tank. You can also check flow through the fuel filter. 2) Oxygen. The carb (choke) should be working. I've never seen one fail in a Honda machine. and 3) Ignition (spark). Some models have a low oil shutoff which shorts out the magneto if the oil level gets too low. Also, check the spark plug. If it's questionable, replace it. You can take out the plug, hold it to the engine case with the lead attached, pull the pullcord, and should see a spark jump at the end of the plug. If it does not then you can rule out the fuel & air for now. The plug should also be wet from fuel. If it is not then you can rule out 2 and 3 for now.

Codes SUDS and F35 appear. unable to use washer.

This point to a pressure switch issue. If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch. With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions. If the fault codes return after diong this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch. Part number W10156252 (click image)


Hope helps.

Karcher pressure washer motor surging,then motor cuts out

You didn't say if this is a gas or electric machine. I will give suggestions for a gas model. These small engines have air and fuel filters. check both, as it sounds like its getting bad air/fuel mixture. Also try a new spark plug. If this is electric let me know, I'll new some more info.

Unable to control water level

Some water may have got into the pressure switch. Remove the pressure switch and see if you can shake any water out. Make sure the cables go back on the correct terminals. make sure the tub is empty when you refit the pressure switch, so no water is allowed to enter the pressure tube
