if its just a plug, remove it with an allen key and wrap a couple layers of teflon tape around it. That should stop, or at least slow down any leaks that are coming out of the threads.

SOURCE: How to put oil back into the Karcher water pump

You need to remove the pump and sit it brass side up before removing the bolts holding the brass to the aluminum part (you have to do it that way so the oil doesn't spill out.) CAUTION: there is some spring tension on the brass head.

Take the brass head off and set to the side on a rag or in a bucket. Dump out whatever oil is in the oil side, making sure not to drop the swash plate or bearing (the pieces sitting in the oil). Fill the oil end with aproximatly 4.5 ounces of Karcher pump oil, (or just 20w 50 weight non-detergent oil). Put the brass head back on and tighten bolts. Put the pump back on the machine.

If this helps please rate.

SOURCE: Hi My karcher k3.65 jubilee is leaking water when

Hi This could be just the water inlet channel broken or split. You will need to remove the yellow cover via the screws at the back of the unit and then connect the water hose to see where the leak is coming from. If the water comes from underneath the pump then you will need a replacement pump seal kit of which you can purchase on the Internet.

SOURCE: Karcher K2.26M water leak

I have the same Problem, the leak is from the seam of the Manifold housing. There is a small crack in the seam. A manufacturing defect.. A New Manifold Complete Replacement K2.26* Part # 97501760 is $61.03, about the half the price what I paid for this pressure washer at Walmart... :( If under 1 year old, and you can find a receipt,Karcher will replace the whole Pressure washer under warranty.

Hi i have a karcher k4.91 and it is lossing pressure and leaking from inside the casing..what would be the likely cause.. many thanks


This could be a problem in the pump, the seals may have been damaged if it is an older machine through age. You could check a local karcher supplier/dealer and they should be able to replace that for you. Another problem maybe that an inlet elbow could be loose and does not seal correctly so it may need replacing.

These solutions depend on what area inside the machine the water is leaking from.

Water pouring out from bottom of machine leading to loss of pressure


You will need to remove the main cover and see where the leak is coming from. Could well be either the water inlet or the main pump seals .

No high pressure


These pumps are notorious for seasonal problems.
Tip the unit to the point you can pour engine oil into the water inlet connection. What your attempting to do is free up the ball seats in the pump. They get corroded when they sit and lock in place. Adding the oil or a vast amount of WD 40 to the water inlet often does the trick for loosening up the seat balls and springs.
After you add the oil (3 - 4 ounces) or WD 40 to the water inlet line just slowly pull the engine through with the ignition switch off. As the water inlet cavitates add more oil.
Let it sit over night and then take a block of wood and a hammer and tap on the power head. Don't over do it and do it in such a manner your not going to shear off any bolts or break anything. But... be serious with the hammer and block of wood.
Then connect inlet water hose, the pressure hose and test the unit. You may want to purge the oil lubricant into a bucket before you start the engine.
Give it a try and see what happens.

Thanks for using FixYa,

I have electric Karcher 330. i did not use for a couple years. tried out today from storage, it seemed the water jet was not strong, so may be the pumper problem or I need to clean the inlet hose? thanks!


the problem is your water seals,
you need to change them,
over time it became dry rot.
have the pump service at the same point.
the springs in the valves can be rusty and brittle..

Water gushes out of the inside of my Karcher jet washer.


you can sometimes seal the water leak from the inside as I think your water inlet case has split
