SOURCE: can get no water flowing to the spray nozzle

Most likly the sliding nozzle valve is not fully down or up. I have found after the nozzle lay about for some time they get stuck from water scale. It took two persons pulling and pushing on the valve to get my to operate again. It worked for me.

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?

Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.

Sears 2550 psi power washer does not have any water flow with the motor running, but has a low flow from the wand when the motor is off.

If this unit has set for that long has you have rust inthe end of the nozzle. take it of or undo the wane and soak it in CLR this will take the rust out. GOOD LUCK....

Water flows thru the pressure washer pump and out of wand, when I start the motor flow stops. I have a craftsman model # 580.752060 I've taken pump apart and there are no obstructions that I can...


Let the water run for a longer time. "Walk" the hoses, from the faucet to the pump and then to the nozzle, holding the hoses up to displace any trapped air in the lines through the pump and out the nozzle. What it sounds like is that air is reaching the pump. When it does, it cavitates, and no water can be pumped. Tighten all of your hose fittings securely. Try holding the trigger down while starting the washer. It may be easier with another person helping.
Best regards, --W/D--

I have the Troy-bilt 2550 psi pressure washer with a Briggs & Stratton engine (model# 020337). Originally, it would start and die immediately. I took the pump apart and cleaned out the unloader valve...

I would replace the internal part of the unloader valve, it is known as the unloader seat, I can order you one it would take 2-3 days, Part number is 193972 price is $45.06. If you are interested in ordering one send me a email at with the information that I just gave you.

Another thing that you can check is the outlet check valve, the tube that you screw your high pressure hose onto has a valve built into it, if that valve went bad or if there is something stuck in it you would also have this problem. If you take the tube off the valve will be right where you screw that pipe onto the pump, the valve is part number 190592, price on this is $8.16.

Continuos pumping

Continuos pumping is associated with waterlogged
pressurized system. To correct it, do this steps.
1. Put the power line off.
2. Drain all the water inside the pressure tank by
taking off the plug at the bottom. Then replace and
close the drain plug.
3. Open the priming port plug and fill it full with water.
Replace the priming port plug.
4. Close the flow control valve to regulate water output
5. Put the power back on, and start the pump.
6, Slowly open the flow control valve until the water
stabilizes at 20 or 30 psi at the pressure gage..
7. Set the pressure switch to stop at 40 psi and
start at 20 or 30 psi.
This will solve your problem.

My sku 509560 has begun to stop and then restart after 15 minutes or so? It them runs for 10 minutes and stops again. Is it fixable?

Yes, it can be fixed.Assuming that your water system is pressurized, take the following steps;
1. Shut the power off the lines going to the pump
2. Drain all the water inside the pressure tank by
opening the drain plug. After emptying the tank,
replace the drain plug.
3. Unscrew the priming port plug and fill it full with
water. And at the same time fully close the
flow control valve.
4. Put the power back on, and slowly open the
flow control valve until the water flow stabilize at
20 or 30 psi at the pressure gage. This could be
at 1/4 open or 1/3 open, depending on the water
supply at the suction point.
5. Check and set the pressure switch to be off
at 40 psi.
This will solve your problem.
