Hi and welcome to Fixya. Your model has the A14527 Pump assy on it and they are notorious for the pistons leaking due to blow by and the 16 MM seal on the piston starts to leak near the drive shaft.
In addition the O-rings #2950 that mated the piston housing leak. Add to that the 4 o-rings that mate the pressure head to the pump also leak.
See this manual:
There are a BUNCH of parts in this pump. One mistake and it will not work when you get done working on it. Be careful what you disassemble.
The seals that leak are items 4, 15 and 16 in the manual.
There can be other leaks.. the ones I pointed out are the most common.
Thanks for using FixYa.

That engine requires a separate gas and oil. There is an oil sump with oil level needle and cap on the side of the engine. This is where you fill it with special pressure washer pump oil available from any good outdoor store or place where pressure washers are sold. As for gas, Unleaded or Premium unleaded gas will work fine. Try not to use any fuel with ethanol blends however. Here is a list of oils that will give you an idea what to buy for the oil reservoir: http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fs%3Fie%3DUTF8%26ref%255F%3Dnb%255Fss%255Fgw%26field-keywords%3Dpressure%2520washer%2520pump%2520oil%26url%3Dsearch-alias%253Daps&tag=onlinetoolrev-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=390957

if the machine is running on suction, ie sucking out of a barrel there may be an air leak on the suction hose or pump. it will pull air easier than pulling water .
put the machine under mains water pressure, hose pipe straight from tap to pump.
check all around the pump and inlet pipes for leaks.
if water leaking this needs rectifiying for it to work on suction.
run the pressure washer while on mains pressure with the hose on, does this make a difference?
if not then probably the unloader is stuck in the pump head. remove unloader , clean and replace it
parts breakdowns are available on the internet for your machine.
possibly valves stuck, or the valve springs have broken, seen this quite few times on these machines. if so replace springs .
These sort of machines do not last very long anyway, about 50 hours use if your lucky.

check the water filter ---high pressurehose must have bbackpressure to develop pressure so disconecting it wont acheive ,much ,if you have agood water supply ,oil in the pump--- adjust pressure by srewing the brass fitting that the pressure hose attachesto, down that is clock wise a couple of turns or so and see if that makes a difference if not seals in the pumpmay be gone tha t should show by water in the oil
