I have a McCulloch FH160B power washer and it no longer builds up pressure. I haven't used this very much at all. I tore it apart and cleaned everything I could find. When i pull the trigger for the spray nozzle, I get line water pressure. When I release the trigger, the power washer sounds like it starts to build up pressure. When this was working correctly, the pump would shut off when the trigger was released. Any suggestions?

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.


Sounds like the unloader is not working correctly. Try replacing it and see what happens. ... Briggs & Stratton Prosumer 20324 Gas Pressure Washer

Hi- I have a Simoniz S1600 pressure washer and usually when I first turn it on, the motor turns on to build up pressure. Now the motor won't kick in no matter what I do. Water still comes out of the gun as a small stream but there is no pressure. There are no reset buttons on the exterior of the machine. Thanks!

Hi my L G dish washer is coming up with E1 . It comes on after about 2 min it takes water into the washer then it hummes for about 30 seconds then comes up with E1 and pumps water back out. I have checked the hoses which don't appear to be leaking -I read somewhere in your answers about this problem that it could be the Water Level in Drum lowering, this means there is a leak on one of the pipes. More likely it is the Circulation Pump, which is responsible for pushing the water to the Spray

I have gas in the oil fill and oil coming out of the exhaust of my Ridgid pressure washer. I lent it to my father who isnt mechanical at all so anything could have happened while he was using it. He has since passed away so he cant tell me if he did anything wrong to it. Its a Ridgid with a Subaru SP170 OHC Engine. Any help would be appreciated. Scot


Check to see if the oil is overfilled first.If the oil is at a normal level, the engine was probably overheated or ran low on oil.It is also possible that the machine was tipped over and oil ran into the cylinder. ... Pressure Washers
