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

I really appreciate the help and the information I have read so far. My Karcher K2400HH runs like heck until you release the trigger. Then, if I take the quick-connect nozzle off, pull the trigger and shoot a stream of water, I can then put the nozzle back on and it runs like heck again UNTIL I release the trigger. Then, it is the same process each time I release the trigger. Kind of frustrating.

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 Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti


I doubt that it has anything to do with the capacitor on the motor. i think you are having a problem with the actual Motor Drive circuitry. What is happening is when you close the switch, this tells the Motor to "Ramp Up" to pump the water out, what ... Craftsman Pressure Washers

We have a Karcher G2500VH pressure washer. If you start the engine with the trigger pulled on the spray wand it will run at full pressure until you release the trigger. after that, when you pull the trigger it will not have any more pressure than the water hose feeding it. Does it have an internal unloader valve? What is the part number?


Hi, Karcher calls the unloader valve a spill valve, this is a link to a full drawing/parts listing , and your fault description might well be a sticking /seized unloader(spill ) valve hope this helps ... Karcher 2500 PSI Pressure Washer

I just purchased a Simpson Megashot V3000 Pressure Washer and noticed the engine would stop running every time I released the wand trigger. Also, water was constantly spraying out of a valve underneath the unit - I assume it's some type of pressure release valve but there is no mention of it in the owners manual. I am thinking about returning it to Costco for a refund.

My maytag quiet series fills with water and then starts for 5 seconds then stops. This happens 4 times and then the entire system just stops. To help troubleshoot I used a screw driver to trigger the closed door so that I could leave the door open when the cycle starts and the pumps seems to be working and water sprays all over the place. I also took apart the impellar blade to make sure there was nothing jammed and everything is clean. Maytag MDB7500AWW

I have a HD 2701 DR pressure washer that starts and runs fine and usually works fine the "first" time but if you let go of the trigger and then try to use it again you just get a trickle out of the end of the wand. Usually if you hold the thing open for a while it will kick in (sometimes it takes forever...). Any ideas? It sounds like some of the "unloader valve" problems are similar but I do not see an "unloader valve" in the parts lists for the 2701...

I have a KitchenAid Sculptura dishwasher and it have been leaving food particles on the dishes. I started to take it apart, removing the bottom spray arm. I can see a lot of old food underneath.

This problem is intermitten. Kenmore 665 16765690. starting the dishwasher, I hear a motor running. I think it is trying to empty water, however there isn't any water. I will turn the time rotor around to the start again. Sometimes, when I do this the motor running sound has stopped and I hear gurgling sound of water entering. Once this happens, the cycle is good and does well. However, there are times, rotation the timer back to the beginning may take several times, up to about 20 times.

Model IGV 659.1 Dishwasher When switched on the 'time display' takes longer than 2 minutes to display the planned wash duration. The display works fine to set a delayed start. After cycling the start delay round to 0, or after RESET (buttons A and C pressed) the unit is then 'nudged' into displaying a time. After, at last, a time is displayed the unit works fine.
