I have a DPH3800 Dewalt pressure washer and the soaper isn't working properly. Right tip is being used but when trigger is not pressed it puts water into the bucket. When trigger is pressed it does **** some solution into the hose but very little and very slow. The valve is opened all the way. I know my former partner used bleach in the system which I read in the manual is a no no but it did work at the end of last season. Any ideas?

I have Karcher 520m and when you press the trigger you can hear what sounds like a relay engaging but there is no water pressure, then it will fire up and work, but next time you press the trigger the same thing happens, I have been using it on harvested water, but even connected to the mains it does the same thing. Its now got to the stage it doesnt want to work at all.


The issue you are having is with the unloader valve in the pump. Now with the 520m it is a little bit harder to repair than with more gasoline powered pressure washers but it can still be done. It would be easier if I could just send you a email of t ... Karcher 1750 Psi Elec Pressure Washer

I have a KARCHER Model K 2401 which onstart up has normal water pressure rather than the high. I can usually get it to work by removing the tip, pressing the trigger and running some water through without the tip on. The i replace tip and it will usually retain the high pressure. If I stop depressing the trigger I have to go through these same steps. It is like it loses prime. It works well once I get it started putting out the high pressure.

The hidden control panel has only about half the lights showing what function is pressed. A couple of days ago the washer would not start. The only function which would work was the far left sensor light. After trying to cut power and pushing other buttons, to no avail, we let the machine sit a couple days. It now works again with only half the lights on function pad working. It acts like there was a electrical short.
