Hi, I work in the italian factory of Karcher. In my opinion the problem is caused by the breaking of the collector. This is a black component of plastic where is inserted the detergent suction valve and the safety valve. To replace this component you have to go in a repair center Karcher.
You need to check the setting of the unloader. If you've replaced it with a new one it probably didn't come preadjusted to 1700 psi.

Water pressure? I read somewhere that low pressure of the incoming water will make it so that the items on the top drawer will not be as clean. I don't see how this can be the case, as I thought that the way the washer worked was that the washer filled (at whatever speed) and then the machine itself pumped the water through the system at the appropriate pressure. Please clarify.
