I have a Karcher 550M pressure washer and was using today when all of a sudden the water started to pour through the handle hence lost the pressure of the water. Is this a rubber washer issue or the gun needs replacing or simpler than that. To be honest although I have had the washer for about 3/4 years now It is hardly used. Also can I fix it and where would I purchase the allen key to replace. Thanks Brian

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?
