I have had 3 Karcher pressure washers all experience the same problem and so have two of my neighbors. Our area has very hard water and it causes problems with the washer not bringing up the pressure when the trigger is pulled (or surges up and down) and the nozzles clogging, etc. The service repair facilities cannot tell me how to prevent this. Many attempts to contact Karcher for advice have been ignored. I have been thinking that perhaps running the engine for a few seconds with no hoses a

My Karcher K3.48M pressure washer remains in the low pressure mode even when I return the pressure nozzle to the high pressure position. How can this be corrected. The pump seems to build up the pressure because when I release the handle the pump motor stops. This is a fairly new pump which was purchased in the latter part of last year(2010). Could this have been caused by the detergent I have been using which is an automotive shampoo? Please help I love this washer and for the times that I u

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
