... McCulloch FH140A Electric Pressure Washer

I have an electric power washer k3.99M. I just replaced the pressure hose and now the washer will not turn on. If I remove the unit from the water hose, it works, but when I hook everything back up, it doesn't.

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020.

I have a Northstar pressure washer powered by a honda GC160 engine. The last time i used it, water leaks from the bottom of the unit, whether it is running or not. When running, the pressure is fine.
