Once your pressure washer and water source are turned OFF and you are unable to disconnect your hoses from the pump and gun it is generally due to the pressure that is still inside of the machine. To relieve this pressure simply squeeze the trigger to release any water and then try disconnecting hoses again.
Never start or run your pressure washer without water flowing through the pump. Running a pump when dry can destroy it in a few seconds.
It Can Harm The Unit

Without water to cool and lubricate it, the pump will work harder than it should, causing it to wear down quickly. This can happen even with just a few seconds of running the pressure washer without the water being turned on.

Stale fuel that`s been sitting in a gas pressure washer may need to be cleaned out. If your gas-powered Generac, DeWalt, or Craftsman power washer won`t start, it could be because of old fuel. Fuel that`s been sitting in your gas pressure washer for 6 months or more can oxidize and become contaminated.
Turn on the water. The pressure washer hose will fill with water, so it is important to purge the system of excess air before starting the unit.

My Honda 2600 psi power washer will not pull to start. It was running great then I allowed the neighbor to borrow it. He ran the washer till it was out of gas and proceeded to refuel and at this point it would no longer start. The pull cord is out about 4-6 inches out and I am concerned about taking the casing off myself.

Fearing that it may throw more off on the unit. If i take the casing off are there any spring loaded parts that will dismount?

What should I do? Spark Plug? Turn wrenches?

Please let me know

ANSWER : You should be fine to take the recoil off, there shouldn’t be anything that shoots out at you. You might want to check the oil level on the engine, many of the Honda engines won’t start unless there is enough oil in them. If your oil level is fine, check to make sure that your motor is getting spark.
