PLEASE NOTE: You should always press the RESET button on the GFCI before using the pressure washer.
If your pressure washer is refusing to work or even turn on, the culprit could potentially be the power switches. Most pressure washers use two micro switches that disconnect both the live and neutral connections between the supply and the motor. These switches can jam cutting the power out from reaching the motor.
Your pressure washer is hard to pull start because with each pull you are building up pressure in the system from the pump. It seems like an obvious explanation, but it is true. When you pull the starter cord it will create pressure within the system.
The pressure washer hose will fill with water, so it is important to purge the system of excess air before starting the unit. Simply squeeze the trigger on the gun and the air will release.
When you reset the machine, all error codes in its memory will be cleared, but the error won`t be fixed immediately. For instance, if your washer does not fill with water, it could be because it is not connected to the water line. In such a scenrio, you will see an error code.

Our washer had been woring fine earlier this afternoon. After a short (about 10 minute) break, it developed only hose pressure. We disassembled the nozzle, figuring there might be some obstruction; also made sure the hose wasn’t kinked. No luck even though the motor is apparently running fine. It’s about one year old. What do I do now?
ANSWER : Can you see my posting: “Karcher – no pressure”, also my own comment where I describe my later technical findings – mashed up gearbox. Could it be the same problem as yours, where the motor sounds to be running just fine but there is simply no pressure produced?If you can’t see it add a comment to let me know and I will post you my full articlePhilip Goodwin
