The number one cause of low or no pressure when using a pressure washer is a blocked or worn nozzle. Blocked nozzles will prevent water from escaping, while a worn nozzle will allow too much water to pass through, causing the pressure to drop.
A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the pressure washer for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to run stall.
Water leaks and inconsistent behavior are also signs of a potential failure in the near future. González: The typical signal when there is an unloader malfunction is a reduction of flow through the nozzle, which results in pressure loss. Dean: Typical symptom of an unloader failure is a sudden smooth pressure loss.
How Do I Tell If My Unloader Valve is Bad? In most occurrences, the first symptom of an unloader valve going bad is no pressure from the wand when the trigger is pressed. This happens when the unloader valve gets stuck open and does not allow water to enter the hose and trigger.
If your engine will not idle and is continuously stalling, a bad unloader valve may be the cause. The unloader valve is located on the top of the power washers pump system, and occasionally has a black handle on its top.
Thermal Relief Valve protects pressure washer pumps operating in a safe temperature range to prevent overheating. When water temperature reaches above 145º F, pump seals may fail. The thermal relief valve will open to release hot water and allow cold water to enter the pump.
You may need to rebuild or replace the pump. If the pump is more than a few years old, and you use the pressure washer fairly often, replace the pump. If the pump is relatively new, and you don`t use the pressure washer often, either rebuild the pump or replace the pump seals.

My Generac pressure washer will work great for as long as I hold the trigger. If I release the trigger to move something or change positions and then pull the trigger again the pressure doesn’t come back up. No increase in engine RPM either.
ANSWER : Sounds like the unloader valve built-in to your system is sticky. Try lowering the pressure of the regulator to lowest setting then re-adjusting. This will place a different pressure /load on the valve. Also when you store your unit, displace the water in the pump with oil so that lubricant will prevent the unloader from sticking. If you continue to have problem, replace the unloader. Good luck
