If your power washer leaks water from the connection between the hose and inlet, the seal and possibly the coupling on the inlet are likely broken and will need to be replaced. This seal and coupling should be fairly easy to remove and replace.
In most cases this is not an internal leaking problem. The leaking is caused by water leaking from the adapter attached to the water inlet because the clear adapter is not seated properly. Water leaks by the threads and is projected into the unit`s case and water comes out the bottom of unit.
The leak could be due to the normal operation of the thermal release valve. The thermal release valve allows hot water to exit the pressure washer if the water temperature becomes excessively high. If the pressure washer is left running while it is not spraying water, the water in the pump will begin to heat up.
The dispenser is blocked
Usually, using too much detergent will cause a blockage in the dispenser drawer, which will, in turn, make the water overflow. Clean the drawer with hot water and a brush.
When the soap reservoir is situated beneath the counter or hand pump, it has to be drawn up to the nozzle. In this case, the main reason for soap dripping is when a bit of soap is left close to the end of the nozzle and slowly falls away after use.
The Thermal Relief Valve, when properly matched to your pump model, will open and either discharge water to the floor or it can be routed through a discharge hose to a drain, allowing fresh water to be safely introduced to the pump while cooling it down before damage occurs.

Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose. There is a little metal finger thing that you can tell pushes up into place when the water pressure is high. It seems like it is supposed to drop down and allow some soap through when the water is running. I found a loose(attached to nothing) gasket, looks like a little donut. It was just free floating in there. I’m thinking it may go over the finger mechanism. I just put it back on top of the finger, like a halo and put the screw in piece back in. Anyway, if you know, let me know how all that goes together.
I fixed mine works good too, watch my video step by step i put it on youtubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFXSLOBL0Mg

My Honda pressure washer is leaking out of the thermal relief valve and I am looking for a part,I also do not have the manual. The model number is WGC 3030 and it is 3.0 gpm 9.0HP. The number on the thermal valve is 33120004,where can I find a part?
Does the thermal valve just screw into the pump head, if so what size thread is it? I have 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 in stock.
Kranzle electric washer will not suck up soap
Hi, if it has a chemical injector on the machine then the pressure at the lance will have to be lowered for it to pull in soap. it works on a similar principle to how carburetors on cars pull in fuel, bernouli principle. high pressure at one side of an orifice going to low pressure at the other side which causes a negative pressure ( vacuum) which should pull in the soap. there should be a non return valve at the orifice (hole) which prevents the water back feeding into the soap container, it is quite common for this valve to get stuck, it is just a ball, spring and o ring , and the ball sticks to the o ring. if it is this system then take the soap pick up pipe off the injector and just push the ball off it’s seat with a bit of wire.If it is a high pressure soap system then that is different, but they usually work with an injector in my experience.try taking the high pressure hose off the front off the machine and running it, if it has an injector on it it should pull in plenty off soap.hope this helps ,andy
After turning off power washer, it makes several creaking or groaning like noises. Never heard it , its a craftsman wash power washer, is there something wrong. Or is it getting too hot.
Craftsman Pressure washer will not spray
Your not missing anything, check the pump, they tend to go bad over time and may need replacing. The pump provides the pressure as well as the suction for the whole process, pulling water from the hose or tank and pushing it forcefully through the pressure washer line. If the motor is running and you have the water going through the line and to the pump, and no water is coming out, my guess would be the pump.
Need help in getting Honda engine on NorthStar pressure washer to run.
Could be low water pressure I have found.Also, I purchased a can of “stuff” at Lowes today which allows you to circulate a liquid substance which lubricates the pressure pump….the pump could be frozen up…I have a rotating nozzle which I bought…and it had frozen up…this stuff works
