Power Washer Problem

I have an Excell Water Blaster power washer. It is type 1119WB. The problem is that when it is on, the motor sounds normal, but the water doesn't come out pressurized. Is there any way to rebuild the valve or pump to make it work? Any suggestions?

Hello isuras2!

Check the inlet screen to be sure it's not clogged. Then, check the unloader valve...a common cause of your symptom. It could be stuck with rust, debris, or deposits.

The inlet screen is clear. How do I check the unloader valve to see if it is working or not?

You will need to remove the valve and inspect it visually.
