power washer has no pressure

I have a gas powered 1600psi power washer and it hs no pressure. The engine runs great so there must be a problem with the pump. I checked the screen where you connect the hose and every thing is clean. Does anyone know what to do or is the pump junk? Thanks for all your help.

It could be several things, but most of the time it is a stuck unloader valve that causes the problem.
