No pressure- pressure washer

I have a 6hp 2300 psi 2.0 gpm craftsman gas powered pressure washer 5 plus years old. It has always performed flawlessly until about a month ago; it starts first pull but gas no pressure.I checked both water lines and pressure nozzle but-I don't know. Any ideas

No pressure

Check the presasure adjustment valve, it may be stuck, or have stuff under the seat. Also make shure before you start it, hold the gun valve open long enough to get all the air out.

Good suggestions.

Often times the unloader valve gets stuck, causing this problem.
