B&S Pressure washer pump problems

I have a pressure washer, briggs and stratton clean shot 2050
Model:
020206
Revision:
00

The gaskets on the uploader/ manifold keep blowing out. Could cleaning it help out with this? If so, how?
Thanks!

Have you checked to be sure the unloader valve isn't sticking? Do they blow out immediately or after using it awhile, or in months, or?

I do not know of the frequency of which they blow out.
How do I check to see if the unloader is stuck?

Take it apart and clean and lube it. It is often a brass valve sometimes with a spring on it on the outside.

Ok, I have taken it apart, but do the two pieces of plastic come out of the big piece shown here?

It probably won't come out, they are always stuck in there. I'd try lubricating and cleaning all those parts, put it back together and see if it will work. I'm not a fan of those pumps and I don't spend much time messing with them before condemning them.

What do I lubricate it with?

Silicone. Go to a pool supply store and pick up a tube of lubricant for pump o-rings.
