Q:

question about my power washer

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the pressure washer. From what I can tell from the details, the pressure washer runs fine as long as the trigger is pulled but will die if the handle is release. If this is the case, I suspect the unloader valve in the pump is stuck. The unloader releases the pressure in the pump when the handle is not pulled. The unloader has a check ball that can stick. I recommend taking the unloader apart and cleaning the parts with a cloth and WD-40. Then reassemble the unloader and check the operation. If it still does not release the pressure I recommend replacing the unloader assembly.

Please let me know if you need further assistance on repairing the pressure washer.
