Blockage in pump of huskey 2600psi

The engine runs like it is trying to pump, no water is discharging from where the pressure hose attaches. When the hose is attached, you can hear the pressure build up, and when the handel is engaged, it squirts for a second then nothing.

You may need to have the pump replaced. Most Husky pumps under 3000 psi don't have parts available. If you bought it within two years, the pump should still be under warranty. Check with Home Depot for service centers near you. They should be able to verify if it qualifies for a free replacement based on the serial number.

SOURCE: Ex-Cell VR2500 Builds Pressure but Won't Spray

I have a similar problem and diagnosed it to be a problem with the gun. I spoke to a technician that services this pressure washer and he walked me through all the diagnostic steps. The pump is working because there is pressure being built up and the gun sort of works because you can get water out before the washer is started. The technician said that the mechanism inside the gun is either clogged or broken. I am going to Home Depot or Lowes to purchase a new gun and will try it tonight. Guns are only about $30-40. He said generic is fine as long as the thread matches and PSI is in range. Good luck!

SOURCE: Pressure washer starts then shuts down in 2 seconds

hey mate,

It sounds like your bypass valve/unloader valve is sticking when pressure builds up in the lance,hose and head the pressure cleaner changes to a recirculate mode so it does not blow out hoses or seals or causes any damage to the unit, the bypass valve is the component that activates this sequence if that valve is stuck it will just try to continue to create pressure which in turn puts load on the engine and stalls it...

That is why it starts up straight away and only when it builds up pressure is when the engine stalls.

You would be best taking this to a qualified pressure cleaner technician as there are alot of little parts and orings plus the the head will need cleaning up and the bypass valve lubed, they may not of seen this at the service as it is hard to test a unit without the suited hose and lance... Often use will help this problem when a unit sits for a period of time that will cause issues such as this!!!

Regards
Brad:)

Why doesn't it work when the water hose is attached?


Pressure washers can only be started/run with water attached. No water burned out pump in 5 seconds! If pump puts out high pressure water without wand/hose attached, bad wand or hose, if not bad pump. Replace pump.

My chevy Venture van still overheating after radiator replaced, temp gauge replaced and fans fixed. WHY?


You may have air trapped in the cooling system. This will cause overheating. When you fill the system, there is a small brass air purge valve above the coolant pump and another on the thermostat housing. These need to be loosened and trapped air released when filling the cooling system.

Water pump runs constantly but no water pressure or water comes out of hose.


Lots of possibilities. Inlet filter might be clogged. I once had a lizard crawl into a water feed line, totally blocked the feed. Check valves might be stuck closed. Discharge hose might be plugged. Pump might be trashed ( if it is a vertical engine it is probably a throw away pump) Nozzle might be plugged.
Disconnect the hose at the discharge and turn on the water supply. It should have a stream of water even without the motor running. That will check the inlet filter, feed pipe and check valves.

Won't pump water


UNPLUG PUMP AND SEE IF THE IMPELLER IS JAMED, IF IT SPINS FREE TRY IT WITH A SHORT DISCHARGE HOSE. POSSIBLE BLOCKAGE IN DISCHARGE HOSE WILL TRAP AIR AND WONT LET PUMP PRIME.

The machine is washing but the water will not drain after the wash cycle


if the washer spin's than you have a blockage,most likly it is in your water pump.take the discharge hose and lower it in a bucket,if no water come's out than most likly it is in the water pump.you will nead to remove as much water as you can by hand.also you will nead a pot or bowl to catch the water when you remove the water pump from the discharge hose and the large hose that go's from the outer tub and the water pump.with the pump off you should be able to look inside the pump and see the blockage and remove it.

Sounds like the governor is stuck. My pressure washer speeds up when it has to pump. Don't know if yours uses vacuum to trigger governor or direct linkage. Good Luck.

I hAVE A 2600 PSI HUSKY PRESSURE WASHER, AND I HAVE NO PRESSURE GOING TO THE NOZZEL. i HAVE CHECKED EVERYTHING AND EVERYTHING IS ATTACHED.


remove the pressure hose and turn your water supply on and water should flow thru the pump on out where the pressure hose is. If not you have a blockage in the pump.

Karcher 2500 no pressure problem


sounds like you have an inlet blockage to the pump or not enough volume to feed the pump. make sure hose is turned full on when washing and see what happens. if not you may have to remove adapter wher hose screws in and check for a blockage.
