it is out of warranty as i have had the pressure washer for 18 months , it has been doing this pulsing for 6 to 8 months. this does not answer my question i am sorry adam
Expert:  william replied 7 years ago.

i asked you how long have you had this and you said 6-8 months you did not indicate that it was pulsing for 6-8 months but any ways you need to put a new pump/motor and they come all in one
