My karcher gas powered pressure washer model HD 3600 dh

Customer Question

My karcher gas powered pressure washer model HD 3600 dh won't allow water from the hose to go threw the manifold into the pressure hose. Took it all apart nothing is broken. Is there a possible blockage ? Something is obviously not correct

Are you checking the manifold with air as you go? It should be open. I have found insect nest and pieces of the o'rings from the pistons lodged into the manifold , blocking any water from passing.

I've tried that and get air as I take it apart just not together. What could I be missing. I would have thought dismantling it would give results. Not the case so I'm doubting what I'm doing. Seems like a very simple pump.

It is, but go back and check the manifold again, it has to plugged!
