Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.

Start mode is also choke. If it will not run off of choke or start, the carb has a clogged jet and will need to be cleaned, possibly rebuilt. Use carb cleaner an compressed air if you have it avail. to you as it helps in cleaning the carb better .

make sure t clean center of carb god as this is the main jet in the carb

We are novices...how do you clean the carburetor? Will the manual address this issue, or is it generally done at a local repair shop?

We may not have all the items here at the house...The washer runs great eccept when trying to switch settings. My grandson is doing the work and he is not a mechanic...(knows computers up-side-dow. :)

Will take it to Home Depot as my grandson does not feel comfortable in doing the repairs himself. Thank tou though for your time.
