Pressure Washer - No Pressure


I have a gas powered pressure washer. It was working properly and not it's not. If I have the machine off, I can squeeze the trigger and water squirts out of the nozzle. As soon as I start the engine, the water no longer comes out of the nozzle. Any ideas?

Is it a Karcher? If so the pressure relief valve is probably stuck. Here's a link to instructions on how to free it. I've done it to mine, so I know it works.

No experience with Husky other than I think they might be made by Homelite.

The pumps in the certain Husky,DeVilbiss,Excel and several others are all made in the same place.The motors were made to run 3-500 hrs. and the pumps last 30-50 hrs.
The model number would help .Any more information would help.There is an upgrade pump available that is made to last 3-4 times as long for around $120.
