  • Ridgid 3000 powerwasher will not stay running

    I have used this Ridgid powerswasher model RD80746 for about 2 years off and on with no issues, my wife put bleach in the front soap container and shortly afterwards the powerwasher stopped. I can restart the engine, but it seems that it will only stay running as long as I have the trigger pulled, once I release the trigger it sounds like it is under load and the engine stalls.
    Any ides ?

    Bleach is corrosive. That's why it tells you (in the op's manual) in three different places not to use it in your pressure washer. Your unloader is sticking and there's also the possibility that the pilot passages going to the unloader are clogged with the residue left over from corrosion.
