    Model number please?
    Let's assume it's the 80746 since that's the one most likely to have this issue.
    Let's also assume you've already made good & sure that you don't have a clogged nozzle.

        Ok I checked assembly behind high pressure outlet and replaced an o ring other than that looked fine.
        Unloader was stuck but I got it moving again now when I hooked up the water it flowed out the wand continuously but when I tried to start it water shut off and now I can't pull the rope very hard(pump has too much pressure?)

        UPDATE: Ok I got motor started water comes out outlet but motor stalls without much output pressure.

          Issue is SOLVED!!!! I took another look at that unloader valve and realized I didn't take it all the way apart and sure enough their was a broken o-ring inside! Thx for the helpful forum and your collective wealth of knowledge!!
