Neighbor came over pulled the trigger on the wand, ran like a top. Released the trigger and it stopped. When we just ran water through it, you could hear the pump making a weird noise.

That is all.

It sounds like the Unloader Valve on the Pump. Pretty easy to get to and check out.

Wasn't that.. I pulled it. No issue. After the manufacturer tried to get me to pay a couple hundred bucks for a part that won't be in for months, I reached out to tech support, I have a warranty and a repair shop that is looking at it. Guy said it sounds like something in the water pump. He'd let me know.

When you find out please let me know. Our pressure washer started doing the same thing as yours. It's down at my brother's house and I haven't been able to pull the valve yet and take a look. Our's is about 15 years old. If I figure out the problem I will pass it on. 04-cheers
