My pressure washer will no longer siphon the cleaning solution into the pump.  I've never torn down one of these pumps and was hoping there is a way to back flush it or something to get it going again.
The only suggestions my manual gives are: siphon hose not connected to the tank; siphon hose plugged or cracked; high pressure nozzle installed. You've prolly already ruled out all three.
A search revealed some YouTube vids that point to replacing the siphon mechanism.  I'll go ahead and order one for my unit and swap it out before I use it again.  Looks like a very simple repair.
