Here are three of the most common Greenworks 1700 psi pressure washer parts issues encountered by users and how to troubleshoot them:

There Is Low Pressure To No Pressure at Al

There can be several causes for these types of problems, but the most common culprit is the water supply. If the water supply is low, then it could result in low pressure to no pressure at all.

Another cause could be the hose. Consider the hose’s diameter and other factors such as if it is resistant to kinks and knots. If it’s not, then the water most likely gets blocked, resulting in low pressure to none. This type of issue will cause the pressure washer to not function properly.

When choosing a hose for the pressure washer, it is important that the hose is resistant to knots and kinks so that the pressure of the water will not be affected

Lastly, when the nozzle at the tip of the trigger wand or gun gets worn out, you have to replace it. If you leave it as it is, then a tiny hole can become bigger over time because of the water pressure, and it will result in having low pressure to no pressure.

Some of the pressure washer replacement parts that you should consider are:

  • 25” extension hose and or 25” reel hose
  • Jumper hose
  • Internal hose reel
  • Hose reel handle
  • High-pressure connection pipe
  • Turbo nozzle
  • Hose connection kit

There Is Difficulty In Shutting Off The Pressur

When the water cannot be stopped using the trigger wand, check the unloader valve. If there is no problem with the unloader valve, then you can be sure that the problem is with the trigger wand. Due to wear and tear, the trigger wand may need to be replaced from time to time. You have to stock up on the trigger wand especially if you use bleach to clean it. The bleach can lead to drying of the trigger wand, which will eventually cause it to crack.

Proper care and maintenance of the trigger wand or gun are important for the pressure washer to work properly

There Are Leak

In cases of leaking water, the problem might be caused by any of the following:

  • Inlet seal
  • Piston seal
  • Pump
  • Outlet seal

The main function of the inlet seal is to seal the intake of the water. Since it connects both the hose and the inlet coupling, there can be a lot of pressure to it. In time, it can lead to breakage. If the leakage is somewhere between the hose and the inlet, then you can conclude that it is time to replace the inlet. This can be done easily, and inlet seals are usually easy to find.  

As for the piston seal, you can double check if the leak is coming from the pump. If the pump does not have any cracks, then the problem is with the pistons. Pistons are what creates the pressure for the water to be forced out of the nozzle. If the piston is not properly sealed, then water can escape, and it can affect the pressure of the water coming out of the nozzle.  

For the pump, you have to make sure that during winter, you remove the water every time after you use it to make sure that the water inside it does not freeze. If water freezes inside the pump, then its volume expands, causing the pump to crack and break.

As for the outlet seal, you can check if the o-rings that connect the pump and the hose are damaged. If there is leaking in that area, then it is time to change it.

If there are any issues with any of these parts, it will not be an issue since these are easily visible to spot and easy to change. You just have to make sure that you check the pressure washer from time to time for any damage before using it to avoid any problem from getting worse. If your pressure washer needs replacement, be sure to check some greenworks pressure washer reviews before making your next purchase.
