    May be an air lock, fill the pipe with water first then connect it to the pressure washer

        No problem
        Also some pressure washers don't suck water from a bucket they have to be contected to the mains water, but if you can get a bucket or tank up high-ish then that will feed one and make sure all pipes are full, some times start up the washer and then stop it and restart it may help

          @Gizmo, is this the battery powered Work jet wash, similar to photo?
          As Jiffy said most power washers work of mains water, but this is a portable one and can work from a bucket/container.

            Have you use it at all, it mite be worth a try , conect it to the mains if you can and try it, then try it from the bucket,
