Pressure Washer Inlet Elbow Assembly

If you've been noticing a lack in the suction pressure of your pressure washer, it's most likely a faulty inlet. If this has split, or the seal is slightly worn it can drastically affect the power intake. This replacement L shape plastic inlet elbow assembly is a genuine Karcher spare part.

Please note: This spare is chassis number and serial number dependent. Please contact our call centre with this information so we can check the spare is correct. Your chassis number will look similar to: 1.504-604.0.

    Unfortunately the online video on how to fit Karcher water inlet elbows does not relate to this model and eSpares were unable to offer any assistance. Nevertheless the product itself is fine and was very promptly delivered.

    The item arrived in about five days and trusted that it would be replaced as simply as in the video. A special screwdriver (star-socket screws) is required to open the outer casing. I found the right tip in a power-drill set, cut a slot across 'blunt' end and used it with a normal flat-blade screwdriver. Access to the inlet-elbow was not as easy as opening two clips, as shown in the video. There was a steel cover held by four Allen screws. It was a relief to find that the new item was the right one, which then entailed removing the 'cylinder-head' with three piston springs beneath. The new part was easy to fit and the re-assembly of the washer, hoping the valve-springs had stayed in place! The E300 washer is a great machine, spoiled only by the location of the inlet elbow. It is down at the bottom on the front. If the machine is carried by the black (dragging) handle, the inlet valve is the fist part that hits the ground whenever the machine is put down! It is therefore essential to use the yellow handle on the casing to carry the machine, or this item will need frequent replacing.

      I cannot find the release clip for the Inlet Elbow on my K4.99, do I need to try something else?

      Hi bert, the inlet fits in the same was as the video above, but rather than a clamp holding it in to place, the cover acts as the clamp.

  • Q wrong elbow inlet part for K3.99M? 1 Answer

    This part does not fit although your website says it is the right part. The video you show to install it shows the actual identical correct part which is slightly different from the one you supplied.

      It may be that Karcher have changed the plastic in production and the clear is no longer available. If the part is listed for your appliance the colour of the plastic is not likely to be important.

  • Q my jet wash sounds like it is just ticking over and has no power, its like its reving on and off on its own 1 Answer

      I had the same problem and the only solution is to replace the inlet pipe. However I have discovered that the original pipe is no longer available. I have botched the fitting with silicon tape which minimises the leak.
