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.

If you need help finding your model number please view our Karcher video tutorials section.

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.

    Replacement is of a different plastic and is much better than the original, comes complete with 'O' ring seal and inlet valve. My K300B does not have the metal pull out clips as shown in your video, thus have to remove more parts to get at it, not difficult.

      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.

      Hi, Here is a short video on our website showing how to remove the Inlet and Outlet Connector on a Karcher 3 series. However the process should be fairly similar.

      You need to replace either the hose or the elbow depending on where the damage is. See the video on this part.

  • 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.

  • Q 320 karcher 1 Answer

    Hi I need to get a inlet elbow for my old karcher 320 your inlet are all black and the one on my pressure washer is clear plastic

      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.
