Karcher electric pressure washers come with various nozzles to direct the spray of water in different ways for different outdoor tasks. For example, you might want to change to a high-pressure nozzle to remove moss from your patio after you have finished cleaning your car with a softer spray nozzle. Changing the nozzle on your pressure washer is designed to be straightforward; you can easily complete the task in just a few seconds.

Step 2

Twist the nozzle where it meets the trigger handle counterclockwise to detach it from the pressure washer.

Step 3

Insert the new nozzle into the trigger and turn it clockwise to lock it into place.

Step 4

Turn the pressure washer back on. The new nozzle is ready for use.
