Poor customer service

K3 Premium Full control was purchased just on 5 years ago, only used a small number of times before ‘outlet value’ gave way. Contacted Karcher and was informed to throw it away as the cost of repairing it wasn’t worth it. Picked up spare parts and hubby fixed it for $10 a abit of petroleum..not to burn it but to pick up the parts. Sadly the customer service at Karcher left a lot to be desired, guess that would be different if you were spending $$$$$$$$. Won’t buy Karcher again Show details

Plastic Rubbish

This is an embarrassment to Karcher - minimal use and internal plastic fittings split, so no water pressure and water spraying out everywhere. Will NEVER buy another Karcher product - Mitre 10 should be equally embarrassed to be selling their products. Show details

Absolute rubbish. Don't waste your money

Second K3 Karcher purchased in last that 18 month. After minimal use both have ended up spewing out water from the unit after minimal usage. Will never purchase another Karcher product ever!!! Show details

A bit big but gets it done!!!!!!!!!!

i got this cause my dyson died again... sick of takin it to the warranty place (3rd time now) i decided to hit up bunnings. Post hot dog I grabbed the karcher cause it was on special. Once home it was a bit bulky for my small apartment but, earned it's worth that night when I spilt milk on the floor (insert joke here lol). Anywayz, its a wet and dry vacuum and took care of business. Happy with it and I recommend it. Show details

Karcher K3. Conducted my own thorough research before buying

Karcher home series are PLASTIC. My K2 lasted forever. Leaked for 3 years. Then finally stopped working. K3 just purchased with thorough research before buying. Soooooo many steps to prevent failure. If anyone wants my research, just ask. Show details

Didn’t last a year

Bought this model after previously owning a Karcher. Even bought the one with upped extra long hose. Worked beautifully for about 6 months with little use. Now it is out of warranty is works fine until you take your finger off the trigger then it refuses to go again. Have to leave it hours before it is ready to resume cleaning.No it does not overheat. Sometimes it just decides that the rest of today will be a rest day and refuses to restart. Very ,very frustrating. Guess we are off to buy a new pressure washer. We will be avoiding Karcher. Show details

3rd Karcher I’ve had. Won’t be a 4th

Purchased 20 September.

Pulled out of the box and my partner commented straight away - I don’t think this is new, there is water coming out of it.

It has been used 3-4 times max. I to use this morning and it won’t turn on or get pressure.

I won’t ever again by a karcher product. Show details

I've had the new model k3, plugged everything in, but no water is coming out when I press the trigger, yes the tap is on and the hose isn't blocked either, it makes a noise like my old one when you turn it on but just no water comes out tia
