If the App don't work neither does the K7 'Smart; pressure washer

This device is 'smart' device. As such if its not connected to the app it will not work. The app disconnects and if you do not use it for a period of time it requires you to go to through the log in process again, which is tedious. The key point is no app, your cleaner will not work. When it connects it goes OK but its when it connects.

Today I spent half an hour trying to get back on, I have given up. It seems the app is more of a marketing devise than anything else for pushing their products. I have used other smart devices and had zero issues. Karcher seems to think cleaning pavers etc is an 'experience' and have forgotten that for most its a tedious chore that you want over ASAP. Show details

Karcher Pressure Washer K7

The pressure washer worked fine. but stopped working after 2.5 years with very little use, approx once a month.
The seals on the pressure washer extension kept leaking after every use and was expensive to replace.
There could have been better holders for additional standard attachments.
A very expensive for the quality of the product. Karcher has a good marketing name in the market. This is my second Karcher product that failed with very little use.
Will not buy Karcher again and suggest people investigate alternative products. Show details

Terrible Product. Poorly made. Don't buy it

Purchased a Karcher K7. It consistently broke down. Customer service by Karcher was terrible. It may look good, however it doesn't do the job it states it can. It broke down the 2cnd time it was used. Show details

Poorly made and broke without warranty

Only used about a dozen times before it stopped working and Karcher made it extremely difficult to get it repaired so I gave up and brought another brand. Buyer Beware Show details

Not the product Karcher use to be

I have a k5 and a k7 both consistently break down and like another review the head burst under pressure . As I got sick of taking the units to the repair centre to get repaired I chose to pull the K7 apart myself. It was really disheartening to see the poor quality of the components that Karcher are using now . A cheap Chinese pressure cleaner on EBay is about the same quality. So I have thrown the Karcher to the tip and bought a Spitwater . I have an old Karcher that is now pushing 40 years old and still works a treat BUT that was when Karcher made quality products. Show details

Cracked water pressure head after 2nd usage

Purchased K7 Premium FC Plus and the second time I used it the water pressure head cracked leaking water everywhere even without power on.
Bunnings kindly replaced the item with the same model and yet again after 2 weeks the water pressure head cracked once again.
Reported both issues to Karcher, they took all details and serial numbers of both units and said they would get back to me by COB 2 days ago and still no call.
Not good Customer Service!
Today I returned the item to Bunnings once again for full refund. Show details

Kaercher K7 premium smart control + area cleaner t450

I'm using it since 3 years, got it for super cheap 670A$ with the T450
Pressure is amazing, what else to say about 180bar and brass pump
best precise jet pistol in the market
also some really smart features, the bluetooth control might be a bit confusing at first, but it's nice when you get used to it.
detergent also works perfect Show details

Rubbish

K7 ‘Premium’
The detergent bottle coupling snapped off and fell into the body of the machine the second time I used it.
The hose never winds up or pulls out without getting jammed.
The handle is useless.
Put simply, just don’t buy it. Show details

Gimmicky junk at a premium price

Too many small problems to list. Lance needs repair every time you change it - little yellow piece and oring come out in the wrong half of the lance. Detergent bottle useless, hose reel useless, but functions ok once you get it working. Won’t even bother with warranty as still will be junk. I’ll buy something else. Show details

Absolute garbage!

I have never in my life bought a piece of equipment this bad!
The detergent bottle feature has never worked from new.
Now the multijet lance is not spinning.
I enquired about warranty, but I have to get this heavy item to a service centre myself.
Their instruction video has an error that can be fatal to the machine. I pointed this out to Karcher over a year ago but it has not been fixed.
I loved the power, but after a total of about 10 hours use, it's useless. Show details

Doesn't work and the claims process is atrocious. Don't waste your time

36 days after purchase our karcher K7 handle stopped connecting to the machine. Even though we were only days past the 30 day Bunnings return policy, we were told to send it back through Karchers warranty for repairs.

21 days later we still have no pressure washer. In fact, it hasn't even been assessed for repair yet by Suncoast Pressure Cleaners in Warana. They have almost owned it as long as we did. For a nearly $1000 machine we are very surprised at the customer service. We thought Karcher was a reliable company. Show details

do not waste your time and money, I wouldn't even give it a star

The fancy battery control lance doesn't want to connect to the machine. All I can see it the battery level indicator when I try to activate the wand, nothing happens. The instruction manual gives no reason for trouble shooting the land connection issues, the pressure coming out of the lance lasted for about 15 mins now its just a trickle, Now I have to box it up and go get my money back. Waste of time, Completely

Great detailed review thanks. I was planning on purchasing the K7 on the weekend but my husband wanted the top range electrical Gerni. It seems to be a better quality build but only 2100psi, which concerns me. Just wondering if you considered the Gerni? Ta H
