There are a few issues with your unloading valve that causing stalling the engine pump. Troubleshooting of this problem is pretty simple and you can do it yourself easily.
In this way, why does my power washer keep surging?
Water flow may be restricted to the pressure washer. Check that all hoses are free of kinks, leaks, or blockage. If the nozzle has even a little bit of dirt in the tip, it may cause enough obstruction for the pressure washer to pulsate.
How long can you run a pressure washer without water?
For this reason you should not let your pressure washer idle, not spraying water for more than a few minutes. Without cooling the pump head the temperature will begin to climb to 200+ degrees. When it gets that hot, water seals and o-rings soften and wear quickly. Valves can be distorted and warp.
