This is on my pressure washer and I'm tired of having to beat it to close it and beat it to open it. It's the connector where the pressure hose plugs into. I've lubed it with many thing but it just keeps sticking. Is this something I can buy generically or what? What is it called?

Remove the one on the machine first and determine the thread size, it will be NPT 1/4 or 3/8 then order the one with that size.
This one is stainless 1/4 but they have 3/8 also.

Amazon has a nice selection of all kinds of compatible fittings.

The swivel end is great for cleaning gutters!

It looks more like 9/16" to me laugh Yeah, that should be 3/8 pipe.

This is funny. I just bought 3/8 to M22 quick disconnect adapters at Lowes yesterday for my pressure washer. These quick disconnects are very common on pressure washers. You can search for "quick disconnect" at Lowes or HD to find these.

Make sure you get quick disconnects that can handle the PSI your pressure washer operates at. Usually they can handle up to the 5000PSI range but make sure since yours looks to max out at 3000?

May want to also clean up that male end, looking a little rusty.

Replacing the quick disconnects is always effective but, in case you don't live near a hardware store, etc., you can always try one of these tricks:

Got the same washer as you, really good unit, has never failed me. Mine is red and I think I bought it in 98. When I have problems with the disconnect I put a little grease on it. If I forget to let off the pressure, it won't release. Mine has been abused and I use it a lot, don't think I've changed the oil in the motor more than a couple of times. Just changed the oil in the pump this year. I take very good care of my autos, mower, quad, etc, but for some reason I overlook my washer.

Yes that is 3/8 NPT, this is a nice one. I like stainless around water, HD and Lowes has sure dropped the quality of their products.
If I didn't order online I would go to a real hardware store with brand name stuff, pay a little more but higher quality.
Use yellow gas pipe thread tape on these. Change both parts.

You got the 3/8 not the 1/4 that was in the link right.
