Pressure washer pump oil?

I need to change the oil in my pressure washer pump because some water got into the vent hole. I was wondering what kind of oil it takes. If there is a special oil for pressure washer pumps.
Thanks

For those who are also wondering that kind of oil to use I called a place that sells and service pumps and they told me to use diesel motor oil.

lol I'v used both the oil that is call for it (you can find it at Lowe's) and HD30 motor oil.

The one with the motor oil blew up but I don't think it was because of the oil in the pump. but I would use the oil that is called for, its not that expensive and why risk a $200 pump

I know at work we use Cat pumps.We only use the Cat pump oil.It is really thin,not like motor oil.The are more commercial pumps as opposed to something you use at home but I think the oil would be similar.
