SOURCE: my washing machine wont take the soap powder and softener

It could be a water inlet valve that is at fault. Are the hot and cold supplies turned on? Try opening the powder draw very slightly when the machine is filling with water, if no water in powder draw, chances are that the inlet valve is at fault, situated on the inside of machine where the filler pipes connect. Unplug machine from power supply before checking the inlet valves with a resistance meter, making sure to disconnect wires from one terminal to avoid false readings. Tom.

SOURCE: detergent dispenser

As far as I am aware, there IS NO dispenser for bleach, you have to put bleach in drum before adding clothes and starting cycle. The far right compartment is only for "pre-wash" cycles, and if no pre-wash is selected, water will run through ALL compartments at the rinse stage..... Oshie

SOURCE: Water goes thru fabric softener dispenser not soap dispenser!

Yes you will need a service call, you may have a issue with the water valve or control, At the start of the cycle it should not be filling the softener dispenser till later in the program.

Yes the system is cloghed. Pull the detergent drawer out and clean the drawers housing. try using some bleach. It allways helps.

BE ADVICED: after using bleach run quick wash cycle on without any load, it's just to get rid of all bleech remains and not to damage your clothes

Update me about your progress

SOURCE: Washing Machine Keeps Filling with Water through Detergent dispen

This machine has a water valve that works on vaccuum from the tub. You will see a small clear hose that runs from the side of the tub up to this valve. This valve is adjustable to change the water level in the tub to desired setting on some machines, but if it goes bad, it will not shut off, thus overflowing the tub. Find this valve and replace it if adjustment does not work.

On my Karcher 2600, I filled the detergent tank but as I was washing the bus none of it was coming out, it was still full when I finished, any suggestions Ted?


I see this lots of times , the detergent tank will only mt in the low pressure mode of nozzle , this is the only way a siphion will develop inside the soap tank and then high pressure can be used later to wrinse the item off well using just water

2600 PSI Pressure washer will not draw detergent up


I posted an answer to no soap on the Karcher Factory-Reconditioned 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR. Same machine I suppose, but use the black 65 l degree low pressure nozzle.
It's in the manual , I missed it and had a hell of a time trying to figure it out. If that doesn't work check the check valve on the pump(Where the soap hose is) , see if it's gummed up.

Be careful taking it off there's a spring and ball bearing in there.

Cant get my soap dispenser hose working on my karcher winner 10, any suggestion?, lost my instructions manual so dont know weather i need to be doing anything for it!


If you have not yet found a solution, then here are some steps to take.
1. The soap dispenser only works on low pressure!!!!!!! So you have to REMOVE the high pressure Sprayer so that all you use is the Trigger Gun without the Extender.
2. Pull out the thin Plastic Hose with the filter attached in the end, and insert into your container of detergent.
It will only splatter the detergent over the area you want to clean, so you will then need to REATTACH the SPRAYER into the hand gun to work with the soap to lather, clean and spray of till clean.
This seems to be the way the system works on this model......also known as K2.36M (AU) in Australia or (EU) in Europe on the Karcher.com.au site then Service then Manuals. or on the link below.
Hope this helps any of you who has misplaced their Owners Manual just like I did and had a great problem trying to find a link as Karcher doesn't recognize the Model No: as Winner 10 or 11.

Cheers, Luke

How do you use the tube for the detergent


Put the tube into a bucket with detergent that is recommended for your machine then put the wand into low pressure mode and if it has a valve where the hose connects turn the valve to the on position and pull trigger and watch to see if soap starts being drawn out of the soap bottle if it starts pulling the soap up continue to allow it to flow till you get your part soaked with soap, then let it set for 10 minutes then hit it with high pressure hose to wash off, when it is clean then put it on low pressure and pull hose out of bucket with soap and then allow the soap to be pulled out of tube and until there is no longer any soap coming out then store the hose for use later. some machines have a control valve at the end of the wand by turning the tip or pushing tip in or pulling it out some models requires you to use quick disconnect fan tips to lower pressure to use soap.

Karcher G 2600 ph


Dear johnny_river,
In general there are many causes why soap is not sucked. In a domestic and various other machines the soap is only sucked in low pressure. So one thing you can try is remove the nozzle or the complete lance from your gun. This will give a low pressure. If you attach a pipe directly to the machine soap inlet, and soap is not sucked, than the soap valve is "stuck closed" with soap. It is important that one must work with fresh water after using soap. This to flash the system from any soap left. So in a few words attach a pipe directly to the nipple at the machine and use low pressure. Important , you do not have to use soap to test....use fresh water. If this works( which it should)...than service the flow control tap or change it altogether.
Regards,
fulltech.

What to use in my washer?


If your washer is rated for HE detergent, then you're supposed to use HE detergent. The reason being is that HE detergent is concentrated and specifically made for washing machines that use LESS water than conventional washers. Regular detergents are formulated for machines that use about 35 gallons of water for a full wash tub. If you use that same soap in a washer that only uses 5 to 7 gallons of water, you are in affect putting a higher concentration of soap in your new washer. Originally, manufacturers of HE machines stated that you could use regular detergents as long as you cut back on the amount. They later retracted that statement, because regular detergents were damaging the HE washers. You should review your warranty closely. Most newer models now have a disclaimer that states if you use the wrong detergent in your new washer, the warranty becomes null and void. I hope this answers any questions you may have.
