How do I connect cleaner hose?

I am using a Craftman Pressure Washer and I have no manual. It has a compartment for a cleaner with a small plastic hose hanging from. I cannot figure out where this hose connects to.

Don't know how to get detergent into the ultimate x pressure washer (1500psi)

To the right of the Brass fitting where your garden hose attaches there is a small round plastic cover piece, pull on that and it will pull out a clear tube with it which goes into any container containing your detergent, it will pull the detergent as you use the pressure washer. Push the tube back in after you are done using it. You can also buy a replacement detergent bottle for other pressure washers if you wanted to.

The machine leak water from inside, and it does not have pressure.

make sure everything is clean;the inlet screen etc. Take a flashlight and look inside were the hose connects and make sure nothing is inside.To do a simple test;connect the hose,turn on the water,and WITHOUT starting the pressure washer,squeeze the trigger on the gun;you should have a steady stream of water coming out,about the same as a kids water gun;like a super soaker;If not,then your problem is something is restricting the water inlet,or if the washer is old,mineral deposits inside a passage.If it does squirt out pretty good,then your washer is tired,or you used a cleaner that's NOT compatible with pressure washer seals,or maybe the unloader is stuck,and won't allow the washer to build pressure...........If it's getting a good supply of water,the only thing that builds pressure is the seals,and the unloader.Other than that,there is a small passage were the outlet is,and that could be restricted with mineral deposits,but I would take apart the hose and check for debris in the line,to be sure Hope this helps!!

My washer does not spray the cleaner solution as high as it did originally. The high pressure spray is fine.

If your pressure washer works like ours, it has a T connection.
A plastic hose comes off the T and goes into the bucket of cleaner
Pressure from the hose creates suction across the T and this draws cleaner into pressure hose
The plastic hose from cleaner connects to a small brass ball valve on the T
The ball valve clogs up or changes over time and cleaner will not draw up into the pressure hose.
We would replace the valve stem
I don't know if they sell the little replacement parts like they used to

Finally we had so much trouble.
We started applying our chemical with a pump-up sprayer.
For us, it was cheaper, and the work went faster.
We put one guy on the pump up sprayer
And then another guy came behind him on the washer.

How do we get the cleaner to go up the hose

We used to add a clorox mixture when we power-washed

There is a special fitting that goes on the power washer line
The fitting is a T with 2 quick connects that match your pump&hose quick connects
The T fitting attaches to pump >> the power washer line attaches to T
The T fitting has a short extension where you attach a plastic hose that goes to your bucket of clorox
The T has a small one-way ball valve that only lets clorox enter the power washer line, but power washer pressure doesn't escape into the clorox
The small ball will clog over time, so when you buy a T, see if you can get replacement part

When you pull the trigger, the pump pressure shoots water out of the gun
The water pressure shooting out of the gun creates a suction that draws up the clorox
The clorox enters the line and gets shot out of the gun
The same basic idea is used on shallow well pumps

We discovered after a few years that is was easier-to-control and cheaper to apply the clorox with a pump-up hand sprayer. We could apply more clorox. The machine was not exposed to chemicals.
Remember the engine draws-in surrounding vapors and those vapors can chew up the metal parts of any combustion surface.

Do you put the clear hose in the bucket with the cleaner to get it to come out of the spray nozzel? If you dont use the low pressure attachment will the cleaner still come out or not? I cannot find an...

You must use the lowest pressure nozzle with the clear hose in the solution or you will not get soap. Make sure you use only the solutions approved for your pressure washer!.

Lost pressure

try this
dissconect hose and lance , and check for water flow through the machine , if theres none or just a trickle then you may have gunk in your inlet filter ( usually a small plastic gauze insert just where the water feed hose connects )
then start machine , check for high pressure flow ( you will see the difference )
its quite common for the nozzle on the lance to become blocked
if all this seems fine but the lance is vibrating then you have a blockage in one or more of your pump valves .

My 2100 will not pull up the cleaner solution. Hose is not kinked, I have primed it, and nipple does not appear to be plugged.

The tubing from the gasoline is not connected

Devilbliss / Excell pressure washers in this model number range use a Honda GC160 engine. Information on this engine can be found here:
This web site also has information about the pump and related parts just look for your model number. I find that pressure washer manuals have very little information about the engine. Small engine / mower repair shops in your area will be happy to give you free information about the where the fuel line attaches. Your engine has a black plastic fuel pump with hoses going to tank and carb. This fuel pump is powered by engine crank/vacuum purssure so there is a third hose from the fuel pump connected to the engine block. Good luck on your repair and email if you have a question or if you have a different engine than mentioned above.
