Craftsman pressure washer how to adjust soap 2300 psi


A common mistake made when using the soap pickup function on pressure washers is to use one of the high pressure tips, usually green, white, yellow or red. If you are using one of these there will be too much back pressure in the line for the soap dispenser to work. You have to use the low pressure, soap tip, usually black, for this function to work.

Start a load of laundry, & a few mins later it stops & says sud. It done it about 4 times. Tried smaller loads, & same outcome.


I am assuming that you are using a HE front loading washer. If this is the case, there are two or three possible causes:

1. Using too much soap (use the lowest soap line on your HE detergent);
2. Using incorrect soap (must be HE)
3. There might be something in the load that contains soap or contaminants that is causing the correct soap to act irregularly.

Try running a bleach-only load with no soap. It might take several loads to correct the condition; I occasionally have this problem on my Duet.

When washing dark colors there is a soap residue left on clothes,i have tried using very small amounts of soap as well as different brands of soap


Try using white vinegar in place of liquid fabric softener. Half a cup at the rinse cycle in a full load will do it. Trust me, the smell of the vinegar will fade quickly as it works to break down the soap.

There are two other possibilities here:

You're overloading the washer with clothes - An overfull washer has the problem of not providing proper drainage before the spin cycle starts - Soap ends up getting embedded in clothes instead of being sucked out of the drain.

Or, You're using non-HE soap in an HE washer.

Hope that helps.

Extra suds due to liquid soap in the machine overflowing. How do I drain it?


This is strange. Are you using an electric dishwasher liquid soap, OR are you using a dish soap that you manually use to wash dishes?
REGULAR dish soap liquid that is not specifically made for dishwashers creates a foamy suds with lots of bubbles that will in fact bubble out of your dishwasher. on the other hand. Electric Dishwasher detergent will NOT create foamy suds with lots of bubbles.
Switch your soap. The next cycle any residue suds or soap will be gone as long as you use the proper liquid detergent. I would also recommend using a rinse agent which further helps break down and rinse off residue.

It leaks very sudsy water all over my floor through the door. I think it is clogged and not draining properly.


very sudsy? 'automatic' dishwasher soap should not do this. if you are using 'hand' dishwashing soap, use 'automatic' dishwasher soap. if you are using 'automatic' dishwashing soap, try another brand. suds are for people to look at. 'automatic' dishwasher soap should not do this. good luck

Our Kitchenaide dishwasher is approximately 4 years old, all my glass ware comes out cloudy and I have to wash it by hand.


Your using too much soap. Use 2-3 tespoons of name brand powder soap. Premeasured gel packs or tablets are too much soap as well. Cut them in half if u are using those. You can run a cycle with 5-6 cups of white vinegar with no soap or dishes to clean the soap residue from inside the dishwasher.

Soap


that's usually about right you can use three or four depending on dirtiness of laundry, but as a general rule od thumb just barely enough to get clothes clean.

Smell on towels


It's good that you are using HE detergent but you're probably using way too much. To test this run the washer empty (no soap) and if you see bubbles inside that's left over soap that's still in the unit. If so, keep running it empty until the bubbles are gone then start using only about 1 tablespoon of soap per load. The washer uses about 1/10 of the water so you need to use 1/10 of the soap. Use the same amount of softner. The excess soap and softner build up in the unit and cause the smell.
