    You asked for more clarification: ok, the power washer has a detergent hose. One end has a filter that goes into the bucket of detergent solution. The other end goes....where? That's what we want to know. Underneath the power washer are several options. There is no diagram in the booklet. The detergent solution is not going up the tube into the power washer.

I need to know where to put detergent in the pressure washer I have no model number

These units come with a detergent bottle that attaches to the spray wand. The manual describes what detergents to use and the attachment reduces the pressure and siphons the right amount of detergent from the container. It is not a good idea to try to run detergent through the pump.
Here is a link to the operating manual for a similar pressure washer.

How do I remove the detergent tank, so I can empty and rinse it?

You have to remove the outer coverings to get down to the tank or if you can get to the bottom end of the pressure hose, you may be able to slip off he plastic supply hose to the tank and back lush up the hose and rinse the tank out. Never leave detergent in the tank, it will congeal over time and block the line.

The only filter on the detergent pickup is usually at the end of the hose you drop into the detergent. To clean the line and syphon attachment only requires a little pressurized air to blow out any debris that may be in the line. Make sure you are using the black, soap tip on the pressure gun when trying to use the detergent syphon system. If you are using any of the high pressure tips there will be too much back pressure in the line for the syphon to work.

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.

Washer will starts. Then SUDS then F35 and quits.

Suds and F-35 means yall are using too much of the HE detergent or the wrong stuff (non HE)


Possible Causes/Procedure
Check if pressure hose is fixed correctly.
Check if the airtrap is not blocked.
Check if the hose is not blocked.

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain
or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes
the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try
to spin or drain again.

If too much detergent was used:
Run through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.
This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
Unplug washer or disconnect power.


Don't replace this dude (item 20) $86 till you know the soap problem has been remedied.
What other pearls of wisdom do I have? Let's see
Oh yeah the pump, if it has junk in it then these errors will sometimes pop up so...
it will not hurt to check it

When I turn on the machine, it begins to fill with water. Water then (before the machine would be full) pours out of the tray area where you add the HE detergent. Anyone know a potential fix?

The leak is due to a clogged, small, plastic screen filter located in the cold water hose attached to the back of the washer.
Remove the filter, clean it, place back in hose and reattached hose to washer.
To make the process easier, you can also place a hose filter in the end attached to the cold water faucet so that you don't have to pull the washer so far from the wall.

Check/clean that strainer/filter several times a year.
