SOURCE: soap not dispensing from pump
Try pumping it and covering the hole with your finger until pressure builds. This usually works. Soap is heavier than water and it takes a little longer to move up.

I just replaced the pump innards with new and it's working now. Just for fun, I took the old one apart. There's a little metal ball bearing at the bottom of the chamber in the pump. The ball and the bottom of the chamber had a little rust and gunk in them. Since I've only ever put soap and water in the pump, I suspect it's either the metal spring and ball bearing rusting or some manufacturing debris left in the bottom of the chamber. The new one works fine but so does the old one. Now I have a spare. It was a little tricky getting the old one apart - I couldn't get the top to release, I just pried it off. Seemed to go back together OK so it should be fine if I need it.

Two things spell trouble for these poorly engineered units:water and thick soap...
Inside these pumps is a metal ball for
the check valve. any water in your soap
will corrode this ball, causing the pump
to lose it's prime...
Using soap thats too thick (like Dawn)
will cause the soap to harden around the moving parts and impede the pumping
action. Try a thinner soap, such as inexpensive pink hand soap.DO NOT
ADD WATER! (See above)
Hope this helps.

Make sure the clear tube is inserted into the pump head properly.Make sure the tube is not kinked. try filling the bottle full of water and try pumping the water out first. Sometimes the dispenser gets an air lock and takes a bit of continuous pumping to get it to work
