Hi,

I had the same problem on the same unit. All you need to do is pull out the front tip of the gun nozzle to engage the soap dispenser. It's as simple as that, but because there is only a tiny footprint mention of this in the instructions, it turns out to be a long drawn out problem for many of us. Hope this helps.

Not familiar with this model but most work on suction so unit needs to be on low pressure for this to work, usually set by turning nozzle, or you can remove lance from gun, once you are in low pressure if you still have no soap you may need to dismantle and clean valve as these can block due to a build up of soap or chemical.

Pressure washers usually will not draw soap on high pressure setting. Switch wand or set wand to lower setting. Pin hole leak in soap line can also cause problem.

Also, be sure the cap is turned to the direction that lets the soap in. It has a gradation on it and if it is turned all the way to the smallest (cap fully closed) very little soap will be injected into the stream.

My power washer does not let the soap come out when you turn the soap control on


You have to use the SOAP nozzle (Black Tip)  It is a low pressure nozzle.  The venturi effect prevents the psiphon under high pressure

On my karcher pressure washer, how do i get the soap to come out of the spray nozzle?


Two nozzels came with your washer one has a cone shaped head, the other one is blunt, attach the blunt one to the trigger. You will notice on the barrel of the nozzel it says "mix" turn the indicator line to "mix" and it should work. This is a very low pressure setting and is used to "apply" the soap only. You cannot despense soap in the hight pressure mode.

Washer won't turn on - door locked


If your lights wont come on it is most likely your power cord...Open the back up by removing the Three screws in the back and check your power cord. I checked my cord and the person that installed the power cord installed it incorrectly and the metal wheel ate its way through the cord from rubbing against it over time hince the reason for the main breaker box triggering. If you need more help and dont want to spend a bunch of money you can email me at cct776606@msn.com I removed the top and found the problem. check this first before you call out a professional!
