I assume you are talking about the chemical intake tube... Most commonly you would see one end of the tube attached to the small tapered nozzle on the pump, and the other end which should have a small filter attached to it - is what you would submerge in a container of soap/degreaser/chemical solution of your choice.

If you have it set up in this way you will get the addition of whatever soap product you have the clear tube sitting in mixed into your spray stream. -- it's important to note that you will only get suction and soap flowing through if you are using the widest (black) spray tip. With the broad spray tip on you can get soap flowing either with or without the engine running - which can sometimes be helpful if you have to be careful of what you get the soap on.

Washer will just fill to the lower level for a small load when i put on large load it still fills to lower level and starts to wash as usual. Only probolem is the water level every thing else works fine

water level is controlled by a pressure switch that is connected to the lower part of the tub-it may be clogged-pull off the small rubber hose that is connected to the water level control knob-make sure the fitting on the tub is clear and the hose is clear-take the hose off both ends and blow through the end that connects to the control-cheers Denny

How do you fix low pressure on windshield washer fluid sprayer.

Its just plugged up, probably right at the nozzle it's a pretty tiny hole. To clear it out you need to find a small diameter wire that will fit inside the hole to clear the blockage. Something like a small gauge sewing needle or a straight pin. It can also get plugged up in the rubber tubing. Usually you can just blow through it with lung power. Just pull the tube off at the nozzle and run the washer this will tell you if it's the nozzle or the tubing.

How do you clean a washer hose

If you mean the water supply hoses, usually the intake screen becomes plugged with debris from the house water supply. The screen is removable with a small screwdriver or other small tool. Sometimes it helps to just reverse the ends of the hose and place the washer end into a sink or bucket. There should be a screen on each washer entrance connection that can get plugged as well. Hope this helps!

I have a unionpower up 150 premium pressure washer theirs a small hose that comes out at the back of the engine with a small filter at the end of the hose pipe I dont no what its for

If the hose actually comes out of the pump (look carefully) it sounds like the chemical pick up line. It would most likely be clear plastic tubing with a plastic filter at the end. You drop this into your chemical (soap, etc) container and under low pressure it will siphon the chemical and apply it through the wand.

Washer will fill but it does not stop

Your water level switch is stuck.
Probably due to soap scum in the air dome line.
Remove the control console screws to access the water level switch.
Remove the small plastic hose from the water level switch and blow through it to dislodge the blockage.
If it is difficult to blow through,remove the front panel and take the hose off at the air dome on the side of the tub.
Push a small wire into the air dome to clear the clog.
Replace the hose on both ends.
Set the timer for SPIN and run a spin cycle.
Then retry the water level fill.
If it does not fill correctly,replace the water level switch.

There is a clear or white hose that attaches to the drum of the washer on one end, the other attaches to the fill valve, it is common for small unwanted pest ( mice) to chew a small hole in this. Therefor not allowing the pressure switch to recieve the static pressure to actuate it ... or you got a bad pressure switch...
