If water is coming out, then you just need to reverse the spring and ball bearing (swap them around). Right now, the spring is where ball bearing should be and this is keeping the ball bearing from seating against the o-ring inside. Shouldn't take more than a few minutes. Usually, the small end of the cone spring goes against the ball bearing.

Why the water is running from detergent siphoning tube?

The siphoning mechanism on almost all power washers use "The Venturi" effect to suck up the detergent. Basically, there's no pump...the force of the water passing the siphon hose causes a vacuum which draws the detergent up the tube. There's a small ball that is supposed to fall and block the tube when the trigger is released so it sounds like it got jammed up in there somehow. You could it apart and free it up but I would recommend just purchasing an external detergent dispenser. Home Depot carries them for about 15 bucks. They allow you to use soap with high pressure and bypass the always problematic siphon system.

New fill valve streams water out the top nozzle

Hello llettieri,

You did NOT include ANY NOMENCLATURE...
(make, model)

of or relating to your new or old valves...
So all you are going to get is YES...

GENERICALLY... there are SMALL tube
configurations where there is a controlled water
port that is open toward the BACK of the tank...
(other than the main supply)


In every CASE where I have seen them...
The NEW VALVE INCLUDED a hose & clip
to shoot that water down the tank overflow.

Since the toilet is essentially UNUSABLE with that port open...
and your receipt seems to be your only OPTION.

If possible... I would recommend the UPGRADE
as... (in my opinion) it makes for a cleaner & fresher
TOILET BOWL.. (it does cost a wee bit more water).

or ALTERNATIVELY explain why you prefer to
scrub more often... and go for the EXACT VALVE
you previously "enjoyed".

Hope this helped

1983 Chevy Silverado 6.2 liter diesel. Water in fuel

You need to remove this right away. There is a small petcock on the frame or possibly at the spring hanger to siphon the water out with. Simply attach a hose to it and open the valve and siphon the water out until you get pure diesel fuel. Then replace the primary filter on the firewall. It helps to fill it before you reinstall the new filter. Drain the filter into a bucket and check for water in it. If there is you will also have to change the secondary filter on the engine. Then prime the system to bleed the air out. If you get a lot of water you may need to consider dropping the tank and cleaning it as well. On 1983 and newer trucks the light will come on with as little as a quart of water, on older trucks it doesn't come on until there is a gallon.
You may want to look into picking up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330. For $20 it has excellent help and advice on this engine. Hope this helps.

John deere 3800psi pressure washer will not siphon detergent. the water end does fine but cannot get any soap

The only way the washer will draw soap into the line is with either the black tip installed or with no tip in wand at all.There is a ball and spring inside of the pipe that the siphon hose hooks to so when you use the washer with alot or even a little pressure the ball is forced up and blockes off the soap inlet port.So if you use it with no tip in the inlet port is open cause the ball isnt being forced up by back pressure.I hope this makes sense.

Water comes out of detergent drawer

This is inevitably caused by a blockage. The small fabric conditioner compartment in the soap dispenser drawer has a removable plastic cap. This cap fits on the top of a tube which has a hole running through it where the water should siphon through.

When the time comes for the fabric conditioner to be released, cold water enters the small compartment and just washes the conditioner over the top and down the dispenser to the tub. When the water stops flowing, all that is left is the clear water. This water should siphon up the inside of the cap and down the tube.

This tube often gets blocked with the conditioner and if you remove the dispenser drawer and take off the cap you can give the whole thing a good clean out. If the cap is missing, the siphoning will not occur.

To test the function, hold the soap drawer under the tap and allow the water to fill the fabric compartment to overflowing. When you turn off the tap, the remaining water should slowly siphon out of the hole under the cap.

Not dispensing bleach or softner

You could have a clog in the housing underneath the dispenser where the water flows through a hose into the tub.
Pull the dispenser drawer completely out.
There is a tab that needs to be depressed to release the drawer and remove it.
Check the opening at the bottom of the housing just inside the dispenser housing opening to see if a small sock or garment is clogging this opening.
Reach down into this opening to see if an item is inside the hose.
This is the normal issue that will cause water to leak out of the dispenser housing.,wbwdbgswgksbgfwxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxwtwtqtfwk/1/1303472/5961857/image45924img-or.jpg

Wash the dispenser drawer thoroughly with warm water. Make sure that you pull off the siphon covers and wash all siphon holes. This process is described in your owner's manual. Replace the dispenser drawer and try the washer again.

Bosch dishwasher

Good news is, this is unlikely to be expensive.

Need to sort out where it's coming from first.

Find a stopvalve you can use to shut off the water supply to the machine - there's probably one where the dishwasher is connected to the domestic plumbing. If turning this off stops the water coming in, you probably need a new inlet valve. The ones on dishwashers are generally pretty cheap to replace.

If shutting the water off doesn't stop the inflow, then the only place it can be coming from is siphoning back in from the drain. There's supposed to be either an air gap or an anti-siphon valve where the dishwasher's drain hose goes into the domestic drain. If this gets blocked/stuck, then it can cause dirty water to siphon back into the machine. Check and clear as necessary, then run the machine through on the hottest, longest cycle it's got (in the expectation that not all the water that was sucked in from the drain necessarily started out in the dishwasher).
