SOURCE: how to get detergent to feed into Greenworks 1700 psi washer

The only way that it will feed detergent is by using the correct nozzle for the detergent. It's a lower pressure tip which allows the valve for the detergent to open. It's the black tip. It's either that or if it's an older one, there is a twisting wand that controls the pressure and spray pattern, which has to be twisted to the widest pattern with lowest pressure

SOURCE: how to get detergent to feed into Greenworks 1700 psi washer

In addition to the comment above regarding the need to use a low pressure (soap) tip, there's a chance the tanks or the hoses from the tanks to the valve and/or from the valve to the pump is plugged with dried detergent. The easiest way to clean out the hoses, unless you can see the plug with the detergent bottle removed, is to remove the top cover and pull all the hoses and flush them out. Removing the cover is not too bad. There are several recessed screws underneath, including a couple above the wheels that requires removing the wheels and axle.

I have an electric greenworks 1700 psi pressure washer that starts then stops repeatedly how do ya fix it


Sounds like the thermal switch is shutting it down. It is either bad or something is causing the motor to run too hot.

Pressure wand is leaking at the out let end, and pump has a small surge when setting at a idle


Sounds like water is leaking past the shutoff valve on the wand. Check your owners manual parts diagram to see if there is a washer or o-ring to replace.

I need to replace the high pressure hose on my Greenworks 1700 because the one I have has developed a hole after being in storage/no use for a few months. I purchased a replacement hose at Lowe&a


Search Fixya with your question as it was answered last June.

If less than a year old contact the manufacturer. My hose burst (different brand); turns out they got a bad batch of hoses and they replaced the whole unit at no cost.

I let it freeze


the whole washer :)

sorry but the ice can make large damage in stuff like that. Disasseble it and carefully open your eyes :) look for cracks... It may be a sealing, or a whole pump may be broken...

Install high pressure hose. Cannot get shaft of hose fitting to go deep enough into fitting so retaining clip will engage


There are several different configurations for these fittings. If you bought a generic replacement hose, it may have a different fitting than what is on the machine. May have to replace the fitting on the machine, or buy a hose specific to your pressure washer.

Install replacement high pressure hose


If you are replacing the hose because it burst you might contact the manufacturer. Mine, of a different brand, burst and they sent me a new pressure washer saying that it was very difficult to install a new hose. They had a lot of problems with hoses from China.
