SOURCE: Will not draw soap solution
Follow the pipe back to the pump and you will find a ball and spring inside.This could well be stuck closed if it has been stored for some time. Oil this part and it should draw soap again.

SOURCE: karcher 2.56 keeps pulsing on and off whenever high pressure nozzle is attached. I have tried different nozzles and same thing is happening. when i press the lance without any attachment it works fine
If this PW has never worked properly -- it is possible that the seller sent the wrong pressure nozzles. All pressure washers have nozzles that are matched to the flow-rate and pressure of the machine. If they sent Nozzles that were really supposed to be for a machine of lower flow rate (smaller orifice nozzle) this would cause exactly the problem as you are describing it. This is because the electric motor does not have sufficient horse power to force the xxGPM out the smaller hole, so the motor surges and stalls, repeatedly.
Another possibility: Try a different electrical plug outlet. It is possible that the motor is not able to draw enough current from your plug. Sometimes older house plugs, because of the way they are installed, will not provide a good, solid 15 amp circuit like it should. As the motor comes under a load (i.e., when you install pressure nozzle) it draws more current to feed the work. So try a different plug and be sure it's on one of your circuits that is not loaded with other household items like the refrigerator, microwave oven, etc. The little washer all by itself will pull close to 15 amps, which is the max capacity of older home circuits.
Last, Look for the unloader valve. This is device that allows the water to go into a by-pass loop when the trigger is not pulled. It sounds like the unloader could be out of adjustment. Counter-clockwise will lighten the spring / Clockwise will tighten the spring. Toy with different adjustments -- ccw 1 complete revolution/test for improvement. Repeat. (it should have a plastic handle on top of it that can turn either direction. But look at it first, as there may be a "set" nut holding in one place.)
