You have to lower the pressure at the lance for the detergent to be drawn into the hose. It works on a venturi principle.
on the lance you will have to twist or pull back the end for it to go into low pressure mode.

the easiest way to check it is working is to take out the lance extension , the bit that fits into the trigger on a bayonet fitting. run the machine and see if it then draws in detergent.

If it doesnt draw detergent then look to see if there is a detergent valve fitted to the filter that goes into the bottle and check that it is fully open. sometimes ther is a non return valve fitted into the filter too.
it could be that this non return valve has stuck. A poke with a bit of stiff wire should free it off its seat if it is that problem.

hope this helps a little

Squiggly lines are sign of nozzles being partially clogged. Try using a needle to clear nozzles. You will need to remove the nozzles to do this. When re-installing the nozzles make sure they are in line with the pressure bar.

My karcher pressure washer has lost its water power


I have the same problem. With mine I have to remove the tip that I am using then pull the trigger and then replace the tip and pull and pressure should return. I believe that one of my valves is sticking causing me to reprime the pump frequently. I am trying to clean or replace my valves to fix the problem.

I hope this helps.

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.

How can I start the soap syphon feature on the Karcher Model 210 - 1200 PSI unit ? Does the line need to be primed ?


If there is a check valve in the little line that you put into your soap tank, it doesn't need primed. I have very large 5000 psi units and have enough suction without one. If you can't get it going, you can always remove the hose end near the pressure washer end and fill it by immersing the tubing in the soap, but that shouldn't be necessary. Sometimes the little fitting with the check valve in the bottom get plugged up as well, so that might be your problem. Hope this helps you, Rick
