I get no water pressure when I connect detergent bottle. Why?


Many pressure washers only use detergent with the low pressure head. Check the manual for your model.

I need to know where to put detergent in the pressure washer I have no model number


These units come with a detergent bottle that attaches to the spray wand. The manual describes what detergents to use and the attachment reduces the pressure and siphons the right amount of detergent from the container. It is not a good idea to try to run detergent through the pump.
Here is a link to the operating manual for a similar pressure washer.

How to repair non-functioning detergent bottle


Are you really sure it's not working? Most of these only dispense detergent when the lowest pressure spray head is attached. If that's not the problem then the next most likely thing to check for is a blockage in the tubing that connects your detergent bottle to the main unit. If this was not fully rinsed out after the last time it was used, any residual detergent remaining in the line will often solidify which results in blocking the line. Good luck

Don't know how to get detergent into the ultimate x pressure washer (1500psi)


To the right of the Brass fitting where your garden hose attaches there is a small round plastic cover piece, pull on that and it will pull out a clear tube with it which goes into any container containing your detergent, it will pull the detergent as you use the pressure washer. Push the tube back in after you are done using it. You can also buy a replacement detergent bottle for other pressure washers if you wanted to.

It is only one year old and only been used last summer when i got it out this spring the detergent will not dispense


take off clear tube that goes into solution jug(where soap goes),make sure it is clear(water passes thru it easily) use a soda bottle- fill with vinegar- reattach hose and put other end in soda bottle- if this doesn't work that valve in the sprayer itself is gummed up- sometimes using HOT water feed sprayer will clear an internal plug

I have a detergent tank and cant seem to get detergent to come out what do I need to do?


Dear bug4222,
I have never worked on your type of machine. But generally this is what you do. Disconect the pipe from the inlet to the machine. Attach another pipe and put the other end in a bottle of water. Start machine and on low pressure see if the machine sucks water from the bottle. If this does not happen, try to service the inlet part at the machine. This usually it will have a ball-bearing as a non-return valve. This non-return valve sometimes gets stuck. If you see that you have solved the fault in the non-return valve, attach the detergent tank as it was, but instead of detergent, use water. You should always use low pressure. If all is OK, try some detergent. Always remember that after using detergent, always pass clear water from the detergent tank. If you leave detergent in the system, this will cause problems.
Regards,
Fultech.

B302 - unable to start detergent flowing - How should it work?


It will only pick up detergent if you use a low pressure detergent nozzle - or no nozzle at all. It also takes a while for the detergent to get to the nozzle.
