Several things to check, soap only works with low pressure tip installed, are you using correct tip? second issue is on bottom of soap tanks some have a small valve , is it open? is the tube blocked with dry soap or contamination, flusk it with water to be sure.

SOURCE: It will not dispense the soap.

You need to adjust the nozzle on the end of the lance so the machine will draw chemical at low pressure.

SOURCE: I have a Troy-Bilt pressure washer #020344. When

There is a check ball and spring within the soap dispenser that may be worn or lost. Easy fix however. If the parts are there and installed correctly, seat may be worn. If parts are missing or valve worn out, just plug the valve and purchase an aftermarket dispenser to install in the line between the pump and hose (not expensive and ez to do. )
good luck

Can't get soap to feed into system


I have a SIMONIZ S2000 electric. I bought the unit about 8 weeks ago used it once. On the second use yesterday the unit didn't work as well, the pressure seemed only a bit better than hose pressure and soap did not dispense at any pressure. SO.... after much thought I turned the hose/tap pressure down so that I only got about 2-3 GPM instead of the typical 5-6GPM normally coming out of my hose....... it worked! Soap dispenses and spay is way better! It seems that if if the inlet hose pressure is high the pump doesn't work as well... go figure.

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.

I have a John Deere AC2600Gh power washer and I can't get the soap to work everything else works great it just won't **** the soap up when I am pressure washing I know that it must be something simple to...


Soap will only siphon into hose if there isnt any pressure in the hose attached to the wand.Remove tip from wand and see if it draws soap into hose,back pressure in wand hose will cause the spring and ball to seat/close off the inlet line for the soap otherwise water would blow out of soap line.

The motor works fine , no pressure out of hte hose, could it be the hose or pump, how do I trouble shoot. Also, how do I draw soap from a bottle to shoot out of the washer onto the house?


Since you did not mention the pump brand or type. I will just assume it to be a pressure washer, complete
with gun. The pump comes two suction hoses. One for the water supply and one for the soap bottle or pail There is pressure adjuster right at the pump near where the hose is connected. You can adjust to higher pressure by turning it clockwise. You can adjust the nozzle spray pattern by turning it. However, if your pump comes with only one set of suction hose. Then, it is designed to get the water
supply from the faucet with hose bib. The only one
set of hose is for the soap bottle or pail. It will **** the soap once the nozzle spray is opened.
hose,

Ryobi 3000 psi pressure washer detergent injector


Most detergent injectors work by the venturi system. That is that the detergent is drawn into the stream by the forward flow of the water thru a very narrow port after the water passes thru the pump. This system works best when the pressure at the tip of the wand is low. Trying using a very large tip to draw in and apply the detergent, then remove injector and rinse with high pressure. Not good for the pump but to apply soap reliably under high pressure the soap needs to be injected through the intake of the pump. enjoy
