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

How do i prime the pump on the soaper or chemical dispenser on my troy built 2550 psi pressure washer?


There is no need to prime. But you do need to use the black spray nozzle to get soap to siphon out.
if that doesn't solve the problem let me know

2600 PSI Pressure washer will not draw detergent up


I posted an answer to no soap on the Karcher Factory-Reconditioned 2,600 PSI 2.3 GPM Gas Pressure Washer G 2600 VHR. Same machine I suppose, but use the black 65 l degree low pressure nozzle.
It's in the manual , I missed it and had a hell of a time trying to figure it out. If that doesn't work check the check valve on the pump(Where the soap hose is) , see if it's gummed up.

Be careful taking it off there's a spring and ball bearing in there.

The only filter on the detergent pickup is usually at the end of the hose you drop into the detergent. To clean the line and syphon attachment only requires a little pressurized air to blow out any debris that may be in the line. Make sure you are using the black, soap tip on the pressure gun when trying to use the detergent syphon system. If you are using any of the high pressure tips there will be too much back pressure in the line for the syphon to work.

Cant get my soap dispenser hose working on my karcher winner 10, any suggestion?, lost my instructions manual so dont know weather i need to be doing anything for it!


If you have not yet found a solution, then here are some steps to take.
1. The soap dispenser only works on low pressure!!!!!!! So you have to REMOVE the high pressure Sprayer so that all you use is the Trigger Gun without the Extender.
2. Pull out the thin Plastic Hose with the filter attached in the end, and insert into your container of detergent.
It will only splatter the detergent over the area you want to clean, so you will then need to REATTACH the SPRAYER into the hand gun to work with the soap to lather, clean and spray of till clean.
This seems to be the way the system works on this model......also known as K2.36M (AU) in Australia or (EU) in Europe on the Karcher.com.au site then Service then Manuals. or on the link below.
Hope this helps any of you who has misplaced their Owners Manual just like I did and had a great problem trying to find a link as Karcher doesn't recognize the Model No: as Winner 10 or 11.

Cheers, Luke

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.

Soap doesn't dispense


There are different tips, In order for the unit to siphon the soap you need to use the tip that is for detergent. Its basically a tip that does not produce a high pressure it's more or less a soaker. Unit won't siphon under pressure. I hope this answer your question please rate the answer if it was helpful. Good Luck and have a great day. Jeff

Dear johnny_river,
In general there are many causes why soap is not sucked. In a domestic and various other machines the soap is only sucked in low pressure. So one thing you can try is remove the nozzle or the complete lance from your gun. This will give a low pressure. If you attach a pipe directly to the machine soap inlet, and soap is not sucked, than the soap valve is "stuck closed" with soap. It is important that one must work with fresh water after using soap. This to flash the system from any soap left. So in a few words attach a pipe directly to the nipple at the machine and use low pressure. Important , you do not have to use soap to test....use fresh water. If this works( which it should)...than service the flow control tap or change it altogether.

Dear Pajodi,
I just came across your problem. I have just joined FIXYA, and solved various Karcher problems. First of all with all respect, the shop from where you bought the machine, must have told you all necessary instructions to operate your machine.
Now the soap always works on low pressure. So if you have a variable lance, turn it to low pressure. You can also remove the lance, and the soap will surely starts to work. With turbo lances, the soap system does not work. This concludes that the soap does not work when high pressure is used. Bigger machines do spray soap at high and low pressures. But these have regulating knobs, to swith off and on, the soap supply.
Regards,
MG.
