Why does water shoot out of my soap inlet

Everytime I start my pressure washer water shoots out of my soap inlet shooting off the hose. The only time it doesn't is if the hose and gun aren't connected. Why is that and how do I fix it?

SOURCE: water shoots out back instead of hose when engine is started

Problem description is very vague. The only thing for sure is that water seems to be coming out at the wrong place. Common problem could be related to improper storage. All water, or as much as possible, should be removed from the pump before cold weather storage. Many pumps are made from cast aluminum, which can easily crack or split from winter storage if enough water remained in the system during freezing weather. If it is an external part, such as the inlet or outlet tube, check the manufacturer for a replacement part, since these are sometimes replaceable. Another possibility could be a loose fitting on the pump. There is also an "O" ring on the connection to the outlet tube on the hose end. Check to make sure it is still there and not broken or crushed. Many hardware stores have "O" ring kits. It would be helpfull if you could pinpoint the source of the leak. Always separate the gun and hose from the pressure washer to drain out any remaining water. Freezing isn't the only problem since you could have hard water that will leave mineral deposits when the water evaporates. This, according to some manufacturers will not be covered by the warrantee so I guess is should be something to avoid. Good Luck.

New LG washer installed yesterday. Getting the IE message. Followed direction on the manual and a few trouble shooting forums. Everything is connected properly and I am still receiving the message.


IE code ... This may help>>> check your water lines make sure the hot and cold water lines are on correctly they may be reversed... If you need to reset ,just simply unplug and hold the start/pause button for a few seconds... Hope this helps !

There is water squirting out of a hole next the pressure hose connection. Is there a missing screw? Or an adjustment to the washer that can be made. There is no pressure because of this leak.


If this hole has threads then it might be the soap inlet. If water is shooting out under pressure you may have an obstruction in the hose/handle. Try removing the hose and running the washer and see if the water flows out the connection. If the hose ends up being the problem a visual inspection and cleaning of all inlets and the handle should clear it.

If the water coming out of the hole is low/tap line pressure then I think your bypass *(or unloader) valve is stuck in the bypass position.

A stuck unloader just needs to be unstuck and lightly cleaned. A light coating of silicon grease wouldnt hurt either!

Get the manual for this pump and see how to open/remove the unloader valve.

My pressure washer is a G 2500 oh n i have no pressure coming out, it turns on but no pressure.


Good news, your engine runs
But your pump may be bad

Here's how to test your pump
Check oil as outlined lower down
Disconnect the washer hose and gun
Connect water hose and turn on water and water should pass straight through the pump
Look for clogs in the hose-end where water hose connects to machine

Turn on machine and see if water shoots out pump
If water shoots out of pump, but no water shoots out of gun, then you may have a 'mud-dobber' wasp clog in your washer line or gun

Look for clogs in the end of each water connection.
Now connect washer hose without the gun, tun on the machine, and see if water shoots out of washer hose
Finally, the gun trigger mechanism may be bad
I don't know which gun you have ... but we replaced guns on our machine now-and-then ... google-search power washer guns for a replacement

Check your pump oil
Pump oil is SAE20 or SAE30 non-detergent motor oil
Pump should be no more than 1/2 full of oil
Use plastic hose to drain pump oil
Do not turn machine on its side or turn machine over or engine oil will run into carburetor

My 1 year old gas powered Husky model HU80432 starts and runs fine but gets no pressure from the wand. Water is running freely through all connections and hoses so there are no obstructions, just no...


Lime/calcium build up in the pump.
Pour a large amount of liquid TSP into the fresh water inlet and let it sit for two or three days, the longer the better.
This is how I fixed my no pressure problem.
Works great now

I have had 3 Karcher pressure washers all experience the same problem and so have two of my neighbors. Our area has very hard water and it causes problems with the washer not bringing up the pressure when...


If your water is that hard (and it appears it is) WD40 will NOT solve the problem. You should look into a water softener. However, chances are that a small, inexpensive model will not have the flow capacity required for a pressure washer. You'll likely need to look at a larger, whole-house model.

Use vinegar to through the machine's "soap" dispenser to break up the hard water deposits or a heavier solvent such as CLR which is available at most retail outlets.

F20 error


troubleshooting with the F20code what it says in the trouble shooting section:

Ff20 (water inlet problem, no water or insufficient water supply)

Select stop twice to cancel the cycle. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

Check the following:

Are water faucets completely turned on?

Are screens at inlet hose connection to washer clogged?

Are water inlet hoses kinked?

Are water inlet hoses frozen?

Plug in washer. Re select cycle and press start.

Troy-bilt 2200 psi pressure washer


I have a Troybilt Model 2200 PSI Pressure Washer in which I have used only 2 times in the past 2 1/2 years. Went to use it this past weekend and the pump in not working. Water shoots out of the side. I bought this brand and model as I thought Troybilt was suppose to be so good. Went back to where it was purchased and had no success but to say I could buy another pump or take it in to be repaired. I believe that this power washer should be replaced at no charge. 2 uses does not constitute a few hundreds of dollars.
Have you to heard anything concerning pump problems on this particular model? Thanks for any advice. .

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,

Kenmore He2 shoots out water from the detergent compartment


After searching the internet we discovered that if you slide your fingers in between the metal drum and rubber seal under the soap dispenser area you may find the problem. We had a sock blocking the water inlet. Problem solved! This machine is going to give us a lot of headaches but thanks to the internet we may be able to continue to save money fixing it ourselves.

FYI, I find if you leave the door open a crack after each wash... you avoid the mold smell as well!
