Why would there be a clicking sound from the soap dispenser?

Good morning Sandra: Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. I wanted to think about this first and today I did my laundry. The clicking sound can be a few things. The question is, is this normal? There are solenoids near the soap dispenser that control the movement of water. Water is flushed through the soap tray at various times during the washing process. The first time to pick up pre wash soap. The second is to pick up the wash soap. The third time the bleach and finally the softener. The machine will go through these steps even if you do not have any of the above mentioned chemicals in the tray. Each one of the sections requires a separate actuator. Some may be closing while others are opening. If your machine seams to be working fine (your soap, bleach, pre wash soap and fabric softener) are gone at the end of the wash cycle then I would not be concerned. If the clicking seams to be constant during the wash cycle and this seams to be a new phenomena. You might consider calling a tech, but I would not be in a hurry to fix something that is not broken.
Best of Luck

The cleaning solution is not spraying out of my pressure washer.

On pressure washers with cleaning solution pick-up hoses you have to make sure you are using the black, low pressure, soap tip. If you are using the high pressure tips, red, yellow, white or green, there will be too much back pressure at the pick-up tube for it to work properly. If you are using the soap tip, check that the pick-up tube and filter are clean.

It will not **** in cleaner soap

Your heading is for chain saws but going by your problem I'll assume you are having problems with your pressure washer. The most likely reason your washer won't draw the soap into the water stream is you are using one of the high pressure tips, usually red, white or yellow. The only way the soap system will work is if you use the low pressure, soap tip which is black. Another thing to check is the soap line and pickup filter to make sure they are clear and allow the solution to be picked up.

Pressure Washer Troy Bilt 2700 PSI 2.3 GPM will not pick up soap. I am using the black tip low pressure head and it still does not pick up the detergent. Any recommendations?

Take the small soap line off and make sure you can blow air through. Where the line attaches to the soap container make sure the hole is clear if not take a streight pin and make sure the pin goes in the hole easily.

Soap dispenser doesn't pick up soap

Make sure the clear tube is inserted into the pump head properly.Make sure the tube is not kinked. try filling the bottle full of water and try pumping the water out first. Sometimes the dispenser gets an air lock and takes a bit of continuous pumping to get it to work

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.
