Question about Craftsman Garden
A brief reminder of how the detergent is mixed may shed some light. There is a vortex with a small feed pipe. The vortex is fed with the water flow and causes a small vacuum in the feed pipe within the Y piece vortex sucking up a measured amount of detergent.
If there is a blockage in the vortex, it will not work.
Check the small detergent feed pipe is clear through the vortex.

SOURCE: Cannot draw soap or cleaning
You first must slide the nozzle forward to the low pressure setting for it to inject any detergent. It will only draw the detergent in low pressure mode. If it still will not draw up the detergent, then the injector may be clogged. It must be throughly flushed with clean water for about 2 minutes after each use, otherwise the detergent will clog the injector. First make sure the filter at the end of the hose is clean. Also clean the orifice at the end of the wand to make sure it is not partially clogged which would prevent it from spraying in low pressure mode. The unit came with a tool for this purpose. Even a small piece of debris will prevent it from entering low pressure mode enough for it to siphon the detergent. If none of this works then more than likely there is dry deterrent clogging the check valve. You will have to remove the part where the plastic low pressure injector hose connects to the pump and clean it out, The ball bearing is more than likely stuck.

The red knob is to regulate the pressure. The soap siphon should be hooked up to the pump at the high pressure outlet and the pressure hose hooks up to it. You do just have to drop the tube into your soap solution but I recommend you dilute the soap down as the siphon usually sucks the solution up fairly fast. The trick to making it work is to use the low pressure, soap tip on your wand. They are black and help fan the water/soap out but give no resistance to the water coming out. If you are using a high pressure tip, usually red, yellow, white or green, there will be too much back pressure in the hose and siphon attachment for it to **** up any solution.
