I could be that the rubber washer that is on the piece that the hose screws on to is dried out. Try replacing it. Any outdoor products store would have it.

I have a K5.140 It has an intermitant fault, more fault than clear these days, unit is just over 1 years old, Problem is No power to motor, water pressure Good, Power Supply ON, guess there is a water...


Most likely the hose pipe has nothing to do with the problem. Most likely is a loose connection and as time goes by the connection gets looser, which causes failure rate to increase. Once until is on, the power flowing through the loose connection helps keeps it connected. Open the unit and wiggle this and that until to can isolate the actual cause of the problem. Try not to shock yourself.

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

My F7458-900 leaks water when using upholstery tools I do have good suction, but water comes out fast on the bottom of machine.


This sounds like the hose connection valve is bad. The part is about $12 -15. I would take it into a qualified repair shop for repair. This type of repair is worth it.

Bissel proheat is not sucking up water


There is a oblong black seal that sits where the tank lip and the clear noozle window come together, is it there. Also make sure the filter in the tank lid is clean.

Wont heat up


I know that Karchers steam cleaners have had issues with the thermal overload. I have repaired Karcher machines that got turned on with no to little water in the tank and it would heat up really fast and trip the thermal overload. The thermal overload is to reset it self when it cools down but the problem has been the thermal overloads get stuck and dont reset. When they stick, they will give the same signs you have said. In those cases the thermal overload has needed replaced. The thermal overload did its job to trip, but it fails when reseting. I understand you don't want to throw more money into it, but that is the only thing you can do. You can get the part and do it your self, but they are tricky machines to get into and you dont want to break something trying to get in. Hope this helped.
