Hi - You're not trying to use the gun safety lock to keep the trigger on are you? I know how it sounds but I have to ask. This feature is just meant to act as a safety so that the trigger can not be accidentaly engaged. You are supposed to lose pressure when you let go of the trigger.

You most likely need to set your valve clearances. If it is hard to pull over or the recoil snaps back after starting your valves need to be set for sure. This may not be the entire problem but it is a good start. Also change the spark plug, a bad plug will cause odd problems and is too cheap not to eliminate as a source. In addition check your fuel, pour a little out into a white container (I like spray paint can caps for this) and look at the color. If it is yellow to orange it is bad. You can pour it into you car, the car electronic sensors will compinsate for it quality but a small engine can't. Use a NGK BP6ES or BPR6ES plug.
You need:
Feeler gages
10mm open end wrench
14mm open end wrench
1 long shaft screw driver or rod
1 spark plug socket and ratchet

Remove the spark plug and the valve cover. Pull the recoil over slowly until the intake valve opens (intake is closes to the carb and it will go down when it opens). Now put your long screwdrive down the spark plug hole. Slow pull the engine over until the screwdriver handle is at it highest point, this is top dead center. It may take a few attempts. Now check your valve clearance between the rockers and the top of the valve. The intake should be .006 and the exhaust .008, both can be +/- .001. To adjust: hold the large nut with the 14mm then loosen the small one with the 10mm. Lefty loosey. Now turn your large nut until you get the correct setting and then tighten the small one the lock it in. It may take a few attempts and alway reverify your setting after you lock it down. Once done, find top dead center again and reverify. Now your valves are set.

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

Why won't the cleaning solution come out of the hose for Husqvarna 3100 PSI 2.8 GPM Gas Pressure Washer 020490?


Most people I run into with this problem are trying to get the cleaning solution to work with one of the high pressure tips, usually red, green, white or yellow. The only way to make the machine use the cleaning solution is with the low pressure, soap tip, usually black. With the high pressure tips there is too much back pressure for the solution to be picked up and mixed into the water stream.

I have a 2750 PSI pressure washer with a 6.5 hp Honda engine. The soap mixer will not work. Any ideas? Please advise Tahnks


Check the draw tube and soap inlet for a clog. The soap mixer works on siphon action so an obstruction is pretty much all that can go wrong with it.

Are you putting the soap nozzle on the end? Either that or depending on what type of nozzle you have, some times you pull out or push in the nozzle to switch it to soap.

There has to be no pressure to draw the soap, so you either have to put in the soap nozzle in, or if it has an adjustable end, set it to soap by pushing or pulling.

You cannot spray high pressure with soap unless your unit is equipped with another siphon hose for pressure soap.
