You Have a Clogged Nozzle or Hose

This can be easily remedied by taking a quick look at the screen – if it`s caked with crud, simply remove it and give it (and the area around it) a good cleaning. You may also want to check the pressure washer pump inlet screens and filters while you`re at it.

make sure the detergent container is full check all connections if the detergent is too thick diluted. make sure the adjustable nozzle is in low pressure mode if it is in high pressure mode it will not allow detergent to pass if you have checked all of these things in the detergent.
Most likely you`ve either overloaded the washing machine, used the wrong type of detergent, or used too much detergent. Try putting in fewer clothes, switching up your detergent, or using less detergent to see if these solutions alleviate your soapy clothes problem.
If you are trying to use your soap dispenser and the trigger stays depressed and doesn`t let you pump the dispenser the spring in the pump mechanism may be jammed. You can unscrew the pump and try to get to the spring. If you cannot get to the spring you will most likely need to replace the pump.
Step 2: Choose a pressure washer safe detergent. If you are using soap that is thick (thicker than water itself), you will need to dilute it with water. If you choose a detergent that is pressure washer safe, thinning should not be required.
The detergent held in the tank is injected into the pump with the water, then the two are pressurized simultaneously before being released through the spray gun. Detergent tanks are fine for some cleaning solutions, but others should not be run through your pressure washer as they could damage it.
Infrared sensors detect infrared energy that is emitted by one`s body heat. When hands are placed in the proximity of the sensor, the infrared energy quickly fluctuates. This fluctuation triggers the pump to activate and dispense the designated amount of soap.
To clean the pump, simply flush your pump with warm water and a bit of vinegar. For stubborn clogs, use a bit more vinegar ; a toothpick may come in handy. Allow it to dry thoroughly before adding soap to the dispenser. It is recommended to flush your pump with warm water once a month ; or each fill up.

Mower won’t start
ANSWER : This may sound stupid but don’t mean it to…
Have you tried with the choke all the way open? Do you have an automatic cruise? Is the right (correct) pedal being pushed in? These will affect if it starts or not. Also if your drive belt or one of the other belts not being tight enough will affect if it starts or just turns over. Not too many things can stope it from starting with new/good battery AND if its getting gas. Try cleaning your gas line and obviously making sure there is no obstruction around or near your blade, if it does start with blade engaged that is :))
If it doesn’t start with blade engaged, well make sure it’s in neutral. Mine won’t start in reverse but will in forward or neutral.

Hope it helps.

My mower will start but won't stay running – Toro LX466 22HP Lawn Tractor 13RT61RH244
ANSWER : I am going to respond 2 times to this post. The first reply will be generic things to check.
First off check the oil level and make sure it is serviced to full.
If your having a lack of fuel (runing lean) you will need to check fuel flow at the carb fuel mainfold. It should fill a spray paint can lid in less than 10 seconds but teting flow rated of the main fuel line. If you have poor flow here… you need to check the fuel filter and the fuel tank outlet port for obstructions.

Good Fuel flow still shutting off…. remove the carb float bow and clean the debris from the bow’ and the treaded area where the fuel solenoid mounts Additionally you will have to again remove the main fuel line and spray carb cleaner in the float needle area to flush out any debris through the fuel hose connection.

For the second response I need to know which engine is installed on your mower by MODEL number if you can locate it. (there are 3 engines) At least try to find the engine model number. If you can not locate it Brand and HP of the engine (I assume 22 hp) Thanks for choosing FixYa,
