Pressure washer not siphoning detergent

My Briggs 1950 PSI washer is not picking any fluid up thru the injection hose. I have the nozzle on low pressure, but it will not siphon anything.

It has worked in the past, not sure what's wrong. How do I go about trouble shooting this? Thanks.

Check the fitting where the siphon hose connects to the pump. You may be able to remove it and clean it out.

not a fix but....

I never use the siphon feature on a PWer. IMO it's neither effective or good for the pump. I always apply the cleaning agent with a pump up garden sprayer and use the PWer for rinsing.

I agree. Especially when using bleach.
