If I may! In most cases the heater is clogged. It might be clogged with soap that has harden over time. You need to take the handle apart. You will see a metal box(thats the heater) besides the wires there are two tubes connected to the heater. remove the tubes but label or watch which tube goes where. now turn the heater upside down. there are 6 screws on the side and 1 in the middle. remove them carefully. the 6 on the side have a small gaskets under them..you don't want to lose them. the 1 in the middle has no gasket, now the bottom plate of the heater can be taken off (there is a gasket with that plate ...be careful . you will now see the long channels inside the heater and need to clean it. the holes where the tubes where connected have to be clean also but carefully. the metal is soft.so it bends. now put it all back. hope this helps. if you want to keep this from happening.the best way is to run clear water after you are done.this will remove any soap in the machine which will harden after the machine drys out. hope I helped .

and to mr. reddevil6 I am learning lots from you. Thanks

SOURCE: hoover will not suck carpet shampooer

no solution, hoover is by far the most rediculous machinery... it says its as easy as filling it up and using it as a vacuum.. but it doesnt show how the hell you fill it up, there are two possible places where water and solution obviously enters and leaves... yet niether of them open up for fluids to be put in
and of course the instructions dont tell you how to fill it up
no wonder it has only a 30 day money back "guarentee"
because it takes 30 days for the buyer to realize that it doesnt work
so you can spend 300 on this faulty product.. or spend 300 on something that wont infieriate you
have fun

You put hot tap water (never boil water) into the clear bag through an opened hole in the canister. The dirty water will be correct outside of the bag. You remove the dirty water by open the valve at the bottom of the canister.

good luck

SOURCE: not sucking up water

Hi.  I had the same problem.  After looking at the manual I went back and made sure the canister was making a proper seal.  That fixed the problem.  Make sure when you put the top back on the canister (that holds the dirty water), that you place the two front hinges in  place first and then snap the center clap on the back of the top.  This will give you a proper seal for suction. (My two front hinges weren't fitting correctly.)
Good luck!

SOURCE: 9200 Bissell carpet cleaner, water will NOT dispense

The water or soap line might be clogged, or something is broken. If it is just the upright part and not the handle, then its a solenoid, if its both then either the pump motor or the pump is not working.

Here is a list of parts.

Hope this helps.

Detergent doesn't dispense.


Water will clean carpets but not very well. For the best results don't put any cleanser in your machine. Soap can clogged up the lines in your machine. When you have soap dispensed or or in the water in your machine you are squirting it onto the carpet and sucking it back up at the same time...the soap and water isn't on the carpet long enough to clean well unless you keep going over the same area many times. To clean better it's really important to vacuum thoroughly going slowly in multiple directions to get as much dry, gritty soil and hair and dust out as possible, it's easy to get these soils out when the carpet is dry if your vacuum is working properly. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
Get a spray bottle or sprayer and put hot tap water in it, add the cleaning solution to the hot water and spray enough on the carpets to get the face fibers damp...let the hot water solution sit on the carpets 5 or 10 minutes and then use your machine to clean and rinse the soap, water and loosened soils from the carpet fibers. Repeat if necessary. Your carpets will be cleaner because you allowed adequate dwell time for the soap and water to work on the sticky greasy soils attached to the carpet fibers and stay clean longer because the soap is rinsed out of the carpets. Your carpet cleaning machine will last longer too because the water lines, pumps, spray jets, heaters, etc can't get clogged with soap gunk if you don't put soap in it. The method I'm describing is how the best professional carpet cleaners clean carpets. Hiring a quality carpet cleaner cost more up front but the carpets may stay clean two or three times longer, saving a lot of money in the long run. If you clean your carpets using this dual process method you may do a better job with a small portable home or rented cleaner than hiring the average carpet cleaning professional who is trying to give you the lowest price.

My oreck steemer carpet cleaner xls465q wont dispense water or shampoo


You seem to have a clog in your pump. It is possible that left over soap and minerals from your water have brought your machine to a stop. I would go into the pump it self , and clean out any obstructions, then check all your feed lines for the same. I believe that going into your pump and cleaning inside will solve your problem. Take your time. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

The Bissell won't spray any carpet cleaner but it is still sucking up water.


If it doesn't dispense water then that means that you need to replace the pump belt. Here is a link to the belt you nee and the manual:

My cleaner is not dispensing the shampoo solution. Still sucks up the dirty water that I manually applied with a scrub brush. I use this on my tiled screen porch floor and it has worked great many times.
