The motor is shot.they cant handle water. you are looking at a very expensive repair. miele parts are about the most expensive around. next time look at a panasonic, or riccar. or for a lifetime vac, look at the Metropolitan, made in the USA(around $400)

    Throw it away - water would have corroded the insulation and/or motor windings - resulting in a live short. Not worth repairing or risking your life with it. Buy a new vacuum.

It wont suck the water back up


You are not suppose to suck water with an ordinary vacuum. If its a shop vac yes. Otherwise you will ruin it.

Hoover brush and wash instruction manual


Hi there! To prepare for cleaning, put the solution and water in the top tank. While cleaning, all the dirty water gets sucked into the bottom tank. To clean squeeze trigger to release cleaning solution and slowly push carpet cleaner forward, this equals one wet stroke. Continue to squeeze trigger and slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you (second wet stroke). Release trigger and slowly push carpet cleaner forward over area just sprayed with solution (dry stroke). Then slowly pull carpet cleaner back toward you without squeezing trigger (dry stroke). To avoid saturating the carpet don't do more than 4 wet strokes over one area. Always end with dry strokes. Here is a link to view the instruction manual if needed.

Is it possible to vacume water with the miele slaris turbo plus?


I wouldn\'t attempt that unless it says you can do that in the manual. Use a steam cleaner. They are made to suck up water.

Steam coming out of Miele S7000 upright vacuum cleaner


There is no steam generator on your Miele. It can only be smoke or dust. Are you certain it is steam. If you have sucked up water the motor could be in danger of shorting out.

Vacuum sucked up a sock through the hose- now it's clogged how do I fix it upright vacuum


Best thing you can try is getting a "snake" like for unclogging water pipes. Start at where it went in, the hose is behind the brush roll, just off to one side. Gently push the snake in until you feel the scock and twist the snake while pulling it out; if nothing comes out after a few attempts, try a reverse approach by removing the rear parallelogram looking port on the back rear of the vacuum. There are 2 plastic screws which only have to make about a quarter turn. Gently lift the cover off the port and try the snake down the left channel.

My husband sucked up part of a rug. The belt didn't shut off like I thought it was supposed to. Now there is a funny loud hum when the brush is running. There are also some fuzzy disc-like things around...


See if you can take the brush assembly off. There should be a plate and 2 screws. One on each side. You can lift out the brush and get all of the strings and such off of the roller brush. You might have to go a little deeper with it open and see if anything got sucked up the vent way.
