The squeegee needs to be replaced. Mine made a horrible noise, which I found I could fix by trimming the worn edge of the squeegee. This, of course, reduced the suction. I found a replacement part on Ebay, but you can also find them on Hoover.com
There are no belts. If it makes the noise with the brush assembly removed the motor drive assembly is bad. It ia a complete assembly that can easily be replace by a repairman or ypouself if you are cleaver with tools. Good luck.

Your collection canister may not be positioned tight enough in its place ment site. Tip machine back using foot pedal (as if you were going tio start using machine to clean) Insert collection canister (bottom container, then insert top canister with solution. The two canisters must be flush with machine side seams and must sit in position tightly. This is sometimes very tricky and may take a little elbow grease to make it click into place. Hope this helps
First make sure that you are getting suction from the bottom of the
machine. Most of the time the squeegee is worn out which does not allow
it to pick up the water like it use to. Turn over the machine and
the squeegee. If it looks worn or bent then it may be time to replace
it. You may also consider replacing the filter. These are the two most
common parts that wear out.

I'll answer last question first. Your floormate has a 1 year warranty. And should be taken in for repair.
Your issue of not picking up water, is related to suction and getting the dirty water to the recovery tank. check for obstruction in the nozzle, check the filter for debris clogging. If you have an issue with this dealer I would call customer support.
The brushes are not designed to scub the floor, they only lightly touch the floor. Make sure the front nozzle is put on correcdtly. Make sure your filter is dry and clean. I wet filter will give poor suction down to the nozzel. Down load the manuel at Hoover.com. The model is located on the back of the unit. H3000, or H3010
There is a little post in the back where you insert the top solution/water tank, if you put the tank in incorrectly, (i.e., shoved it in, instead of putting it in at an angle, bottom first) there is a chance you broke it or bent it backwards. My mother broke mine, i've got the post but don't know the part, without that post inserted into the tank the water will not come out.

Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover Floormate H3000 Upright Wet/Dry Vacuum. You can down load the owner manual from the Hoover website www.hoover.com . It looks like the one of the holding or recovery tanks my not be in place, leaking, cracked or damaged, or the clear tube is leaking and needs replacing. I looked 2 the owner’s manual and it does not show the clear tube but the vacuum does come apart and just back track the clear tube and mark the screws when you disassemble the unit. Other wise , please call the factory or a local Hoover warranty station in your area. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://www.hoover.com Telephone Contact our Customer Service Department at 1.330.499.9499 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 7 p.m. EST Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.
