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!

Bissell carpet shampooer model 9200-9 that is not dispensing cleaning solution


I had the same problem with my Bissell carpet cleaner. I tried all the recommendations but nothing worked. After reading all the blogs, I discovered that many people had the same problem. Fortunately, I still had the receipt from Costco which they honored and gave me a full refund. I was ready to throw it in the trash.

Will not dry or suck up water at all...BRAND NEW


If it's brand new your best bet might be taking it to a Hoover service center. That'll have a year warranty on it so the fix would be free.

Ensure the Dirt Devil is connected to a working power supply if it does not turn on or operate. Check the fuse or breaker and replace or reset as necessary.

  • 2 Empty the dirty water tank if there is little or no suction. Turn off the Dirt Devil and grab the top of the dirty water tank. Push on the latch to release the tank and pull the tank off the base. Remove the lid and empty the dirty water into a sink. Replace the cap and hook the front of the tank onto the machine base. Hook the nozzle on the base so that the nozzle is level with the cleaner base. Push the back of the dirty water tank down and into position.


  • 3 Check the dirty water tank and empty as necessary if there is water leaking from the cleaner. Open the latch on the top of the solution reservoir and pull the reservoir forward. Fill with Dirt Devil brand cleaner to the fill mark. Fill the rest of the reservoir with hot water and close the cap. Replace on the base unit.
  • 4 Make sure the solution reservoir is seated firmly in the base unit if there is no cleaning solution dispensing from the unit. Fill the solution tank with cleaner and water if the level is low.
  • 5 Examine the hose and nozzles for possible obstructions if the carpet cleaner does not seem to be operating correctly. Remove any blockages.

    Suds not coming out


    do you have the dial set to presoak ? Clean? or Rinse?
    make sure the container for the soap is full and is popped into place correctly.

    also... if the water canister is empty or the dirty water container is full it will stop sucking up the water :)

    How do you clean out the SteamVac...for example..the area where the water is sucked back through is very dirty...where it is visible from the outside


    The easiest way is to rake the debris out with a piece of wire. More difficult, but better, is to remove the screws that hold the "wondow" on and clean. Some disassembly required! We see a lot of posts for cleaners that are stopped up. I know you didn't ask, but it's a really, really good idea to run a tankful of just plain hot water through the main dispenser and the attachment dispenser before you put the machine away. It will keep your dispensing lines free of soap that will plug it up, and cleans the soap out of the pickup side as well.

    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

    Solution tank does not dispense--recovery tank still sucks up dirty water from tile floor on screen porch. I applied cleaner manually with a scrub brush and sucked it up with the hoover steam vac deluxe.


    Check to see if the when you squeeze the trigger, the rod is hitting the reservior asm(tank sits on). If not then there is a problem inside the handle and the rod. If it is hitting, then the reservior asm. is bad. Also make sure fluid is coming out of the tank when you push the vavle in at the bottom of the tank.
