Question about Bissell 9500 ProHeat 2X CleanShot Upright Deep Cleaner, Red Berends Vacuum
How do i get my bissell to release water it was fine and now its not working its like its clogged
I had this problem, too. My machine is only a year old, so I was hoping it wasn't the pump already. I called the help line, and surprise - no help. They recommended a fix-it place, but the fix-it guy wouldn't help me over the phone. So I fiddled around with it and found the problem - the plug thingy underneath the main tank. The spring mechanism inside it was stuck, preventing any water from going thru it.
Lift out the main tank in the front and bring it to the sink. Feel inside the plug underneath. While holding the tank upright over the sink, push inside the plug. Water should squirt out the bottom of the plug. If it doesn't, turn the tank over, unscrew the plug, and try pushing the inside of it. It is spring-loaded like a ball-point pen. When I pushed the inside of the plug a few times, screwed it back in, and then put the tank on again, the machine worked like new. If your plug doesn't spring, maybe it needs to be cleaned out or replaced. If a new plug is needed, it probably doesn't cost as much as bringing it in for service. It's a small, simple part, and can probably be ordered online. Good luck!

Earlier someone said to inspect the tank plug, and when inspecting this tank plug make sure the large red gasket is on the tank end of the nipple and not on the receiving end on the chasis.
I had a very similiar problem and spent about 4 hours troubleshooting it, I thought it was a pump or the lines. Check the gaskets, they are the easiest thing and the most probable cause.

Try cleaning the two red spray nozzles under the tank. You may have to disconnect the small hose from each and use a small wire. Both mine were clogged...Good Luck
