Not sucking up dirty water
Sounds like the suction motor is not working correctly. Either clogged with dirt or objects or it is failing.
Check this first:
Not suctioning properly, first check the motor duct gasket. To check
this, first remove the tank and place your hand over the rubber square
If your machine does have suction at the duct, continue to check the following:
Ensure the Ready Tools Dial is set to the appropriate setting (Floor Cleaning or Hose Attachments).
Remove the tank from the machine and ensure the tank lid is attached
properly. The front window must first hook onto the lip of the bottom
of the tank and then drape over the tank. Latch the bottom tank to the
top tank lid. THIS LID CANNOT BE
ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE TANK IS NOT
REMOVED FROM THE MACHINE.
Make sure the Water Tank is not full on the outside of the bladder. If it is, empty the tank.
Ensure the hose is firmly attached to the back of the machine. If not, re-insert as necessary by twisting into place.
The machine must be in an upright, locked position and set to the Hose
Attachment setting. If the handle is slightly tilted back while using,
it will create a small gap at the suction inlet (where handle meets
gasket, above the Bottom Tank) which will cause little or no suction.
Check the red Tank Lint Screen for debris. If the Lint Screen is dirty,
the unit will have poor suction. Clean the Lint Screen if necessary.
If the float flap door in the tank lid is activating prematurely when
you turn the machine on, this flap door should be replaced.
Check the Tank Lid and Tank for damage.
If there is no suction there, please take your machine to a
BISSELL Authorized Service Center for inspection.
