Dirty water is leaking back out

I have had the hoover vacumn scrubber developing the same problem on both. The water runs out the bottom so as fast as you **** up it seeps back out. My husband took apart to try and see were it was leaking or if something was stuck and could not find the problem. Like a idiot I bought another one and it has now developed the same problem. Can anyone help me-Thanks

After shut off all steamvacs will leak dirty water that was sucked up back out. There is always some left in the nozzle. If it is a large amount there is clogged filter that isnt allowing the proper suction. Refer to your manual or go to hoover.com to download one for cleaning directions.

Dirt devil spot scrubber not picking up


Hi there! There are a few reasons why your spot scrubber may not be picking up. Your dirty water tank may not be seated properly or the filter may be dirty Please try these steps.

1. Check the filter located on top of the dirty water tank. If dirty, rinse with water.
2. Check that the pour spout cap on dirty water tank is plugged.
3. Replace the dirty water tank. Make sure the dirty water tank is flush to the cleaner and seated properly.
4. Clean the nozzle of any hair or debris.

Hope this helps! For further assistance please feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, Facebook.com/dirtdevil or Twitter @DirtDevil.

How do i get scrubber to **** water back up?


The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

When I use the hoover steam vac the bottom tank does not have any dirty water or anything in it, I bought it from a neighbor I wonder if I have it hooked up right.


If the motor runs and the water is not sucked up it is due to an air leak. This is most often caused by the lid not being properly seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure the lid is on squarely all around. Another common problem is that the duct is missing from the dirty water tank. This occurs on the models which have the more "square" shaped tank, with a foot operated on/off switch. The duct slides into the front of the lower tank, and is removed to attach the hose. It may have not been put back in place by the last user. A less common problem is that the large round rubber gasket that the tank sits on has fallen off the tube that comes up from the motor cover. Look for the gasket by removing the tank and checking underneath it.

Hoover silver carpet scrubber wont **** up water . did the obvious checks


There are two common situations that can cause lack of pick-up. First is that the lid is not properly attached to the recovery tank. Make sure it is latched in back and snapped in place in front. The second common problem is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. There is a plastic duct about the size of a slice of sandwich bread which slides into the front of the tank, and is removed when the hose is in use. A less common problem is that the large round rubber seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the suction tube on the motor cover.

My Hoover Carpet Cleaner is leaking out the bottom when I use the hand tool


this could be the little white valve that the water comes out of, if its leaking from here or if its leaking at the bottom of the machine it could be the pump

Hoover steam vac not sucking water back up i have super wet floors and no water in recovery tank


I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.

In need of repair


you may have what they call a lint filter that is obstructed. there are 2 of these one is under the dirty water tank lid and the other is the red piece found on the bottom of your machine. the red piece of plastic should pull out and you can then clean it out. make sure you reapply the same way it came out. good luck!!!

Does not pick up water
Posted by Dreams642 on Apr 20, 2008
I have had my Hoover Floormate for years. It has always worked great but the last few times I used it the amount of water left is tremendous and the container for dirty water was not full at all. I looked at it and the hose going up from the bottom thru the handle is broken how do I fix this.

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.

My steam scrubber is not sucking up the water from the carpet into the discard container, and bushes not spinning.


The 2 most common problem is that the round filter inside of the lid for the dirty water bucket is up too high. There needs to be a 1/4 inch gap or so. The other is that the lid is not locked on the the bucket.
