You should first check to make sure that the machine is set on wet pick up and not dry. When in dry mode ( the front foot pedal on the left side) the machine is held slightly above the floor. When is wet mode, the squeegees drop down to the floor. The other problem may be the wheel assy is broken. Turn the machine over and check the black plastic wheel carrier at the back of the assy to see if the pivots are broken.

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.

Hoover floor mate sucks up water while in the wash position

They do that. They pickup the water in all stages but lower the squeegee to different heights. At no point does the suction turn off.

I love my floor cleaner n I would be lost without it. I use it once if not twice a week. But...when I went 2 use it this week it will not squirt the water out when I pull the trigger so I used a squirt...

Check that the bung that closes off the water outlet hole is not stuck in the outlet. Remove the water container and check the underside where the outlet is while operating the opening mechanism.

Floormate will not **** dirty water.

Check the hose coming out of the floor assembly. It tends to split, keeping it from picking up the water

Dirty water comes out when I stop scrubbing. Floors remain wet.

Try one thing... the filter cover must be clicked into place. I thought it just sat on top, but it has to be pushed into place.

Hoover floormate.

Can't do it. The machine vacuums in both scrub and pick-up. Sorry.

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The problem could be that the Hoover H3000 Floor Mat could be clogged or something is blocking the suction port or you may have a pinched line of some type of which would cause it to not pickup, feel free to check with a local vacuum dealer in your area or in the yellow pages or the Hoover factory phone number is listed below: Telephone

Spin bruches don't touch floor.

It seems to be a common problem with this series of floormate... some home quickfixes (a hassle, i kno) but put downward pressure while using the solution.... Check your warranty that came with it, and how long you purchased the floormate... Alot of vaccuums come with 30-90 warranties, I'd recommend having it checked out. That, or if u bought it recent enough,take it back... like i said, these models are unfortunately known to have this problem... Some people have ones that operate normally, but alot do not. >.<

Won't suck up water from floor

1. Check all the tubes from the nozzle to the collection tank and make sure they are not clogged up. I've had tht happen pretty bad before. 2. Check the squeegee. If it is damaged or torn, replace it.
