SOURCE: 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 opening.

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.

My Hoover steam vac spin scrub will not suction up the cleaning solution . Why is there no suction?


p{margin-top:0px; margin-bottom:0px;} Hello,

Thank you for your recent e-mail. I am sorry to read about the problem that you are having with your cleaner.

Please make sure your recovery tank and lid are installed correctly and forming proper seals. Make sure that your filter is clean of any debris. Clean the screen in the tank lid. Make sure your nozzle and squeegee (if on your model) are free of dirt/lint/hair and attached in their holsters correctly. Make sure you do not have any clogs in the hose.

To restore suction, please try the following:

*Remove dirty water tank and clean filters- main reason for low suction is dirty filter

*Verify the dirty water tank cap is not missing.

*Verify dirty water tank lid is inserted completely into unit.

*When cleaning, the yellow float inside of dirty water tank should be free moving.


• First remove your clean water tank and unplug the machine
• Remove the dirty water tank lid and push the front panel piece (square plastic sliding piece in the front of tank) down to make sure it is inserted all the way.
• When reattaching the lid, hook the tabs on the front of the lid to the tank first, then click shut in the back. Pull up on the lid firmly, it should not lift at all. If it does, try reattaching as a seal needs to be formed for suction.
• Test to see if suction has been regained.

If these suggestions do not solve your issue please call a service center.

Your cleaner has at least a 6 month warranty for manufacturing defects. This warranty begins from the date of purchase, with the original sales receipt. If you do not have the original sales receipt, the warranty may be verified at the warranty repair center by MFG or serial number.

Please visit www.Hoover.com and click on service center locator for a list of authorized dealers in your area for service and warranty assistance.

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.

    No suction on my Pro heat steamer


    You may want to check to see if the removable nozzle is correctly placed into its place. This is the plastic part where the water is sucked up through by the carpet cleaner. The nozzle notches must fit into the groove on the cleaner correctly and the metal bar need to snap back on top of the removable nozzle, Also sometimes if you have hair trapped in the nozzle or the bristle, it will affect the suction power of getting up the dirty water. The dirty water tank need to snap in place by making sure the top of the gray snaps on each side is over the top groove of the dirty tank on each side and the the gray snaps are pushed down and pushed into the tank to until it is snapped in place.
    Super Simple answer could be: The Dirty water tank could have bubbles in it causing it not to **** too.

    Vacumm not working shampoo the rug but does not pick up dirty water


    Try the following suggestions to see if you can get your machine suctioning properly:

    1) Remove the Tank-in-Tank Assembly and place your hand over the motor intake valve. This valve is located next to the Floor Nozzle gasket (at the top of the Floor Nozzle window) and behind the SmartMix Bottle. If you feel vacuum-like suction at this area, your suction power of the unit is working but air is escaping at some point. If there is no suction at the motor intake valve your machine will need to be inspected by an Authorized Service Center Technician.
    2) It is possible the Floor Nozzle on your machine is inserted incorrectly. This would directly affect the suction of your machine. Please follow the directions below for removing and replacing the nozzle.
    Before starting, please be sure the machine is unplugged and the machine handle is reclined.
    To remove the Floor Nozzle window, first detach the Phillips head screws located at the base of the nozzle. Then, remove the Tank-in-Tank Assembly. Next, pull forward at the top of the Floor Nozzle window to release the tabs of this window from the receiving holes of the machine. This window is designed to allow access for cleaning.
    When replacing the Floor Nozzle window, please be sure the tabs at the TOP of the nozzle are properly inserted into the receiving holes provided. If you do not have the tabs in place properly, the suction power of the machine could be affected.
    Rotate the window down into place and replace the screws.
    3) Ensure that the Ready Tools knob (diverter knob) is in the proper setting and the valve opens and closes freely. Ensure the black foam gasket is in place under the valve.
    4) Check to ensure the Tank-in-Tank assembly is seated properly and that it is not full of dirty water. (If this tank has a drain cap, make sure it is in place and that it has a black o-ring).
    5) Check the float and baffle to ensure they are properly installed on the Tank-in-Tank. The larger square portion of this part should be below the clear baffle of the tank with the red flag portion of the float resting on top of the baffle.
    6) Check the Tank-in-Tank and lid for damage. Is the lint screen clogged? Make sure the lint screen is in place on the tank lid and not placed into the motor duct. Also, clear the holes on the lint screen.
    7) Check to see if the upholstery hose has suction. If the hose has suction and the floor nozzle does not, check the diverter valve to see if it opens and closes freely. This can be seen through the Floor Nozzle window as you switch the diverter knob from the floor to tools setting.

    • Check to make sure that the lower dirty water lid is installed and secure and not cracked.
    • Check to make sure the front duct panel is installed on the dirty water tank (this will transition the water from the front nozzle into the tank)
    • Check the filter in the dirty tank lid, clean if necessary
    • Remove the lower tank and look at the motor cover, locate a round hole, you should see a black ring (gasket).
    • with the lower tank removed, turn the machine on to check suction at the round hole, if OK then your problem will be with one of the above reasons

    I HAVE A BISSEL SPOT BOT THAT WON'T **** UP THE DIRTY WATER.I TRIED TO TAKE IT APART TO CLEAN IT, BUT DIDN'T GET VERY FAR. ANY SUGWSTION? THANKS, ...


    No Suction
    Possible Causes Remedies
    Tank is full. Empty tank.
    Dirty/Collection tank latch is not down. Push latch down, securely
    into place.
    Black Valve on the Dirty/Collection Tank is missing. Replace Black Valve into Dirty/ Collection tank.

    Usually there is a seal out of place, or a filter is clogged, so you lose suction.
