I know this is a silly question, but I borrowed this vacume from my Mother-In- Law, and she told us to fill the tank up over the little bump. Do you actually cover up the bump or do you leave the top of it above water? I'm not sure what you call the little thing that protrudes up in the middle of the tank, but that is what I'm calling a bump! I'm sure if I had the manuel that came with the vacume I would know how much water it takes. I don't really want to question my Mother-In-Law's intelligence by asking so can someone help me out? There is a fill line on the tank and it looks to me like it's under the bump. My husband thinks that it is over the bump!

Hi! The solution and water goes in the top tank. Dirty water is suctioned into the bottom tank as you're scrubbing your floors. To fill the clean water tank, remove the clean water tank cap. The cap serves as a measuring cap for the solution. Fill the cap with Hoover carpet washer solution to the fill line. Pour detergent into tank. Fill the rest of the clean water tank with hot tap water and twist the cap back on. You are now ready to clean. Hope this helps!
Hello, The cleaning solution goes in the top tank. Fill top tank with hot water first, then add the cleaning solution. That way it doesn't foam up. The tank lid is also a cup to measure how much solution you put in. Usually fill to top line. Make sure when you put tank on machine it snaps in place. if you have a manual, refer to it for instructions if you need to. Hope this helps.
make sure you are filling the right tank my mother in law was just putting cleaner in it and no hot water in big tank lmao i went over and found this out and deep down i lmao and was thinking i am married to this womans daughter lol
first take the large tank out open the top of it and place hot water in the small round opening, than put the lid back on and set the tank firmly back in place, then take the small shampoo resivour and fill that with only genuine bissell shampoo ( if you dont it could ruin the machine !!!! ) then theres a small knob near the small tank adjust that to regular or heavy traffic if its really bad.
The recovery tank lid isn't locked down all of the way around. The foam filter on the inside of the tank lid is up too far, needs at leasat a 1/4 in gap from the top. The filter screen by thye indicator is clogged. Some have a duct that sits in front of the recovery tank, either it isn't there or not pushed down all of the way.
