If the tank is leaking, when removed from the cleaner, it is not user serviceable.

SOURCE: Leaking tank

(1) Does water or chemical leak from the tank when filled, but before it is installed? If not, then the tank is OK.
(2) If the tank is not properly aligned to the lower handle when assembled and latched, the black rubber seals on the handle will not seal to the tank. You may wish to look at this. Also, make sure both round black rubber seals are present on the flat mount where the tank valves will sit.

I cannot see what the other expert suggested as the site doesn't allow it.I would like a little better description please but I will take a guess at what is normal procedure.I guess the water tank is already full and when you turn on the switch for water,excessive amount comes out?Or if the machine is just sitting there,when you attach the water tank to start to use,water comes out without turning it on.You said you took it apart too.The bottom end attaches to a tube or some type of valve control I would say.If the water flows out as if nothing is there,maybe almost a gush,the valve is probably stuck open.Another possibility could be that if the valve is controlled by an electronic component,that may be telling it to stay open.I checked out Hoover parts for your model but it wasn't very helpful.If I could see what they are,it would immensely help to figure it out.There may be a rubber seal or gasket at the bottom of the water tank,if the leak is slow it could be that.You said it is practically unuseable though so that is not likely.If you can remove the panel to the output end of the tank,you should be able to see what the valve is doing.There are all kinds of safety features probably so everything else will probably need to be in place to try and see what's going on during operation.Like I said though,I cannot tell if the unit is on or just when you attach the tank with it off when it leaks.Please let me know about that.When you reply to this post I will get an auto link.Thanks,Greg

This is a common problem with the earlier models which had a separate soap tank glued to the clean water tank. The plastic was too thin beneath the valve on the clean water side and would develop cracks. You most likely will need a new one piece tank. ( Part # 42272104)

How do I cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil on my hoover dual vac shampooer


The center part of the valve (stem) pushes up (spring loaded) to release liquid. If it leaks it can (and should) be replaced. Also, check the black valve seal (conical shaped ring around the outside) for cracks or splits as this can contribute to leaks. The entire valve assembly (similar to photo) should be replaced to solve both issues.

Hoover f7458-900 leaking when placing tank on


Hello! Test the clean water tank to see if it is leaking. Fill the clean water tank with water on both sides. Hold the tank up and observe if water leaks from the valves underneath the tank. If either of the valves are leaking the clean water tank will need to be replaced. To order a replacement tank follow this link > Search Results. If the tank is not leaking, but the cleaner leaks when the tank is placed on it, this may indicate an internal issue with your pump. We would recommend taking the cleaner to a Hoover authorized service center. Follow the link to locate the nearest service center to you. > Service Center Locator Hope this helps!

Hoover max extract 77 water tank leaking


Remove the little black plastic plug on the bottom of tank (has a metal spring around it), that is where it is leaking. Wrap Teflon (pipe tape) around it and the spring. Replace black plug. Not a permanent fix, but can help if you are on a bind. It worked for me.

Let me start out with an apology. I did not ask my question very well - and you did not answer it as I needed.
If you wish, we MAY be able to communicate in your native language. We can do most indian languages, Turkish, Ukranian and some Russian - as well as Spanish. If any of those are easier for you - please feel free to use any of them.

The Machine storage tanks are 2 - one clean water, one dirty water.
I understand that, when OFF, no leaks happen.
I understand that when on a leak comes from "the side". Also, water comes from the bottom.

So, water comes out near the bottom brushes (even without trigger). Then, with trigger, MUCH water comes out near bottom brushes. Am I correct so far?

Water out the side concerns me. I am guessing that the bottom of the clean storage tank may have a small leak.
I am also guessing that the trigger valve (located in the small opening behind the black rubber seal that the clean water tank rests on) is not closing all of the way - or is broken (cracked).

Can you please remove the clean water tank and inspect the trigger valve with a torch (flash light). Can you see it open/close as you operate the trigger? Is it broken, cracked, or dirty?
If yes then it must be replaced. If no, the the storage tank is bad and must be repaired.

You inspect all of these things and you should be able to determine the failure. THEN, I an help you repair the failed item.

You didn't give your model number, but if this is a V2, you may have a crack in the tank, alot of times it is underneath the seal on the bottom. Or the plunger at the bottom of the tank is stuck open or missing.
