    Same thing happens to mine, checked the brushes, but all I see was hair. Cleaned that out and still have the same problem. Anyone else have suggestions?

Take it outside, upside down and have a good look at the brush area. I use a garden hose to clean it after every use.

Mine has done that on occasion, but only when I turn it off over the carpet- some of the nasty dirty water falls back down... So I always put it over a towel or a non carpet floor before turning it off... does that help?

Used the Kirby shampooer. It seemed to work well. Foamed ok and picked up foam ok. Capet looked clean. Next morning white streaks were noted on the carpet. What should I do to fix it?


White streaks might be soap residue, get carpet slightly wet and agitate it to see if it foams up. It may dpneed to be rinsed out.

As in the machine leaves patterns on the carpet? That's totally normal. If its leaving dirt streaks, its not operating correctly.

Whem i vacuum it leaves streak marks of the dirt on the carpet. i clean out the cup and the hose, what am i doing wrong? and how could i solve this problem?


It sounds like your filters may be clogged. Try pulling out the tray directly underneath of your dirt cup. You should see a black, or plastic piece directly underneath of the dirty cup that says PULL, pull this tray out and inspect the filter. If it's dirty, remove it and rinse it off. Make sure that this filter is 100% completely dry before putting it back in the vacuum and using it.

Also check the brushes to make sure that they are spinning while you're using the vacuum. Sometimes when the belt breaks, and the brushes no longer spin, this can cause the machine to not pick up as well as if the belt was new. If you're brushes aren't spinning try replacing the belt and see if this fixes it.

If this was helpful, please be so kind and rate the repair, or leave feedback. Thank you,

The bissell proheat is leaving too much water on the carpet


Sounds as though the machine needs a good clean before using again. Remove all the dirt, grease and hair from the transparent areas by removing the covers and then reassembling. Also this can be caused by running the cleaner too fast across the carpet.
