Dirt devil spot scrubber not picking up

Hi there! There are a few reasons why your spot scrubber may not be picking up. Your dirty water tank may not be seated properly or the filter may be dirty Please try these steps.

1. Check the filter located on top of the dirty water tank. If dirty, rinse with water.
2. Check that the pour spout cap on dirty water tank is plugged.
3. Replace the dirty water tank. Make sure the dirty water tank is flush to the cleaner and seated properly.
4. Clean the nozzle of any hair or debris.

Hope this helps! For further assistance please feel free to reach out to us here on Fixya, or Twitter @DirtDevil.

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.

    My hoover steam vac is dispensing water just fine, but is not picking up any water, i have secured the return compartment lid and made sure that the filter isnt too high, still not working

    Another reason for no pick up is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

    Need directions to fill , and how to use


    I have one just like it. Lay the machine back by pressing the pedal on the left side of the machine with your foot. Now you can get to the handle for the clean/dirty water tank. Lift this off. There's a clip in the back to separate the top sweep section from the tank. Take off the top. You'll see an open hole on the top for filling the bladder inside. This is for clean, hot water only. Fill the bladder, around the bladder is where the dirty water goes back in. you can drain the dirty water by pouring out the corner. There is also a plug on the bottom for draining the bladder when you're done.

    When you put the sweep section back on the tank be sure to catch the front part over the edge of the tank or it won't stay on. Then fasten the clasp and put it back in place.

    To fill the soap dispenser... find it at the back of the machine at the bottom. It just lifts out of the machine. Fill to line and reinsert.

    Hope this helps.

    Hoover 3010 FloorMate Plus not dispensing liquid

    With the tank off, can you see if the rod in the handle is hitting the spot where the tank sits on, if not then there is a problem in the handle. If it is, then the reservior asm may be bad, it is what the tank sits on.

    Will not dispense water or solution

    On the bottom of the tank is a valve, push it in and see if water comes out Where the tank sits, there is a black round seal, is it in the proper place? The rod in the handle hits just under that seal, with the tank off, you can see if the rod is movin up and down when you depress the trigger. The resevior asm. may be bad, that is what the tank sits on.

    Won't dispense solution

    Check the filter inside the dirty water tank. If it is pushed all of the way to the top, then it won't spray or suck. Also if this has the type of hose that has a block attached to it, when you removed the hose, did you put the other block back in place. Check the seal that the solution tank sits on.

    NoSuckage !!!

    Either the lid for the dirty water tank is not completely on or the filter inside has been pushed up all of the way to the top. You need to have a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.

    Not dispensing soap; won't pick up moisture.

    Check the filter on the bottom of the lid for the dirty water tank, make sure it isn't pushed all of the way up, needs at least a gap of 1/4 inch or so. Also make sure that the lid for the tank is locked down and not loose on one end.
