Clean machine All the belts are fine but the machine does not pick up the water. I think it is clogged with pet hair but don't know where to clean it out. I have taken off the roller, etc. but nothing seems to work.

This is what was wrong with mine....very simple solution to fix: Check the bottom of the water reservoir. It should have a black rubber washer attached to the lip that goes down into the main system. If that part is inside the main system, instead of attached to the water reservoir, the reservoir doesn't make a tight enough seal for the suction. Just carefully remove (I use tweezers) the black rubber part (almost like a thick washer) and put it on the reservoir. Should fix the problem!

Bissell Pet Hair Erase does not vacuum.

It is because the belt is worn or stretched and needs to be replaced. Here are the belts you need and the manual which has instructions:

I have a Lift Off Pet Bagless upright and ever since I **** up a hair tie it hasn't been **** up the dog hair from my carpet. I have gotten the hair tie out of the vacuum but it is still not **** up.

One of the reasons it might not be picking up is because you have a worn belt. The other reason could be that the suction channel is clogged. Did you remove the hair tie you ****up? If you need a replacement belt you can get it here: Bissell Lift-Off Pet Replacement Belt

Bissell Lift OfF Brush Roller Stops Rotating

They make the worst machines, the rollers are cheap and they make it so you cant take them apart to clean them. You don't want a dyson either, they aren't any better for pets. With all that hardwood floors you should get a good canister vacuum, sebo and miele are the best.
