Check the little door at the back of the unit where the hose attachment plugs in. It has to be shut really tightly and it takes a quick fist smack on it to get mine to "click" and be shut. If that isn't sealed it could leak both clean and dirty water to the floor.

Also, take the dump tank off, check the filter (near the top where the dump tank connects on the machine side) is clear. Also make sure the rubber seal around the filter isn't loose or cracked. Then put the dump tank back on making sure the bottom is seated well first and then CLICK the top into place when you push it to the upright/in place position.

If you are using the hose attachment, make sure it is clicked into place tightly. I have to put one hand on the front of the machine to push toward the back while pushing the other hand on the hose to get it to click tightly in place. If it's not really snapped in there, it will leak.

Good luck!

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.

Why does my hoover steam vac only blow out


Hey there! The cleaner blowing out air instead of sucking is an indication that the unit is not sealed off properly. Follow these brief steps to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank.

2. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.

3. Remove the dirty water tank lid.

4. Reposition the front panel located on the outside of the tank in the center. It should be flush to the tank, even straight across and pushed down as far as it will go.

5. Assemble the dirty water tank lid back on from the front to the back. The lid should not lift up from the front.

Give it a try! The cleaner should now have suction. Hope this helps!

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.

    Carpet cleaner suction not working blowing out air instead


    The most common reason for lack of pick up is that the lid is not fully seated on the dirty water tank. Be sure to hook the two tabs on the front of the lid, and then snap the rear latch into place. Another reason 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.

    I have a blue bissell preheat 2x. While shampooing it will start to leak dirty water. When i'm done shampooing my carpets look even more filthy then when I began. Not sure why this is happening besides...


    You should drain the dirty water, you should find where it is stock then drain it. If there's some leak, seal it with an epoxy. Thoroughly clean the inside and you will find there's a stock of old shampoo which causes water to become dirt.
    I hope my advice help you.

    Empty dirty water tank, replaced it and then started to clean again. It did not **** up the water.


    The only reason for no pick up is an air leak. The most likely problem is that the lid is not properly seated on the dirty water tank. A less common problem is that the round rubber seal the tank sits on is out of place.

    Hoover spin vac wont **** up the dirty water!


    Check the lid on the dirty water tank. This is a very common problem. If the lid is not engaged in the tabs of the tank, the lid will not sit down properly and all the suction will leak out between the lid and tank.
