my bissell 9200 won't release water or solution when the trigger is pulled.

SOURCE: I have a bissell pro heat water wont come out

The pump may spin but the vanes inside could be broken or worn enough that they are unable to push water through the pump system. I am repairing a Bissell Model 8920 Pro-Heat 2X that has this very same problem.

I tested all the hoses to verify that they were not plugged. I then hooked the water and cleaner tub from the rear directly to the pump and held it above the pump assembly and water barely went through it with gravity feed and the pump was visibly spinning. The pump assembly can be acquired from AE Carters for $10.00.

I do not give any guarantee that this is the only problem.

SOURCE: Cleaner Solution Not Dispensing On Bissell 9200 Pro Heat Cleaner

I haven't had this particular issue (yet... knock on wood!) with my Bissell, but remember that the shampoo will not dispense with no water in the tank (the most common cause of this issue because sometimes you think it has water but it doesn't) or water not flowing through the machine due to clogged sprayers-- another issue-- but since you're getting water on the floor that is not your issue-- or with the handle locked in position. If none of that fixes it, try removing the shampoo container, stand over a sink, and push your finger up inside the grommet where the shampoo container mates with the Bissell. Shampoo should dribble out. If it doesn't, unscrew the grommet (holding the container upside down of course so the shampoo doesn't gush out) and use your finger and running water to try and the grommet cleaned out.

If this isn't helping, it may be that your soap pump or soap dispensing trigger switch are defective.

SOURCE: I have a Bissell pro heat water will not disperse from

If the red spray pieces are not clogged but the Bissell still will not dispense water, then I would say the next most likely causes of your issue was either no soap in the tank, or a burnt out water pump. But since you can get water through the tools, I don't see how that's possible. I think it's still the sprayers. When you say you stuck a needle in the eye holes of the two red spray pieces, did you actually take the two red spray pieces off the hoses to do this? And then after pushing through a needle, did you try blowing through the red spray pieces? If you can't blow air through them, they're still clogged and water won't go through, either. Here's how to get the red spray pieces off the Bissell: Unplug the Bissell. Remove the water tank pieces from the top of the base. You'll probably reveal two red plastic pieces mounted in the Bissell's base, about .75" x .75". These spray water on your roller brushes when you press the water-and-soap trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle, and tend to clog with mineral deposits. Only work on one sprayer at a time so you can see how it goes back together. As you squeeze the red plastic sides of one red water sprayer, push up on the underside of the sprayer from underneath the bottom unit of the Bissell to release the sprayer from its mount in the base. Clean any lint or debris out of the mount area. Clean any gunk you can off the red water sprayer with an old toothbrush. Now you need to remove one water sprayer from the hose. You need a pair of pliers. Use the pliers to squeeze the brass colored clip that is keeping the red water sprayed mounted to the end of the small hose there. Move the clip up the hose so it compresses the spring and is no longer on the red plastic water sprayer. (See GOTCHA about the spring, below.) With the clip released, now you can twist and pull the red water sprayer out of the end of the hose. You'll need a little hand strength to do this. Just be careful not to break the water sprayer by using a tool. They're not particularly delicate, but breaking one would render your Bissell useless until it was replaced, so use a little care. When you've removed a red water sprayer from the hose, put the end of the red water sprayer that was inside the hose in your mouth and seal your lips around it, and try blowing through it. If you can't blow air through it, it's clogged. Open up a paper clip and push it back-and-forth through the small hole in the hose end of the water sprayer back towards its middle. You'll probably push out a line of white mineral deposits. Clean them off the water sprayer with the old toothbrush, and try blowing through the water sprayer again. If air passes through clearly, you've fixed it. Push the water sprayer back on the end of the hose. Use the pliers to reposition the brass clip on the end of the hose over the water sprayer. Click the red water sprayer back into position in the base of the Bissell. Now do the same for the other red water sprayer. The GOTCHA: Once when I pulled one water sprayer off, the hose advanced up under the spring and I couldn't reattach the red water sprayer, because it couldn't reach the end of the hose. It?s best to use the brass clip or some other means (rubber band, tape, another clip) to keep the hose from crawling up inside the spring after you pull the red water sprayer off the hose. If the hose gets up under the spring anyway, despite your best efforts, fix this by removing the six screws on top of the Bissell base (this is the surface the water tank mounts on top of), and pry it up. Pull out the hose, reattach the red water sprayers on the hose, position the hose *very carefully* inside the base (there are mounts under there they need to fit into, so you don't break anything), push the red water sprayers through the mount holes and mount them, and then reattach the screws to the base. You might want to prime the pumps. Sometimes an air pocket inside the machine (even a new one) keeps water from flowing, until you reprime the Bissell's internal pumps. To prime the pumps the easy way, turn it on, then press, hold, and release the water-and-soap trigger a few times, waiting a few seconds each time. Still nothing? Prime it the slightly harder way. Separate the two water tank pieces. Only have the base tank filled and mounted on the Bissell without the piece that sits atop the tank. Turn it on. Kneeling on the floor in front of the Bissell, reach up and press the soap and water trigger at the top of the Bissell's handle and hold it in as if you wanted water to go through. On top of the water tank is a plastic grommet hole about 1 inch in diameter, through which you pour water to fill the tank. Seal that hole with the flat of your hand. You'll feel just a bit of suction. Lift your hand up and down a few times, a few seconds apart. Release the trigger and repeat a few times. As you probably have learned the hard way, as I did, it's VERY important to do a lot of cleaning of the Bissell after each use, more than the manual tells you to do. Clean the bottom of the unit. Thoroughly rinse out and empty both water tank pieces. Unscrew the three clear plastic pieces, one in front, two on the sides, that surround the brushes, and rinse them thoroughly in water. Clean off the brushes and all the lint and gunk around and above the brushes. (A water spray bottle and toothbrush are helpful here.) Tip the machine and get all the water out of the hole in the base. Release the red clip springs on the red water sprayers and blow on them. Doing this will slow the failure of the Bissell. It's a great little machine for the money, but it does have a learning curve and needs more pampering than a vacuum cleaner, doesn't it?? Good luck!

Push the foot pad handle release on the left side lay the handle all the way back.Then lift the handle on the center bucket pull out and fill with hot tap water only no soap in the hole that fills up the plastic bladder.Flip the handle back down so that it locks the lid on. On the right side is a smaller soap tank just pull it up and unscrew the top and put your soap in it then replace.Set the dial right beside it to either water only ,or high traffic or ,regular.The soap dispenses automatically saving you from having to mix the solution.Turn both switches on and make a forward and back pass holding the trigger release the trigger go over the area just soaped until most of the water is sucked up. The little red circle on the left side is supposed to be turning if the water and soap are being sprayed out.Repeat and have fun

How come my brushes won't turn


Hi, it's Cindy from Crucial Vacuum,

Your Bissell 9200 Proheat 2x vacuum's brushroll is connected to the motor by two different sized geared belts. Over time, the belt's gears wear down and stretch out losing the grooves and tension that turn the roller. Another cause could be there is debris stuck on the roller and/or bearings. To gain access to your belts and check the source of the problem, please refer to page 15 of your manual, a direct photo is attached.

That's a good sign that you just burned something up. This is something that can't be diagnosed on a website. It will need to be taken to a repair shop.

I have a Bissel Proheat Pro-tech. When turn ON the motor running but not work. The belt still good but tho rotor not turn. Please help me to fix.Thanks


Is this the carpet cleaner Proheat?

I have a Proheat 2X and it wouldn't disperse water unless I used the Water Rinse setting. I found water came out and was suctioned properly, but on the Light Clean, Normal Clean, and Heavy Traffic settings, the unit failed to do anything. Problem may be with leaving the soap dispenser in-place, which might scum up the tubing.

SO, an alternative to throwing out my unit and buying somethign else was to put one capful of the Bissell soap in the water resevoir and keep the unit on Water Rinse. IT WORKS BEAUTIFULLY NOW. Don't know if this will help, but at least I didn't have to buy a new unit. Rinse everything after using and there's been no problem.

Bissell Pro 2X. The brushes spin as soon as I turn it on but only spins for an instant then it quits spinning. The vacuum stays running. the handle is down.


it might be the drive belt slipping if the unit is off then the belt is locked onto the belt and then when the unit is switched on the belt slips and if its loose it doesnt hold the belt to the motor shaft
