SOURCE: How do you remove the filter for a Hoover washing

I included a link on Youtube to my Nextra where I show how I clean the filter (watch it from 08:55 onwords). Just remove the kick strip and unscrew (philips screwdriver needed) the little screw on the filter itself, then turn it anti-clockwise but while you're doing this make sure you insert the kick strip underneath to gather the residual water. Repeat this operation 3 o 4 times until the sump is totally empty, make sure you don't let the kick strip fill up too much otherwise you'll be spilling water all over the place, so just turn the filter clockwise everytime you want to stop the trickle of water. It's not too complicated and it won't be too messy if you follow these instructions carefully. Good luck ;-)

Hoover troubleshooting


Hi Nita! There are a few things that can reduce the suction of the cleaner. Please try these steps below.

1. Remove the clean water tank. Recline the handle and let the cleaner lay flat.
2. Remove the dirty water tank. Check that the grey cap is on and tightened on the tank.
3. Clean the filter screen located on the cleaner base.
4. Remove the nozzle. Clean any hair or debris from nozzle.
5. Clean the second filter screen behind the nozzle on the cleaner.
6. Assemble the nozzle back to the cleaner.

Give it a try! Your suction should be restored. Hope this was helpful!

When i screw the filter plug back in, the water still leaks, hoover optima wash wmh148df-80


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I suspect there is either limescale in the thread of the filter plug OR behind the filter itself and this is stopping the plug from being screwed home. Remove the plug, pull out the filter, clean filter compartment all round, especially at the back AND ensure the plug thread is completely free of limescale ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hoover hnl662 - can't remove filter


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
Suggestions- (+ loads of patience!)
pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the cap. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
Good luck

I cant get the brushes to spin on my hoover max extract carpet cleaner


Remove the brush assembly and insert a flat screwdriver into the square hole and be sure it turns. If it is seized up, the turbine assembly will require replacement. If it turns, be sure the brush control is set to the brush position and the filter is clean. The filter may be on top behind a clear plastic cap, or underneath in red plastic holder depending on the model. The brush will also not turn unless the lower tank is in place, and the handle released and tilted back.

My hoover steam vacs brushes will not turn . could there be a belt broken? I have misplaced the manual


For the manual:
http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf

For the brushes:
(1) Assure the Brush Control on the hood is NOT set to the OFF position.
(2) Remove the brush assembly by pulling/unlatching it from base on each side.
(3) Does one of the brushes have the drive pin present? It should be about ¼ inch square, and two inches long. It attaches the brushes to the drive mechanism.
(4) Remove and clean the intake filter. One the base of the cleaner, behind the brushes, squeeze the two red abs together and pull the panel down to access the screen. Clean the hair/debris off the screen and reassemble.

The gear box that drives the brushes is driven by vacuum air, running the turbine inside.
There are no belts, just direct drive.

Hoover agility wont suck


There are 2 filters and if either one gets clogged, it will not suck up the water. One is from the bottom, it is red, pull it out far enough to clean it. The other one is behind the dirty water tank, remove the tank and you can see it on the wall covering the inlet for the suction. Clean it off, you should have suction now.
