This is an old post but I thought it might help anyone having this problem now to post the solution.
The internal water pump feeds two water delivery hoses on the Bissell Spot Bot. One goes to the spout located in the center of the rotating brushes.
The other feeds the spout located on the underside of the brush at the end of the hose.
There is a water shut off valve that is actuated when you pull the plastic tube at the end of the hose out of the plastic tube it is fitted into during storage.
When you pull the end of the hose out of this plastic fitting a button inside is no longer depressed and a valve shuts of the water flow to the rotating brushes. If this valve is clogged with gunk it will not release when the hose end is pulled out and water will still come out of the rotating brushes even in manual mode.
This is a mechanical fault not an electronic fault.
To resolve the issue you can mix a solution of vinegar and hot water and fill the water tank with it.
Put the rotating brushes over the sink. Remove the hose and fit the scrub brush to the end.
Start the machine in manual mode. The sink will catch the water coming from the rotating brushes area.
Now point the hose end at the sink to catch the water and pull the water release trigger. While holding the trigger press and release the black button inside the tube that holds the hose end during storage. This moves the internal workings of the valve.
Do this till all the water is gone.
At some point during this procedure you will notice that when you release the black button the water will stop coming from the rotating brushes.
You problem is now solved.
If this does not work after two tanks of hot water and vinegar then the valve would need to be removed and soaked in a solution or replaced.
This is a much more complex procedure that requires disassembly.
Maybe a youtube video is in order.
If your lucky the procedure above will solve the problem.
