Question about Vacuums
My bissell doesn't stop dropping water. It's not clogged and it's suctioning good but even if I don't press the button water still comes out of it.

SOURCE: water suction
Here's what I did. On the top of the water bucket there is a red oval screen, remove and clean the screen and replace. Also, next to the screen is an oval opening which meets up with a black oval gasket on main unit. Inspect the gasket and replace if dry or cracking. Otherwise, if it looks good, reseat the gasket (it fits into some grooves). When you fill the bucket and put the the top on, put it in the machine and make sure it is making good contact against the gasket. This worked for me. I also found a repair manual for these units that could be helpful located at: http://www.bissell.com.au/images/IncludeContent/Service_Center_Help/Upright_Deep_Cleaner_Repair_Guide.pdf

Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix know. Pump is bad.

I had this problem, too. My machine is only a year old, so I was hoping it wasn't the pump already. I called the help line, and surprise - no help. They recommended a fix-it place, but the fix-it guy wouldn't help me over the phone. So I fiddled around with it and found the problem - the plug thingy underneath the main tank. The spring mechanism inside it was stuck, preventing any water from going thru it.
Lift out the main tank in the front and bring it to the sink. Feel inside the plug underneath. While holding the tank upright over the sink, push inside the plug. Water should squirt out the bottom of the plug. If it doesn't, turn the tank over, unscrew the plug, and try pushing the inside of it. It is spring-loaded like a ball-point pen. When I pushed the inside of the plug a few times, screwed it back in, and then put the tank on again, the machine worked like new. If your plug doesn't spring, maybe it needs to be cleaned out or replaced. If a new plug is needed, it probably doesn't cost as much as bringing it in for service. It's a small, simple part, and can probably be ordered online. Good luck!

cleaned all parts. the spin dial wont spin. the switches on both steamer and hand wand won't spray. Sometimes works then stops. Water comes out the bottom when sitting. All parts look fine no damages.

You need to check that the motor drive belt is OK and turning freely to drive the water pump - under the flap on the right side at the front as you look at the front of the Bissell. If this is OK have you filled the cleaning bottle with fluid etc? If so you may have an airlock in the pipe from the bottle to the motor. You can also have a blockage from the pump to the dispenser nozzles and can test this by taking off the top cover and taking the plastic tubes off them to see if water comes out of the tube. You can also do the same for the tube from the tank to the pump to see if water is getting to the pump OK. Also make sure that the mix valve setting (on the left side - looking from the front) is not turned to the off position. This could also be blocked and need cleaning or replacing.
