We have a bissell lift-off deep cleaner 66e1 and it won't suck up the dirty water what can I do to fix it

Loss of suction power -

1. Tanks may not be seated properly - Pick up both tanks and reseat them so they fit properly on the unit.

2. Nozzles may not be assembled properly - Unplug the unit. Check to make sure the "lip" of the nozzle cover is securely hooked into the groove on the top of nozzle.

3. The portable spot cleaner is not attached completely - Push down firmly to check connection

4. Dirty tank has picked up maximum amount of dirty water and has reached full line - Empty dirty tank

5. Formula & water tank is empty - Check fluid levels in formula & water tank Suction Gate is open Check to make sure the suction gate is closed. Follow "Cleaning Suction Gate" instructions in the manual.

I hope this helps!

Why is my clean tank emptying immediately to my dirty water tank?

Hi Medori! It sounds like you have an issue with your pump assembly. We recommend taking your unit in to a Hoover authorized service center. For your convenience I have included a link to our service center locator. 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.

    I have never used a shampooer before when I use it it says to empty out dirty water. I don't have any left. My tank is empty. Am I doing something wrong.

    Suggest that you do the following.
    Remove the TOP ("Clean water") tank. Fill it 1/2 full of water. Put the top on the clean water tank and place it back on the machine.

    Release the machine handle and remove the cover of the "dirty" water tank. Inspect the back of the tank to be sure that the vacuum adapter in located in the rear of the dirty water tank. If not-that is your problem. If yes, restore the top to the dirty water tank.

    Power the machine on.
    On a kitchen floor, power the machine on. Pull the trigger and hold it for about 30 seconds. You should see water gathering around the brushes. If not, that is a problem.

    With water around the brushes, release and lower the handle and and move the machine over the water. It should vacuum the water into the dirty water tank.
    Is all of that happening?

    Dirty water comes out when I stop scrubbing. Floors remain wet.

    Try one thing... the filter cover must be clicked into place. I thought it just sat on top, but it has to be pushed into place.

    Emptying the powerbrush

    press the Quick Release tabs on the Clean/Solution Tank
    and slide the tank off of the unit.
    Grab the Dirty/Collection Tank and pull to remove.
    While at the sink, remove the Tank Cap by turning
    approximately 1/4 turn counterclockwise and lift
    out the cap.
    Empty the tank. Rinse the Dirty/Collection tank with
    warm water.
    Replace cap and turn approximately 1/4 turn clockwise,
    until snug.
    Slide the Dirty/Collection Tank into the unit. Replace the
    Clean/Solution Tank.

    The tabs on the side is what locks the tank on, if they won't release the tank, then you may have to take apart to get it off and replace the tank.
