Obviously, it is either not fully inserted or the seals are leaking.

These shampooing devices are very picky about how you insert each part. They are not as temperamental as their older models, which I tossed in the garbage after getting a heated model, but they can still be difficult to handle.

Now, on difference is when the handle is upright all suction goes to the attachment hose. The further you lean the handle down the more suction goes to the lower compartment but you said it is leaking from the bottom. I suspect your supply chamber is the leaking area. You are just noticing is more because the lower section has less suction you suck up any leak before you see it.

SOURCE: Hoover Steam Vac clean water tank valve leaks

Honey! It's broke. You can manuever the little black valves out, but you will only find the hole in the clean water tank. I have the EXACT same problem. My advise to you is to take the valves, caps and handle off, sell them on EBAY and then buy you a whole new clean water tank.

SOURCE: water tank leaks

If the tank is leaking, when removed from the cleaner, it is not user serviceable.

Fill the tank and determine if the plastic is leaking, or if the valves are leaking. if the tank is cracked, it would need replaced. There is an improved design now available.

You may cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil.

The tank is not sealing to the black rubber ring seal on the lower handle. make sure this seal is not displaced.

SOURCE: My Hoover SteamVac Max Extract 77's dirty water

There are several possibilities for low pick up. The most common problem is that the lid is not correctly seated on the recovery (lower) tank. It is also possible that the rubber seal on the motor standpipe is out of place. The round tube on the bottom of the tank sits against the seal. Remove the tank and look for a large rubber ring on top of a plastic pipe. A less common issue is damage to the rug nozzle because the screws holding it against the carpet have been broken loose by dropping the shampooer on it's nose.

My max extract 77 hoover wont spray


Make sure all water lines are not clogged with anything 1st. Then check to see if the switch/lever or button that actuates the spray is functioning/working. If it's a mechanical switch/lever etc, see if you can take it off and clean it thoroughly and check to make sure there are no broken parts. If it's an electrical switch/button or lever, you need to check and make sure it's clean, and all the contacts to wires are NOT broken or damaged. You may have to replace parts if they don't function.

Hoover max extract 77 water tank leaking


Remove the little black plastic plug on the bottom of tank (has a metal spring around it), that is where it is leaking. Wrap Teflon (pipe tape) around it and the spring. Replace black plug. Not a permanent fix, but can help if you are on a bind. It worked for me.

Bissell steam cleaner will not spray shampoo


My Bissell stops releasing shampoo when the handle is lacked upright, when there is no water in the tank (the most common cause of this issue), or when water is not flowing through the machine because the sprayers are clogged.

Make sure the shampoo container grommet is releasing properly when you press the trigger. To check this, remove the shampoo tank from the Bissell, stand over a sink, and use a finger to push up inside the grommet on the shampoo container, the part of it that mates with the rest of the Bissell. Shampoo should dribble out when you do this. If it won't, the grommet may be clogged.
