How do I cycle the valves on the bottom with the eraser end of a pencil on my hoover dual vac shampooer


The center part of the valve (stem) pushes up (spring loaded) to release liquid. If it leaks it can (and should) be replaced. Also, check the black valve seal (conical shaped ring around the outside) for cracks or splits as this can contribute to leaks. The entire valve assembly (similar to photo) should be replaced to solve both issues.

When button is pressed, water does not come out of the holding canister. still seems to have suction, but water doesn't come out to rinse/clean carpet.


Please check the following with liquid in both tanks.


- Check to see if the machine will spray through the hose with the setting on tools. If it does, the pump is fine. Continue troubleshooting.

- Check for debris on spray tips. Clean them with a soft brush (on old tooth brush works well). The spray tips may be lifted out for easier access.

- Ensure the tank lid is properly attached to the bottom of the tank. To attach this properly, remove the Water Tank from the machine. Hook the front window onto the lip of the bottom container and then allow the window with lid to cover the complete tank. Secure the latch on the back of the bottom tank to the back of the tank lid. THE TANK LID CANNOT BE ATTACHED PROPERLY IF THE BOTTOM TANK IS ALREADY INSTALLED IN THE MACHINE.
- Check the bottom of the Water Tank and the Formula Tank to make sure each has a red auto-load gasket attached. Make sure the Water Tank and the Formula Tank are seated properly. Depress the x on this gasket to ensure this depresses and release back out. Liquid from the tank should dispense.

- Remove the handle completely and re-attach. Once the handle is re-attached, re-attempt to spray.


If the machine continues to not spray, check the following:


REMOVE THE COLLECTION TANK:
• Make sure the unit is set to water rinse
• Remove the smart mix bottle and fill it with water only
• Place the smart mix bottle into the collection tank reservoir
• Run the unit and try to spray. If the machine sprays, you will be able to see the water level decreasing in the smart mix bottle and you will need to replace the bottom tank. It is possibly warped.

Let me start out with an apology. I did not ask my question very well - and you did not answer it as I needed.
If you wish, we MAY be able to communicate in your native language. We can do most indian languages, Turkish, Ukranian and some Russian - as well as Spanish. If any of those are easier for you - please feel free to use any of them.

The Machine storage tanks are 2 - one clean water, one dirty water.
I understand that, when OFF, no leaks happen.
I understand that when on a leak comes from "the side". Also, water comes from the bottom.

So, water comes out near the bottom brushes (even without trigger). Then, with trigger, MUCH water comes out near bottom brushes. Am I correct so far?

Water out the side concerns me. I am guessing that the bottom of the clean storage tank may have a small leak.
I am also guessing that the trigger valve (located in the small opening behind the black rubber seal that the clean water tank rests on) is not closing all of the way - or is broken (cracked).

Can you please remove the clean water tank and inspect the trigger valve with a torch (flash light). Can you see it open/close as you operate the trigger? Is it broken, cracked, or dirty?
If yes then it must be replaced. If no, the the storage tank is bad and must be repaired.

You inspect all of these things and you should be able to determine the failure. THEN, I an help you repair the failed item.

Bissell won't spray water


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, this is for the soap bottle, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. 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 knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

Where the lip of the tank sits on the clear window, is the gasket there? If it is missing, it won't suck up the water. It is black, oblong (#24)and sits in a slot on the clear window providing a seal for the tank. Is the filter clean(#62), should be sitting in the square opening on the bottom of the lid, it sits right over the sucking opening.

Water drains out the bottom of cleaner as soon as tank is attached.


You don't say where the water is leaking from i.e. the back or the front. It likely is coming from the back. There is a connection to the "seat" that the tank sits in. There is a small hose that delivers the solution from the tank to the pump in the machine and I have seen them break off at the valve under the handle. If this is the case, the valve will have to be replaced.

Water leaking from bottom and hose not connected


The hose just pushes on. You will have to take the top cover off to rehook up the hoses. There are scres on the bottom, then where the dirty water tank sits, there tabs that you have to unhook, then the cover will come off. Note: the filter inside the ditry water tank, leave a gap at the top to the filter. If you push the filter all the way up, it won't spray or suck up.
