First check that the top cover on the back side hasn't come loose. Sometimes the plastic around the screws break away and the top starts to separate, raising the tank, and no spray. Make sure that the gaket is on the valve at the bottom of the tank and not sitting loose in the hole. Check the pump belt. The pump may be bad.

SOURCE: My Bissell ProHeat steam cleaner won't spray water. The accessory

Under the plastic under the water tank (its a pain to pull apart to get to it) there is a solenoid that actuates the water between the floor and the tools. This is toast if its not spraying the floor, its simply not reacting to the signal to let it go through to the water side.
Seems to be a common problem with the Bissell Proheats. You can order a new one online for about $12 and try to get to it to replace it yourself (if you can open up the base its obvious which part it is if you just follow the hoses).

Why won't my Bissell pro heat wont suck up water with the upholstery tool


You may have a valve that switches from floor suction to tool suction. This could be not deployed or stuck.

Will not **** the water off the carpet.


If the carpet cleaner won't "Extract" water from the carpet, try using the upholstery / hand tool. If you have suction there, your selector switch / knob is either in wrong position, or broken. There may also be a tear in the hose on the inside of the cleaner, or the waste tank is not sealing well.

Just got a bissell proheat clearview force cleaner, we press the trigger, no water sucking action or shampoo release going on .. what's wrong?


By the Floor Cleaning setting knob and Tools for PreHeat setting knob, there's a red x inside a clear circle cap. Is it spinning at all? If not...twist the cap off and remove the red x. Under the red x there is a tiny little filter. This might be plugged. Pull it out and clean it. Put back in (this is all really easy).
See if it works now.

Mine sucks because it DOESN'T ****.


First check that the dial on the side of your steamer is set to carpet for carpet and tools for tools, I know this is simple.

Now make sure that the water tank is down properly. Sometimes the little rubber seals on the bottom of the water take pulls off and gets stuck in the base of the machine. Make sure you have the rubber seals on the bottom of the tank before you put the water tank onto the machine.

Replace the switch that controls hand tools to the upright unit


If that flap isn't moving when you turn the knob for floor or hose, then yes it is broken, part #2136988 is the diverter valve. You will have to remove the top cover, it mounts on the underside of it.
