Check for the front panel duct located on the lower tank front. this is the part you need to remove to attach the hose. also check to make sure the lid is on and secure on the lower tank. remove the lower tank and look on top of the motor cover toward the left front corner you should see a round black gasket on a pipe. if not there, this will cause poor suction.

"I did some research online and the recurrent theme was a bad turbine assembly. Fortunately I was able to fix this myself which took about 2 hours (some reading) and little effort. The problem was with the turbine which is fairly simple and had a bearing that had rusted and froze up. Removing the cover proved to be more difficult than fixing the stuck bearing. This was mostly due to figuring out the correct screws to remove and finally discovering that the back of the cover (over the wheels) is not secured by fasteners but by pegs that "pop" out.
Once I had the brush assembly and Cover removed the turbine came out with the removal of some obvious screws and gently pulling the hoses from the assembly. After carefully opening the assembly housing I discovered the bearing problem and with a little lubrication and some new grease had it working in short order. Putting everything back together was simple as well."
this worked for me. although once i got in i just had to mess around with the gears and loosen them up. getting in was the hard part soo here you go peoples.
take off tanks
unscrew 6 screws fom underneath machine. look carefully
just underneath where the dirty tank goes right by the part that sucks everything up is a screw. unscrew it
pop off the switch for your spin scrub mode. it pops right back on.
make sure your locks for the tank are turned in
then the back just pops off. you might have to give it a good tug. there are no screws although it maight look like there is.
then pull off the grey part.
once inside it is pretty easy.
but if you have any questionbs email at firstname.lastname@example.org
i took off so many more screws than i needed to to get this figured out so dont do that.

Clogging of the pump that sprays water/cleaning solution is very common in Hoover and Bissell Steam Vacs. Try running a cycle of 1part vinegar or CLR to 3 parts warm, distilled water through the vacuum pumps. The heads get clogged with soap and the water pumps get clogged at the opening of the flash heater due to minerals in hard water. If you want to extend the life of your steam vac, don't use the heater unless you are using distilled water. This can get expensive, so I recommend not using the heater.

need and a manual you can view:
