Question about Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum

My Hoover SteamVac Agility's dirty water tank isn't filling up

My clean water is spraying out and is all gone, soaked in my carpet. However my vacuum has only sucked up approximately an eighth of the dirty water after finishing the job, My carpet is too wet. I've looked for clogged airways, but can't find any reason why it's not being sucked into the retainer. The lid and container appear to be on tight.

I need to know why the Hoover Max Extreme keeps telling me t check the tank?


Hi! The solution and water goes in the top tank. Dirty water is suctioned into the bottom tank as you're scrubbing your floors. To fill the clean water tank, remove the clean water tank cap. The cap serves as a measuring cap for the solution. Fill the cap with Hoover carpet washer solution to the fill line. Pour detergent into tank. Fill the rest of the clean water tank with hot tap water and twist the cap back on. You are now ready to clean. Hope this helps!

Press the handle release kick-button with your foot, extend the handle all of the way back, and take a look at the gap between the base of the unit and the handle/reseviour assembly. You should see several black hoses attached to the base and running up into the handle assembly. One of them (the dirty water return hose) might be cracked. Turns out that might be a common problem with this model. We had the same problem.

Judging by the interference between the vacuum hose and the "dirty water return" hose, there is NO WAY those two hoses can exist together in that housing without causing the dirty water return hose to stress. It certainly cannot last for many full bends of the handle.

We opted to not repair our unit, but you might be able to do it yourself for the cost of the part and several hours of your time. Otherwise, seek out your certified Hoover repair center for more info.

UPDATE: I McGuyverized it myself with a dremel cutoff tool, some vinyl tubing, some 2-part epoxy, and a lot of faith. It sure isn't pretty, but it sucks again. :)

Hoover steamvac won't spray water on carpet.


Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.

Hoover agility wont suck


There are 2 filters and if either one gets clogged, it will not suck up the water. One is from the bottom, it is red, pull it out far enough to clean it. The other one is behind the dirty water tank, remove the tank and you can see it on the wall covering the inlet for the suction. Clean it off, you should have suction now.

Steamvac quit spraying


Check the seal that the clean water tank sits on, may have come loose. The filter inside the dirty water tank has been pushed up too far, needs to have a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter.
