I am not sure why this post is in Bissell Wet/Dry Vac but...

Assuming you are talking about the dishwasher drain hose go to lowes, home depot or local hardware/appliance store.

They should sell different lengths of hose just unscrew the original hose and screw the other one.

hope that helps!

    It is probably 1/2" hose but you will need to double check if you take the hose in there you can compare the diameter it to the others.

Mintcraft kitchen faucet # 630-553 leaking from small hole in back of faucet

The hole is very small in the tail pipe and when you throw food, grease, it clogs this hole either partially or fully. When this happens then the water runs all over the sink through the weep hole. Which is the worst design I ever seen. By hand unscrew the black compression nut. Get a pipe cleaner or piece of wire, clean out the tube and especially the drain saddle. Reassemble and problem should be fixed.

Pipe or hose must be totally sealed to dehumidifiers output. Then make gravity work... all pipe runs must be downhill, or else it will back up and come out the dehumidifier.

My vacum will not pick up, it is spitting the dirt out?

Check for blockage.

Most likely place is in the tube leading up from behind the beater bar. While unplugged, remove beater bar & belt & check.

If you have a strong shop vac, remove beater bar, belt, and bag, applying suction to the tube in back of the beater bar will many times dislodge the clog with little effort, sometimes though it will take some fishing around with a stiff piece of coathanger wire or similar.

Normally when you can apply suction with the shop vac to the tube in back of the beater bar & feel suction at the tube were the bag connects, you know you've got it all and you should be unclogged. Put it back together and you should be ready to roll.

Dishwasher has about 2" of

Is your drain line clear? It feeds into your sink drain and if there is any blockage it can prevent a good drain. Is the drain line as straight as possible? Make sure the bottom of the dishwasher is free of debris (food, paper from labels, etc; plastic pieces) . To be safe you can take a long handles brush and scrub around the center of the drain area to dislodge any materials. Also, a white vinegar rinse will sometimes help remove debris and clean the interior of the washer. 1/2 cup white vinegar in the tub and then begin the cycle. If none of these remedies help, it might be the pump or the timer.

Having a loss of suction issue. Has some suction but isn't enough to use the power head. Tried to take out the filter to wash it but the pull loop ripped off. How do I get the filter out now without...

You should be able to get a screwdriver or tool under the ring to be able to get ahold of enough to pull it out. Check the suction (a suction gage helps) at the power unit and then at all inlet valves. It could be a leak or clog somewhere in there. You have to check all areas to try to narrow down the problem. Look for a loose hose, tube, valve, fitting etc. Check Vac pans closely if you have them.

Can the two inlet pipes be connected to one line? The central vacuum I have is probably from 1993/4. It has one exhaust pipe and two inlet pipes. It was initially under my stairs. I would like to move it...

There is no real reason why not...As long as you have enough "****" then that should be fine, you will need to "Y" join and NOT a "****" joint.

No water in the drain tank so is not picking up the water. What???

Two checks:
(1) Is the lid sealed to the recovery tank at the black lid gasket?
(2) Is the round seal gasket in place on the suction tube, under the hood? That tubular pipe seals to the tube on the bottom of the recovery tank.
