Gently
press the Quick Release tabs on the Clean/Solution Tank
and slide the tank off of the unit.
Grab the Dirty/Collection Tank and pull to remove.
While at the sink, remove the Tank Cap by turning
approximately 1/4 turn counterclockwise and lift
out the cap.
Empty the tank. Rinse the Dirty/Collection tank with
warm water.
Replace cap and turn approximately 1/4 turn clockwise,
until snug.
Slide the Dirty/Collection Tank into the unit. Replace the
Clean/Solution Tank.

The tabs on the side is what locks the tank on, if they won't release the tank, then you may have to take apart to get it off and replace the tank.

Ensure the Dirt Devil is connected to a working power supply if it does not turn on or operate. Check the fuse or breaker and replace or reset as necessary.

  • 2 Empty the dirty water tank if there is little or no suction. Turn off the Dirt Devil and grab the top of the dirty water tank. Push on the latch to release the tank and pull the tank off the base. Remove the lid and empty the dirty water into a sink. Replace the cap and hook the front of the tank onto the machine base. Hook the nozzle on the base so that the nozzle is level with the cleaner base. Push the back of the dirty water tank down and into position.


  • 3 Check the dirty water tank and empty as necessary if there is water leaking from the cleaner. Open the latch on the top of the solution reservoir and pull the reservoir forward. Fill with Dirt Devil brand cleaner to the fill mark. Fill the rest of the reservoir with hot water and close the cap. Replace on the base unit.
  • 4 Make sure the solution reservoir is seated firmly in the base unit if there is no cleaning solution dispensing from the unit. Fill the solution tank with cleaner and water if the level is low.
  • 5 Examine the hose and nozzles for possible obstructions if the carpet cleaner does not seem to be operating correctly. Remove any blockages.

    Just got spinscrub this afternoon and worked great until had to empty dirty water. Now there is no suction at all. Have tried to find clogs and nothing to be found. Am about to return the damn thing!!!


    ok 3 things to check before re-boxing it up.

    1) make sure that the lid is on properly. it should go on with the 2 tabs at the front of the machine, then click into place at the back of the machine.

    2) when you emptied it, sometimes the dirt channel will fall out. This allows for the suction to go between the dirty tank and the clear channel for the water to be sucked back up.

    3) when you remove the dirty water tank again, look down inside the machine for a circular hole. there should be a rubber gasket on it to seal up the tank for your suction. If it has come loose or is missing, retrace your steps between the machine where it was last used and the sink or wherever you dumped out the dirty water.

    Good luck,
    Mark

    Powerwash Powerbrush machine not sucking


    It might be clogged, but you would be able to see the clog through the clearview water suction area. There are a couple areas to check:
    1. The black gasket where clearview water collecting unit and the base's front meet.
    2. Check if you're getting sufficient suction: remove the water collecting unit. When you turn on the the unit, you'll feel suction out of a black hose pointing upwards next to the grey dial. If you're not getting sufficient suction you need to check that all the gaskets are seated properly. there are 3 gaskets: (1) an orange one seated between the black hose and the base unit (2 and 3): On the bottom of the unit there is a removeable panel. This panel has a gasket (red) and inside there is a white gasket.

    Bissell Power wash /powerbrush sprays the carpet ok ,but when empty doesn't fill up with any dirty water from the carpet .Is there anything I am not doing correctly


    It sounds like the suction isn't working right. Check the dirt tank to make sure it is on correct and check the red plastic filter on the dirt tank to make sure that it isn't clogged.

    I have never used a shampooer before when I use it it says to empty out dirty water. I don't have any left. My tank is empty. Am I doing something wrong.


    Suggest that you do the following.
    Remove the TOP ("Clean water") tank. Fill it 1/2 full of water. Put the top on the clean water tank and place it back on the machine.

    Release the machine handle and remove the cover of the "dirty" water tank. Inspect the back of the tank to be sure that the vacuum adapter in located in the rear of the dirty water tank. If not-that is your problem. If yes, restore the top to the dirty water tank.

    Power the machine on.
    On a kitchen floor, power the machine on. Pull the trigger and hold it for about 30 seconds. You should see water gathering around the brushes. If not, that is a problem.

    With water around the brushes, release and lower the handle and and move the machine over the water. It should vacuum the water into the dirty water tank.
    Is all of that happening?

    I have a billell Pro Heat 2X without a manual. How do I fill it and what ratio water to cleaner?


    The cleaner goes into the small bottom at the very rear of the machine. It is uses full strenght (don't add any water to it). You add clean water into the bottom clear plastic section on the front of the machine. The clean water bladder is soft plastic and it is filled from the top. When you start using the machine, the dirty water will get suctioned into the section surrounding this bladder. The machine will stop working when either the bladder is empty or the dirty water section is full. Remove the entire plastic section to dump out the dirty water.

    My Bissell Dirtlifter Powerbrush carpet cleaner will not roll. The back wheels roll fine, but when you put the machine down flat, the front part (where the roller is) sticks and will not roll.


    I had the same problem. It would pull backwards but not go forward. A closer examination revealed the clear plastic part on the bottom in the very front of the machine had popped loose on one side.
    If you look at the front of the machine, there is the clear plastic part on top where you see the dirty water being sucked up. The bottom half that creates the channel for the vacuum is where it came loose. It wouldn't create enough suction to draw the water up either. By taking out the two screws that hold the top part in place and removing it, I was able to snap the bottom back in. Works fine now. Hope this helps.

    Hoover steam vac not sucking water back up i have super wet floors and no water in recovery tank


    I think it is the gasket on top and bottom of the plastic chanel that takes the water up to the dirty water holding tank , Part of the rubber gasket is missing on both the top and bottom. This will alow
    air to come in and thus you loose the suction to empty the water into the dirty water bin. My unit is hoover steam vac model F60220-900. I need to know where to get the gaskets.
