Could be the cap and valve at the bottom of the detergent bottle may need to be replaced. Is the water spraying out ok? If it is, then I would suspect the detergent bottle.

A solution to many "non-spray" problems.


The Scotchguard is going to be dicey inside the Bissell, yes, as you have learned the hard way.

I think the Bissell and the Hoover shampoos sold for their carpet cleaning machines are reasonably safe to use in the Bissell. My own personal favorite for use with the Bissell is the Hoover Premium Pet Formula, which is pricey but effective even if you don't own pets. I also pre-treat stained areas with Resolve Carpet Cleaner, a few minutes before using the Bissell.

I don't know what will happen with your home brew containing Dove. It may work well.

Bissell steam cleaner will not spray shampoo


My Bissell stops releasing shampoo when the handle is lacked upright, when there is no water in the tank (the most common cause of this issue), or when water is not flowing through the machine because the sprayers are clogged.

Make sure the shampoo container grommet is releasing properly when you press the trigger. To check this, remove the shampoo tank from the Bissell, stand over a sink, and use a finger to push up inside the grommet on the shampoo container, the part of it that mates with the rest of the Bissell. Shampoo should dribble out when you do this. If it won't, the grommet may be clogged.

Water and shampoo run out with the trigger in the off position


From your description, you have a problem with your one of the solenoids that may be stuck open. this would require a shop repair.

How do I work this dam thing?????

I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
The Bissell has a holding tank to the solution and the recovery tank for the water and soap you pick up -- -both are removable for cleaning purposes – there is a trigger assm on the handle to release the Bissell Soap or detergent that you are using – (low sudsing) and there should be a switch on the bottom of the unit to activate the revolving brushes. So the best way to shampoo the rug is to do it on the back pull – when you pull back you are dispensing the water solution and shampoo by squeezing the trigger assm, the brushes are agitating the carpet and the vacuum part is picking up the water. This is about as simple as I can get it – please refer to the owners manual for the trouble shooting part of the manual or check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area and in the yellow pages under vacuums, or call the Bissell factory phone # or use the website.
