Will water squirt out the hose? If it does then the heater in the handle may be clogged and not allowing water to flow. The heater is in the handle. There are a number of things that can cause your problem. If no clogged heater and lines, and no water from the hose, then the pump or pump belt maybe bad, the cap for the flow indictor is leaking air and not sealing, the gasket at the bottom of the tank isn't on the tank, either missing or sitting in the hole in the base where the tank sits.

Detergent doesn't dispense.


Water will clean carpets but not very well. For the best results don't put any cleanser in your machine. Soap can clogged up the lines in your machine. When you have soap dispensed or or in the water in your machine you are squirting it onto the carpet and sucking it back up at the same time...the soap and water isn't on the carpet long enough to clean well unless you keep going over the same area many times. To clean better it's really important to vacuum thoroughly going slowly in multiple directions to get as much dry, gritty soil and hair and dust out as possible, it's easy to get these soils out when the carpet is dry if your vacuum is working properly. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum.
Get a spray bottle or sprayer and put hot tap water in it, add the cleaning solution to the hot water and spray enough on the carpets to get the face fibers damp...let the hot water solution sit on the carpets 5 or 10 minutes and then use your machine to clean and rinse the soap, water and loosened soils from the carpet fibers. Repeat if necessary. Your carpets will be cleaner because you allowed adequate dwell time for the soap and water to work on the sticky greasy soils attached to the carpet fibers and stay clean longer because the soap is rinsed out of the carpets. Your carpet cleaning machine will last longer too because the water lines, pumps, spray jets, heaters, etc can't get clogged with soap gunk if you don't put soap in it. The method I'm describing is how the best professional carpet cleaners clean carpets. Hiring a quality carpet cleaner cost more up front but the carpets may stay clean two or three times longer, saving a lot of money in the long run. If you clean your carpets using this dual process method you may do a better job with a small portable home or rented cleaner than hiring the average carpet cleaning professional who is trying to give you the lowest price.

I have a Hoover carpet cleaner that leeks the shampoo water onto the carpet, cannot control it


The machine is standing in the upright position with clean water in it. No power to the machine. If water is pouring out, again no power to machine, then the pump is cracked. I don't know the model number so I am thinking this has a gravity fed pump. It doesn't use electricity to work the pump. Once you pull the trigger water starts to flow. If the pump has a crack water will flow all the time. Hope this helps!

No water getting to brushs


Hi! Sometimes it is necessary to prime the trigger under the handle to get the solution flowing. To prime the trigger, recline the handle and pump trigger about 60 times. Then, power the cleaner on and squeeze the trigger for about 60 seconds. The solution should start to dispense. If it is still not dispensing there may be an issue with the pump assembly on the cleaner. We would recommend taking the cleaner in to a Hoover authorized service center for repair. Follow the link to locate one nearest you. Service Center Locator

Hope this helps!

My Bissell carpet shampooer will not dispense water or cleaning solution, nor is the "flow indicator" spinning


most of the Bissell carpet cleaners that have the water heating feature stop pumping water at one time or another. Make sure the belt is still on the pump and if it is then the problem is probably in the heater core in the handle. Hard water deposits plug the tiny little water ways inside the heater core. Pull the heater core and take it apart and clean it with a strong scrub brush and I think vinegar works for cleaning I was told. I just use soap and a brush. Then flush all your lines with hot water. The cause is from hard water deposits or leaving the soap in the cleaner after you use it. Both will stop it from pumping water

Bissell carpet shampooer wont dispense water


Bad Pump. You pump is where the belt attaches to spin the brushes and also puts water on the floor. Take it to you local Best Buy to be serviced or a local appliance shop which may service it.

Cleaner will not come out of dispenser when handle is pressed.


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

It seems that you may have a bad pump. If you'd please give me the model number of the Bissell, I can give you the parts schematic so you can see how it's taken apart. We'd be happy to help you in explaining how to replace the pump should you have any questions.
