After replacing pump water comes out in short squirts. It seems to come out of pump in steady stream but short squirts at nozzles including hand held.


Check your filters. Flow Indicator Filter: Turn Flow Indicator Cap counter-clockwise to remove, lift rotor and filter out. Clean filter and replace in reverse order.

Vax carpet washer deluxe leaks from bottom of water tank, somewhere between coming out of the tank and going into the jet to squirt on the floor. pissing me off - any help would be great!


This is a common problem known by repairers. What happens is residue gets stuck in the seals. The next time you use the machine and press the trigger the seals stay open and water leaks continually. It was suggested that maybe after you finish using the machine you do a whole tank of plain water to rinse it out but I haven't had any luck with that. I am stuck with a machine that doesn't work.

Dirt Devil Featherlite carpet shampooer won't release solution


Had the same problem only after 2 uses, called the 1 800# said that soap may have "gummed" up the line did everything they said but didn't work. Would cost more in service repair if I could find a authorized dealer to fix than I paid for the machine. Would not recommend this machine to anyone.

No mixture coming in contact with carpet from machine but coming when tools are used


Does water squirt out of the hose nozzle, if it does, then check the heater inside the handle asm. Make sure that where the tubes hook up to it are not clogged. If water doesn't squirt, check for the seal at the bottom of the tank, it needs to be on the tank, not in the hole, this is for the soap bottle also, there is a seal on the bottom of it as well. The flow indictor cap is leaking air or maybe is too tight. If you had the top cover off, make sure that the tubes are routed right so as not to get pinched when the cover is put back on, the smart mix knob should be in the water setting and that the piston is on the bottom of the smart mix knob. Pump is bad. Try running a mix of vinegar and water to see if that unclogs the lines. Is the top cover and the base tight together in the back, sometimes the top breaks loose and it will raise up and it can't spray, just re-fasten it down.

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.

Check the belts first, if ok, does water squirt out of the hose nozzzle, if it does then the heate in the handle asm. is clogged where the tubes hook up to it. If no water squirts out, the the pump isn't working. Pull the top cover off, check all tubes to make sure there is no clog. Make sure the tubes are routed right so as not pinch one, also make sure the piston is mounted on the smart mix knob. and the knob is in the water setting before putting the cover back on. The cap for the flow indictor is leaking are or screwed on too tight. The seal at the bottom of the tank is not on the tank and is missing or sitting in the hole where the water goes.
