Whats the exact brand and model number of the unit.So as per that the problem can be detected exactly.also the water not picking this problem is related to various issues like,the suction blocked or the pump is leaking some where and loosing pressure.the motor is faulty or getting stuck up or loose wires to motor connection.any of the above can be possible.but if there is exact brand and model mentioned then ,it helps much to detect the fault as per the unit. Keep updated. Thanks.

My shampooed won't pick up ythe water


does your shampooer have a cap on the shampoo tank. Usually you take the cap off to let the shampoo out while shampooing and to pick up the water you put the cap back on to create a vacuum to suck the water off the floor..

Royal carpet extractor not picking up water well


Try to follow the suction from the machine through the dirty water tank to the front floor suction piece. Make sure the dirty water tank is seated properly. Make sure there are no suction leaks any where.

Won't pick up water from the clean water side


I couldn't view u'r clip but it seems if the pipe is blocked try to remove the blockage by using a hose where you spray hot water and normal dishwashing liquid, through the pipe, to unblock it. Just do not immerse the whole machine in water! Because I do not know what machine you have. Good luck my friend!

The Hoover Steamvac Widepath will NOT pick up water. The dispenser with cleaner DOES have water. The TANK that would receive the dirty water is NOT full. All tanks are on properly and the machine will...


Sounds like a clogged air path (no vacuum action) from the floor pick-up to the collection tank. Take the tanks off and deal with the vacuum problem alone. The collection tank should have a air exit vent--is it clear? Check the interior hose that you repaired--is it clogged? Remove the bottom plate and inspect the air path from it. Because this machine deals with water, clogs can become like concrete! Hope this helps!

Vacuuming up water with Shop Vac model 84M200


when picking up dry materials use the foam sleeve that slips on and the blue cloth (assuming there all blue) over it, there should be a ring that slides over blue cloth to hold it in place over the foam sleeve, for wet pick up u can use the foam sleeve minus the blue cloth but let it dry out before picking up dry stuff, you can pick up both wet and dry with a cartrige filter that looks simular to a car air filter and it slips over the foam sleeve, but let it dry out after picking up water before picking up dry cause itll just clog it up

To much water going out when shampooing and not picking any water up.


Follow instructions HERE.
If it is soapy water NOT FOAM coming out - make sure suds screen is installed.
If you get mountains of foam and it is absorbed into the rug by the time you are ready to pick it up - maybe you dispensing entire tank of soap before you go to pick it up. Do carpet in 6-10 foot wide sections.

Some carpets (especially Berber) are not easy to get the foam off...
