SOURCE: NO WATER OR SHAMPOO
I had a problem with no water or shampoo coming out of the main unit but did come out of the hand tool. Someone had the answer posted here and if I could find it, would refer you there as it was much more technical. My wording is more like, little red thingie under the water tank. Saved me buying parts or taking it in for service. Anyway, here goes:
Remove the water tank. On the base unit, there are two little red things, one on each side. Squeeze the clips together to remove the red things. There is a hole where each of these red things were. Clean these holes out from loose hair, dirt, etc. Then using a toothbrush or other small brush, clean the little red things. These are the actual sprayers. They can get clogged.
The poster that I got this from also explained how to remove the little red clips from the hoses and how to clean them, but they noted that it was pretty easy for the spring to shoot up inside the hose and to be real careful. I do not have the details on that. It was simple to remove and easy to clean, but you had to make sure and hold the spring. Mine worked without doing that but my husband took it apart anyway just to make sure it was all clean. You can search this site for the full description in more technical terms on the hoses and clips and cleaning them. It was on the fixya site.

SOURCE: I recently had my vaccum
This issue might be caused by different factors. And I'll give you some basic checking and troubleshooting that you may try to do to address the issue of having a low or almost no suction on the lower part of your machine.
1. First thing, check the dirt cup to make sure it is empty.
2. Your vacuum has 3 filters. Check out for debris on the inner and outer circular filters in the filter cup and the post-motor filter on the front of the machine. Also don't forget to check the upper-tank louvers. They may be removed and rinsed. Dirty filters will restrict air flow. To clean the filters:
4. If there is NOT good suction at the end of the hose with handle, remove the hose by twisting it off the back of the machine and check for suction on the vacuum. If the suction power is good, check the hose for cracks or splits and using a broomstick handle, push any dirt or debris through the hose.
Your problem may be something as simple as a broken drive belt or a filled dirt container. If you continue to experience low suction with your vacuum, please take your machine to a local BISSELL Authorized Service Center.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using Fixya.
