Why won't my Bissell pro heat wont suck up water with the upholstery tool


You may have a valve that switches from floor suction to tool suction. This could be not deployed or stuck.

My attachments tool has no suction. I made sure I have selected tools and I cleaned the lint filter. There is definitely suction in the machine, but it does not come through the attachments hose.


Check the attachment hose for any hindrances like clogged with dirt or object. Also a big hole cracks in hoses will cause suction to divert it outside. Clean the machine to make sure it will provide suction powerfully. Regularly clean it and you will assure it's will perform better.
Thanks for asking.

Is there a switch to turn-off the tools so that


On the Hoover U6311-900 there is no switch that turns off the suction to the tool hose. That hose is attached to the head of the vacuum on the side via a spring loaded "door". Just twist the hose to remove it, the door will close and you will have full suction again.

No suction for upholstery hose


http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/F5914900.pdf try priming your hose

Before using tool
It may be necessary to remove air from
the system (“prime the pump”) so the
clean solution will flow to the tool. Follow
these steps:
1. Attach tool to hose and turn the carpet
cleaner ON.
2. Put the tool on a hard surface or
against your hand to block off the suction.
3. Wait a few seconds (can take up to
15 seconds). Then squeeze the trigger
and begin cleaning.
Follow the instructions on pages 14 and
15 for the appropriate cleaning task.

Have used my Bissell Powerwash Deluxe 4 or 5 times now no suction


We found that the tool wand was blocked, although only used once. But when that was cleared suction was reinstated. Thanks anyway!!

No suction for use of crevice tools, running hot, then shut off


Obviously no suction in hose would indicate a blockage, over heating is a breaker that shuts off the machine when it over heats. There is no way to clean hose the on this model because the hose does not detach at either end, therefore I had to employ the use of the good old wire hangar. Job complete up and running, with good suction. It is amazing what a prayer to God can do.
