Soap dispenses, water won't

You're so kind to provide solutions to the people who have problems and I thank you.

I've had this machine about 1 1/2 years and it's worked well until now. The water won't come out of the tank bag. The soap does, though. I've checked and cleaned the belts - they're fine. I ran warm water through the hose attachment and the two dispensing points in the unit but it still won't work. The valve under the water tank looks good and will releae water when I manually push it. I understand that it may be the pump? Any other solutions? If this replacement costs over $100, I may just buy a new cleaner. Any brand recommendations for any up to $300.

Could be the pump, but this model clogs up easily. You could try taking the noozles off and blow thru them to see if they are clogged or not. Other then that you may have to take it in for repair, It can be problem to find where it is clogged, if the noozles are ok that is. Unless you want to take it apart and try to find the problem yourself.

They all have problems. Hoover over Bissell, or Eureka. But it is hard to know which is better.

My machine would dispense water and not soap, turns out the gasket for the container was lodged inside the macine. The gaskets are rather large and it was nestled into the chasis, and appeared as if should've been there. Problem was it wasn't.

With the gasket problem my machine behaved rather oddly. It would dispense water only if initially turned on in that position, and during this time it would release solution only in the "rinse" position and if the solution only trigger was depressed.

F7210-900 Steam Vac. will not put out water when switch is in wash position but it will put out water when the rinse position


There are two electrical solenoids inside the hood assembly. One opens to dispense rinse water, and the other dispenses the soap and water solution. It is likely that the soap and water solenoid has failed and will require replacement. A "work around" fix for this is to mix the soap solution in the clear water tank ( 5 oz. of shampoo per gallon of water ), and shampoo that way until the solenoid can be replaced.

Soap solution valve on wand is not working.


No quick fix. Just make sure to run clean water through it before storing. Also, soak it in hot water, when it becomes plugged. I have dismantled my a few times, to clean it out, but have kept it clean to void future problems.

Soap is not dispensing out of the soap dispenser on the bissell


Pour some hot water in the machine and see if the hose is clogged. Is the pump making any noise when you hit the switch like it is trying to pump?

Cleaner Solution Not Dispensing On Bissell 9200 Pro Heat Cleaner


I haven't had this particular issue (yet... knock on wood!) with my Bissell, but remember that the shampoo will not dispense with no water in the tank (the most common cause of this issue because sometimes you think it has water but it doesn't) or water not flowing through the machine due to clogged sprayers-- another issue-- but since you're getting water on the floor that is not your issue-- or with the handle locked in position. If none of that fixes it, try removing the shampoo container, stand over a sink, and push your finger up inside the grommet where the shampoo container mates with the Bissell. Shampoo should dribble out. If it doesn't, unscrew the grommet (holding the container upside down of course so the shampoo doesn't gush out) and use your finger and running water to try and the grommet cleaned out.

If this isn't helping, it may be that your soap pump or soap dispensing trigger switch are defective.

Bissell 1699 ProHeat Clear View uses very little soap.


The valve at the bottom of the soap tank may have gone bad, Also try running a mix of water and vinegar(not on carpet) to see if it will clean the system out. The system may just need cleaning out.

Not dispensing water and no suction


I'm assuming the belts are OK.... Your heater is clogged. Unplug the machine and let it sit for 30 minutes. Take the handle apart, there will be a 4 inch by 8 inch metal box inside. This is the heater. Remember I said to let the machine sit for 30 minutes? If you didn't, the heater may be EXTREMELY hot!! Disconnect the two hoses going into it, and clean the metal pieces out (that the hoses connected to) with a needle or very small drill bit. You may want to remove the 6 or 8 screws holeding the heater together and remove the cover to clean it out. Reassemble and fill both tanks with VERY hot water ONLY and run the machine to rinse the entire system.

To prevent future reoccurences... use only Bissell extraction shampoos. Never put anything in the detergent tank except shampoo. (And only water in the water tank) Mixing chemicals with anything else turns the water/detergent mix to sludge. Also, when finished shampooing, put ONLY water in both tanks, and run the machine until one of the tanks run out of solution. Doing this rinses the hose lines out and prevents hardening of the solution in the heater ports.

I've fixed these machine for years. No dispensing is almost always the heater clogged.

This could be due to dried out soap in the works below the dispenser. Try cleaning the hole, putting plain water in the soap dispenser to clean it out further. You could just put some soap in with the water. Be sure to run lots of rinse water through afterward to clean out the heating unit.

This also happened to us. I just got a new one in the mail - did it over the internet on their website. Haven't tried it yet so hope it is the solution to our problem.
