The original problem was, How do I attach the upholstery attachment to the cleaner. I see where
the water connection is, but not where to attach the hose part.,
The solution to attaching the upholstery attachment to the Hoover Steam Vac cleaner was excellent for steps 1 and 2. However, in step 3, I can not simply slide the upholstery attachment straight down. It gets stuck and does not connect to the bottom connector and is stuck in midair. It seems like I am doing something wrong. My Hoover model steam vac model number is F5900-900.
The solution given in steps 1,2, and 3 where I have a problem with step 3 is as follows;
What is NOT easily visible is the connection for the vacuum hose. That's because the machine needs to be "reconfigured" before the hose can be attached. To "reconfigure" the machine:
1) Remove the cover off the waste water tank and notice how things appear--it will soon be important.
2) Find and remove the "panel" on the front of the waste water tank by sliding it straight up and out.
3) Replace the panel with the connector by sliding it straight down. When finished the top should look something like it did in step 1). This assures that the dirty water will be vacuumed into the waste water tank.

no solution, hoover is by far the most rediculous machinery... it says its as easy as filling it up and using it as a vacuum.. but it doesnt show how the hell you fill it up, there are two possible places where water and solution obviously enters and leaves... yet niether of them open up for fluids to be put in
and of course the instructions dont tell you how to fill it up
no wonder it has only a 30 day money back "guarentee"
because it takes 30 days for the buyer to realize that it doesnt work
so you can spend 300 on this faulty product.. or spend 300 on something that wont infieriate you

Yes, you do... only the 'motor protection filter' in the bag compartment is meant to be user cleaned.
Here's a manual, with a parts diagram near the end, if it's of use.
Please rate if this helps :)

While the blower has different source that the sucking of water, the passage for the sucking of water needs to be cleaned to eliminate any blockage within the passage.
