It can be fixed by yourself, if you are some-what handy. The part is called snap fill tube and the part number is 1900399 your local vac repair shop should be aware of this number part sell for about $9.00 to $14.00 hope that helps.

This is an old post but I thought it might help anyone having this problem now to post the solution.
The internal water pump feeds two water delivery hoses on the Bissell Spot Bot. One goes to the spout located in the center of the rotating brushes.
The other feeds the spout located on the underside of the brush at the end of the hose.
There is a water shut off valve that is actuated when you pull the plastic tube at the end of the hose out of the plastic tube it is fitted into during storage.
When you pull the end of the hose out of this plastic fitting a button inside is no longer depressed and a valve shuts of the water flow to the rotating brushes. If this valve is clogged with gunk it will not release when the hose end is pulled out and water will still come out of the rotating brushes even in manual mode.
This is a mechanical fault not an electronic fault.
To resolve the issue you can mix a solution of vinegar and hot water and fill the water tank with it.
Put the rotating brushes over the sink. Remove the hose and fit the scrub brush to the end.
Start the machine in manual mode. The sink will catch the water coming from the rotating brushes area.
Now point the hose end at the sink to catch the water and pull the water release trigger. While holding the trigger press and release the black button inside the tube that holds the hose end during storage. This moves the internal workings of the valve.
Do this till all the water is gone.
At some point during this procedure you will notice that when you release the black button the water will stop coming from the rotating brushes.
You problem is now solved.
If this does not work after two tanks of hot water and vinegar then the valve would need to be removed and soaked in a solution or replaced.
This is a much more complex procedure that requires disassembly.
Maybe a youtube video is in order.
If your lucky the procedure above will solve the problem.

1) Make sure there is water in the solution tank.
2) Try priming the machine by instructing the consumer to squeeze the trigger
repeatedly for 1 to 2 full minutes. Important: If you cannot
squeeze the trigger all the way in, remove the tank from the back of the
machine and then try squeezing the trigger with the tank removed. There is an
internal valve that could be sticking. By removing the solution tank and squeezing
the trigger, it should break it loose, allowing the trigger to be fully depressed.
3) Make sure the open end of the siphon tube in the solution tank is not pushed into the
side of the tank, covering the end of tube. If it is, push the bend in the
Siphon tube toward the back of the solution tank.
4) Check to see if the siphon tube has become disconnected from the outlet fitting on
the inside of the solution tank. If so, you need to buy a replacement solution tank. Parts
can be found at www.bissell.com
5) Check to see if air comes through the spray tip by repeatedly squeezing the trigger
with solution tank off the unit. If not, spray tip may be clogged. Try and unclog
spray tip with a pin or paper clip.
If still no spray, please check the following:
a) Make sure the solution tank is installed properly.
b) Check to see if black O-ring is present on rear connector to solution tank.
