Could be a clog somewhere or you need new filters. Change the belt if it's over a year old.

Copied this from the owners manual off of Hover internet site. Brushrolls are not spinning 1. Belt needs to be changed. 1. Refer to how to change belt. 2. Something is jammed in the brushroll. 2. Remove jammed item from cleaner with unit turned off and unplugged. There is a diagram on page 26 of the owners manual if you have it. I have the same kind of machine. One thing i have found with this type of unit it likes to be clean. So you may have to just take it apart and clean it out. You also could take it to a repair shop to have done if you are not sure how to do it.

Most anything can be fixed if the needed parts are available. You will first need to examine closely to determine where the water is coming from to determine what the problem may be. It is most likely a valve, hose, seal, fitting, tank, etc.

It seems it must be blowing out from somewhere. Try to figure out where by feeling for air blowing to try to determine where it's coming from and why.

Hoover SteamVac brushes not spinning
This video might help ... it is a related model.
The usual problem with these brushes is that they stop spinning ... not that they will not stay in.
As shown in the video ... they just clip back in by pressing the whole unit in to the housing. The protruding square pin in the middle does need to line up with the housing drive ... or it will not press in. The two alignment posts need to be in the correct position also. The brushes need to be hand wriggled to help alignment so the square peg will enter the square drive hole.
If you are successfully getting the brush unit all the way in ... and it does turn when the unit is turned on ... all I can think of is that the alignment posts have somehow broken...

I recommend blowing it out with a air compressor, some can be washed with water but water can make the fine dust pack into the pores. If it is over a year old it should be replaced as should the other filter or filters depending on your specific model.

Probably a poor design factor that really cant manage the dog hair in the first place !! I always suck a few small coins up and you can hear if they get a unrestricted journey to the dust bag , if you have a blockage you will not hear them clank around as they will get jammed !! this will let you know that your machine is blocked or jammed up causing poor suction !

Try one thing... the filter cover must be clicked into place. I thought it just sat on top, but it has to be pushed into place.

Check the hose coming out of the floor assembly. It tends to split, keeping it from picking up the water
