The trigger/valve does not control the flow of fluuid from the tank to the brushes,. The valve is always open regardless of the trigger position. It appears(visually) that the rigger operates the linkage to the valve assembly but the valve fails to close. I assume the valve is designed to be normally closed but it apparently is always open and the mechanism fails to close when the trigger is released.

Re: Hoover model 6024-900 SteamVac
It maybe that a water line has come off, where does it appear to be running out? Bottom of the tank, or down below, Bottom of the tank may have a bad seal or has a crack under the the seal, on the platform where the tank sits on has 2 or 3 tubes that hook up to it, check to make wure they are on, or a line could have come loose at the bottom, there you would have to take the top cover off.

When you put the tank on it connects with the unit and opens the valve on the bottom of the tank to allow the water to flow check for debris hair etc around the connection, it is possible the seal itself is worn or bad and needs replacement but I think the trigger only lets air in the tank so the water will flow out by gravity, I'm not positive on this but mine works that way.
This sounds like a stuck solenoid. The Dual V models use solenoids to contol soap and water flow to the floor, along with a pump unit. If your unit is 12 months or less it is under warranty. I am not sure about the cost of the solenoid.
Remove the clean water tank and look in the opening just behind the black grommet. Operate the trigger - you should see the valve move downward as the trigger is pressed. If it is NOT moving, then you will need to have the trigger plunger shaft repaired/replaced
Let me start out with an apology. I did not ask my question very well - and you did not answer it as I needed.

The Machine storage tanks are 2 - one clean water, one dirty water.
I understand that, when OFF, no leaks happen.
I understand that when on a leak comes from "the side". Also, water comes from the bottom.
So, water comes out near the bottom brushes (even without trigger). Then, with trigger, MUCH water comes out near bottom brushes. Am I correct so far?
Water out the side concerns me. I am guessing that the bottom of the clean storage tank may have a small leak.
I am also guessing that the trigger valve (located in the small opening behind the black rubber seal that the clean water tank rests on) is not closing all of the way - or is broken (cracked).
Can you please remove the clean water tank and inspect the trigger valve with a torch (flash light). Can you see it open/close as you operate the trigger? Is it broken, cracked, or dirty?
If yes then it must be replaced. If no, the the storage tank is bad and must be repaired.
You inspect all of these things and you should be able to determine the failure. THEN, I an help you repair the failed item.

Operating the trigger does not dispense water into the spinning brushes - is that the problem?
If so, remove the clean water tank and look in the opening behind the black grommet that seal the water tank. Operate the trigger and look to ensure that the valve is operating (moves downward when trigger is pulled). If it does not move, the trigger shaft is stuck or broken and will need to be repaired.
http://geeksquad.fixya.com/ThreadView.aspx?prdid=40578&thid=661545 Hoover SteamVac Deep Cleaner Posted by Alex987 on Jun 10, 2008 I can't seem to figure out how to use it =( Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Hoover F5807 SteamVac Wet/Dry Vacuum. Well, there are 2 tanks, one is the water solution tank that is on top and the other is the water recovery tank of which is on the bottom. You use the trigger assm to release the water and the Hoover SteamVac works the best on the pull back. You can spry the water going forward but pull it back very slowly and let the brushes do the scrubbing for you and the dirty water pickup. There is a ball in the dirty water pup tank that will rise to the top and stop the water from coming in, @ that point you need to empty and rinse out the recovery tank and re-install. If you run out of solution the top tank cap or cover is the measuring cup to determine the amount of solution – usually it is one cap full and extremely hot water, there is a switch for the carpet and the upholstery, if the handle is in the released position then the brushes down below should be moving – just look in the brushes window and see if they are moving – if the handle is in the upright position then you can remove the attachment hose and then use the attachment and the revolving brushes will stop. I hope this will help you in working with the Hoover SteamVac. If not contact the Hoover Co and get an owner’s manual and give them the model # and serial #.

Check the ank valve to make sure when you push it in that water is coming out. The reservior asm, (the tank bottom sits on this)is bad or the rod in the handle isn't pushing the reservior asm when you squeeze the trigger.
Need help!!!!! Hoover F7425-900 SteamVac V2 Widepath Upright I read the manual and tried my new Hoover, the brushes spin, but the waters not going to the bottom tank, what does that mean and what can i do? I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. You could have a bad water release valve on your water tank of which holds the water, the trigger assm might not be connected, bent or broken. Check the trouble shooting owners manual --- also there are hoses that could be crimped or bent, or clogged or not connected, but it is my guess it is the water release valve. Try to back track the water from the holding tank and test all the valves on the system and you might find the problem by the process of elimination.

Check the valves at the bottom of the tank(43513026)also check for cracks in the tank(42272104). Another thing to check is the handle asm. is a rod that pushs on the resevoir asm(tanks sits on) to make sure that it is stuck in the on position. Depressing the trigger and watching, you should be able to see if it is moving up and down ok.
