My Hoover Floormate Spinscrub will not dispense the cleaning liquid at all.
There does not appear to be any obstruction from the clean solution tank down to the bottom of the machine where it comes out above the floor. The only solution in the owners manual is to make sure that the tank is securely locked in position (which it is).
I had the same problem and was preparing to take it back, the last thing I tried was to 'reseat' the handle -- I removed it then snapped it very firmly back into place. That did it, it's working beautifully now!

Hi Mike! To check the filter on the Floormate deluxe, remove the dirty water tank and pull up on tank lid to separate from the base. Check foam filter for debris, if filter has debris, rinse it with water. To prevent internal damage make sure you are using only the Hoover Floormate detergent. If the machine is still noisy and smells bad we recommend taking it in to a Hoover authorized service center. Follow the link to find the nearest service center to you. Hope this helps!

First make sure that you are getting suction from the bottom of the
machine. Most of the time the squeegee is worn out which does not allow
it to pick up the water like it use to. Turn over the machine and
the squeegee. If it looks worn or bent then it may be time to replace
it. You may also consider replacing the filter. These are the two most
common parts that wear out.
The brushes are not designed to scub the floor, they only lightly touch the floor. Make sure the front nozzle is put on correcdtly. Make sure your filter is dry and clean. I wet filter will give poor suction down to the nozzel. Down load the manuel at Hoover.com. The model is located on the back of the unit. H3000, or H3010
With the tank off, can you see if the rod in the handle is hitting the spot where the tank sits on, if not then there is a problem in the handle. If it is, then the reservior asm may be bad, it is what the tank sits on.
