Open Question

The hose on my Max Extract 77 is broken down at the base so there is no suction to the hand tools...s there a way to replace the hose?

I know this is an older model but I want to try to fix it before looking at newer ones.

Hoover max extract 77. It is leaking or spraying water only(sprayers)when in upright position after shampooing. Doesn't leak when turned off/on but does from catch basin under tank when pedal released

Obviously, it is either not fully inserted or the seals are leaking.

These shampooing devices are very picky about how you insert each part. They are not as temperamental as their older models, which I tossed in the garbage after getting a heated model, but they can still be difficult to handle.

Now, on difference is when the handle is upright all suction goes to the attachment hose. The further you lean the handle down the more suction goes to the lower compartment but you said it is leaking from the bottom. I suspect your supply chamber is the leaking area. You are just noticing is more because the lower section has less suction you suck up any leak before you see it.

Why doesn't the water pick up on my carpet shampooer???

Hi Julie! If the cleaner is not picking up the dirty water this usually means something is not sealed off properly. Try these steps below to restore suction to your cleaner.

1. Remove the clean water tank. Recline the handle & let the handle lie down on the floor.
2. Remove the dirty water tank. Check that the dirty water tank cap is on the dirty water tank and tightened closed.
3. Clear the filter screen of any hair or debris.
4. Remove the nozzle. Clean the nozzle of any hair or debris.
5. Located on the machine behind the nozzle is a 2nd filter screen. Clean it of any hair or debris.
6. Replace the nozzle.
7. Replace the dirty water tank. Press down on all sides so that it is flush to the cleaner base.

Give it a try! The suction should be restored to your cleaner. If not I have included a video link where you may view these instructions. Hope this helps! Loss of Suction Won pick up Hoover Max Extract 77 FH50230 FH50222...

Hoover max extract 77 wont pick up water

did you make sure the dirty water tank is cleaned out and the cap is on?also did u check the clear kinda hour glass shaped thing in the front where the water sucks up at to make sure there is no blockadge?

Will not **** the water off the carpet.

If the carpet cleaner won't "Extract" water from the carpet, try using the upholstery / hand tool. If you have suction there, your selector switch / knob is either in wrong position, or broken. There may also be a tear in the hose on the inside of the cleaner, or the waste tank is not sealing well.
