Having problems with your Hoover F6212-900 / F6215-900 SteamVac Agility Upright Vacuum ?

Dirty water is not going into the tank, it's leaking out the bott

\015 The dirty water is not going into the dirty tank, instead it is leaking out the bottom of the unit and leaving HUGE puddles on my floor!\015

Answers :

I would check the lower hose assembly. it seems they wear out where the handle closes and opens put the handle down and look in to see if its broke. if so its only like 20 for a new one and a pain to get the old one out....
Check the little door at the back of the unit where the hose attachment plugs in. It has to be shut really tightly and it takes a quick fist smack on it to get mine to "click" and be shut. If that isn't sealed it could leak both clean and dirty water to the floor.

Also, take the dump tank off, check the filter (near the top where the dump tank connects on the machine side) is clear. Also make sure the rubber seal around the filter isn't loose or cracked. Then put the dump tank back on making sure the bottom is seated well first and then CLICK the top into place when you push it to the upright/in place position.

If you are using the hose attachment, make sure it is clicked into place tightly. I have to put one hand on the front of the machine to push toward the back while pushing the other hand on the hose to get it to click tightly in place. If it's not really snapped in there, it will leak.

Good luck!

I have the Hoover max Extract 77 and when I'm cleaning the carpet, the clean water tank leaks on the floor, even if I'm not squeezing the trigger. The clean tank doesn't leak when I fill it, but once I place it where it fits and start using the vacuum, the clean water drains out on the floor. The dirty tank fills up, so the suction works, but, I don't know what is going on?

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet


Check that the suction cone is not blocked. Check that the filter or hose to the bladder isn't blocked as well. ... Vacuums
