Scooba "filter is dry", not picking up water from floor

\015 Most of the water stays on the floor. The filter is dry when I go to clean it out. So water isn't going thru it. I do not feel air coming out the side opposite the plug, and I read that means there is a problem w/ the vacuum port. but I don't know what to do about it. I just want it to pick up the dirty water, y'know, clean my floor. What do I do?\015

My Bissell Pro Heat Pet will spray water but not pick it up when cleaning the carpet. Is there anything I can do to fix it? The furniture attachment hose picks up water well.

Hello, I have the same model. And though it is three years old, starting from the last month, it does not clean anything anymore. Cannot even pick up one single thing from the floor. Every dirt gets stuck in the hose. I cleaned the hose and cleaned the filters but it still does not pick anything up. Is three years its normal lifetime or do I have the change the filters, instead of cleaning them? Thanks.

We have two of these vacuums and both of them have experienced the same problems.

We are desperate to use our vacu
