A: I got it hooked up the water is not coming thru so I can shampoo the stairs? I read the manuel, but nothing is coming out! Help
A: is it close by where you remove the front plate to clean the brushes?
A: Once it's hooked up as mentioned above, turn the machine on, leave it upright, and press the trigger on the handle to release soap & water. To suck the water up, let go of the trigger.
A: On the front above the nozzle is a small latch/hatch/access point that is colored differently than the surrounding base. Open that and connect the hose there. If you need further assistance, please reach out to us at Hoovercommunity@ttifloorcare.com we'll be happy to help! Thanks, Joseph - The Hoover Team
A: This is my favorite carpet cleaner ever! I've always used a mixture of either Mrs. Meyers, or Mrs. Meyers and 1/4 cup bleach (never bleaches my carpet, only santizes it) and I've used even laudry soap and bleach (small amounts of each) and have had exceptional results. I think they want you to use the Hoover brand cleaners for obvious reasons, but I've always used other methods when I ran out of the cleaner that comes with the machine. If your uneasy about the bleach mixture try a little on a small patch first. But I've always put about a 1/4 cup in my full water tank to sanitize my carpet. Love it.

A: There is an Auto-Trigger Float in the Dirty Water Tank that triggers when the tank is full. This causes a high-pitched noise, alerting you that it is time to empty the Dirty Water Tank.
A: No carpets only

A: Hello CC, The great thing about this unit being a triggerless model is that it automatically puts out the correct amount of water and solution for cleaning after every pass. This unit also features the added benefit of having a "dry only feature" to suck up any excess water that may be left over after cleaning. The Hoover Team
A: Hello rig47, Unfortunately, there is no option to have the brushes turned off on this model. The Hoover Team
