Customer Question

Hi Pearl, I have a Bissell Advanced carpet cleaner, Model 44l66. I am spraying the carpet, but it's not sucking up the dirty water into the container. Carpet looks cleaner, but I think the dirty water is still in the carpet and will dry with stains reappearing!! Can you help? Thank you *****

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! This is James, I'm an appliance repair technician with over 10 years of experience, I see the previous expert has opted out.

Start by checking the filter in the waste water compartment as this can get blocked up by debris \ fibres from the carpet and when blcoekd up its unable to vacuum up the water from the carpet.
