My carpet cleaner will not pick up any water at all, it sprays

Customer Question

My carpet cleaner will not pick up any water at all, it sprays th.e cleaner out just fine but will not suck up the dirty water. It is a hoover model number F5915-900 with the serial number being
110800323728. We have only used the cleaner about four times and it is about one year old. We bought it at Walmart but they will not take anything back after 90 days. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. We had one before that lasted 9 years. Thank You very much
