Hi Jbeeson, you can add warm/hot water to the clean water tank for the heated cleaning effect. Fast drying for your carpeting is a combination of the water that the Dual Power extracts and air drying after the cleaning process. There is some warm air (motor exhaust) that the machine blows onto the carpet while in use. Hope this helps.

Question

How do I clean the part under the plastic due to lots of pet hair?

I love the Hoover Dual Power Carpet Washer, FH50900. It cleans very well. Even though I vacuum the carpet at least twice before I start using the Hoover there is still a lot of pet hair inside the machine. I can see it through the plastic on top of the brushes, however, I don't know how to get it out. I don't have an issue with pet hair it leaves behind while cleaning. I need help. Please, let me know what I can do. Thank you in advance!

I took mine outside and washed out the bottom with a water hose. I found turning the brushes by hand brought out dog hair or carpet lint that was in side the underside of it . After cleaning out with a hose and nozzle , it cleaned quite well.

I didn't want to leave mine that way either. So I laid it on the counter with the underside over the sink and sprayed it out with my sink sprayer (UNPLUGGED). Did pretty good job.

I would love to know the answer to this as well. The only thing I can think is to run a hose through that tube in the front - outside.

answer 4
The only way to clean under the top plastic part is you have to take apart under the machine. On the right side underneath there are seven screws. The plastic will come off and then you can take the belt and spinners off kind of like a vacuum. Once I took apart I picked the machine up and layed on my counter/sink and used my sprayer to clean the plastic and the tube. To clean the tube part you are talking about make sure and take the tank off. Then you will see the opening and I just put my sprayer in it. This is the one thing I dislike about this product other then that it is a great machine! Hope I helped.

Hi Keithw, the inlet tube can be rinsed out. We'd suggest placing the base of the machine into something that you don't mind getting dirty to catch the water (like a disposable baking sheet) removing the dirty water tank, and pouring some warm tap water down that tube to flush any carpet nap/debris out. That water will flow down the nozzle and into the sheet/pan. Hope this helps.
