My Philips AquaTrio Vacuum Cleaner leaks water

Updated on 16 August 2022
If your Philips AquaTrio Vacuum Cleaner leaks water, this can have several causes. Please look at the picture to see which model you have and find the information below

1. AquaTrio 9000 Series

If your Philips AquaTrio 9000 Series Vacuum Cleaner leaks water, there can be several reasons. It is normal that the appliance may leak a little water when carrying it over the floor (holding it in the air).

Find out what other reasons and solutions are possible in the following lines:
The AquaTrio 9000 Series Vacuum Cleaner was standing still while switching it off
The appliance can leave a small puddle of water on the floor when you switch it off. You can reduce the size of the puddle by activating the water absorption mode* before switching your AquaTrio 9000 Series off. Move the appliance forwards and backwards a few times with the water absorption mode activated (see image below). If needed, you can remove the last drops with a cloth.
Note:
  •  Absorption mode*: older models have a normal wet mode and intense wet mode, but no water absorption mode.
  • When you use the water absorption mode, no more water comes out of the appliance and the suction power increases. After 45 seconds, if you do not take any action, the appliance automatically switches back to normal wet mode. 
The clean water tank is overfilled
Do not fill the clean water tank beyond the MAX indication. If you do, water may spill from the clean water tank when you fasten the cap 

There is a crack in one of the tanks
If there is a crack in one of the water tanks please take your AquaTrio 9000 Series to a Philips service center or contact the Consumer Care Center.

The dirty water tank is not connected correctly
Please make sure that the dirty water tank is connected correctly before using the appliance or running the AUTOCLEAN. You should hear a “click” sound when connecting the dirty water tank.

The AquaSpin nozzle is not placed correctly in the AUTOCLEAN & Storage Station
Please make sure the AquaSpin nozzle is placed in the middle of the tray

The upper body of the dirty water tank was tilted too far backwards or the AquaTrio is placed on its side
