Having problems with your Craftsman 17762 Wet/Dry Vacuum ?

Wet/Dry Vac Leaking

\015 I have a Sears wet/dry vac and when I vacuum water there is a fine spray coming out of the air outlet and water drips around the rim of the cover. I have removed the filter and cleaned it and repeatedly removed and replaced the cover thinking that it wasn't seated correctly. Any suggestions? Thanks\015
