It's been awhile since I have used my shampoo system on my Ultimate G series Kirby. Well, as instructed I took it apart and cleaned it. Now I can?t figure out where to put the ?screen cap? and ?sponge filter?. I have my manual in front of me and the only place it shows the filter and sponge (page 35 in the manual) is when it?s been taken apart to clean. It doesn?t show where to put it back. I don?t know what I would do without all the pictures in the Kirby manual. HELP! Thanx. Visual Kirby Vacuu

My dyson has two gears as it were! One for normal suction and the other for deeper cleaning. There used to be a real difference in the performance between the two options, also the noise changed when you swithched from one to the other. This no longer occurs. I have taken it apart according to your instruction, cleaned all the various bits but still no luck. The cat fur is still clearly visible despite my best efforts. Can you please help!!!!
