Kirby vaccuum the kirby wash cycle does not pull the soap back up after dispensing shampoo
My guess is that the belt was not connected properly and the shampooer brush was not spinning.
Make sure that the brushes on the shampooer tray are spinning, that the belt is resting on the driveshaft. The suction alone will pull up some of the moisture but the brushes should be spinning to gently scrub the carpet and deposit any excess moisture into the tray.

I have a new Hoover Dual V steam vac that I bought from a neighbor who only used it once. I have only used it once since then and it worked great. This time, because I am pregnant, I bought some non-toxic cleaner that was much thicker than the very watery Hoover soap. This vac has a wash option and a rinse option. The rinse option works (sprays and sucks properly), but the wash cycle doesn't at all-neither soap nor water comes out. Nothing comes out, but it still sucks. I took everything o

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

For the first time, I tried using my Kirby Sentria shampoo attachment. I've lost the manual but found instructions online for making the swap from regular vac to shampoo-er and got it all assembled. The foam laid down just fine, however, when I run the vac back over the foam to pick it up, there is not a stitch of water showing up in the tray. First I thought maybe it was bc I hadn't put that much of the foam/water onto the carpet, but 12 hours later, the carpet is still wet in spots. Clearly

My Kirby shampooer - G4 - hardly used any water from the tank and no suds at all. Pet hair did blow out of the small slotted holes in the tray as I moved the shampooer back and forth, but the carpet was basically dry. I did vacuum before shampooing, so the brush part seemed to work great during shampooing, but no water! The small screen was stuck in the crook of the hose that attached to the tank so I did get that out and put it on the small hole on the tank, but it didn't make any difference. I

Brush turning slowly while shampooing. It starts out fast, but after a minute or 2 the brush is not spinning very fast. I have powered it off and let it cool down. I just started out so I can't believe the engine is over heating, just doing 2 rooms, can't even get through the first room. If I take the brush attachment off, then put it back on and then turn it on, it spins fast, but after a a few minutes, it's spinning softly/slowly again. Kirby diamond edition
