Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?

No Suds! It just Spills the water

\015 We recently bought a Kirby machine, and it's, I believe, the best vacuum ever. I've tried to use the shampooing system, and I've found some complications. Instead of spreading foam, it only spills the water, emptying the water tank in approximately a 4' X 4' square. You can see on the hose the water running, and just a tiny amount of suds. I've carefuly read the manual and seen the video thoroughly in search of an answer. I don't know, maybe I'm skipping an important step.\015\012\015\012Is there any way somebody can help me? I'd appreciate it.\015

There is a little plastic round piece with a mesh screen that should go on the hose part of the shampooer that connects to the tank...make sure that its seated properly since it's this mesh screen that produces the suds
Thanks everyone for your tips. I found the reason why it my vacuum wasn't making enough suds: it was because I was using another carpet cleaning shampoo brand. I guess your only to use Kirby brand shampoo. Maybe other brands aren't formulated to create as much suds as Kirby.
Thank you very much for your tips though.

My Steam mop (model 90Y5F) is dripping water from the join at base of water bottle. It started off small and is now rapidly increasing. I spend more time going over the spills than actually mopping. Is there a way to prevent it as the little area where the water is meant to drip thru is flooded - I still get plenty of water through to the pad though.

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

Shampoo-er This seems to be a common problem, the shampooer is putting out alot of water and hardly any suds. I read through the posts about the little filter that sometimes gets out of place and I think I found it in the box - is it about 1" diameter hard plastic ring around very fine mesh? If so where exactly does it go? Some posts say in the hose, and others say in the opening of the tank. Or does it go in the place where the hose attaches to the tray? I also found a round sponge in the box o

I have a Bissell Pro 2x carpet cleaner. The water heats properly as well as spraying the cleaning product. However, when I go to suction the water from the carpets, the 2 in 1 water tank bladder works properly but there is no dirty water outside the bladder. I have only used this carpet cleaner ~ 5 times and in the beginning I had to empty the suctioned water quite frequently as it was dirty and it could not not hold any more water. So I have done 1 room and all the dirt remains in the carpet
