Having problems with your Kirby Ultimate G Bagged Upright Vacuum ?
While shampooing w/my Kirby the water/shampoo comes out to fast.
\015 I can barely get a 1/4 of our living room done anymore without all the water draining out. Then my carpet is soaked and takes days to dry.\015
On the water tank, there is a screen that attaches to the water tank itself, then the hose connects to over this screen on to the water tank. Then is also a round sponge that goes between the water tank and the vacuum base. Are both the screen and sponge there. If not, that's more than likely you problem. The screen is what creates the "Dry Foam".

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

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 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
