    Have managed to resolve the problem. There is a tie around the bottom that you can remove and then it all comes apart and you can then wash the main bag. You can get a new tie from your local Kirby dealer.



    Do not wash the bag with any detergents just put it through a couple of rinse cycles through your washing machine and it comes out looking like new.



    You need to wait until it is totally dry before you put it back together again.

Kirby Ultimate G Diamond edition vacuum. We were told you can wash the outer bag. Is that true? How do you remove the bag to do this?


Twist the bag emptor left to remove it from the upright then your need a sharp narrow pointy object (like a metal dental pick cost $1 in most stores) push it under the plastic band around the rubber on the bottom of the cloth bag roll it across and take off the plastic tie once off pull the rubber bottom part of the bag emptor take out the inner plastic tube and zip the bag put in the washer by itself and wash with soap and softner and let hang dry you can also wash the inner plastic tube with hot water and fabuloso I recondition kirbys and do it all the time.

I have a G4 and the plastic at bottom of bag is cracked


Hi There,

Well sort of. For the G4, the bottom boot is sold with the internal fill tube that inside of the outer bag, where the paper bag connects. These two parts are sold complete as an assembly already put together. You'll just need to take off the strap at the bottom of the boot that holds the outer bag onto the boot. This strap is sometimes difficult, and sometimes it's easier to just purchase a new strap and install it.

Here are direct links to the parts that you'll need on our website:

Kirby G4 Mini Em-Tor with Fill Tube Assembly. Kirby Part # 199493S


And here's the bag strap that you may just want to purchase so you can just cut the old one off:

Kirby Vacuum Bag Clamp. Kirby Part # 196599S

I have a Kirby G4. I have noticed the last few days when trying to vacuum that it is blowing more than it is sucking up. I put on a new bag to make sure it wasn't too full. I also put on the hose and...


take the mini emptor off(plastic piece on bottom of cloth bag) this is done by rotating it away from the body of the machine. There is most likely a clog there. Also take the brush head off and inspect fan for chips or cracks this will also reduce suction. let me know if you need further assistance

Plastic tube inside fabric bag broke cleanly at the base.


It can be fixed by yourself, if you are some-what handy. The part is called snap fill tube and the part number is 1900399 your local vac repair shop should be aware of this number part sell for about $9.00 to $14.00 hope that helps.

How do I detach the cloth bag from my Kirby G3 Vaccuum to wash it


I would clean the bag by blowing it out with compressed air (lightly). If you do wash it, do it by hand in room temp water and air dry. I'm not too sure how to remove the whole bag on that model. You should call your local vacuum dealer to inquire, and ask the same question you asked here on Fixya.

The bag latch on my Kirby Generation 3 broke. How do I get the old one off to replace it


at the bottom of the bag, there is a zip tie around the plastic part that turns & snaps on to the exhaust hole of the vac. also take a flat screwdriver & pull up the rubber under the zip tie...all the way around, like u would take a bike tire off a rim . then pull the bag holder/tube thru the bottom, then vise versa, when u put it back on.
