The Kirby shampooer isn't designed to be a extractor.What the shampooer does is create the foam,and the brushroll on the shampooer works it into the carpet.After the carpet is dry,(about an hour,)switch to the vacuum,and the vacuum picks up the dry foam.

My shampooer is not sucking the water back up what would cause this


Make sure the dirty water tank is seated properly. I know it sounds dumb, but I have the same shampooer and it does this if the tank is not on properly.

While the blower has different source that the sucking of water, the passage for the sucking of water needs to be cleaned to eliminate any blockage within the passage.

Powerwash Powerbrush machine not sucking


It might be clogged, but you would be able to see the clog through the clearview water suction area. There are a couple areas to check:
1. The black gasket where clearview water collecting unit and the base's front meet.
2. Check if you're getting sufficient suction: remove the water collecting unit. When you turn on the the unit, you'll feel suction out of a black hose pointing upwards next to the grey dial. If you're not getting sufficient suction you need to check that all the gaskets are seated properly. there are 3 gaskets: (1) an orange one seated between the black hose and the base unit (2 and 3): On the bottom of the unit there is a removeable panel. This panel has a gasket (red) and inside there is a white gasket.

Not sucking up the dirty water or it's sucking up water but it's not filling the recovery tank. I've tried reattaching the lid of the recovery tank and it doesn't look like it is sitting quite right.


This is one possibility. other things to look are the screen filter on the machine. intake hose behind the motor. ensure that accessory hose cover is closed when extracting water from the floor.

Not working properly


Most of Rainbows water tank have a peg or a water fill line and should not be more then indicated. The separator should keep water out of the motor. Other then that you will need to have it checked.

Wet vacuum not sucking up water


Usually when these units don't pick up the water, there is a seal or gasket missing or out of place. But you have a years warranty on this, maybe you should take it to a warrenty shop and have it checked.
