The 121 should only have the main filter ring taken out before the reservoir tank is put in which easily just falls into the main dust tank area. Make sure though that the bin's square edge is at the front where it rests at the front of the Vax where the hose comes out. Then unhook the pump to lay it in the water tank and the motor should be able to jam ontop clipping both sides down to lock. Perhaps you are putting the reservoir bucket in the wrong way.
