I had the same problem!
There is a video on YouTube that shows how to open it.

The video is no longer active, but I figured it out anyway.

It is simply a hard pull out from the top of the silver container. The top will swing out and then you can take it off. I also pushed down a little bit, but I believe the main part to simply pull out. A fairly strong plastic tab holds it in place, so it took some force, but did not break anything.

Release button to empty cylinder wont work cant get it off manually


Hello, the canister empty function works by pulling a long plastic rod that moves the catch on the bottom access door. It sounds like either the puller is stuck or that the rod may be broken. If the puller does move upward when pulled, then the later in most likely. You can check by removing the Torque screws and pulling the top section off very gently, because the canister really needs to be opened and removed first, do this outside to avoid a dirt spill in the house, either way I would look for a used canister from another machine, which is really a much cheaper and less dirty option.

My Electrolux Rapido wet&dry won't start. The battery is empty and the blue light flashes when I plug in the charger.


this sounds totally silly but is the power button on the vacuum actually off? Had the same problem, where the battery was completely empty i didn't know my son had switched the vacuum on put it on charge and the light was flashing. I took it off the charging stand pressed the power button then put it back....now charging perfectly. Anyone who doesnt have this appliance will think you sound stupid but its just a clicky button so visually the button looks the same on or off.

Hi Pauline,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty fitting your new cyclone pack. If it won't empty when you pull the trigger, you may want to check you have the clear bin and cyclone pack aligned and fitted together correctly.

You might want to give our Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US), as one of our advisors will be happy to help you check everything is correct with your machine.

Water spray not functioning for hose or carpet. I purchased this about 3 weeks a go. The spray work for about 20 mins then stopped. Is there are reset? I have tried turing off and on etc. Wendy...


Wendy,
I have the same model Bissell as you and this is going to sound silly....
The spray tank runs out of solution allot faster than you would expect it to. Remove the tank, dump out all the used stuff, and refill your solution tank.
You never know that it is empty until you dump out the waste tank! 20 minutes sounds about right for a full solution tank to run dry.
Good Luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

Bissell model 7901-1 won't dispense The pump turns, belt looks good Fluid from the reservoir is seen with a couple of bubbles in the inlet tube. It sloshes back and forth but doesn't get going


It's one of two things:

1. The Bladder may be empty. Remember, the bladder is inside the reservoir, so the bladder may look full, but in fact could be empty.

2.Or the lent screen may be clogged.

I can not get the dirt cup out to empty it.


Just slide the dark gray release tab, located just below the cup, all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup toward you.

Fitting internal bin catch on dco7


Yea I can definitely help you. On the tope of the cyclone there are three screws that will allow you to take off the top off the cyclone. You should see a long black rod going down the middle of the cylcone. It is difficult and you may have to detach it from the top i cant remember as usually i just replace the whole thing and only done that 3 times. You take a flash light and you can see where the rod goes in and just push it down and it should pop open. ill check back on monday to see if you replied or need more help.
