    were there any suds or was it mostly water?



    if there were little to no suds present i would check the mesh screen that is connected to the tank. It can be dislodged by the hose at times. The mesh screen is a small (about an inch in diameter) round piece of plastic with a mesh screen in the center. It is what produces the suds on the kirby shampooer.



    let me know if this solves your problem or if its something else

Don't know how to use carpet shampooer


You should have the new aquamate, it has a blue top to fill with the water and water/soap solution that pops down into place. You will need to use your power nozzle hose and tube, connect it to your shampooer (make sure to connect the power connection just like the power nozzle). Fill your water up, large compartment is for cold water only and the smaller compartment is for one cap full of soap then the rest filled with cold water. Start with just a splash of water or an empty basin in the rainbow. The trigger will control your water spray and the brush underneath. There are two levers on the back of the shampooer marked with a shower head and a bar of soap. Use the soap with the shower head and the soap on and the water only with just the shower head on. You will want to also go over the area shampooed with both off to **** up the remaining water. Make sure to clean your floor thoroughly before shampooing.

My kirby vac when using the shampooer doesn't distribute the solution


Make sure that the small round suds screen is in place on the shampoo tank where the hose connects to the tank.

I have a Kirby vacuum with the shampooing attachment. The shampoo/liquid comes out of the shampooer in a drizzle of liquid. There is no foam.


You need to check that the little round screen is in the hole where the hose attaches to the shampoo tank. My guess is that the little round screen is wedged sideways in the end of the hose.

Shampoo not spreading evenly


Either you are not lowering the shampooer tray all the way down or maybe you lost the vinyl lip that is mounted on the front of the tray. Detailed shampoo instructions and pictures HERE.

Good Luck

make sure the brushes on the shampooer head are spinning and that you have the shampooer head lowered all the way down to its lowest setting. Also...shampoo at a slower pace than you would move when vacuuming...when both putting down the suds on heavily soiled areas and scooping them up. The more oils in the carpet, the less suds you'll see when the shampooer is working properly. one more thing that may be mentioned in the guide is the little round sud screen that attaches to one end of the shampooer hose...make sure that little mesh screen is there and seated properly. It is what produces the suds from the shampoo solution.

Kirby Vacuum Shampoo Attachment


If your trying to shampoo your carpets but the water flow is to weak and it trickles through the spout to the carpet leaving small puddles

This problem often occurs when the foam filter is not replaced after rinsing or ends up in the shampoo hose at an angle preventing foaming. If you take the small shampoo hose of the shampoo tank the filter should be on the tank, if not, it may have come off and be in the hose. If it’s not there locate it, likely in the area where you last cleaned the shampooer or in the box, and put it back on the tank. While this should be cleaned after each use, care should be taken to replace it and not lose it.

The problem may also occur if you don’t actually add the Kirby Dry Foam Shampoo to the water or if you use some thin else.

Take care to also clean and replace the air filter after rinsing. It is located under the shampoo tank where the tank fits onto the vacuum.

Vacuum brush roller with belt attached is off


It is meant to come apart for cleaning it up afterwards. Slip the belt over the roller. One triangular end of the roller is bigger than the other, so keep this in mind when sliding it into the cleaning head. Turn the knob to pick up the belt, just like on the vacuum's regular nozzle. Mount the cleaning head, then turn the knob to set the belt onto the motor spindle.
