Check the motor brushes, either worn down or dust is keeping one of them from laying on the armature. The other would be a bad motor.

It is supposed to have a round plastic plate and a plastic handle with a nut made in it that tightens against the plate to hold the filter on

Why is suction substantially reduced?


blockage in the suction line
if it is the wet mode there should be a valve (ball) that sucks up to stop water from getting to the motor when the receiver is too full. If you are in wet mode and still have the dust bag in place then the bag will be a solid block of mud and that will be the blockage.

My shop vac is not sucking anything only blowing air out of the open hole where the hose should go if I wanted to blow something. I want it to vacuum not blow out. The filter sleeve and dry cloth are...


I just had the same problem, the vac wouldn't suck in. Turned out to be because the filter was WET. It works great when I take the filter off before sucking up water or liquids! Not sure if this applies in your case, but definitely something to keep in mind. : )

Craftsman wet dry vac no longer sucking enough to use, cleaned the filter, sounds strong but barely works??


Buy a new filter. Make sure hose is cleaned out. Sometimes if the filter is wet and not allowed to dry it will do that. Also make sure hose is on the right outlet

I have a craftsman 2 gal wet/dry vacuume & after using it for a wet pick up without a filter, it blows dust out while vacuuming and is extremely loud. Any suggestions. I took it apart and unclogged...


It sucked up some of the muddy water into the impeller while you was using it. Then it dried out and turned to dust. After you get done using it for wet pickup take a water hose and let a little clean water **** into the impeller, with it off the tub. That will clean it then let it run till dry. That will keep it from getting moldy also. And always put a filter on before using for dry stuff. They make a universal filter that is like a satin bag. That is what I use instead of paper one. Even for water.

Seems to **** up the dirt/dust and simply blow it out instead of capturing it inside


Most of these have an suction hose and a blow port. One blows air, one sucks air. Make sure the suction hose is on the correct port. Also, a dirty air filter will cause the same effects. The filter must be good to prevent the dirt and dust being blow around.

Shop vac sucks water for a few seconds then it spits it back out


Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.

Wet dry vac suction not woking


The wet and dry vaccuums should normally have the dust filter removed when used for wet work. If the filter was left in, it will certainly be clogged and useless. I would suggest trying the unit with no filter, just to check there is good suction. If there is, a replacement filter is required. If there is still little or no suction, then it is possible that there is a blockage within the impeller area somewhere. Wet dust/dirt tends to stick really well to the impeller blades, reducing their efficiency to point of almost no suction. I'm not sure if you can get that far into your unit, if you can, it would be worth using a stiff brush to remove and adhered debris.
