I fixed mine by taking the spongey filter out and washing it through. Then, important step, dry it with a hairdryer and test the direction of air flow by putting the dryer up close to it and feeling if it comes out the bottom. For me, only one way worked, and I put it back that way into the head, and hey presto, full suction back again! Thank goodness.

My vax rapid carpet cleaner no suction filter is fine


If the vacuum is still functioning, the hose is most likely clogged. Disassemble the vax and unclog. Make sure you drain before disassembling. If possible do this outside.

My Vax rapide is not sucking up water?


I had the same problem. Then I took off the brushbar (it's underneath at the front). It just pops off. Then it worked fine. I guess you only need it for long carpets.

Vax rapide not realising water out


I have just managed to fix the problem i had with my vax rapide not releasing water. I also tried tilting it and that did not work. I unscrewed the brush from the base of the carpet washer and there is a black plastic strip with holes in where the water comes out of and onto the carpet. I used a needle to unblock these tiny holes which had become blocked after the last use. I now have it working again.
