Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Yes, you certainly can take off the outer bag of your Oreck and wash it in the washing machine. You DO NOT however want to put the bag through the dryer!!!!! Just hang the bag outside, and let it air dry. It is important to make sure that the bag is 100% completely dry before you use the machine again. If the bag is wet, it will cause dirt to turn to mud in the bag, and probably cause a foul odor when you use the bag.

There are 2 different types of bag systems with Oreck vacuums. The one pictured below is the older style that uses a metal clamp to hold the bag in place. The newer docking system, will be a white plastic clamp that holds the outer bag in place. They both will be removed the same way however. Simply take a screwdriver and pry off the clamp;

Once you have removed this clamp, simply pull the outer bag off. Once it has been washed, and the bag is 100% completely dry, put the outer bag back over the bag housing as far as it will go. When you put the clamp back on, it is imperative that the clamp go behind the plastic ridges, to ensure that it is tightly fastened. If the clamp is not put on correctly, this will cause the inner paper bag to fall off during vacuuming. Make sure that the clamp is in the right position when putting the bag back;

SOURCE: My Oreck XL has quit sucking. The brush turns but

Same problem here with XL9100. Bag would not expand implying no suction. Motor ran and brushes turned. Easy disassembly using common tools found that a plastic bag had been sucked up and caused a blockage prior to the impeller. Cleaned up, reassembled, and everything worked fine after that.

Plastic blue holder inside bag came off,, how do you reattached so I can but the filter bag on


In addition I would add, that the bag must be fully installed on the upper handle mount before attempting to reinstall the clip. I find that the clip should be installed, then squeezed to install the bag holder, being aware of the proper orientation of this part.

Put smaller part of bag docking system on first. Seperate it from the other. It has to be pushed on past plastic lip around hole. It should feel very tight. Then attach larger part of bag dock onto the smaller one.

Blue plastic bag holder on oreck upright detached - how to put it back in?


Amy, not sure from your description whether the outer part is what came off or the smaller, inner part came off. If it is the outer part, all you need to do is squeeze the two prongs of the inner part of the bag holder together and slip the two pegs into the holes on the outer part of the holder. If the inner part came off then you have to spread it, so that it will go over the opening on the handle, and then follow the directions I gave to install the outer part. Hope this helps.

The bags keep falling off


The nozzle pictured upon which the bag holder mechanism broke on my machine. Took it to Oreck dealership twice and he kept replacing the bag holder, but mostly trying to sell me a new vac.

Problem was, the bag holder mechanism itself was no longer attaching to the exhaust port because a major portion of the attachment device simply went missing. Notice that in the pics I post there is obviously something missing. A product failure. We don't abuse our stuff.


Solution? I drilled two small holes on either side of the bag holder mechanism and then fed a very small zip tip around the mechanism and around the plastic cloth bag holder support so it can no longer disconnect. Key to this is to feed the zip tie from behind the plastic cloth bag holder support so that the fat part of the zip tie does not interfere with the connection of the bag support to the bag holder.


Here's a pic of what I did.

Oreck xl 9100 bag wont stay on using type cc replaced inside bag hanger


What year model?

Pre-late 1990s, bag on upright just fit over the adapter in the tube.

Lat 1990s, went to a version that had a sliding piece of paper to cloe off the bag & prevent spillage, and required a hinged plastic piece for chipboard piece on bag to slide into.

Must have right bag for the unit, otherwise it will not stay on, will leak.
