Question about Kirby G5 Bagged Upright Vacuum
This link has photos for a step-by-step install of the shampooer.
Note: I found the most difficult part was ensuring that the belt was connected correctly, so spend a couple extra minutes in the beginning and you won't need to sit in soggy carpet working with it.

Make sure the sponge and the valve under the sponge (water tank) is clean.
Make sure you follow the instructions (f you do not have the manual you can find one HERE)
See if the straw inside the water tank is not clogged (happens when you use toilet tissue or some other paper to dry inside of the tank after you shampoo)
Noise - if it is noisy al the time - it may need new shampooer brush roll. Also check the tray - bar brush roll bearings overheat and melt the tray... Never submerse brush roll in water when cleaning it. Clean it simply by lifting the shampooer nozzle and letting it spin for 10-20 seconds. If you have tu put it under running water - put it back in the shampooer nozzle (with tray and shield) put on Kirby and turn it on for 20 seconds or so. If it stays soaken wet - moisture damages barings.

if you unscrew a bit on the base that allows you to take off the brush, you will see a black plastic strip with very small holes in it. These are where your shampoo comes out of. Take a needle and re-pierce these holes and it should work again. I have just sorted mine out. good luck .

The bag assembly must be removed to attach the tank. Turn the fiberglass bag housing counterclockwise to remove, and replace it with the tank.
