Re: Emptying the bag
Changing the paper bag...Just rotate the cardboard and pull until it comes off of the fill tube. Note the tabs on the fill tube top and the notches in the cut out circle in the cardboard on the paper bag when reassembling. Try this link for free shampooer directions.....manuals also available.

Hi! Below are step-by-step instructions on how to change the bag on your vacuum. This vacuum takes a Dirt Devil Type D replacement bag. I have included a link to the instruction manual, as well as a link where you may go to purchase replacement bags for your vacuum.
1. To Remove: squeeze front panel release lever and pull towards you. 2. Grasp cardboard collar of paper bag with both hands and pull past raised locking tabs on the dirt tube. Dispose of old paper bag. 3. Important: Extend bag away from hole before installing. Press in opening to clear paper away from hole. 4. To Install: Push cardboard collar past raised locking tabs on the dirt tube with both hands. Be sure paper bag is fully extended and tucked in at the top and bottom. 5. Replace front panel by putting the two bottom tabs in the slots on the vacuum. Push front panel so release lever attaches.
You can pull on the tab to remove the bag, but probably a better way is to gently pull on the rubber ring that attaches the bag to the back of the vacuum body. If you don't yank and ****, it should come off without spilling the dirt. There may also be a paper bag actually catching the dirt inside the cloth bag. If there isn't, I recommend you get a package of those. They come in packs of three, and they're disposable -- instead of emptying them, you toss them and install a new paper bag.
There is no drive belt on a progressive drive vacuum. It is direct drive meaning it is attached via the motor. No vacuum means no air flow somewhere in the unit. Torn bag,Wrong bag, pluged filter under bag.Make sure the opening in the bag is the correct size,too big and it will not seal. Make sure when you close the housing it seals also. No housing seal no vacuum. Kenmore vacuums tend to be plastic housings. Cracks are comon in the wheel housing area. Check there first. Plastic expoxy will work with this fix if so needed.
It is not recommended to change that bag. The best thing to do would be to borrow a shop vac from someone and vacuum it off really good. The bags sell for about $60.00 and they are a big pain to change out. The other thing you can do to help the odor is look into exhausting the unit outside. All manufacturers recommend it.
Because of the traditional means of suction, air watts can only be justified in vacuums like Dyson that have 100% suction all the time. Therefore even the most expensive bagged upright (or bagless that doesn't have Dyson technology) will lose suction the moment a new bag is put in. Don't believe that air watts are true unless you have a Dyson.
