I have a similar model but I believe the solution would be the same. My dirt cup wasn't coming out after turning the lever so I wedged a butter knife between the clear dirt cup and the grey plate under it and pried the two apart. With the knife pushed in between the two pieces came apart easily. Now the cup slides out with no problem. can not get the dirt - _395.jpg

I can not get the dirt cup out to empty it.


Just slide the dark gray release tab, located just below the cup, all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup toward you.

The belt is probably worn, stretched or broken that is why it is not picking up. Here is a link to the owners manual which has instructions and a link to the belt you need.

The dirt cup clip broke and can't find the part!! Eureka whirlwind lite model#4388


I am assuming that you're looking for the handle at the front of the dirt cup... Part # 28131-288N, it has been replaced by part # 74985 Dirt cup grip assembly. If you call Eureka Customer Support at 1-800-282-2886 they will be able to find you a local dealer.

The dust cup has a small gray tray that appears to be part of the cup, but is not. I made the same mistake also and almost broke the stupid thing trying to get it out. Simply push the lock to the left to unlock. Gently lift the dust cup and not the gray tray and the cup will slide out easily.

Dirt does not go in the dustdup


Take off the front top filter (the clear plastic peice where it says eureka) there should be two filters inside, the bit of foam and the peice it's attached to.

I clean both parts in warm soapy water and let dry, that always fixes the problem for me.

I experienced the same problem of being unable to remove the dust cup. Inspection of the dust cup appeared to indicated two tabs on the bottom of the dust cup preventing it from sliding straight out as illustrated in the instructions. However, after much fiddling, I assumed that the dust cup with the tabs was probably a slightly different part than actually intended for that particular model (2996avr) and so decided to force the cup out, reasoning that if the tabs broke in the process, that was necessary for removal of the cup anyway, and therefore not detrimental.

HOWEVER, upon forcing the cup out, the cup broke away from a plate upon which it is designed to sit. The cup had apparently become stuck to the plate after much use without sufficient care and cleaning. The plate is what the tabs are attached to, and so by breaking the cup free of the plate, the tabs were not an issue, and the cup easily slid in and out of the housing, as intended. It was also observed, upon removal of the cup, that there is a very slight lip on the front of the plate to secure the cup in the proper position; this would likely act as an additional hinderance if the cup was also stuck to the plate by old cemented grime.
