Bag Won't Trap Leaves

When my dolphin picks up leaves, they do not go into the bag, instead they up into the motor and you can see them sticking out of the top of the unit. I've taken it back to Leslie's multiple times and they can't fix it. Help!

Snug Fit
by: ADMIN

If the bag is not snug on the bottom plate then the pump will pull it up and off so debris will escape.

Leaves not going in bag
by: DD

Like the other person said, my dolphin deluxe 4 is taking leaves in the motor area and plugging up the impeller. The bag is on correct and I just had new wheels put on. The band on the bag broke off a while back. Really wired. The leaves aren't going in the bag.

Bag install
by: ADMIN

Be certain the bag is oriented correctly or it will ride up the wire retainer leaving a gap. The bag only goes on one way.

Torn Bag
by: ADMIN

You may have a small hole in the bag or the bag is loose on the bag-mount. OR the bag is not on correctly. The bag only goes on one way. If it is on wrong then it won't go around the motors without it riding up the wire.
