Remove the cleaner and then pull off the battery tab. Replace the battery and put in the cleaner and test.

I can't find the battery compartment on my Swiffer Wet Jet. It doesn't look at all like the directions.

Look in the closet or wherever you keep your swifter. The battery compartment may have fallen off. On the swifter I had, you couldn't tell anything was missing.

The batteries are located on the front down toward the mop. There is a button, press the button and it will open.


Requires 4 double A batteries. I could not find any place that told me where the compartment is. Certainly not in the closet. Now my Swiffer Wet Jet is ready to go.

How do I change the batteries on the Swiffer Wet Jet?

Stop! Your battery compartment has probably fallen off! Check the bottom of your closet first, before trying to pry out a battery that is not there. Another web site gave me the heads up on this, and sure enough after trying to pry the battery compartment off, I realized it was sitting in the bottom of the closet! A very common problem!

The Swiffer Wet Jet? It's in the handle behind where the solution goes.


You have to turn it upside down and get the solution container off first, then you should see the compartment

Can anyone tell me how to change the batteries on the old style Swiffer WetJet? It is green, but not with the big bottle holder attached. You can push the purple button to release the bottle, but the green "switch" underneath that does not move. :-/

How do I open the battery compartment on a Swiffer Wet Jet?

How To Open The Wet Jet Battery Compartment


Right below the gray thumb size thingy is a lever, just push down on it and it flips open. Might take a little pressure. Don't give up. (07/12/2007)

How To Open The Wet Jet Battery Compartment

The battery compartment is faulty and very frustrating. I took someone's advice and pushed on the compartment below the gray thumb thingy and it broke. Surely with such a neat idea they could come up with a battery compartment that is not designed faulty. I don't think I will buy another. (06/19/2008)

How To Open The Wet Jet Battery Compartment

I read the other complaints about the compartment and proceeded to destroy mine, too, trying to open what I thought was the battery compartment. I unscrewed everything, and finally ended up using a BIG screwdriver to pry the thing apart into many little pieces. I was amazed to find no batteries anywhere. On the way down to the garage to throw the darn thing out, I saw 4 batteries and a plastic case laying on the ground. It's so easy to remove that it removed itself! The trick to it? There is a little green tab. You might want to insert a flat screwdriver into the slot above to push down gently. (12/22/2008)

How To Open The Wet Jet Battery Compartment

It is simple when you know what to push. It is just under the bottle where the letters CE are, there is a green tab, push it down and the cover comes out with four batteries in it ,you will need a screwdriver to wedge the batteries out. Good Luck. It would be nice if they labeled it properly. (02/14/2009)
