Absolutely all the air in a vacuum would pass through the filter and if its clogged badly you could loose all your suction and if the belt is more than a year old then replace it even if it isnt broken ( they stretch out over time )

No suction after assembly


Sounds like you have a tube misaligned. Take the tubes that lead to the filter off and put back on. Most likely the solution

Nothing going into dirt canister


Is there suction at the hose? If not it is either blocked or the suction fan is broken. If there is, then there is a blockage in the pickup section, something is lodged across the channel after the brushes and before the place where the hose plugs in.

I think there is a safety switch to prevent it from running with the canister out so hard to check for suction at the top of the motor/suction fan. Make sure nothing is over that part under the canister too! If you can figure out how to bypass the safety switch (if there is one), you should have good suction where the canister sets on top of the motor base.

No suction. dirt goes into the filter instead of the canister


Check the motor and clean it properly. A very dirt motor will cause no suction or weak suction.
Be sure the motor is running on proper speed, a weak motor will cause a weak suction.
Thanks for asking.

Poor suction-need to know how to remove & clean filter under canister of Hoover Wind Tunnel Mach 4.7 Twin Chamber System.


I assume this is a Hoover Bagless, if poor suction, the hose or dirt inlet by the brush roll may have a clog. The filter inside the dirt container may need replacement. Some had a screw to take out to remove the cover for the filter, the one under where hte dirt container sits. Alos the belt may be stretch and won't turn the brush roll under load. Having the model number would help.

Dirt is not going into canister


I have been dealing with this exact same problem for a week and has been driving me crazy! I have done everything you just did and nothing worked. I just took the filter out that is underneath the canister and when I did it was clogged up real bad with tissue, styrofoam and hair. I reached in there and pulled as much out as I could then got needle nose pliers to reach in there to pull out the rest. Remember, it's behind the filter, not the filter itself. My vacuum works great now!!!

Hi, my sanyo pulse 1500 bagless vacuum has very little suction.


If the vacuum will run without the hose attached, does the suction seem ok at the opening where the hose goes into? If so, then you have a clog in the hose or down below where the dirt is first sucked up. If suction is poor at the vacuum, then check the filters, they go bad after awhile.
