Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
All hoses seem to be clean
I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC17. If debris seems to be coming back out of the cleaner head, there may be a blockage in the machine. To locate and remove any blockages, please follow the steps shown in our online support guide:
You may also want to give the filter a wash - in normal use this should be done at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.
This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance or advice, please call us on 1-866-693-9766 - or if you email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com, someone will be in touch as soon as possible to provide assistance.

Well... not sure about this, but worth a shot. I did get one of these in for repair a while back, with exactly the same problem. The owner hadn't realized that there's an on/off switch for the brush motor. It's located on the front of the handle. Not sure, but it may be that this switch cuts off automatically if the motor gets overloaded, and needs to be reset manually. Try it!

I just came from the repair shop. There is a recurring problem with a bearing coming out. Repair guy turned it on & said that loud noise is a symptom of that exact problem. This is a warranty item, as is the belt & on/off switch. Dyson comes with a 5 year warranty, so call their 800 number to get the name & address of an authorized repair shop.

My Dyson DC14 had no suction...see if this works...turn the Dyson upside down...there is a length of hose that connects the bottom of the vacuum to the top, careful remove one end of the hose and check for debris...mine was clogged. Removed the clog and voila...it works. Thanks for the above info on checking the hose for cracks.
