Make terrible noise when you click the lever to lover the back to use

If you were to use the vacuum fully upright, it is fine. When you click the lever to lower the back so that you can push/pull it, it makes horrible loud noise.

That means that your brush is locking up. Lay the vacuum on its front and tilt the foot back. Remove the sole plate and make sure nothing is blocking brush from spinning. Then make sure that the end caps of the brush are facing up or toward the back of the unit which ever way you look at it. If thats all fine there is something that is jamming your clutch.This is harder to remove and will probably need to be replaced. They are not that expensive as you can probably get it for 60 bucks.

Why won't my dyson d28 vacuum? I step on the foot and it won't tilt?

The manual is here, amongst other places:
Dyson DC28 Animal User Guide Around Page 4, as labeled in the manual, it shows the operator stepping a foot onto the lower unit and pulling the handle back. It's a common instruction for every Dyson upright I've looked at a manual for. Pull a little harder and it should tilt. Try moving it through the full range of motion a few times, and also make sure the lower click connector for the accessory hose if firmly seated at the bottom rear of the unit.

Good Luck!

How can i get my upright kenmore vacuum cleaner to move to the vacuum position?

Don't know your brand vacuum but if I understand you correctly the solution should be pretty straight forward unless the lowering lever is broken somehow. Usually there is a foot lever on the left, or sometimes the right, toward the rear part of the base to push with your foot. Step on it while at the same time push it slightly forward first - just a quick 1" forward motion, then pull it toward you. That SHOULD disengage the handle to be able to vacuum freely.

Has no power

Does the switch feel like it "clicks" when you turn it on? might be a bad switch. If the motor went bad then it's lights out for that vac.

It isn't 'sucking up' the water when I pull the vacuum back towards me.

The lower (recovery) tank has an adjustable panel for attaching the hose accessory. If it is not in the right position you will lose your ability to vacuum up the water. When it is installed toward the front of the machine at all it will not vacuum water. Make sure that the panel is fully installed in the position that is closest to the back of the panel slot (toward where you stand to use the SteamVac).

A high pitch wine may be the sign of a bad bearing. Try to narrow down exactly where the noise is coming from. You may have to remove the brushroll and turn it on without it to see if it could be coming from there.
