No suction. Picked up dog hair but went into extension hose socket and not into cannister. Is now blowing instead of sucking. This is a Eureka whirlwind lite. Thank you Jim

Hoover dm6200 blowing air


check your suction hose again, follow it to where it goes into the body of the machine. I assume this will be near where the bagless cannister is. Remove the bagless cannister and look up inside to where the attachment hose should come into the cannister. I believe you are still blocked up there. using a butter knife or something along those lines should free up the blockage.
Also, if that is all clear, try re-adjusting the dirt cannister as it may not be on properly to create your suction flow through the hose.
Good luck and let me know if I can help further.

Eureka Model Whirlwind litespeed. The rotart brush does not turn or rotate. Should it turn or rotate in order to give better suction?


Hello fnintel, yes, if you are using the upright vacuum it should spin, ( the belt likely slipped off, or the brush is clogged with hair and the likes.)
However, if you are using the hose on the vacuum like a shop vac, some models bypass the rotary brush.
Good luck!

No suction


there is a clog somewhere :) take the canister off and check the opening and the hose. sometimes items get caught in the top of the canister.. this greatly reduces the whirlwind effect..

My Eureka Whirlwind Plus is not sucking up


Hi,
It sounds like you just have a clog going on... maybe a sock or something. You might have to do a little disassembly of the roller to get to it.
Hope this hlelps... Good luck

My Eureka Lite speed whirlwind has a bad odor when it runs.


It is either the filter or on the roller or belt.

Vacuum Cleaner sucking dirt out of the cannister instead of into it.


You didn't give you model number, but check by the brush roll to see if the inlet there is clogged, hose still has a clog, filters are bad and need replacing. Does the brush roll turn, belts stretch after short usuage and will not drive the brush roll under load, may need to replace the belt.
