My Dyson animal vacumn refuses to pick anything up, even a tiny piece of lint?????? It was working fine for awhile. I paid $500.00 for this cleaner at Target because I have 4 inside cats.

    ours is the yellow one, and it won't even pick up a piece of thread from the carpet... a waste of money

Why won't my Dyson DC44 rechargeable vacuum brush attachment not work or pick up anything?

Hi Kim, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC44's motorised cleaner head doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be, it sounds as if there is a blockage somewhere. To check for this, please follow the steps shown in our Support guide:

The video I've attached should also help you check for and remove any threads, hair or debris caught around the brush bar.

If you'd like further help after you've given this a try, please get in touch with us directly so our experts can talk you through some additional troubleshooting checks. You can reach the Dyson customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Can't get dyson to release

There is a piece that is part of the hose in the back that is before it gets to the "tube". If you can, take a penny, turn the tab, and remove this piece. You will notice there is a piece that attaches to the front of vaccumn is now exposed. there is a small tab on the left that needs to be outside of the casing. if it is even with or inside, the vacumn won't recline.

Beater bar not working

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

If the brush control has been switched off the brush bar won't go round when the vacuum cleaner is lowered into the vacuuming position. If this is in the correct position, we would recommend checking the brush bar and cleaner head for blockages as this can prevent the brush bar turning.

If none of the above resolves the problem, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Many thanks

Dyson DC14 doesn't pick up much of anything.

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

I am surprised to hear you are having difficulties with your Dyson.

If you have already completed the full blockage procedure and washed the pre filter, it may be worthing checking the internal hose on the base of the machine.

Lie the machine on its side and you should see a small corrigated pipe. Twist this a quarter turn clockwise and then try the machine again. You may find that this hose twisted pulling the cleaner head up very slightly preventing it from contacting with your surfaces correctly.

If this still does not solve the issue, your machine is still covered by warranty so call our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON so we can help you further.

Kind regards

No suction from the bottom

Check for a clogged airway between the bottom shoe and the hose inlet. The shoe is the area around the brush when looking at the bottom of the floor unit.
