Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The filter was recently cleaned and also the rotating brush, but since then it hasn't been cleaning as well. I turn it on, for a few seconds it will work, then a loud suction noise coming from on top of where the filter is keeps happening. I've turned it on and off, opened the filter and reclosed it, but it's still happening.
Vacuum Cleaners require AIr-Flow. Your machine is not getting any air-flow. The noise you hear is a valve opening up to prevent your machine from overheating and burning out the motor.
You probably have an obstruction somewhere in the machine. Dysons are kind of known for that in the vacuum cleaner world.
Check all air channels and clean them out. If that fixes the problem you still might have issues that caused it to clog up.
I posted the part second because it takes 24 hours to complete it.
Be sure you wash your Washable Pre-filter. It needs to dry for 24 hours. Never put it back in the machine wet.
Once it is completely dry reinstall the pre-filter and your machine should be back to normal operating functions.
Let me know f this helps.

Try these tests & tell me the results.
Remove the hose & wand completely from the machine it unclips at the bottom of the back.
Leave handle in full upright position & switch on do you still get the sound of something blocked ?
If yes remove the (U) shaped inspection port again at bottom back of machine now repeat last test what happens ?
Please reply with your answers.

SOURCE: Hair on top of washable filter
your animals are shedding.if you have pets then you will have to clean the filters more often depending on how much their shedding.its probably a good idea to clean the filters after each use if your getting that much hair.you might want to turn the vacuum over and clean the brush roller and the underside because the static electricity from the hair will cause it to cling to the under carriage

One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. Check that all the seals are undamaged and in place, especially the big black ring at the bottom of the yellow bit inside the clear bin. Also check that the bin base closes tight after you've emptied it.
If this doesn't help, please post a response and I'll try again. If it does help, please remember to rate me!

You need to clean your roller and replace the clutch assembly that drives the belts. poorly designed vacuum with many flaws.

Something could be jammed, or not rotating freely, maybe an improper alignment with the brushes, or a blocakage within them. Try to re adjust the brushes :)
