Check the throat of the vacuum head where the air is sucked to the filter box. Check that it is not clogged.

No suction

If you have a bag-type vacuum with a clean bag, check the nozzle, hoses and roller to make sure they're not blocked. (If you have a bagless, make sure the canister is empty.) Also look for other air filters built into the vacuum. In addition to the bag, my vacuum has 2 filters. If a filter gets clogged, suction will go down and the motor will over-heat.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Air filter:
If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up dirt and has no suction the air filter might be clogged. Remove the filter and either clean or replace it as needed.
Exhaust Filter If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the exhaust filter might be clogged. Remove and clean the filter, replace it if its torn or damaged.

Vacuum Hose If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum hose might be clogged. Remove the hose from the vacuum cleaner, stretch it out straight, shine a bright flashlight in one end and try to see light through it. If no light can be seen, use something to run through the hose and free up the obstruction.
Vacuum Bag If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the vacuum bag might be full. Clean or replace the bag as recommended by the manufacturer.

Dust Cup AssemblyIf the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and has no suction the dust cup assembly might not be installed tightly, or it might be cracked or broken. The dust cup must seal tightly in order to produce the right amount of suction. If it is cracked or broken, replace it. Most glues and adhesives will not successfully seal the crack.
Blower Wheel If the vacuum cleaner won't pick up and there is no suction, the blower wheel might be jammed or broken. Check the blower wheel to be certain it turns freely. If it doesn't, check to see if there is anything rubbing against it. If not, but it's hard to turn, the motor is most likely the problem.

I have a Kenmore Grab n Go Bagless and it won't pick anything up. I've cleaned the filter and the hose and the roller.

I assume you have no suction?

Could be either a seal is missing or there is either broken impellers on moter or debris caught in impellers or screen protecting impellers. Check to see if you feel air bblowing out or strange noises.
