Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
We recently replaced the belt and filter on our DC17 and now it seems impossible to push it across the floor. I am wondering if I put the bottom plate/part on wrong? It doesnt glide across my wood floors like it use to.....it seems to make a scrapping sound now.....is it suppose to adjust? I have taken it off and replaced it 4 or 5 times to no relief.... Is it because we took it apart and cleaned everything and now it is just so strong? I liked it better when it was clogged and moved....I have to use both ams to push it across my area rugs...HELP!!!!!!
Also be sure the 2 springs are still underneath. I think those help level out the vacuum on various surfaces.

Yes, it certainly sounds as though you haven't re-fitted the sole-plate correctly. On most models, the sole-plate has three tabs at the front, and these locate in slots in the bumper bar at the front of the body. These tabs must be in the slots before you tighten the three locking screws. You need to hold the rear of the sole-plate up while pushing the tabs in to the slots, then press down on the rear and tighten the screws. Just the fact that you cleaned the machine will not be the cause of the problem.
