Question about Dirt Devil M087700SV Bagless Upright Vacuum

2 Answers

Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks

When trying to vacuum carpet it seems to spit or blow out instead of sucking in anything. When using the hose separately it has suction on its own but nothing is going into the bagless canister. Have replaced hepa filter, belt and checked hoses for clogs. I'm stumped.
Thanks, C

Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

From the problem you are describing, you are on the right track of locating the issue. It sound as if you hav a blockage in the lower foot of the vacuum.

I dont have a manual for the dirt devil vibe bagless cleaner. It's depositing dirt instead of picking it up. Is there a belt? i don't see one and maybe that's why


Information on your Dirt Devil Vibe Bagless Quick Vac M084500V can be found here:

http://www.dirtdevil.com/products/details.aspx?id=M084500V#parts

A link is available to download the manual as well as for replacement parts.

Yes this model has a belt to run the power brush; the manual has replacement instructions.

If dirst is being left behind it could also be a problem with a blockage, overfilled dirt cotnainer, or problem with the filter.

Fro what you say, the unit is blowing instead of sucking, There must be a pipe that is connected to the wrong outlet. Feel where there is suction instead of pressure, that is where your vacuum pipe must be connected.

Dirt Devil bagless upright. sucks up dirt in the front and spits it out in the back. I have taken it apart to check for visible clogs in hoses and checked belt and rollers all of which are fine. what next?


There seems to be no vacuum drawing the debris away from the brush head. Remove the debris canister to check for air blowing into it. Check particularly, the area where the brush head pivots off of the upright portion. Hope this helps!

Lost suction


TOSS IT and forget it! I have never used a hand vac that worked that was worth the effort of turning it on .... I suggest they are all junk ... I found very few vacuum cleaners ... actually **** especially anything made by dirt devil ... I do have a bagless Bissell 6579-2 that I purchased 4 years ago at walmart for $49 ... It outperforms any vacuum I've ever used, including my worthless Shop-Vac that I paid a lot more for ... this Bissell vac SUCKS ... It could **** the barnacles from a steamship!

You probably have a clog either in the hose , wands, or the dirt inlet by the brush roll.
