Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
It is still working. Just making this awful loud rattling noise. Sounds like its broken. Thanks!
First make sure there are not any of the rubber cogs missing from the belt, it may be wise to replace the belt anyway because the cogs may be worn. Make sure the brush roll does not have any play in it anywhere and that It fits tightly in the nozzle housing without any play. If there is any play or wiggle that will cause it to move.

I just came from the repair shop. There is a recurring problem with a bearing coming out. Repair guy turned it on & said that loud noise is a symptom of that exact problem. This is a warranty item, as is the belt & on/off switch. Dyson comes with a 5 year warranty, so call their 800 number to get the name & address of an authorized repair shop.

Actually, I'm the poster who said I have the same problem, but it turns out I have the DC07 animal, not the DC14, but perhaps the solution is the same for the DC14 and it doesn't cost anything! I called DYSON and they told me the clutch needed to be reset, so she had me recline the vacuum from its upright position, lay it on it's side, turn the carpet/bare floor dial slowly back and forth between the two settings about 6 times and it apparently reset the clutch and now the cleaner bar spins normally and there's no more loud grinding-type noises. She said if that didn't work, the next step would be to remove the bottom protective panel (secured with the three large plastic screws) and lift the entire cleaner bar (do not remove the belt) out about an inch or so and then reinsert it and reattach the bottom plate. I hope this helps your problem. Good luck.

The All Floors model has a protective belt clutch system and the rattling sound means the clutch has slipped. This would have to be repaired officially by a Dyson repairer.

if your unit has a clutch it maybe that it is in the off position or the motor belt is broken your unit has to belts if its a clutched model
