Question about Vacuums
The belt is OK, but not being driven.
If your unindentified vacuum cleaner is an upright, the belt may be stretched and unable to rotate the roller brush. The roller brush ends could be clogged with debris, preventing it from rotating freely. The solution is to disconnect your vacuum cleaner from the power and turn it upside down for inspection. It may be necessary to remove the roller brush and remove the end caps to clean inside. Replace any worn parts

Testimonial: "Thank you. The vacuum cleaner is not unidentified: it is a Panasonic MC-LM592 (which is an upright model "Eco-Max"). The pulley which drives the belt will not rotate."

If the DC18 has a proteted belt then it will have to be replaced by a Dyson engineer or repairer. If the cleaner has a removable sole plate where the beater bar is then remove it and replace the belt - sounds like the belt has snapped and needs to be replaced. if your DC18 is still relatively new it should still be under guarantee.
