I need to know how to get in to replace the belt...


The belt replacement can be done in just a few easy steps.
You're going to want to turn the vacuum on it's side to access the base of the unit. Unscrew the bottom of the vacuum and remove the brushroll. Make sure to remove any string or clumps of dirt that could have caused your old belt to break. Stretch the belt with the brushroll until it can be put into place. Secure the bottomplate back into place. That should do it!

The below site contains a downloadable manual for the Whirlwind Plus, which should be similar to yours. The information you need is on page 4.

I can not get the dirt cup out to empty it.


Just slide the dark gray release tab, located just below the cup, all the way to open position, and then pull the Easy Empty Cup toward you.

Dirt is being trapped in the filter area instead of canister.


The canister has a filter as well. It needs to be replaced or cleaned. A damaged canister filter will feed dirt into the HEPA filter. (and the motor)
An improperly installed filter can allow dirt to bypass the canister filter and collect in the HEPA filter.
I suggest a new canister filter and then clean it carefully every week.
Here is a list of the filters for your vacuum.

Dirt does not collect in container....collects in filter area


Small Filter at bottom of cannister may be clogged. Not letting enough suction draw dirt down.

No dirt is getting to the plastic container.....


if the filters are clean I doubt it! Under the foot of the hoover there should be a little black cover/flap that covers the intake part of the hose, try lifting this flap forward and see if there is any blockage at this end.

Belt broke


The belt number is 60957, There should be some screws that you remove from the bottom and the whole bottom nozzle will come apart, then you can change the belt.
