Your Dyson has A clutch unit this engages the brush roller when you pull the handle back to vacuum.
Check the clutch control knob which is at the bottom left side of machine looking from the front.
It should rotate to drive position when handle is pulled back.
If it doesnt turn the knob by hand to drive & try the machine.
If you still have no brush rotation after doing all this then UNPLUG machine from mains supply.
Now lay machine on its side & remove the sole plate, This is the cover over the brush roller.
Turn the 3 plastic screws to unlock postition & lift sole plate off.
Now try to yurn brush roller using your hand. It should turn freely if it is difficult to turn look for any foriegn object obstructing the roller.
If no obstruction found then remove the brush roller from the machine & check the bearings in the ends of the brush roller one or both may be siezed up if they are then new brush roller will solve the problem.
If bearings are good then either the clutch is faulty or the second belt which goes clutch to motor has snapped & will need replacing.
It is difficult to fully explain the clutch removing procedure,
But there are service manuals available for these repairs at this site

Hi its Darran at Dyson.
Simply switch the machine off and stand it upright. Press the brush bar on/off switch once and then turn the machine back on.
When you release the machine into the vacuuming position, the brush bar should start to turn again.
If you still having problems, please contact our Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK) or 1866MYDYSON (US).

Try this quick repair and see if this fixes your Dyson in terms of not going in the upright position: This is a frequent problem that we see come in on Dysons. If this doesn't fix it, please feel free to just use the clarification request and let me know this didn't fix it. The suction problem is happening because when the machine is put in the upright position it diverts the suction from the floor to the hose automatically, and it's probably stuck in between the lower part and the hose part.
Turn power off and unplug the machine.
Tilt the machine backward to a 45° angle.
In terms of the machine not picking up, this could be caused by a few things.
The first thing you should check is the filter. The DC14 has a motor filter that is recommended to be washed every 90 days. Here's how to access this filter:
*The post-motor filter located under the clear bin should last the lifetime of the machine and does not need to be washed.
There are two different types of filters that were used on the Dyson DC14, and One part filter, and a two part filter. Here's instructions on how to clean both of them:
ONE PART FILTER:
The filter should be washed at least once every 6 months.
Also, since you have removed the bottom plate, a common problem on the Dyson's is when this plate is reinstalled. It is very easy to put the plate on incorrectly, which prevents the brushes from hitting the carpeting. This can seriously decrease the pick up on carpets. Check the bottom plate to make sure that it was put back on properly. Here's pictures of both the correct, and incorrect way to reinstall the bottom plate:
Here's a picture of the WRONG way to install the bottom plate. Notice the gap in between the two housings:
Here's another picture, that is the RIGHT way to install the soleplate:
I would say probably 6 times out of 10 this is the problem with the customers machine. If you checked the soleplate and it is installed correctly, move on to the second possible problem.
I hope that this was helpful to you. Please feel free to use the Clarification Request form here on Fixya if you have any questions.

Does the whining noise come from the motor or the brush area?
If it's from the brush area, it's probably the belt. Check to be sure the belt is not worn. Sometimes belts will glass up and slip. Also, check to see if it is still completely on as it should be. You may need to replace the belt.
I woHope this helps, if it does, please place a vote for me. Thanks,
