Take of the housing ,turn it over and you will see the under side of the auto mix dial , Then turn the auto mix dial to rinse only;
On the top of the piston you will see a small slot , this fits into
the out side spiral on the auto mix knob with the dial set to rinse only the top part of the spiail sould point to the courner
Tilt the piston slightly,then hook it on the point of the auto mix knob , when you turn the auto mix dial to heavy traffic the piston should slide down the outer spiral of the auto mix-dial ,
Put the housing back on with the auto mix dial set to heavy traffic, but make sure no tubes are trapped or this will stop the flow of water,
i hope you can under stand what i have wrote ,Goodluck

Turn the knob to the water only, put the piston on the bottom of the knob then turn it slightly so it doesn't fall off, Start to put the cover on, when it is straight, turn the knob to the water only selection and push the top all the way down. The piston should have gone into the hole and the knob should turn easily.

SOURCE: replacing Smart Mix knob
The knob itself will only go in one way, What I was talking about is when you put the top cover back on, the knob should be in the water only position. This way the piston (on the bottom of the knob) will go into the slot correctly.

If your brushbar wont turn and the belt is definatley fitted correctly then there is a problem with the brushbar itself.
If the brushbar is old then they can be affected internally by clogging up.
Assuming you have the "Clutch" version of Dyson. This is one that has a spiral brushbar.
There are 2 types of brushbar, 1 for the Clutch Version and 1 for the Non Clutch version.
Either way you will need to replace the brushbar. Please watch the video....
