There's a leak somewhere! This also happened to me. Take both tanks off and clean them thoroughly. The rubber seal on the bottom of the water receptacle tank has to be seated firmly and the tank locked down with the little arms (one on each side). Pet hair clogs this model and has to be removed after each use. Look for debris, etc that may be preventing the tank from sealing properly.

The cleaner is not sucking up the water from the carpet


There should be a filter. If it's clogged or old, water will not flow through it properly. Meaning... Your machine will not suck the water up, once you've made a big mess on your carpet.
Good luck and Merry Christmas, Bill

Sucking and blowing sound went switched on


Hi Steve, it's Jack at Dyson.

From what you've described, it sounds as if the suction relief valve may be activating. This opens to let more airflow into the motor if the machine is used when blocked, or if the washable filters are very overdue for a clean.

In normal use, both filters should be washed using cold water without detergent, at least once a month. Allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them in the machine.


To check your DC24's cleaner head and airways for blockages, please follow each of the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc24new/dc24-multi-floor/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usualdc24

Not sucking strongly enough


Hi Neil, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC40 isn't picking up as well as it should be, it's likely there will be a blockage that you may have missed. The most effective way to check for this is to follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc40/dc40-multi-floor-complete/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-up-well/both-checks-checking-wand-and-hose-step-1

We'd also recommend washing both filters, which should be done at least once a month in normal use - the video attached should help. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 hours for them to dry before replacing them.

If you'd like some further help after you've given this a try, please call our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA).

Suck hoover


If the wire is underneath the unit it won\'t suck up the water. I did this once. Make sure it is flush with the floor.

No sucking when the handle is down


Hi Steven, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your machine isn't picking up from the cleaner head, this may be due to a blockage. The filter may also need a wash. To check for any obstructions, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc07/dc07-animal/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/wand-suction

In normal use, DC07's filter needs to be washed at least once every 3-6 months, as shown in the video attached. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

If you do need any further advice after you've given this a try, please get in touch with us directly. You can reach our experts by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

HOW DO i GET THE WATER OUT OF THE CARPET ONCE IT'S CLEANED?


Do you have a shop vac . Take the bag out of the shop vac ,and **** up the water . When you are done open your windows and do not walk on the carpet for at least one hour . You want your carpets to dry with the pile standing up. Carpet rake is the best thing to use . Best of luck Ed.

I sucked up a dusing cloth with my ducted vacuum cleaner and now it does not **** at all. Help can not afford a three hundred dollar bill. blocked


Hi,
Turn off the power on the main vacuum unit. Then thread a plumber's snake or stiff small gauge wire from the outlet you were plugged into when the dust cloth got sucked up. With any luck, you'll be able to push it through a bit or with a small bend at the tip of the wire, you might catch hold of the rag and pull it out. You could also try sucking out the line with a shop vac by fitting it tightly into the outlet and turning on the vacuum.

hope it helps.
please rate this solution.
Thanks for using FixYa.

No suction


if this is a 9400 series check and make sure the red flap in the lid of the dirty water tank is not closed.

Kirby sentria


Hi There, The machine does not actually suck the suds up. Basically the machine lays the foam down which then crystalises and absorbs the dirt in the process. Once this has had around - 4-5 hours to dry then you vacuum up as normal taking the crystalised dirt away. You should really use the Genuine Kirby product as it's very good but you can also you any other DRY FOAM shampoo. Hope this helps Chris www.elidistribution.co.uk
