Remove rug tool


I can't say how to do it on your model because you did not say what vacuum you have. On most vacuums the hose is held onto the rug tool by friction and can be pulled out with a twist. Dirt and rust can cause them to stick.

WILL i HARM the hardwood floor under my Area rug to be shampooed. No pad underneath


Simple answer: YES

Anytime you are sampooing anything the under surface will be exposed to the cleaner. Move throw rugs to a location safe for the cleaner. Kitchen floors are usually good for this or a concrete floor. Remember to let carpet dry completely before replacing it. It will be lighter when dry so easier to move. But as a glass on a wood side table leaving a ring a wet carpet can leave a shaped stain.

Why am I unable to push vacuum forward on new area rug. But will work pulling backward. Works fine on old rugs and floor


It might be that the new rug has a backing that is not as stiff a the other rugs which can cause a rug to bunch up making it hard to push the vacuum forward.

Cannot push vacuum forward on new area rug. But will work pulling backward. Still works on old area rugs and floors.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty using your DC25 on this particular new area rug. As you've confirmed the vacuum works as normal on other rugs and hard floors, it doesn't sound like there's a fault with the vacuum itself.

As lightweight area rugs are not fixed to the floor, it's possible for the rug to lift and seal against the soleplate of the cleaner head, due to your DC25's powerful suction. As this will reduce the amount of airflow entering the cleaner head, you may need to use more push force than usual when vacuuming this type of flooring.

We would encourage you to check directly with the rug manufacturer, as they'll be best placed to provide information on correctly caring for this particular floor type.

If you'd like to discuss the issue you're experiencing with our experts, you're welcome to call us directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

I ran over a big floor rug with my vacuum and some of the strings from the rug got tangled in the roller on the vacuum. It makes a terribly loud noise even now after I have cleared the strings from the...


You will need to pull the roller out and clean it. I think some of the strings are tangle up at the end of this roller. (Most rollers will come apart at the end for cleaning.) Make sure that the strings are not tangle up on the belt pulley as well. I hope this will help you.

Noisy on rugs!


Are the rugs long haired or short haired? Most likely the suction is just causing the noise when it picks up the rug and the buzz saw could be the beater bar hitting the rug then. I actually own a DC14 and it does the same thing and the rugs like to be dragged along. Nothing really to fix this, just the way it is. You could try it with the beater bar raised and see how well it works then but this sounds normal.

Have a good day

Loud noise


This is the clutch as it jams up in the brush. Usually happens with rugs that are not secured to the floor.
