I thought this was a free forum. I do not intend to hire a bunch of experts to find out if a bearing can be found for my vacuum cleaner when the entire brush assembly in $39.99.
This is a very tricky way to get unsuspecting people sucked into paying for something they thought was free.
Bad business, sorry.

The All Floors model has a protective belt clutch system and the rattling sound means the clutch has slipped. This would have to be repaired officially by a Dyson repairer.

Not sure how I can help, as it seems you know what the problem is! Fit a new brush bar! On some Dyson models (not sure if the DC17 is one of them) you have to fit a new sole plate at the same time - they are supplied together as a kit. Good luck.

Thank you so much for that clarification, I know the exact model of Kenmore that you have now. This model is actually made by Panasonic for Sears who puts the Kenmore name on it. I wasn't able to located the Sears owners manual, but I did find a Panasonic model that uses the same power nozzle as yours does. I will also explain how to access the roller brush below, and if you'd like to see diagrams of how to do it, you may visit the link below to the Panasonic owners manual. Start at page 46, then go back to page 40.
In order to access the roller brush on this model, here's what you need to do. Underneath of the headlight cover, there are two screws that need to removed first. In order to get to these screws, simply push on both sides of the headlight cover, and lift it straight up while pushing both sides. After the headlight cover has been removed, you'll be able to visibly see the two screws that need to be unscrewed (phillips head screw driver). Remove these two screws next.
After the screws have been removed, turn the power head upside. If you look at both the left and the right sides, you'll see a little indentation on each side. All you need to do is put a flat head screwdriver in these indentations, and pry up on both sides. This will remove the top housing. Once you have top housing removed, you'll see there's one more cover that goes over the roller brush. There are two tabs on both sides behind the roller brush. If you squeeze these two tabs, you can now remove the white colored housing that covers the brush, and have full access to the brush.
I hope that this helps you remove the twine from your beater bar. If you found this repair helpful, please be sure to rate it by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top right hand corner. If you have any other questions about how to repair this, please feel free to request a clarification, or add a comment to the repair, and I'll be more then happy to help you.
Thanks very much,

Are you sure you have the correct belt? The proper belt is # 59156500. It is 5/16" wide and about 2 1/2" in diameter. This is not a common belt.
