Not extracting water from carpet

Sounds like loss or partial loss of suction. Check hose(s) for leaks and/or blockages.

I have a dyson 07. Vacuum works fine, great suction using the hose. How do I switch to using the carpet vacuum. (I lost my instruction book) Thanks

If this unit has a suction hose built in to the handle, the carpet vacuum should start working after you return the handle hose to the proper position.

Loss of suction on hand tools (DC07)

It sounds like there's probably a clog in the hose. Drop a small coin or marble down the hose and see if it falls through. There's going to be a loss of suction in the power nozzle too, just not as noticeable when vacuuming carpet.
There could also be a clog behind the filter where the hose plugs into tank, or a dirty filter.

Hi loss of suction on Dyson DC07 and I have changed the belt on the brushbar and cleaned all filters/removeable parts but still suction not very good, any other suggestions?

Check for a clog where the power nozzle connects to the hose. Clogs or leaks in the hose will both cause loss of suction/air flow. Another possibility is broken or worn out fan blades.

When i am vacuuming my sucks the dirt up when i am pushing it forward, but when i pull it back, the dirt comes back out on the carpet

This is due to a loss of suction. The roller brush sweeps the dirt to the hose area, but with no suction, when you pull the vacuum back, the brush just kicks the dirt back out. This is most likely due to a clog in part of the hose system.
You don't mention whether it's a canister or upright, but check all hoses and tube.
It can also be due to a full bag or clogged filter. Another cause could be a fault in the switch or wiring that turns on the power nozzle (only if it has a separate motor) but not the vacuum.
The fan blades could be broken or worn, which would allow the vacuum to run, but with no airflow/suction.
Or most costly, the motor is worn out and no longer working.

Power goes on but will not pull up water from carpet

In other words, there's no suction/air flow. Check hose/s for clogs or leaks. Both will cause a loss of suction, but clogs will burn out the motor.

Suction loss when handle is tipped back to clean carpet

can any one help,
Our Dyson Animal vacuum has plenty of suction when it is upright and the attachments are being used off the hose, but when the handle is tipped back to begin cleaning carpets the beater head is getting no suction. As the handle is being tipped back you can hear what sounds like a flapper valve in the body of the vacuum opening and then all the suction just goes away.

I have a u3450 1500w hoover, suction on hose works fine, but carpet suction has never worked, how can i fix this?

There must be a restriction or blockage in the carpet suction pipe. Look at the port where the hose connects to the machine and check for any accumulation of debris or blockage. The same motor drives both suction inlets so it can only be that there is an obstruction.

Sudden loss of suction.

Check the inlet down by the brush roll to see if it is clogged. Also check the belt to be sure it is ok. Is there suction at the hose? If not then it is still clogged.
