Check further down, by the brush roll, the inlet may be clogged, or something like a nail or pin wedged sideways in the hose, and catches debris and clogs up. This has a one year warranty, if you still can't firgure it out, take it to a warranty shop and take proof of purchase with you.

Why doesn't my dirt devil vision turbo have any suction through the hose yet there's good suction at the hose connection to the canister?

The hose is probably blocked. If possible reverse it (put the intake of the hose on the canister connection) that should suck out the obstruction. If that fails try to carefully push a broom handle into the hose, preferably from the end that connects to the canister. Put the hose back on normally and see what happens.

Hi my dirt devil vision vacuum is having problems. I turn it on and its sounds like its working, but it is not cleaning. Is there a quick fix?

Check there is no blockage in hose. If bagless check filter they clog up quickly I personally dislike bagless vacumns

The vaccum doesn't pick up dirt, it sprays out

There is probably a second or third filter (besides the canister) that needs to be cleaned.
I doubt that it's rotating the wrong direction.

yes your intake hose is clogged thats the clear hose you can see it on the bottom from the back.disconnect the upper hose from your intake hose and try to push a coat hanger through with the end of the coat hangers end bent till its rounded so you don't puncture the intake hose
