Check down by the brush roll to see if the inlet is clogged. This type of problem usually means there is a clog. But you do have a year's warr. on this, if you can't figure it out, then take it a Sears repair shop.

Which vacuum would you prefer for pet hairs ?

I've been repairing vacuums over 30 years, I prefer a bag vacuum because a good bag vacuum is a lot less maintenance, all the nasty stuff goes in a cheap paper bag (which is actually just a really good great big cheap filter) which you simply remove and gently sit in the trash. It usually takes less than 30 seconds to change bags and only needs done about once a month. You will dump a dirt cup about 40 times compared to changing one bag. Bags compact the dirt while bagless fluffs the dirt. Bagless filters and dust compartments need frequent cleaning and replaced at least once a year to work properly. Bagless vacuums leak more dust and dirt which you will notice on your vacuum. In the long run its much easier and cleaner using a bag vacuum plus they usually last much longer, usually outlasting 3 or 4 bagless vacuums. Much less expense and hassle in the long run.

How do i stop the dust/dirt from coming out of the hose tube when i remove the hose to use attachments?

It sounds like your hose is stopped up. This is a common problem with bagless machines. It's a good idea to buy a bag type vacuum cleaner when this one quits. Most of these chinese made , bagless cleaners only last one year and don't perform very well either. They stop up easily because of poor suction and poor design.

Dirt gets caught up in filter instead of in removable container

That is the problem with the bagless cleaners. The dirt goes through the cup, directly to the filter. There is nothing to keep them seperate. You can try putting a single layer of paper towel against the filter. It will provide a breathable barrier for the dirt but, it will clog too.

Bissell powerforce bagless vacuum,when turned on dust flies out sweeper

Dust flying out of the sweeper indicates that their is a blockage in the pathway that the dirt normally travels to get into the dirt collection chamber. Turn the sweeper upside down and look for a blockage of some kind. Also, empty out the canister and look to see that the pathway into the canister is clear.

Kenmore bagless upright Model # 116.35726401

There is actually an internal fuse in the vacuum. You may have blown this. The circuit board connected to the ON/OFF touch pad may be bad too but probably unlikely. There is also an overheat sensor that trips the vacuum off when it gets too hot. This could be bad preventing it from coming on too. All of these solutions, require you to open the vacuum to fix.

Kenmore Progressive 36932 Upright Vacuum

It's located inside the vacuum kind of behind the where the dirt is collected. You can open and clean but this is probably not necessary. You probably vacuum very fine dust that is hard to remove from the system.

Try replacing or cleaning all filters and letting the vaccum run for a few minutes without moving. Agitator off of course.

Getting suction to use attachments

When the vacuum is in the upright position, it should give you suction thru the hose.
