Check the inlet down by the brush roll, it is probably clogged. You might change the belt also if you never have, I am sure it is stretched.

My dirt devil has no main suction

You need to go a bit deeper in the unit to get what is clogged. it is most likely clogged on the inside of the unit. Take off the back and remove the inner workings following the path of the suction. Not hard to do just sucks.

The brush doesn't rotate on the turbo tool. the belt on it isn't broken it just seems really stiff to turn by hand as well

The belt doesn't have to be broken to be bad. Even if it is stretched or worn it will not turn the brush roll properly. Here is the belt you need and the manual which has instructions:

When I turn on the vacuum it's blowing air out no suction

It's clogged. Clean the hose path and either clean or replace your filters.

Brush does not spin

I thought my belt went bad....which it did, however there was another issue....The brush was not turning freeley, and would hardley turn at all, which caused my belt to go bad. Apparently, there are sealed bearings in the brush that you can not get to. If your brush will not turn, you can either spend some $$ and get a replacement. I opted to spend some time on mine, and soaked it in some Mr. Clean and water. I then sprayed brake part cleaner into both ends, and re soaked it. I then put some dish soap on either end and freed up the bearings. In between each of the steps I described above, I would try to work it by hand. I have not had a problem since, and saved some $$ too! Good luck and hope you get the same results I did;-)

Cleaned hair/string buildup around beater bar , put everything back in place now vacuum makes knocking noise and has that burning rubber smell.

This sounds like the beater belt is slipping and may be due to the fact that the beater brush is not secured correctly or there is debris / grease build up inder the belt. Try cleaning it with Methylated Spirit and repalce the belt. Do not clean the belt with this. Also do not use Surgical Spitit as it leaves an oil residue. If the belt is still a problem then replace it.

"brush bar spins erratically"

Belt needs to be replaced, it has stretched to the point that under load, it won't turn the brush roll like it should, so I would advise replacing the belt. And while you are doing that, check the brush roll and make sure the ends turn freely, if not, then replace it also. Then check the dirt inlet while you have the brush roll out.

Dirt devil ultra vision turbo model #087300

As it turns out I didn't clean the hose as well as I thought, The second time I fully removed the hose and found that where it bent was where my problem was. Along with a pen I found about three inches of dirt clogged in the hose. After removing the pen and dirt along with a new filter the vac works like new.
