Dirt Devil Bagless Upright - where does hose attach?

There seems to be no place for the hose on a new, Dirt Devil Bagless Upright to be affixed for suction to kick in.

Is a design flaw? Where I think the hose goes, has no suction whatsoever.

H-E-L-P!

take off the bottom like you are replacing the belt. You will find a little metal clip that controls the upright lock.  It may be lose or broken.

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Vibe No Suction

Sounds like there is a clog somwhere. Check the hose - you can undo the hose with a screwdriver but because of that bend use a pipe cleaner or a long wire to see if there is anything blocking the tube. Next check the dirt channels from the bottom of the hose on the Dirt Devil Vibe once the hose has been taken off. Check that the bottom part is clear and then tip the machine over, remove the bottom sole plate (4 screws, 2 at the front and 2 at the back near the rear wheels) to check the roller brush - sometimes if there is an obstruction in the dirt channel from the roller brush suction will not get through.

Dont forget however that there are two filters on the Dirt Devil Vibe. The top filter has to be unscrewed and then unlocked. Tap it a couple of times to dislodge any dirt and then lift out the second part filter at the top of the bin.

Dont forget to rate if this advice works. Thanks.

SOURCE: I have a dirt devil featherlite bagless vacuum;

there are 3 screws 2 on the left side behind the hose and 1 on the right back by the wheel.that will take the cover off.if you need to get into the bottom there is a screw on the bottom plate in the area where it looks like the belt travels.is the brush roller turning if not then your belt is probably broke.before you replace the belt clean off the motor shaft and get the old rubber off it otherwise the new belt won't last long.please leave feedback .be sure to clean your filter inside the dirt cup

SOURCE: Dirt Devil Upright Bagless Vibe Vacuum no longer sucks

Sounds like there's a clog in the long hose that connects to the dirt canister. Remove the hose completely and check for clogs. There is a blue plastic piece that the hose is attached to. You can remove it by taking out the two screws in the back, and the four screws behind the dirt canister. Once those are removed, the hose comes away from the vacuum with the blue plastic piece attached. That should allow you to check for clogs. If necessary, take the hose outside or a place that is well lit, so you can visually verify the absence of clogs.

Why is my Dirt Devil Vacuum Hose lacking suction?


I have a Dyson and was having a similar problem some time back. I found out these bagless systems still have a filter that picks up the fine dust to keep it contained. Find out where yours is located and beat the dust out of it really good or just replace it.
Hope this helps.

Dirt Devil bagless upright. sucks up dirt in the front and spits it out in the back. I have taken it apart to check for visible clogs in hoses and checked belt and rollers all of which are fine. what next?


There seems to be no vacuum drawing the debris away from the brush head. Remove the debris canister to check for air blowing into it. Check particularly, the area where the brush head pivots off of the upright portion. Hope this helps!

How do I repalce the belt on Dirt Devil Swivel Glide upright vac?


Four screws hold the bottom plate in place. Turn the vac upside down and remove the screws that hold the cover(bottom plate) over the brush roll in place. Remove the plate and you are there.

Dirt Devil Purpose for Pets won't ****!!!!


The filters will need cleaning. Make sure the entire cone filter has been gently brushed getting rid of all dust. Also check in the main dust channel where the beater bar is. It may well be clogged and best to check the hose too.

Dynamite Dirt Devil Hose


I figured out how last night.
Take a screw driver and unscrew the screw on the top of hose and take the hose out and take a pen or something long enough with grip to get all of the junk out.

The circulation still isn't as strong though.
