My Dyson DC17 Animal brush roller makes noise when it is spinning but not when using the wand. The belt around the roller seems fine and it is not plugged. What else can I check for?

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

You may find it useful to remove the soleplate from the base of the machine and make sure that the brush bar is fitted correctly.

Once this is done, make sure there are no hairs or threads wrapped around the brush barm, particularly
at the ends.

With the soleplate removed you can also ensure that the brush bar and housing are free of blockages.

Once checked, re-fit the soleplate and test the machine.

I hope that this information is useful to you. If you need any further help or advice, contact one of our Ask Dyson experts on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards
Darran

Dyson dc17 animal how to fix loud noise.


Replacing the brushroll and belt usually takes care of it unless the motor is bad. Remove the belt tensioner. Only a few models had it and Dyson determined it isn't needed.

Check the belt to see if a layer or piece of it has come loose and is flappping around.
Check for any loose parts that could be getting hit by the brush or other moving parts.
Make sure the brush it tightly in place and can not move.

Machine is making loud sound, not normally heard. Looking for a local service provider.


You might be able to save yourself some money and do it yourself. When it makes loud noises like that it usually indicates that there is an issue with the brush roll and/or belt. Try cleaning out the roller brush and replace the belt. You can get a replacement belt here:

Loud noises are usually caused by worn belts, unbalanced roller brush or debris in the roller brush. Check these things. Here is a link to the belt you need:
