Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
It is sucking from the top where the attachments go but not from the bottom. Beater is working fine. I can't find anywhere that it's clogged. Also can't get it to stand back up again.
If all hoses are clear, and filters washed then remember the most important part of the dyson is the yellow cyclon cone. I have just removed filters and ran hot water through all the tiny air holes. Now it's like new.
You can restore the standing position by standing with dyson as if you are going to start start vacuuming, if you look at the dyson on the right hand corner of the floor unit you will see a black lever, there is where you readjust standing position.

Did you check the hose attached to the floor unit - my wife had vacuumed a Mardi Gra plastic coin which plugged up the hose attached to the floor unit - in the down position, the Animal would run for about 10 seconds then blow air out the blow-by hole - I traced it down to the hose on the floor brush unit, pulled the hose and there was the plug up! The plastic piece on the right side with the rubber plug for the upright position has to be properly in place as well. Thank you for your insight as to the original problem.

Worked on one with your same problem of poor suction and won't stand up. On the left side of the handle, near the bottom, the port cover isn't on correctly. Take it off, put the handle in the upright position then reinstall the cover.
