Question about Dyson DC18 all floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a Dyson DC18 which has lost suction from the hose part. The main vacuum works fine, but the hose has little to no suction. I have removed the hose and it is clear but noticed that at the base where the hose connects, a white tube is blocking the opening. How to position it correctly? Any help would be apprieciated. Thanks

SOURCE: have a dyson vacuum -
Its either that(you had it right the first, time, run a snakewire thru it) that or Dyson's ads are lying "Dyson's never lose suction", lol. It just kills me when I watch him and Orek talk about vacuums like its the second coming of christ. All you should need is a phillips head screwdriver.

its the ball cradle assembly. There is a little clip that changes the direction of the suction. that clip breaks all the time and causes the internal direction valve to stay in one position. unfortunately dyson doesnt sell these parts separate, you will have to purchase a new cradle assy. let me know if you need a part #

Had the same problem on brand new cleaner DC14 and it was the belt that drives teh front roller not being connetted to the small silver motor spindle. I just opened the front roller cover (3 easy unlocking screws on base) and saw black rubber belt was not connetted and was loose. I just flipped the belt over the silver motor spindle and away we go (after cover was put back on). It now works as it should!

I realize this questioned was posted >1 year ago, but in the event you still have the poor suction/wheezing or if anyone else has this issue, here's what worked for us.
Use a plumbers sink snake to unclog the "pipe". I thought it was the pipe on the right hand side (when you're looking at it) which needed to be unplugged. There was a little in that size, however we retrieved the nastiest "hairball" out of the left hand side (when you're looking at it) and after removing that, and re-testing, the suction was incredible. In addition, the "wheezing" noise was no longer there.
