Makes a whistling sound when turned on

My DC 14 Animal Dyson makes a whistling sound when it is running- it still picks up but the noise isn't right and bothers me- what could be wrong. I just bought a new canister for it- and clean it after every use.

Bearings in the brushroll might be siezing.
If you start snapping belts, change the brushroll.

Why has our dyson dc14 started to sound out a high pitched whistling noise and lift the exhaust filter breaking the lid ?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

A whistling noise from your DC14 could suggest a seal or component is out of place. I'm sure we can help trace the issue, and it may be a simple fix.

When you have your vacuum easily to hand, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Why does my Dyson animal squeal on carpet


Hi, there are a number of different Dyson vacuums and they vary widely in construction. Unfortunately most models have an "animal" version so that's not helpful in identifying your particular cleaner. If you know the actual model number, I'm sure I might have some ideas of what will cause squeeling.

Off the top of my head, DC25's often have issues with "whistling HEPAs" but not usually carpet related, DC17's may exhibited brush roller noises if the belt is damaged. DC07's, 14's, 33's all have a clutch drive which sometimes fail causing "racheting" or other strange noises.

I need to change my sweeper belt on my Dyson 14 Animal


When turned on and set to sweep the sweeper makes a loud noise like it has something stuck in it but the brush is turning abut not does not have a lot of sucking power. It started the other day when a blanket with tassels got caught and wund up in the brush and sucked up in the sweeper a bit. Tried to pull out while running and came out but made the loud noise. If I take off the brush then it does not make the noise when on. I think it might be the belt grooves are worn and slipping when the sweeper is in the sweeping on mode. Sorry, do not know the technical sweeper terms.

My Dyson Animal has good suction and works fine for actually picking up dirt, but when I use the vacuum with the roller, I hear a grinding/rumbling noise. Its only when I use the vacuum with the brush...


Trace the path of the suction into the tank and see if there is anything loose or ingested. Also, remove the brush and clean as best you can. Perhaps there is something caught in it. Lubricate where it makes sense with some WD40.

I cleaned the roller on my Dyson DC 07, and after reassembly, it makes a sound like the belt is being chewed. I took it apart a couple times, goes back together fine, but still makes the noise


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Your machine is designed to make this ratchet noise if the brush bar is obstructed. We would recommend checking the brush bar and soleplate area and removing any blockages or hairs/threads that are wrapped around the brush bar.

Full details on these checks can be found in our Support section online at www.dyson.com.

Kind regards
Darran
