In the past when I have noticed similar issues with a vacuum of my own I found the the roller brush was not spinning. I see that you replaced the belt and roller brush already, have you looked underneath while it's running to verify that it actually spins?
Other thoughts: height adjustment for type of flooring being cleaned and also possibly seized wheels(maybe WD40 could help)
the motor spins around a steel shaft that sticks out on one end, and the belt is driven by that shaft, belts are easily damaged and broken, meaning roller wont spin. Often a burning smell of rubber is noticed after motor shaft spins on stuck belt. cause is always hair./string/something at the three contact points. motor shaft and belt, roller and vacuum body become clogged. become familiar with taking cover off roller/belt, and cleaning Checking moving parts roller/belt come out easily and simple to clean...keep spare belts.
Hi the dyson is a bit strange with this the dyson engineers use a hook to put under the belt and pull it out to allow the brush to be removed I used a metal coat hanger to make the hook after seeing the dyson engineer when ours was under warranty if you make the hook with the wire doubled up it works fine for me hope this is of help Fred
Sounds as if the v-belt came off the idler arm or you broke the v-belt. Either way, take the 4 screws out of the plate around the roller brush and make certain the belt is there and that it sits on the idler wheel. If you remove the roller brush you'll see the wheel. Pay attention to how the ends of the roller brush go back into the vacuum when inserting it and put the plate back on. Also check the thicker main belt is in place as well, it's to the left of the v-belt.
Also, the roller brush should stop when you put it in the upright position. Next time just stand it upright so the throw rug doesn't get drawn quite so far into the vacuum.
