Question about Dyson DC14 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hovering normally for 30 seconds in up right position then loss off suction then loss of air through valve at top of filter above cyclone.
It sounds like the same problem I was having. I had loss of suction through he hose then all of the air was coming out through the vent/valve on top of canister. If you are looking at your dyson from the back, look at the bottom. You will see a purple plastic tab on the bottom left. That allows you to remove the plastic u-shaped hose that goes from the hose to the bottom of the dyson. I just removed that and found it was completley blocked. I removed it and the dyson has no loss of suction orair through top valve/vent. I hope this helps. I never post but i'm just excited that I got my dyson working perfectly again.

Hello! I had the exact problem. The dyson would start up and then about 10 sec into it, it would **** air into the top valve there in front of the attachments. I released the bottom elbow piece (the one you see when looking at the back of the vacuum, at the bottom; color is purple on this DC14). It was clogged SHUT with foam, feathers, tons of hair, dust, and even a writing pen! lol Unclogged; works like new. Thank you!!

I tried all the above and did inevitably find some lumps of dirt. However, I also had to unscrew the bottom part of the hoover (to expose the spinning brush). I used a penny to unscrew three of the holding silver nuts to find a lot more heaps of fluff. Dont be afraid to tug and pull at some of the plastic components to persuade them to come out! It all goes back together again quite easily.

I had the same problem. Called the engineer. They checked over the phone that I had washed the filters, which I had. However when the engineer came he said the filters weren't clean enough. On the DC14 you should give the sponge a good rinse and squeeze but also you should gently scrub and soak the filter holder. Not just run it under the tap as per the diagram. This fixed the problem.
