    Same thing... when I'd try to use the wand, the hose would collapse on itself.  Took the wand off the hose and found a chuck of "dog toy" stuck towards the handle part of the wand.  I took a little bit to get everything out, but it's all clear and working like new again!

Hi Both.

Ok you have A blockage, Remove flexi hose completly from rear of machine & completly remove wand & handle from the hose.

Now check flexi hose for obstruction if none present move on to the wand & hanndle look down through tha wand for any obstruction look very carefully where the plastic handle meets alloy tube there is A slight bend here often A coin gets stuck here & flips accross to block oppening when you try to use wand.

If you cant see anything coin etc put hose back on machine & switch on there should be good suction from the flexi hose,
Now with machine still switched on push alloy pipe back on if the hose suddenly pulls back & there is poor or no suction you definately have A coin stuck at the bend.

You will need A broom handle or other long solid pole to hit it out.

I had the same problem.  I removed the wand and found a button causing the blockage in the wand.  I used a sewer snake to remove it.  So start by detaching your wand from the hose and checking for blockage.  If you can't see daylight by looking thru the wand, you've got blockage that's causing your problem.

Dyson no suction in upholstery wand


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

Like most Dyson upright vacuums, DC18 is engineered to divert suction to the hose and wand automatically when it's standing in the upright position. If your DC18 doesn't seem to have suction from the wand when standing upright, you may have a blockage in the hose or wand. Please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide to check for this: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc18/dc18-all-floors/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/no/remove-the-wand-from-hose

It's also a good idea to give the filter a wash - in normal use, this should be done at least once every 3 months as shown in the video below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 24 horus for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

I'm confident following these steps will resolve the issue. However if you'd like any further guidance from our experts after you've given this a try, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

My Dyson DC07 vacuum works on the floors, but when I pull out the extension wand the coiled hose attached to the wand collapses and no suction goes through the hose?


Hi there, it sounds like you have a blockage in the hose. I have made a video to show you how to get the hose off and linked it to this answer. It is possible to split the hose in places trying to get the blockage out so try not to be rough. If you do damage the hose you will need to buy a new DC07 hose it is a waste of time trying to repair. If this was a helpful answer please take a moment to rate it or leave a testimonial.

The hand held attachment no longer has suction. The hose collapses when I try to use it. Have cleaned the vacuum thoroughly and the filter. This still happens. Ive taken all the parts off and cleaned...


Hi, please ensure that the hose is fitted correctly into the base of the Dyson. If this becomes loose or detached the machine will not **** whilst using the hose. Also check that the u bend is fitted correctly. Finally check that the vent on the left hand side (when standing behind the machine) is correctly inserted. The other issue could be that the Wand itself is blocked. Try detaching the wand from the hose and see if the hose has suction. If it does then the wand is blocked, if it doesnt then the problem lies elsewhere.

How do you remove the hose to ck for blockage?


If the hose collapses and there is no suction, that is a sure sign of a clog. The clog will be on the opposite side of the collapsing hose from the motor. Good luck.

A Dyson dc 17 Animal and the wand/hose has lost suction


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

From your description of the problem, it sounds as though the wand/hose is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose assembly from the machine, switch it on and test the suction from the top of the wand with your hand. If the suction is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction from the top of the hose. If its good here, then you know that the wand handle is blocked.

For the full diagnostics, check out the Support section on our website at www.dyson.com or call our Helpline on 1866MYDYSON.

Kind regards

No suction on wand of Dyson DC14 Animal


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose from the machine as if you were going to use it to vacuum the stairs. Switch the machine on and test the suction at the top of the wand handle with your hand. If the suction from the wand is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction again from the top of the hose. If the suction here is good, then you know the wand handle is blocked. If the suction is poor at the hose, you can remove the hose from the machine and clear any blockages here.

For the full blockage procedure please visit the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

Kind regards

You have a clog in either your hose or your wand. You need to take off the wand and hose and inspect them.
