There are a lot of places that it could be leaking. The most common is a valve under the hood.you will have to put water in it and watch and inspect to trace where it is leaking.

If the noise is coming from the motor area it could be your motor is bad.

The most likely cause of a very loud noise is the motor or brushroll. Dust escaping occasionally could indicate a clog somewhere.

If the smoking at the base smells like burned rubber it's probably your belt. If it smells electrical it's probably your motor or an electrical problem.

Lay the unplugged vacuum upside down and remove the bottom plate covering the brushroll to remove the brushroll and belt. Make sure brushroll bristles aren't worn, replace it also if needed. Make sure brushroll will spin freely. Put new belt around motor shaft then around brushroll. Pull on brushroll with both hands to get enough leverage to stretch the belt far enough to drop the brushroll in place. Put bottom plate back on and insure brushroll will turn by hand before you turn it back on..

There are different models with different ways to install the bag. The most common one is where the bag just pushes over the tube where the dirt comes into the dust compartment. Some have a paper bag inside a cloth bag with a variety of ways to attach the bag. For instructions on your specific model please include your model number.
