The vacumm turns on but does not pick up anything. Does this model use a belt or not? I already have another vacumn so if it is going to cost too much to fix, I will just continue using the other one.
Please let me know what the problem can be and I will try to fix it myself first and then if not I will just get rid of it because it is just taking up unnecessary space if it is not going to be used.

Is the belt on the beater bar broken? You can check it by removing the screws that are on the bottom and taking off the plate. Look at the long bar that run across the bottom and there will usually be a belt that turns it. If that is broken it causes problems. If not the belt then maybe the filter. If you cleaned everything and you are sure there is no blockage you might just have to go out and purchase a new vacuum. You did not mention what model of vacuum it is.
Sounds to me like the belt has gone or at least stretched so it is slipping on the spindle, take the brush out and check for hair or anything wound round where the belt grips...don't know this particular vac but usually belts are not too difficult to change. Get a new belt from your hardware shop
the reason the brushes are not spinning is because the belt is slipping, the belt is the bad that connects to the brush to a shaft that makes it spin. Next problam is it is probobly clogged. so water is not going through all the way
