Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Dyson DC17 Animal Not Sucking as Well as it Used to

\015 My machine is not picking up as well as it used to. There are no blockages anywhere, I have washed the filter and the cyclone. It picks up, but not nearly as well as it used to--I now have to go over an area several times to get it to pick up dirt that formerly needed ony one or two passes. When the machine is on and I remove the canister, the suction from the hose that goes into the canister has plenty of suction. Also, when I run the machine over carpet, it is doing the bouncy-thing when I pull it back in certain areas, which it never used to do before. I have tried everything suggested on this website and nothing is working. The Dyson site has been no help at all--it is slow and keeps timing out. Please help--I am ready to junk this machine and get something else!\015

\015\012My machine seemed to be doing the same thing--but also dust and hair was building up on top of the filter after one use. I called Dyson, and they sent me a new canister--apparently something wrong with how it was sealing.

I have an animal dyson. The front nose dives into the carpet when moving the dyson in the forward motion, fine when pulling back. A huge amount of effort is required to move it forward. Took it to a technician and he said he could find nothing wrong. He had only short nap carpet for test. Works fine on short nap, if the carpet nap has any lenght to it like shag, the dyson severly nose dives. It's like the nose is sucked into the carpet.

My dyson animal is hard to push on carpet - the beater bar is still operational. When I turn off the beater bar and run the vacuum on hardwood the beater bar stops moving, but it still ''rolls'' on the hardwood - it doesn't pull up like it used to. It also seems to not be picking up as well as it used to, although no blockages are present and the filter is clean.
