Having problems with your Eureka Whirlwind Litespeed 5740 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

Dust blowing out of the side of vacuum

\015 The vacuum has good suction and picks up well, but dust blows out the side where the allergen filter is...which I would assume is there to keep that from happening. I took the filters out of the filtration unit and cleaned and dried both of them and replaced them and added a fabric softener sheet on top just to see how much dust was getting in there. One sweep of the floor and the sheet was filthy as well as the 2 clean filters and the outside of the vac. cleaner was all dusty. I have grandchildren with allergies so this is a real concern to me\015

It blows dust out the sides and you can't vacuum with it. Any help would be great.

** suction The best way to describe it is that when I was vacuuming I could see dust clouds at the front of the vacuum where the light is swirling around in the air.

So I cleaned it out and tried it again and it still was not picking up properly. I had my husband take all the tubing apart to check for other clogging and there was none. When I
