I have the same problem. The fault is with two seal bearings inside the pump which drive the brushes. I am currently looking for the replacements. I will be calling Hoover this week.

I've cleaned the machine thoroughly, pulling hair, thread, dental floss and such from the brush (and everywhere else), including unscrewing the brush end caps and pulling out the cat hair mats which formed in there.
