Kenmore Progressive Direct Drive Upright - noise and bad suction

\015 Working great, then one day, a horrible sound started coming out of it. When you turn it on, it sounds fine. It's when you put it to work the sound comes out (the tighter the suction gets, like when you put your hand over the opening of the hose, the louder it gets). made sure the bag was ok, nothing blocking the hose or opening. Figured out the sound is coming from this small air filter type opening on the back right behind the hose when it's wrapped up. Loud vibrating sound. If you put something over that small area, sound goes away. Also, the vacuum is hardly picking anything up, which is very frustrating. Any ideas? Very expensive vacuum, only used probably 8 times in 6 months before problem started.\015

Had the same problem tonight. Took the entire thing apart only to find there was a much simpler solution. Check the small hose that runs from the brush rollers where the longer hose (on the back) attaches to the side of the vacuum. Easiest way to do this is to lay the handle down and stick something (coat hanger worked good) through it until it comes out of the head. I found a pretty good sized fuzz plug in mine. As soon as I removed it, everything worked great again - and no noise!
It does work to clean out where the hose hooks into the vacuum. I took a hanger and went up through the bottom and cleaned it out. I had a nail or something caught and it was backed up a bunch with pet hair, debris. It stopped making that noise right after I got down unblocking it. It did take some patience and some time just to warn you. But it did stop making that terrible sound. Hope this helps.

My upright kenmore progressive vacuum will not suction up when using the sweeper. It will suction things when I use one of the tools.

My Kenmore progressive vacuum is extremely loud. The airflow and suction seem to be uninhibited, but the noise is loud and frustrating. Should the filters just be cleaned or is this a sign of a different problem? It's a Kenmore Progressive Bagless Upright Vacuum 35912 and we've had it for about four years.

We have the Kenmore progressive direct drive (bagless) and have had it for about 3 years. We have taken good care of it, and paid quite a bit for it hoping that it would last for a good long time.
