Not sucking up
Posted by Smudge935 on May 02, 2008
Hi, I have a Dyson DC05 and initially it sucks up ok then stops. On investigation the dust particles are ending up in the pre-motor filter instead of the canister.
I have checked for blockages, and cleaned filters. Any ideas????
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure.
Something is blocking the path of the dirt to the canister and it should not be going directly to the motor filter (diverter valve) that is supposed to be a backup just in case. So that the motor does not burn up, please check with you local vacuum cleaner dealer for a schematic or a product breakdown.
So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Just went through this myself. It could be a latch switch. Open the door undo the screws that holds on the inside door panel remove the latch. The 2 black boxes with wires attached are the switches. Take them out (use your camera so you know how to put back together), take to an appliance parts place, and have hem check them. Mine were fine saving me $42.00. If this isn't it (as mine wasn't) check the in-line fuse. From the switch follow the wires into the electronics box (you will have to remove the cover. The fuse on mine was attached to the top of the circut board and it had two Tan wires attached, one of these wires attaches to the latch switch. I had it tested and yep it was bad for $12.00 I had a working dishwasher, saving me lots of $$$$$$$. I hope this helps..
For Sgt 48 - You are not reading the original message very well - The original help question didn't say they saw check filter at the beginning or end of a dry cycle they indicated that the dryer STOPS MID DRY and says check filter - this is not a friendly reminder, it is indicating something is wrong and the filter needs to be completely cleaned out (and past the filter down in the interior of the dryer) and if that does not work then you need to also check the dryer hose for kinks, lint build up, etc. Lastly, reset the dryer by unplugging it (or flipping the breaker) for a minute or so and hold down on the start/pause button for 8 seconds while it is unplugged (this will reset the error code for check filter, among other things).
