Question about Dirt Devil Vacuums

Open Question

I have an older Dirt Devil Whiskers, it's fully charged but will not turn on. It happened right after I got it but I put it away and just took it out to see if I could use it. Any ideas?

Follow the plastic extension that runs from the trigger through the length of the handle. This requires more disassembly that at just the trigger. At the end of the plastic extension you will find a triangular-shaped "ramp" that pushes against a "button" plunger that opens the valve that releases solution. When you release the trigger, the triangular ramp retreats and the plunger is supposed to be pushed back out by an internal spring in the valve. This plunger sticks because of accumulated soap from evaporated solution. Try cleaning that valve and plunger by running clean, hot water through the system OR replace the valve. In the future ALWAYS thoroughly flush the system with hot, clean water after using the machine.

Check that the filters are completely clear and not blocked - especially the top filter on top of the bin assembly. If its clogged completely brush it free of dirt and then reassemble. Make sure the inner cone filter and mesh filter is also completely clean. Then check the hose and main dust channel - something is clogged that makes this machine overheat and stop working - and often with this model (Hoover also make it in the UK under the Alyx name) its down to clogged filters or small clogs of dust in the dust channels. 
Don't forget to rate, thanks.

SOURCE: how to put the belt on the deit devil breeze

Here is a detailed discription on how to change your belt. Turn the machine compleatly upside down and place head on a flat surface. There are 4 screws to take out, then remove the base plate. Near the back of the channel the belt rides in you will see a stright silver shaft. Place the new belt over that shaft. The put the brush roller through the belt, so the belt is in the notched out section of the brush roller. Grab both ends of the brush roller and pull till the brush roller is back in it's origial spot on the base of the vacuum. Turn the brush roller 3 compleat turns backwards, then do the same forward to seat the belt. Put back on the base plate and put back the 4 screws. You are now ready to vacuum.

Dirt devil easylite 7.2 v does not hold charge. Can you suggest any fix? Thanks


Sorry to say that the batteries seem to be worn out. Usually this is caused by using it for to short a time each time you use it. Batteries develop a 'memory' after several short time uses, and can only be charged the time it 'Thinks' is a full charge. You can try running it until it almost stops. Then let it sit for about an hour turned off, then turn it on again, and run it till it almost stops. After doing that put it on the charger for 8 hours. Then run it until it almost stops again. then charge it again. That process sometimes breaks the memory problem. If not, you need new batteries- or a new dirt devil.

Purchased dirt devil model #BD20025 2016. Does not fully charge! Light comes on then goes out after about 15 min. Solution ?


If the battery is just about shot it will do this. I know as a fact you will be lucky to get two or three years out of a battery.

How do you change bag


Hi! Below are step-by-step instructions on how to change the bag on your vacuum. This vacuum takes a Dirt Devil Type D replacement bag. I have included a link to the instruction manual, as well as a link where you may go to purchase replacement bags for your vacuum.

1. To Remove: squeeze front panel release lever and pull towards you.
2. Grasp cardboard collar of paper bag with both hands and pull past raised locking tabs on the dirt tube. Dispose of old paper bag.
3. Important: Extend bag away from hole before installing. Press in opening to clear paper away from hole.
4. To Install: Push cardboard collar past raised locking tabs on the dirt tube with both hands. Be sure paper bag is fully extended and tucked in at the top and bottom.
5. Replace front panel by putting the two bottom tabs in the slots on the vacuum. Push front panel so release lever attaches.

Dirt devil doesn[t hold charge


Try running the battery all the way down by letting the vacume run in a corner or another room and even when it stops leave it on for a hour to drain the battery. Then shut the switch off and try charging the battery. Make sure the charger is putting out enough volts by looking at the rated output of the charger and while it is plugged in check it with a volt meter. If it does not hold a charge and the charger is putting out the right voltage you need to purchase a new battery for the vacume

I have a dirt devil steam cleaner. do I put the water in both containers or the one that is long, on the handle


okay if your have one that looks like that picture for it the water goes in the white tank on the handle piece, if the water is not spraying i'm guessing your hoses are clogged, as this sometimes happens if that is the case, run some lime away through it but don't spray the limeaway on your carpet it will eat it just use it to rinse it out and clear it

I can't get the charging light to turn on.


I have the same problem, after our building had a electricity problem. The electricity spiked when the utility company came to fix a problem. Several adapters in our apartment seem to be affected. Like my Kone, my dirt devil detailer had the same problem: charging light didn't come on, and while it charges, it only gets up to weak power. I got a new charger/adapter and when I plugged it into the base, the charging light was working again.
