Either one of two things can be wrong. 1st and most common problem is the filter is clogged up, or too much dirt in the containment reservoir. The second problem is the belt is broke that turns the brush.

blockage in the hose sounds like the culprit remove the hose and inspect, push a broom stick through it while off and push a open coat hanger through the canal where the hose connects, if not the filter must be blocked

Do you have suction? If the bag does not inflate when you turn on the vacuum cleaner, you do not. If you aren't sure, remove the belt from the roller and test whether the vacuum cleaner can pull in a strip of tissue paper. If not, look for clogs or a problem with the blower. An overfilled bag could also cause this problem.
If you have recently had the motor brushes replaced and you have air blowing out (the bag may collapse instead of inflate when you turn it on), then the wires to the motor brushes are crossed and the motor is running backwards. You will also see the brush turning the wrong way (back to front on the bottom instead of front to back).
