This tool is found in mid-priced options, the V7 and V8. It`s Dyson`s earliest standard brush roll option with a stiff and soft bristle combination, excellent at picking up debris on carpets.
According to Shaw Floors, manufacturer of carpet, vinyl, hardwood and laminate flooring, you should vacuum the traffic lanes in high-traffic areas daily and the entire area twice a week. For rooms with light traffic flow, vacuum the traffic lanes twice a week and the entire area once.
If you vacuum a wet carpet, dirty water could enter the motor and cause damage to it. In severe cases where the carpet is too wet, you could even risk electrocution. Even in a mild scenario, you`d still end up with a soggy mess to deal with when you eventually empty the dust bag.

.There is one major difference between the hard floor setting and the carpet setting – the brushbar doesn’t spin on the hard floor setting. Hopefully this is a simple problem – the rattling noise suggests there may be something trapped behind the brush rollers. You can inspect this by removing the sole plate from the vacuum. Doing this may allow any trapped objects to fall out without need for any further inspection:
.To remove the sole plate:
.1. Lie the dyson on it’s side so you can access the underside or sit on a chair, turn the vacuum upside down and hold it between your knees.
.2. Using a coin or a large flat-bladed screwdriver undo the two yellow fasteners on either side of the “sole plate” which covers the brush rollers.
.3. Pivot the back edge of the sole plate upwards and remove it
.Any loose debris can now be easily removed, While the sole plate is removed, it is a good opportunity to inspect the brushes and remove anything else that may be stuck to it.
.Replacing the sole plate is the exact reverse of the removal process. Before replacing the sole plate, ensure that the brush bar is correctly and fully inserted.
.There are other possible reason for the rattling noise, but your description leads me to believe that this should cure the fault. Inspect the brushbar first and then post back if you need further assistance.
Sorry to hear you’re having difficulties using your DC14 on this particular carpet. You may want to contact your carpet manufacturer to check it’s suitable for cleaning with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a revolving brush.
