Is your Dyson DC25 noisy? Often times when this is the case, the noise is a rattling coming from the brushbar assembly (that’s the motorised roller brush that contacts the floor).
Many people will tell you that you must fit an entire cleanerhead assembly to fix the rattling noise on your DC25. Not always the case.
First we must establish if your brushbar motor is in working order. To do this, recline the machine into the “use” position. As it tips back, the motorised brush bar should start turning. If it doesn’t, press the reset button by the power switch a few times and see if it jumps into life.
Assuming the motor is running and the brush roll turning, you may have a dreadful rattling noise coming from the front of the unit. The problem here is the brush roll itself and/or the end cap that holds the brush roll in place. Here is the brushroll:
And here is the end cap:
It is better to replace them both together as if one is worn, the other one will be as well.
So, lets look at how much they cost and where to get them from.
Dyson will sell you the brushroll for a shade under twenty quid, but they wont sell you the end cap so that’s not much use.
e-spares will sell you the pair for £29.73 including UK shipping. However, they are usually not the cheapest and are often more expensive than Dyson themselves.
Manchester Vacs will sell you the pair for £27.74 including UK shipping. You will find them both on this page: Dyson DC25 Spare Parts
