Thanks for making contact and I'm sorry you're having difficulty.

I would suggest that this is a blockage of some kind as the pulsating is caused by a lack of airflow (the motor is protecting itself by pulsating and then ultimately cutting out).

I would recommend looking at the following video which will take you through a methodical way of checking this. The model in the video is a DC59 but applies to most cordless models:

Furthermore, I would check the bin inlet to make sure that the one-way door/flap is not jammed as this also can cause the problem.

If you continue to have difficulty, please give the Dyson Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

Best wishes

I just repaired the same problem. It is not the motor. There is a defective capacitor in the regulator. Large grey capacitor should have a value of 0.22uF/275V. It was in my case just 85uF. Changed capaitor and it was OK.
