It's almost impoossible to clean - I have tried a number of times - when you wash it out you can't get all of the animal hair out and now you have damp smelly hair. It really needs to be able to be opened so you can get all of the hair out. Despite what Dyson says - "I just things should work properly", it doesn't - it's primary drawback is that it is impossible to clean out.

I Have the Dyson dc23 animal stowaway canister motorhead. i want to clean the upper orange section as it is starting to hold the smell of dogs and dust but i can only seem to find videos on the upright...


Hi Ashley,

I have the DC17 Animal and my assumption would be that you could clean your canister the same way as you could clean an upright.

I've found Dyson's site pretty useful (for this specific question it may be outside their scope but maybe worth a try) http://www.dyson.com/support.aspx

I hope that's at least somewhat helpful.

Loss of suction Dyson Absolute dc17


More than likely the sole plate on the botom of the cleaner is plugged, take the bottom plate off and clean it out, also make sure your brush is clean and not full of hair. This is common on this vacuum

I opened my dc17 dyson to clean teh motor. trying


I'm not sure about all the switches used in the vacuum, but I recently took some pictures of the power button assembly. The buttons in the picture below are (from left-to-right): Circuit Breaker, Brush Switch, Power Switch

The next picture shows how the plastic buttons that operate the brush and power switches should go together:

HOW DO I DISMANTLE THE ROOT CYLONE ON A DYSON DC17 ANIMAL


The Cyclone Cylinder needs to be cleaned with hot water poured over the cyclinder and into the cylinder until the water is clear. Afterwards, shake the cylinder several times to get the excess water out. Then let the cylinder dry out for at least two days along with the filter. When my DC17 began to smell like a dirty dog, I discovered that the cylinder had a ton of hair inside it. It took quite awhile to get all of it out. Be patient. Now I know to clean my Dyson every month; otherwise, it will emit a doggy odor.
