Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Everytime I run vacuum -it smells of wet dog. We do have a dog but our dog has never smelled like that. I have cleaned everything from filter,etc. and nothing works.
I had this problem along with a clogged filter. I used the solution for clogged filter here on Fixya and the dog smell went away too. It has to do with the flange on the cylinder getting pushed up out of position. Give it a try.

Wash your filter and let it dry well also use a couple times some of the odor eliminator powder for carpets that they sell at the store . And make sure you do not vacuum any food because the odor stays.
