Hi Bob.

If you look carefully where hose & elbow jount enter machine you will see a slot.
Rotate elbow so that lug on elbow aligns with slot & pull off.

Change the Hepa filter on Dyson dc15

Now for a proper answer haha,

Remove the bin and underneath you will find a large disc (filter holder) that the bin in sits on. This needs to be removed. Its not as easy as it should be either.

Lay the machine flat on a table and stand behind the filter and pull the two top tab points with some firmly place fingers. Once these tabs release the last bottom tab can be gently flipped off with a flat blade screwdriver from the back (behind the wand hose).

I like to peel out the old filter and clean it up with a razor blade. Once this is done you can fit a lower cost DC14 filter in and save some money. No peeling needed if you buy a DC15 filter for big bucks.

Good luck.

Dyson dc15 animal brush won't turn

Hi there,

Your DC15 is equipped with a sensor which shuts off the brushbar if something jams it. Once you've checked the cleaner head for obstructions and removed any threads or hair from the brushbar, you should be able to reset the machine. For guidance on doing this, please refer to our online support guide:

This should resolve the issue, but if you'd like any further assistance, please call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,
