Dyson Animal, lost suction and bypass valve seems to be loose

My Dyson Animal will not hardly **** at all.  I suspect it is the bypass valve on the side as it doesn't seem to seat down properly and comes off way to easily.  Please help.

Most suction problems are caused by a clog from picking up something you probably didn't see or if you have pets an accumulation of pet hairs!

To clear it out take a metal coat hanger and unbend it til it's straight, then bend the end and tape it so when you push it through to unclog your vac it doesn't rip the hose.

Push the coat hanger in from the bottom brush area through the opening where the suction is. Also push it in and out anywhere else you can......You'll probably find something clogged....keep working it til it loosens and intermittently turn on the suction.

If you have a second vac with a hose, use that hose for suction on the clogged vac!

This should do it!

No suction when I release the wand


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC28 doesn't seem to have suction through the hose, it's likely you have a blockage in the hose, wand or airway. To check for this, please follow the steps shown in our online Support guide:

http://www.dyson.com/support/dc28/dc28-animal/diagnosis-root-menu/dc28filterwashvid/wand-suction-dc28

This should resolve the issue, but if you need further help after giving this a try we're on hand to offer advice. Just give us a call 1-866-693-9766 (US), or 1-877-397-6622 (CA). If a repair or replacement part is needed, we can also confirm if this is covered under our 5-year warranty.

If your Dyson DC41, DC43, DC65 or DC66 upright vacuum cleaner doesn't seem to be picking up as well as it should be through the hose, wand or cleaning tools, this may be due to a blockage. A blockage could occur if an item too big for the machine has been accidentally vacuumed up.

After turning off and unplugging the machine, please follow the steps shown in the video to locate and remove any obstructions from the wand, hose and changeover valve.

Dyson dc28 animal


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

If your DC28 won't recline into the normal vacuuming position, it's possible that an object such as a pen has been accidentally vacuumed up, and is jamming the changeover valve. To check for this, please unplug the vacuum and lie it on its side, then open the airway inspection port and remove any objects or debris:

Suction only coming through the wand when its replaced its not switching back to the upright. I have a dyson DC28 animal


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC28 doesn't seem to be working correctly. It sounds as though the change-over valve may be jammed - this diverts the suction to the hose when you remove the wand, and back to the cleaner head when you replace the wand on your machine.

You may find a blockage is jamming the valve - you can check for this using our online Support guide:

If you can't find any obstructions, please get in touch with us directly as we'd appreciate the opportunity to provide further assistance. If you email us at askdysonUS@dyson.com, we'll be in touch as soon as possible.
