You can order the switch from the following sites. According to the first site, the DC17 and DC18 switches have the same part number, so I'd use the second site. It costs less. I didn't check the shipping costs, though.

      SOURCE: how do i replace the hepa filter on a dyson dc18? I removed it and now I cannot put it back on.

      It is very simple to change the filter and re-attach the canister. Once you have removed the main canister (the one that has the washable filter) you should see the plastic canister, which houses the Hepa Filter. 1) To make life easy, turn your vacuum around, so you are now looking at the back (where the hose and wand are). 2) Remove the hose and wand as you normally would, if you were going to use them. Just lay it on the floor. 3) Now that they are out of the way, you should see the grey plastic holder, towards the bottom (approx 6 inches above the red release peddle for the vacuum. It is attached to the vacuum with only 2 Phillips-Head screws, and was used to keep the hose in place. 4) Use a screwdriver to remove the screws (one one each side). Once it's removed you should easily beagle to change the Hepa Filter. NOTE: Pay attention to where the 4 inverted latches on the canister are, and pay special attention to the fact that there is an extra latch on the canister, which faces the opposite direction of the others. It is this latch on the canister, which must be located through the back handle of the vacuum, since this was the main latch that was secured by the grey hose piece, which you first removed. 5) To reassemble the canister, line up the clips,especially the one that I just mentioned, and make sure the canister is flush against the base. 6) Now, reattach the hose securing piece that you originally removed, and the Hepa Filter and plastic canister should now be fully secured. 7) Place the hose and wand back into their original position and you should now be ready to vacuum. I hope this was helpful. S.I. Educator

      Cannot reconect hose at base dyson dc8


      Hi Joei, it's Jack at Dyson.

      DC18's hose should clip back onto the machine without difficulty. It just pushes into place, and you should hear and feel a click as it locks securely. You might find the tips in our Support guide useful: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc18/dc18-allfloors/diagnosis-root-menu/dc18tilterwashvid/flo-dc18-gen-wand-suction/flo-dc18-gen-wand-suction-main/flo-dc18-gen-remove-the-wand-from-hose/redirect-to-flo-dc18-gen-check-the-hose/flo-dc18-gen-check-the-hose

      If you'd like further guidance on reattaching it, please give the Dyson customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), or 1800 239 766 (AU).

      On my DC18 there is no suction at the wand.I took it apart to make sure there was no clog. What switches the suction from the bottom to the wand? Thanks John


      • I actually answered a question just like this the other day. On the DC18 the switch is automatic. When the vacuum is upright the suction is automatically to the hose.
      • When you tilt the handle back the suction is automatically to the floor.
      • If you took things apart and cleaned them and have no suction through the hose when the vacuum in the upright position then this is a manufacturers defect.
      • The way I know this is for the other persons issue I called Dyson directly because I wanted to see why I could not see a switch and they told me there was none, it was automatic.
      • Here is the good news. Dyson offers a full 5 year warranty and the DC18 has only been out for 4 years. So every DC18 on the market is still under a full warranty.
      • What Dyson told me is this. Contact Dyson and they will see if their is a repair center near you and if so then you can drop it off there for a 100% free warranty repair.
      • If there is no repair shop in your area then they will ship it both ways and repair it 100% free on Dyson.

      • Here is there contact information.
      • Here is the link to choose the country should you be outside the USA. http://www.dyson.com/ If you choose that link the when the page loads got to the lower right of the screen to the fine print and click on "contact us" and the information will show up.

      Dyson DC18 wont collapse so that i can vacuum the floor.


      The DC18 has a well-known problem with the undercarriages that prevents it from collapsing. There is a forum topic on this subject here: Dyson DC18 discussion.
