I can't get the top lid off my dyson dc17. It's


You need to get a long handled t-15 driver or a t-15 bit and a bit holder and extension for a 1/4" drive socket set (12" or longer extension) to get this apart. There are only something like 6 pcs in there and once you get it apart, cleaning it is very easy. Here's a good website on how to take it apart and put it back together. I have done this and it makes a difference. Be sure to sanitize everything once you have it apart. Takes out any funky smells.

Every time i VACUUM THE DIRT AND HAIR GET STUCK ON TOP OF THE FILTER WHICH IS LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE CANISTER//


There is a black gasket type thing that fits on the bottom of the cyclone part that is supposed to keep dirt and hair from getting down to that filter. Yours is probably missing - mine was. I called Dyson and they sent me a new cyclone for free.

Shuts off in upright position and spitting dirt back out


it is a blockage. Dyson cuts off in this case to prevent overload. Also leaking dirt indicates blockage. Strip everything out you can. Remove foot plate on base and check for hair or fibre blockage. it may be small and in an odd place.. seek and ye shall find. If not, return to dealer for service. Good vacuum though.

Holes in top of dirt bin keep clogging


Make sure that your filter is clean. The holes are normally clogged.

Dyson DC17 blockage


You need to "click" off the cone part it fits tight but a little pressure will pull it (no screws holding it) off revealing more screws under. The you should be able make this apart pretty easy. Top tip :- When it's in pieces put the parts in the dish washer to get all the grim off! Don't forget to remove the black gasket it doesn't like water so much :) Good luck
