Can't find owners manual for cleaning insturctions

I need to take apart my dyson aniamal DC14 and completely clean it and I can't find the manual for cleaning proceeudres. I know I am supposed to completely take apart and "wash" the pieces every six months. It has been over a year since the last time I cleaned it and I don't remember. I do remember that everything is supposed to dry completely for at least 24 hours before putting it back together, but that is what I remember.

I have a dyson animal d17 i have taken apart completly and cleaned all filters and clogs and i still have little to no suction and wont turn on in the upright position

Overheating dyson dc14

Probably has a blockage (like that's a surprise). Seriously if you have pets, these vacuums get 'hair-balls' that clog passages, overheat and will shut themselves off to protect the motor.
