My dyson animal sounds like something is stuck and flapping in the hose,filter, etc. I have taken it apart and I can not find anything. Have you had anyone else experience this issue?


try changing the filter. could be it is coming apart and making the noise. Also sometime these hoses will tear on the inside (lining of hose) and make a flapping or knocking sound. Check the hose as well.

How to clean 2 tier radial cyclones on dyson DC 50


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC50 has two lifetime washable filters, which we recommend washing at least once a month in normal use. Use cold water without detergent and allow at least 24 hours for both filters to dry completely before replacing them in the machine.


The cyclone pack itself doesn't require any maintenance - it should never be washed or submerged as this could cause damage not covered under your Dyson guarantee. However you can remove the clear bin from the cyclone pack, then use a soft brush or dry cloth to remove any fluff or debris from the mesh shroud. The inside of the clear bin can also be wiped with a damp cloth - make sure it's completely dry before reassembling.

To remove the clear bin, press the red bin base release button to open the bin base, as if you were emptying the machine. Then with the bin base still open, press the silver catch on the rear of the cyclone pack to disengage the clear bin.

If you'd like any further guidance on correctly caring for your DC50 without causing damage, you're welcome to get in touch directly. You can call us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Why does my dyson filter smell of dog *** when i let it dry before replacing it after washing


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

As you'll probably be aware, DC59 has one washable filter, engineered to last the lifetime of the vacuum. We recommend washing this at least once a month using cold water without detergent, as shown in the video below:

Always allow the filter to dry completely before replacing it - this may take at least 24 hours. Replacing the filter when damp could cause damage to the machine not covered under guarantee, and could also contribute to any odour coming from the vacuum. It may help to place the filter somewhere warm to dry, such as by a radiator, in an airing cupboard or on a sunny window sill.

Please note, the cyclone pack and clear bin should never be washed or submerged in water as this could cause permanent damage to the vacuum. However, it is possible to separate the clear bin from the cyclone pack as shown below. You can then use a soft brush to remove any fluff or debris from the mesh shroud, and you can wipe the inside of the clear bin with a damp cloth to remove any clinging dust particles. Make sure the bin is completely dry before reassembling.

I hope this helps, but if you'd like any further advice on cleaning or maintaining your DC59, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

I just ordered/received the filter apparatus that attaches to the clear plastic canister, BUT I can't seem to remove it.


The filters on a Dyson DC07 dont go inside the clear bin. There are 2 filters in this machine the first which is your washable filter is on the lower right side of the vacuum, if your facing the front of the vacuum. to remove this filter you push on the purple fiter catch button and lift up on that filter area then your filter will be in there. the only other filter is your permanate Hepa filter. which sits under neath the clear bin assy but that should almost never be removed. if you do need to the are 3 spots on the gray plastic lid. you take a flat head screw driver and gently slide it in the slots starting with the sides and then moving to the one in the middle in the front and then you just get under the lip and pop it up. and then you can access that filter. but again that is a permanate filter. it should not have to be replaced. and it can never be washed.

My Dyson is clogged on top of the cyclones and I cannot find a way to open it up to get the clog out. Please help me. I have the purple upright Dyson. Thank you


Hi, Thankyou for using FixYa, We love to fix things.

Hi your version of the Dyson is the Animal if its purple.

Right, here we go.

1. Firstly you have to detach the cyclone from the main spine, as you would when you wish to take it off to empty it. So you now have the Cyclone and the clear plastic bin in your hand.
2 Next we need to empty the clear plastic bin, just do this as you normally would by pulling the little Silver lever which is underneath the handle. The handle i am refering to says Dyson on it, curved shape. This releases the bin flap and lets any debris fall out. So you now have the cyclone and the bin with the bin flap open.
3. to seperate the Clear bin from the cyclone the bin flap must be open. At the top of the bin and the bottom of the cyclone at the front (directly down from the handle) you will see a purple lever attached to the cyclone and a clear handle on the bin itself. Simply push the purple lever upwards and the bin will seperate from the cyclone.

4. You will now have access to the cyclone.

5. To clean the cyclone properly i would suggest you powerwash it completly. You can also clean inside the cyclone as well as cleaning the wee holes at the top of it.

6. I would then recommend you use a germ killer such as mild bleach on the cyclone. rinse then let dry before using. Do not let water get into the Dyson motor as this will damage it.

7. You can also clean the bin using a pwer washer and bleach or Mr Muscle etc.

8. Simply re-attache the bin to the cyclone. It just clicks back in.

I hope you found this advise usefull

The purple cylinder on my Dyson 14 Animal vacuum smells terrible


Make sure that the filter is completely dry before you reinsert it. If not, it will mildew, emitting a horrible smell. When you clean your cylinder, you must wait for at least three to four days to make sure that it is completely dry.

Hair on top of washable filter on d14 animal


One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. Check that all the seals are undamaged and in place, especially the big black ring at the bottom of the yellow bit inside the clear bin.  Also check that the bin base closes tight after you've emptied it.
If this doesn't help, please post a response and I'll try again.  If it does help, please remember to rate me!
