You've probably got some crud in/on/around the filters/collection systems/hoses.
You can try sucking some baking soda into it. Just pour some on the floor/rug and vacuum it up. It wont hurt your rugs...it'll actually help clean them.
However, the long term solution is to thoroughly wash all the parts of the collection system.

I have the Dyson Kinetic Big Ball Animal and it smells so bad of wet dogs. There are no filters to clean and it stinks the whole house out. I will never buy a Dyson again. Please help!


Don't blame the vacuum, blame the dogs for getting wet. But seriously, you may have to make a heavy application of disinfectant spray inside the machine. Aterwards, the entire house will have the delightful odor of disinfectant but at least the wet dog odor will be gone.

Where do I get drier sheets for my dyson to get rid of smell?


Attempt to eliminate the odor rather than mask it it. Replace the filters and clean the cyclone chamber and dust bin.

Blowing dust out even after cleaning filter


the bagless containers of these vacuums do tend to hold a strong dust odor. the only way ive found to help eliminate it is with a product that i use called FreshWave odor neutralizing pearls. you never want to use fine dust carpet freshener or any product like that cause it will eventually burn up your motor. but if you are interested give me a call and i can ship you some of the freshwave. 703-724-1112

My Dyson Animal vacuum smells horribly of dog. It's worse than my dog has ever smelled - even at his worst. How do I take apart the Animal to clean it properly? Can I use a weak water/Chlorox solution...


hi Donna.
Complete removal of pet hair from the home is a quandary many pet owners face. The Dyson Animal series vacuums use centrifugal force to remove animal hair from carpets, floors, curtains and upholstery. The high-powered vacuum is bagless, allowing you to extract pet hair from surfaces without worrying about running out of vacuum bags. As your Dyson Animal vacuum is exposed to pet hair and dander, a smell can develop. Similar to other small appliances, a vacuum needs periodic cleaning to keep it looking and smelling clean. When you use basic cleaning and deodorizing techniques, you can get the smell out of your Dyson Animal vacuum.

Step 1

Remove the bagless receptacle for pet hair according to the directions provided for your Dyson Animal vacuum. Hold the receptacle upside down inside a trash bag and tap the bottom to remove pet hair and dirt.

Step 2


Mix 1/2 tsp. of dishwashing detergent with 1/2 gallon of warm water in a bucket. Dip a clean cloth into the soap solution and wring it out.

Step 3

Wash the inside and outside of the receptacle with the cloth to remove dirt and dander that cause odor. Rinse the receptacle with a cloth dampened with water. Dry it thoroughly with another cloth.

Step 4

Remove the HEPA filter from your Dyson Animal vacuum. Pick visible clumps of pet hair off the filter and discard them. Flush the filter with cool water to wash out dirt and hair. Rinse the filter until the water runs clean. Gently squeeze the filter and allow it to air-dry for up to 12 hours to ensure it dries completely.

Step 5

Moisten a cloth with undiluted vinegar. Wipe off the exterior of the vacuum with the vinegar. Deodorize the receptacle and interior areas, where the bagless receptacle and filter go, by wiping them with the vinegar-moistened cloth. Dry the vacuum with a clean cloth.

Step 6


Place two drops of vanilla extract on a cotton ball. Drop the cotton ball into the receptacle before securing it to the vacuum to prevent odor from building up. Vanilla extract is an effective natural odor absorber.

hope this helps you out.

Have a sour odor when the vaccum is running. What could be the problem? Best way to describe the smell is that is smells like dirty feet. I have the dyson dc07 Pink


Either something you have pulled into the vacuum or perhaps the drive belt is not turning the beater brush. Remove the beater brush and clean as best you can paying particular attention to the end pieces. If possible, squirt a bit of WD40 between the beater brush and the end pieces. Turn by hand to be sure the brush is moving freely. Reassemble with new belt.
Please let me know how it turns out. Paul

Smelly Animal Bagless Dyson


You've cleaned up urine...somehow. To remove that odor, go to a local flea mkt or store that sells essential oils and buy "Citronella" (smells awesome) 1/2-1oz. bottle will last forever. Add 4-5 drops to the paper filter element - smell gone!
Good Luck

How to get rid of dog smell


I had this problem along with a clogged filter. I used the solution for clogged filter here on Fixya and the dog smell went away too. It has to do with the flange on the cylinder getting pushed up out of position. Give it a try.
