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

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

Hi, I have a canister Kenmore vacuum with power head. Everytime I use it, it smells sour. Its strong and like FEET with bad odor. My old Kenmore did the same thing but I used it anyway...because the power...


Never heard of this odor but if you have had it in both vacs it might have something to do with a disintegrating rubber backing on a carpet.
Arm and Hammer makes a baking soda based vac powder that will help eliminate some odors.
Do several things , get the powder and pour a tablespoon of it or baking soda into a fresh bag. Keep your filters fresh. If you use washable filters be certain they are thoroughly dry before reinstalling. And use a Mutli ply filter bag.. and NEVER pick up anything wet or vacuum a damp carpet

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.
