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).

Root cyclone 12 loss of suction. How do I solve as both filters have been cleaned


Hi Pat, it's Jack at Dyson.

Performance issues are usually simple to resolve. DC11 has two filters - the 2-part pre-filter (the yellow plastic outer casing the the blue foam inner section) should be washed at least once every three months. The post-filter is engineered to last the lifetime of the machine without maintenance or replacement. If you have washed the post-filter, unfortunately this may have caused damage and we would recommend replacing it.

It sounds as if your machine has a blockage somewhere in the floor tool, wand or hose. To locate and remove this please follow the steps shown in our online support guide: http://www.dyson.com/support/dc11/dc11-sy-allergy/using-my-dyson-list/redirect-to-dc11filterwashvid/dc11filterwashvid/flo-dc11-gen-blockage-procedure6

If you'd like some further advice from our experts after you've given this a try, please call us directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How many filters does a dc08 have?


2 the motor filter which is washable and the lifetime hepa filter that you bnever have to change.
Here are a few links to Dyson for you. if you remove the bin and cyclone top assembly (as if you were going to empty it) you should see on the body of the machine a small tab on the top of the body in between the 2 wheels. Simply lift this tab and you should find the filter. It will be a two part filter with a blue sponge and yellow casing.

For full details visit www.dyson.co.uk/support. Select Using your Dyson, or How to wash my filter from the home page, pick your Dyson vacuum cleaner and you will be able to view a step by step guide on how to find the filter and how to wash it.

There is also a post filter which is locate underneath a disc which is under the clear bin, however this filter should never need to be replaced as it should last the lifetime of the machine and it does not need to be cleaned.

I hope that this information is useful to you. If it is a vote with the thumbs up is greatly appreciated.

How do i wash my filter on my dc08?


There are 2 filters on your dc08 the one that is under the bin is sold as being lifetime which I strongly disagree with. I work as a vacuum Technician and I would strongly encourage you to buy a new exhaust filter every 2 years. The filter at the top of the machine can be washed in normal tap water. The filter is in two pieces, the blue sponge part can just be squeezed like a kitchen sponge the other part with the colored plastic casing can be gently scrubbed with a toothbrush or similar. It is important to remember that the more often you wash the sponge part the less often you will need to was the cage. If you need to buy a new Dyson washable filter because yours won't come clean they are only $20 so just visit NelsonVacuums or VacuumSpot and have one delivered.

Loss of performance, belt seems ok filter is clean


the lifetime pre motor filter could be blocked, dust filter (Blue) in the circular housing end of motor housing. or the machine air intake is blocked or the cyclonic chamber needs removing and cleaning. All of the bits not silver grey can be removed take them off and clear out the tubes. If after this it has still got the lack of power the motor may be on its way out (but you would be able to smell it burning) hope this helps

How do you clean out the filters on the DC17?


You only have to wash the filter that is underneath the canister - take it out, wash it in cold water and leave it out to dry for at least 24 hours. This filter is blue (or gray when it is dirty) and has the number "6" on it.

The other filter in the machine is a lifetime filter and if you wash it you will damage it and you'll have to buy a new one.

Dyson DC07 shuts down after 5-10 minutes of use and horrible suction!


I have had this problem on two dysons and have solved it by replacing the so called lifetime pre-filter. The problem is not the washable blue sponge but the material gauze filter in the plastic surround.

To see if this is your problem try removing the whole filter (i.e. the filter with the blue sponge inside - you need to remove both bits not just the sponge).

If you do a quick vacuum test for a few minutes then see what effect this has on the suction.

If you need a new part try somewhere like here (you'll need to chose for the right model) : http://www.espares.co.uk/part/dyson/dc07/p/1086/716/6/420625/875479/lifetime-pre-motor-dyson-.html

As I say this has fixed both of mine.

i managed to take the cyclone apart. here is some help with what i did I hope this helps. You will need a philips and torx screw drivers. Especially torx with T - handles and thin shaft makes the task much faster and easier.
1. first undo the screws holding the top handle.
2. lift that part of the handle and pull towards the other end of the handle at the same time. Care this is a tricky manoeuvre but the other end is just sloted in. sometimes may be glued so some force may be needed. see photo 1
59cbdbc.jpg
3 Once the handle is off. there will be screw under the end that you pulled off. undo that screw. see photo 57bd18a.jpg



4. Now turn the cyclone upside down. Pull the cone off. this is only a push fit and should pull off

5. Now you should be able to see the three torx screws holes as indicated in the photo.38c6322.jpg

6 The removal of these torx will enable this section to be pulled off exposing one more layer with three further torx screws to be removed as indicated in the next photo7a60cdc.jpg
7 Once the final torx screws are removed, turn the cyclone upright and the top bit which held the handle should come off exposing the complex combe structure. see photo 92fa764.jpg
8 Then you should be able to lift the combe structure as well see photo 349cdfc.jpg

9. and final photo of all the part that have come apart d6aa9d9.jpg

10. Thoroughly was all the parts with water and make ABSOLUTLY sure that the part are dry before putting it altogather again. Your vacuum will be as good as new. mine was. good luck and happy cleaning.
