Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi, we realy love our Dyson, but get frustrated when it gets clogged with pet fur (2 cats and 2 dogs). This takes a little effort but what we ended up doing was taking the vacuum apart into its major components and alternately blowing it out, filter too, with an air compressor and reaching down into the holes in the main suction compartment with "mechanical fingers" and pulling out clumps of the traped fur. Like I said it too a bit of effort to get it all out, trust me even when you think you have it all check again, but your efforts will be greatly rewarded, you will end up with a vaccuum that "really sucks!!!" (pardon the pun). Hope this helps.

Hiya... I would follow the suggestions you have been given already.. it is a bad idea to wash it..
1..You are not guaranteed to get all the dirt from the places you cant reach.
2. If you get it it wet chances are it will cake on even worse in the places you cant reach.
3. If it,s not too bad .. would use a blower to not only blow through .. but another hoover to **** out, the loose debris as you're going .. and use a long thin stiff brush etc... and no. I would suggest you dont do it in the house..lol
4. If its so bad that the cone is not serviceable.. can get a replacement UK price for around£30.. or direct from dyson!
Normally some Dyson parts can be a bit tricky to take apart, and damage will occur!
Hope its useful!
