Turn the Dyson on its back as if you were servicing the beater brush and on the RH side you'll see the filter housing for the HEPA and a T-15 Torx screw. Remove this screw and then remove the cover for the HEPA filter.

    My DC17 had just a normal phillips head screw to hold the filter on.

I have a DC-07 Animal and I have taken it apart many a time and cleaned at least the plastic parts. Its all modular. I would just make sure nothing is clogged.. Remember the Hepa filter is not washable just the sponge filter. So if you took out the filter and left in the Helpa filter I would order a new Hepa filter - its probably clogged by now! Beat of luck!

My Dyson Ball DC 25 made very loud noise when I put the hepa filter back on. I just washed the hepa filter and it had been dried for more than 24 hours. After I took off the filter, the sound was normal....


It sounds like it could need replaced or there is something stopped up in it somewhere . Clean all the crevices in it dirt could possibly be congested in it . If it still does it after you clean it out change the filter .

How do you get the clear plastic housing off to replace Hepa Filter on a Dyson DC 18 ?


Don't take the clear plastic housing off. The lower hepa filter is not meant to be cleaned, only the top filter needs to be cleaned, every three months. I just talked to the Dyson rep about the same issue.

I have a dyson dc 17 what is the best way to thourghly cleaning , so I can get better suction , also do you have a instruction manul to. I seem to have misplaced mine thanks


The first step towards improving the suction is to clean the circular HEPA filter. The filter also houses a circular sponge which should be rinsed and dried before putting it back. Check the HEPA filter to see if it needs replacement -- will look muddy! Another quick check is to remove the HEPA filter, run the vacuum cleaner momentarily in upright position to check if suction is restored at the hose end.

After doing this if suction is still poor or non existent, you should detach the transparent canister - a bit tricky since the release rod for the flap has to be aligned when you want to reassemble the unit.
Once the canister is removed, you should check and clean the center tube/shaft for any clogged dust (use a wire coat hanger if needed to pry out the dust). This tube gets clogged if the vacuum cleaner was used to pick up damp/wet spills etc.

Hepa filter on dyson dc01


Not sure about you model, but some of the dyson's have the hepa filter under the dirt container. Remove the container, there is a cover that comes off and the filter is under that cover.
