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.

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

The purple cylinder on my Dyson 14 Animal vacuum smells terrible


Make sure that the filter is completely dry before you reinsert it. If not, it will mildew, emitting a horrible smell. When you clean your cylinder, you must wait for at least three to four days to make sure that it is completely dry.

HOW DO I DISMANTLE THE ROOT CYLONE ON A DYSON DC17 ANIMAL


The Cyclone Cylinder needs to be cleaned with hot water poured over the cyclinder and into the cylinder until the water is clear. Afterwards, shake the cylinder several times to get the excess water out. Then let the cylinder dry out for at least two days along with the filter. When my DC17 began to smell like a dirty dog, I discovered that the cylinder had a ton of hair inside it. It took quite awhile to get all of it out. Be patient. Now I know to clean my Dyson every month; otherwise, it will emit a doggy odor.

Dc 14 animal emits a terrible smell after about ten minutes of us


You can take a Febreze sheet and put it into the canister/dirt bin where the dirt spins around. It'll spin around whilst you vacuum your house and it'll spread the fragrance through the vacuum and hopefully get rid of the smell for you.

You can also blow out the cyclone with an air compressor or a leaf blower by opening the bin door on the bottom of the dirt bin and blowing up the cyclone in the middle - perhaps there is something lodged up there that is causing the foul odor.

Deodorizing the vacuum


First of all Clean out the vacum cleaner . Empty canister and take filter outside and hit on something to get all dust out . Now wash canister and filter with vinegar water and let dry before using vacum again. You might try using carpet fresh for pet odors on carpet and empty and clean canister and filter regularly. I own a cleaning business and this is a hard problem to solve with all vac. cleaners. 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.

Dog smell after cleaning


This is an inherent problem with bagless vacuums. The filter(s) will absorb odors and odors will get trapped in places that you cannot clean. This is why I always recommend bagged units. They are easier to clean and the odors go out with the bag. About the only thing you can do is put a deodorizer in the machine and keep the filter clean. Be careful not to use petroleum based deodorizers as they can affect the plastic.
