SOURCE: dyson 18 losing suction

Check the HEPA filter if it has one. This bit of foam gets clogged over time and significantly reduces the suction especially if you've been vacuuming a lot of very dusty areas i.e. dust from building work etc. Just wash the filter with lots of water and leave to dry before reinserting.

SOURCE: Dyson Animal, lost suction and bypass valve seems to be loose

Dear terrygivens, 2-17-2009 4:12am EST (USA)

Most suction problems are caused by a clog from picking up something you probably didn't see or if you have pets an accumulation of pet hairs!

To clear it out take a metal coat hanger and unbend it til it's straight, then bend the end and tape it so when you push it through to unclog your vac it doesn't rip the hose.

Push the coat hanger in from the bottom brush area through the opening where the suction is. Also push it in and out anywhere else you can......You'll probably find something clogged....keep working it til it loosens and intermittently turn on the suction.

If you have a second vac with a hose, use that hose for suction on the clogged vac!

This should do it!

SOURCE: My dyson seems to have lost suction?

If the usual clog clearing and filter cleaning doesn;t work-> I love the Dyson (DC07), but after 7 or 8 years it lost suction and needed some attention beyond filter cleaning. After much online research I found the few bits of advice that for me were the holy grail. After all of the standard stuff, clear clogs, clean filters etc..... In this order: 1) Remove & empty the canister, ***important****-leave the canister bottom lid open. 2) remove the three star screws at the top of the canister. It'll take a bit of pressure to pull the top up, there's a rubber seal. When you pull it up there will be a rod running down into the canister, leave it be, just pull up the top high enough to clear out any debris. 3) Put the top back on aligning the screws, when you lower it make sure the bottom of the rod engages with the hole at the bottom center of the canister, this is why you left the bottom lid open. Put the three star screws back in. 4) Turn the canister upside down, lid open, and keeping in mind this is thin plastic, gently tug upwards on the four fins that surround the bottom rubber seal. This part is held in by friction, so work your way around the four fins gently pulling until you work the ring they're connected to free. This will give you access to the inside of the canister. 5) remove the round perforated section by tugging upwards on it, set it aside with the fin part. 6) Take the canister to a laundry tub or large sink and holding it bottom up fill it with hot/warm water. Grasping the center section shake it vigorously and turn it upside down while shaking and a bunch of sh*t will come out. Repeat several times. 7) Dry thoroughly, you might use a hairdryer held to the center tube, but only if you can switch off the heat and use air only. Make sure its 200% dry, water will kill your machine 8) clean and replace the round perforated section 9) replace the fin section, I'd suggest pulling the round rubber part off of the fin part and setting it in place on the canister first, then follow with the plastic fin part. If you don't do it this way the rubber won't seat properly and the bottom lid won't close. 10) Close the lid, replace the canister, and staaaaaart suckin like it's brand new.

Get the filter out of a dyson hoover dc 19 to clean it.


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

To remove, wash, dry and replace your DC19's washable pre-filter, please follow the steps shown in our video guide. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.


Both of DC19's filters are engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use. The post-filter does not need maintenance, and should not be washed or cleaned as this may damage the filter.

You're welcome to get in touch if you'd like further assistance or advice. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi Peter, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC19 isn't picking up as well as it should be. Have you washed the filter recently? We recommend washing it at least once every 3-6 months using cold water without detergent. Make sure the filter is completely dry before replacing it, which could take at least 24 hours:

If the filter has been washed, it's likely that there is a blockage somewhere in the floor tool, wand or hose that you may have missed. I appreciate you've already checked for this, but our support guide will walk you through the steps needed to locate and remove any obstructions: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc19t2/dc19t2/my-machine-is-not-working/check-extension-tube

If you've followed all of these steps and have not resolved the problem, please contact our experts directly so we can help. You can reach the Dyson Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How to open lower filter on dyson dc19


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC19 has two filters, both engineered to last for the lifetime of the vacuum in normal use. The pre-filter should be washed at least once every 3-6 months using cold water without detergent, as shown in the video below. Allowed at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

The post-filter located underneath the clear bin is engineered to capture microscopic allergens, and carbon from the motor. It does not need any maintenance - in fact, attempting to wash or clean the post-filter could cause damage to the vacuum not covered under guarantee. For this reason we advise against accessing or removing the post-filter.

I hope this helps, but if you have any questions about the filter, or regarding the performance of your DC19, please get in touch with our experts directly so we can provide further assistance. You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi David, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm surprised to hear you've having difficulty emptying the bin on your DC19, as this should be straightforward. It's possible the catches could be a little stiff if they haven't been opened before, but our online Support guide shows what you need to do: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc19t2/dc19t2/how-to-use-your-dyson-vacuum/emptying-the-clear-bin-step-1

Loss of suction


There should be a sponge like filter in the area of the canister and no this is NOT the HEPA filter. When you find this other filter you will want to bang it off outside and then put it back in and you should be all set.
