How do I empty dyson stowaway

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson

There are several different models (DC--) of Dyson Stowaway vacuum, and the method of emptying the clear bin after use would depend on which particular model you own.

If you own DC20 or DC21 Motorhead, the bin and cyclone pack separate so you can tip out the dust and debris

If you own DC23, the bin base opens at the push of the red release catch, dumping the dust and debris at arms' length:
I hope this helps. If you'd like any further guidance on using or maintaining your Dyson Stowaway vacuum, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

The shroud on my dc59 is full of dust is there any way of cleaning it

Hi Marian, it's Jack at Dyson.

It's normal for harmless static to cause fine dust particles to cling to parts of the cyclone pack after use. This won't affect performance as the airflow doesn't need to pass through this dust.

It's not possible to remove the mesh shroud, but you can clear any fluff or clinging debris from the shroud after removing the clear bin. In order to do this, press the red bin base release catch once to open the bin base. Then with the base still open, press the same red release catch firmly a second time to disengage the bin.


You can then use a dry cloth or soft brush to remove any debris from the fine mesh shroud. Please don't attempt to wash or submerge either the clear bin or the cyclone pack, as this could cause damage not covered under your Dyson warranty.

I hope this information is useful, but you're welcome to get in touch with our experts if you'd like further guidance. You can reach us on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How do I clean a build up of dust behind the mesh on the cyclone shroud of my dyson dc59?

Hi William, it's Jack at Dyson.

It's normal for harmless static generated in use to cause fine dust particles to cling to parts of the clear bin and cyclone pack. This will not affect performance as airflow doesn't have to pass through this dust, and it's not necessary to remove dust particles from behind the mesh shroud. When you empty the machine after use, tapping the cyclone pack gently will help dislodge any clinging particles.

You can remove any fluff or debris from the mesh shroud itself by removing the clear bin. To do this, press the red bin release catch once as if you were emptying the machine. Then with the bin base still open, press the red release catch firmly a second time to disengage the clear bin.


A soft brush or a dry cloth can then be used to remove any hair or debris from the shroud.

Aside from this, the only other maintenance needed is to wash the pre-filter at least once a month using cold water without detergent:

Always ensure the filter is completely dry before replacing it in the machine - this may take at least 24 hours.

I hope this helps, but if any further guidance is needed you're welcome to 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).

How to empty dyson

Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Emptying your unit's dust bin is crucial to maintaining your unit working efficiently and it is a very task to do. First, make sure your unit is off and unplugged before starting.

Push the release latch on the cyclone assembly towards the rear of your machine and remove the cyclone bin. Take the bin to a trash can before pressing the red button located behind the handle on the dust bin. Shake and/or tap firmly to remove all dust from inside the fine dust collector and then close the clear bin by pressing the center of the bin base.

It is highly recommended for allergy sufferers for the dust bin to be wiped with a damp cloth. For optimal performance, do not forget to wash your unit's washable filters at least once a month.

How do I open Dyson DC7 to clean filter

The only filter you can clean is in the compartment beside the dust bin, push in on the release catch to pull out the filter holder. This filter should be replaced occasionally. There is an exhaust filter under the cover the dust bin sits on. This filter should also be replaced occasionally.

Clicking sound and wont **** up dirt, says clean brushes and i did, and still doesnt work

The brush deck should raise depending on the floor surface the Roomba is cleaning. Remove the dust bin, send the Roomba on a cleaning mission and observe through the dust bin opening whether the brushes are turning.

I have a dyson dc07 bagless vacuum cleaner. How do I split the top and bottom halves of the dust collection bin? There is a lever and catch on the side, I have tried pulling and turning, but with no...

Hi at the top of the Cyclone there is a lever underneath the Handle. The Handle I am referring to says Dyson on it. Firstly you must release the Cyclone from the spine. After doing this you will be left with the Cyclone and the Cyclone Bin all in a oner.

To empty the bin you must lift the lever which is underneath the Dyson handle.

You can only seperate the bin from the cyclone whilst the bin flap is open.

Once you have opened the bin flap using the lever you can then use the lever and catch to seperate the 2 items.

My Dyson vacum's suction power apperas weaker the usual.

You might want to check three things. First, is the washable filter under the dust bin clean. Take off the dust bin, open the filter cover and check the washable filter. Wash it while you are at it, let it dry 12 hours. Next, make sure the gasket that seals the flip open door to the center of the dust bin is on correctly. Owner's manual shows the correct way and you want to be sure the ribs on the gasket are seated in the grooves on the center tube in the dust bin (this will also cause your washable filter to clog really badly if not on correctly. Third, your cyclone could be plugged with hair or something. This will happen if you pick up something wet, or damp or clean up lots of pet hair. Here's a good site on how to take your cyclone apart and clean it.

Broken dust bin

You must replace the whole bin. Not sure where you can get it but if you take it in it for repair it will cost roughly 50-60 for the part plus labor.

No suction

Roomba does much of its cleaning by the brush and roller on the bottom, but an important part is the little fan at the back of the debris bin which provides 100% of the 'suction.'
First, take off the vent cover on the back of the debris compartment and start Roomba on a mission. You will see the little turbine spin (if it's working) and probably a little dust cloud will come out.
It may not be working at best efficiency, however, because dirt gets sucked into the housing and blocks much of the air flow. Now that you know what the fan/turbine looks like (it's quite small, only the size of two stacked silver dollars), peer down into the larger opening of the debris bin and view the turbine from the other side. Chances are there's some crud stuck down there which is impeding air flow. (There's a hollow part of the turbine where the air is sucked into before being expelled out the back, that's probably filled with pet hair/dust/etc.) Clean that out using a long knife, chopsticks, or anything else that can reach down in there. Bang the dust bin down (lightly) to dislodge any more hair that's up there and continue cleaning until it's all gone.
I've had 3 Roomba's and they all get hair stuck up there. I only have to do this once a year or so (multi-cat and dog household here!) but it makes all the difference in the world.
