Question about Dyson DC25 Vacuum

Open Question

My dyson dc25 has a whistling noise after I cleaned the filters both in the canister and in the ball. It seems like a restriction by the sound and the lack of suction though it feels good at the wand but it doesn't pick up very well at all. I have taken everything apart and verified that there is no restriction in any hose. Any help would be appreciated.

SOURCE: lack of suction in hose

That popping sound is the bleed valve activating - it indicates that there is a blockage in the machine somewhere, probably in the wand if you're saying that there is no suction in the wand.

- Take the wand off the back of the machine - press the two gray buttons to separate it from the hose - hold the wand in the air and look through it - if you can't see the light coming through the other side there's a blockage in the wand - taka a long object like a meytal hanger and remove the blockage.

If that's not the problem, call the Dyson helpline for further troubleshooting, they know what they're doing.

SOURCE: No suction on wand of Dyson DC14 Animal

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

It sounds as though the wand handle is blocked. To check this, remove the wand/hose from the machine as if you were going to use it to vacuum the stairs. Switch the machine on and test the suction at the top of the wand handle with your hand. If the suction from the wand is poor, remove the wand from the hose and test the suction again from the top of the hose. If the suction here is good, then you know the wand handle is blocked. If the suction is poor at the hose, you can remove the hose from the machine and clear any blockages here.

For the full blockage procedure please visit the support section on our website at www.dyson.com.

Kind regards

SOURCE: no suction on dyson dc24 ball

Well i just fixed my Dyson Ball with the same problem you have. My wife and i found out it was a crumpled receipt in the lower section of the hose at the upright/handheld pivot #3 in diagram and it was catching cat hair and other things. I began by removing the canister and turned on the vacuum to see if the direct access to the fan had suction. Then i moved to #5; i reattached the canister and threw in some cat hair into it from the bottom. i turned on the vaccum to see if it spinned around; it didnt. I then moved to #4, i removed the head and then turned on the vaccum to see if maybe the head had a leak at the top connecter; as i predicted the strength was minimal. I then worked my way to #1 to see if the strength was the same or if there was a difference. no difference for us. Well then it must be #3.. of course the last one i checked. I used a small flashlight and peared in and i didnt see anything... i then used a coathanger very softly as to not puncture the hose. i then noticed some hair being pushed out but the main culprit wasnt showing. my wife gave me needle nose pliers and i pried the hose off of the top connection in #3; so i could get a better look; you may be able to push it off with your hands. and viola! a crumpled reciept for 3 Monster energy drinks.... the same ones....i drink... oops!... hopes this helps. just go through it step by step. youll know its working once stuff begins to spin in the canister. almost regretted throwing that dyson registry junk away.

After cleaning my filters, the filter in the ball keeps snaping out when I turn on my vacuum


Hi Betsy, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC25's HEPA post filter doesn't seem to be staying in place. Once it's removed, it's important to replace it firmly, pushing it into place until you hear a click from the red locking catch:


If you're confident you've replaced the HEPA post filter securely, but it seems to be coming loose when you switch the vacuum on, please get in touch with the Dyson Customer Helpline 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).

Ball makes a clicking noise every 0.25 metres. Please help


Please read this answer all the way through there is something that may be relevant (strike out 'important') at the end !

Maybe it's this
"clip that holds the filter in place and the locating lug of the access flap to gently rub together as the ball rotates and create a slight clicking noise as the appliance is moved around (though is not routinely noticed due to the motor noise)"
(from Fully Cleaned Serviced Refurbished Dyson DC25 Animal Ball Vacuum Cleaner )
stop press - I just saw this - if you do not have proper Dyson brand HEPA filters - see end of answer - you may get a loud clicking sound....
The manual tells you about removal and cleaning HEPA filter - the All floors version has one as well)
Otherwise I can only refer to Dyson support, there are various ways of contacting them given at the top right of this webpage Support forDC25 Multi Floor
(the user guide manual is downloadable from this webpage)
Sounds to me as if maybe there is an irregularity on the ball that is contacting the body/ball housing every time the ball does round....unfortunately this makes the ball diameter ~8cm which too small.

The ball on my Dyson DC25 doesn't turn: it's as if it's stuck . How do I release it?


Make sure the filter cover is on properly. If you can't see what is restricting the ball from turning. You might have to take it to a Dyson service center.

There are two filters that are washable. One is in the top of the dust bin and the other is in the ball assembly.

I cleaned the filters on my dc 25, after cleaning it started to make a whistle noise. Opened the ball will running and touched the filter and noise stopped. Do I need to replace filter or rubber gasket...


You are hearing the air whistling past the gasket. Touching it may make it come and go. It is a small air leak bypassing the filter. It is more of a nuisance than anything. A bit of fine dust may be getting past the filter too so It's best to try to adjust it so it does not make the noise. If your filter was still wet or is clogged it will cause a restriction which makes it more likely for the air to try to get past the filter because it is having a hard time going through the filter.

Filter whistle noise


Hi Basil,

I am sorry to hear your machine is emitting a high pitched sound. Based on the details you provided the problem may be isolated to the post motor filter, if so a new filter will be needed. We would like to help with this. Please contact our Helpline to speak with an expert:

Whistle noise from filter


Try moving the filter a little while it is running. This is a common problem caused by the air bypassing the filter. The more clogged the filter is the more it will whistle but sometimes it will whistle with a new filter. Sometimes you may get it stopped for a while but then it will start up again or come and go.

Whistling noise on dc25 Animal


there may be a small cut in the tube or there is something stuck restricting the suction check all hoses

My DC25 Animal is making a howling, whistling noise. Primarily when turning off (winding down to shut off)


if it started after you cleaned the filters, it is because when you smack the filter that is in the ball like they tell you to, it pushes the gasket in so air can sneak past it. take it back out and pull the rubber gasket away from the filter so there is about 1/16-1/8" away all the way around, then put it back in. it will seal it and stop.
