Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Is there only one filter that needs to be cleaned on the DC17 Animal Bagless upright cyclonic vacuum? I clean the canister all the time but I think there is at least one more filter to clean. I lost my manual so I can't look this up.

Vacuum works but doesn't pickup dirt


there is a clog. check the hose, and the entry to the canister, check the holes inside the canister and check / clean your filter. also remove any threads/ animal hair from the brush so i can freely grab the carpet :)

My Dyson D17 won't work while upright.


check and make sure you have the gasket installed correctly that goes on the center of the cyclone and seals against the canister trap door. If this is backwards, you can lose a lot of suction and it will plug your permanent filter quickly.

OUR DYSON DC 17 ANIMAL HAS A SMELL OF ABOUT 50 DOGS THAT HAVEN'T HAD BATHS FOR A YEAR.. WE HAVE TWO DOGS IN THE HOUSE AND THEY ARE KEPT CLEAN. WE'VE WASHED THE CANISTER, THE FILTER,BRUSHED OUT THE HOSES.....


Try buying "Citronella" from an essential oils dealer (maybe eBay?) Apply 6-12 drops on the paper filter element...you'll LOVE the smell.
P.S.
Haven't you asked this question before?

How do you clean out the filters on the DC17?


You only have to wash the filter that is underneath the canister - take it out, wash it in cold water and leave it out to dry for at least 24 hours. This filter is blue (or gray when it is dirty) and has the number "6" on it.

The other filter in the machine is a lifetime filter and if you wash it you will damage it and you'll have to buy a new one.

Cleaning the filter on the Dyson DC17


The fliter is under the canister. Take it off as if going to empty the dirt out. There is a cap that lifts up to clean the filter. I washed mine and let it dry (it took almost 3 days) before replacing it.
