Question about Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I have a dc17 that got blocked when the gasket at the bottom of the canister flipped up or was pushed up and dirt and hair went up into the cyclone part. I sprayed it with a hose and all that did was wet it down and made it smell. I tried taking it apart but was only able to remove two screws from the inside and that won't let it come apart. I also have a DC07 and it has 3 screws on top to take it apart. I have washed it several times successfully.
Can anybody tell me how to take the cyclone of the DC17 apart?
You need to "click" off the cone part it fits tight but a little pressure will pull it (no screws holding it) off revealing more screws under. The you should be able make this apart pretty easy. Top tip :- When it's in pieces put the parts in the dish washer to get all the grim off! Don't forget to remove the black gasket it doesn't like water so much :) Good luck
