SOURCE: bottom of dirt container doesn't stay closed

The catch/latch that is on the bottom of the bin button release has likely broken.  
If you take out the canister (as when you are dumping the bin), and flip it upside down and then squeeze the bin release button, you will see that it moves a rod inside the cyclone assembly.  At the end of this rod is a plastic (plastic.. redundant, as the entire Dyson is practically plastic) latch that catches onto the bin's lid and locks it in place.  A broken latch means it doesn't lock the lid in.
What you need is a replacement latch.  Note that the "Bin Release Button + Rod assembly" that are sometimes sold on ebay do *not* contain the latch at the end of the rod.  Also the bottom bin assembly does not contain the required parts.
The cyclone assembly should have the full bin release rod + latch, so if you can't find the latch, then a new cyclone assembly would work also (but will cost more, obviously).

    How to empty it


    1. Push down on carry handle and
    pull dirt container away from unit.

    2. Once it is pulled back lift it out.

    3. Hold dirt container over trash can and push down on bottom
    release lever to release debris.

    4. Close bottom cover on the dirt
    cup until it snaps shut.

    While you have the dirt container out you can also clean the Lifetime HEPA filter. It is on the top of the dirt container.

    1. Twist lid to the left to remove lid and filter from
    container

    2. Remove foam filter from dirt container and dump out
    any loose dirt. Wash the foam filter.

    3. Remove the HEPA filter by Twist filter handle to the left and
    pull out of lid. Wash the Heap filter.

    4. Once the filters are thoroughly dry (I recommend set out for 24 hours) then installer filters in lid and thread back on top of the dirt canister.

    Before replacing the dirt canister you can also clean the exhaust filter install below the dirt canister on the top vacuum cleaner head.

    1. Loosen the exhaust grille by pressing the locking tab, and
    remove it.

    2. Remove and shake out the exhaust filter and wash it.
    Note: Scented filter are not washable.

    3. Once the filters are thoroughly dry relace it and snap the
    exhaust grill into place.

    Replace the dirt container
    NOTE: Dirt container will not
    align on base if filter is not
    aligned properly.

    How do you disassemble when it's filled up so it can be emptied


    • There is a container that fills with dirt and it should should be easy to find on the body of the unit.It will probably have a little button that releases it so it can pull out and then you can dump it out. I think you will find the container and the button on the front of the machine that would be the side the t faces forward while you are using it and to access the container you must get in front of it to see the button.
    • Thank you and I hope this will help you . Olease try to remember to click on the yes button on your way out if this helped you. Thanks for using Fixya!

    I was given a filter queen majestic limited edition but have no manual, can you help


    This is a very straight forward good quality vac, with excellent filtration.
    The cannister has two large clamps to release the motor from the dust chamber. Depending onb the age you may have an LED which comes on when it is time to empty the vac. The cleanest way to empty is to leave the paper cone over the dirt and carefully tip all into a garbage bag sitting on the floor.
    You should replace the paper cone with a genuine fresh one each time you empty the container. In addition there is a paper disc inside the motor housing which you will access by removing the flat screw at the bottom of the plastic grille cone.
