I am sure you figured this out by now, but in case others out there are having the same problem. It is really simple. You have to pull the stick, the wand out of the handle all the way. THen it will just come off itself. The instructions are NOT clear, so don't feel dumb!

How do i release the handle on my dc25 dyson vacuum

Hi Dan, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty releasing your DC25's wand, but this is likely to be simple to resolve. It probably just means that the hose was twisted around when you last replaced the wand on the machine - allowing the hose to unwind will free up the wand. Just follow these steps:

I'm confident this will help, but if you'd like any further guidance after you've given this a try, you can reach our experts directly by calling the Dyson Helpline on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

Wand will not pull out

Hi Colin, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC27's wand should release from the machine easily, and disengage from the body of the machine when it's fully extended. If it seems to be jammed in place, it's possible there's a blockage within the hose which is preventing it from extending.

To resolve this, open the clear U-bend and check for any obstructions.


This should help, but if you continue to have difficulty you're welcome to get in touch with the Dyson Customer Helpline for further assistance from our experts. We can help you check if the mechanism for the wand is damaged - and if a replacement part is needed, we can confirm whether your machine is covered under the Dyson warranty.

You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How do you get the extension off then its raised all the way to the top?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC25's instant-release hose and wand are designed to detach quickly and easily when you need them. There are no fiddly clips or buttons to press - when you extend the wand upwards to it's fullest extend and pull it firmly, it should separate from the main body of the vacuum:

If the wand seems jammed, or you continue to have difficulty removing it, our experts are on hand to take some further details and provide assistance. You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Wand will not release from vacum

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

As long as your DC40's wand was replaced correctly on the vacuum the last time it was used, it should lift easily away from the main body, as shown in our video guide below. There are no buttons or catches to undo:

If the wand appears to be jammed in place, we'd need to take some further details to help you resolve this issue. When you have your DC40 easily to hand, please give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

We'll look forward to speaking with you, and helping you release the wand.

Take hose off to clean

Pull out handle as usual.
Release hose from wand and handle by pressing the pair of release clips on the handle just above where the hose enters. I have to press these clips quite hard and pull quite a bit to get the hose to come free. All the above is as you would normally use the hose.
Lay hose down to rear of machine. Just between the bottom of the hose and the machine body is a small plastic tab: pull this a little away from the machine body.
Slide bottom end of hose upwards and out of the machine.

The hose can be dismantled from the plastic fittings at each end but has not been designed for the user to do so: the hose and fittings are bought as an assembly (not expensive at about GBP15).

The telescoping wand on my Dyson DC 25 will not retract back into the hose.

Hi Nina, it's Jack at Dyson.

Difficulty collapsing the wand can mean that the plastic handgrip section hasn't been correctly placed on the machine. When you replace the wand on the machine, make sure the handgrip section clips onto the main body and is down as far as it will go.

It's also a good idea to make sure that the hose isn't twisted, as a twisted hose can create resistance as you try to collapse the wand. Remove the wand again and allow the hose to untwist itself fully before attempting to replace the wand on the machine.

I'm confident these steps should resolve the issue, but if you would like some further guidance after you've given this a try, please give us a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

Hi its Darran at Dyson.

You would need to release the wand/hose assembly from the machine then slide the hose right to the bottom of the wand and press the release catch to disconnect from the wand. Then at the base of the hose you shoudl be able to un-clip the hose to remove it completely from the machine.

Full details on how to check your amchine for blockages, can be found in the Support section on our website at

How do you put the telescopic wand down? Just got a new dyson 17 and I cant use it cause I cant get the dang wand down..

make sure your handle is snapped in all the way on to the machine, that will release the clip on the hose to allow for the wand to slide in.
