Question about Dyson DC08 Cylinder Bagless Canister Cyclonic Vacuum

1 Answer

Washing the cyclone

The manual says don't use water however I have done this to reduce the smell of dog (picking up dog hair). Wondering if using water may actually lead to blocking of the small tubes in the cyclone? Can't see any other way to clean this area except washing. Any ideas? No screws to pull it apart! John

Our vacuum smells of dog when in use. We have clean out all the filters but it still smells horrible. Any suggestions?


Hi there,

I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulties with your DC14 Animal. You may want to take a look at the page linked below to make sure you've washed the filter correctly - this should be done at least once every 3-6 months. Use cold water without detergent, and allow up to 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it.

http://www.dyson.com/support/help.asp?article=1324&product=DC14-ANIMAL_US


You can also wash the clear bin when separated from the cyclone pack - however, the cyclone pack must never be washed or submerged in water. Make sure the clear bin is totally dry before reassembling the cyclone assembly.

If you need any further help or advice about using or maintaining your Dyson cleaner, please call us free on 08002980298 (UK), or 1866MYDYSON (US) - one of our experts will be happy to provide the assistance you need.

Kind regards,

Not picking up dog hair


Miele pull-along is the best at this.  Cyclonic is great for dust.  I have both.

My filter is always full of dog hair on my animal. What is causing this. I have to clean the filter each week . Dirt seems to always be trapped in the filter also.


I have same cyclonic as you.  I also have a Miele Pull-along.  I use the cyclonic for fine dust after picking up the hairs with the Miele.  

Much quicker in the long run.  

Otherwise I would waste a lot of time cleaning out the Dysan Cyclonic.

My wind tunnel had a lot of dog hair at the intake hole from my renter that used it. I was able to remove it, but is it possible there is hair up inside beyond the hole & how would I remove it? it is...


I have an upright Dyson Cyclonic.  Because I have dogs, I also have a Miele Pull-along.  I use the cyclonic for fine dust after picking up the hairs with the Miele.  

Much quicker in the long run.  

Otherwise I would waste a lot of time cleaning out the Dysan Cyclonic airways.  I usually use long nose pliers to get the ball out and then I use my Miele to **** the rest out of the Dysans airways!!!

HOW DO I DISMANTLE THE ROOT CYLONE ON A DYSON DC17 ANIMAL


The Cyclone Cylinder needs to be cleaned with hot water poured over the cyclinder and into the cylinder until the water is clear. Afterwards, shake the cylinder several times to get the excess water out. Then let the cylinder dry out for at least two days along with the filter. When my DC17 began to smell like a dirty dog, I discovered that the cylinder had a ton of hair inside it. It took quite awhile to get all of it out. Be patient. Now I know to clean my Dyson every month; otherwise, it will emit a doggy odor.
