Having problems with your Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?

8 holes in root cyclone are clogged

\015 Did you find a way to fix this yet? I ran water thru the root cyclone unit and it's still clogged with pet hair\015

Answers :

There is no real solution other than to call Dyson provided still under warranty.

IMHO, DC17 Animal has a flawed design with the sealed canister (at\015\012least as purchased in December 2006 purpotedly has been corrected at\015\012this time).
\015\012
\015\012The rubber gasket (where you close the bin at the bottom) is so\015\012delicate, that even the routine maintenance of emptying the bin can\015\012dislodge it (or even crimp it) so that debris (carpet lint, pet hair,\015\012etc) enters the cyclone itself eventually clogging it.
\015\012
After going throught their recommended solution on their web site without fixing the problem, it was a typical customer service experience on calling. But with persistence\015\012in explaining their faulty design to them (particularly with regard to\015\012the fact that it's caused by routine maintenance), they'll break down\015\012and send you a new cylone unit at no charge - from there on out ensure that the\015\012thing is sealed after emptying or performing normal maintenance.
\015\012
\015\012Although the original question is somewhat dated, hopefully this will save others some aggravation in dealing with the problem.

The soap dispenser on my 2X is not dispensing. I wrote with this initial problem and received a reply. We did everything recommended to find a clog. To begin with, we poked holes thru the little holes on the underside with a toothpick. Next we took the machine all apart as directed and cleaned out anything that had accumulated (such as pet hair). Eventually we emptied out the soap dispenser, filled it with a hot salt water solution and let it sit for 10 min. I ran three tanks of hot water

Hi. We've got a Dyson DC17 "Animal". It's clogged, and we are unable to separate the purple cyclone cap from the main cyclone body to get to the problem. We've heard of 4 torx screws that take some interesting tactics to access. I've been through this thing with a flashlight, and torx tools for a protracted period, and even after removing the torx screws was unable to ultimately separate the two pieces (main body from purple cap assembly). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx -

Lately we've been having plumbing problems to where our washing machine floods up our bath tub and toilet. And it happens while we have the washing machine on of course. Another problem is that whenever we are taking a shower our tub starts to clog up and water starts pouring out from the bottom of our toilet. We had a plumber come by to root out our pipes just last week and it was fine for about 3 days. And now the problem is back and driving me crazy. WHAT IS WRONG AND HOW CAN I FIX IT??
