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

Clean the Dyson Animal

\015 I would like to know how to clean the upper ctclone device on my dc17?\015

Answers :

It's almost impoossible to clean - I have tried a number of times - when you wash it out you can't get all of the animal hair out and now you have damp smelly hair. It really needs to be able to be opened so you can get all of the hair out. Despite what Dyson says - "I just things should work properly", it doesn't - it's primary drawback is that it is impossible to clean out.

My Dyson Animal is not picking up very well in the drive position. With the hose the pick up is still very good. I have had it for 2 yrs now with very little problems. I have cleaned out all areas etc pipes, the brush underneath and cant find any blockages. The noise of the dyson is the same as usual. Could you tell me if there is a part that it sounds like it needs?

Dyson animal loses suction when I let the handle down from the upright position to use, I've cleaned the foam filter, and the plastic filter holder and dried thoroughly, removed and cleared the right side U-bend, and the center, rear U-bend access, also made sure nothing was in the way of the beater bar.
