I have cleaned mine like this for 3 years, about once a year. Just to be safe I let mine dry for a couple of days!!! It has never been a problem for me! I would say just be SURE it is dry…. It is all plastic in there, so there is no reason not to clean it. They have to use water when they refurbish them. Thanks, after owning my Dyson for almost 5 years I finally cleaned it.
I was scared being it was so expensive to try to mess around with it- but it was pretty easy. My filter stated not to put under water, so I did not. I too am bookmarking this site so I can give my dyson animal a bath after i get done cleaning the carpets! Thanks for the reminder! I think not — I do it myself! Water at least keeps the dust in the air to a minimum. I make sure that I let all of the parts air dry on a towel in my laundry room for a few days before I put it back together.
It works just like new every time. I love my Dyson! Cleaning the your Duson is a great idea but do not be tempted to clean the hose calse getting that to dry takes days if not weeks and then its still not dry enough.
Apparently with my Dyson there is a bar that goes all the way down which connects to a release for the trap door. I now cannot get it open to empty it. Any one have any suggestions? The cleaning was great and it works like new, but cant empty now, suggestions? Okay- Update- I read on another site to fix this- remove the top via unscrewing the top with a screw driver pull the lid off and reset the "trapbar" back into place.
It is not easy as you have to match up the screw holes as well as he bar at the same time which you cannot see very well. Have to go with more of a feel. Overall very happy with the clean out, works much better. Cleaning my dyson today. So happy! Thank you! Just a quick question. You mention to put the attachments in the dishwasher.
Just wanting to know if it truly is safe to throw in there or not. Thanks again! Love our Dyson, and your great idea to clean it. Thanks for the info, I usually use an air compressor but I think I will do this every other time. Heads up though, had my Dyson in for a repair and they said NOT to get the yellow filter holder wet.
They said just clean the foam filter it holds. The filter says to just wash it with cold water running through which I do I also do the filter holder and it works perfect!!! Anna I think it is wonderful that you are letting people know how to do this.. FYI, Dyson recommends cleaning your machine once a month. My DC 33 recommends washing the filters every 3 months — oops!
Oh no the pictures are gone! I had pinned this to clean my vacuum and when I came back to actually do it, the pictures were gone. They were so helpful. Anyway you can put them back? Came here from Pinterest… are there supposed to be pictures in the post? The problem was completely on my end. My computer was being a snot!
I restarted and the pics are showing up just fine, now. I talked to my IT lady and she fixed the picture problem. Thank you for letting me know! Thank you for the great detailed info and pics! I am looking to find a replacement while I wait for all the parts to dry.
Anyone know of major chains that carry these? Just cleaned mine, followed these instructions. Looks good so far! Although I must have a different model because not everything coordinated. I was disgusted at how much dirt was built up in the cyclone! Hoping it works like new! I did this with my six year old purple Dyson last year.
Rinsed and cleaned both the clear cylinder as well as the cyclone part and was amazed at all the gunk that came out! I thought I had let it dry very thoroughly, but it started to stink a very musty, mildewy smell. After a while, that seemed to go away, though, so perhaps it just needed more time to dry. If it smells musty you can always add a little baking soda to the canister, that should clear it up! Thank you so much for this!
I had no idea it could be cleaned this thoroughly. Thanks for knocking some sense into me and helping those of us who are less technically inclined! I have had my dyson for years and never even thought to do this until I saw your pin on pinterest. The filter was in desperate need of a washing. I have an older model so things are slightly different but I just googled the manual online.
Thanks so much for the info. What abouth cleaning the animal dyson. No filter up top. How do we get water into it to clean. I have the Animal Dyson and clean it pretty much the same way. The clear canister comes apart at the top, there are little tabs that hold it in place and the filter is on the bottom part of the vacuum. The filter actually shows a faucet with water on it. I run water in the cyclone part and just rinse it around several times and then let it dry for several days.
Hope this helps. OMG, thanks so much for this post. I found you on Pinterest after doing a search on Dyson. Well, after cleaning out the lint trap in my dryer and accidentally sucking up a few dryer sheets, I thought it was broken. It started smelling like it was on fire and turned itself off. Found the culprits 2 dryer sheets, a ballpoint pen, some Scotch tape, and lots of hair and dust. I did the whole cleaning as you instruct above and it worked like a charm.
Thanks for saving me tons of money and better yet, having to explain to my mom why it was broken! I cleaned my dyson a few weeks ago. Took the canister apart did all of the above except the gray piece that has the holes…I called Dyson to check to see if its okay to clean with water. They told me its not a good idea to do that to take it outside and use an air compresser to blow out the dirt…which I did.
I was very shocked at how much dirt…and I mean baby fine baby powder looking dirt came out. Going to be doing that more frequently. I use canned air and a baby bottle brush to clean out my canister. I have had my Dyson for about 3 years, but have lived in an apartment the whole time.
It never looked very dirty so I never really worried about thoroughly cleaning the whole thing. Well after finding your amazing blog and using many of your tips, I decided to clean the Dyson. This chore will surely be added to my list! Thanks for the step by step tips!! Thanks for sharing! Have you guys tried a mixture of vinegar and water to help deodorize? Just curious cause because I have dogs and pet odor is the biggest issue with the vacuum. Also a tip to remove the hair…an old style barbers comb like the ones guys used to carry in their pockets works great.
I decided to do the same for a good thorough cleaning…OMG how nasty it was! Thanks for the info. I did all this and am still getting a funky smell from mine. Any ideas? My dog puked on the carpet a month or two ago and after I cleaned it up and used carpet cleaner on it, I vacuumed.
Since then, that lovely smells come back every time I vacuum. I tried baking soda, emptying a lavender sachet and vacuuming it up, sprinkling with essential oil before vacuuming. All are only temporary solutions. Did you take your vacuum apart and clean it per the instructions?
The only other thing I would suggest is to purchase a new hose. How do i get the brush off? I can get the three screws off to get to the brush but there is a black rubber belt securing it.. I want to take the brush off and clean it. Good luck! Hey Anna, I inherited a Dyson from my grandpa. I really wanted it cleaned before it comes in my house.
So today is the day. Thanks for the great tutorial. Dyson all clean! Thanks for the help! I love it! I Like this! I have always taken mine apart and usually just wiped it out or blown it out with an air compressor, do wash the filters! I have had my Dyson for about 14 years. Great machines! This is how I cleaned my Dyson for years…until it started smelling of mold. I called Dyson and they said under no circumstances should you clean the canister with water because regardless of how long you dry it out, water still stays trapped and like mine, begins to mold and smell.
They had to send me another canister and specifically said to NOT clean it with water, otherwise my warranty would be voided, as directions and cleaning instructions say not to use water. They said the best way to clean the canister is to use an air compressor and blow all the dust and particles out. Would hate for someone to use this method and ruin an expensive vacuum. Thank you for this.
I have the D24 and I Just cleaned it up. I had even looked online and everything. But you covered it here. My pet dyson stunk bad! It was either throw out or try anything. This worked be Beautifully. Thank you. I found your tutorial through Pinterest. I was a little scared by some of the comments that said not to clean the canister with water but I gave it a go. To be sure I did let my parts dry for a couple of days in the sun then left them on the dish drainer for a few more days. It is just like having my brand new Dyson back!!!
So amazing! Thank you so much, I will be doing this every six months at least! Never thought of washing it, I was too afraid the water would damage the unit. I think I may go that route. I did it and thanks to you it is like brand new! I laid it out in my laundry room that is about 80 degrees year around and it was all dry in 24 hours! Your photos and writing style are terrific and I look forward to learning more tips and tricks from you! Can you clean out the tube the attachments hook to?
Mine is sticking quite a bit and is difficult to get pulled out when needing to use it. Am wondering if sticking a hair dryer into the hose to dry it would work? Better than buying a new hose….? Just followed your instructions for cleaning my Dyson, I have a different model, but it was all basically the same. I let everything dry out for a week, wanted to make extra sure that it was all dry.
Anyone else have this problem?? I hate to be the one to tell you, but using soap on a Dyson voids the warranty…I found this out the hard way….. Mine started overheating after only 2 years, called the customer service and they asked how I cleaned it, I explained and they told me where I could get it repaired, but the warranty is void because I cleaned it with soapy water……sorry.
I cleaned my Dyson DC14? Wow, it was dirty! I usually use an air duster to blow it clean but hate breathing in all of that dust. I have left the cyclone part outside to air dry. I turn it upside down twice a day to ensure that it is drying completely. I will update soon. Thank you!!!!!
I agree on cleaning the things we clean with, lol. I guess this only works if it happened on a hard floor, lol The flour clogged my filter. So I tried to clean it with water…. I was so thrilled when I saw this!! What a great tutorial, but would this work for the older model?
I cleaned my 4 yr. Poor fella was smelling really foul. Will give it a couple of days for the cyclone to dry out completely. Thank you for this tutorial! I just cleaned out my Dyson for the first time. That was very traumatizing!!! Thank you for the tips. Hello there Anna. I can still hear a few droplets of water inside the canister and I plan on giving it 5 days to dry out, do you think that is feasible?
Thanks SO much! Even worse than flour, I swear! Kindest, Meagan. I would recommend putting it in a small room with a space heater. It needs to have dry, warm temps to dry all the way and not get damp and mildewy inside. Anna, I have one additional question about cleaning my Dyson.
The brush part is particularly dirty. It looks like someone cleaned up something wet or damp. I have spent a good amount of time cutting the strings and cleaning as best I could the brushes, but there is some real dirt caked on it. Can it be soaked in water or water with a little Dawn? As long as you take it all the way off the vacuum you can soak it. The funny thing is that almost 7 years of owning it and not cleaning it, but it still works just like the day I bought it.
Says something for Dyson! Off to go give my baby or, as my dog thinks of it, the Yellow Machine of Death a good cleaning! I just washed my dyson, Shame on me lol. Its was major gross inside. So glad i found you Anna. I had one of his vacs in the UK and when i moved to USA one of the first things i did was go and get another one. Thank you Anna for the great clean vac lol. I would imagine it would be about the same thing. A friend gave me this link and I tried your step by step guide today.
I have come as far as cleaning out the filters and will do the traps later today. Thanks for the pictures as I would have been totally lost without them. A Dyson is a science in itself. Hi Anna, Happy New Year to you and your family. Any ideas how best we can rid the Dyson of this smell. Old fashioned vacuum cleaners used to enable you to put fresheners in them, but not Dyson.
Any tips that you can offer would be greatly received. Regards, Simon. When my Dyson smells between cleanings I put vacuum beads in the canister. It helps make it smell fresh. I think you have to take it to the professionals to have that filter cleaned.
The reason they say that is if there is too much crud inside it will turn into a cement like substance and clog it up. Use compressed air from an air compressor, not a silly can of air. I can spend over a minuite blowing it untill the dust stops comming out. Thank you so much for this tutorial! I was flabbergasted when I say this on Pinterest!
I would have never, and I do mean never thought I could use water on the middle portion too scared I would ruin my vacuum. Thank you for the post, I am trying this today! I actually do this with my Hoover WindTunnel. The parts are very similar. I do it every couple months or so. I bump mine on the garbage can or use and old brush to clean out the little holes, after each use.
I cleaned my Dyson using this blog. While it was disgustingly dirty, it is now clean and shiny. And working better than ever. I had vacuumed my living room rug just before I cleaned the vacuum. After it had completely dried, I reassembled it and vacuumed the rug again. When I emptied the canister, it was almost full! Thanks so much for the tips. Thank you for this!
I watched my Dyson suck up a felt catnip mouse from about 4 feet away once. I cleaned my vacume like this for almost 5 years, but started noticing a smell that would come back almost Immedietly after cleaning. The lady was nice enough and send me a new canister just before my warranty ran out and told me to only clean it with air, like from an air compressor. I had the same thing happen to me and I cleaned my vacuum this way for years. The smell would not go away, no matter how long I left the parts to dry.
I called Dyson and the customer service representative was extremely nice and helpful, but said the Dyson canister should never be rinsed with water and in doing so, the warranty would be voided. She did send another canister with specific instructions to use an air compressor or some other form of compressed air to blow the dirt and dust out of the canister.
Hi, Anna, I have rings in the toilets that I can not get out. Any suggestions? Thank you, Carol. I recommend using Bar Keepers Friend, a good sponge I love the yellow and green Scotch-Brite ones and some elbow grease.
That will get the rings out and then make them easier to maintain. Thanks for the information. Cleaning those will be at the top of my list for this weekend. Just brilliant. I have also been cleaning my Dyson the same way. But I do one more thing. I remove the screws that are visible underneath the top filter in order to get at the grunge on the inside. Gets pretty bad sometimes. I just wanted to say thank you!
I use an air compressor to blow mine out. Especially down the hose. Mine likes to clog up so I make sure to blow that out too. I have long hair so I also have to cut hair off the beater bar, lol. Thanks again Anna for the tutorial and to all of your posters for the additional tips! This tutorial is absolutely amazing I just got done cleaning our dyson and I was quite shocked how dirty some of the inside parts were.
Thank you so much for this very helpful cleaning tip! I put the filters in my dehydrator after I washed them…I even put the smaller traps on a tray…They are dry in only a couple of hours…. No smell.. Even after many years…I live in the south where its humid also…. I know not everyone has a dehydrator but if so its another use for it…. Thank you so much! This will be very helpful! Thank You very much for the pics on a Dyson. My wife took ours apart to get the gunk out of the roller.
When she tried to to remove the roller she did not see how it came out. Looking at the pics on your how to clean a Dyson. I was able to reaseamble it. Thank You. I look forward to getting at this sometime this week! Thanks for sharing so detailed a post.
And I have a small aot. I use it even more when I care for my sisters parrot in the summer. I never though about all the other area to check though. I want to so bad, but my fear of ruining it is stopping me. Thank you for this wonderful site, I will trust anything you say. Thanks Ronda. I would follow the same instructions and read the comments from my other readers with Dyson Animals, for any additional tips. This made cleaning my Dyson soooo easy! Hi Anna — I was wondering if you have more specific tips for cleaning the roller brush i.
NOW, I can do it myself.. Has anyone ever rinsed out their dyson animal dc07? I have seen people rinse out out her dysons but the animal dc07 s top does not come off like you see this one do. I was wondering the same thing. I was just wondering where the motor is on the dyson. The rest is screws. Do I take the screws out also? This has been a chore for me, trying to get the brush part cleaned. Dear Anna thank you for your easy to follow guide on how to clean a Dyson, I have managed to dismantle it before but never knew you could actually wash the inner cylinder, mine was caked with hair and dust as I have two dogs, now the Dyson looks like new and am just waiting to dry it out, many thanks, Margaret.
Hi Anna, I just cleaned my Dyson for the first time. It is getting a thorough cleaning right now. Thank you SO much for this great information! And the traps….. Hey, so I know that this is an old post, but I was wondering if you know how to get to the engine of the Dyson DC17, or know of any resource that will show us how? I was so excited about my Dyson I brought it to work for my boss to try. I did get my vacuum back after I let her use it for an extra week in a half..
The suction was so strong it snapped my phone charger cord in half. I could not believe my eyes.. One of the best purchases ever! Thank you Dyson.. I hope this gets rid of the nasty smell it gives off when we run it! Have had mine for at least 7years! Thanks for this blog! Awesome find!!! Hi Anna My son broke a bottle of olive oil and thought it wise to vacuum up the glass and oil with our dyson: is there any hope of cleaning it out or should I cut my losses and buy another one?
I am going to wash out the bits I can following your instructions but the oil is in everything! Since I found your instructions on how to clean a Dyson, have never tried any other method. It works like a charm. This is a very good suggestion that you make in the first instance; a fresh smelling air exhaust driven out of the machine after whirling around, and through, a clothes dryer sheet is what I have always used in my Dyson.
There have been times I have kept back a used sheet, and this actually works as effectively too. Another way I have tried is to use herb pouches, and such, but a sheet with a nice scent is the simplest way for my liking. BTW; full time carer here, hence a male who actually does the housework. Thanks for the instructions on the vacuum. I have an old one, second hand. Problem is first owner had pets and it has a doggy smell. After I clean it, is there a way to leave some type of air freshener in it to improve the smell ie fabric softener sheets that wont hurt the machine?
PS, funds are limited. I would sprinkle baking soda on the inside of the vacuum tank. If you have any essential oils you could put a few drops into the baking soda, shake it up and then sprinkle it in the vacuum. The oils will make the vacuum smell good and the baking soda will get rid of the stink.
Thanks for the awesome step by step instructions. These tips are so helpful! I know this was posted a long time ago, but I came across this pin on Pinterest and just wanted to tell you, thanks so much Anna! In the past I always just cleaned the filter and the roller. Can you take apart all day sons like this? Even the dc I was worried about getting water in the part inside the canister.
Wanted to advise everyone that dyson does NOT suggest running water through the cyclone part. They specifically say that there are components inside that are not supposed to get wet. Yea, asked dyson about that. They say that some people have tried to run water thru their dyson after removing just the filter.
Ok to take apart and remove all the parts to wash but not when it is totally hooked up. I also like to run a dryer sheet around my clear canister to keep static electricity down so tht the hair comes out easier particularly during winter. Hi Anna, I have Dyson dc 14 and frame tube is broken so how do i take it a part and is it replaceable or not? Pls reply me with your answer. I always wondered how to clean my dyson,i always have my husband take the air compressor and blow it out,good to know.
My husband gaffer taped my Dyson to his orbital sander so it was all but ruined! He was sanding my daughters floor. This tute has resurrected it. What a brilliant post! Loved it and saved it for future purposes. I love my dyson, like you and enjoyed cleaning it out today. Thanks for sharing. I have a different version but I think this will be helpful too — Loving my Dyson so far!
I have cleaned my Dyson and after removing the brush bar, cleaning it and reassembly the brush bar now does not rotate, no matter what I do. Please HELP!!!!!!!!! Maybe try calling Dyson or take it to a local vacuum shop to have them look at it. Just take it back apart and put back together based on directions you find. Good luck. Nice post….. Buy a compressor.. Take the vacuum into the garage and blow it out near an open door. You can clean the whole vacuum in 5 mins.. No more waiting for parts to dry..
The vacuum is ready to be used right away. PS to clean the brush attachment just vacuum it with the suction hose while pulling out the debris. Fast and easy…. Anna I took my Dyson DC 25 apart and cleaned all the filters I have never cleaned the one in the ball? What do you think the problem is. Thanks Kathy. I just took the filter out of my Dyson ball. Step 9: Refitting the Large Brush Bar Slide the large brush bar back onto the floor tool while the end cap is in the open position.
Step Locking the End Cap Using the coin, fasten the end cap by turning it clockwise and ensure that it is fully turned. Check that the baseplate and brush bar is secure, and then place the floorhead back onto the wand. Step 2: Unlocking the End Cap Turn the Soft roller floor tool upside down, so the underside of the floor tool is facing you.
Then, use a coin to unlock the fastener, which is marked with a padlock. Step 3: Removing the Brush Bar Rotate the end cap to the open position, and then gently slide the brush bar away from the floorhead. You can then remove the end cap. Step 5: Drying the Brush Bar Standing the brush bar upright, leave it to dry for at least 24 hours.
Bear in mind that it could take longer for it to finish drying. Step 1: Removing the Bin In order to release the clear bin from the cyclone, you need to push the red button next to it in order to open the base of the bin. Press it a second time to release the clear bin from the main body. Remove it carefully. Step 2: Cleaning the Clear Bin You should only use a damp cloth to clean the inside. Make sure it is not too wet, and gently scrub the interior. Step 3: Cleaning the Shroud Take the dusting brush on the combination tool and use it to gently remove lint and dust.
Step 4: Refit the Bin Once the bin is completely dry, push it up and into the main body of the vacuum cleaner. Once you hear it click into place, the task is done. Be careful not to press the trigger while you are doing so.
Step 2: Washing the Filter Wash the outside of the filter by holding it under cold running water until it is clear instead of murky. Step 1: Removing the Tool Disconnect the Motorised floor tool from the wand by pressing the release button. Take a coin and use it to unlock the fastener, which is marked with a padlock.
Step 3: Removing the Large Brush Bar Once the end cap is in the open position, gently slide the large brush bar away from the cleaner head, then remove the end cap from it. Step 4: Removing the Small Brush Bar Lift the small brush bar out of the octagonal end and away from the floor tool.
Step 5: Washing the Brush Bar Hold each of the brush bars under running water and gently rub it to remove any lint or dirt. Step 6: Drying the Brush Bar Stand each of the brush bars upright and leave them both to dry for at least 24 hours until they are bone dry. Step 7: Refitting the Small Brush Bar Once they are completely dry, you must replace the small brush bar before the large one. Insert the round end of the bar into place, and then push down the octagonal end until it clicks into place.
Step 8: Refitting the End Cap Now, you can reattach the end cap to the brush bar. Step Locking the End Cap Grab the coin again and fasten the cap by turning it clockwise. Ensure that it is fully turned, and both the baseplate and brush bar are secure. Then, put the motorised tool back onto the wand. Remove the filter by lifting it out of the top of the machine.
Step 2: Washing the Filter Use cold water to wash the filter by running it over the outside until the water is clear. Squeeze and twist the filter with both hands to remove any excess water. Step 4: Replacing the Filter Place the dry filter back into the top of the machine, make sure it is sealed properly, and you are good to go. Step 2: Unlocking the End Cap Place the floorhead upside down so that the underside is facing you. Then, take a coin and unlock the fastener that is marked with a padlock.
Step 3: Removing the Large Brush Bar Rotate the end cap to the open position, then gently slide the large brush bar away from the cleaner head. Remove the end cap from the brush bar. Step 4: Removing the Small Brush Bar Lift the small brush bar away from the octagonal end and pull it out of the floor tool.
Step 6: Drying the Brush Bar Stand each of the brush bars upright and leave them both to dry for at least 24 hours or longer if needed. The filters are essential in this respect, but keeping the rest of it clean is also beneficial. Apart from the above, nobody likes a Dyson that smells, this can be fairly common, especially if you own pets. This can leave your Dyson smelling like dog, so follow our instructions and get your Dyson smelling nice again.

We suggest deep cleaning your vacuum once every months. It will both elongate the life of your Dyson vacuum , as well as make sure that your carpeting is getting properly cleaned. Having any part of the cyclone clogged will not allow proper air circulation, and will, in turn, not allow the maximum amount of suction for your flooring.
Let us help you be the best version of yourself you can be! Photo Credits: The Memoirs of Megan. This is a great, great article and should really help people extend the life of their Dyson vacuum. The photos are really helpful and the step by step instructions make the job much easier — Thank you Daily Mom!! This is the part of my vac that gets the dirtiest. Thanks for your help. Hi Gail! There is a red button on back of your cannister that will take the shell off.
Is that what you are referring to? I really appreciate this info very helpful. I do have one question on how to clean the extension hose? I think I would try to stick something through it, then use the air compressor to blow it out more. The extension hose will come off the expandable part. Thanks for the tips!
I never really thought about taking it all apart like that, so I will definitely give it a try! We have 3 girls in our house, and all of our hair is pretty long. Any tips or suggestions to make this quicker, or better yet, not happen at all?? LuAnn, Sorry, no tips for prevention. I use scissors or a sharp pocket knife to cut mine faster. Hi LuAnn R. This is painful when hair tangles around the brushes but I use a razor blade mostly and just have scissors on standby.
If you go along with your razor blade and cut all the hair, the pulling out of the hair is easy. That thing can be removed. Or at least it can on mine. Saves a lot of time cleaning it. Basically just flip the vacuum over and you will see plastic fasteners on the bottom plate. About quarter sized with a slit in the middle. There may be up to a few depending on model. Use a wide flat head screwdriver, coin nickels work good , whatever works for you..
I do believe some models have a belt on the bar. You just slide it off. This allows you to easily clean it over a garbage can. I personally use a seam ripper or letter opener and run it down the bar a couple times until all the stuff is cut. Then just pull all the hair off. Hi Christina! I touched on taking the roller out under step 3, but I love the suggestion of using a seam ripper! Great tip! Thanks for commenting. I was about to start hunting for a new Dyson mine is 5 years old.
I followed your instructions yesterday and today, it works like new! Lorien, I also take credit cards. I have a Dyson with the ball, and there is also a filter in the ball part that can be pulled out and cleaned! Just recline the vacuum part all the way, make sure the opening for the ball part is at the top, and press the button to open it up! I have had the Dyson Animal for several years, when I got mine the sales person told me to take it outside every so often and take it apart and blow it out with the air compressor, my husband does this for me no less then once a month.
I got an extra filer off of Amazon so if needed I can wash one and let it air dry and pop my extra in. My Dyson runs like new… so easy and takes no time at all to do. I have a question about the inside part on step 4. If you turn it over mine gets so dirty inside how do you clean this short of using a baby bottle brush? I love the Dyson but man this is the only issue that makes mine lag and not such up.
Nikki, I personally use an air compressor that is fairly high powered and so I blow the air up the inside. I know of other sites that suggest running the entire part under warm water, however, when I contacted Dyson to confirm that, they specifically told me not to get it wet, and that it voids any warranty. Good luck! I just purchased my first Dyson DC65 Animal. Appreciate your instructive steps on routine maintenance.
What type of high powered compressor would you recommend? The linked one is the one I use- so I recommend that brand highly! What air compressor do you have? Thank you! Good Tip! That one also needs to be cleaned to replaced periodically. BJ, If you have the Dyson Ball vacuum, there is indeed a second filter. Thanks for commenting for people to remember that one as well if they have that model! The method that you show requires an air compressor, which most people do not have, but most people who have a vacuum have running water.
I take the entire vertical section of my Dyson apart, 3 little star screws on the purple top section, and put the cyclone parts and handle section in a laundry tub of soapy water,squish around, gray dusty gunk comes out and the rinse under running water and hang up to dry. Same with the hose and vertical reach tube. I found your site while looking for other suggestions on cleaning the Dyson.
Hi Marie, Thanks for your suggestion. If you do not have an air compressor, I also mentioned that you can easily use a can of compressed air, easily purchased at any store. This step is incredibly simple. The hardest part is locating and removing your vacuum filter. Most Dyson vacuum filters are located near the cyclone. They are usually a purple color, and once you locate it you can easily lift it out in order to clean it. Keep in mind, some Dyson vacuum models have two filters, one near the cyclone and another within the ball or side housing of the vacuum.
All you have to do to clean your vacuum filter is rinse it under water. Dyson recommends avoiding any sort of cleaning detergent or soap when cleaning your vacuum filter. Simply rinse it under water until the water runs clear. Let your vacuum filter dry completely for 24 hours in a warm area before reinserting it back into your vacuum.
Do NOT put the filter in a dryer or try any other drying technique as that can damage your filter. Regardless of how often you clean the rest of your vacuum, Dyson recommends cleaning your vacuum filter every months depending on your model. Your vacuum brush does an important job of grabbing all of the dirt and debris from your hard floors and carpet. To remove the Dyson vacuum brush, you will need either a flathead screwdriver or a coin I use a quarter depending on your model.
Detach and remove the vacuum brush. Grab your scissors and use them to cut away any hair or debris that has wrapped itself around the vacuum brush. Next, grab a soft cleaning brush or a damp microfiber cloth to wipe the vacuum brush bar clean. Make sure it has ample time to air dry before you place it back on your vacuum. This is important to prevent your vacuum from spreading bacteria or grime throughout the rest of your house when cleaning.
If your Dyson vacuum came with multiple attachments, now is a good time to clean those as well. You will want to follow a similar process as you did with the vacuum brush bar. Use your fingers to release any hair or other debris stuck to the vacuum attachment. Check for any blockages inside of the vacuum attachment and remove those with your fingers. Use a damp microfiber cloth or soft cleaning brush to wipe away any remaining dust or dirt from the attachment.
Once your vacuum brush grabs debris, it will get sucked into your vacuum hose. If the hose is clogged even slightly, it will affect the suction power of your vacuum. Check your manufacturer instructions to determine how and if you can remove the vacuum hose. Once removed, visually check if there are any blockages that could be clogging the hose inside.
Once clear, you can follow up by pushing a very small, damp cleaning cloth through the hose with the same broomstick. Be very careful to let your vacuum hose dry completely before reattaching to your vacuum.
|How do you clean a dyson||Step 2: Cleaning the Bin Only use a damp cloth to clean the bin, and ensure that it is not too wet. Be careful not to pull the trigger as this will turn the vacuum on. When I emptied the canister, it was almost full! Thank you for the tips. I have had my Dyson for about 11 years. What else can I use?|

|Промокод dyson||Thanks for the awesome step by step instructions. Have never had a problem with it. My first time cleaning it like that. Remove it carefully. This will be very helpful! You can follow our step-by-step guide every one or two months — perhaps more if you vacuum or deep clean regularly.|
|How do you clean a dyson||Replace the internal hose collar and the cyclone. Who is comte mede de sivrac? How did the vacuum cleaner change the world? Then, wash your filters by running cold water through them until they appear clean, and lay them out to dry for at least 24 hours. Will give it a couple of days for the cyclone to dry out completely.|
I do have one question on how to clean the extension hose? I think I would try to stick something through it, then use the air compressor to blow it out more. The extension hose will come off the expandable part. Thanks for the tips! I never really thought about taking it all apart like that, so I will definitely give it a try!
We have 3 girls in our house, and all of our hair is pretty long. Any tips or suggestions to make this quicker, or better yet, not happen at all?? LuAnn, Sorry, no tips for prevention. I use scissors or a sharp pocket knife to cut mine faster. Hi LuAnn R. This is painful when hair tangles around the brushes but I use a razor blade mostly and just have scissors on standby. If you go along with your razor blade and cut all the hair, the pulling out of the hair is easy.
That thing can be removed. Or at least it can on mine. Saves a lot of time cleaning it. Basically just flip the vacuum over and you will see plastic fasteners on the bottom plate. About quarter sized with a slit in the middle. There may be up to a few depending on model. Use a wide flat head screwdriver, coin nickels work good , whatever works for you..
I do believe some models have a belt on the bar. You just slide it off. This allows you to easily clean it over a garbage can. I personally use a seam ripper or letter opener and run it down the bar a couple times until all the stuff is cut. Then just pull all the hair off. Hi Christina! I touched on taking the roller out under step 3, but I love the suggestion of using a seam ripper! Great tip! Thanks for commenting. I was about to start hunting for a new Dyson mine is 5 years old. I followed your instructions yesterday and today, it works like new!
Lorien, I also take credit cards. I have a Dyson with the ball, and there is also a filter in the ball part that can be pulled out and cleaned! Just recline the vacuum part all the way, make sure the opening for the ball part is at the top, and press the button to open it up! I have had the Dyson Animal for several years, when I got mine the sales person told me to take it outside every so often and take it apart and blow it out with the air compressor, my husband does this for me no less then once a month.
I got an extra filer off of Amazon so if needed I can wash one and let it air dry and pop my extra in. My Dyson runs like new… so easy and takes no time at all to do. I have a question about the inside part on step 4. If you turn it over mine gets so dirty inside how do you clean this short of using a baby bottle brush? I love the Dyson but man this is the only issue that makes mine lag and not such up.
Nikki, I personally use an air compressor that is fairly high powered and so I blow the air up the inside. I know of other sites that suggest running the entire part under warm water, however, when I contacted Dyson to confirm that, they specifically told me not to get it wet, and that it voids any warranty. Good luck! I just purchased my first Dyson DC65 Animal. Appreciate your instructive steps on routine maintenance. What type of high powered compressor would you recommend? The linked one is the one I use- so I recommend that brand highly!
What air compressor do you have? Thank you! Good Tip! That one also needs to be cleaned to replaced periodically. BJ, If you have the Dyson Ball vacuum, there is indeed a second filter. Thanks for commenting for people to remember that one as well if they have that model! The method that you show requires an air compressor, which most people do not have, but most people who have a vacuum have running water. I take the entire vertical section of my Dyson apart, 3 little star screws on the purple top section, and put the cyclone parts and handle section in a laundry tub of soapy water,squish around, gray dusty gunk comes out and the rinse under running water and hang up to dry.
Same with the hose and vertical reach tube. I found your site while looking for other suggestions on cleaning the Dyson. Hi Marie, Thanks for your suggestion. If you do not have an air compressor, I also mentioned that you can easily use a can of compressed air, easily purchased at any store.
But I know many people that successfully use your technique as well. I have the DC50 animal Dyson. My vacuum has the worst smell which I compare to a vomit smell, which we have never vacuumed vomit with it. I have had it professionally cleaned at the vacuum shop but the smell is still there. Hi Stacey, Have you tried using baking soda in the canister? Maybe dump a bunch on your carpet and then vacuum it up and let it sit in there for a while? Maybe even talk to their customer service?
I hear they have good CS. Best, Megan. Baking soda does not rinse out and you will need to replace the filters. Just food for thought…been there done it. Abby, Do you know why? Most carpet powders including the one that came with my Dyson Animal has the main ingredient of baking soda.
Turn your vacuum with its bottom side up and disconnect the soleplate with a screwdriver. After that, use a pair of scissors or a seam ripper to snip away any strands of hair caught in the roller. To begin cleaning the hose, you need to detach it from the wand.
Push the small red side button to release it and set the wand to the side for subsequent cleaning. In addition, slide off the plastic U-bend by using a screwdriver so the hose is disconnected from the machine. Make sure that the hose is as straight as you can get it so all of the debris inside can come out. Wash it in your sink or bathtub. Gather all the removable parts of your Dyson, as well as the attachments it came with. Use a damp microfiber cloth to remove any dust or dirt from the pieces or rinse them in cold water.
You should also wipe down the whole vacuum cleaner before proceeding with the final step of cleaning your Dyson vacuum. Set aside between 24 and 48 hours for all the parts, attachments, and filters to dry entirely. Overall, our tips on how to clean a Dyson vacuum will help you make the most of your trusted product.
Although the process is necessary only once every couple of months, you should never overlook it when the times comes to give your Dyson a good cleaning. We also recommend that you look into our other guide on how to maintain vacuum cleaner units in general.
