Thanks. Had to wash out the dog smell. This did the trick when new filters wouldn't. Shame on Dyson for not making an easier to clean vacuum.

At last I was able to clean behind the cyclone filter! Brick dust is the worst! I don’t mean to hoover it but just had the house remodeled so it’s everywhere. Thanks!
