Customer Question

JA: Do you know the model of your Dyson vacuum? How old is it?
Customer: It's probably about 15 years old
JA: How long has this been going on with your Dyson vacuum? What have you tried so far?

Hi - Welcome to JustAnswer I’m Paddy I will be your technician.

Do you still need help with your Dyson?

Expert:  Paddy replied 11 days ago.

Hi - To remove and empty your dust collection canister, you will see a button to the top of the canister carry handle, press the button and the canister will lift away from the body of your Dyson.

When you are ready to empty the canister into a bin there is another latch to the back of the handle, press this and the hatch to the bottom of the canister will open. I have attached an image which will help to identify where these button are.

I hope this helps - if you have any questions please message me.
