Among Dyson’s line of upright vacuums, the DC15 Ball features a number of detachable parts, making basic periodic maintenance of the machine accessible to even novice technicians. Larger objects may sometimes cause a blockage inside the DC15. Depending on where the blockage occurs, the problem may be remedied by removal of the hose from the machine.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Unwrap the cord from the backside of the Dyson DC15 Ball. If the machine is plugged in, unplug it now.

  2. 2

    Press the wand release catch, located just below the handle, and detach the wand and hose from the machine.

  3. 3

    Press the two retaining clips located beneath the wand release catch, and separate the top of the hose from the wand.

  4. 4

    Rotate the base of the hose downwards, away from the machine, until it clicks.

  5. 5

    Twist the base of the hose clockwise to remove this end of the hose from the Dyson DC15.
