I have a dyson V6 absolute I love it and use it almost daily,I pick up alot of dog hair with it. Has a smell of stale dog hair that really stinks to the point I sometimes don't want to use it.I empty it after every use and I wash the filters twice a month.I tried some carpet fresh but does't help and gets empty in trash. Does someone have any idea what I should do.I called dyson they walked me through taking it all apart,still smells. The smell is in this thing that looks like a screen , dyson sad I should get a new screen but it's not covered under warranty and costs about $80.00.

I'd remove the cyclone assembly and wash it/soak it in ridz. I've used it to remove a pissy smell from a Kirby cloth bag with great results. Lemon drop, bamboo and mango tango are some of my favorite scents.

The Cyclone can be disassembled and scrubbed. This is quite the tedious task most people are not capable of doing it without breaking something. Replacing the cyclone is an option. I definitely recommend an enzyme-based cleaner like those used to treat animal stains. This will help eliminate odors in the filter
