Keeps getting clogged
I love the majority of my Dyson products but this product is disappointing. The opening into the canister is too small and constantly gets clogged with dirt and pet hair. When this happens, the vacuum does not suck anymore and starts pulsating. The only way to get it unclogged is to open the canister and use your hand to remove the blockage.
Response from Dyson Customer SupportFeb 15, 2022
Hi there, this is Kelly with Dyson. We're sorry to hear that you're having issues with your V8 Animal clogging so frequently. One great feature of our cord-free machines is how modular they are, which makes them fairly simple to troubleshoot and resolve any ongoing issues. With regard to the dust bin, you'll always want to ensure that the bin is emptied before debris is able to fill past the max line on the side. Any time debris is able to fill past this spot, it can wind up getting trapped in the upper portion of the bin. The bin can completely remove, however, for ease of emptying or getting any debris out of the bin completely. We would value the opportunity to go over your machine with you and help to make sure that it's performing as intended. Feel free to get in touch with us via email at askdysonUS@dyson.com. Best wishes, Kelly Dyson Customer Support
    GREAT VACUUM, only one dislike.
    Purchased this vacuum a month ago, after replacing carpet with laminate flooring in the house. Does a fantastic cleaning on the new laminate, with area rug coverings, and existing hardwood floors. Can't believe the amount of dog hair that it picks up, never knew it was there. The vacuum battery does last for covering 1500 square feet of area. My only dislike about this vacuum, is the trigger design. It is not a locking trigger, so it must be held down constantly for use. A non-locking trigger I can understand, good idea, but the bottom rest on the trigger guard tends to rub on the side of your finger during use. A longer bar type activation trigger would be a better comfort for use, employing one or two fingers and no bottom finger guard to rub the side of finger during use. This would be more of a comfort for arthritic finger/hand use, from experience I can say.

        Amazing for 1 year then everything breaks
        Bought this 2 years ago and after 1 year the plastic kept breaking starting with the purple pole, then the wheels, and now the motor back part seal is no longer sealing. Everything has been replaced at cost to me! The last defective part the motor was the last straw I will never buy a Dyson again, it's not worth the money when it dIes after 2 years.

        Hi there, this is Kelly with Dyson. We're sorry to hear that you've had so many issues with your Dyson V8. It's rather unusual to hear of all the problems you've had with pieces breaking. Dyson cord-free machines are made from polycarbonate ABS - the same material used in riot shields and crash helmets. They are tough, so we subject them to hours of testing, including drop and impact tests. Dyson machines are built to withstand years of residential household use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f3iXRFizaz8. As you'll see from the video, these machines go through some punishing tests to ensure their durability. As a general reminder, the 2-year manufacturer limited warranty that we include with our cord-free machines is in effect from the original date of purchase, and covers the vacuum for both parts and labor for manufacturer defects, when used for private household purposes in accordance with the owner manual. However, the warranty does not cover wear/tear damage, cleaning the machine, accidental damage, tools and accessories, or maintenance of the machine which includes filter maintenance and blockage removal. If you have any additional questions, or require further assistance, please feel free to email us at questions@dyson.com. Best wishes, Kelly Dyson Customer Support
          Malfunctioned on 1st Use
          So after diligently following the instructions, I used it once and when I was done cleaning my 200 square feet, laminate hard floor, the dust bin was half full, so I turned off the power and followed the chart showing how to empty the dust bin, that's when things went wrong --- dust bin wouldn't open-end when I tried pressing down on the "crown" as shown in diagram, nothing budged and the crown/top is stuck up *Please the picture attached* - I had thought Dyson customer service would be excellent, based on the price point, but after 3 days of trying every possible way to reach a Dyson rep without success, I'm getting a little frustrated. About ready to return, though that's a lot of work too. I really just want an 'expert' to help me troubleshoot.

          Hi there, this is Kelly with Dyson. We're sorry that you have run in to an issue with opening/emptying the dust bin on your V8 Motorhead. We can confirm that you will need to pull upwards on the red latch, rather sharply at first at it may seem stiff, twice. The first pull will pull the cyclone upwards out of the bin, and the second pull will pop open the bin base door. If the bin door gets closed before the cyclone gets pushed back into the machine, it can cause the bin to jam. While I understand you have already taken the time to reach out for support with the problem, we'd value the opportunity to learn more regarding your experience, as we're dedicated to customer satisfaction. Please consider emailing us directly at askdysonUS@dyson.com. We look forward to hearing from you.

            Buyer Beware!! Scratches hardwood floors...
            Bought this Dyson last year and loved it! I used it as advertised... on all my flooring. I was so impressed with the suction, convenience and versatility of the unit that I raved about it to everyone that I knew. However 6 months after first use I notice scratches on my hardwood flooring. Couldn’t figure out where they came from until I witnessed damage from the unit as I vacuumed. The lines on the floor came directly from the ball. I reached out to Dyson and provided photos of the damage with honest testimony. They refused liability and stated that my wood manufacturer or floor refinisher should have been consulted before using the V8 EVEN THOUGH THEY ADVERTISED SAFE FOR HARDWOOD FLOORS!! After denying liability Dyson offered me a “soft ball” as long as I sign a release of liability form. Dyson states that it is safer for hardwood floors. Why offer me a soft ball if the hard ball does no damage? I have since researched and found multiple reviews on damage of hardwood floors from these Dyson units and similar deniable liability experiences from Dyson. Seems like grounds for a class action lawsuit. Buyer beware. Honestly great product for any other floor surface.

              The Cats have met their match!
              We were looking for a vacuum to do quick pick ups between using our corded tank type vacuum. The Dyson has become the primary vacuum! We foster cats and the Dyson V8 does an amazing job picking up after them. We have polished concrete floors and area rugs and the V8 adapts to all surfaces nicely. The attachments that come with the V8 are such a bonus when it comes time to clean out the cars or collect lint and dust in hard to reach areas.The Dyson handles well and is so versatile. It's amazing to see what the Dyson picks up right down to fine silt.Great Product!

                A Powerful and Perfect Cordless Vacuum for pet owners!
                This was honestly the very first Dyson product, and vacuum, that I have ever owned and I am thoroughly impressed with how much suction power comes from this tiny cordless vacuum. I own a dog who sheds pretty badly and live in an apartment and this thing keeps both my hardwood floors and my carpeting clean and spotless. I highly recommend this vacuum to anyone who is new to Dyson and also owns animal(s).

                  BEST VACUUM ON EARTH!
                  The best purchase decision I’ve ever made in my adult life was buying a Dyson. The suction on this cordless vacuum is unbelievable. I’ve owned bissell’s, Eureka’s and sharks, but none of them can compare to the dyson v8. Easy to use, easy to clean, & with 45 minute battery life I can vacuum every surface in my house in one shot. My next purchase is the Dyson ball! I’m a customer for life.
