Frustrating product to useCinetic Big Ball Animal+
I have had the Cinetic Big Ball Animal+ for about a year. I was a big Dyson fan prior to buying this product as I have purchased multiple Dyson products over the last 15 years. I cannot help but rate this as the worst Dyson product I have purchased. The canister that collects dust fills very quickly and the lid is extremely fiddly. I am never quite sure if I have closed the lid correctly, and if not, the contents spill out onto the floor when I remove it from the main unit. The suction is great however for some reason I find it very tiring... Read more to use. I think the "big ball" unit is too heavy and difficult to move around furniture. If you suffer from arthritis in your hands or arms then I would strongly recommend not buying this product. I will still look at other Dyson products in the future however I personally think this a poor product.
Overall very goodCinetic Big Ball Multi Floor
I've recently bought my second Dyson Cinetic Big Ball vacume cleaner. I bought the same brand and model again as it is the best vacume cleaner I have ever had. The first one was still working 5 years after buying, I handed onto my daughter as she moved out and need a good vacume.
Very easily picks up dog hair, when other brands do not. Very glad vacume bags not required, so one less thing to buy. The chamber fill container is easy to empty, just press the button to detach from the main vacume and push another button to empty the contents.
Som... Read moree small issues: 1. Sometimes after emptying the fill container, it is sometimes difficult to connect the lid back into position. 2. When the chamber is getting full and needs to be emptied, after pressing the button to detach from the vacume, the lid sometimes opens by itself and the contents are spilt everywhere. I now have to hold the lid in place before I activate the detach button, to prevent spillage. Over all I really like this vacume, just a few small annoying things prevent giving this vacume 5 starts
I love it. It's so perfectCinetic Big Ball
It designed for both hard floor and carpet which I found so useful. You can simply press the paddle to change the surface from carpet to timber/laminate. It also doesn't need vacuum bags which is the best thing about it.Show details
Clogging, looses suctionCinetic Big Ball Animal
Vacuuming carpet the Dyson looses suction after about 2 minutes , I then empty the waste container clean/wipe around the metal filters with a damp cloth and away it goes for another 2 minutes, very frustratingShow details

Worse vacuum everCinetic Big Ball Multi Floor
Dyson should be ashamed, worse vacuum ever. If you have carpet do not buy, it has these little wheels on the vacuum head which digs in and causes havoc to the carpet. It also Doesn’t even vacuum hair up on carpet. If you also want to quickly vacuum a corner by taking the head of the vacuum there is gap in the hand piece (designed by someone that’s never done vacuuming). Do not buy unless you like being frustrated.Show details
Dyson quality has gone down hillCinetic Big Ball Animal Pro
I own multiple Dyson products but this one is by far the worst. Dyson cy22 animal pro…. Has just not lasted. The vacuum has continually lost suction, unlike my dc39 this vacuum does not have the option to clean the filters and I constantly have had problems with this model. Turbine brush stopped spinning and I’m not impressed at all. I have had a v6 dyson stick vacuum that has worked for years and now have a v8. This one however has been the most problematic of all the dyson products I have purchased…. Really disappointedShow details
Has it's faults for 1000 prototypesCinetic Big Ball Multi Floor
Bought it a year ago, like others it has it's issues that drive me nuts.
First, there is 9 joins in the hose! after some wear and tear the joins become lose and ammit a high frequency sound, I've had to tape them up to shut it up. Second, the tab on the fill container broke. Third, the power switch has no grip so your finger and foot slides off without actually turning it on. Forth, when flicking out the brush for hard floors instead of sucking up dirt ect it just pushes it away. Way to many bristles.
Other than that its ok but i hate using it.
I just can't Believe that Dyson actually produced this Vacuum!!!Cinetic Big Ball Multi Floor Extra
Well I purchased this Vacuum Cleaner (Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Multi Floor Extra) back in February, 2023. I have to tell you that I can't believe that Dyson actually produced a vacuum cleaner like this one!! It is Terrible!! I have a Dyson Gen5 Detect Stick Vacuum that I use around my home - and it is a pleasure to use. Not the case with this Barrell Vacuum!! I purchased it from Dyson on EBay. I bought it mainly for 2 reasons. 1. To use to vacuum my car, and 2. to vacuum the carpets in my 3 bedrooms.
1. Trying to use it to vacuum my car is a nig
Hands down the worst vacuum I have ever purchasedCinetic Big Ball Multi Floor Extra
This thing flings dust and bird seed behind it, in front of it - EVERYWHERE!! Takes me 4-5 times as long to try and vacuum something.
Clunky and awkward head and handle. I have tried the two supplied heads and swapped to a turbo head. Avoid!
I will never buy a Dyson brand again
Not ergonomicCinetic Big Ball Origin
This vacuum does the job in terms of removing dust and debris from various surfaces. But the ridiculous handle design has given me the worst RSI. I'm in so much pain after using it only twice to vacuum my 3 bedroom house.. I couldn't even cut slices of cheese after damaging my wrist vacuuming in such an awkward position. A friend of mine experienced similar and now has a lump on her wrist!
There were other issues, like the flimsy extendible tube and the bulky head. But the pain from holding the handle is enough for me to get rid of this machine.
DisappointingCinetic Big Ball Multi Floor Extra
We have had this model's baby brother for a long time until the handle trigger cracked and duct tape was successfully used to repair. We replaced it with this Big Ball model, expecting the same or better performance. Wrong. The main body does not roll, you have to drag it behind you. Fluff and lint on carpet has to be picked up after you have vacuumed the area. Hopeless. I do like the easier chamber emptying feature and the quieter motor.Show details
Love the DysonCinetic Big Ball Multi Floor
I have wanted a Dyson for a while, now we have one it’s definitely Dyson for life! Bought from ‘The Good Guys’
Love it, stick Dyson next on th3 shopping list!
Works till it doesn'tCinetic Big Ball Animal
I have solid hardwood flooring so this vacuum get very little use. I bought the extended warranty. About 2 years ago it started blowing out dust on startup. I ultimately sent it in for repair. I got it back and it was still blowing out dust on startup. For the amount of money I paid, I expect much more.
Big mistakeCinetic Big Ball Animal Pro
After living with and loving the first dyson for many years before I was forced to retire it, I bought the new dyson cinetic big ball animal pro believing it to be a new and improved model...improved no way!! The attachments are awkward and time consuming to use, the spinning brush head bristles broke off and the 3 in one multi tool is ridiculously awkward to use and hair and fluff etc gets snagged on the many joins up the pipes and brush heads. The plastic body & barrel are flimsy and fragile and changing attachments and pipes take forever to slot together...what a disgrace! Saw 2 dyson vacuum cleaners in a charity shop 4 sale last week & they were still there yesterday...go figure!Show details
Questions & Answers
I was very happy to finally buy myself a Dyson Cinetic Big Ball Multi Floor vacuum cleaner, but after using only twice, I find it is not picking up hair, especially off my rug. I had to brush the rug manually with a brush. We are only two retirees, both with short white hair and this is the hair that is on the carpet/rug. I have the slider about half way and this makes my back very tired. Do you have any suggestions.
How do you get the filter out of a dyson cinetic big ball allergy
It doesn't have a serviceable one because of the cinetic technology
The vacuum has a paper filter and if it is is compromised then the vacuum may emit dust. Leah, you may find that YouTube has a tutorial on removing/replacing the filter.
Hi Leah s, and thanks for your question.
This model is designed for no owner filter maintenance, whilst there is an internal post filter inside the main body, this part shouldn't be accessed unless being serviced by Dyson technician.
It is difficult to install by hand to our exact manufacturing specifications, may require a level of disassembly that we don't recommend owners undertaking, or may have safety reasons not to. Due to this, if you need assistance with this part, we'd kindly ask you to reach out to our customer support team, our contact details are found here:
Hi. I purchased the Dyson Big Ball Cinetic animal + allergy second hand. I have searched everywhere for info about the exhaust. air comes out of the top and also through a small valve on the plastic bin. It seems to drastically reduce the suction. Is there a piece missing, a plug maybe?
