Great news! Our US based team have launched a new Amazon Alexa voice skill that provides owner support. 

Those that own a Cordless vacuum can now say, “Alexa, open Dyson Care” to address their cordless vacuum’s performance, power, or visible issues. Alexa from Amazon guides owners through step-by-step diagnostics to identify problems and ways to resolve them. Sounds simple enough! 

In this article we cover 5 key questions which will help you get the best out of this new service. 

 

(1) How does Dyson Care support owners?

The types of troubleshooting that Dyson Care can support can fit into three main categories: performance, power, or visible. This could include a clog that’s affecting the suction, a battery replacement to improve your machine's run time, or regular wear and tear on a vacuum part.

Dyson Care can help identify the problem and provide the necessary steps to fix it. Many issues can be resolved by the machine owner without the need for advanced engineering knowledge.​

Dyson Care can help owners resolve​:

  • A vacuum that is pulsing or turns on and off rapidly
  • Battery life that is not what it used to be
  • A part that seems broken or has visible wear
  • Cleaning or changing the vacuum filter
  • Suction that is not what it used to be
  • Explanations for alerts on your machine's display

 

(2) What vacuums are support​ed by Dyson Care?

At launch, Dyson Care will only support owners with cordless vacuum troubleshooting needs. This includes support for the Dyson V6, Dyson V7, Dyson V8, Dyson V10, Dyson V11, Dyson Outsize, Dyson Micro, Dyson V12, and Dyson V15. Dyson Care does not currently support any corded upright models, the DC series, air treatment machines, or hair care machines.​

Don’t forget to visit the Dyson Newsroom for updates, including when they’ll be adding more categories to Dyson Care. 

 

(3) Can I set maintenance reminders​?

Dyson Care also supports users by providing an option to set a regular maintenance reminder about filter cleaning, which is an important but often overlooked task that’s essential to keeping their cordless vacuum performing at its best. Owners can choose the best day and time to receive this monthly reminder.​

 

(4) Where is Dyson Care available​?

Dyson Care is currently only available in the US and German skill stores through Amazon in either English or German. Dyson owners in these countries can now simply say, "Alexa, open Dyson Care" to try this new experience.

 

(5) What makes Dyson Care different​?

Dyson Care guides users through a step-by-step diagnosis and resolution of the issue with their machine. Because the Dyson Care skill is voice based, users will have their hands free to focus on their machine and the Dyson Care prompts. Dyson Care is supported by all Alexa-enabled devices, with or without a screen. The Alexa devices with screens do have visuals to support owners during the troubleshooting experience. If the issue or resolution needs more explanation, Dyson Care will send links to videos and additional resources directly to the user’s phone.​

Owners have several care options when experiencing issues. They can visit support on Dyson.com, chat, email, call, or visit a local Dyson service center. Dyson Care provides yet another channel for owners seeking support for Dyson cordless vacuums. This channel helps reduce wait times for a resolution because owners don't need to wait to speak with a representative, receive an email back, and/or drive and wait for service or a repair to be completed.​
