On top of the machine from the back the top comes off. Just push from the back on the top and it should come off. The filer is under the top. Hope this helps. Chris

Failed circuit board. Mine did the same same. Red flashing light, no power at the hose on/off switch, but would turn on manually at unit. To make sure, use a jumper wire or a quarter out of your change jar, and jump the two male power plugs on the wall socket where your hose plugs in. If it doesn't come on, then your hose is alright. I picked up a new circuit board on the net for around $80 and changed it out in 15 minutes and was a very simple fix anyone can do.

Thanks for making contact and I'm sorry you're having difficulty.

I would suggest that this is a blockage of some kind as the pulsating is caused by a lack of airflow (the motor is protecting itself by pulsating and then ultimately cutting out).

I would recommend looking at the following video which will take you through a methodical way of checking this. The model in the video is a DC59 but applies to most cordless models:

Furthermore, I would check the bin inlet to make sure that the one-way door/flap is not jammed as this also can cause the problem.

If you continue to have difficulty, please give the Dyson Helpline a call on 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA), 0800 298 0298 (UK). Our experts will be happy to talk you through some further diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

Best wishes
