Product information

The DC54 is the only vacuum that never loses suction. With Dyson Cinetic™ cyclones – Dyson's most efficient cyclone technology – there's no need to ever replace a bag or wash a filter. Ball™ technology means DC54 turns on the spot, following you without awkward moves. And Dyson's most advanced cleaner head technology ensures high pick-up across all floors.

Dyson Cinetic™ cyclone technology
54 Dyson Cinetic™ cyclones have high frequency oscillating tips that vibrate. This prevents the cyclone aperture from clogging. They are so efficient at dust separation that no filter maintenance is required – meaning no loss of suction.

No bags to buy, no filters to wash or replace.
Because of the efficiency of Dyson Cinetic™ cyclone technology, no pre-motor filter is required and the post-motor filter requires no maintenance. So there’s nothing to wash or replace. And with no bag, there are no extra costs.

Ball™ technology
Conventional cylinder vacuums can be awkward – they can be heavy to pull, head the wrong way and collide with obstacles. Dyson Ball™ vacuums are the only cylinder vacuums with a central steering mechanism. The pivot point is located near the centre of the machine, enabling it to make tighter turning circles and follow with greater control.

Reconfigured carbon fibre turbine head
Latest carbon fibre turbine head engineered for all floor types. Conductive carbon fibre brushes remove fine dust from hard floors, and stiff nylon brushes remove ground-in dirt from carpets. No need to turn the brush bar off when moving from one floor type to another.

Q & As


Special offer

    Trade-in any vacuum and receive money off a Dyson upright or cylinder machine.

    Conventional vacuums with bags clog and lose suction. Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums are different. Patented cyclone technology spins dirty air at high speeds, flinging microscopic particles out of the airflow and into the bin. There’s no bag, so there’s no loss of suction.

    From 09 April to 27 May 2014, you can trade-in your old vacuum cleaner of any make and get money off brand new selected Dyson upright or cylinder machines. The trade-in offer is available at all participating John Lewis stores and through our website.

    All Dyson upright and cylinder vacuums come with a free 5-year guarantee – parts and labour. And because they have lifetime washable filters and there are no bags to buy, there are no extra costs.

    Terms and conditions:

    The offer is only available if the customer agrees to dispose of an old vacuum cleaner he or she already owns by entering the promotional code DYSON110 at the end of checkout, and bringing their old vacuum cleaner to the small electrical department next time they visit a John Lewis store.

    If the customer wishes to return the product, only the discounted price paid will be refunded and the old vacuum will not be returned. Also available in John Lewis shops. Offer ends 27 May 2014.

Frighteningly good Amazing vacuum cleaner! This beauty is not light or cheap but is in a class of its own as far as picking up dirt goes. It got a scary amount of dust out of my carpets and no nasty filters to clean. It is a bit messy to empty, but that's my only niggle with it, I love it. 16 April 2014
Took a while to get the hang of I really love this product but it took a while to work out how to empty and which gadget to use for which surface. Would help if the instructions were more user friendly! Great performance though once I had worked it out. 04 March 2014
Simply amazing Everything about this machine is of the highest quality; its power, suction, durability, the variety of parts. With my previous vacuum cleaner; which I had for five years, it would take a long time (approx. 50 minutes) and a lot of muscle to remove hair that was trapped in my carpets, as I had to go over the same area over and over again to remove hair. However with this Dyson, it takes me on average, 15 minutes to vacuum the whole house. You must be thinking, from 50 to 15 minutes? I tend not to write reviews, but this vacuum cleaner has turned an unbearable cleaning operation, into a simple walk around the house. I just had to share my delight. Before buying this product I felt that no matter what cleaner I bought, it would be pointless as I blamed my carpets, oh how wrong I was. 05 February 2014
