Getting started

You can quickly get up and running with our step-by-step guide.

Fully charge before first use

For the best experience, we recommend fully charging your machine, and any additional batteries, as soon as you open the box and after every clean. This is because the battery and monitoring system's algorithm 'learns' over time, and fully charging your batteries helps it to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.

    Tackles dust in hard-to-reach places, such as gaps and corners. And shows you where you're cleaning, even in dark spaces.

  • Combination tool

    Two tools in one, for versatile cleaning. Its stiff nylon bristles are tough enough to remove ground-in dirt.

  • Stubborn dirt brush

    The stiff bristles remove mud and dried-in dirt.

  • Up-top adaptor

    Twists and locks at different angles for effective cleaning in high-up areas of your home.

  • Low-reach Adaptor

    Extends, bends and twists to remove dust from awkward spaces.

  • Extension hose

    Combines with other Dyson tools to provide a longer reach.

  • Wand storage clip

    Handily stores the Combination and Crevice tools on the wand of your vacuum.

Useful tips

    Regularly wash the filter

    It's important to wash the filter regularly, to maintain optimum performance. The screen will remind you when it's time to do this.

  • Bin full of debris

    Don't overfill it

    To maintain suction, keep an eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker.

  • Setting up your dock

    You can use the dock to store your machine, so it's always to hand and ready to go. See how to set it up.

Frequently asked questions

The screen on your machine will remind you when it's time to clean your filter. This will usually be around once a month, but may be more frequent if you use your machine heavily. After cleaning your filter, always leave it to dry for at least 24 hours. Ensure it's completely dry before refitting on your machine. We strongly recommend following the cleaning instructions and cleaning by hand. The filter is not suitable for dishwasher use.

A full charge takes up to 3.5 hours.

We recommend fully charging a spare battery soon after purchase, and alternating batteries regularly to prolong battery health.

Your battery has been designed to be left on charge, so it’s fine to leave it plugged in after charging.

We recommend fully charging your machine after every clean. This helps your vacuum's battery and monitoring system's algorithm to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.
