Maintaining your machine

It's important to maintain your machine to keep it working at its best. From washing the filter to emptying the bin, you can find tips and advice below.

  • Cleaning the bin

    You can maintain suction by emptying the bin before debris reaches the MAX line. The bin can also be fully removed from the machine for cleaning. Watch our video for a step-by-step guide.

  • Washing the Micro Fluffy™ cleaner head

    Removing fine dust from the Soft roller brush bar maintains its effectiveness. Detach from the cleaner head, and wash in cold tap water until the water runs clear. Make sure it's completely dry before refitting. Our video guide shows you how.

  • Checking for blockages

    If your machine detects a blockage, the motor will pulse six times. You won’t be able to use your machine until the blockage is cleared. If this happens, remove the wand, bin and cleaner head and clear any blockages you find. Watch the video guide to see how.

  • Cleaning the washable parts

    Many parts of your machine can be easily cleaned using a lint-free cloth. This helps to maintan performance by preventing a build up of fine dust. Our video guide shows you how.

  • Replacing the battery

    With your machine unplugged from the charger, the battery can be replaced using a small Posidrive screwdriver. Watch our video to guide you through the steps.

Cleaning your filter

Your filter captures fine dust which can build up over time and reduce performance. But by cleaning it at least once a month, you can help maintain suction power. Follow the video guide, or step-by-step instructions below.

  • Filter being removed from vacuum

    1. Turn off your machine

    Disconnect your machine at the wall socket and twist the top to remove your Dyson filter.

  • Loose debris being shaken from filter

    2. Remove excess debris

    Tap your filter unit lightly on the side of the sink or in the bin, to remove any loose dust and debris.

  • Filter being rinsed under running water

    3. Rinse filter

    Wash your filter unit under the tap, gently squeezing the water out with your hands. Avoid using detergent or washing in a dishwasher or washing machine.

  • Filter held in two hands over a sink

    4. Give it a gentle shake

    Fill the filter unit with water. With one hand covering each end, shake it gently to ensure all trapped debris is released. Repeat this step until the water runs clear.

  • Filter placed on flat surface to dry

    5. Leave to dry for 24+ hours

    After washing the filter, leave to dry for at least 24 hours with the wider end positioned downwards.

  • Filter drying with space around it and near to a radiator

    6. Maximise airflow

    Leave your filter in a warm place with plenty of airflow until completely dry. This could be beside a fan or open window. Avoid drying the filter in a tumble dryer, microwave or near a naked flame.

Frequently asked questions

We recommend you clean your filter around once a month, but this 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 4 hours.

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