Why it's important to clean your filter regularly
The filter captures microscopic dust, which can accumulate and affect performance. Help maintain suction by washing the filter at least once a month, or more frequently if used heavily.
How to clean your filters
1. Remove your Dyson filters
Lift the filter out of the cyclone assembly (filter A). Twist and remove the filter at the back of your machine (filter B).
2. Remove excess dust
Tap your filters lightly to remove any loose dust and debris.
3. Wash filter A
Hold under running water and squeeze gently until the water runs clear. Squeeze and twist filter to remove excess water.
4. Wash filter B
Wash the inside under cold, running water. Repeat until the water runs clear. Firmly shake the filter until no water comes out.
5. Leave to dry for 24+ hours
Dry your filters in a well-ventilated, warm place for at least 24 hours. Place filter B with the open end facing up. Your filters must be completely dry before you put them back into the machine, or it could damage the motor.
6. Refit the filters
Screw filter B onto the back of your machine, rotating clockwise. Push filter A back into the cyclone assembly.
Emptying and cleaning the clear bin
Overfilling the bin can reduce suction and affect performance. To maintain suction, empty as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker. Cleaning the bin removes dust build-up and helps optimise performance.
Your machine will pulse and then stop if there's a blockage. Our video shows you how to check and remove debris.*The accessories, machine type and colour shown may differ from the one or ones you own. But the advice and processes remain the same.
