This is a common question asked of almost every vacuum tech. In most cases yes it can be washed. For best results if it is fibre or paper, dont wash it get a can of compressed air like you would use for a computer and blow it out. if it is any other material just drop it in the dish washer on delicate cycle and be sure to let it dry for a couple days before reinstalling it.

Ps hope this is helpfull, and dont forget to rate the solution. Thanks

Is the flex all right? Check it with a voltmeter or a continuity meter (available for a small sum in your local hardware or electrical shop).

Electrolux Vitesse Pet Lover 1800w. I was given this vacuum today. It works fine but is really loud. It's hardly had any use. Is this normal? I just put in ear protection.



Should not be that loud. Check all the filters and see if they are ok. Check to see what the suction level is. This is kind of subjective. IT might have a bad bearing in the motor.

You need to have the vacuum cleaned out. If you are good with tools, just remove the motor and fans assembly, take the fans off and wash them. Brush ALL dirt out of the housing and reassemble. Your Electrolux dealer can do this but it isn't cheap. I used to be the service manager for my area. Since it isn't under warranty, you can have ANY reliable vacuum cleaner shop give a good cleanout. NEVER put anything into the cleaner to make it smell good. Electrolux cleaners get their power by having a straight through suction. The air goes through the motor. Adding smelly things can crystallize onto the motor and burn it out.

Loud high pitched noise from Electrolux Vitesse petlover 1700w


We had a vacuum cleaner that did that and it was the signal to say the bag was full. So to test this remove the bag and see if problem goes. If it does- replace the bag.

Electrolux Vitesse petlover 1700w loud noise


So all that is left is a blocked filter, ie paper like the ones in a car, remove- wash bash out the dust etc- I use compressed air to blow them oput backwards. If it is bagless there has to be a filter somewhere otherwise everything comes straight out.
I would also be looking at hose obstruction and leaks in the body of the system - assuming it still sucks well enough. I often remove the hose and drop a heavy steel rod or the like down to shake out the hose. I have a lot of this with saw dust on the shed cleaner.
If it were mine I would then pull it apart to look for bockages or bits caught in the fans. But do not do this if you are not confident of reconstruction safely or if there is a warranty available.

I HAVE TURNED THE FILTERS AND i HAVE WASHED THE FILTERS A WEEK AGO THE LIGHT IS STILL FLASHING AND THE VACUM WONT GO AT ALL.


If you mean 'it will not turn on, only hiccups and blinks its lights, turning the filter does not (or at least not reliably) turn on the machine, nor does pushing the power button' the cause might be the controller board which sits between the filter holders in front of the machine. On that controller board you'll find a large-ish HQX (or similar) 1uf capacitor which is part of the power supply for the microcontroller (MCU, underneath the board). That capacitor might have lost so much of its capacity that the power supplied to the MCU goes below spec when the motor starts drawing power, leading to a reset.

Replace that capacitor with a similar or bigger version and it might just work again. In my machine I replaced the 1uF HQX X2 (250V~'275V~GMF) with a 2uF SHW 250V~ ripped from an old fence charger and the machine came back to life.

The large capacitor on the right side of the board is the one I replaced.

While you're at it, check the soldering on the controller and sensor boards and reflow anything which looks suspicious, there were a few cold joints on the sensor board on my machine which caused intermittent problems. Also clean the vacuum tube between the pressure sensor (on the left side of the machine) and the air intake (on the right side) and blow out the dust from the nipple which that tube connects to, on the right side of the machine in the air intake duct. You might also find the rubber hoses used to connect the tube to the pressure sensor and the nipple to have grown so much in size that they do not fit tightly. I solved this by pushing some insulation sleeve (ripped from an old wire) over those nipple.s, this makes those connections air-tight again.
