Question about Dyson Slim DC18 All Floors HEPA Bagless Upright Vacuum - Iron/Titanium/Yellow
I just realized there is a HEPA filter at the bottom of the canister. How do I cean that filter?
If it is one that can be washed instructions will be in owner manual or even on the outside of the ring that holds it in place, did that recently for a friend and if air is blocked there low or no suction and in some cases unit will shut off and seem to have total loss of power, motor overheats and thermal relay or breaker trips.
The unit had marked it could be washed in soap and water in the sink, look for instructions as if not meant to be washed it could be ruined.

Called Dyson today about the cyclone canister clogging in my DC17 Animal. Turns out it's a problem with the black rubber gasket in the bottom of the canister. This also causes the HEPA filter to get lots of dirt and debris on top of it. They are sending me a new Cyclone canister with the corrected gasket. This will prevent anything but small particles of dust from entering the top of the cyclone and the HEPA filter should no longer collect all that stuff. Hope so!

SOURCE: remove hepa filter
Turn the Dyson on its back as if you were servicing the beater brush and on the RH side you'll see the filter housing for the HEPA and a T-15 Torx screw. Remove this screw and then remove the cover for the HEPA filter.
