Re: my filter is buzzing but no water is going through
I have this issue with my filter when I unplug it. Occasionally, I can hit the side of it a few times and it will work. The issue is that something is blocking the inside and preventing the impeller blades from spinning freely. To fix the issue I usually do three things:
I remove the bottom pipe from my filter and tap it on the ground to free the blockage.
I also run water from my sink through it to clean it out.
Lastly, I use Q-tips to try to get in there and remove the gunk (I have a small filter).
Time Spent? I have spent anywhere from 5 minutes to an 1 hour cleaning out the filter with the above techniques. Advice: Change your filter cartridge every 2 weeks or when it's covered. Don't unplug it if you can help it! Best of Luck!

My guess is that some of the sponge has got into the drain pump. Open the filter at the bottom of the machine and clear it. Beware water will come out onto the floor when the filter is opened. The burning smell may be the pump motor or you could be lucky! Hope this helps.
is filter sponge coz water on it will act like a choke is on and over fuel !? if yes then remove it and take sponge off its frame and wash in petrol to clean out water and dirt , squeeze dry and towel dry , then lightly coat filter with oil and replace on bike !
In sponge filters water is forced through porous foam. Water flowing though the sponge allows the growth of a colony of beneficial bacteria which neutralizes toxic ammonia. Most sponge filters uses two sponges attached to one lift tube which is an advantage that the sponges can be cleaned one at a time, reducing bacterial loss.
There are 2 filters on your dc08 the one that is under the bin is sold as being lifetime which I strongly disagree with. I work as a vacuum Technician and I would strongly encourage you to buy a new exhaust filter every 2 years. The filter at the top of the machine can be washed in normal tap water. The filter is in two pieces, the blue sponge part can just be squeezed like a kitchen sponge the other part with the colored plastic casing can be gently scrubbed with a toothbrush or similar. It is important to remember that the more often you wash the sponge part the less often you will need to was the cage. If you need to buy a new Dyson washable filter because yours won't come clean they are only $20 so just visit NelsonVacuums or VacuumSpot and have one delivered.
The air filter should be connected directly to your carburetor.It should just be a sponge in a container connected to the carburetor.On most mowers it is one screw to remove the cover.You remove the sponge,and clean it with soap,and water.Dish washing liquid should work fine.squeeze all the water out of it.then soak the sponge with motor oil.then squeeze out most of the motor oil.The motor oil traps the dust.Then put your slightly oily sponge back in its holder,and close it up. Your done.
Sponge filters should be washable. I have found that "FLASH" lemon floor cleaner is by far the best, but washing up detergent will do (far too many bubbles to get rid of for my liking!). I find pouring the detergent onto the sponge and working it in before dunking it in very warm water works best. Despite not being very washable, most paper filters can be washed if you have no other choice and you take care. Just pour on cleaner and then dunk up and down in hot water. Then leave in the airing cupboard for a couple of days to dry. It should get you by until you can find somewhere to buy a new paper filter.

Do the directions mean to wash the black sponge or the actual filter? Is the sponge part of the filter or is it trash? Filter F27 Dirt Devil Purpose Cleaner for Pets Upright Bagless Vacuum Model #1LY2108-000 Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Typically the top filter of which is the sponge is washable but the HEPA filter is not, it can be brushed off and vacuum off with another vacuum, but the best filtration is to replace the HEPA filter and to wash the sponge filter, if the sponge filter get to bad then replace the sponge filter as well.
