IT looks like the part number is 429704-56 and the Dewalt site shows list price being $51.68. You should be able to order that filter at a DeWalt dealer in your area, hopefully for a discount.

Otherwise, there is here online:

My shop-vac stopped mid-job with no warning


Maybe it over heated or the hose was jammed. Unplug it for a few minutes, check the hose for any stuck debris, then plug it back in. Shop vacs also come with a filter. If the filter is too dirty, it might have shut off as a safety precaution to not cause a fire. Follow directions to clean the filter. Hope this helped. Dee

Acorns in top of Shop-vac


Leave it outside for the squirrels and mice to remove the acorns. It is unlikely the acorns passed through the filter and fans. Can you see them to know they are in the top of the vac?

Using shop vac 52722-90 for wet applications


yes, the foam filter is what you should use, also make sure you remove any bag, or paper filter, the water would make it fall apart.

When you use the shop vac for cleaning up water you must remove the filter.

The filter is for dust particles not for water
I would replace your filter and dump the water out from the shop vac, Also after each time you vacuum up water dump it out of shop vac.

I hope this helped you happy new year!
