As you are looking down at the base of the machine (viewing from the front) you will notice a yellow button on the right side just inside of the the wheel area. push up the button to release the casing that holds the hepa filter and the spongy filter. You can see a diagram on your machine which shows this process. After you take the casing from the machine, the round housing which houses the 2 filters will come out of this casing as you pull it off. You can grab the spongy filter and pull it our of the casing. Rinse both filters as shown in diagrams on the side of the casing. Do not use soapy water, just warm water and squeeze out the spongy filter after each new soaking. Let the filters dry for 12 hours and then replace in your unit and enjoy the refurbished air movement. It does suggest that you clean these filters every 6 months.

SOURCE: Motor overheating
There is a filter on top of the motor as well. You will need to remove the plastic cover on top of the motor with a small screwdriver or other flat blade. On the front, you push in the clip and pull up ont he cover. On each side of the cover there is another clip - to pop those you put your flat blade into the angled tab and slide it around to the clip until it pops. Gently or you'll break the tab. Once the cover is off there is a purple tab in the center pull up and you will pull the HEPA motor filter out - similar in shape and size to the side, washable, filters. Clean or replace that.

Immediately above the right wheel (looking at the machine from the front) there is a short length of curved pipe. Lift this pipe upwards, with a slight forward rotation, and the filter housing will come out with it. Be sure to follow instructions for washing the filter, and especially for drying it before putting it back. If you put it back when even slightly damp you risk turning it into a solid lump and you'll have to buy a new one - you'll also get the motor damp, which is a generally bad idea!
Good luck. If you need more help, lust ask!

I have a Dyson Animal Absolute and a rescue white american eskimo dog and two tabby cats.
We found white hair on top of the washable filter and called Dyson to fix it. There shouldn't be anything on that filter.
The Dyson rep said:
Check the black rubber seal that surrounds the "cyclone" holes as it may need to be pushed down because it isn't sealing properly.
To do this remove the cannister and dump out the stuff in there. Do it outside so the fluff doesn't circulate in the house.
Turn the entire filter part upside down so you can see inside.
Check the seal that is at the bottom of the entire filter part and look at the two half moon "nozzles" that **** up the dirt.. now make sure the black rubber band that surrounds those two nozzles is either up or down... do this then vacuum a bit.. check the washable filter to see if it is clean...make sure the rubber seal actually is sealing.. it should just set into place once you have it done properly.
Now if this doesn't fix it, call Dyson, the number is printed on the front of the machine.. and give them your serial number which is located behind the removable cannister. The machine has a 5 year warranty.
