Tip

Fed up having to buy new filters for your vacuum?


Over the years I've lost count of how many companies stop selling replacement filters for their long deceased production vacuum models or that filter replacements are becoming increasingly difficult to source. There are usually universal "microfilter" replacements which are easy enough to find and cut to size, but if you can't be bothered to do that, there are ways around to renew your existing filter even if the manufacturer or the user manual states that the filter cannot be washed.

You see, any filter can actually be washed - if it is a single cloth filter - as opposed to a micro pleated section of many layers sewn together. If you have such a filter, a single cloth filter which the user manual says cannot be washed, this is a blatant lie. Remove the motor filter as normal (usually found at the bottom where the paper bag goes) if it is embedded with dirt and wash under a hot tap of water with either household washing up liquid or soap. Once the filter has been completely cleaned, place the filter into a pillow case and chuck into an electric dryer on a low heat. Instead of waiting 24 hours normally for a filter to dry to room temperature, you'll cut your waiting time by a day simply by allowing the gentle heat from the electric dryer to circulate around the pillow case which holds your vacuum cleaner filter. Once the filter is completely dry to the touch and does not feel damp in any way, install back into the vacuum cleaner.

I have also done this with HEPA paper filters which apparently are not washable according to the manual, and to stop the plastic cartridges from bouncing off the walls of your electric clothing dryer/tumble dryer put an extra towel or cloth into the pillow case to minimise damage. What is then revealed is a new, dry and clean filter which can be used again instead of spending lots of money trying to source a new one.

At the same time, if your vacuum cleaner has a soft bag, take it off and put it into the washing machine to give it a clean lease of life - but you won't need to put it into a pillow case to dry in the electric dryer - simply chuck the bag in to ensure it gets dried properly before putting it back onto your vacuum cleaner.

Does dyson DC14 have a thermal cut-out? If so where is it?


Hi Michael, it's Jack at Dyson.

Yes, like most Dyson vacuums, DC14's motor is protected by a thermal cutout, which shuts the machine down if it starts to overheat. It should reset itself automatically after your machine's had 1-2 hours to cool down.

To prevent this from reoccurring we'd recommend checking your machine for any blockages in the cleaner head, internal airways, wand or hose: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc14/dc14-origin-iron/my-machine-is-not-working/machine-not-sucking-picking-up-as-well-as-usual/how-to-wash-filters/wand-suction

It's also a good idea to give the pre-filter a wash as shown in the video guide below. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for the filter to dry completely before replacing it. The pre-filter is engineered to last the lifetime of the machine in normal use, and as long as it's maintained as recommended we wouldn't expect it to need replacing.


If you'd like further help or advice from our experts after giving these steps a try, just give the Dyson Customer Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How to clean


There are 2 Filters that should be washed every 3 months. they are labeled as filter A and Filter B. They only neet to be washed with water. if you use any type of soap or cleaner it will actually damage the filters and they will need to be replaced.
Another part of the vacuum that can be cleaned is the clear bin assembly. REMOVE it from the cyclone before cleaning it. DO NOT get the cyclone wet. it will damage the machine. but again just water and a rag on the bin assy will work great any type of cleaner will actually cause the bin to get foggy.
The only other part to be cleaned is the roller brush. what i would recommed is to take a box cutter, and to cut the length of the roller. all of the hair and fibers on there. then turn the roller brush 180 degrees and cut it again. then turn the vacuum on and vacuum with it for a minute and the debris from the roller brush should be gone.

My old DC02 runs for 5 to 10 min before overheating and cutting out. Once it cools down it go backs to working. Any suggestions?


Hi there,

DC02 is fitted with a thermostat designed to protect the motor. If your machine is cutting out after a few minutes of use, you may need to wash the filters. You can view a video demo of this procedure on the Support section of our website:

It's also a good idea to check the cleaner for blockages - you can find out how to do this here:

Filters have been clogged with wet cat litter and now the vac will turn on but shuts off and wont cont to vaccume. can we clean/rinse the filter out. filter light has come on and then turns off once the...


Using a vacuum cleaner for wet cat litter??? Not a good idea at the best of times! The machine's cutting out because it's overheating. You don't tell us the make or model of your machine - some filters are washable, many are not. Your user manual should tell you. As a general rule, cloth- or sponge-type filters are probably washable, paper ones are not. If you do wash the filter, give it at least 24 hours in a warm place to dry thoroughly before re-using.

CLEANER SWITCHES ITSELF OFF AFTER A FEW MINUTES USE. IF LEFT FOR SOME TIME, IT WILL START AGAIN FINE, THEN AFTER A FEW MINUTES MORE USE , IT WILL SWITCH OFF AGAIN.


check all filters, if they can be washed do so, if not clean or replace. next check for a clog in the machine and in the hoses. the machine as a thermal device that if it senses an overload or getting to hot, the machine will shut itself off for safety resons.

This is from the Dyson web page:
Get expert help Thermal cut out Most Dyson vacuums have a built in safety system that stops the machine if it begins to overheat. This usually happens because the filter needs washing or your machine is blocked. If your machine turns off on its own, unplug it and leave it for at least an hour to cool down. Remember to check the filter and look for blockages before re-starting.
Any non- domestic use may adversely affect the filter performance such as vacuuming up plaster dust.


Sounds like your vacuum is overheating. Check the above.
