Question about Dyson DC14 All floors Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
I washed my filter for the first time yesterday. It has been 6 months. The yellow bit with the white screens still looks dirty. And the water was never dirty or cloudy even, while running through it. Did I do something wrong? The new one looked so bright white compared to the one I was cleaning. I'm afraid the performance will start to suffer since it did seem to pick up better when I put the new one in.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
It could well be that your Dyson is blocked elsewhere. Check the pipes, especially the feeder channels and the air way inspection channels on the Dyson as well as the main dirt channel after the rolling brush bar. Also brush clean the shrouds on the inner cyclones as these get notoriously clogged.
If the filter is washable it wont come up white like new unless you try a stain detergent like a pre stain remover. It would have to be heavily diluted as water is really the only way of cleaning a Dyson filter, but it also has to be of the washable type; Dyson produce a few filters, but some are not washable. EBay usually have good cheap replacements available but I'd check the first points first of all before filter replacement.
