The 2 piece premotor filter can be washed with mild detergent & warm water ensure you leave it for at least 24hrs to dry. DO NOT FIT IF WET OR DAMP,
The post motor filter can not be washed it must be replaced with new at least every 12 months.

This response is likely too late coming, however for others the problen appears to be the same as the fault with my turbine head which was that the turbine fan had become loose on its spindle. With no pressure on the brushes, friction would allow the fan to turn and drive the brushes via the belt. The faulty part is not available separately however I have repaired mine using araldite glue. Other things to check is for a worn belt. Cheers.

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. Almost certainly it is the motor gone :(. Take off the lid that is under your bin and look at the filter underneath, if it has a black underside and a kind of burnt smell you will need to put a new motor in. If you happen to live in Australia you can get a motor from NelsonVacuums.com.au here is a link to the correct page. Hope this helps.

I have made a video showing how to replace the motor on a Dyson DC08. If you follow the instructions you should be able to do it. If you find the video helpful please give me a thumbs up or a comment.
If you find you need parts for this procedure I would recommend Vacuumspot or Nelson Vacuums
Dont forget to let me know how you go!.
