Red light normally denoted filter is blocked. If it is a washable filter then wash it. If it liiks like a paper type filter, replace it. Washing it will make it clog up even more.

How do I fix the machine - the filter keeps popping making me stop vacuuming several times per use.


Contact Dyson and ask if there is a fault with this type of cleaners air filters. They may send you a new part to fit if there is s known fault.
Any of the washable filters have to be left for a few days to dry in normal weather before they are fully dried out before the unit can be used again. If possible try and hang them up on a washing line to allow the free flow of air to dry the filter.

When my dc59 is on boost it starting and stoping


Hi Paul, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59's motor is engineered to make a pulsing noise to warn you if something is preventing airflow from passing through the machine. This could mean the washable pre-filter is overdue for a wash, but could also be caused by a blockage in the floor tool, wand or bin inlet.

Following the simple steps shown in our video guide should help you resolve this:


I'm confident that washing the filter and removing any obstructions will get your DC59 up and running again. But if you would like some further help after giving this a try, just call the Dyson Customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How do you clean the filter?


Hi, it's Allie from Crucial Vacuum!

Many units nowadays include a washable reusable filter. If your unit's filter is washable, it is very easy to do so.

First, start by unplugging your unit before removing the filter. Make sure not to use your unit without the filter this can permanently damage your vacuum. After removing the filter, you may want to step outside to gently tap off the dirt from the filter and avoid the dirt to be spread inside your house. Using cold-lukewarm running water, rinse the outside surface of your unit's filter, do not use soap. Allow your filter to be air dried for 24-48 hours before placing it back into your vacuum. Using a damp filter may also damage your unit.

If your filter is NOT washable, it will be adversely affected if you wash it and it is better if you replace it instead.

I need to know if the filter in my vacuum cleaner is washable?


What I have found over time is that even if a filter is marketed as being washable it really means that the material will not be damaged by water. The key difference here is that it won't necessarily be cleaned better by washing. Electrolux sell a lot of washable filter for example but what i find is that washing only sets the dirt as mud. The problem is that the pores of a filter are incredibly small and water does not dislogde the particles. Remember that in the normal run of things the suction power of the vacuum is actually wedging dirt into the pores.
The best way to clean a filter like that is with an air compressor but it is very messy. Generally speaking a filter will be past it's best after a year or so of usage. My advice is air compress or replace but don't wash.

Flashing lights.


The Flashing lights indicate several different things. 1 flashing red light means its time to charge your unit. if it is still flashing after charging then you will more than likely need to change the battery. A flashing red and green light means that the unit is overheating which could happen if the filters need to be washed, or that there is a blockage or if your machine has been left in direct sunlight. Allow 1 hour for machine to cool down. 3 flashing lights indicated that the pre-filter has been put on incorrectly. I hope this helps. If you do decide to wash your filter dont use any type of soap it is not needed and allow fiter to dry for atleast 24 hours. putting a wet or damp filter in will damage your machine.

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.

Can I wash filter in water


I haven't seen one, do you have an air compressor? You can blow it out.
If it's plastic it should be washable, if paper--no

I use air on my Eurika.

Hoover Light on


ALTHOUGH MOST FILTERS SAY WASHABLE THEY DO STILL NEED TO BE REPLACE AS WASHING THEM SHRINKS THE FILTER AND EVENTUALLY CLOSES THE AIRWAYS. WHICH ALSO IF NOT REPLACE WILL OVER HEAT MOTOR IN MACHINE AND CAUSE MOTOR FAILURE.

Washable filter is getting clogged with dog hair


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.
