Can u wash the paper filter on a wet dry vac


You really cannot wash the paper filter. You can blow it out with an air hose if you have access to one, or vacuum it off with another vacuum. If it does get wet you should let it dry outside of the vacuum before you use it again.

Hello again.
When it says wet vacuuming, it means that the vacuum will pick up water, not dispense it. When you are using the vacuum to pick up water, you'll need to remove the paper filter element under the motor, inside the canister, to avoid ruining it. When the filter is removed, you will see a plactic ball inside a cage under the motor. It's purpose is to float up on the surface of the water being vacuumed up, and prevent the motor from getting water into it. You'll be able to tell when the canister is full; the noise the vacuum makes will change and sound higher. Also, the suction at the hose will quit. At that point, shut off the vacuum and drain the water.
Be sure to replace the paper filter when you swap back from liquids to solids.
Best regards, --W/D--

Craftsman wet dry vac no longer sucking enough to use, cleaned the filter, sounds strong but barely works??


Buy a new filter. Make sure hose is cleaned out. Sometimes if the filter is wet and not allowed to dry it will do that. Also make sure hose is on the right outlet

Not working after vacuuming water.


Your wet/dry vac came with 2 filters.
Paper for dust and dirt and Foam for wet/dry use.
If you left the paper filter on and tried to vacuum a wet surface, you most likely shredded your paper filter and clogged the outlet vent above your water shut-off float.
You should always use a filter to prevent clogging of the cyclonic impeller blades next to the motor. When extracting water or moisture you will need to use the Foam filter to prevent water from collecting in your fan blade area which then creeps to the motor eventually causing it to seize up.

Older model shop.vac parts/owners manuel


Hi, I know on my Craftsman shop vac 2 different sizes of vacs that I use, I try and stick to the craftsman filters, but you can use other brands if they are not available or you want to save some ( $ ) ? As far as a manual for this vac, more then likely you will have to go to the maker and distributor as Sears, O.C.Hardware also sell there products. You may have to go with a manual that is the same peak H.P.and gallons that covers all different makes and models. Filter wise, make sure you have the right ones on or off when using the wet or dry pick-up settings.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Do I take the filter off when I am vacuuming up wet things?


If it's a paper filter, take it off. If it's a cloth filter that can be washed and dried, leave it on. Your machine will have a float to close off the suction when the tub needs emptying. Anyway, air from the tub only goes through the turbine, not through the motor itself, so you need not worry. It's good practice to run the vac dry for a few minutes after using it wet, just to make sure the turbine's dry.
