You dont have to but its a good idea to leave it and dry it afterwards by letting it drip dry in sun after shaking it out. They should offer a foam sleeve part similar to what is used in canister steam cleaners...keeping an extra filter on hand is a good idea

My son accidentally sucked up some water with my dyson animal and now it has stopped working. Is this permanent or will it come back ?


It depends how much water and how long the motor was run after sucking up water. If it was just a little water, most of the water should have been caught in the dust compartment. If there was enough water that it was able to suck it past the filter and into the motor it could cause motor failure.

Hoover not sucking


Remove all filters and try the suction on your hand, NOT THE FLOOR!
Filters are vital to keeping the motor working.
Most vacuum sucking probs are a result of a clogged filter or filters. Sometimes, hoses also. Or a full bag.
Remove all filters, clean them thoroughly, check hose for obstruction.
Use another vacuum to remove dust/dirt (or an air compressor) from the dirty filters.
That's first step.

I love the shampooer, but now will not suck up the water


User's Guide states you should clean the filters after each use. Check your User's Guide for the 2 filter locations. They are easy to get at one under the water tank cap (looks like a screen) and the other is located under the Flow Indicator (the cap unscrews). Good luck. More questions?

Blows out mist when sucking up water


You have to keep the sponge like filter in, it collects that mist and drips inside.

My shop vac is not sucking anything only blowing air out of the open hole where the hose should go if I wanted to blow something. I want it to vacuum not blow out. The filter sleeve and dry cloth are...


I just had the same problem, the vac wouldn't suck in. Turned out to be because the filter was WET. It works great when I take the filter off before sucking up water or liquids! Not sure if this applies in your case, but definitely something to keep in mind. : )

Shop vac sucks water for a few seconds then it spits it back out


Don't use the paper filter for sucking water. It can ruin it. It will still be usable if you just set it out to dry but there is no reason to use it for water in my experience. I have a sears shop vac and it will fill up more than half full without ejecting the water.

My steam cleaner want suck the water up


This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter. Also make sure that the lid is on correctly and not loose one end.

Won't suck up the water


This happens when the filter on the inside of the lid for the dirty water tank is pushed all of the way up. You need to leave a 1/4 in. gap from the top to the top of the filter. Or the lid for the dirty water tank is not locked down all the way around.
