Yes. The following site shows the filters and which is used for what. Due to potential motor damage, I wouldn't use it without the proper filter.

I have the Dyson Kinetic Big Ball Animal and it smells so bad of wet dogs. There are no filters to clean and it stinks the whole house out. I will never buy a Dyson again. Please help!


Don't blame the vacuum, blame the dogs for getting wet. But seriously, you may have to make a heavy application of disinfectant spray inside the machine. Aterwards, the entire house will have the delightful odor of disinfectant but at least the wet dog odor will be gone.

Put wet filter in dyson DC35 will not run will it dry out


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The filters in our handheld machines should be washed at least once a month using cold water without detergent. However, they should always be allowed to try completely before they're replaced, which may take at least 12 hours. It can help to place the filter somewhere warm - for example, by a radiator, or in an airing cupboard.

Unfortunately, if you have used your machine with a wet filter in place, this is likely to have caused damage to the motor. Using your machine with a wet filter will also have voided the machine's 2-year guarantee.

I would encourage you to get in touch with us directly so we can confirm which replacement parts you may need to get the machine running again. You can reach our customer Helpline on 0800 298 0298 (UK), or 1-866-693-9766 (US).

Best wishes,

Jack

I did not get a manual with my vac. I am trying to soak up water from a water tank leak and water seems to go right trough the vac and water is coming out the blower hole. the tub is not full.


There is a special sock that you need to buy for it. You can run the paper filter if your in a pinch but after that one time, that's it, that filter is ruined.
The paper filter is for dry vacuuming, the foam filter is for wet vacuuming, You have to have one or the other in place.
There are two ways to snap the cover onto the basket, only one is the right way.
Look to see that the baffle is facing the hose inlet hole.

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.

Using shop vac 52722-90 for wet applications


yes, the foam filter is what you should use, also make sure you remove any bag, or paper filter, the water would make it fall apart.

Bought house. Inherited shop/vac. A bit old, but


If you are going to use the wet vac to remove water, be sure to remove the bag inside the canister first. Also, some wet vacs have an internal float that has to be installed, but that may not be the case with yours.

Dust blowing right back into the air


You need to check the filter and make sure it's on all the way. To do this take the top off the vac, make sure the filter is all the way up and in place. There should be a plastic nut to hold it in place. If you are using it for fine dust particles such as drywall dust, you need a special filter for small particles. The filter that comes with the vac just won't do it!
