The easiest way to wash this is to put it in lukewarm / to the touch warm tap water in a basin and drop in some washing up liquid/dish liquid as this is one of the more gentler cleaning agents you can use. Leave it for a few hours without doing anything. Rather than use a brush which can tear the paper pleats/folds, inspect the filter to see if it has been rid of dust then use your fingers to gently widen the pleats to ensure all the dirt is gone.

Sadly for this type of filter it is near impossible to get it looking white again. However in lieu of letting it room dry for 24 hours (sometimes the JC0208-000 can take up to three days until it is bone dry)
Slip the filter into a pillow case and put into an electric tumble dryer. Select a low heat and check every 30 mins to see if the filter has dried.

Dont forget to rate this, thanks.

Tip

Bissell Bagless Upright Vacuum not working


If your Bissell upright vacuum cleaner is not cleaning like it did when it was new, then you need to provide a bit of maintenance or service. I will tell you how you can do this maintenance to your Bissell vacuum.

First, make sure that your floor vacuum is unplugged. Then you can work safely on your Bissell bagless vacuum.

If your Bissell upright vacuum is losing suction, then the next thing to check is the canister. It is very easy to simply forget to dump the canister.
The while you have the canister out, check the filter inside the canister to make sure that it is not plugged full of dirt. This filter can be difficult to access, but a little persistence will pay off. When you get the bottom of the cup open and remove the filter, use a bit of soapy water to wash out the filter. You can then reassemble the filter into the bottom of the canister.

On the left side of the vacuum there is also a HEPA filter Bissell has there to help filter the air even more. Remove that, clean it also and replace it.

The hose is the next thing to check. You can completely detach the hose from the vacuum. Check the hole at the bottom where the hose hooks up to make sure the hole is not plugged. Then stretch out the hose and run something like a coat hanger through it to make sure that there are no obstructions inside the hose. You should be able to hold the hose up to a light and see right through it.

The last thing to check is your Bissell vacuum belt. If the belt is too loose it will slip and not spin the brush properly. Bissell belts can be purchased online easily, or in many grocery stores. If your Bissell upright cleaner has a slipping belt, it may also be because of strings, carpet pieces, etc… getting wrapped around the brush. Remove the vacuum brush and cut off everything that is wrapped around it. Always be careful of the vacuum belt after you have just used your vacuum. The belt will be very hot just after use.

These steps will help you to get your Bissell upright vacuum cleaner working like new again.

Is overheating and shuts off


Your filter is clogged. Open the tank. Unscrew the filter. Slide the casing off the filter. Brush out the collected dirt. If it's really clogged you can wash it, but use warm water to break up the packed dust. I wouldn't wash the inner filter more than once or twice. Make sure it's completely dry before you reassemble it. Easier, but more expensive, replace the filter.

No suction in upright vacuum.


it could be the filter or on this unit, one of the other 2 filters. The most common overlooked filter on this unit is the filter in the pull out tray under the bagless container. I would suspect that is the culprit cutting off your suction. Pull it out and wash the filter, wash the other 2 filters in your unit as well. Warm water and soap, little bit of bleach to kill the smell and LET THE FILTERS DRY BEFORE PUTTING THEM BACK INTO THE UNIT. I cannot stress that part enough.

Good luck!!

How do you clean out the filters on the DC17?


You only have to wash the filter that is underneath the canister - take it out, wash it in cold water and leave it out to dry for at least 24 hours. This filter is blue (or gray when it is dirty) and has the number "6" on it.

The other filter in the machine is a lifetime filter and if you wash it you will damage it and you'll have to buy a new one.

HEPA Filter
Posted by jenski66 on Jul 02, 2008
My vacuum came with a sponge over the filter and the directions said I could wash the filter. Do the directions mean to wash the black sponge or the actual filter? Is the sponge part of the filter or is it trash?

Hello,
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Typically the top filter of which is the sponge is washable but the HEPA filter is not, it can be brushed off and vacuum off with another vacuum, but the best filtration is to replace the HEPA filter and to wash the sponge filter, if the sponge filter get to bad then replace the sponge filter as well. Or, you can check with your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to contact the manufacturer’s website and or phone #. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.
