SOURCE: Motor overheating

Had the same problem 2 years ago. Washing filters only a short-term solution. After contacting Dyson, they replaced the shroud and cyclone under warranty. This cured the problem from July 05 until last week, when the motor has started to overheat again and cuts out on the high temperature safety trip. Mine is out of warranty now, so am unsure how to proceed. Maybe buy the parts they sent me before, but reckon they'll be expensive.

SOURCE: How do I remove the washable filter to clean it on my Dyson bagless vacuum?

As you are looking down at the base of the machine (viewing from the front) you will notice a yellow button on the right side just inside of the the wheel area. push up the button to release the casing that holds the hepa filter and the spongy filter. You can see a diagram on your machine which shows this process. After you take the casing from the machine, the round housing which houses the 2 filters will come out of this casing as you pull it off. You can grab the spongy filter and pull it our of the casing. Rinse both filters as shown in diagrams on the side of the casing. Do not use soapy water, just warm water and squeeze out the spongy filter after each new soaking. Let the filters dry for 12 hours and then replace in your unit and enjoy the refurbished air movement. It does suggest that you clean these filters every 6 months.

i wouldnt, it usually soaks the dirt into the filter, try using a shop vac with a dust brush attachment that is the easist and cleanist way to do it.

One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. Check that all the seals are undamaged and in place, especially the big black ring at the bottom of the yellow bit inside the clear bin.  Also check that the bin base closes tight after you've emptied it.
If this doesn't help, please post a response and I'll try again.  If it does help, please remember to rate me!

SOURCE: 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.

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.

How many filters does a dyson dc07 have


Hi there, the DC07 has 2 filters. A pre motor washable filter and a post motor filter which will be either a simple pad (like thick cloth) or a Hepa filter (about and inch thick with a plastic housing). The post motor filter should not be washed but the pre motor filter can. As a technician I would recommend replacing every couple of years for best running of your vacuum. The post motor filter is under the clear bin, you can lever the cover off with a small flat blade screwdriver. The washable filter is to the right of the post motor filter inside a removable housing.

The filter gives red light.Does this mean the filter must be washed or changed. How should it be washed, what does ´´washable´´ mean here?


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.

I have a DC04 and when i switch it on it works for 10-15 mins thens stops working for about 20 mins then starts working again.


Your vacuum is overheating - that's why it cuts out. You need to check everywhere possible for blockages and also make sure the washable filter is clean and dry. If the machine has been run without the washable filter in place, then the exhaust filter will be clogged and will have to be changed too.
