Hi Nancy.

Thre are 2 filters on the DC4.
The first is A one piece filter which colud just be circular pad or purple plastic hepa filter this filter fits directly on top of motor.
To fit this remove the wastebin & vortex head from machine now look down on top of machine you will see A circular cover with fins on it remove this & this type filter goes in there.

The second filter will be yellow plastic frame which has circular foam insert inside it the foam is normally blue & can be pulled out so you can wash it.
This filter fits directly on top of vortex unit, To fit this filter push button near handle on the top of wastebin & vortex the lid of vortex will open you wil see A ring of holes the filter goes in here shut the lid & thats it done.

It has torx head screws you will need a set of them to take it apart the screw driver type will work better than the bits because they are recessed.
