The filter in the Dyson cordless vacuum cleaners are designed to capture microscopic particles. Over time these particles can build up and reduce performance. By washing the filter(s) at least once a month, it helps to maintain optimal performance, the suction power of the vacuum and should prolong the filter life.

Instructions on the filter maintenance, including a step-by-step guide, can be found through the below resources. 

  1. The machine user manual
  2. Dyson’s online support
  3. Dyson official YouTube channel
