Maintaining your machine

Why it's important to clean your filter regularly

The filter captures microscopic dust, which can accumulate and affect performance. Help maintain suction by washing the filter at least once a month, or more frequently if used heavily.

How to clean your filters

  • Filter A being removed from the cyclone assembly

    1. Remove your Dyson filters

    Lift the filter out of the cyclone assembly (filter A). Twist and remove the filter at the back of your machine (filter B).

  • Filters being tapped over a sink

    2. Remove excess dust

    Tap your filters lightly to remove any loose dust and debris.

  • Filters A being washed under running water

    3. Wash filter A

    Hold under running water and squeeze gently until the water runs clear. Squeeze and twist filter to remove excess water.

  • Filters B being washed under running water

    4. Wash filter B

    Wash the inside under cold, running water. Repeat until the water runs clear. Firmly shake the filter until no water comes out.

  • Filters left to dry in a well-ventilated space

    5. Leave to dry for 24+ hours

    Dry your filters in a well-ventilated, warm place for at least 24 hours. Place filter B with the open end facing up. Your filters must be completely dry before you put them back into the machine, or it could damage the motor.

  • Filter B being refitted to the machine

    6. Refit the filters

    Screw filter B onto the back of your machine, rotating clockwise. Push filter A back into the cyclone assembly.

Emptying and cleaning the clear bin

Overfilling the bin can reduce suction and affect performance. To maintain suction, empty as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker. Cleaning the bin removes dust build-up and helps optimise performance.

Removing blockages

Your machine will pulse and then stop if there's a blockage. Our video shows you how to check and remove debris.

A full charge takes up to 4.5 hours.

Yes, the battery is designed to be left on charge, to ensure your vacuum is ready for the next use.

We recommend charging your machine after every clean to maximise run time.

Your machine will pulse to alert you if there’s a blockage.

This will usually be around once a month, but may be more frequent if you use your machine more heavily. After cleaning the filter, always leave it to dry for at least 24 hours. You must ensure it's completely dry before refitting. We recommend following the cleaning instructions and cleaning by hand. The filter is not suitable for dishwasher use.

We’ve re-engineered the Dyson Motobar™ cleaner head to include de-tangling technology. While it still powerfully sucks up dust and hair from all floors, we’ve added a de-tangling comb that automatically clears hair from the brush bar.

The de-tangling comb on the brush bar has 56 polycarbonate vanes to prevent tangling around the bristles. The comb is always in contact with the brush bar as it spins to prevent wrapping, so hair is sucked straight into the bin.

Your machine works independently and doesn't currently connect to the Dyson Link app.
