Maintenance

Maintaining your machine

Watch our video guides on how to keep your machine performing at its best

  • Cleaning your bin

    You can maintain suction by emptying the bin before debris reaches the MAX line. The bin can also be fully removed from the machine for cleaning.

  • Checking for blockages

    If your machine detects a blockage, the motor will pulse six times to let you know. You won’t be able to use your machine until it's cleared. If this happens, remove the wand, bin and cleaner head and clear any blockages you find.

Changing the battery

With your machine unplugged from the charger, the battery can be replaced using a small Posidrive screwdriver.

Washing your filter

Your Dyson Humdinger™ vacuum has a washable filter. We recommend washing it once a month to maintain optimum suction power.

  • Filter being removed from vacuum.

    1. Turn off the power

    Remove your vacuum from the docking station and twist the filter counterclockwise to remove it from the body.

  • Loose debris being shaken from filter into the bin.

    2. Remove dust and debris

    Tap your filter unit lightly on the side of the sink or in the bin, to remove any loose dust and debris.

  • Filter being rinsed under running water.

    3. Wash the filter

    Wash the filter with cold tap water, gently squeezing the water out with your hands. Avoid using detergent or washing in a dishwasher or washing machine.

  • Filter held in two hands over a sink.

    4. Gently shake

    Next, fill the the inside with water, cover both sides with your hands, and shake lightly. Wash until the water is clear.

  • Filter placed on flat surface to dry.

    5. Dry for at least 24 hours

    Allow the filter to air dry in a warm, well-ventilated area for at least 24 hours with the wide mouth facing down.

  • Filter drying on a flat surface.

    6. Let it dry completely

    Your filter must be completely dry before you put it back into your machine, or it could damage the motor. Avoid drying in a tumble dryer, microwave or near a naked flame.

FAQs

Frequently asked questions

We recommend washing your filter once a month, or more frequently if you use your machine heavily. Simply wash with cold water and ensure it's completely dry before reattaching. The filter is not suitable for a dishwasher.
