Dyson Hepa filter; can I clean it?
I’m not sure, but the ordinary filter and filter holder on ours say “rinse in cold water and leave to dry”.
That doesn’t do much, so if I’m doing a 40C wash, without fabric conditioner, I bung them in and they come out really well. The dyson pulls the carpet off the floor again.Posted 7 years ago
I have come to the conclusion that only the one filter can be cleaned. Will consider stripping the whole caboodle down at the weekend. It wouldn’t be so bad but one cat has that thing where he pulls his hair out so every morning there are new clumps of moggy fluff littering the lounge and the vacuum ain’t picking them up at the moment.Posted 7 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
My DC05 has two filters: a washable one that basically looks like a sponge and the non-washable HEPA one that is a concertina of fine hairy papery stuff. From memory the HEPA is on the outflow so it doesn’t really get that dirty. I’ve replaced it once in 10 odd years.

If you decide to get a new HEPA from dyson then check out their pet care kits too!
I stripped down my dyson and must say having seen its innards can confidently say that their ‘exclusive technology’ is all marketing and hype.
I’ve stripped mine too – but I didn’t have a suitable wind tunnel and airflow analysis system to test whether the cyclonic action was genuinely “exclusive” 🙂Posted 7 years agoPiefaceMember
One of the tests from the dyson website is to take the platic bin off that the cyclone sits in and put your hand over the tube that goes to the motor (thus removing the cyclone from the equation) and plenty of suction. At a guess the cyclonic action makes a small differencePosted 7 years ago
