This is a common question asked of almost every vacuum tech. In most cases yes it can be washed. For best results if it is fibre or paper, dont wash it get a can of compressed air like you would use for a computer and blow it out. if it is any other material just drop it in the dish washer on delicate cycle and be sure to let it dry for a couple days before reinstalling it.

Just had my dc24 for 6 weeks - decided to wash filters - do the filters stay in their plastic covers? They were a bit dirty but no visible dirt came out when i washed them 9in their plastic casings). Surely they will take ages to dry.

I had used Dyson DC08 to **** out a wet car carpet. A few days later when using the V/C, there was a burning smell. Subsequently I washed the flexible hose, changed the pre-filter and post filter , but I wrongly put the pre-filter in the spot for the post filter. When the V/C was next used, there was again a burning smell and sparks. The filters were switched, but the V/C would not re-start. What shall I do?

Our Bissell Cleanview II 3576M does a great job except that the filter cup below the dirt cup gets full very fast and the dirt cup barely has anything in it. To clean the whole house, I have to empty the dirt cup and clean the filter several times. It didn't use to work this way. It seems like something is missing, a gasket or seal maybe? I don't think dirt, hair and debris should be going straight to the lower cup and bypassing the upper. I looked at the user guide but can't see why it's happen
