Having problems with your Dyson DC07 Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum ?
I am wooried that my filter will rip if I wash it. Is this possible?
Soak it, wring it, repeat. They're very durable. Just let them air dry, don't use heat to speed things up.
Very unlikely to rip if you wash it as instructed. If it does rip, that would suggest it has lost its capacity to work as a filter, so you need a new one anyway

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.

The filter gives red light.Does this mean the filter must be washed or changed. How should it be washed, what does ''washable'' mean here?
Red light normally denoted filter is blocked. If it is a washable filter then wash it. If it liiks like a paper type filter, replace it. Washing it will make it clog up even more. ... Electrolux Oxygen Z5540 Pet Lover Vacuum

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?

Also when i vacuum it, everything that i vacuum gets washed back in the pool when its on the filter position.

One way or another, dirty air is by-passing the cyclone. My best guess is that when you emptied the clear bin, a seal has dropped out (or become displaced) and the base of the clear bin is no longer sealing properly against the bottom of the cy ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi, A few days ago I bought a Philips hairdryer (HP4935/22) & have used it only twice. Somehow when I used it this morning some of my hair got caught in the filter at the back of the dryer & the motor slowed down & I think overheated & stopped. Normally the filters come off but I don't think this one does. I haven't turned it back on so as not to possibly damage it even more. I am quite upset as I really love this hairdryer. It's quiet, light, small, powerful & does the job brilliantly. I h

I have a nearly 9 year old Electrolux Excellio Z5228 vacuum cleaner. It has recently started cutting out during operation.

I washed the gore filter (output from motor to clean the exhaust air) as per instructions, then let to dry. It was very clogged but now very clean. The vacuum clearner still cuts out often.

I have a Panasonic MCE6003 vacuum cleaner. I regretfully leant it to a neighbour and it came back full of dog hair and keeps cutting out. I cleaned out the dust container and the main filter but it still kept cutting out after 5 minutes. I decided to unscrew the part with the motor and wash the filter inside.It was all going well until a large rubber washer bit, a piece that looks like the thermostat and a little white button attached to two black wires fell out and now I have no idea how to put

Took my miele canister vacuum cleaner in for repair because the cord had a break in it creating a short. He said it also needed an inter filter ($12.29) and the carbon brushes were worn out ($21.95). Is that possible? Also wanted to service the motor and put in a new seal ($49.95) Shouldn't that include the inter filter and carbon brushes?
Depending on the age of the vacuum and how much use it gets, the first two are possible. I would question the brushes as they should last for several years.\015\012The servicing is generally for labor only and doesn't include parts. I do reco ... Miele Vacuums
