Using your vacuum

  • Eco mode

    Designed for everyday cleaning of hard floors and surfaces, Eco mode is engineered to deliver the optimum balance of power and run time. Press the Power button to turn the vacuum on and activate Eco mode.

  • MAX mode

    Maximum power, with a shorter run time. For intensive spot cleaning of futons, sofas and carpets. Press the Mode Change button when the machine is working to switch MAX mode on and off.

  • Cleaning the 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. Watch our video for a step-by-step guide.

  • Washing the Micro Fluffy™ cleaner head

    Removing fine dust from the Soft roller brush bar maintains its effectiveness. Detach from the cleaner head, and wash in cold tap water until the water runs clear. Make sure it's completely dry before refitting. Our video guide shows you how.

  • Checking for blockages

    If your machine detects a blockage, the motor will pulse six times. You won’t be able to use your machine until the blockage is cleared. If this happens, remove the wand, bin and cleaner head and clear any blockages you find. Watch the video guide to see how.

Cleaning the washable parts

Many parts of your machine can be easily cleaned using a lint-free cloth. This helps to maintan performance by preventing a build up of fine dust. Our video guide shows you how.

Replacing the battery

With your machine unplugged from the charger, the battery can be replaced using a small Posidrive screwdriver. Watch our video to guide you through the steps.

  • Cleaning the filter

    Your filter captures fine dust which can build up over time and reduce performance. But by cleaning it at least once a month, you can help maintain suction power. Follow the video guide, or step-by-step instructions below.

  • 1. Turn off your machine

    Disconnect your machine at the wall socket and twist the top to remove your Dyson filter.

  • 2. Remove excess debris

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

  • 3. Rinse filter

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

  • 4. Give it a gentle shake

    Fill the filter unit with water. With one hand covering each end, shake it gently to ensure all trapped debris is released. Repeat this step until the water runs clear.

  • 5. Leave to dry for 24+ hours

    After washing the filter, leave to dry for at least 24 hours with the wider end positioned downwards.

  • 6. Maximize airflow

    Leave your filter in a warm place with plenty of airflow until completely dry. This could be beside a fan or open window. Avoid drying the filter in a tumble dryer, microwave or near a naked flame.
