Watch the quick-start video
Our video shows you how to assemble and set up your vacuum, so it's ready to use.
Using your machine
Press the power button to turn your machine on and off.
Brush bar control
The brush bar can be turned off if needed. We recommend doing this for delicate floors or deep pile rugs.
Lean to clean
Lean the handle back to start cleaning – this activates suction through the cleaner head. With the vacuum in an upright position, suction is directed to the wand for use with your accessories.
Your Motorbar™ cleaner head has three settings that allow you to adjust the level of suction. Giving you optimum performance across a variety of floor types.
Cleaner head settings
Slide the suction control to suit the floor type you're cleaning.
Left position - for use on deep and medium pile carpets and delicate flooring.
Center position - for low pile carpets and large debris.
Right position - for hard floors and ground in dirt.
If your machine is hard to push, slide the suction control to the left.
Our accessories add even greater versatility. Each can be attached to the wand or directly to the hose to suit the task at hand.

Maintaining your machine
How to empty and clean your clear bin
To maintain suction, empty as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker. The clear bin can be cleaned to remove dust build-up, which helps optimize performance.
Why it's important to clean your filter regularly
The filter captures microscopic dust, which can accumulate and affect performance. Help maintain suction by washing the filter at least once a month, or more frequently if used heavily.
How to wash your filters
1. Remove filter A
With the bin detached from your machine, push up the clip on the front of the bin handle and lift up to access the filter in the center of the cyclone.
2. Wash filter A
Wash your filter under a cold tap until the water runs clear. Squeeze and twist with both hands to remove excess water.
3. Remove filter B
With the side of the ball housing the filter facing upwards, unscrew the lock in the center of the ball and lift off the filter cover. Twist the filter counter-clockwise until it is released and lift it off your machine.
4. Wash filter B
Remove the inner part of the filter. Wash the outer filter in a rotating motion. Wash the inner foam part of the filter, taking care not to squeeze it. Repeat until the water runs clear. Tap the outer filter to remove excess water.
5. Leave to dry for 24+ hours
Dry your filters in a well-ventilated, warm place for at least 24 hours. Place filter B with the open end facing down. Your filters must be completely dry before you put them back into the machine, or it could damage the motor.
6. Refit your filters
Drop filter A back into place and close the handle, making sure it clicks shut. Refit the inner part of filter B and place it back onto the ball. Twist the filter clockwise until it clicks into position. Refit the filter cover and turn the lock until it clicks securely into the closed position.
How to check the cleaner head and base for blockages
Remove blockages and debris from the cleaner head and base so your Dyson vacuum technology can work to its full potential without interruptions.
How to check the wand and hose for blockages
To sustain powerful suction when using your Dyson vacuum, clearing the wand and hose from blockages will allow you to deep-clean effectively.
How often should I clean the filter?
This will usually be around once a month, but may be more frequent if you use your machine more heavily. After cleaning the filter, always leave it to dry for at least 24 hours. You must ensure it's completely dry before refitting. We recommend following the cleaning instructions and cleaning by hand. The filter is not suitable for dishwasher use.
Can I use this machine with an extension cable?
No, the use of an extension cable is not recommended.
