10 Steps to Clean Your Dyson Air Purifier Filter


1. Check your manual: Different Dyson models have different filter types and cleaning requirements. Always refer to your manual for specific instructions.

2. Unplug and switch off: Before handling the filter, ensure your purifier is off and unplugged to avoid any accidents.

3. Locate the filter: Identify the location of your filter based on your model. It's usually behind a magnetic or latching cover.

4. Remove the filter: Carefully remove the filter following the instructions in your manual. Avoid touching the filter's filtering surfaces as much as possible.

5. Pre-wash (optional): Some models recommend tapping the filter gently to remove loose dust before washing. Check your manual for specific instructions.

6. Rinse the filter: Wash the filter under cold running water only. Never use hot water, detergent, or put it in the dishwasher or washing machine.

7. Squeeze gently: While rinsing, gently squeeze the filter to remove trapped dirt and water. Repeat until the water runs clear.

8. Air dry thoroughly: Place the filter upright in a well-ventilated, warm area away from direct sunlight or heat sources. Leave it for at least 24 hours until completely dry.

9. Reinstall the filter: Once the filter is completely dry, reinsert it carefully into your purifier following the manual's instructions.

10. Reset filter life (optional): Some models require resetting the filter life indicator after cleaning. Consult your manual for specific steps.
