Filters may need to be cleaned if the vacuum stops picking up dirt, if airflow is restricted, or if you notice lighter or no suction. For optimal performance, clean filters regularly. Between cleanings, lightly tap filters over a trash receptacle to remove dust and debris as needed. Rinse the fabric filter once monthly, or as needed.
To access the fabric filter, first eject the dust cup, then press the filter release latch to remove the filter housing.
Press the finger tabs on the orange frame of the filter to gently remove it from the filter housing.
Rinse filter with water only.
Allow filter to air-dry completely (at least 24 hours) before reinstalling.
To reinstall, slide the filter back into the filter housing back into place, then close the dust cup. Rinse the cyclone filter in the dust cup every 12 months, or as needed.
Repeat above steps to remove the fabric filter.
With the dust cup open, lift out the cyclone filter by pulling the wire handle. Wipe the cyclone frame with a damp cloth.

Reinstall the fabric filter by sliding it back into the housing. Press the housing back into place, then close the dust cup.
