Filters may need to be cleaned if the vacuum is not picking up dirt, if airflow is restricted, or if you notice lighter or no suction. To maintain optimal performance, tap filters clean periodically and wash them according to the regular cleaning schedule. Rinse the pre-motor foam and felt filters every month, or as needed. 1. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged. 2. Remove the dust cup and pull the foam and felt filters out from the top of the pod. 3. Rinse filters thoroughly in cold water until the water runs clear. DO NOT place filters in the dishwasher or washing machine. 4. Squeeze out excess water and let filters air-dry completely for at least 24 hours before replacing. 5. When filters are completely dry, reinstall the felt filter first, then add the foam filter on top. Rinse the post-motor HEPA filter every 12 months, or as needed. 1. Make sure the vacuum is unplugged. 2. Remove the dust cup by pressing the button on the dust cup handle. 3. Press down on the top of the filter door, then tilt the door and lift it out. 4. Remove the HEPA filter cartridge and rinse under cold water, dirty side down, until the water runs clear. 5. Allow the filter to air-dry completely for 24 hours. 6. Once the HEPA filter is dry, reinstall it. Insert the bottom into the pod first, then press in the top until it clicks into place. 7. To reinstall the filter door, insert the bottom into the pod first, then press in the top until it clicks into place.
If you see any hair wrapped around the self-cleaning brushroll, continue cleaning to allow the brushroll to remove it. We recommend extending cleaning time using the setting II (Carpet) on bare-floor surfaces to allow hair to make its way to the dust cup. If some fibers or string remain wrapped around the brushroll after continued use, carefully remove them.
The dust cup should be emptied each time you vacuum and periodically during cleaning, when it appears full. For optimal performance, empty the dust cup before debris reaches the MAX FILL line. 1. Press the release button on the top of the dust cup handle. 2. Tilt the dust cup and lift it away from the vacuum body. 3. Hold the dust cup over the trash and press the bottom door release button on the front of the dust cup. The bottom lid will drop open. 4. Tap gently to empty contents. 5. Close the lid, pressing it until it clicks into place. 6. If needed, turn the dust cup upside down over the trash and press the top door release button. 7. Tap gently to remove contents and wipe the interior of the dust cup clean with a soft cloth. 8. To reinsert the dust cup, install the bottom into the pod first, then press in the top until it clicks into place.
