Hi, I'm Helen from eSpares.

One of the most common causes of loss of suction on a Dyson is clogged or damaged filters. So I'm going to show you how to change them on this Dyson DC25.

There are two filters: the first is the pre-motor filter, located in the cyclone assembly. This is a washable filter - Dyson recommend that you wash it once every 3 months. Just give it a run under the tap, and then wring under the tap and leave it to dry for 24 hours. If this gets really dirty, or starts to deteriorate, you'll want to replace it. You might also want to have a spare handy so when you're washing this one you can still use your cleaner.

The second filter is the post motor filter and this is located in the ball so we'll just need to remove the door to get at it. This is also a washable filter. Dyson recommend you wash it at least once every 3 months. Give it a run under the tap and a good shake and then repeat that 10 times and then leave it to dry for 24 hours.

You'll want to make sure that this is absolutely dry before you replace it because you don't want any moisture getting in next to your motor. It's really important that you keep this filter very clean because, if it gets clogged, it can cause the motor to overheat and cause damage to the internal parts.

Filters for this Dyson and all other Dysons are available on the eSpares website.

Thanks for watching.
