Is there anything else we can help you with?

Removing the filter

Remove the filter unit by twisting it counterclockwise. Gently pull away from the machine.

Gently tap the filter unit to remove any excess dust and debris before washing it.

Wash the filter unit in cold water only: do not use detergent, or wash it in a dishwasher or washing machine.

Wash the pleated paper element of the filter unit first; hold the filter unit under a cold water tap with the foam element downwards and run cold water over the pleated paper. Continue washing until the water runs clear.

Wash the foam element of the filter unit next; hold the filter unit under a cold water tap with the foam element downwards so that dirty water does not contaminate the pleated paper element. Run cold water over the inside and outside of the foam element and squeeze the foam gently to expel the dirt. Continue washing until the water runs clear.

Wash the outside of the filter unit. Then fill the unit with cold water, place your hands over the open ends and shake gently. Repeat washing the elements and outside of the filter unit until the water runs clear.

Gently shake the filter unit to remove any excess water and leave to drain with the foam element end facing up.

Drying

Leave the filter unit to dry completely in a dry environment with good airflow, for a minimum of 24 hours. Check that the filter unit is completely dry.

Refit

To refit, return the filter unit to the main body and twist clockwise until it clicks into place.

The filter unit may require more frequent washing if vacuuming fine dust or if use is mainly in Boost mode.

Automatic cut-out

This machine is fitted with an automatic cut-out. If any part becomes blocked, the machine may automatically cut out.

Motor pulsating

This will happen after the motor pulses a number of times (i.e switches on and off in quick succession) and the blockage indicator will light. Leave to cool down before looking for blockages.

Before testing the machine please ensure that any hair or loose clothing is clear from the machine.

Be careful not to pull the 'ON' trigger while looking for blockages. Operating the machine while it is partially dismantled could result in personal injury.

Remove the tools

Remove all tools and accessories from the machine e.g. Wand, Cleaner head, Crevice tool etc. Please ensure the bin is empty before continuing with any checks.

Press and hold trigger for 10 seconds

Is the machine still pulsating?

Check for a blockage

Check both ends of the wand for blockages and remove as necessary.

Refit the Cleaner head, tool or accessories being used back onto the wand and connect the wand back onto the machine.

Press and hold trigger for 10 seconds

Has checking the wand handle control resolved the problem?

Is the machine pulsating?

Has the machine been fully charged to 100%?

The Dyson V11™ battery and monitoring system work together to gauge how much run time is remaining. The system calculates run time using an algorithm that ‘learns’ how your machine works over time. To get the best experience, we recommend fully charging your machine after every use. This helps the battery and monitoring system's algorithm to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.

The actual run time of your machine remains unaffected while the algorithm learns to more accurately gauge remaining power.

The battery is designed to be left on charge permanently, and this will ensure that the machine is fully charged when it's next used. It will take up to 4.5 hours to fully charge your machine. Once the battery is fully charged, your machine won't use any more electricity.

If your machine continues to cut out even though run time remains on the screen, we recommend fully charging your machine, then using it continuously until the battery runs out. This should be completed within one cleaning session, but the trigger doesn't need to be held down throughout. We advise using Auto/Med mode for this clean. The more this process is repeated, the more accurate the algorithm becomes.

Please ensure the battery is charged to 100% after every use.

The machine has three power modes for different tasks. The overall run time is displayed on the digital display screen in minutes and seconds and will vary between each of the three power modes.

The overall run time can increase and decrease depending on the power mode, floor type and tool being used. Any change to the run time can take up to 30 seconds to appear on the digital display.

Eco

Maximum run time, for longer cleans. 60 minutes run time.

Auto/Med

The optimum balance to clean all floors. 40 minutes run time.

Attach your High torque cleaner head to activate Auto/Med mode, which automatically adapts power between carpets and hard floors.

Boost

Intensive cleaning for ground-in dirt. 6 minutes run time.

Is the machine meeting the run times list below?

Please ensure the battery is charged to 100% after every use.

When the machine is placed on charge it enters an idle state, this reduces all power consumption ready for the next use. Due to this reduction in the power, when the machine is removed from charge and powered on for the first time it can display an incorrect run time. This is nothing to be concerned about. The machine will assess the charge capacity and current usage within 30 seconds, displaying the correct time on the digital display.

To reach maximum run time, the machine must first be calibrated. The machine must be fully charged approximately five times, each of the five charges, use the machine until it has no battery left.

Damp or musty

A damp or musty smell is caused when dust in the cyclone has come into contact with water.

It may not be a direct contact with water, for example when vacuuming pet hair that is slightly damp; this moisture will combine with the dust in the cyclone causing the smell.

Additionally the smell may occur if the filter goes back onto the machine wet.

Only the filter and the two washable brush bars from the soft roller cleaner head can be washed. The bin can be cleaned with a damp cloth only, and both must be completely dry before being re-fitted to the machine.

Has any part of the machine been washed?

Were all the washed parts completely dry before the machine was used?

Unusual smell

Under normal use, any unpleasant smell can only be caused by something the machine has picked up. To check each part of the machine, please select pick up issues.

If you are able to identify which part of the machine the smell is coming from, replacing this part may resolve the issue.

To minimize dust/allergen contact when emptying, encase the clear bin tightly in a dust proof bag and empty. Remove the clear bin carefully from the bag. Seal the bag tightly, dispose as normal.

Remove the clear bin

Hold the machine with the bin in a downwards position. Firmly push the red bin release button. The bin will slide down opening the bin base.

Press the red button located on the bin runner to release the bin and slide the bin off the runner.

Gently tap the side of the cyclone over a bin. This will remove any fine dust clogged up in the cyclone. Using the Combination tool, clean the shroud to remove any debris around the cyclone.

Check the opening on the cyclone shroud for any blockages. Remove as necessary
