Fully charge before first use
It's important to fully charge your new machine before using it for the first time, and after every clean. This is because the battery and monitoring system's algorithm 'learns' over time, and fully charging your machine helps it to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.
How to use your machine
Understanding the three cleaning modes
The optimum balance of power and run time.
Up to five minutes of run time. Designed for intensive cleaning on ground-in dirt.
Maximum run time for longer cleans all around your home.
Choosing the right tool for the task
Direct drive cleaner head
Pushes stiff nylon bristles into carpets to capture ground-in dirt.
Mini motorised tool
The motorised brush bar tackles hair and ground-in dirt in tight spaces, like your stairs or car.
Tackles dust and allergens in hard-to-reach places, such as gaps and corners.
Two tools in one, for versatile cleaning. Its stiff nylon bristles are tough enough to remove ground-in dirt.
Soft dusting brush
Designed for vacuum-assisted dusting. Soft bristles lift dust and allergens from delicate surfaces.
Maintaining your machine
Washing the filter
There's a new way to wash the filter. See how to do it quickly and easily.
Emptying the bin
The 'point and shoot' bin emptying mechanism easily and hygienically ejects dirt. Watch how to do it.
Regularly wash the filter
It's important to wash the filter regularly, to maintain optimum performance. The screen will remind you when it's time to do this.
Don't overfill it
To maintain suction, keep an eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker.
Setting up your charging dock
You can use the charging dock to store your machine, so it's always to hand and ready to go. See how to set it up.
Frequently asked questions
Can I leave my vacuum on charge?
The battery is designed to be left on charge permanently, and this will ensure that the vacuum is fully charged when it's next used. Once the battery is fully charged, your machine won't use any more electricity.
Should I fully charge my vacuum after every use?
We recommend fully charging your machine after every clean. This helps your vacuum's battery and monitoring system's algorithm to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.
Does the screen use up the battery?
The LCD screen only uses up to 1.5 watts of power, which won't noticeably impact run time.
Does this machine connect to the Dyson Link app?
Your machine works independently and doesn't connect to the Dyson Link app.
How often should I clean the filter?
The screen on your machine will remind you when it's time to clean the filter. This will usually be around once a month, but may be more frequent if you use your machine heavily.
What's the difference between Auto mode and Med mode?
Both modes provide the optimal balance of power and run time. Auto mode only works with the High Torque cleaner head to automatically adapt between different floor types. Med mode is displayed instead of Auto mode when all other tools are attached.
How do I change the screen’s language?
Press and hold the selection button beneath the screen for between 5 and 10 seconds to view the language list. Then press the selection button to scroll through the list. When you reach your preferred language, press and hold the button for between 2 and 4 seconds. If you've selected the wrong language, press and hold the button when the cross is displayed to return to the language list. Or to confirm the language, press the button to scroll to the tick and then press and hold.
