The Dyson DC14 is a prized weapon in your cleaning arsenal. Maintaining it routinely and replacing worn or damaged parts is crucial to its operation. Your DC14 has two filters. One of these is a washable filter and is located at the head of the cyclone assembly. The second is the HEPA post-motor filter. While the HEPA post-motor filter is designed to last the lifetime of the machine, circumstances may conspire to prove otherwise. Learn to replace this filter and keep your DC14 running strongly.

  1. 1

    Check that your Dyson DC14 is unplugged. Press the cyclone-release button and detach the bin from the rest of the machine. The cyclone-release button is the same button you push when removing the bin for the purpose of emptying it.

  2. 2

    Set the bin aside. Note the area on the vacuum upon which the base of the bin sat. This is the cover of the HEPA post-motor filter.

  3. 3

    Insert a flat-blade screwdriver beneath one of the three latches on the sides of the cover and carefully pry off the cover.

  4. 4

    Remove the cover and HEPA post-motor filter inside. Dispose of the old filter.

  5. 5

    Insert a replacement HEPA post-motor filter into the filter housing. Reinstall the cover with each of the latches aligned. Push down firmly on the cover to attach.

  6. 6

    Place the bin back on the vacuum. Push the bin handle back toward the vacuum to lock the bin in place.
