Question about Dyson DC16 Root 6 Bagless Handheld Cyclonic Vacuum
Hi David, it's Jack at Dyson.
We'd advise against dismantling DC58 any further than is shown in the User guide. This could cause damage to your machine not covered under guarantee - meaning any replacement parts needed could be chargeable. However, you can wash the lifetime pre-filter following the steps shown in the video below:
We recommend washing the filter at least once a month, using cold water without detergent. Make sure the filter is totally dry before replacing it, which could take at least 24 hours.
To clean any fluff or debris from the mesh shroud, press the red bin base release catch once to open the bin base. Then with the base still open, press the same red catch firmly a second time:
You can use a dry cloth or a soft brush to remove any debris from the mesh shroud.
It's normal for harmless static to cause fine dust particles to cling to parts of the bin, cyclone pack and behind the mesh shroud. This dust will not affect performance as the airflow doesn't need to pass through this. You should find tapping the cyclone pack gently when emptying the machine will help dislodge any clinging particles.
I hope this helps, but for further advice you can call our experts directly on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

THANK YOU for this information, Jack! I always have a bit trouble understanding Dyson's "no words" user guides. Removing the clear cylinder to clean the mesh shroud inside has always been a hassle and this was just the information I needed! Thanks again.
