2. The HEPA dust container filter and foam filter are dirty and need to be cleaned

To maintain optimal performance, clean the HEPA filter each time you empty the dust container. The HEPA dust container filter is attached to the dust container. The dust container foam filter is placed behind the HEPA dust container filter. Both filters can be rinsed under the tap. Let the filters dry completely before you put them back.

3. The HEPA exhaust filter is dirty and needs to be cleaned

The HEPA Exhaust filter needs to be cleaned every 6 months. If you clean the filter with water, you can rinse it under the tap up to 4 times before you have to replace it with a new Philips HEPA exhaust filter. The filter needs to be replaced every 2 years.

The HEPA exhaust filter can be found under the HEPA exhaust filter grille.
