Are the unofficial ones any good? I have acquired a DC40 but it was really dirty - I don't think the filters had ever been washed - and after washing them the air doesnt smell great when I hoover!

    Yes the washable one on the V6 is about £2 on e bay works perfectly. But you must wash monthly.

    Some good vids on youtube showing how to strip down enough to give it a good clean, there is a lot more than just the filters that hold smells.

    Possibly, dyson's have been surpassed long ago though so no reason to pay official. Maybe get something useful later and carry on with other filters. Though unless you have killed the filters why just not wash again (check for holes)?
  • I have a V8 Animal dyson, I bought a spare filter from amazon as the official one gets clogged up within a few days and takes forever to dry. The unofficial one works fine - but it does start sounding different when it needs cleaning unlike the official one as that just starts to cut out the hoover to make you aware it needs cleaning.
