    Top Filter Continuously Becomes Clogged

    Posted
    MrDJ

    I own several Dyson vacuum cleaners - floor models and hand held units (all purchased from Best Buy) and all of the ones with the lavender top loading cartridge filter are just simply crap, as these filters continuously become clogged; thus, the machine will only run-stop-run-stop. Though these hand-helds are very handy and great to use for touch-ups, they do not do well for pet owners...even for those with small terriers which do not shed heavily. BTW, fully charged run time was never an issue for me. Dyson customer service has even supplied me with additional filters, but they too easily and continuously clog. Washing/drying them (as instructed) will allow the unit to only run for a few minutes and then once again it's run-stop-run-stop...bah! My older Dyson hand-helds (non-top mounted cartridge filter type) always works without issue. I will never again purchase a Dyson V6 or V8 hand-held vacuum...which I always eventually pass-on to those family members without pets...cheers.

      Hi there, this is Krystal with Dyson. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the Dyson V6 Top Dog. We appreciate your loyalty and are sorry to hear this about your vacuum. The Dyson V6 includes a pre filter that should only need to be rinsed under cold water once a month. It is meant to capture very small particles and therefore, shouldn't be clogging so easily.

      We would value the opportunity to address this in more detail. Feel free to contact us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and we will be happy to help.

      Best Wishes,
      Krystal

    Very happy with this purchase. Bought it mainly for cleaning around my cat's litter box, but found it very convenient for any places where a our Roomba can't go: corners, stairs, book shelves, windows, around the fireplace... It is not as powerful as bigger dysons but that is also somewhat of a plus, I can clean a box of say nuts and bolts from dust without sucking in all the metal pieces. It is a very handy device. If anything negative, I find the battery capacity a bit short of the expectation, it is sufficient for one job, but then you need to charge it. Other than that, excellent choice.

    Great, with drawbacks

    Powerful and useful but there are two drawbacks. It gets clogged with packing peanuts, paper, small plastic bags, and general dirt and has to be unclogged often. I tie a thick wire around a handle and use that or a slim pen from my pocket. It can get clogged in several places. Also it would be better if it worked wired too. It's wireless which is convenient but requires charging fairly often and won't work while being charged. It has good attachments and strong power and a reasonable capacity for a hand held but could have been better designed in regard to the clogging and charging issues.

    Best Portable Hand Vacuum we've owned

    This is a very handy and powerful hand vacuum, as you'd expect with the Dyson logo. We use it regularly for spot cleanup and corner cleaning with our pugs hair. Is it perfect? No. It has a short battery life, blows air straight back at the user, and is a little expensive. If it broke today, I'd shop other models from Dyson to see if some of these issues are handled better. If they aren't, I'd replace it as is with the same model. So not 5 stars, but satisfied with or purchase.

    I had another brand of hand held vacuum and wasn’t very happy with it. My kids have the battery operated vacuum with the long extension to allow them to vacuum their floors standing up. Loved the way it worked, so I decided to give this one a shot. Very pleased with the suction and ease of use. The only down side is when it is running the exhaust tends to hit you in the face if you’re holding it in a certain position. But everything else is great!

    Second Dyson V6 series portable vacuum purchased, having the motorized attachment is a good feature. 100% compatible with accessories designed for the V6 series. The newer Dyson V7 Trigger series includes the motorized head as default. Battery life on the newer model is slightly longer as well. Best Buy sale price at the time was the determining factor in deciding to purchase the V6 Top Dog since it was substantially lower than the V7 trigger retail price.

    I own a few dyson uprights and love them, so I figured I'd try the handheld out. The battery life on this unit is horrendous, I couldnt even vacuum my whole car on one charge. I bought this 6 days ago and now it wont charge. When plugging the cord into the unit it is loose and does not make contact. I returned this and grabbed a shark pet plus 2 for $55. In a nutshell, dyson has mastered the upright vacuums, but the handhelds are a disaster.

      Hi Dixout4harambe. Thank you for taking the time to provide a review on the V6 Top Dog. The V6 is a great cordless for in between cleanings, quick clean ups or small areas as it does feature 20 minutes of constant suction in standard mode and 6 minutes on MAX power for tougher jobs.

      While we understand that you may have already returned the machine, we would value the opportunity to discuss your experience, If you were not getting the specified run times Please contact us at askdysonUS@dyson.com and we will be happy to help.

    BEST HANDHELD EVER

    I brought this while on sale over Christmas and couldn’t be happier. I had the first handheld version DYSON made and was pretty unhappy with the time of operation and even suction power. I was a little hesitant but the sale was really good so I gave it a last try. This thing is awesome... battery time has vastly improved and the suction power is great. I would absolutely but another one.

    I’ve gone through a couple other handhelds that were basically expensive doorstops after a couple uses. This one rocks the Casbah. It does a great job getting the pet hair off the furniture and makes vacuuming the stairs easy peasy. You have to work quickly, because the charge goes fast, but if you’re cleaning up the hair daily - you should have lots of time.

    Horrible suction and charge

    I have a regular dyson vacuum that I use for the house and that I lug to the garage and normally use the accessories to clean the car. I decided to buy this so I wouldn't have to kept moving my bigger vacuum around. This is NOTHING compared to a regular dyson. The suction is a joke and it ran for less than 5 minutes on a full charge. I returned this the next day. Definitely would not recommend.

    Suction is great and it’s handy to have around the house... very lightweight and helpful. But the battery life is so short, and it takes so long to charge that it inhibits it’s usefulness. E.g. “That corner looks a little dusty, let me get the hand vac. Never mind , it’s not charged so I’ll do it in three hours. Forget it, I’ll just grab the broom.”

      Hi Andrew, this is Krystal with Dyson. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the Dyson V6 Top Dog. I am pleased to hear you are satisfied with the weight. The V6 is great for in between cleanings, quick clean ups or small areas as it does feature 20 minutes of constant suction in standard mode and 6 minutes on MAX power for tougher jobs as advertised. While it does take 3.5 hours for a full charge, it doesn't have to be fully charged if you want to do some spot cleaning.

      If you are not getting the specified run times, please contact us at askdysonUS@dyson.com,
      include your name and contact information, and we will be glad to assist. We look forward to hearing from you.

    This is an excellent product that outperforms other handheld vacuum cleaners. We use it on our carpeted stairs and it picks up more dirt and dust than our larger vac cleaners. It is lightweight and easy to use The only minor negative point as other reviews have noted is that the charge only lasts for about 20 minutes. But it does the job better than expected.

    I absolutely LOVE this Dyson Top Dog hand held vacuum. It is extremely convenient to use it for quick clean-ups especially those hair balls from both my long hair cat and dog, even on high pile carpet on the stairs. There is a lot of power in this unit and the battery charge lasts a long time. I am very happy with this purchase and highly recommend it to anyone.

    The battery life is rather short but give the power of the suction, this is a great cordless hand vac. I had a mishap in my car with some kitty liter spilled in the trunk. It picked it all up. I just may get a second one to use in the car :) We originally bought this for pick clean-ups of cat hair and it works great on the furniture and carpets.

    Great vacuum, small and portable. Great for stairs, furniture, and my favorite, the car. I was told I couldn't go wrong with a Dyson product, and It doesn't disappoint. Although pricey it was worth it. Comes with several attachments, which is what makes it so versatile.

    I must start by saying that I had got mine when they had it on sale for about 180$ before taxes, but it's worth the full price very much so. It's simply the best vacuum for the size. Awesome product, portable, small size and very powerful, doesn't lose suction, easy to clean and you can use it anywhere you want.

    I own a Dyson standup vacuum which is excellent and I wanted a handheld one for the stairs, couch, etc.... (we have cats). This vacuum is really really good just not great. Only concern is that the pet hair can get stuck in the canister and it may be difficult to empty.

    We bought this as we got a new puppy and he's all over our couch and house. Wanted something small but powerful and this is perfect. It only does about 10 minutes on maximum suction but that's plenty for us to do a couch and chair or a whole set (13 steps) of carpeted stairs

    Use it almost everyday, and it’s been a great vaccum. Battery life is pretty limited especially on max mode, but that is expected. Wish it came with a floor attachment, but that can be found separately too if you decide you need it later.

    After my traditional (with cord) hand held vacuum failed, I decided to try the Dyson V6 Top Dog Cordless Bagless Hand Vac. So easy to handle. Be sure to read to instructions in order to get the most time from a "charge". Plan to charge after a cleaning task so it is ready for the next job.
