We get a lot  of Dyson's in our workshop with clogged filters often they have not been cleaned for a few years but I find the biggest problem is that most people forget about the exhaust filter in particular the hepa one .

When ever we get a Dyson with a burnt out motor we often find the hepa filter is completely clogged

This filter traps the finest particles and needs cleaning regularly

Yes, it is a bit misleading that Dyson describe them as "lifetime filters" -- which they clearly are not.

Yes will who's life time. you could argue that since the machine is burnt out its life time is over and there for they did last the life time of the machine. ;D

I wash them and it works just fine

When should they be changed? How often?
