Why do some Dyson hepa filters have carbon dust on the top of the filter?

All post filters get carbon dust on them. The carbon brushes are always wearing down in use, and all that has to go somewhere

It's why post filters never come clean when washed, the carbon stains them. You can wash them clean (pads you can anyway if their not too ruined) but they will always be stained black. If the motor is good it will take a long while, I've had dysons back a year down the line for something that I've put a new motor in, and the post filter is usually just starting to go a bit grubby, but not black.

I meant like some Hepa filters have bad seal allowing carbon dust to escape.

Are the seals on properly? Many people fit the without seals but when they do they just donít do it 100% right, the seal has to sit exactly around the perimeter of the filter

The newer Dysons have much better filtration anyway. Better seals and better filters
DC14s are tanks, just need a slightly longer motor life. Do plastic parts often break on DC14s? Nope. DC41- Sexy looking futuristic and powerful machine. Just needs a better designed cleaner head wheel and cyclone clip along with a dense metal rod in the chassis.
