DC27 All Floors - Post Motor Filter
« on: December 28, 2011, 06:57:14 PM »
Hi everybody

I have a Dyson DC27 All Floors with a burn't out motor which will need a new post motor filter. The post motor filter & housing are different from the Animal version which has a washable filter. Anybody know the Dyson part number for the All Floors  filter (not listed on the Dyson website), if any other post motor filter is interchangeable e.g. DC04, DC07, DC14 etc. and where the cheapest source of a new genuine or pattern part is? 'Buy Spares' list one at around 15. Most other online resources just list the 'Animal' washable version probably because it is more 'user serviceable' and the other one is perhaps a lifetime HEPA type?

Anybody got any thoughts on the matter or info?

Hi there

I am answering my own question. The post-motor filter is different to the types fitted to DC04 DC07 & DC14. It is larger and is exactly the same size and shape as the washable post-motor filter in the DC27 Animal. It is however, not a washable filter and must be intended as a lifetime unit because the DC27 manual downloadable as a PDF file from Dyson Medic only mentions washing the pre-motor filter every 3 months. I am not sure it is HEPA rated nothing on it to indicate so. It looks like pattern ones aren't available yet so if yours has been trashed by a burnt out motor you will have to spend the 15 to get a new one. Hope this is of use!!

After market ones are available. However, they are also 15 when postage etc is added.   :coffee:

You can wash the HEPA filter up to ten times on a DC27 Dyson say. See here: http://dysonmedic.co.uk/dyson-dc27-change-wash-filters/

Hi, thanks for the info. Who makes/supplies the aftermarket post motor filters for the DC27 All Floors? Usually aftermarket stuff is cheaper otherwise not much point in producing it?

The link you have added refers to the Animal version. The All Floors post motor  filter does not appear to be a washable type. However, it is a thick item not a removable pad in a cage set up so I think it is intended as a lifetime unit?
