Support for your
Dyson Digital Slim™ vacuum
You can quickly get up and running with our step-by-step guide.
Fully charge before first use
For the best experience, we recommend fully charging your machine, and any additional batteries, as soon as you open the box and after every clean. This is because the battery and monitoring system's algorithm 'learns' over time, and fully charging your batteries helps it to more accurately calculate and display remaining run time.
Using your machine
Understanding the three cleaning modes
The default mode for your machine. Up to 40 minutes of run time, for longer cleans all around your home.1
The optimum balance of power and run time.
Designed for intensive spot cleaning, with up to five minutes of run time.
Choosing the right tool for the task
Engineered for hard floors. Sucks up fine dust and large debris simultaneously. 40% lighter and smaller than the Fluffy™ cleaner head.

Mini motorised tool
The motorised brush bar tackles hair and dirt in tight spaces. Like sofas, chairs or your car.
Light-pipe crevice tool

How to swap your click-in battery
To swap your battery, press the red battery release button and pull the battery away from the handle. Then replace it with an additional click-in battery. We recommend alternating and charging all click-in batteries regularly to prolong battery health.
Maintaining your machine
From cleaning the bin to washing the filter, our quick guide will help you keep your machine working at its best.
Washing the filter
We recommend washing your filter once a month, for your vacuum to perform at its best. See how to do it quickly and easily.
Washing the Slim FluffyTM cleaner head

Emptying and cleaning the bin
To empty the bin, remove the wand and push the red lever to eject the dirt. The bin is easy to remove and clean, simply use a damp, lint-free cloth. See how to do it.
Cleaning the Light-pipe crevice tool
It's quick and easy to wash the Light-pipe crevice tool. Watch the video to see how.
Regularly wash the filter
It's important to wash the filter regularly, to maintain optimum performance. The screen will remind you when it's time to do this.
Don't overfill it
To maintain suction, keep an eye on the bin and empty it as soon as debris reaches the MAX marker.
