great! I had an extra filter in a package of filters I bought and couldn't for the life of me figure there that one on top of the motor went. I haven't changed it since I bought the cleaner 2 years ago!

My motor filter is now almost completely black. Is that normal?

Am I missing something? Isn’t the conclusion a little premature? The filter in the back, are we able to clean it or not? A couple of YouTube videos on the subject say not to clean this filter. When my vacuum is under load and they close off the suction I immediately have a loss of suction power and loud suction noise out the back. Basically it is losing almost all the suction power out the back when the vacuum is under load. This happens regardless if I have the filter in or out so I can’t imagine cleaning it will make much difference. I have cleaned all my other filters. Other than that the vacuum sounds like it’s working well. I can’t find any other information on the topic. This is not happen to anyone else? Thank you for any help and also if you could clarify if we can clean the filter in the back or not as well that would be great. My apologies if this was already mentioned somewhere in the video earlier on. May want to include it at the end when discussing that particular filter anyways?
