How does the Kärcher wet and dry vacuum cleaner filter cleaning work?

How do you replace a cartridge filter (WD 2 – WD 3)?

How do you replace a flat pleated filter (WD 4 – WD 6)?

How do you put a filter bag in Kärcher wet and dry vacuum cleaners (WD 2 – WD 6)?

How do you store the hose on the Kärcher wet and dry vacuum cleaner (WD 3 – WD 6)?

Thanks to the integrated filter cleaning function, dirty filters in all top-class devices in the WD 5 – WD 6 range can be cleaned quickly and efficiently by pressing the filter cleaning button. This means you can work with consistently high suction power even for difficult cleaning tasks.

Dry, wet, coarse or fine dirt – it doesn't matter! The floor nozzles, developed in-house, guarantee perfect dirt pick-up, impress with optimal sliding behaviour and can be quickly and easily adapted to wet or dry dirt. With the switchable floor nozzle, the changeover is carried out conveniently using the foot switch. The special floor nozzles guarantee all-round cleaning satisfaction.

Dry vacuum cleaning

For devices with a foam filter (WD 2), we always recommend additionally using a filter bag.

For devices with cartridge or flat pleated filters (WD 3 – WD 6), a filter bag should be used when vacuuming fine dust. For other applications, it's no problem to vacuum without a filter bag.

Wet vacuum cleaning

When vacuuming liquids and wet dirt, we recommend vacuuming without a filter bag. Foam filters, cartridge filters and flat pleated filters are not damaged by wet vacuum cleaning.

If necessary, clean the foam filter and cartridge filter under running water. Do not rub or brush it. Allow the filter media to dry fully before using them again.

The Kärcher wet and dry vacuum cleaners are not suitable for vacuuming ashes. Cold ashes can be vacuumed using an ash pre-separator, or you can use a Kärcher ash vacuum cleaner.

The different Kärcher models have different filling capacities, so the maximum filling capacity depends on the device model. If the maximum filling volume has been reached, a float closes the vacuum opening, which stops vacuuming. The device does not switch off automatically, but runs at an increased speed. Switch off the device immediately and empty the container.

Details of the minimum and maximum wattage of the power outlet can be found on the device power outlet.

Cordless wet and dry vacuum cleaners

The battery-powered and powerful wet and dry vacuum cleaners from Kärcher ensure thorough cleaning where corded wet and dry vacuum cleaners cannot reach or in areas that are difficult to access – in the car, under the carport, in the summer house or on garden paths; all the while providing the same functionality as a corded device. No cord, no limit. The WD 3 Battery with a large 17-litre container and the WD 1 compact battery in a compact, portable design.
