Answer: 
The cap and tightener are not included. The newer filters do not need the cap just the tightener. The newer filter have a what i describe as a rubber cap already molded to the filter.

Answer: 
I couldn't find reference to WR4000 anywhere. There is a VF4000. If thats the one you need it has a built in flexible rubber cap on the end of it. All you need is the nut and your good to go.

Answer: 
All our filters including the VF4000 now have an integrated rubber cover on one end thus customers no longer need a separate filter plate or cover. The new filters are available at Home Depot stores, over the phone through Customer service at 1-800-474-3443 options 1, 3 and 1 or on-line at www.ridgidparts.com using this link http://ridgidparts.com/accessories/vacfilters.phtml.

Since this is a paper filter I'm pretty sure you cannot wash it. I just blow mine out about once a month.

Answer: 
These aren't really made for washing, since they are paper. However, I remove them when I'm not using them. Then you can use a brush to scrape dust and dirt from between the ridges or just cover your face and eyes and whack it on the floor.
If you are using the filter as instructed, you shouldn't need to wash it, just dust it off.

Yes, there is or should be a sponge filter in place of the paper one. I used the vacuum as at wetvac once and regretted it; the vac was a terrible mess and I would have had less clean up if had just used a mop and pail.

Answer: 
No, this style is not washable. The pleats can, however be vaccumed out, and this
does prolong the life of the filter. There also are filters for sale at Home Depot, that
are washable, to use in these vac's.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 210 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Simple fix for troublesome lawnmower Item is an air filter for Techumseh engine on a Toro lawnmower. 1. it was the right one 2. You had it in stock 3. The store was close by 4. It was a whole lot better than the one I took off (pictures below) Mower run perfectly after installing; life is great! July 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Filtered Hard to accurately rate since the cost of the filter was one-third the cost of my entire wet/dry vacuum. This was the lowest cost option, though, which means I'll be replacing it again at Christmas unless it's cheaper to buy a whole new vacuum setup September 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Filter it does what filters do and that's good! I thought it looked a little flimsy at first but it is doing the job. September 6, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Filter for 16 gallon Ridgid Shop Vac. The Ridgid Shop Vac filter is an excellent product that will last many tears when used with the pre filter that filters out most of the dirt and dust associated with wood working and other shop work. Mt previous filter lasted for over 10 years. August 23, 2016
