Does this filter fit an older model E43484 6 gal Ridgid?

Can this filter be washed?

The manual states that the VF500 is "made of high quality paper". Paper is generally not a washable material. Please clarify the washing endurance of the filter. Does Rigid offer a truly washable filter composed of synthetic materials that will withstand repeated washing?
Asked by: Retired
It will shorten the life drastically. There is no reinforcement on the inside and the filter nearly collapses. One of the layers on the inside partly washed off. If you want to wash filter get the Gore.

I bought this filter because it was not in the box with the16 Gal. 6.5-Peak HP Wet Dry Vac. The package also did not include the Qwik Lock Filter, Crevice Nozzle, or Muffler/Diffuser although clearly marked on both the packaging and Owner's Manual. I purchased a VF5000 (Fine Dust Filter) and a VF7000 (Wet Filter) from Home Depot.

This is a huge improvement over the basic filter, well worth the extra $ to purchase it. I have replaced my regular old vacuum with the Ridgid, having added the necessary extra attachments to the hose end. It’s the best house vacuum I’ve ever had, carpet is cleaner than ever, and the filter made the biggest difference of all.

This product worked well and fit great for a tight seal to protect the motor. The rubber retainer end works well and holds the filter in place. Easy to clean, I usually toss them on the ground outside of course and this will loosen the caked on dust to the filter.

With lots of very fine sheetrock dust from a major remodel, the regular Ridgid filter just was recirculating dust throughout the house & a real nightmare!!!! This filter has really helped tremendously & is doing the trick!

I bought this product specifically because it was supposed to be for fine dust and I clean out a lot of chimneys. The first chimney that I cleaned out I filled the customer's house with dust. Very disappointed.
