Questions & Answers

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

Does this filter fit an older model E43484 6 gal Ridgid?
Asked by: JB
I’m not sure I would take the unit to the store with you to see if it will match

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.

3-Layer Fine Dust Pleated Paper Filter for 5.0 Plus Gal. RIDGID Wet Dry Vacs is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 344.

I like it because the filter stays ON, where with another brand of vacuum with only a plastic ring holding the paper filter, it would fall off from time to time, and before I knew it, there was aload of fine dust in the air. This type of pleated filter is much better because it stays in place and does anexcellent job of filtering the fine wallboard dust. Thank you.

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.

Until it clogs, it works great to minimize dust. We shake it out as need it and go again. Probably could be more efficient if we hosed it daily, but after vacuuming approximately 80-100lbs. of concrete dust, it still works satisfactory after shaking out every 10-20lbs.

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.

Only used paper filter for dry use. Used to clean up plaster/sheetrock dust and it filters the dust very well. Had to clean it several times each use due to the amount of dust. I could tell by the sound and suction when the filter needed to be cleaned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from as expected Filter is as expected. brand name Ridgid (NOT the knock offs that are sold on other websites) Love that you can wash and re-use. Using in a construction project with lots of fine dust, have washed and re-used about 30 times. Its now loosing its shape a bit but still works just fine.

Worked well for vacuuming basement after I dug out a lot of dirt for french drain. With the regular filter, a lot of the dirt just came out through the exhaust - just a big cloud. The only downside is the price.
