I have a Kenmore canister vacuum. Need to install new Hepa media filter. Which way does it go in? What direction should the black arrow point? Up or down?

Having to change the filter on a Vacuum can be rather challenging. While you are waiting for an expert to reply I recommend to reply back to this thread with a detailed model number to your Vacuum. which will allow your expert to reply with a detailed answer.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to know which direction to install the filter.

You always put the filter in with the arrows pointing the direction of the air flow.

The filter arrow should be pointing out on this model.

I have given you a picture of the proper filter replacement procedure.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
