    Nordyne Electrostatic filter cleaning

    The "soak and rinse" method doesn't seem to get all of the grit off the filter (can still wipe fine particles off metal blades with rag). I've heard it is OK to place the filters into a dishwasher. Is that true, and will it help get the filters sparkling clean again?

    Thanks

    Ditch the Paul Harvey filter ,before it kills the compressor.

    Really not a good thing.

    Is this a washable plastic mesh filter (1" thick) or a powered electronic air cleaner with a high voltage power supply?

    The powered electronic air filter. Has metal mesh pre-filters and then high voltage powered "plates" that collect the dust.

    wash i in the dishwasher, being careful not to break the ionizer wires.

    I tried mine in the dishwasher once, and was not impressed. The method I use now is to spray them down with Simple Green, let it sit for 5 minutes, brush it down with a paintbrush, soak it in a hot washtub for 10 minutes, brush again, then rinse. gets them sparkling clean every time.

    Hmm.. Simple Green. Might need to give that a try.

    Thanks
