you should follow the manual's instructions, but I ususally go by a visual inspection. looks dirty? time to change. probably not the best way, but it's good enough for me

I change my filter 2 times a year. I have no pets, so that cuts down on the need to change filter. If I notice the suction decreases, I change it. I have had my Bissell vacuum for over 5 years and it's still running strong.

I have had my EasyVac 3130 for a year, use it at least a couple of times a week, and noticed recently it was not sucking as well.   Opened it up and noticed that the inner HEPA filter was pretty much clogged up (underneath the outer HEPA filter foam ring).  I cleaned out in between the grooves with a small flathead screwedriver and it worked better.  You can't wash it because it is paper.  So I ordered a new one.

Even if you have the filter indicator I would clean the washable ones once a month.  The HEPA should be replaced every six months.  If you don't like to wait for the filters to dry after you rinse them, then just buy an extra set.  That is what I do to maintain my filters and I have 2 sets of filters.

some vacuums have a filter indicator that warn you to change your filter. if your vacuum doesnt, change the filter within 3-6 months or when the suction begins to go bad.
