My DC has a couple of bars in the intake to keep wandering hands and large objects from getting into the impeller. It often gets clogged if I am sucking up long stringy shavings near the lathe.

Luckily I have a clear hose so its easy to tell if things are getting gunked up.

Do you have felt or cloth bags? If they are cloth it might be worth trying to hand wash them or a gentle cycle machine wash to see if they work better. I have felt bags and don’t think they would survive a trip through the washer.
