I don’t think so. 5500 uses filter type A and this is filter type H. I bought the ones for 5500 for my 5500-2 and they won’t fit

I vacuum off all the layers every 2-3 weeks. I have never rinsed the charcoal layer.
My check filter light came on 4 days ago on all 3 of my Winix purifiers. One 5500-2 and two AM80s.
Just put a generic set in the AM80s that cost $34.99 for both machines.
Happy with them so ordered another set of 2, and a set of 2 of a different brand to see if there is any difference at all between the multitude of brands with crazy names that Amazon sells.
I am happy with the ones I got so far. I vacuumed the charcoal thoroughly to remove any loose dust. The HEPA had a slight odor for 5 minutes, then it was gone. Quality of the appears good. Can't see paying more than double for these original ones.
Will see how the next 4 look. I'll use one, then have three ready for next year.
There is a permanent pre-filter (suggested washing every 2 weeks), then the thick charcoal filter filled with charcoal pellets (suggested washing every 3 months), then the very thick HEPA filter which is replaced annually. So to answer your question, no, in my experience, it has never clogged.
Many filters are sold as HEPA filters but are not certified. These may or may not meet the requirements to be as good as a certified filter. It's the same with the activated carbon. It might just be plain old charcoal. Activated carbon is cool - it's so porous that it can have a few square kilometers of surface area per gram. The micro pores will capture gas. That's why it is sold as something that can absorb odor. If the pellets are denser and heavier you may be looking at plain old charcoal. It's not going to do much for odor absorption.

That's what's frustrating about these filters. Producing activated carbon and getting HEPA certification isn't cheap but it's not nearly enough added cost to justify $80 for a filter replacement. The margin on these replacement parts are too high for my taste. Unfortunately there is physics that makes HEPA filters capture PM 2.5 where other filters either can't or do so poorly and there is physics that makes activated carbon absorb odor. There's no way of knowing if a generic filter meets this standard.

That makes this a slick deal IMO.

all depends on how dirty your air is.

Nabbed one. Price for me was $39.71. Same for S&S, maybe there's some YMMV action going on. Either way it's a good deal. Thanks OP.
