Thank you for your question.

I can understand if your concern when you think you got the wrong filter for your shop vacuum.

This part number is a direct OEM part for your vacuum. I did not see it listed as a replacement.

17809 is an Orange stripe filter with dimensions of 8 1/4 inches high and 7 1/4 inches wide.

Did you perhaps get the wrong filter sent to you?

If the dimensions on your vacuum are different please reply with the dimensions and I will see if I can find the right one.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I had exactly the same problem in that the 17809 filter is about 2 inches too short to fit my 758.17871 vacuum despite it being the one the site and the box indicates should fit. After looking at the filters the site listed for other Sears Wet/Dry vacuums, I found the 17804 filter which had the right dimensions and was listed for other old 32-gallon vacuums so I ordered one and it fits just fine. It's a little bit more expensive but at least I have something that works. I'm not sure why the site and box recommend the wrong filter but hopefully other folks can find this if they have the same problem.
