Usually the filter is there to clean the air that is pushed through the vacuum and out again into the room.  Does this happen on your model?  Possibly the filter is there for this purpose and just appears to be filtering the dirt first rather than second.

I have a bagless Hoover Elite. The dirt cup assembly empties out the bottom, and has a filter on top. The problem is that much of the dirt ends up in the filter, which regularly becomes clogged, and is very messy to clean. There is a separate HEPA filter on the side of the vacuum. What's the purpose of the dirt cup filter? Why does the dirt need to be filtered before going into the dirt cup to be dumped? If I remove the filter, the vacuum seems to work fine, with the dirt going into the (now unobstructed) dirt cup for easy emptying….
