Hi there VacuumGuru for Vacuumspot.com.au. I would say that you are missing a part out of the vacuum dirt container. There is supposed to be a part a bit like an upside down funnel with a rubber seal on the end of it. Without this dirt will go straight to your filter. If you need any vacuum cleaner parts just go to Vacuumspot.com.au.
If you think this is a good solution please rank it!.

Filter keeps clogging up ie what gets picked up goes into the filter not cylinder?


Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm confident I know what the issue is here - it sounds like you may have accidentally discarded the bin inner when emptying your machine. Without this in place, dust and debris will pass through the system and onto the pre-filter, rather than being separated from the airflow and captured in the clear bin.

The bin inner is the coloured cylindrical plastic section with a black rubber seal, which usually sits inside the clear bin as shown here:

If you've recently emptied your DC05 it's worth checking to make sure the bin inner hasn't fallen out. If you can retrieve it, it should simply push firmly back into place inside the clear bin.

It's also a good idea to wash both parts of your machine's washable pre-filter, as it may still contain dust even if it looks clean on the outside. Use cold water without detergent, and allow at least 12 hours for both parts of the filter to dry completely before replacing it in the machine:


I hope this helps. If you need any further guidance you're welcome to give the Dyson UK Helpline a call on 0800 298 0298. We're available from 8am-8pm from Monday to Friday, and 8am-6pm on weekends. Calls are free from UK landlines.

I purchased a Dyson DC05 cleaner from a garage sale.The suction is great,however I noticed that the debris does not swirl around in the cylinder when I am vacuuming.I think the suction could be even...


Hi there VacuumGuru from Vacuumspot.com.au here. You will find there are 2 reasons will not spin in a dyson DC05. 1 is that it is missing one of the 2 parts in the dust container, there should be an upside down funnel in there and a rubber boot on it. Without those dust just goes either to the bottom of the bin or to the filter. The 2nd cause is that even though the filters have been cleaned they are simply too old. When you hold the washable filter (the one with the plastic outer and the foam insert) up to the light and take out the foam bit you should be able to see light through the filter. If not you are probably only running on maybe 80% suction which still works but isn't as good as it could be.
The filters are available here if you need them.
Hope this helps! :)

How many filters does Dyson DC05 has?


The DC05 has two filters.  In terms of air-flow through the machine, one sits between the bin and the vacuum motor, the other is after the motor and is effectively the exhaust filter. The one that's missing on your machine is the first filter - it consists of a blue foam disc contained within a yellow surround (the base of the surround has additional filter material built in to it). Both components are washable (but be sure everything is absolutely dry before re-installing after washing).  The filter you can see under the bin is the second (HEPA) filter. This one is usually quite long-lived but, if your machine has been used without the first filter in place, the HEPA filter almost certainly needs replacing too.  The machine should never be used without the first filter in place, as that will risk serious damage to the motor and will certainly shorten its life.  Incidentally, user manuals can be downloaded from dyson.com.

Dyson DC05 problem with filters.


First, and for sure, the problem is in the collection unit (CU), not the filter.  Is it possible that something is missing from the CU?  When you remove the CU to empty it, and you lift off the top, a conical yellow part remains attached to the inside of the lid; another yellow part remains in the bottom of the CU, with a big black rubber seal on top. 
I think the problem you describe will occur if that black rubber seal is missing, displaced or damaged (perhaps it dropped out with the dirt and you didn't notice).  A healthy seal between those two yellow parts inside the CU is essential. 
Please rate my response if this helps.  If it doesn't help, also let me know and I'll think again.

Dyson dc05


your vacuum is not picking up because the infamous dyson has lost suction "which they claim to not do" first you have to make sure the filters are taken out and cleaned, then check the hose and make ure there are no clogs in there. usually they are see through so they will be visable. also make sure there is no debre blocking the cones on the machine
