Hi there VacuumGuru here. There are 2 filters for your machine, one is below the dirt chamber and the other is underneath the handle. If you have lost your suction it is most likely the washable filter that is to blame. There is a manual available for free download here as well to help you out.
Basically when ou remove the spongey blue insert from your washable filter you should be able to hold up the other bit (white with a coloured plastic collar) to the sun and see light through it. If you can see no light then it will need to be thrown out and replaced.
Hope this helps!

Instruction manual is lost how can i get a new one?


Dyson has the manuals for some of their products on their product support page. See http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/dc05/dc05-absolute and look on the right hand side of the page. The direct link to the manual is http://www.dyson.co.uk/medialibrary/Files/Dyson/Support/downloads/UK/floorcare/Manuals/dc05_uk_manual_120710%20pdf.pdf . If you have a different DC05 model start here: http://www.dyson.co.uk/support/cylinders.aspx and select your specific vacuum. (The manual appears to be the same.)

I hope this helps.

It's lost suction even though we've cleaned the filters. Is there anything else we can clean?


Yes. Remove the hose, disconnect all the different sections and visually check for blockages. Make sure you check the cleaning head as well. If nothing is visible reassemble by adding ONE SECTION AT A TIME and check the suction by switching the power on and seeing if the hose will stay stuck to your hand when you turn it upside down. If you find that the suction dies after re-attaching a particular section, then there is a blockage in that section. Make sure you re-connect all sections of hose fully and correctly.

Try this and report back.

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! :)

Weak suction on dyson dc05. The suction is not as good as usual


Hi its Darran at Dyson.

Try washing your pre filter and checking the machine through for a blockage. These are the most likely causes.

A full blockage procedure and filter washing instructions can be found at www.dyson.co.uk/support.

Kind regards

Suction is not so powerful


Check for blockages and make sure the washable filter is clean (it must be completely dry before putting it back after washing).

Dyson animal vacuum 07 --5 years old no suction


the only way to fix the problem is to clean out the motor filter that's inside, the filter is around the motor and they don't do replacements for this part, as its not accessible by normal use, you need to remove all the case screws and disassemble the hole case, this site may help you https://manchestervacs.co.uk/DysonForum/index.php?topic=76.0

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.

My friends Dyson DC05 was loosing suction and then it stopped altogether one day. When she took the filters out there was black soot in them so it was obvious that the motor had burnt out. I think this happened because she wasn't cleaning the filters regularly (go do yours now!) I replaced the motor myself and wrote a guide with photo's at www.tasweb.org
