I hope you've found out by now, but, in case you haven't, the latch to remove the canister is right by the handle on top of it, just don't lift until you release the latch with your thumb, it's got a safety to keep you from hitting the release when you're using that handle to carry the vacuum. (good engineering).
you can download a manual from the dyson site, here:

OK. Lost suction almost always means blockage. You need to check all the pipework, the hose and any bits you can remove at the base of the machine - if I remember right, the DC17 has a sort of U shaped bend at the bottom of the handle that you can remove - also turn it over and inspect the clear flexible plastic tube (if it's not blocked, it can get damaged and leak). As for filters, you do of course need regularly to wash the filter that's above the cannister (wash both the blue sponge and the yellow carrier) and be sure they are dried gently for at least 12 hours before putting them back. If you need new filters, any vacuum service shop should be able to supply them. I hope this helps. I value your feedback so please remember to rate my response. Good luck!

That means that the belt is stretched or worn. This causes the roller brush to not be able to turn the way its supposed to against the resistance of the carpet and therefore won't pick up well. You need to replace the belt. Here are the belts you need:
