This carpet washer does a job as good as rental machines. It is replacing a machine that played out after 12+ years of great use. The design has remained the same. It is a simple design that is not difficult to operate. Basically, use it 3-4 times and it practically pays for itself compared to renting. The only drawback is the 1 gallon on-board water tank may be small too small and require too many refills for some. With that said, the smaller tank allows for a compact machine that only takes up the space of an upright vacuum. The powerful 12 amp motor won't disappoint. Hand held power tool has decent scrubbing power for tough stains. The other included upholstery tool does a great job on furniture and vehicle interiors. Occasional drips may appear under machine below the point where hose attachment connects. Hose needs to be attached properly to avoid this issue. Tanks are easy to clean/rinse after use. Keep tank covers off until completely air dry to avoid any mildew issues before long term storage. Overall, great machine for the money.

I love the 2 tank system! I had a Bissell Pro Heat before and the 1 tank was such a hassle, I saw this on the site and was hooked! Picks up water great! I read the reviews about poor suction but when my husband encountered a similar problem, I realized its because the lid wasn't closed appropriately, double check this!! We live with 2 dogs who occasionally make messes, this cleaned it right up! we use the First Street cleaner from smart and final. We cleaned a 2 story, 2 bed, 2 bath condo and it did a great job!

I can't connect the additional arm to clean the stairs carpet. I checked the manual how to connect it but for some reason there is no water connection in my mashing . Overall I was very happy about this mashing , to the point I realized I can't wash stairs carpet. Very disappointed

Comment from Kenya - 3/31/2016

Hi Nadia! We’re sorry to hear the wrong model was purchased for your home needs. This is our most basic SteamVac, it’s for use exclusively on carpets. Unfortunately this model is not capable of above floor cleaning. The SteamVac model you’re looking for is available here: http://bit.ly/1RPCkMo. Hope this helps!

Shipment arrived earlier than expected, which was good and bad. Had I been out of town it would have sat on my porch and perhaps been stolen. But, I was home and so it turned out to be a good thing. It's a essentially the same design with more features and cheaper than the last one we bought. Cheaper because it's made in Mexico, and because these things get cheaper over time. Assemby was rather straightforward, but its weak point will be the 2 screws holding the handle to the body. Pretty much cheap plastic so who knows how long it will last. Feature wise it has a lot to offer, and it seems that this model is exclusive to Walmart. Price was right, so so far, can't complain.

I purchased this product over a year ago and have used it a few times. It did fine the first time but since then the brushes no longer rotate to scrub the carpet and the suction is markedly decreased. I won't purchase a Hoover Steam cleaner ever again and do not recommend this product to anyone else.

Hi 7 Grammy, try removing the brushes from the machine to see if you can spin them with your fingers manually. If they're locked up, make sure that there is no hair or debris jamming them. <br /><br />As for the suction, try resetting the panel door on the dirty tank by laying the handle down, remove the the dirty water tank lid, sliding the door up just under an inch and pressing it down firmly. From there, place the lid on again and stand your machine back up. It should perform beautifully at that point. If it's still giving you trouble, email me directly at Ian.McCormick@ttifloorcare.com. I'll make sure that you are back up and running again! <br /><br />-Ian<br />Hoover Customer Care

I have always bought Bissell products and wasn't sure about this one however I liked the look of the circular brushes on this machine and decided to give it a try. Very glad I did. I have 3 dogs and a cat in the house along with my 3 children and have a heck of a time keeping carpets clean. I've been thru 2 of the bissell machines in the last 14 months and even when new they never worked this good. Suction of the water is fantastic compared to the other brands. Carpet is barely damp after picking up water. I just cleaned carpets last week with the Bissell and thought they were clean however, after using this machine now realize that until now they were not clean at all. I removed two tanks of dirt out of the carpet with this machine. I just wanted to try it out not expecting to find much after just cleaning the carpets last week but ended up doing all of them again. Went a lot quicker with this machine and was much easier to clean up afterwards. I would recommend this product to everyone. All I can say is that unless something very bad happens in the future Hoover will have my business for a very long time. I don't usually write reviews but, this product deserved to be recognized!!!

I bought this to replace my old carpet cleaner and am very disappointed. There are not separate compartments for detergent and water, so I cannot just rinse the carpet after washing without emptying and refilling. Most disappointing, however, is the lack of suction. I went through 3 tanks of water/solution mix and there was NO water suctioned up into the the dirty water tank. I love my hoover vacuums, but have to go back to Bissell for carpet cleaners.

Comment from Ian McCormick - 4/2/2013

Hi Lori, while it is true that there is only one tank for water and solution, you still have one of Hoover great creations at home. If you remove the recovery tank lid, you should see a square shaped panel on the front of that tank. It does not disconnect from the tank but it does slide up about an inch or so. Try sliding the unit up as high as it will go and then slam it down firmly. The machine should pick up beautifully once complete. Thanks so much.
