    Out Cleaned My Bissell...Love it!

    I just got this carpet washer in today and started using it immediately, my Bissell died about 3 weeks ago and that was the last time I had cleaned my carpet but our dogs went to work. The Hoover is not the easiest machine in the World to figure out if your used to using a Bissell but if you take your time you will get it. My ONLY complaint is the leaking, it leaks more then my Bissell but it also is not a $900-$1,000 machine...I have some pictures posted to show before and after. I would recommend this carpet washer to anyone with little ones, pets or really any kind of stains. I know we are hooked. Thanks Hoover
    After using the HooverBefore the hoover, after vacuuming

    Great cleaner before and after pictures!!

    Everything works amazing except the attachment hose. It was lack luster but the rest was amazing I got out ground in dirt and old stains from Months ago. The stains were caused by spilled soda food hot sauce you name it. It all came up. I attempted to use the attachment hose it worked well but not as well as the main cleaner.

    Great Concept, Cheap Plastics, Hoover Come on now!

    Very Disappointed in Hoover! I had previously owned a Hoover steam vac for 12 years and it lasted that long with only having to replace the hose. I could tell the motor was giving out so I decided to buy the Max Extract Dual-V, model# F7412900 for $159. Out of the Box I could see it had a hairline crack in the upper water tank and also a large multi-crack in the lower suction channel. It could have been from either the shipping or manufacture but decided to give it a go to see if everything would work anyways. The performance of the carpet cleaning was excellent and it was taking LOADS of dirt out of the carpet but I kept seeing puddles of water under the unit after I was done cleaning. After inspecting the lower tank to see why there was water leaking I saw the rubber seal was split and allowing water and hair to escape. Once I found the third major problem decided to return to Walmart for a no-hassle refund. I thought maybe I would try the previous Dual-V model #F7411900 for $139 and out of the box checked for any cracks and found one of the retainer brackets for the lower tank was cracked and wouldn't hold the tank down properly to ensure an air tight seat over the suction part, which is a major factor in proper function. Instead of wasting my time taking it back to store I decided to glue the retainer piece and install it back in place. I also notice this unit had a broken gasket in which I just put some rubber glue in the gap and let it dry. The third negative part is when I tried the first time it wasn't putting out hardly any water and I had to seat the upper tank just right in order for it to initiate the water check valve. After that it did an excellent job at cleaning the carpets. If not for my ability to fix thing I would definitely not recommend for anyone to purchase this product and if you do make sure and purchase the 2 year no hassle warranty! Good luck.

    Having a hard time finding something wrong

    I am a long time user of a Hoover rug cleaner. The first served me very well. It traveled to many places (including kids' dorm rooms) and lasted a very long time - probably longer than 15 years. The down side of it - heavy and awkward to carry, its parts were very difficult to clean and, in its last years, it would sporadically loose suction (stopping and removing and reattaching the dirty container would remedy that - at least for a while). I finally gave up on it two weeks ago when the brushes no longer rotated. The Hoover Max Extract Dual V Widepath Carpet Washer as a stand alone gets high marks from me. Relative to its predecessor, it gets extremely high marks because it is, in my opinion, a much improved version of what I once had and liked a lot. First of all it is a bit lighter. Hoover made a truly brilliant move by providing a single hand grasp position on the appliance which enables you to carry it easily with one hand. Missing on my old model, the only way to carry it, that I could manage, with one hand was to grab the handle and carry it on my back. It was too awkward (it hung crooked) and too heavy, to simply pick it up by the handle. The hand grasp on the new model is so positioned that when you use it, the machine hangs straight down. Secondly, the new model versus its predecessor is extremely easy to clean - all parts providing ample openings to get the carpet detritus out. In the dirty tank you can even remove the inside partitioning (again brilliant of Hoover) to completely clean that tank. I have a chocolate lab, and use to have two. It would take me as long, if not longer, to clean the old machine after using it than to use it - NO exaggeration. And if you think, then don't completely clean it out! You have to for if you leave the dog hairs in, they become a dry blockage nearly impossible to remove. As for the new machine's cleaning power - I was very impressed. I'll just post some pictures. I took these to send to my daughters as I knew that they would appreciate what the new machine could do after the many, many years we used and appreciated the old one. The first photo shows the rug after just being cleaned, except for the top left corner to show the difference. The second photo shows it the next day, completely cleaned and dry. Vibrant! I'm simply in love and one of my daughters has already borrowed it.
    All clean except for the top left corner

    Amazing results

    I originally purchased this steam cleaner because of my child and pets and wanted to know my carpets were clean! But we had a hair dye bottle explode and land on the carpet and this steam cleaner worked wonders !! So thankful I purchased it!!!
    This was hair dyeOver 24 hours later. Pulled it right up!!!

    Not the best choice

    I bought this carpet cleaner 3 years ago. It has leaked from the beginning. You have to have everything set perfectly or it leaks. Now it has developed an electrical short that flips the GFCI switches as you are plugging it in. Thank heaven I was trying to clean in the kitchen where there are GFCI switches.
    Hi VSchmitt! Hmm, that seems strange. Your Max Extract should stand the test of time.This sounds like an internal issue that a technician should have a look at. We recommend bringing your cleaner in to a Hoover authorized repair center for service. For a list of locations in your area please visit: https://hoover.com/stores/. We hope this is helpful!


    I am so surprised by the poor reviews I see here! However, there aren't many reviews and I've found that most people only want to review something when they have a negative issue with an item, rather than when they are happy with an item. ...I however wanted to submit a review because I absolutely love my carpet washer! I have 9 year old cream colored, berber carpeting that loves to hold onto dirt and stains. I have 3 children all under the age of 7, 2 huge dogs, 2 cats, me, my husband and my mother all living under one roof. Needless to say, our carpets have seen a spill or two and some heavy-duty foot traffic. I hired a professional "chemical based" carpet cleaning company to come do my carpets and I could barely see a difference. My husband was so mad, he demanded a refund. It was terrible. Well, after that, I bought this machine and I am beyond impressed. It quite literally turned my grey, splotchy, stained, berber carpeting to it's original, cream-colored newness again! It is amazing! It got out every single stain - even a stain I had from buffalo wing sauce that I have tried everything to remove it!! This machine is a life-saver and an absolute dream! The drying time is beyond impressive as well. Not even 8 hours after washing the carpets and they are bone-dry. It took 2 days for my carpets to dry when I had them professionally done. This machine has amazing suction. My only "con" was that it is heavy, but I mean, in reality - of course it is! It holds quite a big of water so of course it's going to be heavy. It's also kind of a pain to have to refill the tank with water and empty out the dirty tank constantly while cleaning. I think I had to do it 6 times or more per room. It can be annoying, but given how well this machine cleans and suctions - it's a small price to pay! Thank you Hoover! I love, love, love this machine!! (As a side note, I've owned my machine for a year now, with zero issues with it)

    It falls apart in the first month

    I like this machine because of the large capacity tanks and the great job it does. I like the fact that I can take it apart with ease to clean it. But like all Hover carpet cleaning machines, they don't last. I bought mine last November 2013 . Jan 2014 the springs popped out of the handle on the recovery tank. The utility rack will not stay on. March 2014 the release lever for the recovery tank broke off for no reason. Next thing I know I can't get the handle for the recovery tank to stay on right because both springs are now gone. They do not reattach either. The top lever that is used to wrap the power cord around for storage, broke off when I used this machine last month. That did not impress me at all. Now another piece is broken off and I don't even know what it is for. The plastic on these machines is very brittle. The machine Yesterday I discovered that both the water tank and the solution tank leak out of the bottom. I had a mess of solution all over my table before noticing it. I had to put the solution in the water tank. Why is it that every hover carpet cleaner that I have ever had does this?
    My experience with that Hoover Dual V

    Just as great as my first one!!

    This is my second Hoover spinbrush machine and it's of course even better than the 1st one I purchased 20 years ago. My first one lasted through 13 years of abuse cleaning up after dogs, even puppy birthing on cream carpet. These things make the Bissell's look like child's toys....the difference in cleaning. I was given a Bissell and threw it out to buy this Hoover because there is no comparison. Fortunately, my local Walmart and Fedex branches are awesome so it was delivered without damage and I had it together and running in 2 minutes. These machines work best using them in a certain manner which is NOT flying across the room with it like a vacuum cleaner. Lay the water down solid stream as you SLOWLY inch the machine forward giving the brushes time to actually scrub with the solution it's laying down. Let off the trigger and SLOWLY pull the machine backward as it extracts all the nasty it just scrubbed up. You're going to see some water seepage if it sits after you're done but geez it's a carpet shampooer full of water folks and that has to drain back out of the lines. The tanks are MUCH better than having one tank like a Bissell because no dirty water mixing into the clean. Use your machine like I said and you will see results like the pics I've included which was a HIGH traffic area that hadn't been cleaned in no telling how many years. Expect to go through at least 3 tanks in an approximate 16x16 room. That's normal if you're doing it right and want superb results. Can't say enough good things about this machine!

    Love it

    A few lil minor things. Leaks a lil ONLY when you put in new clean water tank but nothing major just a few drops. Second the water tank could be bigger but for the size of the cleaner it works out. (Easy tank removal anyways) plus I like how it comes with the lil bottle of cleaner solution. Works perfectly, cleaned my carpets and removed all the stains. Now my carpets have a fighting chance with all the lil kids.
