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)

I just received this machine today and it leaks water all over the floor while it is running. The water is from the clean water tank and is coming from under the unit. I have put an e-mail into Hoover and hope to have this resolved quickly. It did a good job cleaning but I had to use the uphostery attachment to get the water out of the carpet because of the leak.

was great product - now clean water tank leaks

By 

from Lakes area of MN

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I have had mine for 4 years and today it is leaking from the water tank. It just runs down the back of the machine and soaks the carpet. Like some others I expected this to last longer as they don't get used as much as a vacuum. It is in excellent condition except for the leak and cannot see where it is coming from. I checked on the price of a new clean water and it was around $65 so I am debating if I need a new machine or just parts. We have pets but not allowed in living room. They are shih tzus and do not shed. A little disappointed. disappointed.

Water/Solution tank base support breaks easily

By 

from Cincinnati, OH, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

The base support that you put your tank/solution reservoir on breaks due to weight, I believe due to poor construction and cheap plastic, so now I am trying to super glue it together because they do not sell this part. It cost over $200 and we have only used it 5 times.

High maintenance

By 

from Twinsburg, OH, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I had a previous Hoover rug scrubber for nearly 20 years. It worked great. And I used it regularly. Even if I did not vacuum first, that one just kept on working. I had replaced the carpet in several rooms and the carpet guys were surprised at what good condition the old carpets were.It was a sad day when that machine finally stopped working. Knowing this I bought the Max Extract. The Max Extract cleans very well and the fast drying is true. However I do have a complaint. It seems this model will not last one year without the scrub brushes jamming. I have already taken in to service 3 times. Apparently this design for the brush mechanism is very susceptible to hair. I vacuum the carpet before using the scrubber. We no longer have any dogs and only one cat. I am disappointed in the performance to say the least. I am not afraid to get my hands dirty. If it means cleaning hair out of the machine by hand, so be it. But now I see you do not even provide service manuals for this model. At $75 a trip to the repair shop nearly every year makes this a very high maintenance machine in my opinion. If you can fix this problem, I would rate this 5 stars. This is my only complaint with the Max Extract which otherwise is a great system.

brush block breaks

By 

from Sacramento, CA, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I have purchased a Hoover Steam cleaner for the past 20 years. I have purchased about 3 machines over that span of time. Overall I have been pleased with the product. The most recent one was purchased about 2 years ago. I never noticed this problem in other cleaners I have owned. I have had to replace the brush block about 3-4 times so far with this new cleaner. I have dogs and use this machine. The brush block is only connected to the machine by 1 single plastic stem. I do not abuse a machine that costs me that much money. I clean after each use and remove as much pet hair from brushes as I can. At about $30 a pop per brush block replacement(easier than buying another machine right now) I am reaching the point that if I purchase another machine it won't be a Hoover.

Just bought this a week ago. Used it yesterday. It's the easiest cleaner I've ever used. Cleaned great, left the carpet feeling almost dry. Simple to use. Three brush speeds to choose from. Leaves the carpet fluffy and clean. I love it!!!

Leaks

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

You can't leave soap in the soap tank, it will leak into the clean water tank immediately. It's hard to get your carpet clean when you can't rinse the soap out , it just make the carpet get dirtier faster.

Looks great but

By 

from Lawrence, KS, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I picked up my new Hoover max extract dual. It assembled great I love that the caddy removes from machine. I filled it with water and it started to leak large amounts of water. I tried to verify set up, it looked correct. It emptied a full tank of water on a very small space of carpet. I then was able to go over the floor without adding more water. This was very time consuming! Now I have to go to a repair store for a new valve. My husband found a hole in the seal ring! I have company coming and my carpets are still dirty.
