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.

Broken out of the box!

By 

from Wyoming, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I bought this machine on 06/26/2015 and assembled the product on 06/27/2015 and when I went to get started cleaning the Machine will not turn on and only powers up if you pull the solution trigger. I have read the manual and tried to troubleshoot but I found no answers to my questions. I will be taking this product back on Monday for a different brand or a refund!!

The producty is great, even for a dummy dad type

By 

from Gilbert AZ

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I have used the rug cleaner often and it is as advertised, which is quite a treat. I lost my user manual so called customer support number but can never get an answer. I then tried leaving my courtesy call-back to my number; again no calls so called the number for Marissa. SUCCESS!! That department & this particular lady answered my second ring and was extremely helpful in all my requests. It's a shame that Hoover does not take advantage of this wonderful Rep and have her teach other Hoover departments on how to do their job in an excellent manner as this lady. Marissa, THANK YOU! (PS: I would appreciate Hoover not use my email for marketing purposes)

Brushes quit after 4 hours use.

By 

from Denver, CO, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

This machine is not even 3 years old and the brushes just quit rotating. An authorized repair center quoted $100 to fix it, and said it would probably happen again. I'll use it without the brushes and look for a competitor's replacement in the mean time..

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I bought this about 1 year ago due to my Cat throwing up in the middle of my new carpet. I now use this everytime I get a stain and it works flawlessly.

It works but the quality is not there

By 

from Iowa, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

We purchased this Dec 2011 and maybe used it 20 times during that period. Something snapped the other night, so I checked warranty. It is only one year. If I spend 200 to 300 on a machine, I would expect it to last more than 3 years. The warranty should be good for 5 years. We have had to use it more frequently due to a new pet.

Works well... once replacement parts come...

By 

from TX, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I got this as a Christmas gift. Firat impression was that it was poorly made as it was broken out of the box! I was able to replace it at the store it was purchased at. Once we got that squared away I used it and LOVED IT! I use it more now that we have more carpet (about once a month or more) in the last 6 months I've had to replace the brush block twice! The "pin" part that goes into the machine to spin the brushes has twisted itself broken both times. Our carpet is not long or plush. It's rather used and short so I cannot imagine it was working too hard or was getting stuck on the carpet, especially since that is what this machine is designed to do... Scrub carpet! In my opinion that particular piece of that part needs to be replaced with a metal "pin". Anyway if you want a decent Capet cleaner and don't mind shoveling out $30 every 6 months to replace the brush block then this product is for you.

You will love this Machine

By 

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

Many have pointed out the excellent cleaning of this machine. I can only add to that. I just received mine and cranked it up with the sample cleaner that came with. Cleans like you would not believe and sucks up the water/dirt very well. We have 2 dogs also. This thing is so well engineered it's pretty amazing. I assembled it easily and I was very impressed with the thoughtful design that went into this machine. The tanks are easy to remove, easy to clean and refill, easy to replace on the machine. Of course your are going to get some drips on the floor, you're toting around water tanks (referring to some negative reviews). We happen to have a utility room sink that is large and helps with this process. You will need a filter for a sink drain or use the toilet to empty the dirty tank. The amount of dirt and fuzzy stuff this machine picks up is amazing. The whole cleaning/suction path of the machine can be removed to rinse/clean including the suction "Dual V" part. There are minimal small valves that can leak. I researched two machines before I bought this: the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer and the Bissell products. I do not like the Bissell design with the collapsible bladder inside the clean water tank. Other have tried this (iRobot) for a cleaner and the bladder does not last. Also looks harder to clean. We have the Bissell Spot Bot for pets and the Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner, FH40160PC. We like both but the Bissell machine started leaking right away from the rubber valves at the bottom of the tanks right away. We have learned to live with this. This Bissell design has 2 separate tanks that are also easy to remove/clean. We also have the Hoover Hard floor cleaner and it uses a similar 2 tanks system and my wife and I love it. No issues with cleaning or maintenance. I am glad I bought this over the Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer as the path is wider=less clean time. All the machines this size and type are going to be heavy (referring to negative reviews). The Power scrub deluxe is lighter, but I (husband) will probably be the one to use this more. I was thinking of the rental machines for carpet cleaning with only the hose to maneuver and clean as you go, as I was using this Hoover. On those machines the motor/tank are all in the unit separate so handling only the hose is easy. What I like about this machine, that those do not have, are the spinning brushes to "scrub" the carpet. It's also more compact and less floor space than the rental machines. Also the tank designs are a plus along with no hose to clean out. I had to look over the Reviewers who posted a "1". Seems the vast majority were from 3-4 years back. Cleaning tips/address some negative reviews: I rinsed out the dirty tanks after every clean tank/area I did. Lot's of dirt and fuzzy stuff that needs to be rinsed out of the dirty tank each time. After 3 areas I removed the brushes to clean. The cleaning is a little tricky as there was fuzzy stuff around the inside of the plastic housing for the brushes. As I rinsed some of this balled up and made it hard to turn the brushes. Some negative reviews said they had been through multiple brushes after breakage. I can see that if this area is not cleaned, it will bind and the brushes will eventually stop>something has to give. I was able to rinse the fuzz balls out and /or pull out with my fingers, but a set of forceps or something else small to reach in and grab might be needed. I tried to open the housing but was not successful. I imagine the green plastic drive shaft is made to give to protect the motor/inner gears. The Dual V housing is removable to clean also. Again some fuzzy stuff gets straddled across the inside reinforcement areas that takes a little patience to clean out. This was not cleaned until the end and before outing away. Beware of fuzzies laying across openings/gaskets as you are removing and replacing tanks. I did have some drainage after parking the machine for tanks rinse/refills, but I use the machine to suction the floor and picked the water right up. One time after being on the carpet during tank refills it did leave some dirty drainage. This came right up when I cranked up the machine again. This is fluid/residue from the suction path and the area just cleaned. Given the long path of the Dual V and the vertical nature of this path, I can see where it came from. Perhaps while the machine is still running you could lift the front a little and suck more air to prevent this. But it came right up again so... Per the instructions I emptied the tanks and let them dry before storage so I have not had a leaking problem. Great Machine. It's a rainy wet day today so I cleaned carpets instead of working in the yard. It is big and slightly heavy, but this allows more cleaning in a shorter period of time. It moves back and forth on the carpet easily. Like other, Hoover has placed the carry handle low so it is easier to lift/tote. We also have a 2 story house. I can't help but wonder when people complain in reviews about this type of machine being too big or heavy, if they are the same people who drive around an extra 5 minutes looking for a closer parking space at the gym so they do not have to walk so far. If you want the convenience of a carpet/rug cleaner that you can crank up whenever you want, and not have to schedule/have strangers in to clean your carpets, this is a great machine. Update 3 March 2015. Just used this on a wool "zebra" rug. Please see photo. I was worried this machine would have trouble with this rug as there are high spots and low spots. I tried to show this in the photo. These high and low spots are substantial for a cleaner like this. This rug is in the den/TV room where we hang out and the dogs chew their bones on this rug. Again the amount of dirt this thing extracts is amazing. I would show you but that would be, well, airing your dirty rugs in public. This machine had no trouble with the hi and low points on this 12X9 rug. Cleaned very well. Again, at the end, clean the brush housing well and remove the fuzz balls.

Leaks like a sieve.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

This shampoo vac has everything I needed. However, it leaks terribly; starting from the first time I used it. I bought it mainly for small cleanups and shampooing my couch because I have 2 dogs. The sprayer button sticks open and sprays water everywhere. I have to squeeze it so hard to turn it off that it feels like I'm gonna break it. Also water leaks out of the bottom of the vacuum and I have to put a towel under it to soak up the puddle while I'm using the hand attachment. I have been searching for a different shampoo vacuum and this hoover I have will find a dumpster to go in when I do.

Was great until....

By 

from Rockford, IL, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

i purchased this shampooer, in July of last year (2014). Ive used it maybe 7, mainly because it is broke, and also we recently purchased a home that is all hard wood except for 3 bedrooms. I use it mainly once a month. As i do not need to more than that. Upon using it my last time, i filled up the water tank it poured water from the bottom ALL over my sink. Its very frustrating, i paid alot of money for the "Hoover" name. and the fact that it lasted me maybe 7 shampoos is shameful. I would have thought i would have been able to use it more before breaking. Please fix this issue as i see from reviews i am not the only one with this problem. Back to a Bissel for me.

A great carpet cleaner

By 

from Bradford, PA, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I bought this more than 3 years ago because I have multiple dogs, including one that sheds almost constantly and ultimately results in a wet dog smell after heavy rains or snowfalls. The cleaner still works perfectly and with great results. I will continue to recommend this product to anyone looking for a quality product.
