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.

Know your machine.

By 

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

3 families use my machine, and it has served us well for over 5 years. To keep it working well, you have to know your machine. 1. Hot tap water is good, but water heated on the stove will overheat the little valve in the bottom of the clean water tank. This is an easy fix but it's 10 bucks. 2. I have a Golden Retriever and she sheds long blond hair 2x a year. Always vacuum very thoroughly before using the Hoover, and clean the hair out of the brushes every time you empty the tank. 3. Pay attention while you are using the machine. Look for powerful suction across the top of the dirty water tank. Make sure you have rotation of the brushes. Know what your machine sounds like and investigate any unusual noise. Make sure the brushes stop when the handle is locked upward. 4. I have repaired my machine several times when parts just wore out. I had to replace the motor, and also the turbine that spins the brushes. Parts are available online and are not expensive. Almost any repair can be done with nothing but a Phillips screwdriver. 5. Once a year, I take the cover off and give it a good cleaning. There's going to be dirt and hair that need to be cleaned out. My second motor and turbine have lasted 2x as long as the originals, I think because I put a little WD-40 on the bearings. I open up the turbine and add a little white lithium grease to the gears. Inspect the first plastic gear that is driven by the steel worm gear to make sure it is not showing any wear. I also like to spray some Elmer's Slide-All (teflon) on the impeller and the inside of the housing. This reduces friction and adds to the life of the turbine. I love my Hoover. So does my daughter and my son. We all know that if you take good care of your Hoover, it will clean your carpets.

Love this machine

By 

from Lane County Oregon

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I've had this for several years. Loved it when I first used it and have continued to love it. Used it today to clean my mother-in-law's carpet and we were both excited about the results. I am sure it gets that deep down dirt because the reservoir water was almost black and the carpet definitely looked clean.

leaky and difficult to maintain

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

Leaks every time I replace the water/shampoo tank and difficult to remove parts to remove rug fibers from cover hood. It does extract and dry quickly.

Great machine, but a total loss after about a dozen uses

By 

from Collinsville, IL, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

Five months after the warranty expired, the machine can't be used because the water tank is shot, leaking all over the floor faster than I can mop it up. I loved the machine when it worked, but no machine of any kind should fail after what amounts to 20-30 hours of service.

Just bought not used

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I am afraid to use this machine. The upper tank I am reading about falls off. I have not used mine yet to see if it leaks too... getting sad as my last cleaner, different brand, was good last for 5 years multiple use. Thinking about returning

Leaking after 3 uses?@

By 

from Bonaire, GA, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I bought this cleaner after our last Hoover started smoking. After only 3 uses it has started leaking from the clean water tank. I've cleaned the gaskets/seals on the tank and ensured there is no residue from the cleaning solution. I've re-seated the tank many times but I always get the same leaky result. Please help me resolve this.

Pretty good

By

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

I bought this because I have two dogs who have a tendency to have "accidents" . Used it first time today. 2 things - it did not get the very fresh feces accident out of the carpet. I will try again later. And if you made the clean tank attach with the same type of little hooks you use on the dirty tank - I think even with the cleaning issue I would give it 5 stars. Clean tank very hard to attach.

My 2nd By Choice!!

By 

from Aurora, CO, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

My current machine is a few years old, and is second to the previous one I had for several years prior. I once nearly accosted a couple in line at the store telling them how much they were going to love the machine they were buying. A very reliable machine!

Two units. BOTH spinbrush scrubbers failed.

By 

from Las Vegas, NV, United States

Comments about Hoover SteamVac Dual V Widepath Upright Carpet Cleaner:

We bought two units, one back around 2011, and another in 2013. Both suffered the exact same catastrophic failures. After a couple of uses, the Spinbrush stops working. Our second unit's Spinbrush gave out after the second use. The solution/water tank leaks pretty badly, so we have to keep cleaning up after it. So all this unit does is get our carpets wet. So it's just a wet vac now. Why is the Spinbrush so prone to failure? I still don't understand why we had to waste our money to buy a new one for it to go the same way.

I purchased this as a replacement for the older version. It is just as good, but a lot lighter in weight.
