Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum - FH50240

MaxExtract® deep cleaners are designed to clean a variety of surfaces from carpets to couches and sealed wood floors to tiled floors. This versatile, easy-to-use machine removes water, dirt and grime with pressurized cleaning, and has heated drying for a fast dry time. Features a double chamber nozzle to power wash surfaces with even suction across a wide path, while the automatic detergent system provides the right ratio of detergent and water for the best cleaning results. Patented Hoover® SpinScrub® brushes gently loosen dirt and clean all sides of carpet and upholstery fibers, with an adjustable speed control for various floor surfaces, including a Spill Pick-Up mode so you don't scrub in spills.

  • SpinScrub® 77 counter-rotating brushes engineered to surround carpet fibers, removing dirt at every angle. It's like treating your carpet to a deep, massaging salon shampoo.
  • SpinScrub® Setting Options - sets your cleaning system by surface:
    • Spill Pickup Mode is suction only, without brush agitation action;
    • Gentle Scrub Mode rotates brushes at slower speed for ceramic tile, linoleum and sealed hardwood floors;
    • Power Scrub Mode maximizes scrubbing action for cleaning carpet and high-traffic areas.
  • Heated Cleaning powerful motor with forced heated air to help speed dry time.
  • Auto Conversion Tools conveniently positioned where they should be - right at your fingertips.
  • AutoRinse™ sets cleaner to wash with detergent on forward stroke, then automatically rinses with fresh water on the backwards stroke.

We have used Bissell carpet cleaners in the past and they were always a hassle to set up and use. In the past with other cleaners you always had to lay the cleaner back all the way to remove the tank to empty it, with this one it was a snap, just lift the tanks out with the product sitting upright. Emptying the tank was easy now that they have put an big spout on the back of the tank where you would expect to find it but it was never there on other products. When it was time to clean up afterwards (this is the step I dreaded the most from past experiences) in preperation for storing the product, I was extremely surprised how easy this was. I have to applaud Hoover and their Engineers with this product. Tanks can easily be removed without having to lay the entire product down flat, top of dirty water tank easily comes apart so you can clean the entire inside of the tank. This one feature is well worth the money because in the past the tank was not accessible for cleaning so you always left some dirt and water that would eventually start to stink to high heaven the next time you used the cleaner. You can also remove the front nozzle cover to clean up any dirt or hair that always seems to get stuck in other products. Lastly, the brush assembly on this product easily pops off so you can thoroughly rinse them and remove any hair that gets wrapped up in the bristles. The brush then easily snaps right back into place without having to worry about any tools or latches. I was so happy with the maintenece on this product I almost forgot to mention how well it actually cleaned my carpets, Carpets look as good as new and again I dont have to worry about this cleaner smelling the next time I pull it out to use it. Nice job Hoover!!!

We have 3 German Shepherds, so you can imagine that this gets used often. We bought it brand spanking new about a year and a half ago. Earlier this year the cleaning solution valve on the tank started leaking. Since the part that was defective is not user replaceable, we called and got a whole new tank. Well, here we go again, except this time both valves are leaking. Hoover! We need a RELIABLE, easy to empty, and easy to use Carpet Shampooer! I'm waiting on my return call from customer service right now! If you are thinking about buying this product, DON'T! It's too expensive and the tank valve design is defective.

Worked well for a week and then started leaking

By 

from Barrie, ON, Canada

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

We bought this unit a while ago and after using it twice - more or less satisfactory (I cannot emphasize how important it is to give it a lot of time to suck up the dirty water that it's dispensed into the carpet), the seal of the soap container became leaky to the point where it loses water at the same rate that it is being refilled. I've held a finger against the hole while refilling it but during transportation and insertion it makes such a mess. I was going to order a replacement tank, but apparently it's out of stock - which is no surprise, since this absolutely subpar construction seems to be a massive issue for many other customers. This was my first Hoover and it looks like it'll be my last one as well as it's impossible to use the unit right now without causing puddles all over the place due to the leakage.

Waste of money

By 

from South Sioux City, NE, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

I have had nothing but trouble since purchasing this piece of junk. It has never had the suction my 15 year old one had. In fact, I can get about 1/2 the water picked up that it puts into the carpet. The last time I used it, you could feel soap, the carpet was sticky, I used nothing but clear water on it and was still sticky. Went to use it last night, poured the 'Hoover brand' cleaner in the container and it went straight through the 'screw' at the bottom. I tried to turn this screw to tighten it and the threads or what ever holds it in place are wore and it just went around and around. Please, please don't purchase this piece of junk.

AMAZING RUG SCRUBBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By 

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

I absolutely LOVE this machine. My last one was a Bissell and there is NO comparison. It had a bladder for the water which didn't do a good job with suction. This one is so easy to operate and clean after use. I am really impressed with how it cleans the carpets. The rugs only take about an hour to dry because of the powerful suction. Definitely worth the money. It pays for itself with the first use compared to having to pay a professional to do it.

Very disappointed...

By 

from Macedon, NY, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

Let me preface this review with this statement; I am not one to normally write negative reviews, but I feel compelled to share. We purchased this machine last summer (late summer). We also own a Hoover upright "Wind Tunnel High Performance." We have been very happy with he upright. We have purchased Hoover for years. I had no allusions about the fact that this machine was not a steam cleaner / professional piece of carpet cleaning equipment, but I had high hopes, none the less. Overall, I was very pleased with this machine. We have several children and they track in mud and dirt onto the carpets from time to time and sometimes make spills. This machine did well for us for several months. Two months ago, my tank began leaking, no actually, not leaking, gushing water out of the bottom of the tank- right at the bottom, where there was apparently a seal of some sort, where it clicks into the unit. I do not know why this seal has failed, or where it has gone, but it is not doing its job. I was upset at first, but as time has passed, I have become disgusted, since I am not used to having floors that don't at the very least, have the appearance of clean. It is hardly fair though, that I should need to spend money to replace a machine that I have previously purchased. Nor do I think that it is fair that I should have to pay to replace a tank, that should not be faulty. In Hoover's defense, I have not contacted them yet. I am hoping that this post and review will have them contacting me, to make this right by remedying this problem. At this time, I cannot recommend this product. I will be happy to post another positive review if this is addressed and made right.

Very powerful, reliable machine

By 

from Seattle, WA, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

This carpet cleaner does what it is supposed to do; it cleans carpets very well! I just used it on a terrible large soy sauce stain (the whole bottle) and it removed all of it without a trace. The suction on this machine is very powerful and leaves the carpet drier than most machines I have used. I thoroughly enjoy the rinse mode because I can get every last trace of soap out of the carpet (no more sticky rug). I would recommend this carpet cleaner to anyone who would like a powerful, effective, and reasonable priced machine. One thing to keep in mind: the Max Extract 77 is made mostly of plastic so if you are someone who beats or is rough with your possessions, this will not last long or work properly for you. Proper maintenance and cleaning after each use is a must for long time use. I have used mine for 2 years with no problems.

LEAKS!....POURS WATER OUT BACK!

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

This unit leaks out the by design hole in the back. Actually its more than a "leak", it POURS water all over. My unit is 2 yrs old but has not been used much due to all the water pouring out. (not used at all in over 10 months) I didn't have the time to stop and figure it out....it has just sat in the closet unused. I bought a Hoover because my MIL had an older one that had been used a lot & we had borrowed it many times. I wish I had never spent the money on this one. By all accounts I have recently read this is a big DESIGN FLAW by Hoover (yet apparently they are still selling the defective design). Obviously Hoovers are not the great products I thought they were. I doubt I will ever buy another carpet cleaner from them. I will stick to renting professional cleaners that actually work.

Don't buy this unit. Buyer beware !!!

By 

from Chicago, IL, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

Don't waste your time with this machine. Suction is real bad. After taking it to 2 places to repair, they could not find anything wrong. The suction power on the hose is the same suction you would expect from a vacuum cleaner that you paid 5 bucks for...almost none. It leaves spots on the rugs because it can't suck up the water. I don't know why this unit gets some good reviews only to think that the Hoover has some shills writing great lies about this product. What do you expect from a Chinese company. My previous Hoover rug cleaner did a good job for 12 years. I should have kept it and had it repaired. This unit does not do the job. Just gives you a nightmare.

Works great - when water doesn't leak from tank!

By 

from Spring, TX, United States

Comments about Hoover MaxExtract77 Multi Surface Pro Upright Vacuum:

Bought this cleaner about a year ago, worked great for most of the year. We took great care of it, emptied out both tanks before storing, rinsed it after every use, and only used Hoover brand shampoo, about 2 months ago I noticed it would leak if I left it sitting between rooms. Didn't think much of it, but now it leaks before I even put the tank back on. It seems to me its the plug but cant tell for sure. Either way, the shampoo runs out in a matter of minutes so its pretty much useless.
