I purchased this system in November to help with cleaning up after my two dogs. It works great on cleaning up the short hair and any unwanted messes one of them may leave me. The part I like best is the clean up of this machine. First the dirty water tub is easy to pick up and pour out. Second all the lower scrubbing parts come off making it super easy to clean. It allows me to get every part off the machine and get all the pet hair out of it before putting it way for storeage again. I have had other systems by other brands in the past and they never had any of these features and the other brands would get so dirty looking I didn't want to touch them to clean.

I had a very similar experience as CDFBattChief. I purchased the product this morning, assembled it and got to cleaning. The spinscrub brush was already attached just like it shows on Hoover's installation video but I double checked that it was fastened and not loose. I got through half of my hallway and noticed that portion of the carpet I was cleaning was very damp with rows of solution striped across it. While the machine was opterating, I tilted the machine to check if the brush was moving and it was not. I also noticed that the dirty water tank was dry. No water was lifted from the carpet and the spinscrub brush was not rotating. I removed the brush and the dirty water tank, then replaced both, but the problem remained. During two of the instances that I turned the machine on and off to test if the brush was rotating, I heard that same sound you described. I heard a loud sound like the machine was sucking up a plastic bag. It sounded like a horn. At that time, I unplugged the machine and sat on the carpet - defeated. The rotating brush was the reason I chose this machine after researching several Bissell and Hoover options. So, I took the machine apart and reassembled it again. It was then that I realized the spinscrub brush was not allowing the nozzel to sit flat on the floor so I removed it. That alteration helped to allow the nozzel to sit in the right position and at least lift the water from the carpet - thus the dirty water tank started to fill. The problem still remains with the spinscrub brush. It just won't spin once it's attached. I phoned the help line (phone # on the back of the machine and as instructed in the introduction video) but they were closed. I phoned the store I purchased the machine from and they suggested I return the product for another one, indicating the machine might have been a faulty one. I suppose I will take the machine (20 minutes away) back to the store and chance this won't happen again. If it does, you will heard about it.

Comments about Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer:
I purchased this model and its been in the repair shop more times then I've used it even after Hoover replaced the original cleaner . The cheap plastic air turbine bearings overheat and lock up so the brushes wont spin . Do not buy this model its junk. If I could rate it a zero stars I would.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Hand Tools BROKE after one use
from Birnamwood, WI, United States
I bought this machine from Amazon two weeks ago. Used it just once to clean my carpets, stairs and furniture. When I tried to remove the spin scrub brush from the hose, the tab that clicks in place broke off! I put the upholstery brush attachment on to clean my furniture, when I tried to remove that.. same thing the little plastic piece that slides over the raised black knob broke! Highly disappointing, I have to give an overall rating of poor because I would expect attachments designed to come off and on to have a better design than this. Now I'll have to purchase new hand tools at a cost of over $40. If I knew that I could have added that $40 onto my purchase price and bought a machine with a better design.

I bought this because my light colored bedroom carpet was looking a little dirty in the high traffic areas and needed to be cleaned. I used my new Power Scrub and now my carpet looks NEW again. I can't believe the dirt it pulled up.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excitement soon died - as did the cleaner
By Maggie May

I bought a Power Scrub carpet washer on black Friday as it was a fantastic deal. I didn't get around to actually using it until after the holidays (Jan 23, 2016). I read all the instructions, assembled it correctly and all was working fine on the first wash. I emptied the dirty water tank and refilled the clean water for the rinse. I got about 3/4 of the way through the rinse and the machine cut off. I checked my outlet and it was working (no blown fuses, other things worked when plugged into it). On the troubleshooting guide, it said that it might be a fuse in the actual machine and my only recourse is to take it to an authorized dealer. Luckily there is one in town, but this should not happen on a brand new appliance the very first time it's used!! My recommendation will depend on how long it takes for the repair and if this ever happens again. At this point, I would not recommend it.

The Wife and I just bought this cleaner yesterday, and put it to the test. It worked wonderful, the stair attachments and overall cleaning of this cleaner is excellent. It cleaned circles around our "Bissell" that has been retired.
from Naperville, IL, United States
I cleaned all the carpeting and it did a great job. I couldn't believe the amount of dirt it picked up, even though I have had the carpets professionally cleaned every year. What I also like is that the machine is easy to disassemble to clean and put back together.
from California, United States
I was so excited about purhasing a carpet cleaner for my huge rug! I used this Hoover once and the suction stopped working before I could finish the cleaning project. Tried everything suggested to get it back with suction...no luck!!!
