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 bought it last night. I have bought Hoover carpet cleaners in the past and I like them because of there cleaning power. I used this machine last night and it did a great job. I am disappointed though. that my last big Hoover only lasted 2 years. I do take care of my machines. Recently we are down to wood floors in our main rooms. Only need carpet cleaning for our bedrooms. I bought a smaller Hoover in the last couple of months, "Power Path Pro", great cleaning power, horrible water suction. I have used it three times including once at my Sons house. I almost ruined his carpets. I'm stuck with a machine that I hate. I do use my carpet cleaners as I clean my mother in laws carpets every few months, my sons carpets 1-2 times per year as well as mine as I have a dog who some times gives me trouble. I'm a little anxious about this machine. I know Hoovers clean great when they work.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Easy to use and cleans great!
from Gilbert, AZ, United States
I've used the machine twice to do all of my carpet. It works great! It automatically mixes the right amount of cleaner with hot water. It has a clean, rinse and dry cycle.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Used Four Times Before Failure
from Maryland, United States
While it worked, this was a great machine. Assembly was straight forward and it was easier to use and empty than our previous cleaner. On the fourth use, it just quit and will not start again.
from Bellmore, NY, United States
Was very happy to see how well this works. Great suction!
LOVE THE FEATURES
from Fort Wayne, IN, United States

Easy To use
from Sandusky, OH, United States
I bought this in January but just used it for the first time. This is the first shampooer I ever purchased what a difference from the big bulky ones from years ago!!! I was extremely happy how easy it was to use. Emptying containers was a breeze. Did a super job on an extremely dirty carpet!!!! I did it all myself while my husband watched how easy it was to use. Way to go Hoover!!!!!
Great for uhpholstery
from Moyock, NC, United States
I bought this primarily for the upholstery scrub bush and it works well. I used it for carpets and does a good job with those but I'm more impressed with the ability to have a rotating scrub brush to really deep clean upholstery.
works great with the exception of the poppet valve in waste tank
from Sellersville, PA, United States
the machine works great with the exception of the poppet vavle keeps going closed and machine will not suck up fluid.
I bought this product first because of the quality of your products. We have a cat who is 16 and has urinary tract problems. We notice that she has been urinarting on living room carpet and instead of renting a carpet cleaner we decided to purchase this cleaner. My husband and I just used it today and we are so happy with the result. I would definitely would recommend this product to my family and friends.
