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 this machine because it has a rinse mode where the new Bissells do not. The machine works great and my carpets look new again!!!

Brushes don't rotate when cleaning carpet
By Jerry W
from Waukegan, Illinois
The brushes quit rotating the first time I used my new Power Scrub FH50150. The troubleshooting guide says to clean the filter screen for this problem. The filter screen had very little lint on it but I cleaned it. The brushes still don't rotate even when the brushes are elevated off the carpet.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I purchased this item after another I had finally broke. While I liked the other it always took forever to clean it out after using, so I was looking for something that worked great and had an easy clean up. This carpet cleaner was a snap to put together and had all the accessories you would ever need and is as light as a feather. The first time i used it I was in awe of the dirt that came off my rugs. I love the rinse feature and clean up was a breeze because of the double tanks. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because I only used it once. I would recommend this cleaner.

We have a large home with lots of carpeting. Wasn't happy with cleaning services so I researched reviews and bought this hoover. Love it! Cleans easy and quickly. Carpets look amazing!
Bought this Hoover 11/09/2016. Used it once so far and really like it. Like the rinse on it. Had a Bissel (3) and after awhile it quit sucking up the water. Love the 2 containers. So easy to clean and see the dirty water it's sucking up. So far so good.
Great feature's, easy to use
from Knoxville, TN, United States
I like that the water and soap are seperated, and you can shampoo or rinse with the same machine. It was easy to put together, and to figure out quickly. I did go over my rugs quite alot to suction out the water, but the rugs were still more wet than I would have liked. All in all, it is a pretty good shampooer.

Pleased with Results
By Bill B

About 90% of stains are gone from our 20+ year old living room carpet. Other stains are at least less noticeable. I do have to refill and empty tanks more often than the rental units. Our old black cat has met her match!
Works very well, and easy to use
from Colfax, WA, United States
It is easy enough to figure out without even looking at the owner's manual, but I did read it thoroughly before operation of the machine. When the holding tank starts to get full, it becomes more difficult to push. It made the palm of my right hand sore. You can only realistically do a 10' x 10' section before have to dump the holding tank and refill the water/solution reservoir. I guess that's acceptable given it's cost to benefit value. Lots of plastic parts. It is also best to rinse, wash, then rinse again. I would have given it 5 stars if had been MADE IN THE USA. The other negative is where the plug exits the machine. It's down by the floor and I stepped on it numerous times in my back and forth passes
