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.

Easy to put togeather, use and cleans wonderfully
from Twin Lake, MI, United States
I just bought this rug scrubber, I have used it twice. Love it. I bought another rug scrubber and put together and it did not work. Took it back and bought a Hoover. It was a very good decision to make. Love this rug scrubber, easy to put togeather, easy to use and cleans wonderfully.

I bought this because I wanted the attachments and something lightweight. It was easy to use on the carpet. The problem came the first time I used the attachments. There is a hose that connects to the unit and the hand tool, with a trigger to dispense the water/soap. The trigger stuck in the open position spraying water and soap all over by the time I could turn off the unit and push the trigger closed. While I was using it, it stuck about 50 of the time. It's difficult to push it closed because it becomes wet and slippery. It did a fair job cleaning a cat tree. I also do not think the stair attachment will be very helpful. The hose is not long enough to do a flight of stairs without carrying the unit with you. It is a bit large to fit on a step.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Used for the first time today and did a better job on some old stains than expected. Easy to use and clean up after is easier than some of the older models. I love the rinse feature which many models do not have.

This unit was extremely easy to operate & understand all the features. It did a great job on carpet & stairs. It appears to be fairly durable for an in home unit.

About Me Homeowner
Pro; For the money this machine works great. Picks up most of the water, carpet is pretty dry and clean when your done. This machine is not to heavy, Con; Water tanks are small and need to be change a lot, but that keeps the weight of the machine down

I brought this just before the holidays to try to get some spots off of my stair carpet and how great it worked on the stairs. It also worked great on the carpets and so easy to use not too heavy to carry.

I used my new Hoover the second day and I was amazed how easy it was to use and clean this power scrub!! The 2 separate containers for cleaning products and the dirty container made it hassle free!! The rotating brushes are amazing and the rinse after wash!!! What a great purchase!!!!
Great all around cleaner!
By Pauly Ka

Was needing a new carpet cleaner. Only looked for Hoover since I already have a Hoover vacuum. Saw this one online and read reviews and was very positive. And they were right. Good power, not too heavy with a full water tank, has soft hum from the heads turning but not loud at all. All in all got the job done. Another great Hoover product.
