  • Summary: These cleaners have two positives. They are inexpensive and they are far cheaper than a serivce company and you aren't using a machine that will rarely be clean. The biggest problem is not Walmart but Hoover. they are not made to survive intact more than two years. I have purchased a number of these over the years knowing that they will either leak, the brushes quit, or the water pickup will end up with a defective seal. Never while in warranty though.

  • Summary: We read hundreds of reviews for residential carpet cleaners and it came down to this and a Bissell Liftoff Deep Cleaner. Purchased this unit and Walmart definitely had the best price. Item arrived quickly, was fairly easy to put together. Quick instructions in box were easy to follow. LOVED the 2 tanks. Only problem was I put machine together in about 10 minutes, filled it up, went to clean rug and entire tank of water and solution dumped out.

  • Summary: I have used this product from a friend with reasonable performance. I decided to purchase one from Walmart. I experienced an Out-of-Box failure with my unit. Water would pour all over the floor, so I called Hoover Support. They recomended that I take the unit to local Hoover rep for warranty service. After waiting at the store location for 3hrs and no one showing, I decided to try and repair myself.

SteamVac F5914-900 broke down after six months

alandevyg, Amazon

  • Summary: This item got mostly favorable reviews so purchased it in October 2012. It had a 3 month return policy. Unfortunately, it lost its suction and with no warranty, it was a waste of money. My suggestion, do not purchase on line and without a one or two year warranty for repair.

  • Summary: I purchased this cleaner March 11, 2011 and when I used it for the first time, it exceeded my expectations! Unfortunately, the second time I used it on March 28, 2011 it had stopped "sucking" water. I immediately boxed it up and exchanged it at WM. I've used the "new" one 3 times and on my 4th try, August 6, 2011, it once again stopped "sucking" water. I've boxed it back up and will return/exchange it again this week.

cheap parts.pain in the rear.works well.

  • Excerpt: despite the VERY cheaply made parts that DON'T fit together properly (or some at all), the machine cleans well. Whatever engineering genius decided it would be a good idea to 1)insert the power cord below the hose to knock the hose off every few minutes and 2)make it a super-pain-in-the-rear to use the hose at all by having to remove EVERYTHING just to connect it should be shot. If I had to use this frequently I would have returned it.

Not my fav

  • Summary: I bought it 2 months ago and so far I don't like it like other customers. First it leaves water on the floor and after dried you can see trace of water. Second maybe my house is soooo clean, I don't see the water gets very dirty and i can't even vacum 20% of the water back. Finally it is heavy to use with one hand for me.
  • Cons: noisy heavy leaves water on the floow

Disappointment

ittybitty, Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: I was very happy with this carpet cleaner to begin with. It cleaned very well and dried the carpet nicely. After one year on the dot the trigger for releasing water broke. The broken part is easy to reach: just one screw away. The problem is that everything inside is flimsy plastic. Plastic hinging on plastic doesn't last too long. Without this little piece the carpet cleaner is useless.
