Product Description

Kenmore Elite Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner - Performance Plus

This Bagged Upright Vacuum Cleaner offers high performance with its unique Inducer Motor with 3-D Inducer Fan. This vacuum's Direct Drive 3-Motor system is beltless, making it super low-maintenance. Modernized and improved, this vacuum includes an Infrared Dirt Sensor and a Performance Indicator. The HEPA Media filtration system traps dust, dander, pollen and other allergens, while the Pet Handi-Mate™ attachment removes pet hair. Get the performance you need with this Kenmore upright vacuum cleaner.

  • Kenmore's most powerful Inducer Motor delivers 20% more air power to remove dirt and debris.
  • Thanks to the Power Flow design, a full bag won't cause a drop in suction or performance, so you have the power you need to finish the job.
  • To keep you focused on cleaning hard-to-see dirt, the Infrared Dirt Sensor activates a blur LED that tells you where to focus cleaning power.  Once it's all clean, the light turns off so you know you are done.
  • Easy to control with one hand, the air driven Pet Handi-Mate hose and wand attachment makes getting pet fur and dander off furniture and out of your car, a breeze.
  • The Reach-Out telescoping wand helps you get to places you normally couldn’t reach, cleaning window treatments, ceiling fans and other above-floor surfaces without a step ladder.
  • Ideal for allergy sufferers, the HEPA certified filter captures maximum debris, trapping dust, dander, pollen and other allergens so exhaust air is clean and you can breathe easy.
  • The LED headlight shines in the dark to reveal dust and dirt lurking under furniture and hiding in corners, so soil build-up doesn't stand a chance.
  • From high pile carpeting to bare floors, 4-position height adjustment positions the cleaning head for optimum airflow and powerful cleaning.

Very powerful, easy to push.
Comparing this to last years Top of the kenmore, it clearly wins. This new Kenmore has the wheels as part of the lower power head which means when you tilt the vacuum handle up and down it does not effect the angle of the power head. The new LED headlights are from the Panasonic Japan canister power heads used on their MC-PA line and are much more helpful than the previous model. I turn off the kitchen light when vacuuming the kitchen tile and the LED lights seem to magnify the debris you need to vacuum. Zoom in in the photo of the front and you will see the floor plate has been redesigned to increase airflow from last years model. This Vacuum is made by Panasonic in their factory in China and the workmanship seem superior to the last years which were made in Mexico. Give this upright a try, I am confident you will Be impressed. My bet is this kenmore will run away with the Consumer Reports best upright vote this spring.

It's ok...
The wheels squeak. The attachments work just fine, but the hose is too short. It is really awkward to maneuver when using attachments. The sweeper itself works good, but gets heavy after some time of using.

Proud owner of two 31150's

I purchased one for upstairs and another for downstairs. Let me start by saying I am male, 63, I've been cleaning, vacuuming, washing and cooking since I was 8 because my mother worked. This is the BEST upright vac I've ever used. The most powerful and relatively quiet for such a strong machine. It's no lightweight, so if you weigh 125# buy another or get the hubby to vacuum. It is as powerful as a canister but has the ease of use of an upright. The convenience to have onboard tools at your fingertips when needed. The dirt sensor I thought was a joke, until I realized it really does work. Just two weeks old and I've filled a bag! For kicks, I opened the bag outside to see what was in it. I have 2 cocker spaniels and one short hair cat, so I knew there was hair. The house is over 3600 Sq Ft. so I have a lot to vacuum. What I didn't expect to find was dust as fine as powder and tons of it. It demonstrated to me how ineffective my "lightweight" vac really was. Hey, this one's edge cleaner actually WORKS! I can't say that about any other vacuum I've owned including canister vacs with power heads. So, I'm really hooked on this vac. With 55 years of cleaning experience behind my name, I think I know a good, scratch that, A GREAT VACUUM when I experience it first hand. Try one, You won't be disappointed. I love the fact there are NO BELTS to weaken and render a machine ineffective. This one is powerful and never bogs down. The turbine pet vac head is great for furniture and it also has a dusting tool and crevice tool. I ALSO have a genuine brick floor in my kitchen. A real pain to vac and scrub. This vac head is low enough to get under the toe kick of cabinets and it cleans the grout lines and the uneven surfaces with ease. There is that much suction there. Satisfied? I'll say. I would have to be running out and buying two!!!! BTW I don't nor have I ever Worked for Sears, Kmart or any affiliates. So I'm not trying to sell products for them, just trying to help people make a wise decision on purchasing a vac they may be on the fence on.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good on carpets

I bought the vacuum mainly for the carpets and it does a great job on them. Not so good on the hardwood. My complaint is that the vacuum is very heavy. I find it hard to push.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It sees the dirt!

The suction is so strong it is like the carpet pulls up with each pass. The lights on the front and the blue dirt detector are nice features and help with knowing how fast or slow to go over a certain area. I haven't gotten the hang of the pet hair attachment because it the suction is so strong.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very nice for the $$ and it's quiet.

I wasn't really sure about this purchase as there are some negative reviews. I'm really glad I didn't let them sway me away from this cleaner. I have two dogs and a cat. This makes my carpets look like they've just been steam cleaned. Fluffs the nap right up and I have light beige carpeting. I'm going to purchase another for my downstairs. This cleaner is too heavy to haul up and down stairs but the cleaning power is very commendable.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Vacuum

My only complaint about this vacuum is the hose is too short. There should be a part replacement hose that one could add on that is longer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
