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.

Fantastic except one thing.
What an amazing floor vacuum! It almost pulls itself along, cleans great . . . and it's quiet. Pretty good on bare floors, with the beater brush turned off. Nice upholstery tool with a little beater brush as well. Good light. BUT - what's the deal with the short extension hose???? It's so short you can only clean two or three stairs without coming up short. Then where do you put the vacuum? It's also so stiff that the amount you can extend it tends to tip the machine over. Give us a long, flexible extension hose and what more could you want.

Horribly disappointed

I'm extremely disappointed in this vacuum, and with Consumer Reports' review, which I relied on in this purchase. This vacuum is wonderful, except for one critical thing: the hose. It's too short, and not constructed strongly enough. The length is not a matter of reach per se--it's a matter of flexibility and strain on the hose. The hose is not long enough to provide necessary flexibility--to use the hose without putting extreme strain on it, you'd have to lift the vacuum up and around, which isn't acceptable. If the hose were made of steel-reinforced fabric or something, it might be ok, but it's a relatively cheap plastic. I have owned this vacuum for less than a year, and already the hose has split along the joint with the accessory attachment. We're not doing anything out of the ordinary with it--in fact, I think we've been more careful with it than usual because of our concern about the strain on the hose. I was extremely worried about this when I very first bought the vacuum, and should have known better and returned it, but I thought it might be ok because the rest of the vacuum was so sturdy and because CR reviewed it so highly. I could bring it in, as it's still under warranty, but to be honest, this same thing would happen again soon--it's a design flaw, not a manufacturing flaw. I'd rather just go purchase a different vacuum. The worst part about it is that I cannot find any replacement parts for it anywhere, so I can't even do that. The only way of saving this vacuum at this point is to somehow replace the hose with a different one that was not manufactured for this vacuum. To me, this vacuum is a complete waste of money, unless you have no need for the hose attachment. I cannot recommend it. Our inexpensive Hoover from ******, that cost half the money, lasted many many more years than this. I'm also really angry at CR for failing to account for something that was obvious to me from the beginning.

Great vacuum

I'm very happy with my purchase. The power of the unit is amazing. I couldn't believe how clean my carpet looked and felt. The only down side is the weight of the unit.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Much better than Hoover Wind Tunnel

It vacuums up with more power than any of the Hoover wind tunnels we had and has several settings for the height of our carpet

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good vacuum, but big and heavy

The vacuum is as advertized: powerful, comes with attachments, has self-propelled features, and a very long, very handy cord. To do all this it is bulky and heavy. The one feature does not have is an automatic cord winder.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Desperately Needs A Longer Hose

Vacuum has very good suction and picks up pet hair well and is very easy to push. However, the hose is MUCH too short. I would happily purchase a longer hose if one was available. We have carpeted stairs, and the short hose makes a dreaded job so much worse. I didn't use the telescoping handle because that makes it more awkward to twist the attachment to clean the stairs. So I had to use one hand/arm to hold the vacuum on the stairs and the other hand to maneuver the hose on the stair. I ended up accidentally turning the vacuum off twice which isn't a big deal, but frustrating none the less. And I used to be able to kneel as I went down the stairs vacuuming, but now I must stand to hold onto the vacuum and bend over to clean the stairs...makes the process much harder on the back. Whoever designed this vacuum with this short hose needs to use it on a flight carpeted stairs, and then come up with a longer hose.

Great Vacuum

I like this vacuum. A very long power cord. Would like to see a longer hose but I can adapt. I have two choices of collection bags but I prefer the cloth bag. Better filtration

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Better than Bissell

I have a newborn at home who's rollibg all over the place. My old Bissell was a decent vacuum for the price, but it wasn't pulling up everything. When my daughter would roll around, her onesie was like a lot brush and collected my lab's loose hair from the carpet. Bought this badboy and vacuumed immediately after using the old cleaner. I could hardly find a stray dog hair. Very happy so far.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This sweeper is more quiet than any we have had before and has good suction

It cleans the step well but the extension hose is too short. That is the reason for a "good" rating. Otherwise it would be an "excellent" rating.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good vac

Works well on carpet and floor. Very good with pet hair. Only drawback is the attachment hose isn't long enough. Even with the telescoping attachment, attachment use is awkward.
