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.
- The 3D Inducer Motor™ combines the power of three motors to deliver powerful suction, while operating without a belt, it cuts down on maintenance and repairs.
- 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 motorized Pet HandiMate™ 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.

I have had more brands of vacuum cleaners than I can count on both hands, Hoover, Eureka, Dirt Devil and even an overpriced Dyson... When my Hoover broke last week I went searching Consumer Reports to see what they suggested and to my surprise they recommended this Kenmore Elite as their number 1 pick! Now I will be honest, Kenmore was not a brand I had even thought of when it came to vacuum cleaners. This vacuum is great, I have a new 12' long runner that sheds like a hairy dog and my Hoover left fuzz on the edges and what didn't stick to the rug got shot all over the hardwood floor. Not with my new Kenmore! It picked up the fuzz and all of the dust on the hardwood, it did a great job on the bedroom carpets and the oriental throw rug. If it cleans my blinds as well as it does the rugs and carpets I will be in heaven :). I will come back in a month or so and add to this if I find any issues with the vacuum but I don't think I will. Don't hesitate to spend the money for this!

I bought this vacuum on the recommendation of a top rating by a consumers testing agency and really love it. The list of features is beyond what my last upright vac had, including switchable beater bar, HEPA filter, microfiber cloth bag, cleans to the edge, LED headlights, extra long power cord, dirt indicator, bag full indicator...you get the idea. This vac sucks everything up!

I have had the vacuum for about a month now, I can't say it is my favorite job to do, but the vacuum has made the job a lot easier. My dyson quit on me, and I have tried twice to get it fixed, but that was not going to happen. So far so good on my new one
i like the Kenmore vaccuum because ti really has good pick up power. i have always used Sears Kenmore vaccuums in the past . they are the best . i especially liked the salelady i had this time. she really knew what she was talking about . usually you go in an get a young person that is not weel versed on the product. she knew her product very well.
I live in a 5000 square foot, three floor house with 5 people, 2 dogs, and a cat. This vacuum is amazing is perfect for it. We have about 50/50 hard floor to deep pile carpeting. I have been using a ten year old Kirby Ultimate G, Dyson DC07, and a Kenmore bagged IntelliClean. These vacuums are great, but I saw this on sale for $279 and I thought I might as well go for it, and I'm glad that I did! This vacuum is amazing. I have had my other Kenmore for almost 10 years and I love it, and this is like the improved version. I'm confident that this cleans better than the Kirby and Dyson too. When we bought the Kirby we had more carpet, but now we have more hardwood and it's a pain to get out the hose and floor attachments to clean them with the Kirby. This Kenmore is able to clean all of the floors, the stairs, the couches, everything. The suction is awesome, and it has a nice 'airflow' sound to it. My only complaint is that the hose is very short compared to my other Kenmore and Dyson. But I do have an extension hose from the other Kenmore that I'm able to use on this, so no big deal. The hose is the reason for 4/5 stars though. If you buy this vacuum I recommend buying an extension hose from Sears so that you can clean your stairs easier. I originally bought this for vacuum for the second floor but I've decided to keep it for the first floor, retire the old Kenmore to the second floor, and use the Dyson and Kirby in the basement. This just exceeded my expectations and I'd recommend it to anyone with lots of floor types. Also, people complain about the bags being expensive, but they are HEPA bags, they don't have an odor, they don't leak, and they can hold way more dirt than the paper bags. I strongly recommend spending the extra money and getting the HEPA cloth bags, they'll make the vacuum last a lot longer.

If you have pets, Teens and carpet this is a great vac. It is a little heavier but well worth it. The manual height setting is great because you can set it how low you want it to dig into the carpet and then hold on because the direct drive will take you away, oh ya no belts that burn up. We had a shark that self destructed after 5 months, never again will we buy a toy appliance. Good job Sears and Panasonic I'll be buying on for our restaurant....
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.
The design flaws that were problems on last model, wrap around hose getting clogged, and bottom clip breaking off, no self propel, were all eliminated or added to this great new model. Read reviews for the 31100, intending to buy anyway, then found this in the store. Needed a vacuum, Now! Old one broke. Very happy with the improvements in this Elite model. Good going Kenmore!
