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.

Canister hood gets jammed and won't closed

Fought to close the canister hood for 30 minutes the first time I used the vacuum. It took me 20 minutes to unjam it and then another battled to insert it again, ridiculous...

Powerful, but...

This vacuum is very powerful. The suction is terrific. But it is so heavy that maneuvering it is very difficult. My main concern is that the beater brush has been disintegrating since the day I got the vacuum, leaving tiny red bristles strewn all over the house. I've had it for 5 months, and half the bristles on the brush are completely gone, which has, of course, severely affected the vacuum's ability to pick up stuff off of carpet. I bought this because Consumer Reports rated it as best for pet hair, It can't pick up pet hair without bristles on the beater brush, So disappointed.

Great vacuum with one important exception

As many have noted, the hose is far too short and there is NO extension available. Because it is too short and the angle of the attachment, it bends too much. It failed after 3 months and I've been waiting for 2 weeks for a replacement - Sears has no idea when the part will be available. This vacuum is built by Panasonic for Sears and they can't seem to communicate. The rest of the vacuum is very good, which makes it really disappointing that they can't get one important detail right.

Not as expected

This worked great in the store but my bedroom carpet is too thick and it's a lot of work to vacuum. Doesn't self propel. I am sorry I bought this product.

4th Kenmore

This is the fourth Kenmore vacuum we have owned. The previous one was the only one we were unhappy with: motor gave out after two years with only infrequent use. We stuck with the Kenmore line after viewing consumer comments and evaluations: for the price point this is a great vacuum ... really powerful and we continue to like the indicator lights about dirt and about filled bag. Have tried others like Dyson, and this is better.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Overall
Blows dog hair everywhere!

The exhaust port is located in such a position that when vacuuming hard-surface floors, the air exiting the vacuum cleaner agitates any debris on the floor (in our case, fluffy dog hair) and makes it air-borne. We have to vacuum the bare floors first with a canister vacuum and then use the new Kenmore Elite on carpeted floors only. The unit is poorly designed and tested. When the unit is in ?handle release? mode, it positions the exhaust port over the floor area behind the cleaner and stirs up anything on the floor. The exhaust should be more defused and more to either side of the unit. The unit is NOT for homes with hard-surface flooring.

Need a long flexible hose

Make an extension with a head for floors to get under furniture on wood floors. This is a nice machine on rugs but terrible for stairs and wood floors--dust goes everywhere!! Please consider making a flexible extension hose with a floor head!! Would improve this model greatly then I can click on 5 stars!!!

Overall
good vacuum, bear claw useless, hose adapter required

The vacuum cleaner works well as you can tell from other reviews. I wouldn't mind the length of the hose if it were a standard size. You need an adapter if you want to attach an extension. The bear claw for pet hair works a little and then becomes useless. Having taken it apart to remove cat hair from ours, I find that the vacuum is not sufficient to turn the brush. I have made sure that the collar that controls how much vacuum you get is correct and that everything is back in place. The similar device on the Eureka Boss worked well on that machine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
