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.

Great suction!

Great suction. Two cons a bit heavy and I do not like that in order to release the hose you have to completely release the power cord from the back of the machine. Otherwise, the cord is in the way why trying to pull the hose out to vacuum baseboards. This is a bit of an inconvienance.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

DO NOT BUY THIS VACUUM

I purchased this vacuum about 4 months ago. It does not pick up as advertised. When using it recently, I noticed the beater was not turning. Went to take it back, and was essentially told Sears company policy would not allow it. No confidence in a product that stops working after just 4 months. Gave it one star since a rating had to be entered- in reality, it is a zero rating.

Great Vacuum for the price

I was looking for a vacuum to replace and old favorite of many years, it need to have great suction, a pet brush that really worked well on my sofa as well as my stairs and I did not want it to be bag less (I like tossing a bad rather than watching all my dirt and dog hair fly everywhere). This vacuum has everything and it is 3/4 the price of a Dyson.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Huge disappointment...

Very disappointed in this vacuum! It is the most expensive vacuum I've bought and my least favorite. Wheels started squeaking after one months use. The attachment hose is VERY short. You have to fight with it every time you try to use an attachment! It ends up pulling the vacuum over whenever you use the hose. Contacted Sears through online chat and was told that there is no extension hose available. Should have bought another Progressive...never had any issues with it.

Worked for only 15 minutes!

I bought this product due to its outstanding CR review. After owning my first Dys** for 5 yrs it seemed like an appropriate time for an upgrade (although the aforementioned vacuum still works fine). I tried this unit in the store, and was reasonably impressed. After getting this home and assembling it, it worked well just ONE time... After that, the carpet agitator would no longer work. This item was a lemon, and only worked for 15 minutes! It went right back to the store, and I think I learned my lesson. I will stay away from all the direct drive hype, and stick with the major name brand(s) with a better performance history. I guess you get what you pay for...

Great On Carpets!

I just bought this vacuum today. I carpeted my master bedroom about a year ago with a really nice, thick, plush carpet that your feet sink into and noticed that it was starting to look matted. My current vacuum was not working on the carpet well because it is really thick and it had a hard time picking up anything off of it, even lint laying right on top of the carpet would get left behind. I decided to buy a new vacuum to get the carpet cleaner and see if it would lift the pile back up and make it look new again. This vacuum sucks so hard I had to adjust it to high carpet height to enable me to push it forward. Once I adjusted the height, I was able to push it pretty easily and it lifted the pile up and made it look new again! Since its our master bedroom, it doesn't get heavy traffic but you could definitely see the trail where we walk from the doorway to the bathroom. I can't see it anymore! I love it! My carpet looks beautiful again! I saw some reviews that described the dirt sensor as gimmicky, but I think it works well. It would come on and go off pretty quickly on my bedroom carpet, but when I came into my living room, it came on and stayed on quite a while which is what I expected. My living room carpet is 15 years old and bore the dirt of many children. Plus my husband is in construction and walks around on it with his filthy boots. I'm about to replace it with wood flooring, so I haven't been vacuuming it and the dirt sensor adequately reflected that. I would definitely recommend this vacuum to anyone who just invested in nice carpet and wants to keep it that way! I tried to run it over my rugs in my bathroom, but even with the agitator off, the suction was too strong and sucked the rugs into the vacuum, so I just shook the rugs off on the carpet and vacuumed the carpet clean. This is an excellent carpet cleaner!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Intermittent on/off

I had a problem with the vacuum not powering on sometimes until I realized I had not sufficiently tightened the screw that secures the handle to the upright. I had used a flat-blade screwdriver which didn't tighten as well as a Phillips-head screwdriver. The only complaint I have about this vacuum is it is too high to vacuum under my beds in the upright mode with the agitator brush. I have to use the wand and standard brush.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Wow, I love it!

I bought this vacuum based on Consumer Reports Rating. The first time I used it on 8 rooms...tile, carpet, wood, rugs, and linoleum floors...I loved the dirt sensor. It caused me to concentrate on heavily soiled areas. When I finished, out of curiosity, I checked the bag. Oh my... I must have vacuumed up almost a pound of hair and dirt. I own 3 black labs, and we just entertained a house full of people for three days, so I had "cleaned" pretty well before the guests arrived. I even took pictures of the bag after I was finished...it was almost completely full. I am thrilled and do not find it loud or unusually heavy as others reported. Also, the hose is long enough to do what I needed to clean cedar beams on my ceiling. Another thing...no smell, even after cleaning up so much dog hair. I highly recommend this model for heavy duty pet hair and thorough cleaning.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
