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.

Annoying

Great suction, but awkward to handle. The hose has a suction adjustor on it that is accidentally pushed all the time resulting in less suction. The hose is also too short and very awkward to move around, even with the attachments. Added to the fact that this is a heavy vacuum, it makes most of my vacuuming experiences quite frustrating when cleaning furniture or edging.

Good From the Box

We have two Golden Retrievers. The Dyson we bought would clog up and very difficult to clean properly. Decided that a bag upright would be better. Checked Consumers Union. Selected the Kenmore. Seem to do the job well and the bag get thrown out when full. No need to take apart a bag less cyclone.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Heavy, great for pet hair and of course short hose

If you don't have an extension hose from a previous Kenmore vacuum, like I did, you're screwed when it comes to using the tools. I've tried to quickly use the hose for edging and it always ends up a problem.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Extremely powerful, replaced our Dyson

We had a red Dyson from 5 years ago and purchased this unit to replace it. Very, VERY powerful suction compared to the Dyson. Only con is that the attachment and wand are not quite as convenient as the Dyson. But the pet attachment is a big plus. Glad we made the switch. I do not mind replacing bags every few months.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Lives up to the recommendations from Consumer Reports!

I had just about given up on finding an affordable vacuum cleaner that did a good job on rugs as well as hardwood floors. Then I researched various brands and decided to go with the recommendation found in Consumer Reports. Great decision! The vacuum was even on sale when I went to our local Sears store, so I grabbed one. It does everything that anyone could desire from an upright. In fact it cleans rugs as well as a much more expensive upright I had years ago. Everything about the new machine is easy to use. Highly recommended.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

good vacuum, short hose

The vacuum is great. Like others have said, the hose is way too short. The short hose needs to be corrected in next year's model. Too bad that will be too late for those of us that bought this one.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
