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.

It sees the dirt!

The suction is so strong it is like the carpet pulls up with each pass. The lights on the front and the blue dirt detector are nice features and help with knowing how fast or slow to go over a certain area. I haven't gotten the hang of the pet hair attachment because it the suction is so strong.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very nice for the $$ and it's quiet.

I wasn't really sure about this purchase as there are some negative reviews. I'm really glad I didn't let them sway me away from this cleaner. I have two dogs and a cat. This makes my carpets look like they've just been steam cleaned. Fluffs the nap right up and I have light beige carpeting. I'm going to purchase another for my downstairs. This cleaner is too heavy to haul up and down stairs but the cleaning power is very commendable.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Good Vacuum

My only complaint about this vacuum is the hose is too short. There should be a part replacement hose that one could add on that is longer.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent Vacuum

We needed a new vacuum and went with the Dyson DC50 Animal . That vacuum was terrible and was returned the next day. We decided to try the Kenmore Elite and am I glad we did. This vacuum sucks. It has tons more suction than the DC50 and was over $100 cheaper. We have 3 dogs and it picks up their hair with no problems. The dirt sensor is excellent to help pick up the dirt not visible especially on light floors.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Awesome product!

This is absolutely the best vacuum that I have ever purchased. It picks up dog hair like no other vacuum. The carpet looks spectacular after one use. I bought it based on Consumer guides recommendation and they were spot on!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Best Of All I've Owned

When Consumer rated this highly I began checking it out and reading reviews of owners. That's usally how I make my final decision on whether to purchase or not. So far I have not been disappointed. After owning several Hoover Windtunnels that constantly needed belts replaced even after short term usage, that was another plus for this vacuum. Also the roller is easier to clean cat hair from. With a long haired cat I collect a lot. When vacuuming carpet it seems to be self propelled.

Great vacuum!

I have owned Kenmore vacuums for the last 20 years and have been very satisfied with them. They have performed well and never required repair. I purchased this one because we moved to a new two story home and wanted a vacuum for the upstairs. Consumer had the Kenmore as the top rated vac. I toyed with the idea of one of those expensive European vacuums but could not justify the high price in the end. When the Kenmore went on sale I bought it. It was the right choice for me. As many reviewers have previously stated, it does have strong suction. And after vacuuming, there is no musty, dusty smell in the air. So I know that the HEPA filter is doing it's job well. The only cons I see are having to manually adjust for carpet height by bending over to reach the **** on the front of the machine and the stiffness of the electrical cord (some cords are soft and pliable and easy to work with...this one is stiff and hard to use....not a big deal but it bothers me). Overall, I 'm very happy with this machine and would purchase it again. I would also recommend it to anyone who is looking for a top performing vacuum at a fair price.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
