Kenmore — trusted in the homes of more than 100 million Americans.
The Kenmore Intuition 31100 upright vacuum cleaner transitions between bare floors and carpet easily with fingertip controls on the handle. It also features a Power-Flow dual chamber bag system that provides sustained power to clean, even as the bag fills with dirt. It's HEPA Media filtration system captures maximum debris for cleaner indoor air.
The Kenmore 31100 upright vacuum also has a beltless Direct Drive agitator, which means there are no belts to replace. Its reach out wand and tools on-board allow this vacuum to clean floors and the on-board Pet HandiMate picks up stubborn pet hair.

When searching for a new vacuum the one main feature we wanted was the ability to vacuum not only rugs but also bare floors (hardwood floors). At the same time I refuse to pay $500 plus for a vacuum cleaner- it is against my conservative cheapskate upbringing. There a number of vacuums over $500 that fit the bill but when we discovered the Kenmore Intuition upright we were sold on the features and fell in love with the price.
You can go from carpet to bare floor with a finger switch on the handle which disengages the brush. You do have to do a manual adjustment to the height- a foot adjustment would be nice but it is a minor issue that almost all vacuums encounter.
The telescoping hose was another great feature that sold us on this unit. No more fumbling with the hose- trying to hook it into the machine before you can use it- all you do is pull it out of the holder and it is ready to use.
We feel more comfortable knowing the dirt we suck up is captured in a HEPA bag and not a cup that you have to emply. Doesn't the dust fly up when you empty those bagless units defeating the purpose of a HEPA vac?
Oh, did I mention this unit sucks. My wife almost sucked up a hall rug using it the first time. As much or more sucking power than those expensive vacuums.
Let me begin by saying I am not obsessed with vacuuming. My last vacuum lasted 10 years and I only replaced it when a wheel fell off and I'd lost an attachment or two. So I'm not picky. I just want an upright that is strong with a long cord and a good wand. I thought the Intuition would cover all of my needs. So wrong. While there is a long cord and the machine has good suction on the *carpet* setting, the wand is very poorly designed. First, the twist and lock mechanism that held the two parts together kept falling off, so eventually I had to wrap it with packing tape. Second, the hose that connects to the vacuum is very heavy and stiff, so it is hard to manipulate. Third, the bracket that holds the wand to the machine at the top snapped off after about 6 months of use. Fourth (holy cow!), the wand isn't nearly long enough. Considering that I'm only five feet tall, that's a big issue if you are much taller. You'll end up wishing you were a leprechaun by the time you finish your housework you're back will be so stiff. Last, the suction at the end of the wand is not nearly what it should be. In addition to the issues I have with the wand, there is the fact that the machine ways an absolute ton. Forget carrying it up and down the stairs much. And the weight means that if it isn't perfectly straight when I pull on it with the wand hose the whole thing crashes over behind me. I must say I hate everything about this vacuum. I wish I had returned it before it was too late.
All I did was take out the full bag and replace with a new bag. Turned back on and all that works is the light and the rotator. At 15 months, it is now out of warrantee. This vacuum worked very well when it worked. It is kinda heavy. I will amend this review after I take the Vacuum back to Sears for repair :o(

Purchased this vacuum 2/13 after my old Kenmore died figured that one was from 2004, get another Kenmore right wrong after a year the hose has ripped and will cost me $69.99 to replace(and for those that do not know you CAN NOT USE THE VACUUM WITHOUT THE HOSE) and $100+ to have a repair shop fix it. Called care so sorry out of warranty really! I have purchased my last vacuum from Kenmore and sears. Stay away from this product.
We owned a Kenmore commercial vacuum, 30years.old,and the best vacuum ever. We did not think there was a replacement that was as good until we bought the Kenmore intuition. It is the best vacuum ever. Every aspect of the vacuum exceeds are expectations. This is one of the many reasons why I shop at sears.

We are using it for the common hallways in a 14 unit apartment building. Lots of power and great pick up power. Works better than the old canister.

This baby does a great job on carpets and is indeed excellent on pet hair. The problem is that the accordion hose can trap certain particles like wood splinters and then become plugged with other debris. Fortunately the "change bag" light gives an indication of this but you have to interpret whether the bag is indeed full or the hose is plugged - clearing the hose may require removing it from the machine. The other issue is that the head, while having a nice design, doesn't do that great of a job of picking up stuff at edges. It is often necessary to go after that stuff with the hose and attachments. Not hard, just somewhat inconvenient.
I bought this model based on Consumer Reports positive review, and it confirmed CR's assessment. Easy to maneuver, easy to assemble. Haven't changed a bag yet, which is always a difficult proposition, which is why ordinarily I would go for a bagless design.
