Kenmore Progressive Canister Vacuum - Superior Cleaning

Cleaning floors and furniture is now a simple process with the Kenmore Progressive canister vacuum. A 2-motor system, retractable cord storage, Stair Grip and variable speed settings make carpet and bare floor cleaning a cinch. This vacuum's true HEPA filter keeps pet dander and dust out of the air so you can breathe easy. From the 8-foot hose that swivels 360 degrees and reaches the highest surfaces to the horsehair dusting brush for fine wooden furniture and floors, this vacuum has the tools to get the job done.

  • The Infrared Dirt Sensor activates a red LED that tells you  where to focus cleaning power, then shines green once it's all clean.
  • Designed to make cleaning-up after pets a cinch, the Pet PowerMate™ attachment lifts hair, dander and more from furniture, rugs and carpeting in seconds.
  • Superbly maneuverable, the Swivel+ Steering System™ lets you easily glide around corners and into difficult places for an easy, fast and thorough clean.
  • The exclusive Stair Grip™ feature keeps the canister body upright and securely in place while the stairs get cleaned, for solid performance and increased safety.
  • Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America approval means this vacuum effectively removes allergens from carpets while limiting the release of dust and dander into the air.
  • 6-in-1 Handle Technology serves-up a power nozzle and floor brush, a large Pet PowerMate™, a smaller pet upholstery tool, a horsehair dust brush and a crevice tool for tight spots.

Any canister lower than this isn't worth it
I've had all styles of Kenmore canisters over the last 25 years. I have found that the models that are $350 or above are the ones with the features that make life easier and anything less isn't really worth the money.

Wand poorly made. Wiring will go out quickly.
The wand for this model is poorly made. There are dozens of reports here, ******, etc. where the wiring breaks inside the telescoping wand. Sears should recall and fix, or replace these for free. Kenmore brand is not what it used to bel

Light weight and works great.

This vacuum cleaner is very light weight. It's great for someone like me with arthritis. It works well. I like having the attachments instead of having to take out two vacuum cleaners to do one job. We got it on sale and it was one of the best purchases of vacuum cleaners we ever made. We are very happy with this product.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Easy to use

I bought this last year to replace an upright i had. It is SO EASY to use.... Cleans the carpets so well. I even use it on my tile and wood floors. Thank You for making a vacuum cleaner that picks up my dogs hair without clogging and for a pricetag. That is in my budget. The vacuum i replaced was twice the money of the Kenmore and wasn't cleaning anymore. Now, my siblings want to get a Kenmore too!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Red canister vacuum

Purchasing this new vacuum was driven by product familiarity. The old one, of over thirty years, was a Kenmore too of basically the same design. It's motor is still running strong, but it's housing is breaking up, and the front wheel as well as one of the rear ones have broken off. We are forced to drag it along on its belly. This and the intrigue of the updated features of the new one closed the deal. The extra light at the end of the wand, and the incorporated brush on the handle are two neat ideas. They make you find things which have long been forgotten, and the brush is now instantly available. It is so quiet that one wonders if it is really working the way it should, and it's swiveling head allows you to reach some very difficult places. This swivel effect, however is making reattachment of the power head a bit awkward. This power head is also a bit on the heavy side, while it's self propelling feature appears to have a mind of its own and forces one to use unexpected energy. So, in spite of all the new features, it was simply a purchase of a rather functional vacuum cleaner. The maid was not included.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Vacuum

I am very pleased with this vacuum. We have a long haired dog that we need the beater head to be able to pick up the hair and it works wonderfully. So amazing how it picks up dirt and dust. Couldn't be more pleased with this vacuum. Also like that you can control the on off switch by your hand and not having to bend over to reach the canister, that's a plus and the extra long cord so I don't have to keep unplugging it so often. The long length of the hose is great too. All that extra lengths added here and there are a great plus.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Buy

We wanted a vacuum cleaner that would work on all surfaces and for drapes too. This one has it all. The tools are handy and easy to use. Haven't had it very long but so far so good. Really enjoying it. Easy to store too.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Red vacuum review

Well...we bought this to replace our 5 year old red machine. This one sucks good and bad. Meaning good suction. They have made the plastic thing at the end of the tube much thicker so it will not fit under 5 our our dressers/night stands as our older Kenmore/Panasonic unit did. We had used the hard surface attachment under this furniture, but now the tube will not fit. Further, they have added an un-needed swivel to the hard surface attachment. When using it on carpet in a tight area instead of the carpet head, it swivels to an angle. An extra step is needed to flip it into the plane of the floor. When extending my arm using the power carpet attachment instead of moving my feet, the carpet head tips up away from the carpet as the tilt has been re-engineered, so I have to move more when cleaning. The tubes have been changed so attachments from our older Panasonic/Kenmore vac will not fit. The tube has a larger diameter. Our old red machine had numerous problems: cord rewind broke after a year, light on tube became a strobe light, rubber bumper on carpet cleaner came loose, electrical connection to power carpet head became intermittent, tube extension catch broke. But hey, these machines suck good and are relatively cheap. The issue of not fitting under our furniture is a tough one, and thinking seriously of returning it. Not sure what else to buy though.

Wand wiring sucks. New wand costs over $100

Do not buy this. The ribbon wiring in the wand will break right around the time the warranty is up, and there are no dis-assembly instructions available. A new one will set you back about $108 from sears direct. Older Kenmores are sooooo much better.
