Rated 1 out of 5Â by digy07 Great at first but...
I used this machine a handful of times for a couple of months. I went to use it again and when I opened the waste bucket a foam gasket which seals the waste bin simply separated and came off. Without this waste water would seep out of the waste bucket. This gasket is made of extremely thin foam and renders the machine worthless if broken. This should be rubber and installed in a more permanent way. Because of this I cannot recommend this unit.

Â by SteveatKohls Great Cleaner Short Warranty
Recently I was considering renting a carpet cleaner for having a professional service come out and clean my carpets after having an elderly dog in the house for the last 6 years. My carpet was looking pretty bad from stains. When my dog would make a mess I would clean by hand but it still looked bad. Then I saw this online. I checked several stores but settled on Kohls because of their customer service. I purchased online and picked it up in the store.
This is the first one that I have owned so I cannot compare with other machines but I can tell you that it cleans very well. I have attached a before and after photo and the stains are all gone.
As some one else has said the cord is on the short side.
There is also some confusion regarding the warranty. The outside of the box says one year while the booklet and Kohl's website says 2 years.
I would recommend this cleaner to anyone that want their carpet to look new again.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Carpetcleaningmonster I love this machine
This is the first time that I have purchased a Hoover Carpet Cleaner and I am impressed. I have had a Bissell carpet cleaner for 5 years and it went out,so I decided to try this Hoover. It is light and the set up is easy. I have light carpet that was in dire need of being cleaned. It removed a really big coffee stain in a couple of passes. I mean you could see the dirt being sucked up with every pass. I love the fact that it cleans very well, leaves the carpet virtually dry, and has this handy bag for all the accessories. I don't have any complaints at this time. So far all good!! I would definitely recommend.

I found this one on a list of the top five carpet cleaners. I chose this over the others since it was the lightest-- I have a 3 story house. I have done the basement with it so far and it did a great job. As others say the tanks are on the smaller side (guess it's the compromise for the light weight). Yes I had to empty and refill a couple times but it wasn't annoyingly frequent and it made sure the water was always hot. Be careful the bottle of cleaner that comes with it is 2x concentrated and has to be cut 50/50 with water. I didn't realize that until half way through and I was overwhelmed in deodorizer. :/
