When I bought this Kenmore, it was knowing how happy is been with Kenmore in the past. This one is bagless and so easy to use. Emptying the canister is convenient and the suction is very good. It is light and the small vacuum heads reach into corners. Definitely a good decision.
I purchased this vacuum at Christmas time 2017. I am disappointed in the performance, but I am more disappointed in Kenmore and how it was made.I have had Sears Kenmore vacuums in my home for many years, and the vacuums have always performed wonderfully. Not this time. The suction is not good with either vacuum head. The wand keeps falling off of the hose attachment that I have duct taped it to stay on. The previous vacuum I had, it had a button that went in to a hole in the wand to secure it, there is a plugged hole on this wand. The biggest problem with this vacuum is trying to empty the canister. You need a couple of hands to hold the filter "attached" to the canister open to empty the canister, which is awkward to hold open. The filter is a pleated accordian type paper that has a part to zip across the pleats to get the dirt out, and there is a small brush to brush the pleats.
I am a clean freak. For 99.00 works really well. Great suction!!!! Best 99.00 I ever spent. Really light weight. Easy to around.
The suction is great- but it does you no good when the wand keeps falling off! Even being careful, the wand fell off at least ten times while I was vacuuming my house. I’m disappointed. I bought a Kenmore because I thought it was a good brand.
Terrible for carpet. Brushes stop turning as soon as it touches carpet.
Great vacuum. Bought one for us 3 years ago and just bought one for mom. She thinks it's great.
