    This machine was purchased as a desperate measure as I couldn’t find anything better for the price.
    It is the fourth Vax washer I have owned, the first one I lost in a flood so I bought another the same as it did a good job however Having a Labrador I decided to upgrade to the platinum model which was a complete waste on money as it went rusty, despite thorough cleaning after each use, then the rotating wheels packed up then it packed up altogether and to cap it all Vax denied all knowledge of the machine when given all the numbers required. Any way I bought this one and it is ok, does the job. Mind you I went to a well known German supermarket and to my surprise there was the identical model 15 cheaper. What can I say?? At least buying from Amazon gives you buyer protection.

    Excellent carpet shampooer for the price. Does leave my carpet pretty wet after use and you can’t use on the stairs but it’s well worth the money

    It doesn’t work on the stairs so I bought the Vax spot cleaner for the stairs which it great. This one cleaned the carpets really well. I was shocked at the colour of the water. Quick and easy to use – I could assemble it myself easily and I am not good with instructions. Very good price. Does the job well. Happy customer.

    I am pleasantly surprised by the outcome….I spent almost 2 years on my all fours cleaning the carpet as previous cats lived here….Now, my puppy has ‘accidents’, mostly on the carpet….The carpet looks new, now…. the smell almost disappeared as I can see there were some years of not washing the carpet properly….

    Product is good, but a serious issue which has occurred for us. The rubber washer that “plugs” between the clean water tank and the chassis has popped out. So there’s no watertight seal between the two, meaning water escapes out of the back of the machine (when tank is clipped in, and machine is not running or handle pulled to dispense).

    I’ve put it back in a number of times, but it keeps coming out. So I may need to dismantle the unit, super glue it in.

    Other than that, this does a great job of cleaning the carpets.

    We bought this one as a “budget” and a “quick fix” solution (we’re aware there are more expensive units around), and honestly, I think it’ll do us for as long as it lasts.

    Only fiddly think I don’t like, is dog hair gets stuck in the slit of the vacuum head (which sucks up the dirty water). I use wooden marshmallow sticks to separate it gently enough to allow me to use our shower hose to wash the hair out. I suspect there’s a animal machine which is on offer that can deal with hair, but we haven’t looked, but is something I’ll look out for when we’re in the market for a new machine.

    Excellent product. This replaced an older cleaner I had which did last fifteen years so good service but this replacement is so much better with ease of use and so light to handle which is great for someone who is elderly.
    Congratulations on an excellent product.

    Fabulous carpet cleaner, albeit not for stairs or upholstery as there is no attachment supplied, I don’t even if there is an option to add one ?

    * Breeze to set up and use with fabulous results
    * Super light & easy to manoeuvre

    * A bit noisy
    * Can’t remove front section for cleaning without dismantling guard
    * No upholstery option

    Overall a good 9/10, excellent results from what was a warehouse purchase – as good as new with only damaged packaging

    Once the Vax has been sorted it has cleaned out coffee, grease, tea out of our new carpets, top job….it’s light and portable and cleans sooooo much better than just using a vacuum cleaner alone…

    As per the buying however, I brought a returned item for a bit cheaper, however upon opening it was missing 2 bolts to hold the unit together , I substituted these with some I already had and set it up to use, however once I’d filled it with water and put the reservoir back it proceeded to leak out water everywhere…. Turns out that a critical washer was also missing , I’ve managed again to sort with ingenuity and some rubber hose… And it works a treat now and no leaks…..

    To sum up good product so far ,buy a unmolested, new,one as still worth the price and miss my problems…..

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersFor 100 GBP, it does the job. We have two dirty polyester / plastic carpets and are renting. With a small dog he was scratching a lot so we wanted to clean. A professional clean would cost a few hundred so we grabbed this on sale.

    It’s pretty bulky, although we can hide it away on a shelf in the boiler room, and hard to do corners, etc but it does the job.

    From a full tank we can do an entire small bedroom, and need a tank and a bit for the main bedroom. This sucks up a lot of gunk, hair and dirt. Attached is the material and dirty water from a small room.

    The machine struggles a bit with hair, it gets stuck around the roles and difficult to clean. There’s a pet version I saw after buying, maybe that’s better?

    All in all, does the job: 4/5.

    From 100 GBP: takes up a lot of dirt!

    I bought this as a cosmetically damaged item from Amazon, but had to return it because vital parts were missing. But I bought one elsewhere and am really pleased with it’s performance. Very bad areas of the carpets do need more than one treatment but that is to be expected. I used it with the Vax shampoo

    Not really the best for stair usage and leaves carpet a bit damp if you use to much cleaning solution but definitely worth the money. Don’t be put off.

    Accidental front room flooding rectified because of this, and rest of the carpets left clean. Would recommend to anyone given the price point.

    Stupidly put three identical, but only slightly different length screws in ONE BAG , only once you have been unlucky enough to thread the lower fixing without realising, then lose the smaller screw in the handle can you then start the fun of taking the handle to bits( not part of the install) and then plugging the over worn hole from the 1st screw with a cut down rawlplug so you can start again.

    No parts list either, that would show the screws being different, beware!

    Golden Review Award: 2 From Our UsersI purchased this in October 2020 to replace a Vax Rapide I owned which was leaking. I clean my carpet every 12 weeks or so because it is lightly coloured and I have pets. After two uses of this machine I turned it on and the brushbars stopped rolling and I smelt burning. It turns out the belt has snapped. I contacted Vax who advised me this is wear and tear. Not what I expected from a machine used twice. I bought a replacment belt and changed it. Immediately upon switching the machine on it snapped staining my carpet with a grey metallic like stain and stinking the house out. Again I contacted Vax to be told maybe the brushbars need replacing. These are 20 a piece I managed to get one cheap on eBay and the machine worked once then the belt snapped again. So in less than a year I have gone through 2 brushbars and 4 belts. The machine is absolute crap. I have taken it to the tip and bought a Bissell instead. I do not recommend this. Another point to make is it is very difficult to clean the machine after use so it gets clogged up with dust and pet hair.

    Easy to use with a good lifting handle. It does pick up a lot of fur and fibres which stick to the casing around the rollers and it would be better if you could clean that out easier. But I do find it very effective in cleaning my carpets.

    Used this Carpet cleaner for two large cream- coloured rugs. I went really slowly and followed the advice found in previous reviews plus the instructions. As they have not been cleaned for years, they needed a really good clean so it took me around 1 hour per rug 3 x 2m. The suction is amazing. Hardly any water left in the rug which meant quick drying time. All the stains came out and the rugs looked like new. Excellent result.

    This product is a life changer!! Honestly today was the first time I’ve used it and it’s made a huge difference to the carpets!! All the dust/muck and other bits have literally come off the carpet and it’s super clean! It doesn’t leave behind any dampness but I am following the instructions but overall I think it’s amazing!! Definitely recommend! I would like to see other scents for the carpet solutions; vanilla, sweet scents etc because I haven’t found any yet.

    his carpet washer from vax is absolutely amazing I only used it once and it brings up your carpets absolutely brilliant I bought some antibacterial carpet solution its magic in a bottle it’s a bit pricey but it does the job absolutely amazing its worth it if you have a carpet or rug that’s absolutely grubby and your thinking of chucking it out think again the vax duel power carpet brings them up good as new its really good on high traffic areas of the carpets in your home eg the hallway so if your thinking of purchasing a carpet shampooing machine buy the vax duel power it’s got rotating brush bars that rotate its spin scrub action is absolutely amazing I would highly recommend this machine

    Would have paid a bit extra for accessories to do stairs and other smaller areas like sofa. Carpets came up lovely. Need to take it slowly to get the best results so does take a long time but worked better than my previous older vax model.

    Purchased this item and two main handle assembly screws missing and after numerous calls Vax posted them.On assembly I noticed the upper cord storage hook was missing.Called Vax only to be told they could not supply as it was an old model and directed me to speak to Amazon.I was adised to return a whole unit for a small part missing,so much for saving the planet with all the costs involved,so beware of the age of a machine before buying as Vax will wash its hands of any responsibility.The machine,by the way does a great job but dread if I need any spare parts.

    Our last carpet shampooer was a cylinder model and a pain to lug around, so after it broke decided to try an upright. This seems quite good and it has transformed a tired old living room carpet which was otherwise on the verge of being replaced. The dual brush action helps and certainly shows our normal Henry Hoover which I always thought quite highly of, isn’t doing a great job at all.
    A few things to be aware of, though…
    1. It is very noisy though I guess most carpet shampooers are.
    2. You cannot attach any tools to it, so no good for doing odd corners or stairs etc.
    3. The tanks are quite small and I had to refill the clean water tank twice to do a 20ft x 20ft living room carpet. Also not nearly as much water comes back out of the carpet as goes in.

    It does also seem very lightweight in construction, with cheap looking plastic pedals and “deadman” for the water pump. Though I guess once the carpet is thoroughly cleaned it will only see use a few times a year.

    What a great little carpet cleaner this! We have house cats and over time they have accidents that have left our carpets dirty and stained in places. Rather than hire a professional carpet cleaning company we thought we’d give this a go and it’s been a life saver!

    Does a great job cleaning and carpets feel fresh and like new, works best if you do long slow strokes. Cleaning a whole room will take a while but the results are worth it.

    Easy to set up. Good value. Easy to clean. I hoovered well first as I have dogs, but was able to clean easy enough using a hose to clear the hard bits. Doesn’t dry carpet as well as others I have tried, despite going over the carpet just on suction after cleaning. 2 clean lots of water out, only 1/4 sucked back in..

    For a basic carpet washer, this was excellent and easy to move around due to the light weight. It got rid of pet stains that I had from my previous tenant as if they were never there. It also brough the carpet back to life, which meant that I did not have to change the carpets. Dare I say that this is what you call value for money. No fancy nonsensical nonsense of expresse cleaning and heated water (just more stuff that can wrong), just stright to the point carpet cleaning.

    However, there are drawback to a basic machine;
    1. There is no upholstery tool, so you are unable to clean the stairs
    2. While the suction is good, it could be better
    3. The clean water tanks is pretty small, so you will find yourself filling this up frequently

    But if you can live with the three drawbacks then this is an excellent machine to purchase

    Great carpet cleaner at a very good price. Easy to assemble and light weight. The cleaner does a great job using the provided shampoo but also worked well with a generic shampoo.
    The only draw backs are the small capacity of the tanks that mean you need to refill the cleaning fluid tank and empty the dirty water quite regularly.
    The end results have impressed me a great deal and it leaves the carpet fairly dry after cleaning.

  43. David Ono says:

    Home is now considerably cleaner and less smelly. Literally disgusted with our carpets! Most of them have now been cleaned 3 times and still getting loads of dirt out. And no end of fur from our pets our carpets are mostly decades old but we’re reluctant to replace them as the cat tears them up.
    The fur is an issue as it does get stuck in the bottom of the hoover or spits it out in chunks so it needs unclogging with every tank of water which is not that easy. That said, I just think it’s our hoovers that are not picking the hair up effectively (both dyson)
    No good for stairs sadly. I thought I had bought the one with the attachment but it hasn’t got one so flat areas only. Would definitely recommend.

    Went for the cheapest ish one as reviews seem to say bad things about all of them. Have an elderly Jack Russell and there are a few stains on the carpets. Surprisingly this did get rid of them. The suction isn’t the greatest so you do have to go over a few times and it’s not as dry underfoot as the advertising suggests, also the water/detergent bottle does empty very quickly. Overall though for the money it’s done 2 reception rooms and a landing ok and has made the carpet look and feel a lot better.

    Recently had my carpets cleaned by a company and noticed how much dirt their cleaner had taken out of them. So i decided this was something i needed and at the price this Vax will pay for itself with two cleans. One star taken away because when doing the asembly i discovered there was no screw hole (just one) to bolt the lower section to the second clean water section. But an easy job for the drill. Its also worth noteing that i found the amazon /vax videos more helpful than the instruction booklet supplied. This cleaner is just the right size for a two bedroom flat as it has a norrow head that can get into the samll areas, and when not in use i can unscrew the handel section for easier storage. Plus you get a free small bottle of Vax cleaning soution with it so no need to get exta for a while. There are chaeaper on the market but this Vax looks a sterdy maching and easy to strip down and clean. . All in all im happy with the purchase

    So far I’m extremely happy with this vaccum! I’ve never had any luck with carpet washers but this one worked wonders! I’ve got two children and a dog so I knew it would be bad, I didn’t expect it to get it so clean though! Although you do have to keep topping up the clean water and emptying it every few mins I’d be saying it’s too heavy so for me I like the capacity because it makes it lightweight. It’s easy to move around and gets up real close to the sides so you don’t need to worry it’s going to cut edges out.

    As you can see in a photo it really did collect up a lot of fluff and dirt and dirty water. I am amazed and so glad I got it!

    Only downfall is that it does leak a lot from behind, I certainly couldn’t fill it to max because it was worse. I’m going to eventually buy some glue and hope it helps. Easy to clean the brushes and cut off any hair and big enough to get a knife underneath to scrape away any dirt collected. So easy to use and very happy with the results after only one use!

    BUY, BUY, BUY! So worth it!

    This is a great carpet cleaner. It did a great job on our heavily walked on hallway and living room carpets. However it doesn’t have a stair attachment or anywhere to put one so it can’t clean stairs. Wish I’d realised this before purchasing

    Bought this some months ago and it’s been in use almost every day (in elderly relative’s room!). Dirty water tank much easier to empty than in my old vax carpet cleaner (bought over 10 years ago). Clean water tank easy to fill. Lightweight machine with heavyweight cleaning power. The only reason I didn’t give 5 star rating is because it is very difficult to clear all the fluff collecting arouind the brushes, and leaves small puddles of water on floor when left standing to empty tanks!. Highly recommended

    My Vax arrived a day early and I couldn’t wait to try it as we had had building work done in the lounge so my Wilton was filthy! Put it together pretty easily although one screw hole seemed to be missing and we had to force through the screw to get this last one in. Once it was together and we filled the tank it was a dream to use, being lightweight and see through tanks, you can easily keep check on how far you can clean on one 1 litre tank. We had to empty the dirty water after the 2nd 1 litre fill up as it made the sound warned about in the brochure. Easy to take the tank out and clean them and off you go again. The carpet was pretty dry after we finished and the carpet was 100% cleaner. Very pleased with it. Only time criticism was the trigger was quite stiff to press to release the shampoo. By the way, the small bottle of shampoo supplied is only big enough to clean one room carpet, we managed to do our lounge with it which is 16′ x 15′, so not bad, but I had already ordered the 4 litre bottle because we have several carpets to do. It is easy to use and due to its light weight, it is very easy to manoeuvre My husband is 74 and managed it easy. So glad I decided to go for this at this competitive price. I have had Bex Bissell’s before which were good but very heavy to push around so I was glad I went for the Vax. I took out the 3yr guarantee too which for 15 was a snip! Only other thing to say, I wondered how I can clean inside the head of the cleaner as loads of gunge seem to collect inside the plastic head and it is not easy to flush it out. Presume we will have to dismantle the rollers to get at it properly, otherwise I can foresee problems with the head getting blocked up!

    Used this at home and doing a deep clean at an empty property. Took the Dyson DC40 (700 watts) upright and a Titan wet/dry ‘tradesman’ hoover from Screwfix along as well. The Shark did a much better job on normal household than the Dyson despite having only 50W extra power. The Titan at 1100 watts and a big bag was reserved for the really bad stuff. Overall very impressed with the Shark

    Bought to clean all the dried up milk etc out of our toddlers carpet as it was verging on petrification at this point (honestly kids are disgusting arent they!!)
    Anyway, this has done an amazing job of lifting the muck from his floor and also all the other carpets in the house came up like new.
    Really easy to assemble and use. Highly recommended
