Questions & Answers

Since a couple reviews indicate that this vacuum cleaner is not great on bare/hardwood floors, I am wondering if a universal 10" wide bare floor brush attachment can be used on the telescoping wand for bare floors. I am accustomed to using the hose and this type of brush on my hardwood and tile floors with my current upright vacuum.
Asked by: dasme
I don't know why anyone would have problems with the vacuum on bare hard floors unless they left the roller brush turned on and/or did not adjust it to the correct height. You can add an attachment to it, it has a lot of suction.

Powerful, well-designed, and reasonably quiet upright bagged vacuum with HEPA filter. We have deep pile carpet in our basement, and have to be very careful of moisture. Recently, I discovered mold under a bookcase, so we've been doing some careful cleaning. This vacuum is fantastic. The direct-drive motors in the beater brush are impressively powerful, and the suction was strong enough to pull up grime that our other, high-dollar vacuum missed. LED lights on the front light up the work area nicely, and a sensor underneath (and light on top) tells you when the machine detects dirt. Don't know how that works, but it seems accurate -- it would light up when I ventured into an un-vacuumed area, but stay off if I returned to an area that I had already cleaned. A flexible hose connects to the usual assortment of tools (crevice, brush, etc.), and a telescoping tube and suction-driven mini cleaning head are great for cleaning curtains and drapes. Overall, a very well thought-out machine, and not so heavy as to be difficult to maneuver. Highly recommended.

This is a well known Kenmore Elite brand upright vacuum cleaner model # BU1018. It comes with a 1 year limited warranty for private household use only. It has HEPA air filtration, a 3 motor direct drive sysytem, a 30 foot cord, LED dirt sensor and headlight, and a above floor telescoping cleaning attachment. The vacuum is not bagless and does require and come with a replaceable vacuum bag for collected debris. The vacuum is stylish looking and relatively quiet in use and rolls easily across even thick rugs. It is advertised as "pet friendly" for collecting pet hair and fur and having a HEPA air filter to reduce allergies and asthma, and having a separate attachment for collecting pet hair. We don't have pets, but are happy with the appearance and performance of this Kenmore Elite upright vacuum and think the price of about $280 in March of 2019 is very reasonable, and we would recommend it.

Elite Pet Friendly Bagged Upright Vacuum - This vacuum is great looking and isn't too loud when cleaning carpet. It also doesn't leave weird brush marks on plush carpeting. We like the 5 height settings for the carpet and it has a plenty of suction. The LED light, the dirt sensing light and long cord are nice features. My wife likes that it uses a HEPA filter and bag, since she has dust allergies. The vacuum picks up dirt on hard floors, but if you have a lot of hard floors, it's somewhat bulky and heavy to maneuver versus using a canister type vacuum. Uprights seem to be better for carpeted floors. A couple of annoying things are that when using the attachments, the vacuum is very loud; my wife uses noise cancelling head phones. Also, the hose collapses and tightens up when using the attachments making it difficult to do the stairs or furniture. My wife has a difficult time sliding the brush off and onto the upholstery attachment. I normally have to do it for her so she is leaving it off until she speaks with customer service, although their line has been busy every time she has called.

On the positive side, it has a powerful motor and a self-propelled feature to help you push it around the room. The cord is long so it's easy to cover a large space. There are also a lot of settings and attachments allowing you to clean a variety of surfaces. Set up was pretty easy. It came in two pieces and required only a simple screwdriver to remove a set screw, attach the handle to the main unit, then reset the screw. On the negative side, this vacuum is very heavy. We've owned three vacuums in the 15 years we've lived in this house, and this one is far and away the heaviest. If you have to move it between multiple floors, this probably isn't the vacuum for you. If you're keeping it on one level, you're probably ok, as the self-propelled feature facilitates cleaning. Also, sometimes it takes multiple passes to pick up something that probably should have been picked up on the first or second pass. The brushes can be aggressive and pulled some fibers out of a rug, although I think we have remedied that by using a different setting. It is also quite loud.

Model BU1018 As the man of our house I have done all the vacuuming for the past 50 years so I can say this is one of my areas of expertise! I am still using my reliable “Kenmore Progressive” I bought new in 2003. (16 yrs. ago never needing repairs) We installed new expensive carpet two years ago, a product called “Soft Carpet” which is a longer woven strand and has a very soft and thick feel to it. It requires an upright vacuum cleaner that is both gentle and of course cleans well. At the time we bought the new carpet I brought home several new uprights (up to $800.) and then returned each of them to the store because their brushes would all fray the end tips of the soft carpet fibers. I believe the actual terminology for it is called “blooming.” My test was running each vacuum back and forth 100 times on a section of a piece of leftover soft carpet and then looking at the fibers up close with a L.E.D. light and a magnifying glass. I compared all of them against the never vacuumed new carpet sample. None were as good/gentle as my old Kenmore so I still use it for the “soft” carpeting. I have another excellent, well-known brand I use for the rest of the house, but it too causes “blooming” of the fibers on soft carpet. I used another soft carpet remnant (see photo) and did the same 100 passes test with this new Kenmore Elite and with my old Kenmore Progressive and I can see no real differences to the carpet fibers between the two. Both units (Old and New) left an ever so slight acceptable bloom and I don’t believe you can do any better than that. The new Kenmore Elite with all attachments weighed 20 lbs. on my scale and has a generous 35 foot long 2 prong power cord. As part of the cord wrap feature there is a thoughtful and useful handle integrated on the back of the unit. I used it right away when lifting and putting it away into my closet. I like the bright LED lights and when you run it along a wall it cleans to the baseboard leaving no carpet dust stripe. It flashes blue when the dirt sensor detects dirt so you can go over the area extra times. (It’s not a gimmick it really does work) All attachments fit securely onboard and the pet brush attachment works very well picking up hair and lint on furniture. I popped open the pet brush to have a look inside and the pet brush uses the vacuum air passing over an impeller making it spin super-fast. The impeller then rotates a tiny toothed belt that drives the spinning brush roller. Impressive design and it works almost as well as if it was powered by a drive motor set up. The vacuum has 5 height settings raising and lowering an overall total distance range of about ½”. The Elite uses “O” size cloth bags which are excellent bags, I know because I have used them with my older vacuum. The unit comes with 1 bag installed and it’s easy to order more online. I can’t scientifically lab test it of course, but with combination of the cloth bag and the HEPA filter I feel it does an excellent job of keeping the dust contained while in use. The Elite works best for carpeted flooring that is the only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5.

The Kenmore Elite Pet Friendly Bagged Upright Vacuum has powerful suction and is definitely one of the best vacuums I have owned. The telescoping wand is useful and also had good power. There is a carpet setting as well as a hard floor setting and both work well. I have not used the pet hair removal attachment that also comes with the vacuum. This vacuum uses a HEPA filter and has an infrared dirt sensor that activates LED lighting to help see the dirt.

It does a great job of picking up the dirt in the carpet. I was a little sceptic of it having a bag that needs replacing but have used it a few weeks now and still only half full. Does a fantastic job of deep cleaning the carpet too. After the first go with the vacuum I used my carpet cleaner to make sure my carpet was clean. With my old vacuum the waste water would always have a lot of dirt settled in the bottom of the container but this time it was greatly reduced. It is also very easy to push around.

If you or some one in your family suffers from allergies this vacuum will be really helpful. I noticed it does not spit out any dust, where my other vacuum does. It's a bit heavy, but it rolls very easily, but I could see it a bit hard to take upstairs. I live in a ranch with hard wood floors so I didn't have an opportunity to see what it would be like to try and take this vacuum up a flight of stairs. I like that you have 3 vacuum options, you can use the wand, or the bottom with the beater brush either on or off. When the beater brush is on, it becomes self propelled. It has a light which makes vacuum under furniture a lot easier because now you can see what you are vacuuming. I found myself wishing the extension hose was longer, it does stretch, but I felt I was a little limited. This vacuum also has excellent suction, when using the extension wand I was able to clean corners and edges very quickly and easily. The couch attachment for pet fur works great too! I would also say that this vacuum is a little quieter than most vacuums. It has a lower pitch noise that isn't so harsh on the ears. Lastly, this vacuum just looks nice, it's a very beautiful vacuum. The silver and rose gold accents are really nice. I feel a bit like a millionaire when I'm vacuuming the house, accept, if I was I wouldn't be vacuuming, or would I? Because this vacuum is so pretty it just begs to be used more often, which means a cleaner house!
