Q: where is the hook up on the machine to do the stairs?

submitted by Smoothie - 4 years ago
  • A: On the front above the nozzle is a small latch/hatch/access point that is colored differently than the surrounding base. Open that and connect the hose there. If you need further assistance, please reach out to us at Hoovercommunity@ttifloorcare.com we'll be happy to help! Thanks, Joseph - The Hoover Team

  • A: Once it's hooked up as mentioned above, turn the machine on, leave it upright, and press the trigger on the handle to release soap & water. To suck the water up, let go of the trigger.

Q: Can any commercial cleaning solution be used or must it be the Hoover brand?

submitted by tlee - 5 years ago
  • A: This is my favorite carpet cleaner ever! I've always used a mixture of either Mrs. Meyers, or Mrs. Meyers and 1/4 cup bleach (never bleaches my carpet, only santizes it) and I've used even laudry soap and bleach (small amounts of each) and have had exceptional results. I think they want you to use the Hoover brand cleaners for obvious reasons, but I've always used other methods when I ran out of the cleaner that comes with the machine. If your uneasy about the bleach mixture try a little on a small patch first. But I've always put about a 1/4 cup in my full water tank to sanitize my carpet. Love it.

    submitted byJean - 4 years ago
  • A: Thank you for your question! We only recommend using Hoover Solutions with your Hoover SmartWash because our solutions are designed to work with your cleaner to provide the best possible clean. Non-brand solutions could have undesirable effects on your cleaner and floors. Thanks, Joseph - The Hoover Team

Q: What's the difference between the FH52000 and the FH5200G?

submitted by Jeff - 6 months ago
  • A: The FH52000 and FH52000G are basically the same machine, however the FH52000G is part of the 2nd Generation of the SmartWash models. The dirty water tank is slightly smaller.

The hoover smarth wash cleans carpet great bought in June 1st. The machine is easy to take apart to clean after use. However I have a problem with the attachment to clean furniture the spray mechanism continues to spray after release trigger doesn't reset properly. Tried working with customer support so far 2 hours later no response from to different chat agents. They should check those work from home employees response time it's terrible.

I bought a Smartwash +. Its the second one Ive owned. Loved the first one. The 2nd one was obviously manufactured wrong. The handle keeps falling off. I have tried to contact customer service by phone, email, and chat. I have gotten no where. Im completely disgusted. I have spent a lot of time trying to resolve this issue.

I have had this product for under a year, and have only used it twice. Today I added solution to the tank, clicked it in place, and the solution immediately started leaking down the back of the machine underneath the handle carry. Target will not take this defective product back as it has been longer than 30 days since it was purchased. I strongly recommend looking into a different carpet cleaner.

I am going to be that person who says they never write reviews but it is true. I had to write one on this purchase. This machine is fantastic. I was able to clean 6 large rugs and carpet with no issues. It is very light and easy to push. Comes with a fairly large cord. I forgot what the actual color of our rugs was when we first bought them until they were cleaned with this machine. Highly impressed. I had no issues rolling over our plush carpet too. It picked up so much dirt. The drying-only method worked well. I just kept going until I didn't see any more water pulling up. I have not used the attachments yet. Do yourself a favor and get it.

This machine is pretty powerful it holds a good amount of water I cleaned my living room without having to put more water in half way through easy to use You have to go slow when pushing forward to wash and then backward to dry . I also like how you can take the brushes out and clean them so easy This machine also has a dry only in case you have thicker rugs that need to be dried a little more it's quieter than my last last carpet cleaner. I am hooked on Hoover I have there small car cleaner now this

I am so happy that I chose this carpet cleaner. I am a momma of two young boys (ages 1 & 6) & two fur babies. This machine is a LIFESAVER to say the least. From spills/stains on the floor to the pups coming in with muddy paws, I don't have to sit on the floor scrubbing it and wonder how I'm going to get the excess water/soap up. The smart wash scrubs, cleans, soaks up and dries the carpet all on it's own. Alls you have to do is a simple push forward while it washes and pull back while it dries. The attachment hose is also amazing! I can clean up quick spot on the carpet, my couches and even and even spills in my car. It conveniently has and auto mix solution and water tank. No measuring and guessing what is the right amount of cleaner to use, making it so easy to bring out and use right away. I love its dry only feature. I always want to get the most water up out of the carpet after cleaning to prevent any damage to the flooring underneath. I will always recommend this carpet cleaner to anyone who is looking !

Hands down this is my favorite carpet cleaner. I’ve had it for 6 years now and I recommend it to everyone. It still works just as good as the day I bought it. Suctions great. The carpet solution smells great. The fill tank lasts for the entire wash cycle for an average size room before needing to fill with more water. I love the dry option so I can dry the carpets faster since I have kids. I’ve recently used it on my upholstered couches and the attachments are easy to put together. Works fantastic. I can’t say enough good things about this product.

Be aware of security measures if ordering online

Kimber - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
Not reviewing on the item as I haven’t used it yet. I will rate that after I try it. This is purely based on shipping. Item came and was wrapped in black cords. I didn’t realize it was an alarm until after cutting it and hearing the screeching siren go off continuously as there was no way to be to turn it off. It’s still going off now. My neighbors are going to think I stole something when I put this in the trash. Item should have security tags removed from the product before they ship it. Had I known this was how it would ship, I would have purchased in store. However I purchased online because I can’t always get to the store, so this was supposed to be an easier option. I didn’t realize it would come with security measures or that I needed to go to the store to have it removed. Will include pictures of what I removed from the packaging. Unfortunately I didn’t take a before picture, but it was wrapped around the box and I didn’t see there was another sensor on the bottom.

No need to pull a trigger and the two brushes get more junk. The dry only feature helps for quicker drying time. The solution tank lasts a long time on one fill. My one pet peeve is the capture tank isn't hands free and the pieces come completely apart so you have to line them back up and get your hands dirty to empty it.

Fine and Not So Fine

CN - 2 months ago, Verified purchaser
I have used this machine twice now in 10x10 rooms (no stairs yet). I think there are some good points and not so good points. Good: it is operationally pretty straightforward. Fill the water tank, add the solution, turn on and go. It does dispense the product as stated and "dries" when you pull back on the machine. Seems simple enough. I also got A LOT of gross linty junk and dirty water when I was done, so clearly it cleaned to a certain degree. My carpet is beige so to say it looks cleaner now is really hard to say. Now, the not so good: the product really foamed up A LOT for no apparent reason at certain points. It was white all over the carpet. Also, the "drying" is not really dry at all. It leaves the carpet still damp to the touch even after numerous passes on "dry only" setting. Also, the dirty water tank fills up quickly and the clean water tank runs out quickly (even in my 10x10 room) so I dread how many times I will need to stop and reset while doing my entire basement room. Ugh. Finally once I finished, the machine had so much disgusting wet lint and hair (we have a pet) even though I vacuumed first as directed. It took me about an hour from complete start to final clean up to do my one 10x10 room. Plus about 24 hours for the carpet to completely dry. The product smell is also unpleasant to me. Fake perfume smell - just make an unscented version please. Bottom line: it will do something for your carpets but plan on it taking FOREVER. In hindsight, I think I should have just replaced my carpets with hard flooring.

This seems to be a great purchase. I've cleaned all the carpet in the house. It does a great job extracting dirt and it doesn't take long to dry with the dry only feature. I've also done my sectional, steps, & carpet in our cars.
