I have read the review above, (MAD) and I do not know what they are talking about.
I have just purchased this machine and used it for the first time today, it is a great little machine, easy to assemble, easy to use, (If you read the manual FIRST).
It did not leave the carpet soaking wet and did a really good job of cleaning it.

Wanted a small carpet washer just to do rugs This vax would have done everything, had I needed it to.Like other reviewers I found it quite noisy, especially on flatter surfaces. It can whistle in such a high pitch, it actually hurts your ears, so BEWARE! I found it much better to squeeze the trigger very quickly two or three times as you push the vax and this is enough not to get your carpet too wet...yet sufficient to clean. Try pulling the vax back slowly over the piece just done, this will take the water through a lot better. I found if you empty the dirty water frequently and rinse out at the same time, it not only keep the vax clean but also avoids any dirty water going astray. Also look at the side of the clean water tank to make sure you only fill to the marker and try not to add too much shampoo as this may result in a sticky pile on your rugs or carpets. The pedal was a bit tricky at first as I tried to click it down hard. All it needs is gentle pressure and click the handle down instead of the pedal. It's a powerful little washer and after having a big vax machine in the past, I'm really pleased I picked this one. It's light, easy to assemble, easy to push and pull (especially as I suffer with back problems) and does the job just as well as my old vax. All in all I would certainly recommend this machine.

I have only had this cleaner a few days and had a few teething problems. I posted a few questions on the 'Questions? Get fast answers from reviewers box'. Thanks to all those who kindly replied.
One problem I had was the machine became very noisy. Some of my answers from reviewers pointed me in the right direction. I had not realized it , but my 14 year old Dyson vacuum was less efficient than it used to be- hence my carpets still held quite a bit of dust and fluff. therefore the cleaners filters quickly became blocked. There is a second filter which, for some strange reason,is not mentioned in the instruction book. When you lift out the dirty water tank there is an approx 1"x 2" outlet in the machine that holds the second filter. This was the one causing the problem. Even though I have purchased a new vacuum I am having to clean this filter several times- as soon as I hear the noise build up. It does not take long and I trust that after several more vacuums and shampoos things should improve. I also noticed, now I am keeping this filter clear the dirty water tank is taking in much more dirty water.
I also experienced fluff etc getting trapped in the clear plastic front (where the orange arrows are). This has largely improved since sorting out the filter problems
The other question I did ask was 'Is it OK to use 1001 3 in 1 carpet cleaner in this machine as it is much cheaper than the Vax liquid. It does say on the 1001 bottle 'suitable for Vax machines', though Vax say if you use other cleaners it invalidates the guarantee. I had several different answers from other reviewers. One person, quite rightly, pointed out about the guarantee invalidation & said they had purchased a large bottle of Vax liquid for £6, or there about's via the internet.

I was looking for a carpet cleaner after one too many accidents from the puppy in the house and a cream carpet. I wanted something that would clean up the mess yet not break the bank as money is tight - should I pay £40 and hire a machine for a few hours or, pay a bit more and own one albeit not as powerful but would do a decent job? - I chose the latter and bought this machine from Asda as it was on offer for £50. I have to say for the money it is a brilliant little machine. If you use the vax shampoo mixed with hot water it will remove most stains - sometimes you need a second go if it is dried in but for puppy messes and even a spilt glass of red wine it had no problems.

The other consideration was ease of use and space - I already have a dyson and a steam cleaner so I didn't want a bulky machine. I didn't want one that was fiddly to fill and empty - this isn't. As for space it is really slim and lightweight. It is as easy as using a vacuum cleaner. The only fiddly thing was fixing the handle together for the first time but again nothing to worry about. For the money this machine has paid for itself many times over and I would happily recommend it to anyone on a tight budget

£60 - brilliant!

I have an elderly dog who is starting to have accidents. This has been stressing me out because trying to clean up the spots is hard work and time consuming plus I am never sure that the area has been cleaned properly. Solution! this carpet cleaner!

I have bought Vax products in the past and have found them to be excellent quality so that did influence my choice.

Easy to put together, literally 3 screws so the only thing you have to have ready is a screwdriver.

Not as heavy as I thought it would be, with my bad back, that is a bonus!

Very easy to use and it comes with a small bottle of carpet cleaner so once it was assembled I was using it.

Pros:
1. Comes with shampoo
2. Very easy to fill and clean the water chambers
3. Long cord with a well designed storage system
4. When cord is coiled up it fits properly (so many electrical goods I have purchased recently dont)

Cons:
1. As others have mentioned - the noise! It is very noisy and the high pitch squeal is unbearable. However, I just put ear plugs in when I am using it!

I am pleased with this product over all. It does what it says and I now have clean carpets and no stress.
