Vax Power Max Rapide Classic Carpet Washer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from quite good Works really well but as others have said it leaves floor quite wet after , but carpets came up lovely

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings Due to the very small water tank that can only be filled halfway you do need to keep refilling this a lot. One tank will do a small room or rug. Doing a large room is time consuming because of the constant need to refill. I finally figured out that if you spray as you push forward then pull back slowly it will suck well and without noise. The filter needs to be cleaned pretty much every time you refill or you'll lose your hearing due to the loud whining and screeching sound. If you are aware of all thIs then the results are good. It is not a hugely powerful suction so heavy stains may need a more heavy duty machine but if you just want a cheap and cheerful ,light domestic use cleaner this is fine. One tip I'd give is to make sure you overlap on the spray and suction motion because otherwise you'll get streaks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bit fiddly! I bought this carpet washer to remove the smell of vomit from my son"s bedroom carpet. It took 7 cleans to remove the smell! in the end I had to put a capful of zoflora disinfectant in with the vax carpet cleaner liquid as the washer would not remove the smell! Even though the instructions said not to use anything else except their brand of cleaner!! You have to be very careful not to cross thread the cap on the clean water tank as if you do it wont clip on to the washer. This happened to me twice and I couldn"t work out why it wouldn"t fit on.I was just about to return it ,thinking it was faulty until my son had a look at it and solved the problem! Overall a good ,lightweight washer but I would only use it to refresh rugs, not large rooms as you would be changing the water tank every 5 minutes. The price was good though,and the quality is good. A good cleaner for light stains and refreshing only.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed buyer. Bought this small version of the Vax carpet washer I already have . As mine was heavy I thought the small one would be a lot easier to take up two flights of stairs to do the carpets. It was easier to carry up the stairs but the result it gave was nowhere near what I expected. It left a lot of water on the carpets and all in all it made more work for me. I was very disappointed as the bigger machine is brilliant, but heavy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vax powermax carpet champooer (rubbish) Got this shampooer to freshen up my livingroom carpet, it was a good price and the reviews were quite good, How wrong was i to buy this junk its not got enough power to suck up the water it puts down,i am a qualified valeter so i do know how to shampoo carpets and upholstery , it left the carpets soaking wet, and with no way to get the water out of the carpets they started smelling realy damp! Needless to say its going back to asda fora refund! Total rubbish do not buy, !!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very noisy machine that did not get out stains I bought this to clean a carpet after a tenant had left food stains on the carpet. It got the majority of the carpet clean but I did have to use a brush and some stain remover to get out the food marks, in addition to using the machine. While washing the carpet though I really wanted some ear plugs as there was a very high pitched and loud noise that persisted all the time that the machine was on and working. It was close to being unbearable.

does it still work as a normal vaccuum

can you carpet clean and use as a standard vaccuum or is this just a carpet cleaner?
Asked by: Roobes

Can you clean the stairs with it?

Asked by: Carolanne1971
It's not designed for the stairs unless you can buy attachments for the cleaner, as it is it would be very awkward to manover.
