My last vacuum cleaner expired after 24 years use, so spotting a 'bargain' in my local Morrisons I bought a Hoover Alyx. After 20 minutes use the Alyx would cut out and not start again for 24 hours! When I complained to Hoover they sent me a larger filter to replace the original and advised to clean the filter in the washing machine at 60ºC. This worked better but the filter needs constant cleaning and it takes longer to clean the filter than it does to do the vacuuming! Now after the 1 year guarantee has run out the on/off switch has packed up. Replacement 9 Pounds. I might as well buy a new vacuum cleaner. I can't afford a Dyson or equivalent so will look for a cheap bag cleaner which will be less hassle. Hoover Pah!
