“The filter keeps filling with dust!”

Written on: 19/05/2013

Of course it does - that's why it's there. Mine is used (quite unfairly)as a dust extractor on a small saw bench, making more dust in a few minutes than a householder will get in a month. Keeping an eye on it, and emptying the container in good time - a very simple and clean job - avoids any trouble. If your machine keeps shutting down, appreciate the thermal cut-out. It's telling you that you should already have emptied the container. If you use an Alyx, play fair with it, or buy an… Read Full Review

Does this person work for Hoover or have they got the wrong cleaner ?

Hi,

Honest. I have no connection with, or interest in. Hoover. My comment shows exactly how I find the Alyx TC1202. It was bought second-hand, looking as new, for £15. It's used every time I saw or use the router. Having read the many adverse reports, I never let the collector get overfull. So far I have never washed the round filter nor the flat pad, but always tap them vigorously and use a soft brush to remove as much dust as possible. The cleaner has never stopped through thermal cut-out. One tip. There is a third filter pad where the hose connects to the cleaner. That once became partly blocked, and I have since cleaned it as part of the filter routine.

My son, a jobbing builder, swears by his Henry, but look what he paid.

My regards to you.

Written on: 12/07/2013

Just to add to my previous comment. The suction on the Alyx is always excellent, but I admit that cleaning the filter is certainly a very dusty job. I do that in the open air outside my workshop while still wearing my equally dusty woodworking clothes, so no real bother. A householder could find emptying a real bind.

Again, my regards to you.

“Why one star? well. there was no option for none...”

Written on: 23/07/2012 by John Thompson (38 reviews written)

Awful. This chinese made vacuum sucks well, but not for long... My first one started spitting out flames after two weeks, Hoover replaced it with one which lasted just thirteen months. When you consider this was used around twenty times in my 30' Boat, rather than a daily household cleaner, this is seriously appalling. Hoover wanted nothing to do with this second failure, as it was out of warranty, and wouldn't even phone me back as promised. When it was working, it filled up far too… Read Full Review

“Nifty little machine”

Written on: 18/05/2012

I have read the other reviews on this machine, and thought oh why did I buy it... WELL ... I think it is very very good. If you are looking for a heavy duty machine, you need to buy a upright machine with rotating brushes. This Alyx, is perfect for normal domestic use.. The machine does not fall over, as another reviewer wrote, it is quite sturdy, and flexable. I find the cable wire quite long enough. The suction is strong enough for normal household duties. The sound of the hoover is good… Read Full Review

“Avoid like the plague!”

Written on: 10/05/2012 by DickScratcher (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

“Quite possibly the worst cleaner you can buy - Hoover Alyx”

Written on: 31/01/2012 by sephiroth100 (1 review written)

I bought this cleaner after my Dyson upright broke down. The Dyson was ok but was heavy and cumbersome, and so I decided that I'd look for something lighter. In the end I opted for a cylinder cleaner. They say you get what you pay for - it was coming up to Christmas - money was tight so I set myself a budget of £100. The Hoover Alyx seemed good value, given it was manouverable, stylish, bagless, with a powerful motor and the backing of a brand that invented the things. So what could go… Read Full Review

“Drives me mad!”

Written on: 12/09/2011 by gilld1304 (1 review written)

Bought this when I moved to a small bungalow thinking it would be idea for small spaces. Okay it is to a point, but it's so noisy I can hardly bear to use it and the filter clogs every time. I brush the filter after every use and wash every week. The brush bar has taken chunks out of my vinyl floor. The cleaner falls over when I use the hose and stretch it even a tiny bit. I thought I could rely on the Hoover name for a decent product. Never again will I by anything that has… Read Full Review

“don't buy this garbage”

Written on: 13/06/2011

We have had this vaccuum for 6 months and has been a disaster everyday. It has flaws in it's design which hoover won't accept. The problem everyone who owns one is very common it's hepa filter gets blocked as soon as you start vaccumming once you've cleaned filter. I contacted hoover and they sent me a new filter. It was okay 3 days then blocked again. I contacted them again and they told me to wash it in laundry. I washed it but before you can wash it you have to take filter out of bagless… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/04/2011

One star is generous. I'm on my second one and it has failed just like the first, its simply stops working. The first was replaced under warranty after about 5 months. Yes the filter clogs in about 5 minutes, is very hard to clean, the tools are a joke, the flex too short the hose to short, its is very noisy, acts as a 2kW heater. One of the head wheels come off as well. What a dreadful product… Read Full Review

Undoubtedly the worst vacuum I have ever used. I've only had it a few months and already want to go and buy a better vacuum because I can't face doing the hoovering anymore! So frustrating and bugs me you can't return these things once you've opened them and tried them. I knew instantly I bought a duffer. :-(… Read Full Review

“I bought this to replace a bagless Toshiba I wasn't...”

Written on: 28/03/2011 by ChrisHorrie (1 review written)

I bought this to replace a bagless Toshiba I wasn't really satisfied with. I assumed that hoover as vacuum specialist would be able to do a better job than Toshiba but I was wrong. The thing has almost no suction at all and the filter seems to clog up almost instantly. I seem to have had better luck than many though as mine is still running at least. What do I like about it? At a stretch I would have to say it's not awful looking and it was cheap. In a word: avoid… Read Full Review

I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing this heap of rubbish!! This is without a doubt the worst hoover I have ever bought. Bought in a rush as I was mid moving house and have just went and bought another hoover today - 3 weeks later! I've a mixture between wooden floors and carpets, it didn't work on either. Absolutely no suction whatsoever!! Avoid at all costs!!… Read Full Review

“The WORST hoover that hoover have dared sell openly....”

Written on: 22/03/2011

The WORST hoover that hoover have dared sell openly. The company knows this is a duffer, that's why it is cheap, tacky, under equipped and a total pile.
I bought last year, just get told to clean filter. Rubbish. UTTER RUBBISH.
What I like about it is when it is in the cupboard and I cannot be reminded I own it.
I wish I had read these very fair reviews… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/02/2011

I really really wish I'd read some of the reviews here before purchasing the Hoover Alyx vacuum cleaner. It is a truly lamentable product, a sham of a device. It has a fundamental design flaw in that it uses a filter that requires regular cleaning, yet this filter is simply impossible to clean. I've tried countless ways - washing, shaking, poking with a cocktail stick - I've literally spent hours trying, all to no avail. I've just tried to tidy my flat, and this product has been so hopeless, I… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/01/2011

Can only agree with the other comments. There is absolutely NO suction. I know it was cheap and cheerful but it's questionable that it's fit for purpose. Comet have been helpful so far but by the sounds of things we've bought a duff product so I don't hold out a lot of hope on getting much help from them. If anyone from hoover reads these comments they should offer a product recall because at the moment I, and I'm sure many others, will never go near another Hoover product again… Read Full Review
