I have this hoover and love it far more than the dyson we used to have. I have just had the popping up problem with the filter....so i dug out the instruction manual and read it. So, this black box is a carbon filled active air clean filter and has a life of about a year. And a year old my vacuum is!! So i rang the hoover repair shop locally, asked if they had one ro fit, picked it up and put it in. Voila!!! All back to normal. Such a powerful hoover. Does a better job than my dyson ever...

Like previous reviews, this machine works OK for a while but then filters keep popping out. This causes no suction. My machine went back twice and now due for a third visit with same fault not having been rectified. May cut losses, in this case considerable losses (£220), and like previous reviewer dump in bin. Do not get caught out like us - by a cheaper make, as you do not get good service from this expensive company supposedly providing a top of the range vacuum. All they were offering... (read more)

Great for 6 months then performance seriously declined. HEPA filter kept popping out and could only be kept in place with one foot on the vacuum casing to stop it popping open. It also makes a dreadful screaming noise. This is a genuine Miele part yet doesn't seem to fit. Bag indicator was inaccurate from day one. Motor cuts out, cord rewinder stopped locking in place, and the Turbo brush won't even lift a large clump of hair. Spent £170 about 15 months ago and about to take it to the tip... (read more)

Well I don't have a cat or a dog but I wanted a decent vacuum cleaner and this was on offer and beat the other Miele I was looking at on price. I even took out the extended warranty to ensure years of happy usage. Mistake. Within about 6 months of not excessive use I might add, the black filter started doing the squeeling thing, just like other reviewers. I phoned Miele who said I should change the bag and filters and try again. I did so with proper Miele replacement bags and replaced the... (read more)

I used to have a cyclinder Dyson, and bought the Miele Cat and Dog having used it at a friend's house. It is a fabulous product, but it appears to be cheaply made and we've had one problem after another with it. The on/off button is very temperamental, the lid to hold the tools on came off (I look after my products too) and won't go back on, the bag claims to be full even when it patently is not, the hose likes to twist in on itself which is annoying, and now the black filter is screaming...

I have the upright version of the dog and cat. This is a powerful vacuum cleaner and like most Miele machines In have owned, I was expecting the best. Well, not so. The interior on the upright is crowded and clunky, it is difficult to change the filter and when you put the bag on, there is no way for it to attach and it keeps falling off, sucking all that great dog and cat dander RIGHT INTO THE ENGINE you just paid $650 for. I think this one needs to go back to the drawing board. Wish... (read more)

We've had this vacuum cleaner for eight years and is only now starting to show it's age. We have had dogs and daughters with long hair and it does a great job picking up everything.

I have washing machine and freezer Miele and I am satisfied with them. It is more expensive brand than others but I thought that they have the best products. Now I know that there can be an exception from the every rule. I bought this vacuum cleaner and then found out that it is noisy, heavy but what's worse that it doesn't suck properly. I hope it will broke down completely that I can rid off it as soon as possible. So if you prefer easy cleaning with perfect result don't buy it. It is only... (read more)

I was delighted with my Miele to start with. I found it much better than any vacuum I'd had before - Dyson, panasonic. It's light, easy to use and move around and actually picked up ALL the time. That was until it started doing the 'popping up' trick as mentioned by other reviewers. The black filter kept popping up and the noise was horrific plus all the suction was lost. I persisted by spending a lot of money replacing all filters but it just kept doing it. The only way was to push it down... (read more)

I am about to take our Miele Cat & Dog vacuum cleaner (S6320), which is only 1 year and 6 days old, back to the service centre for the same problem which has just happened for the 2nd time in under 6 months: the air coming in to the cleaner body blows the filter out of it's pocket and pops the lid off with an accompanying scream and then the power can't be switched on by the foot button (I see other reviewers have had the same issue). To switch it on, I have to open the lid and manually... (read more)

Oh sorry I couldn't quite hear you due to the temporary deafness caused by using our Miele vacuum cleaner. It worked reasonably well for the first year and a half, But after just running out of warranty it starts SCREECHING, this is due to the black filter on top popping up all the time,it is held down by two rather small plastic hooks (sticking plasters would hold down better)the air pressure is too high behind the filter, the hooks can't hold it down and it just pops up.

The Meile Cat and Dog 700 vacuum SUCKS and that is not intended as a compliment.The only pros: good suction, quiet motor, good filtration. It was obviously designed by an engineer that has never EVER vacuumed. The hose and cord are too short. The plastic nozzle pipe is weak and broke, and the only fix is a whole new hose for $200. The proprietary pipes and attachments cannot be mixed with any other standard sized parts (like for adding pipes to reach very high places). The hose swivels at... (read more)

This is the best vacuum I have ever used. I love it and am so glad I bought it. We have 2 cats and previously had a Dyson Animal and we thought the suction was ok, but this is incomparable.

I have had both Dyson and Sebo - This outperforms them by a mile. It really does get pet hairs off the carpets and has a good strong suck. It is heavy so no good if you are a bit weak. The bags last for ages - and our farmhouse gets some heavy duty dirt to tackle. It does lose a bit of suction when the bag is nearly full. I had a problem soon after purchase. One of the plastic wheel holders cracked off. Miele were great. They collected it and sent it back mended in a few days at no... (read more)

The hoover is heavy and awkward. Whilst powerful with good suction it does not work with long haired dogs. Hair gets trapped in the roller which means you have to constantly stop and remove on top of that if you are unfortunate where the hair gets trapped in the roller and support plate it melts and siezes, rendering it useless. Basically it is not suitable for its advertised purpose. As a vaccuum it may work ok but not for our needs. Very disappointed for a Miele Product. (read more)

Miele Cat & Dog. If you have back problems,don't buy this cleaner. Changing the foot piece/brush takes some mucking around. Due to my problem back, I don't do constant bending.

The Miele was a revelation the first time we used it, very quiet and very powerful, we have three springers that shed a lot of hair, in no time the carpets were hair free for the first time in years, in the past we've had to resort to getting down on our hands and knees with a rubber glove to get...

Used to using an upright, but was considering a cyclinder until now! Its good points are .. Power, compact, and smart looking, easy bag change.
Poor points are... wheeling resistence whilst vacuuming, poor tool fitting technique, hose short for stairs, blows lots of very hot smelly air! (especially when bag part full with cat and dog hair - as its supposed to be!) a hassle! carpet attachment gets stuck pushing against carpet.

The cleaner is very, very hard to push on carpeted flooring, one of the brushes rattles so much I cannot use it, and even when the bag has just been replaced, when it is on full suction, it shows the bag is half full. Also these bags are efficient, but very expensive.

Miele Cat and Dog 700 is an excellent hoover. The extra attachments for vacuuming cat/dog hairs is really effective, but importantly the other attachments are also great and suction so far has not been a problem at all.
Its light enough to use on the stairs and sturdy enough to bash around a bit without it breaking!

I've had my Miele Cat and Dog 700 for five years. I'm no domestic goddess but it has reliably picked up black cat hair from beige carpets, along with cat litter, dried muddy paw prints and general household grot from carpets and hard floors for all this time.

Miele have really compromised quality build on this new model. The tools lid is incredibly flimsy, and if the tools are not replaced exactly in their slots, it won't close and could easily break the hinges. My old Black Diamond model was much sturdier and heavier plastic. This notwithstanding, the actual unit is good, and it is powerful, but it does lose suction when the bag fills.

I was utterly seduced by the marketing of this Miele Cat and Dog 700. It felt reassuringly solid when I looked at it in the shop and the tools seemed sturdy. I got it home and my smug feelings persisted. The cleaner had quite voracious suction and easily cleared the dog hair from both carpets and hard floors. The large turbo brush made an almost musical sound as it worked. However, on subsequent use, the suction dwindled and it became apparent that this was caused by the filling of the... (read more)
