ReviewercalledLes's review of Vax Carpet Cleaner

★★★★☆

“Washer perished”

Written on: 04/12/2020 by ReviewercalledLes (1 review written)

I have owned a Vax carpet cleaner for several years and it always worked well.

Whilst recently cleaning carpets, the cleaner lost suction. I found that the washer in the upper part of the waste water container (where the hand held cleaner utensil can be inserted as required) had perished. AIr was being sucked in to the waste compartment and the machine was not sucking up the dirty water.

I tried all the usual spare parts retailers for a replacement washer without success. I emailed Vax and they responded saying they no longer supplied washers for my model.

During a recent trip to Wilco, I found a pack of hair bobbles £1 for 24. I measured them against the size of the required washer and it looked a match.

I have tried a bobble in situ in the Tax and Hey Wilko! It works perfectly.
