Best Vacuum I have ever bought!!
I have bought many other machines, this one by far exceeded my expectations. I bought the additional bagless attachment which proves how well this machine works. I am a clean freak and the dirt and dust this machine has gotten out of my carpets is fantastic. So happy with this purchase. Works well on carpets and tiles. Our carpets are really thick too.

Great suction but lifespan is short
This product is absolutely amazing in terms of suction and works seamlessly from carpet to floor boards. With out first one the hose kept slipping out from the main body - the lock didn't seem to click in after a few months. We continued to use it although problematic - next the power head failed. We bought a second one but the head failed again after less than 2 years use - a great product like no other when it worked but the equipment life span is not reliable and is short particularly given the price.

Great suction but power head and handle rod socket keeps failing
Love the suction and when the power head works it's fabulous, however.......the power head and handle rod have now both failed for the second time. Don't like the ordinary carpet/hard floor attachment because you might as well just push the dirt around the floor with it so have always used the power head. We're way out of warranty (owned for about 4 years) and won't be getting it repaired again because it's highly probable that it will fail again. They don't make vacuum cleaners like they used to. I bought an Electrolux 40 years ago that was st...ill in good working order 18 years later. So now I've bought a cheapie from K-Mart ($29). It has its faults but at least when it breaks I can replace it without breaking the bank. In my experience, these days, expensive vacuum cleaners are just not worth the money.

Love the suction, great for pet hairs
I love this machine it is great for cleaning carpet and the power head I love and being a pet owner it does a great job on hairs and odours, there are two things I’m not happy with, the cord is extremely short so I use an extension cord which is a pain and it is hard to recoil back in the machine and the other is it drives me mad I can’t vaccum under the beds as the head lifts as you manoeuvre it.

Regret buying this vacuum
I have only had this vacuum for six weeks bad design tube Handle rod and power head constantly block I spend more time pulling it apart than cleaning floors disappointed

It's not as great as what you think - do your research
I purchased this product approximately 5 months ago thinking I had done my research and this was the right fit for me. Unfortunately I was wrong.
I previously owned a Miele vacuum and was happy with it but for going through excessive amounts of bags (I live on a cattle property where it is extremely dusty). I was very keen to go away from the bagged vacs for this reason but was advised by salesperson against it due to damage to filters. Godfreys recommended Hoover Allergy with dust diverter, I thought this would be perfect and in theory is...

Powerful vacuum cleaner
Powerful vacuum cleaner that does a great job especially on carpets micro filter needs to be cleaned regularly. Saw that one lady washes it after every time she vacuums which is probably a good idea, as it blocks fairly quickly. But it is there two pick up fine dust which it does a great job of doing. We love our vacuum cleaner, It's great.
A really good bagless vacuum
I've been vacuuming my floors with a Dyson DC01 which I bought in 1998 but finally the motor burnt out so I had to buy a new vacuum. When I bought the Dyson bagless vacuums were few and far between. But now it's different and so I bought a Hoover 7011PH Allergy. Now I thought the Dyson even in it's old age was still doing a good job because every few years I took it apart and cleaned it all out. But after using the Hoover how wrong could I be. After doing the house I weighed how much dust from bare floors and ingrained dirt from the carpet the ...Hoover had managed to suck out. It weighed in a 3.5 kilograms. Oh my what a shock. Yes this vacuum definitely does a better job than my old one. It comes with many attachments but only two ( the crevice tool and dust brush are housed on board) the rest are loose. As usual I cleaned the HEPA filter in cold water after I'd finished using it. It's quieter than the Dyson upright and the power head tool has three different height settings for carpet. The power head is not designed to be used on timber floors or tiles. But a separate floor head attachment is supplied. I was told not to wash the carbon filter (on the rear of the vacuum cleaner near the power cord) in water as it drastically shortens it's life as it's made of paper. That's no problem I used my air compressor and a trigger attachment to blow it clean. My air compressor is fitted with a water trap so it only blows dry air One thing I have found is that the telescopic tube is a bit thick and it's hard to get behind furniture with the crevice tool or dusting brush attachments. I'm lucky as I have my recently deceased mother's old vacuum a Miele and it's two piece stainless steel tube fits the Hoover handle with no problems and all the Hoover attachments fit the Miele tube too. The Hoover telescopic head is so thick because to carries not only the tube the dirt gets sucked up through but also the wiring for the power head. I only use the Miele for vacuuming out the car and it's tube was just sitting around waiting for a use again. This may void a Hoover warranty but I can't see how. I also wash the entire cannister part of the vacuum. Under the HEPA filter is a screw which once unscrewed enables you to separate and wash the entire cyclonic part of the vacuum. Over time that will become clogged with dirt and the vacuum will decrease in performance.

The best $630 I have spent in a long time.Very happy!!!
I have 2 German shephards. The dog hair on my carpet comes off so easy with the Turbo button on the power head.
No more sore back.The vaccuming is actually enjoyable to do now.
Very happy, so glad i brought this product, i had to write a review for all pet owners with dog hair problems.

Filter needs cleaning every time it is used
Worse vacuum ever. The filter light comes on before finishing the house. Long strands of my daughter's hair winds around the rotating brush instead of going into the canister which then needs to be cut off. Returned it to Godfreys Nunawading who used another vacuum to clean the fiter then said it was fine. Do not buy. Head hard to get off sometimes.

Worth the investment if you have pets!
I have black carpet and a white cat plus 2 small children living at home, so this vaccum is paramount. We purchased specifically for the attachment head that spins and grabs any hair extremely effectively. After having cheaper brand vaccums that just drag dust and hair around, We couldn’t live without the Hoover Allergy.

Hoover allergy ,power head vacuum
Basically a great machine but when pulled along tends to tip over ...key is to keep filters clean An does great job...all the attachments are great ...would recommend one to anyone who has pets .found if you keep the thing clean An blow air filters out on regular basis works wonders
The Hoover Allergy 7011PH has terrific suction, picks up far more than my Dyson barrel cleaner. It is however extremely heavy on the arm, difficult to manoeuvre and the hose consistently kinks. It has an additional filter attachment on the stick so you can see what's being collected but this attachment tends to tilt the handle between the hose and the stick making it harder to manoeuvre. Disappointed as I can't use it so I depend on hubby to do vacuuming.
Multi heads to get in all places, renews carpet to look as new. the power head is easy to pull head appart to clean the brissles.. has lights on the power head which make it fantastic to see if there is any spots you have missed. great on carpet and good on tiles too. love it
Great for deep cleaning
Bought this after mine died. I thought my old one did a good job but then I whizzed this one around the house - especially carpet and rugs - and wow! After using it on my 'clean' carpet, the Hoover revealed just how powerful and effective is.
It comes with all the usual accessories that are great for furniture, the car, skirting boards etc.
The only drawback is that the powerhead doesn't tilt enough to get under beds and couches.
Questions & Answers
It has started with a very very loud noise!!! No blockage. What's the reason?
Maybe the motor or something else?
Also how to disassemble the unit in case there is no luck to fix it? I would like to see inside.
It is a bagless allergy unit. It's just 2 years old. Don't tell me it's the time to replace it as I paid over
$600.00 for it.
We are sorry to hear of the issues you are experiencing with your machine.
We would recommend taking the machine into your nearest Godfreys store, with proof of purchase, to be booked in for further inspection.

Hi, do they charge for inspection?
If the machine is within the 2 year warranty period there will be no charge.

The handle of my Hoover Allergy 7011PH vacuum cleaners has snapped after 4 years. It is obvious it is a design problem as the weight of the motorised head and stick are way too heavy for the thin plastic end of the hose connection. Replacement is available on order with no guarantee of delivery date ( at least weeks). Am so disappointed as the vacuum was expensive and never thought the parts would just break like this. As part is around $100 not sure if to just go for something else or replace hose as it is a good vacuum cleaner with just a design issue.
Hi Toni, I don’t like to be cynical but honestly, I’m convinced that vacuum cleaners are a huge rip off and are made with cheap materials that just don’t go the distance. I’ve had ongoing issues with this vacuum - especially with the power head which I’ve replaced once and now the plastic bit that holds it on has snapped. The rods and other bits are covered in tape to hold things together. I remember having an Electrolux vac years ago that just never gave up. I think I had it for about 18 years and then the hardworking motor finally died. Since then I’ve gone through lots of them and they’ve only lasted a relatively short time before things start to break. Very disappointed in this vac as the suction is wonderful but what good is that when the rest of the machine falls apart? Don’t know what to advise you as it’s all hit and miss with vacs as far as I’m concerned.
We are sorry to hear of the issues you are experiencing with the handle on the hose.

Thanks Dee Dee... There just doesn't seem to be the quality in most things now.
lights flashing and reduced suction and loud sound
Something stuck in the pipe?
Thanks, there is nothing in the hard pipe, but I cannot see inside the soft hose due to the grey parts at the end and I cannot take them off. What could I feed inside the soft hose to clear any blockages?
Heya - is the bag full? This has happened to me once and I think it was the full bag and I needed to replace it.
