The Maytag M1200 Upright Vacuums has been discontinued.

As an alternative we recommend the Sebo Essential G Upright Vacuum Cleaner.

The M1200 from Maytag is hands down, the most powerful upright vacuum we have ever tested. This cleaning machine is able to remove dirt embedded so deep in rugs and carpets that it simply eliminates the competition. In fact, the suction on the M1200 literally picks up dirt and debris out from your carpet and pulls it through the air (you can see it) where it is captured inside the sealed system never to see the light of day again. The Maytag M1200 is able to accomplish this thanks to a unique, patented technology called MO2OR - a Dual Intake System with two individual motors that provide unparalleled cleaning suction in combination with the intense vibrations caused by the brushroll. Understand that suction is definitely an important element to cleaning but without vibration you will not be able to fully clean a carpet or rug. Maytag's high-quality, metal brushroll with replaceable brushstrips agitates your carpet fibers, releasing dirt that has been there for years resulting in a deep cleaning your carpets have not experienced. When cleaning ceilings, corners and other hard to reach places, rest assured that the wand and miraculous stretch hose will provide you with more than enough reach - up to 17 feet! The M1200 upright vacuum also features high quality rubber wheels, full bag indicator, self-sealing bags and a 35-foot power cord. Superior levels of filtration, a self-sealing bag which holds 20-times that of competitor’s bags, and durable, high quality construction makes this the last vacuum you ever buy. Includes a crevice tool, dusting brush and upholstery tool. Features a 5 year, bumper-to-bumper, manufacturers warranty and is proudly designed and assembled in the USA.

Everyone knows and trusts the Maytag brand for good reason; quality, durability, efficiency and time proven reliability. These traits have been used to describe the Maytag brand for decades and now with their new floor care line, you can experience superior cleaning technology from a product that is designed to last for many years. The Maytag M1200 vacuum is the most impressive upright vacuum we have had the pleasure of using.


  • The most impressive suction we have experienced with an upright vacuum
  • Sealed HEPA filtration system will never emit dirt and allergens back into the air
  • Self-sealing bags eliminate the possibility of debris escaping during disposal
  • Two motors equally distribute suction between the powerhead and the wand & hose
  • Cleans carpets, rugs, hard surface floors and hard to reach areas
  • The vacuum lays down flat allowing you to clean under beds and furniture
  • The telescopic wand and hose is convenient and easy to use
  • The stretch hose is the longest hose we have used and retracts back into shape every time
  • A very long 35-foot power cord ensures you won't be cleaning from outlet to outlet
  • The bag is huge and holds more than 20 times that of a bagless upright
  • The natural dusting brush bristles are extremely high quality to ensure no marks will be made on furniture
  • The brushroll bristles are easily replaced


  • When the second motor is engaged for carpets and rugs it is louder than expected
  • At 21.5 lbs. this may be too heavy for some people


Every once in a while a product comes along that makes our team want to stand up, wave our arms and scream for joy. The new Maytag M1200 evokes such feeling of glee and awe with our picky team of product experts and testers. The fact is that over the years we have tested virtually every brand on the market and all new releases for those brands. So, we know our vacuums. This upright vacuum from Maytag stands in a class all of its own and we recommend that when shopping for an upright that you pause and give the Maytag M1200 serious consideration. It is ideal for the allergy or asthma sufferer but speaks to the clean freak in all of us. The bottom line is that in a world of cheaply-made, throw-away appliances we could not be more impressed with the quality and performance of the Maytag M1200 upright vacuum cleaner.
