does anyone know what vacuum these bags are designed to fit?

Designated 20_5007.

Is this for an RCA Whirlpool Kenmore? Looks like some sort of off-set design.

Nope. Those are 5010 bags in the Whispertone.

I will keep searching and ask my vacuum shop friends.

If anyone remembers what machine these fit, please let me know.

Whirlpool Imperial bags are the same as 5009 Kenmore bags, they are U shaped, 5008 bags are for the First Whispertone, 5010 for the second.

Perhaps the 5007 bags are actually meant for the Whispertone cleaner, shown in Reply #1? Somehow the bag that is fitted in that photo doesn't appear to sit properly.

I presume that the motor is offset to the side; therefore the 5007 bag would be offset to the opposite side, expanding to fill the available space.

It is also not unknown for a bag to be redesigned during the life of the machine. That happened to the Hoover Aquamaster/Aquaplus/Module900 machines. The original Hoover H16 bag was similar to the long Kenmore 5007 design. It was redesigned to the format shown in the pic, below.

that is not a picture of my machine. But I agree, whoever that vacuum belongs to is very fortunate. I would love to have one.

Thanks so far.

Looks like this question has been posed before. A note on the package says, "Sears Also Has a Replacement Hose for Your Vacuum Cleaner". The image shows a lady using a hose and dusting attachment vacuuming some drapes. And it does say CANISTER VACUUM CLEANER.
Models: 0643, 0663, 0673, 1650, 1650-1, 1670, 1670-1, 1675-1, 1730-1, 1740. I do not recognize these model numbers.

Those bags are no mystery. They fit the 1960 - 1962 Kenmore canister with no attachment holder. It was turquoise in color.

Do you have that vacuum cleaner and/or can you attach a picture to this thread?

Post# 393776 , Reply# 12   6/24/2018 at 15:12 by kenkart (Mocksville, NC)        

Fits the 1961 Lady Kenmore Whispertone, 5010 fits the 1962 Whispertone 90, I have a bunch of genuine Sears 5007 bags and somewhere a few 5008 that I promised to Tyler but haven't found them yet, 5009 fit many of the 50s and early 60s Kenmores and RCA Whirlpools, the Horizon, Vanguard, Aurora and the 58-60 Lady Kenmore on the cart
