Operations

warning To reduce the risk of fire, use only BISSELL cleaning formula for full-sized machines in your washer. Use of cleaning formulas that contain lemon, eucalyptus or pine oil may damage this appliance and void the guarantee. Chemical spot cleaners or solvent-based soil removers should not be used. These products may react with the plastic materials used in your washer causing cracking or pitting.

Special Features
Your BISSELL® washer is a home cleaning system that uses a combination of warm tap water, BISSELL cleaning formula, brush agitation and suction to safely clean carpets.

DirtLifter Powerbrush
The DirtLifter PowerBrush is designed to enhance cleaning performance. The bristle pattern safely lifts out dirt while gently grooming carpet fibers. The floating suspension self-adjusts to all carpet heights. When the power is ON and the machine is in the upright position, your carpet is protected because the brush is elevated above the carpet (take care if long fibre carpet or mats are in proximity).

ReadyTools Dial
The ReadyTools feature allows you to choose between FLOOR CLEANING or cleaning with TOOLS simply by turning the dial. The TOOLS setting allows for above floor cleaning of upholstery, stairs, creases along baseboards, and other hard-to-reach areas. Simply choose the tool that is appropriate for the job, attach to flex hose, and you are ready to go.

Before You Clean

  1. Move furniture to another area if cleaning an entire room. (Optional)
  2. Remove loose dirt and impediments before cleaning.
  3. Plan your cleaning route to leave an exit path. It is best to begin cleaning in the corner farthest from your exit.
  4. Pretreat stubborn stains and highly soiled carpet in hallways and other high-traffic areas (Optional). Pretreat formula not included.
    4a. Generously spray BISSELL Stain Pretreat evenly over soiled area. Caution: DO NOT OVERWET CARPET
