Rated 4 out of 5 by Jontra This product is the BEST!!
Since purchasing the CleanView Helix running the sweeper hasn't been the same. We have a pet in the house and our other sweeper just wasn't getting the job done, but since purchasing the Cleanview Helix I can actually see the results. My husband tries to beat me running the sweeper! He loves it too! It is light weight too, not too bulky and heavy like some models. I am really pleased with the CleanView Helix and it makes my job of cleaning house a whole lot easier!

Rated 3 out of 5 by CleanZone Dusty filters respond poorly to cleaning
Bissell claims that both the inner and outer filter in the machine can be rinsed. This is not the case. Instead, they must be replaced, so don't be misled. Even though the owner's manual asserts that one can rinse the filters using a mild detergent, I have found this to not be the case after experimenting twice with new filters. Instead, no matter how long they air dry ( hours, days), they will emit a moldy smell throughout the house and vacuum after regular maintenance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by joannsVanilla It works for me
This is my 2nd vacuum since I've been on my own, (i'm over 50), I have to say i like the way it cleans. My only complaint is, when I use the 'turbo brush' all this dust comes out of the back and gets all over the vacuum! not sure what that's about! but other than that It cleans very well and I love the fact it really does go from carpet to bare floor with same cleaning results.

Overall I was pretty satisfied with this cleaner. It was a good value, but not a great product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Steph H Loved it@ first...now experiencing problems
I bought my Bissell last year and absolutely loved it. I was amazed by the amount of pet dander and grime that was packed into my 'clean' carpet. The vacuum has stopped picking up and is instead putting the filter contents back onto the carpet. I've cleaned the filter and I've had no luck. I'd appreciate a reply from Bissell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VJ First time to purchase a Bissell
My vaccum that was over 20 years old finally gave out and I need a new one. I had just started back to work so I could not afford a really expenisve vaccum. My cat is one of these cat that likes to play in her litter box. I have just as much litter on the outside of the box as in tbe inside this vaccum picked up all the litter and the rug looks great. This is great vaccum for the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MessyHands Give me back my bag....
Very disappointed with this vacuum...I thought that going bagless would be safer for my allegeries...But when this thing needs cleaned, I have to get out the Shop Vac...
There are three areas to clean everytime or it will clog...
Wish I would have used my money to buy bags for the old vacuum...

Rated 2 out of 5 by HC03 Don't expect more than 2 years of use.....
Purchased this vacuum 2 1/2 years ago. The price was right and I liked it for the first year. However now that I am on year two with this machine I'm just ready for a better vacuum. I have had to replace the 2 main filters twice now and it never really picks up like it did when it was new. No stores carry the filters and the website no longer sells them. The one local store that carries the filters is double the price. I can almost buy a new machine for the cost of replacing the filters every few months. It will still clean my rugs but any dust or fine dirt still shows and I have just resorted to buying a new vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PeteJocoby72 My first Bissell product
I have had this vacuum for about a year and have never had an issue. I clean it out after every use which is very easy to avoid any build up. It is a bag-less after all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dusty55 Great vacuum for the money
I bought this vacuum as a second one to have in the house. My other vacuum doesn't have the carpet adjustments and the other vacum is a pricey one. I find myself using the Bissell more than the other. I would tell anyone reading reviews to go out and buy this vacuum today!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rene0035 Great vacuum
I purchased this vacuum from Target about a month ago and love it. This is the second Bissell vacuum I have ever owned and this one is the best. It has powerful suction, convenient carryon tools and its not as loud as the previous vacuum. This vacuum works great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Joyce Terrible vacuum
I hate this vacuum!!! Dirt goes everywhere. It picks
up very little dirt and it is not going in the basket.
I have no idea where the dirt it picks up is going.
I NEVER use the hose at all ---- it has never
worked. Vacuum is over one year old now and
the vacuum cleaner place will charge me more
than buying a new vacuum will cost. Next time
I will not buy a BISSELL.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momof3inmi Good for the money
I bought this vacuum to replace one I previously loved and it is ok. Good value for the money paid for it. I do think that after a year, the suction has gone down a lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ray Very pleased with this vaccum
When I received the vacuum I was overall pleased by the look/style everything functions very well, the hose, brush, it vacuums very well. I did buy an extra filter for it because it does take a few days to dry the filter after you wash it. But this vacuum really does get the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mj8466 Excellent vacuum!!
This is the best vacuum I have ever purchased, especially for the price! The best advice I can give to keep it working perfectly is to clean all parts after each use, including rinsing out all the filters especially the sponge filter. Also, don't forget to occasionally replace the exit filter (spend the extra on the HEPA one). The hair remover tool works really well and practically removes your fingerprints if you get your fingers in the way!
You will not regret this purchase!

Rated 2 out of 5 by McFarnell Blowing dust
This vacume worked well for light use for about 2 years. Now, it blows dust everywhere. I get allergies when we use it. We've cleaned the filters and it doesn't seem to help.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nick Lansing Floor piece works, but hose has bad suction.
The main reason I bought this was for the mainfloor piece, which seems to work fine. I just bought this yesterday, so its brand new. The hose works a little with no attachments but the turbo brush does not work at all. The hose is not cracked and the turbo brush was never used so Im not sure why it diesnt get enough suction to spin.

Rated 2 out of 5 by spudnik It started out great
This vacuum started out great easy to put together and cleaned remarkably well. Until, 1 week later the second time I decided to use it there was no suction at all I was using the hose attachment and it could not even pick up a piece of thread. So i decided to clean out the filters and hose. the power is still half of what it originally was with no real item clogging the vacuum it just doesn't suck anymore. I would not ever buy this product,

Rated 3 out of 5 by EuroCultAV Loved the Vacuum Thus Far, However....
While preparing to move out of state we are doing an exceptional amount of work cleaning our house. Last night the vacuum began to reject dirt, after a little research I found out it was being redirected to the hose, I cleaned the dirt from the hose, and vacuumed the mess I was working on.
However, the container is no longer filling the hose is. What could be causing this?

Rated 4 out of 5 by ruth6 Great on pet hair
I love this product! I have 2 cats and it is amazing how it gets the hair up!! The only thing negative would be when emptying it, the dust goes everywhere. I do clean the filter after every use. Over all I love this vacuum especially the turbo brush and it is great on the pet hair!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jmod O Ring Needed?
This sweeper has great power for dirt removal on our older carpet, and the "easy empty dirt container" shows what our older sweeper wasn't picking up. I'm thinking this "container" could use some sort of "O ring" at it's top edge to avoid fuzzy accumulations around the whole filter holding assembly.
