Rated 1 out of 5 by ttom Started leaking within 3 months
Bought this carpet cleaner from Target and at first it worked fine. But within about 3 months, I noticed it leaking from somewhere between the solution tank and the rest of the machine. Nothing obvious (cracked line, loose joint, etc) but I can fill up the solution tank and let it sit, not running, and watch the water level drop to zero in about 1 minute.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Farm girl It's as good as any, but...
The machine works fine, but the overall design is difficult to clean. That seems to be the case for all carpet cleaning machines. But the Bissell is really difficult to clean the dirt & grit out of the holding tank when I'm through.
Also, I don't see why all machines push their brand of chemical. I don't use chemicals because of allergic reactions. Certainly NOT Febreeze! Why do instructions always say to use ONLY these products!?

We don't have much carpet in our house except for two rooms and an area rug on our laminate in the living room. I needed something small yet would do the job. The Ready clean power brush was it. Great price and easy to maneuver. It has helped tremendously with the one room we actually bought it for. It is where we keep our dog kennels(2) and where one dog tends to use it as grass for relieving herself. It cleans well and keeps the dog from leaving us presents on it. We have a lot of old stains that won't come out, but I didn't expect them to. I know I have clean carpet . That is what matters. And it smells great. It does dry fast.

This is my second post although if you want to save some money on cleaning solution.. Gain laundry detergent works awesome about a table spoon added to the water works great. my carpets look brand new. clean with that and the next day do a cold water rinse that way you wont over wet the carpet.. you will not be disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PSULioness I was so excited, now just disappointed.
This carpet cleaner was working so well. I had only used it 3 times and cleaned per the instructions. I'm expecting company tomorrow so I wanted to use it to make a good impression. I did everything as before and the water/solution leaked everywhere! What gives!?! Now I have a puddle in my living room and wasted expensive solution.

Bought this machine and loved it! I've had it for almost 4 months now and it broke. I cannot keep water/cleaner in the darn thing! Just leaks out before I plug it in and left a giant stain on my carpet ironically.

Rated 5 out of 5 by satisfied customer I'm So Happy I Got This Machine!
I asked specifically for a Bissell floor cleaner. It had to be a carpet cleaner/floor cleaner in one.
I thought my floors were clean from scrubbing by hand (on my hands and knees, too old for that now!) After using this, I find the floors were not clean at all. It doens't clean white grout, so if you are looking for it to do that, it won't. However, everytbhing else I cleaned are so bright and shiny! It saves time, energy and doesn't leave me exhausted.
Yes, I would recommend this and their vacuum cleaners also. I now have two machines that do it all!!
