Rated 5 out of 5 by Marsha Could not live without it!
Two dogs who have become seniors and several accidents have made me an enthusiast for this product. We would have thrown the area rugs out!
Poor reviews for leakage are truly due to not aligning the bill gasket correctly .
Portable and so easy! Love it for stairs and any spill!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Shanks Worked great at first, then....
I have had two of these and after about a year they break. First one kept leaking from the bottom second one stopped spraying solution and only would suck up spills. I'm never recommending this to one of my customer again and will never buy another bissell product. I didn't use it alot and spent a ton of money on it

Rated 1 out of 5 by MFY Durability issues
Despite only 3-4 uses, the machine stopped drawing solution from the clean tank despite all troubleshooting steps. This is surprising for a machine that is practically new. Our option given was to repair the machine. How disappointing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Photobug Disappointing!!
The SpotBot Pet Cleaner has possibilities, but falls short of my expectations. It cleans well on plush carpet, but does not do well on berber or sculpted carpet. It does not clean thoroughly in the carpet grooves and does not evacuate the water very well. The area cleaned is so wet you need to use the brush tool to suck up the excess water.
After two months, my machine started leaking. It turned out to be the cap on the fresh water tank. I replaced this. Then, after having the machine for 10 months it started leaking again and the plastic adapter hooking the hose to the machine broke apart into several pieces. I have had the machine for less than a year and it is completely unusable! I love Bissell's products, but this has been a very bad experience (and product). I would not recommend this product to any of my friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Richy Started to leak
I am on my second SpotBot. The first one leaked when I got it. Now the second one which was working great is leaking all over the floor where it sits when not in use. There is obviously a problem that Bissell cannot or will not fix. I would like Bissell to send me a replacement machine since I am disabled and it is hard for me to go out and keep going to Lowes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ChristineB Just didn't last
Got several cracks in the hose and wasn't suctioning. It was always leaking dirty water out of the bottom too. Quality just isn't the best. I have owned 4 Bissell spot cleaners over the years and they last about a year. And I clean it every time and take great care too. They just don't last for one reason or another. It's always after the warranty is expired too. Problem is they are the only spot cleaner in town so there aren't other products to choose from!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marylee1945 This product is amazing
I am so pleased with my SpotBot. I just pushed a button and went on with other chores. In a matter of minutes the spot was removed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Domestic goddess Piece of junk!
I have had two portables before this one. Had the original green machine about 10 yrs. and a maroon one for 10 to 12 yrs. these were live saving machines with small children and dogs. Three years ago, my daughters bought this model because my sprayer on the last machine stopped working. I didn't want this machine. I thought the brush was not necessary. Well, leaking started and then no suction. My daughter also has this one and hers is doing the same thing. Piece of junk! I've now bought the Spotclean Proheat for her and myself. So light weight and less complicated. A lot cheaper as well. Don't spend money on a brush machine that won't last.
