Written on: 02/09/2009

Often had trouble with the cleaning solution not being dispensed. Found the problem was that long lenght of plastic tube in the solution bottle. Remedy..cut the bloody thing off leaving 1/2 inch showing. Works a treat now. Eating fluid like ther's no tomorrow. Don't worry about that as the carpets are now clean… Read Full Review

“I found the Bissell Powerwash Proheat / 1698 Carpet...”

Written on: 25/08/2009

I found the Bissell Powerwash Proheat / 1698 Carpet Shampooer to be absolute rubbish - I use the machine once and have to send it in to be repaired for each second usage. Also, it is very heavy. It does clean well but this is not good enough if you have to return it for repair every other time of use. It is always the same problems as well, not sucking up water and not dispensing cleaning solution. Bissell customer care is good - beware of extended warranties from the shops as they are often… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/07/2009

I have had a Bissell Powerwash Proheat/1698 for 3 years in the first 12 month the repair firm got a replacement because they had to come out to my old one 3 times and still it would not work for more than a couple of times.The second one is just as bad it gets air locked all of the time so now I have to hire a carpet cleaner. The Bissell was not only a waste of my time but a waste of money… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/07/2009 by princes and honey (1 review written)

I purchased a Bissell Pro Heat 2X carpet cleaner and have had nothing but trouble with it. I only had carpet on my stairs and one bedroom. I didn't even finish cleaning the bedroom carpet when the water stopped coming out. I took out an extra warranty for it with Domestic & General who then got a contract company called service 2000 to repair it, they were based in Walsall West midlands. I had the cleaner back, switched it on and it would not clean. Service 2000 had to collect it for repair… Read Full Review

“THIS CLEANER WILL CLEAN YOUR CARPETS AND CLEAN THEM...”

Written on: 28/06/2009 by arcom47 (1 review written)

THIS CLEANER WILL CLEAN YOUR CARPETS AND CLEAN THEM WELL but forget about using the auto solution dispenser ans forget about "auto heat." After 4 years I've finally gotten this dog to hunt. Here's what I do: First make sure it's clean inside and out. Disassemble it per the instructions to get those nooks and crannies. If it won't spray hot water first make sure the outlet is free of debris and the filters are clean. Fill the water tank and the cleaning solution solution tanks with HOT… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/11/2008 by P B 123 (1 review written)

Had this Bissell Powerwash Proheat three years. The TURBO-Brush attachment is pathetic. The manual brushes are better with a lot of elbow grease but still not great. The upright part of the cleaner is very poor and clogs very easily. Never leave it on carpet while you refill as you will return to find a sharp dirty line where the front of the machine is supposed to to suck in dirty water. The machine is not good enough to clean away that line. Being good with technical things I have repaired… Read Full Review

I should have learned, but I bought the handheld model too. Both are TERRIBLE. Neither will extract the water out of the carpet or upholstery material. What a total waste of money… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/07/2008 by sallieanne (1 review written)

When it worked it was excellent and cleaned my carpets beautifully, but outer casing and moving parts are brittle plastic and very prone to breakage, inner soft pipework prone to twisting and blockage. Despite quoting part number and description to manufacturer I have been sent parts that did not fit the machine. (I believe they were for different models). Potentially an excellent machine but multiple repair bills make it uneconomical… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/07/2008

Had the Bissell Powerwash Proheat / 1698 Carpet Shampooer and have used a dozen times then and have always cleaned it out thoroughly. On the last attempt to use it, it isn't working, won't spray water, mix soap. My sister has had 2 of these machines and got this for me, she has had exactly the same trouble with hers. I have never used a non Bissell shampoo and have looked after it.
Would never have another of these machines, have gone for the Vax that is very similar, had for about 6… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/05/2008 by PhilC2709 (1 review written)

I have owned this machine for over a year and unlike some of the people on this site, I am very impressed. It gets used at least once a week ( I have kids and dogs) and it always does an excellent job. The only time I have been unhappy with it was when I used cheap Vax claening fluid, which was nowhere near as effective as the Bissell fluid. My neighbour has one of the latest vax machines, and his doesn't do the job half as well as mine. I always clean the machine thoroughly after use and it… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/02/2008 by joannebattams (1 review written)

We have had our Bissell for 6 years and have used it regularly all over the house, only now has it started to wear out which I think is pretty good for the amount of use it has had. Well recommended. I am now looking to buy a new carpet cleaner as ours is now showing signs of a lot of wear and tear, and I would definitely buy a Bissell again… Read Full Review
