Wow! I love this vacuum/mop. I have tiles with lots of area rugs, so great you can vacuum and wash the floors and rugs at the same time. Battery lasts a very long time, really impressive. It is a bit heavy, but so is carting buckets of water around. It cleans itself, although you do need five minutes to rinse out the filters afterwards, but no big deal at all. It even copes with a fair amount of dog hair without getting clogged, cleaned dog sick of the rug with no mark left. I have bought and been through at least 6 other cordless vacs including a very expensive dyson (which gave us electric shocks amongst other issues) so I was sceptical about this one, but it turned out to be a winner.

Does what is says on the box
Does an amazing job of cleaning the floors
The difference between using this vacuum is like wiping a surface with dry cloth vs wiping it with a damp cloth. The damp cloth picks up much more dirt and that is what happens when you use this vacuum.
Note: the floors remain wet afterwards - without accurate measurement estimate 75% of the water remains on the floor which is a little disappointing
Some review complain about the cost of the cleaning solution - This is a little harsh since a bottle lasts a long time and leaves the floors much shi...nier than some cheaper cleaners I have tried Battery life only adequate to clean about 5 rooms. Once flat it has to be plugged into the charging stand for at least 30 minutes before you can clean the unit because the charger can not run the motor Note it is also quite heavy compared to a standard vacuum cleaner/mop

Great floor cleaner, easy to use. Now stopped working after 6 weeks and Bissell replaced quickly
I am very impressed with this machine. It was easy to unbox and assemble (only the delivery and receiving tanks need to be attached which even a child could do).
Setting up the cleaning solution couldn't be easier with marks on the delivery tank where to fill to with water and then where to top up to with the cleaning solution. I was a little concerned that the cleaning solution could work out expensive but I would guess only about 150-200ml of the cleaning solution would be needed to do a very large area. The 'sample' bottle supplied (236ml) a...
The easiest way to clean
The Bissell Crosswave Cordless is extremely easy to use and has been a lifesaver. We have two dogs and three parrots the combination together means mess. I don't use the Bissell formula it's way overpriced and you need so much. I buy the bosistos floor cleaner from Woolworths you only need a tiny bit about half a little finger nail from top of formula fill line. The bosistos bottle will last for ages and cleans so much better. The Bissell Crosswave Cordless is quiet and the battery run time is 30 minutes. I don't mind the five minutes it takes to clean the machine just buy extra filters and brush rolls to rotate.
Questions & Answers
Hi the first time i use the bissell crosswave pet it vacuumed and washed the floors very well was very happy. 3rd time i have used it, the last 2 times actually, its not vacuuming the excess water leaves my floors wet so when it drys leaves the floors streaky. this makes the vacuum cleaner slip all over the floor. The first time i used it, it vacuumed the excess water with no problem the container that collects the dust had the dirty water in it now i have vacuumed 5 bedrooms all of up stairs actually and no water in the dust container just wet floors. I'm starting to not like this machine any more. if i go from hard to rug all the wet dust and debris goes on to the mat. yes it vacuums up but doesnt leave the mats clean at all. is it the machine or am i doing something wrong?
Make sure your brush roll window is secured to the machine properly (just detach and reattach again to be sure) and also make sure the dirt tank is also secured into the machine with the filter pushed down firmly into the correct position. It would be worth checking the metallic mesh part of the filter (on the bottom side) for any debris on it as well. The other thing would be to check the rubber sleeve that sits under the tank, making sure it's secure and also free of debris - as well as the air intake port behind the brush roll. Using the self-cleaning system with the cleaning tray supplied after every use should dislodge anything that might disrupt airflow. As always for best results on all floor types (in particular on rugs) move the machine slower that you normally would with a traditional vacuum cleaner. The machine comes with a 2 year warranty at least, so if any issues definitely call Bissell (customer care centre is in Melbourne) on 1300-247-735 or email their customer care team.
Thank you, I do wash all the pieces you are supposed to wash after every use but I will check out the places u told me in case there is something there. Cheers
I’m having trouble with is leaving wheel marks on the floor. The two small wheel on the side leave track marks after the floor has dried. Any solutions?
My machine also leaves marks on our vinyl tiles floor but they seem to disappear as the floor dries.
Maybe run the machine over the area without applying cleaning solution to suck up as much moisture as possible.
