Waste of good money
Total waste of money. I agree with other reviews. More water is left on floor rather than a good steam clean like other products I've used. Poor CS. Tried to get a single mop pad rather than the scrubby one which is of NO use on my floors only to be declined. I would have to buy the 2 pack including scrubby mop. This was after 3 calls . I would never buy Bissell again. Good money spent up in smoke or is it steam ??
Purchased in February 2021 at Harvey Norman Retail Stores for $309.00.

Purchased at Betta Home Living for $169.00.
Don't waste your hard earn money
I bought this a few months ago from Godfreys. I have passed cheap $40-50 and purchased this thinking that the paying triple the price would give me a better product. I was wrong! It left a lot of water on the floor which I always had to turn on the heater on full to dry the floor and in somedays use an old towel to wipe some areas. Funny enough the water container got stuck and had to put a lot of pressure to release it from the body but only succeeded after breaking the neck of the container. No spare parts available now due to Covid situation. So now I have a broken mop purchased on the highest bid from the market and use the mop and bucket now.
So think twice before buying this product. God bless you all!

Nearly perfect but....
I bought this steam mop a couple of years ago, having tried a number of other brands, and I'm not unhappy with it; however, I do wish that someone from the company (Bissell) had taken the time to contact me to answer my question about two aspects of the product - sadly no one did. Today, having broken yet another item on a table caused by the handle falling over, and being annoyed once again at the ridiculously short cord, I thought I would come to this site and see what people had to say. Clearly I'm not the only person happy with the mop - ...equally clearly I'm not the only person who has issues with the short cord and the fact that there is no way of holding the handle in one position when either taking off the mop head or leaving it for a moment to answer the phone. Surely it can't take any rocket science to produce a handle able to stand upright instead of having to be placed against a wall or piece of furniture (from where it inevitably falls over) and wouldn't anyone who ever used a steam mop to clean the floor of anything larger than a telephone box think to make a longer cord so that users don't have to keep unplugging the thing and moving to another power outlet OR tripping over the extension cord which is otherwise necessary. So now I've had my little whinge I'll close by saying that I'm not unhappy with this product but I really would like to hear that a new model will become available with a longer cord and some option for holding the handle in place (note to designers, we don't have three hands) Over to you Bissell IF you read reviews. Thank you.
Purchased for $160.00.
I like it
I really like this mop, the cord is a bit short and I have to refill the tank twice to do the whole house but it gets all the stains off easily

2nd to fail the same way
This is the 2nd steam mop (exact same style) and both have failed the same way. Steam coming out the side of the machine. I do like the steam mop but I am frustrated that this has happened yet again.
So disappointed! It broke after only a few utilisations, and they don’t sell the broken parts (water tank)!Never Bissell
2 times for a 2 rooms appartement
It was almost dry, pretty powerful
2 times/cleaning. It broke really fast, didn’t get the chance to buy second pads
Yes, the cord is long enough
Purchased in March 2018 for $250.00.
Product Quality in recent production
Three in a ROW have failed the same way, steam out of the side and just a small amount out through the base where it should be coming out. Distilled water only. We have used this product successfully in two Motels for years and now there seems to be a quality issue with this model.
Purchased in January 2019 for $120.00.
Terrible to use
Find it hard to push on floor, the floor is not left dry after use I have to use a cloth to dry floor. Cord is not nearly long enough and it is noisy I wish I had bought a VAX.... And should have read these reviews before I purchased one.

Crap product, don’t waste your money!
After having my Bissell Steam Mop replaced under warranty in October 2017 as it shorted out whilst mopping my floors, exactly the same thing had happened 12 months on. Would not recommend buying a Bissell product as they only provide a 12 month warranty on the original purchase. Do not waste your money.
It worked great up until...
I bought this mop less than a year ago. It works really well if you have hard to remove marks or anything on the floor. That said, I learned that you don't kneed the steam pads that come with it. Buy an 18 pack of washcloths and put one on it. Use your own cleaner on the floor and just steam over it with the washcloth. Who wants to spend $10+ dollars on cleaning pads when you can do that. Also, up until last week, it worked fine. Now the trigger mechanism that controls the steam is broken and doesn't work. I have read this is very common wi...th this mop so buyer beware. Now it's useless unless you don't want steam and want to use it as a regular wet mop. Also, if you use steam on wood floors like I did, it leaves white residue on it which you can remove with vinegar. Other than those couple of things, it was ok.
- Steam Mop Select 23V8F
Bissell 23V8F Steam Mop Select has excellent cleaning power. It was light and easy to maneuver. I haven't change the pads yet so I can't make a comment on that one. The annoying thing is you have to press button all the time if you want steam. I find the power cord too short as well.
Easy to use, fast heat up. Cleans tiles and wood floors beautifully. Love that you dont need chemicals to get floors so clean. Price is excellent. Comes with scrubbing pad and normal both machine washable. Decent size cord and triangular shaped head allows to get in corners and hard to reach places. Fairly light making it easy to maneuver.
Does a Great Job
We've had other Steam Mops and found this Bissell Steam Mop Select more convenient to use. We use it on Tile and Hard Wood floors and happy with the cleaning power. The steam dries quickly without leaving pools of water.
Our home is a small 3 bedroom and can clean all the floors with ONE tank of water. The Pads wash easily.
Rubbish - after using the steam mop on my tile floor it is so badly watermarked VERY disappointed this product, after mop the floor look more dirty then before mop what can i do I replace pads twice during cleaning, but this makes no difference at all. Get down on my hands and knees and polish floor with dry towel after steaming to try to make the floor look good. Cost the money for nothing.
Questions & Answers
Can anyone PLEASE tell me the size of the mop pads? A few other brands I've looked at lately have got bigger which I don't want. Thanks
I have a bissell steam mop select, plugged it in the blue light is coming on, but no water is coming out via the bottom(the area to steam or mop) can you tell me what's the problem?
The steam is activated upon pressing the trigger in the handle. If it's the first use of the mop, ensure you have primed the machine by holding the trigger down for one minute consecutively until the steam starts being generated at the floorhead of the unit. From then on with future uses the steam will immediately start once unit is heated and ready with the trigger being pressed. If still having issues, contact Bissell customer care on 1300-247-735
It's not the first use, I accustom using, but now the water is not seem to be coming through to the mop area on the floor, and the blue light is on
Check if you can hear the pump of the machine working when pressing the trigger with the water container removed from the unit. If there is no 'knocking or clicking' sound from the pump, then it may be faulty or the handle may need to be reinserted into position. Best to contact Bissell customer care who are based in Melbourne on 1300-247-735 or emailing email@example.com
Can anyone recommend a good steam mop that is not priced out of this earth! I have a very small area to clean.
