How to Use Bissell Attachments

Powerful and durable, Bissell vacuums and cleaning machines can use an array of attachments for cleaning carpets, stairs and upholstery. The attachments included with the vacuum or cleaning machine make cleaning tight areas and spots easier. The attachments are not hard to use. And once your cleaning task is complete, you can easily store the attachments in the "Tool Caddy" on your Bissell vacuum or cleaning machine.

It's easy to use your Bissell vacuum attachments

Step 1

Turn off your Bissell vacuum or cleaning machine. Unwind the flex hose from the upper and lower hose rack on the back of your Bissell vacuum or cleaning machine.

Step 2

Remove the attachment you want to use from the Bissell Tool Caddy on the back of the Bissell vacuum or cleaning machine.

Step 3

Push the attachment into the end of the flex hose.

Step 4

Place the "Ready Tools Dial" on the front of your Bissell unit to the "Hose Attachments" setting. This setting allows spray and suction from the flex hose.

Place the "Custom Clean Dial" to "Heavy Traffic," "Normal Clean" or "Light Clean." If you're using an attachment and rinsing clean carpet or upholstery, set the "Custom Clean Dial" to "Rinse."

Step 6

Turn on your Bissell vacuum or cleaning machine.

Step 7

Guide the attachment along the carpet or upholstery to complete your cleaning task using the attachment.
