    I'm in love with this Vacuum

    About twelve years ago, when I first went out on my own I bought an upright Bissell bagless and loved it. In fact, it is still going strong today. But I just moved across the country and took only what I could fit in my car--the vacuum didn't make it, so I passed that along to my friend who also loves it. I needed another vacuum and decided that I wouldn't just jump right back to a Bissell. It had been 12 years since my last one and while I loved it, I wanted to make sure there wasn't something better out there, especially within a reasonable price. I looked at every vacuum available in my area and checked reviews on all of them. I wasn't satisfied with the other product reviews so decided to stick with what I knew. So I got a BISSELL Cleanview Helix Upright Vacuum Cleaner, Bagless and am in love. The suction is fantastic and even better than my last Bissell. And the little turbo head is great for my couch and picking up all the cat hair. Another great job, Bissell. I won't hesitate again.

    I bought this vacuum because my really expensive one was giving me problems and I knew repairing it would cost more than getting a new one (last service was $300!). Anyway, I did a test area with my old vacuum first. It runs but has a short and constantly shuts off. Then I used my new Bissell. OMG! I can't believe how much dog hair and dirt it picked up! Emptying the canister is so simple. Really like being able to clean filter... That's easy too. A couple things I don't like are that the hose attachment doesn't expand much without making the whole unit fall over and the handle doesn't go down enough to get under short tables easily. I can work around both of these issues though. So, overall, this unit is great for a very reasonable price.

    I replaced an old Hoover with this vacuum and was amazed at how much the Bissell picked up that the Hoover didn't. This vacuum seems to have good suction and picks up a lot of dirt. However, I HATE HATE HATE the filter. The foam filter that fits around the circular pleated filter is completely caked with dirt and dust after every single vacuum. The vacuum won't suck unless that foam filter is very clean, which means I have to clean the filter after every single time I vacuum. Really?? People do this?? I would never have bought this vacuum had I known this. You can't just easily rinse this filter, either. It is so caked with dirt that you have to scrape all the dirt off first, and then rinse/wash it. Emptying the canister is also dirty job. No matter how careful you are a bunch of dirt always seems to drop out all over the bottom of the vacuum and the floor when you remove the dirt cup. Overall I am definitely not happy with this vacuum. I'm researching now for a replacement.

    Comment from Lisa - 11/30/2012

    Thanks for your review. The filters are needed to protect the motor. It may be easier for you to order another set of filters. This way while the first set is drying, you can use your machine. Please click at this link if you would like to place an order You may want to check out this link to make sure you have good airflow with your machine Hopefully this will help you!

    Great vacuum for the price!

    I've waited a couple of weeks since receiving this to post a review...and I sweep at least every other day, so have used it enough now. We have two cats and I probably should get an actual "pet vacuum" but this one was so much cheaper. Plus I researched online and compared this one to the last two vacuums I've had - which were Bissell CleanView II Plus. I loved them, and they both still run and pick up, but just wanted a new one. This Helix was the closest I could find - wide path, headlight, dual edge cleaning, on-board tools, same type of hose and length of cord, etc. And I love this Helix as much as I did the two CleanViews (which are like 7 and 9 years old, I believe). It picks up great, and I'm already used to the size of it and how it maneuvers. The only thing I miss is that this one doesn't have the stair-handle on the front, but I'm getting used to using the actual carry-handle on the back. My favorite part is the Turbo brush! Thank you, Bissell, for making such great vacuums at affordable prices!!

    My family loves how smooth it glides across the carpet. It really picks up the dog hair and dirt. Very happy with our selection.

    I actually bought this vaccum after reading so many raving reviews. The vaccum is not bad at all, the only issue that I have but it is a very big deal for me is the filtering and cleaning. There like 3 or 4 components where dust sticks to it and it causes the suction to deteriorate. The top has this cylinder like things with slits but dust and dirt attaches itself easily and when it gets to stuffed up the suction becomes weak, then the filters have the same problem on the bottom. Overall it becomes very messy to clean when you take it apart so all the HEPA filtration negates when you try and empty the canister and most likely you will have to clean the filters because after a good cleaning all of them pretty much get suffocated. I gave it a 3 star because it vaccums well when you have it clean but after a few vaccums you have to do a thorough cleansing of the filter components and this is where it becomes very messy.

    Comment from Joe - 6/11/2012

    Thanks for the review Danny27. It can be a bit messy to deal with cleaning the Inner/Outer filters and the HEPA Media filter, but the upside is not having to replace bags. If you are interested in using a bagged unit we offer one. We also have a few models with HEPA filtration and easy empty dirt containers. They are the Healthy Home and PowerClean vacuums and you can view them at this link,9242&icid=ccrr

    Features of this Vac

    Customer review by Sham

    Bought this vac 2 weeks ago. Works great as a vacuum but the filters need cleaning constantly. Suppose that's a good thing since they are really doing their job. Performs well on all my carpets and throw rugs. The tools are a nightmare. First no standard vacuum tools will fit this unit. So if you have specialty tools you're out of luck. Not a standard size 1.25 diameter. The double tool is useless since it always turns when you are using it and prevents the suction from the side you want and you can't replace it with any other tool that is better because of the size issue. As you try to use the tools, the hose does not stretch well and the vacuum continually falls over so you are never far from you vac. The connection from the hose to the bottom unit is weak and continually pulls out the socket. Dissappointed in a lot of the features except the floor vac part. Probably would not purchase again.

    Comment from Joe - 4/2/2012

    Thanks for the review. The reversible tool should not easily slide out of place. Please contact our Customer Care by phone or email at: as the tool may be broken. Additionally, you may be stretching the hose too far so you may want to move the vacuum closer to the areas you plan on cleaning with the upholstery hose. I hope this helps.

    CleanView Helix is a sure bet when it comes to cleaning and affordablity.

    I love my CleanView Helix Vacuum. It is so easy to use and cleaning out the cup is a snap. I couldn't believe it when I first started using it. I didn't expect it to pick up the amount of dirt and dust from my house. I have had a Kirby for many years, but has gotten too cumbersome to haul around the house. I thought that I would try an inexpensive vacuum to help me clean inbetween the times that I didn't want to deal with the "Goliath " in the closet. I chose Bissel® because of the well known brand name. In fact I have a Bissel® Universal carpet sweeper from the turn of the century that still is in working condition. I figured that if a company has been focusing on improving their products and in business for so many years they must be doing something right. Bissel® is a sure bet when it comes to keeping my house clean! I definitely am very happy! Thank you Bissel® for making it affordable.

    This is an adequate vacuum but I do not recommend it.

    The electric cord and the hose are too short. Due to their length I have to take the vacuum onto the stairs with me to vacuum my entire staircase. The attachment to clean stairs is not terribly effective. The overall performance on floors and carpets is adequate but other reviews I read about this product raved about its performance. I do not share those views. It is very light but frequently falls over if it does not have support from the user when vacuuming with the hose. It can be awkward to clean out the collection container as hair gets caught in the uppermost portion on the filter. The price was excellent. This is my first Bissell product and I am disappointed I am not able to share the great reviews that convinced me to purchase this product. I do not believe I will purchase another Bissell vacuum.

    I bought this vacuum to replace my older Bissell model and to move up a level although I was very happy with the previous model as well as the 2nd Bissell steam cleaner I own and have purchased for a daughter. I have a few complaints about this model. 1) It gives off quite a bit of heat, 2) the placement of the power cord makes it seem more for a left-handed person, 3) the hose and single wand are too short compared to my older version (I will probably use a wand from the old one to extend the new), 4) the dirt holder seems loose-fitting, and 5) if the TurboBrush gets pushed in too far it is very hard to get out without a tool to pop it forward. Despite my criticisms I am happy with this model and especially like the powerful suction, the area of suction and the Turbo Brush.
