Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum

Quick Start

Snapping the handle into the pet vacuum

First, insert the handle at the top of the body of the machine until you hear a click.

Small area and large area cleaning fill levels

For small area cleaning (<350 sq ft), fill the clean water tank with warm tap water to the first water fill line. Then add formula to the first formula fill line.

For large area cleaning (up to 700 sq ft), fill the clean water tank with warm tap water to the second water fill line. Then add the formula until you get to the second formula fill line. Screw the cap back onto the clean water tank.

Adding the formula to the top of the Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum

On the back of the machine, align the clean water tank with the grooves and slide tank into place until you hear a click.

The location of the hard floor and rug buttons

Turn the machine on by selecting the type of floor you will be cleaning. For hard floors, choose the HARD FLOOR button and for area rugs push the RUG button.

Turning the machine on

Each time you use the product, hold the solution trigger for 10 seconds to prime the system with cleaning solution before you begin cleaning. When you hold the trigger, LED lights will illuminate.

When the solution is flowing, you will see bubbles forming at the edges of the brush roll window. You are ready to start cleaning with your BISSELL® CrossWave® Pet!

Choose the setting that matches the floor type you will be cleaning. Prime the system first by holding the solution spray trigger for 10 seconds. When you’re ready to clean, hold the trigger on both the forward and backward pass for great cleaning results.

Putting the cleaning solution down and then sucking it back up again


For best results, flush the unit using the Rinse Tray. Then, rinse the dirty water tank, strainer, brush roll and brush chamber. After allowing your machine and components to dry completely, reassemble everything, making sure the machine’s brush window is securely in place before using your machine next time.

How to reassemble the pet vacuum

  • On hard floors, there is no need to vacuum before using CrossWave® Pet. This machine vacuums and washes at the same time.
  • To dry floors faster, release the trigger and run the machine over the floor without dispensing the solution.
  • When cleaning area rugs, remove any excess mud from your area rug prior to using your CrossWave® Pet.
  • When cleaning excessively dirty or muddy hard floors, or if the brush roll looks dirty, use the Easy Clean Storage Tray to rinse the brush roll before cleaning your area rugs.
  • For overly challenging and stuck-on messes on hard floors, activate the RUG mode and hold your CrossWave® Pet over the mess. Using short passes while holding the trigger allows the multi-surface brush to go to work.
