And today, I’m going to impart my wisdom so you don’t have to slam your mop on the floor each time you have Bissell SpinWave problems. So, let’s get on with it then, shall we?
Bissell Spinwave Troubleshooting: How to Fix Them Yourself
If you have a Bissell SpinWave not working, the answer can lie in the components of your electric mop. Identifying the problem is the first step to correcting the issue. This will help you find out what is causing a specific problem and how you can fix it.
SpinWave Isn’t Charging:
If you have a Bissell SpinWave not charging, make sure the outlet you are using is fully functional and there are no power outages. You can do this by plugging it into another socket and seeing if this corrects the issue.
You also need to make sure that the charger plug is properly plugged into the outlet and the other end is completely inserted into the charging port on the mop. You should only use the charger that comes with your SpinWave Cordless as well.
Bissell SpinWave Won’t Turn On:
If you’ve got a ‘Bissell SpinWave not turning on’ problem, the most obvious cause is a mop with no charge. Make sure you’ve charged your SpinWave completely before using it. This can also happen because the mop handle is not in place.
This can be identified by a Bissell SpinWave handle not clicking. To fix this issue, remove the handle first. First, secure the base of the mop with your foot, and insert a screwdriver into the slot under the cord wrap to unlock the handle tab from the body. Then, use your other hand to hold the metal pole and pull upward to disengage the handle.
Lastly, reinsert the handle back into the body of the mop until you hear a click. If these two fixes do not work, Bissell SpinWave no power troubleshooting will need professional help.
Bissell SpinWave Not Spraying:
If your SpinWave mop isn’t picking up or spraying water, there can be a few possible causes. For starters, your clean water tank may be empty or almost empty. Check the reservoir, and fill it up if necessary.
In other cases, your water tank may be seated in the mop the wrong way. To correct this, turn off your SpinWave Cordless, remove the tank and reseat it into the machine correctly.
For a Bissell SpinWave not picking up water, or a mop that won’t spray water, the system isn’t properly primed. Hold the trigger for 10-15 seconds to ensure that the solution has flowed into the spray tip. You can also clean the spray tip with a pin in case they are clogged.
Wi-Fi Connectivity Issues:
If you own a Bissell SpinWave that is not connecting to WiFi, this is most probably due to a pairing error. Here is how you can connect your unit to your smartphone:
- Open the BISSELL Connect App.
- You should make sure you’re on the up-to-date version of the app.
- Click on the hamburger menu and select the ‘Go to Account’ option.
- Make sure the App Version is updated to the most recent version.
- If not, go to the App Store or Play Store and update your BISSELL Connect App. Then try pairing it with the phone again and see if it connects to the internet.
You can also try uninstalling and reinstalling the app and try connecting it again. In most cases, this is sufficient for Bissell SpinWave Robot troubleshooting.
Bissell SpinWave Suction Problems:
Before we start, it is important to know that this unit only works on low and medium-pile carpets, so there will be no suction on high-pile carpets. However, if your mop has no suction on low-pile carpets, try the following:
- Turn off your SpinWave and then empty the dirt bin. Press the button over the dirt bin and pull gently to remove.
- Open the filter door by pulling the two sides apart, and empty debris out of the dirt pan.
- Take out the filter cover, the foam, and pleated filters.
- Use a cleaning tool to brush dirt away from the filters and filter cover. Remember, the filters are not washable, so don’t try rinsing them out.
- However, the dirt bin can be washed and rinsed. Then, allow them to air dry for a day or two until they are completely dry.
- Reinstall the filters and filter cover, and push them back into the machine. If you need new filters, look for replacements. Otherwise, reassemble the SpinWave and put it back upright.
- Charge your mop and turn it on again to check for suction.
SpinWave is Leaking:
If your mop is leaking water even when it isn’t in use, it can make quite a mess on your floor or cleaning closet. This happens because the cap of the clean water tank isn’t closed properly. To correct this, remove the clean water tank and then re-apply the cap, sealing it securely.
Mop Spin Plates aren’t Rotating:
This happens when the mop pads aren’t correctly installed. To remedy this, turn off your SpinWave, unplug the machine and remove the mop pads. Then reinstall them correctly, making sure that they are aligned with the foot of the mop.
Sometimes an upright Spinwave can also cause this issue. In that case, recline the machine to get the spin plates turning again.
Other SpinWave Issues:
If there is some error in the way your mop functions but you aren’t sure what to do with it, resetting your SpinWave is a good option. However, as there isn’t a Bissell SpinWave reset button, you will need to turn off your unit, let it rest for a couple of minutes, and then restart it for the best results.
Bissell SpinWave Maintenance Tips
Caring for your Spinwave unit is the best way to ensure that there are fewer instances that require troubleshooting. Here’s what you need to do:
- Store it correctly. First, make sure your SpinWave mop is switched off and unplugged.
Then, wrap the cord around the quick release cord wrap and the lower cord wrap. Store your SpinWave upright in a dry and safe place until next use.
- Make sure you don’t store your SpinWave where there is a danger of freezing. This may damage the inner components and void the warranty of your unit.
- To take out your SpinWave’s mop pads for cleaning, simply pull them off the bottom of the unit. The mop pads can be machine washed in warm water using liquid detergent, and tumble dried. It is best to store the mop pads separately from the mop.
- After each use, discard the dirty water tank, instead of letting it fester. You should also empty any water remaining in the clean water tank if that is the case.
