The Bissell 9595A CleanView Bagless Vacuum with OnePass technology has been one of the most budget-friendly vacuums in the upright category for almost a year now. Despite being the lowest priced model, its cyclonic suction power can be likened to a tornado, getting the job done in less time without hitches or hassles. This upright vacuum is all about saving time and making the most of your busy schedule – all thanks to Bissell’s exclusive OnePass technology comprising a deep-cleaning brush roll and a wide cleaning path.
This cleaning beast has what it takes to vacuum up stubborn stains and dirt from a variety of surfaces without too much fuss. What makes it stand out from the crowd is the feature-quality vs. price tag ratio. The vacuum is loaded with terrific features that can only be matched by other models costing 2-4 times more. To make a well-informed purchase decision, we’ve prepared this Bissell 9595A Vacuum with OnePass review for you.
Looking for a low-cost and all-around full sized upright vacuum cleaner whose premium attachments allow for cleaning all types of floors, stairs, carpets and pet hair? If yes, then the Bissell 9595A might just be the right equipment for all your vacuuming requirements. Equipped with the highest maximum air power of any model in the same category, this top budget pick removes embedded dirt, and the suction control function gives it the much-needed versatility to transit from dense carpets to area rugs and bare floors.
Bissell’s exclusive OnePass Technology guarantees the least time expenditure, because the wide cleaning head means you’ll only go over carpeting or flooring once – not twice or more. This time-saving machine also features 5 bristle-height options for customizing the cleaning on varied surfaces. And with a premium hose attachment, cleaning stairs and pet hair becomes truly convenient and cozy.
In terms of shortcomings, this upright vacuum cleaner is a little bulky and tricky to maneuver around tight spaces and corners. Also, it isn’t as slim as some cordless stick vacuums, and won’t fit under furniture without hitting the furniture with the canister. Sure, it might get under elevated fixtures, but not as far as stick vacs do. All in all, this upright unit is great for households with pets, carpets and different types of floorings – but it still has a few weaknesses.
Bissell CleanView 9595A Review – Notable Features & Specifications
Our Bissell 9595A review starts with the design. This upright bagless vacuum resembles other vacuums from Bissell’s upright lineup, but it’s slightly heavier than most similar models at around 15 pounds. Be that as it may, Bissell engineers have designed this unit with convenience in mind. Even though it’s somewhat hefty, the Bissell 9595A features an ergonomic handle situated right beside the dirt tank.
The handle is looped to provide a secure and comfortable grip during use, and its depression angle allows it to lean back almost down to the floor to reach under furniture. Also, there are smooth non-marring wheels that glide effortlessly over surfaces without marking delicate floors, plus a bumper that protects furniture from damage. The CleanView is also designed with a wide cleaning path to be able to cover larger areas in the shortest time possible.
Size & Dimensions
As far as dimensions go, the Bissell CleanView 9595A vacuum measures 12.5 inches long, 13.5 inches wide and 44 inches high. With these dimensions in mind, we find that this bagless vacuum is enormous and might be problematic to store away depending on the available storage space.
Fortunately, it flaunts an upright design and is able to stand alone unaided. To some extent, this design makes it at least easier to store without taking up too much space, and without being concerned about balancing the unit one way or another.
Innovative OnePass Technology
For lightning fast cleaning, Bissell engineers opted to combine a uniquely designed rotary floor nozzle with a 12-amp powerful motor, allowing the CleanView to vacuum up dirt and debris on the initial pass. The 12-amp motor generates enough torque to create tremendous suction force for picking up dust and debris in one pass. Equally, the multi-cyclonic action and the floor nozzle combo – also part of the OnePass Technology – makes it possible to clean up every type of dirt, debris and hair from carpets and hard floors.
The rotary floor nozzle comprises double rows of long bristles whose height can be adjusted in 5 levels for efficient pick up of the finest pet hair and crumbs from both low and high-pile carpets. Raising the bristles facilitates graceful dusting and vacuuming of floors and tiles in one pass, sweeping off all debris you didn’t even know existed.
Disclaimer: Sometimes huge amounts of stubborn stains and dirt might not be removed in the first attempt. So even though the OnePass Technology works (not just a fancy marketing lingo), some circumstances may require moving the vacuum multiple times to clean up the junk.
Comprehensive Multi-Cyclonic System
The CleanView uses the Multi-Cyclonic System to separate the dirt and debris and to prevent these clog-causing particles from reaching the floor nozzle. With the power of the cyclonic system, the vacuum is able to maintain powerful and long lasting suction from the moment you start your cleaning session all through to the end. This Multi-Cyclonic System is intended to protect the filters from clogging up.
Since the motor churns out enough multiple cyclones to separate larger debris from finer allergens, the vacuum’s filters will stay cleaner and last longer. Dirt particles reaching the pre-motor foam filter are redirected straight into the dirt tank. For extra measure, the CleanView is equipped with the post-motor filter as well.
Inventive Brush Design
As a matter of fact, cleaning households and offices containing delicate floors and carpets can be a nightmare. These fragile surfaces need to be cleaned with a lot of caution. The Bissell 9595A CleanView comes furnished with an innovative brush design, which spins down into the carpeting for better cleaning on the initial pass.
Also available with the CleanView is a powerful handheld motorized Turbo Brush Tool for cleaning delicate surfaces like stairs, upholstery, auto interiors and furniture without incurring any damages. This inbuilt tool doesn’t work aggressively on these surfaces, yet can clean them without flaws. It’s also engineered to lessen your work of removing long and short pet hair littering your floors.
A Practical Floor Nozzle
Right from the brush roll through to the floor plate, the CleanView’s 13.5-inch no-nonsense floor nozzle is designed to make the debris vanish never to be seen again. The brush roll highlights two rows of elongated bristles that can lift the dirt from far below the surface of your carpeting. These extended bristles can reach into far places and blast away the dirt you don’t even see.
On the nozzle is a window that lets you watch out for tangles in the rolling brush. A turn dial resting on top of the nozzle’s head helps move the floor plate up and down, making it suitable for the surface being vacuumed. You can adjust the plate to five levels ranging from bare flooring to plush carpeting. As if not enough, the CleanView has a soft bumper that prevents dents and dings.
Giant Bagless Dirt Tank
Like it has been mentioned several times in most Bissell 9595A CleanView Bagless Vacuum with OnePass reviews, the CleanView features a 2-liter dirt bin. This giant dirt holder can store huge amounts of crumbs, dirt and kitty litter without filling up too quickly or having to make multiple trips to the trash can. The tank’s body is translucent, and so you’ll be able to monitor its contents and know exactly when it’s time to empty. We think that a 2-liter tank is more than enough to clean a big dirty house before the dust cup is fully loaded.
Additionally, you don’t need any professional skills to empty the CleanView’s tank. It has a bottom opening mechanism, whereby you simply press a button on the tank to swing the bottom door open and release the tank from the vacuum’s body. Once the tank has been released, hold it over the trash can and empty its contents easily without getting your hands dirty. What’s good about this easy-empty bin is that it’s neither prone to leaking nor spilling the dirt around as you clean the floor. However, a large dirt tank makes the unit bulkier and more difficult to fit under little chairs or desks.
Advanced HEPA Filtration System
As we mentioned earlier in this Bissell CleanView 9595A review, this upright vacuum is an excellent choice for households with pets or allergy-prone people. It features a standard HEPA filter topped with two washable and reusable filters: a foam filter and a pre-motor filter. As an anti-allergen model, it cleans your floor while making your surroundings healthy and allergen-free.
The rotary brush picks up dust particles and pet hair effectively, which then goes through the multi-level filtration system and into the bin, preventing allergens from re-circulating back into your indoor air. The foam filter and pre-motor filter can be washed and reused, and replacements are also available at a normal cost. The CleanView bagless vacuum is much more eco-friendly compared to other vacuums that use disposable filtration.
The Bissell 9595A CleanView comes as standard with a tool named extension wand, which proves useful when it comes to cleaning above-floor surfaces. It’s ideal for collecting dirt and debris on such places as ceilings, baseboards, and ceiling fans – without straining.
You can use this tool on its own or with other attached tools like the Turbo Brush, Dusting Brush, or Crevice Tool. The extension wand is especially an essential tool for persons suffering from back pains.
25-Foot Power Cable
The Bissell 9595A CleanView is a corded upright vacuum sporting a standard 25-foot power cord. Although it’s not the longest power cable out there, it’s still enough to offer extended cleaning reach in an average home. A flexible 6-foot hose is also available for cleaning in awkward spots.
If you’re going to use it to clean a large house, you might have to undergo 1 or 2 socket changes before your cleaning session ends. Bissell didn’t include an automatic cord rewind feature for this vacuum, but there’s a storage area where you can fold the cord after use.
Tools in Abundance
For whole-house precision vacuuming, the 9595A CleanView offers up to four onboard accessories which can be attached to the back of the hose. These include a Turbo Brush Tool, Crevice Tool, Dusting Brush and Extension Wand. The Turbo Brush consists of a motorized brush roll for pulling dust, spilled crumbs and soft hair from upholstery, staircases and area rugs. The Crevice Tool proves handy in removing stubborn dirt particles and allergens from high-pile carpets, in between the car seats, behind the trash can, furniture, et cetera.
Bissell’s Dusting Brush is ideal for getting rid of dust bunnies from tiny corners, blinds, lampshades, upholstery and furniture. You can attach the Extension Wand to the hose for cleaning up tricky spots like under furniture, as well as above-the-head areas like ceilings. On the downside, the hose attachment isn’t adequate for reaching almost every nook and cranny, neither is it able to get far under your coffee table or couch. Still, it offers decent overall cleaning.
We can’t really claim that the 9595A CleanView provides whisper-quiet operation. It generates quite a standard level of noise, and is even quieter than many of its higher-priced counterparts.
In general, it’s neither too quiet and unnoticeable nor too noisy and bothersome. It’s as noisy as any other average vacuum, and certainly won’t disturb your family and neighbors with excessive noise while it’s running.
Bissell offers a 2-year limited warranty on its 9595A CleanView model. This warranty covers malfunctioning and defective parts. As usual, the deal doesn’t cover brushes, belts, and filters. Other issues that aren’t covered include damage caused by misuse, normal wear and tear, and unauthorized repair.

As we’ve already stressed a few times in our Bissell 9595A review, the CleanView is pure gold for homeowners who are searching for a top value upright model. It comes loaded with several innovative features commonly found in the more expensive upright vacuum models. Yet, it costs 2-3 times less than other uprights in the market.
