Buying a Replacement Hose

The Bissell Little Green Machine is a trustworthy carpet cleaner that consumers have loved since it was first released.

It’s lightweight, portable, a breeze to use, and always delivers great results.

Most people that own this machine have had it for a long time, and finding a new carpet cleaner that gives the same cleaning power is difficult to do, not to mention expensive.

Rather than buying a new carpet cleaner, wouldn’t it make more sense to simply fix the one you already own?

There is a catch…

We’re sorry to report that Bissell does not actually offer a replacement hose.

We do have a simple solution, though!

We were able to track down an easily obtainable replacement hose for purchase on Amazon, for a much lower price than if you were to replace your entire machine.

Now that you know where to get a new hose for your Bissell Little Green, it’s time to look at our simple step by step replacement process.

What Tools Do I Need?

Removing the hose from your Bissell Little Green is a piece of cake.

You’ll be able to do this quickly and easily with just a couple of tools you probably already have laying around your house.

Tools Needed:

  • Philips Head Screwdriver
  • Needle Nose Pliers

That’s it!

With just those two tools, you’re on your way to having a carpet cleaner that works as well as it did when you first opened the box!

Preparing Your Machine

Before you get started, it’s important to make sure your machine is prepped for repairs.

First, you need to be sure it is both switched off, and not plugged in, so there is no risk of electrocution.

Next, remove any liquid from your Bissell Little Green so you don’t spill anything.

Are you ready for the next part?

You’re not going to want to miss this!


Removing The Hose From Your Bissell Little Green Machine

Now that your machine is prepped and ready to be repaired, it’s time to get started.

Make sure you have your tools close by and ready to go.

Follow these easy steps to remove the hose:

  1. First, you want to remove both of the tanks on your machine.
    Simply lift the tank up gently, pull it away from the unit, and set it aside.
  2. Next, you’ll take your screwdriver and remove the two screws that are on the right side of the unit (when looking at it from the front) that are placed underneath the water tank.
  3. On the left side, there is one screw that is located under the tank.

Remove that screw as well, and set in a safe place.

  1. Flip your Bissell Little Green upside down and remove the six screws on the bottom of the unit, and keep these separate from the others.
  2. Gently pull the bottom housing off of the machine.
  3. After you remove the base of the unit, carefully disconnect the clean solution hose hook-up.
  4. Locate the screw that is next to the hose, and remove the screw with your screwdriver.
  5. There is one more screw to remove, it is located under the black solution hose, and maybe a little hard to see initially.
  6. Finally, using your needle-nose pliers, carefully remove the clamp from the clean solution hose.

Now that you have successfully removed the old hose from your Bissell Little Green Machine, you are ready to perform any maintenance or repairs that need to be done.

Make sure you take this opportunity to clean any disassembled parts and check them for any other damage.

I hope these step-by-step instructions have helped guide you through your journey of easily removing the hose from your trusted carpet cleaner.
