Question about Bissell Vacuums
The next thing that you need to do is replace the belt. Even if it's not cracked or worn, many times it's too loose, and it won't turn to rotor efficiently.
Believe it or not, just replacing the belt may be all that you need to do!

The filter if its dirty in gives bad smell.Also if it gets worn out or very old it gives bad smell.Many other users too have noticed this bad smell.Replacing the filter helped many other users too.
The worst part being smell of the filter once it goes bad it stays bad and fills the room with a nasty rotten smell.
Also you try cleaning the filters.As you mentioned in your question that you have already tried this but try to clean the filter as per the instructions mentioned in the service manual.And see if that reduces the bad smell.
The manual specifically states not to use a mild cleaning agent while washing the filters, you may wash the filters in cold or warm water using a scented mild detergent, and make sure to remove any excess water in the filters since this is what normally creates the horrible smelling odor after it has been washed and dried.Also let the filter get completely dried up before you refit the filter again.If its fitted wet the bad odor smell comes.You can use hairdryer to dry the filter quickly.Check out if this is helping.Thanks.Helpmech.

Is the noise coming from the belt area, ie. beater bar, or does it sound like it is coming from the motor itself? It is possible there is something caught in the brush roller.
When you turn the roller off, does the noise go away?
