SOURCE: drum paddle keeps coming off had machine blocage

Are you sure you have got the correct paddle, as there is more than one version, and also there is a right and wrong way to fit them.
Make sure you push it hard into the locating slots, you should feel it click into place, to be sure it is located properly, lightly pull it, and it should remain in position.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: I have a Hotpoint AQXXF149PM washing machine, and

I have exactly the same problem on my ...129 model. I'm a mechanical engineer and looking at the design it apears that these aren't designed to be replaced. The 90 degree tab looks to be only accessed from the outside of the drum so can only lock the tumbler in place from the factory. It needs to be bent flat to get the paddle on!

I hope someone can prove me wrong??

Drum paddles keep falling out (Hotpoint BWD129 washer/dryer)


I had this problem, and I was advised by the guy who has apparently 'replaced hundreds of these bloody things on this housing estate' to never buy this machine because 'its cheap and ****'

However, if you bend the long central tab ,the one that looks like it does bugger all, upwards into the drum (carefully though, only bend it a little) this will increase the tab tension, and your lifters should last for over six months instead of the previous couple of washes mine was doing.
As for the comment on washing trainers, I put a single towel in my machine and the lifters broke...

Loose Paddle in the Drum


not the right method, the paddles are the plastic things inside the metal drum. they are held in by tabs that slide into slots in the drum and a metal tab from the drum flips over a ledge underneath the paddle.
if its loose you may need to replace it, they are available as a spare part and come with instructions. you will need to varify which version you have by counting the bumps on the end of the padle, should be 2 or 3.
basically you put a small screwdriver down on of the holes in the top of the paddle, i think the 3rd one, to push the metal drum tab down enough to be able to pull the paddle towards you and out of it's slots. carefull not to push the tab down too far as it will bend inside the drum and isd pain to bend back again.
