    plastic paddles for washing machine drums should never have replaced integral metal ones. They constantly break and render the machine not fit for purpose. I regularly have to call out an engineer(british gas kitchen appliance cover) to replace them. I nearly always have to wait days for an appointment and in the meantime am spending a fortune in using laundry services. Also when the paddles come off mid cycle I sometimes have experienced tearing of garments. I have told the british gas engineers about this problem and they say that there is very litte point in trying to claim for these losses because it is so hard to prove that I am not abusing the machine! The customers are the ones suffering abuse and lack of care and satisfaction!

How do I fit a drum paddle to beko wma 767s


The paddles are normally fitted from inside out of the inner tub. You will have to strip the whole machine down to remove the inner bowl and then you can get to the fitting which holds the paddle in place.

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.

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...
