    Same here , on our 3rd replacement, they just wont stay in, it would seem that a metal tag should stop then from coming out but I cant get the tag to stay up in place when I fit the paddle, do I need to take the drum out?

There are usuallyplastic tags that need to be fully engaged for it to stay put. if you can pull it out again then it won't stay in during a wash.

Drum paddles replace


Assuming the paddles are attached with nuts/bolts I would suggest using Locktite. If that is not an option, lock washers. If the paddles do not attach using nuts/bolts, invest in some high end epoxy.

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...

ASKO washer WL6511XXLPP


Purchased ASKO Washer WL6511XXLP and Gas Dryer with pedestals, 12/01/09. It threw a drum paddle during 2nd. wash cycle. Damaged several articles of clothing.
ASKO replaced the paddle 2/19/09 after a lot of phone calls (lip service from the ASKO 800 #). They claimed the part had to come from Sweden (reason for delay).
Washer threw another drum paddle during 4th. wash cycle. Damaged several more articles of clothing. We have made no claim for the damaged clothing, the retailer has been cooperative.

ASKO has promised to replace the washer after the retailer we purchased the washer from, strongly encouraged them to do so. We are still without a washer (03/23/09). My wife and I are retired, I am 76. Point being; we do not abuse washing machines and we don't like going to a launder-mat.
I know this is not the venue to address this problem, but am at my wits end.
