Question about Hotpoint Aquarius WF000 Front Load Washer
I have a loose paddle and I believe i can tighten it if I get the top off but although I have removed the two screws at the back it wont move. Any ideas how I can get the top off and is the right method for tightening the paddle
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.
