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.

SOURCE: 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...

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.

Coins inside Kennmor dryer drum paddles

You will need a thin putty knife. Run the drier to get it warm inside. Use the putty knife to slip under the paddles and lift them just enough to let the coins drop out when you rotate and raise the drum on that side.

The spindles that you attach the paddles to is leaking a black lubricant or something like that. I was making a simple sweet dough. By the way, I NEVER bake in the bread maker. I only use it to knead the...

Your machine has a lubricating grease that is under the small gasket or washer at the bottom of the pan under each paddle. After a lot of use the little gasket can fail and the grease can get get past the gasket and into your bread. The best thing to do is either replace your pan with what is called a "pan assembly which will include everything but the paddles. If you decide to do that be sure to keep your paddles. The other choice of course is to replace your machine which might not be a bad idea if your machine has been used a lot because you would have a new pan assembly but older parts may begin to fail such as the drive belt. Bread machines aren't all that expensive anymore so you may want to go ahead and replace especially since you just use your machine for making dough.

B2300 Bread Machine: Good morning - Both paddles in the machine come of...

I am experiencing the same thing. I've spoken with a rep at 1-800-231-9786 and they said that if my machine was still under warranty they would replace the paddles and the pan. I purchased mine in 2007 and therefore my cost to replace the above would be $68.00 Cdn. That's getting close to purchasing a new machine. Does anyone have any ideas... wrap the rotating shafts with plumber's tape or anything else that might ensure the paddles will stay in place?
