SOURCE: Dryer Paddle Loose

Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.

This should allow you to access the tumbler.

The plastic paddles in the drum on the laterwashing machines often come loose and come off altogether. They can bereplaced. call them lifters. You usuallyinsert a small screwdriver down one of the holes (it's the 3rd one on ) andgently press down while sliding the lifter out.
Washing trainers in a washing machine is reputedto damage the drum lifters and paddles inside the drum, particularly onnon-quality washing machines.

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...

Need to remove drainage pipe, can't remove white plastic clip, is there a knack?


Remove power first! The pump is very easy to remove, ( unlocks from the base ) take the pump apart and check for foreign objects inside the pump assy. The power wires pull off and matters not which way they go back on. Also check the hoses to and from the drain pump for any  foreign objects. The pump is usually at the back right side ( looking at the washer from the front ).

Whirlpool ghw9400su0 paddle broke off tub


go to www.repairclinic.com enter your model number and scroll down all the way and click the red 100 you'll see. when new page shows up look for part number 1059587. I think this is the part you need and see the price diff. between your quote and the actual price. You may just want to order from them and do it yourself. It does look as if it snaps in.

I need to get access to the drum, how easy is this to strip out?


if you remove one of the paddles from inside the drum you may be able to grab it with long nose pliers or wire coathanger.
put a small screw driver into the paddle's 3rd hole from the front to press in a metal tab carefully not to bend it completely and pull the paddle towards the front and it will come off.
if the bra wire is up the back of the drum you may be able to grab it with removal of the heater element round the back of the machine at the bottom of the drum, loosen the 10mm bolt,(not off clompletely) and wiggle the heater out.

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.

Washihg paddle won't stay in


There is more than one version of drum paddles, assuming you have got the right one, then locate the paddle in the slots in the drum, and push firmly into place, you should feel it click in to place, to check, pull the paddle lightly back towards you, it should remain fixed in place.
Also make sure you have got it the right way round.
Please rate my solutrion.
Thankyou.

My affinity washer (front load ATF6000ES) is leaking detergent


are you using he detergent?. if what you see on floor is pure detergent then look at dispenser housing for cracks. remove drawer, open, depress lever in back and pull out, to see inside housing. If the screw or mounting for the loose paddle (baffle) broke and slammed housing in some way then you would also have a hole in the tub. You can easily remove top, 3 screws in back to check this. If tub is broke, buy new machine!
baffles are usually attached with screws from outside basket, requiring removal from tub
