Push a screwdriver into the 3rd hole and this will depress the tab on the drum that stops the lifter from moving towrds you. Once the tab is bent down a wee bit the lifter should slide forward and come out. To replace a new lifter the tab needs to be bent back up a wee bit say 3mm proud of the drum and push the new lifter back in until you hear a snap. That's it.

Grasp it firmly with both hands, and pull it towards you, it requires quite a bit of effort to do this.
Fit new one by pushing it in and towards rear of drum until you feel it click into place..
Please rate my solution.

Can i replace the drum paddle lifter on hotpoint wmd960, one of mine has a hole in the side of it!


You can indeed, part number for a new lifter is 1604464 and is aprox 11-15pounds.

just basically slide the old lifter towards you( bit of force) and it will come off.

line the new one up to the holes and slide back into posistion

Lights flashing on Hotpoint BHWM129


I had a similar problem with my Hotpoint BHWM 129 washing machine. The washer would not spin or drain properly and all the lights flashed after a wash cycle.
The solution was to pull the washer out and UNBLOCK the drain pipe which was crushed AND filled with 'gunk'. Once the crushed pipe was massaged back to normal size and the gunk was removed my problem was fixed. Not a nice job but I was going to ring HOTPOINT at £125 a call out fee so I am happy. I hope this helps someone else in time.

Hotpoint WF240P on off button stuck in.


If indeed the board is broken, then the price reflects what would be Hopoint's charge, as there repair charge is nearly £100.oo plus the board at approx£80.00.
If it is under 5 years old, then you should be able to claim under the 5 year parts cover.You could fit it your self, as it is a straghtforward repair.
If you need any more info, e-mail me.

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...
