Drum Paddle broken Hotpoint Aquarius

What is the purpose of the drum Paddle if one of them is broken should I replace it?

Posted by on

  • ingrid99 Jun 18, 2008

    One of the drum paddles actually came off my machine (AEG oko-lavamat 1261 turbo sensotronic). I can get the parts but want to find out if I need an engineer for this or if the paddle can be fixed from the inside of the drum, in which case I would attempt the repair myself.



    None of the service companies can't (or won't) tell me.



    Can anyone help?

The paddles in the drum are there to agitate the clothes being washed. Without them, it is possible that the drum would just spin while the clothes sat still at the bottom.

For optimum performance, it is best to have all the paddles present, but if one is broken/missing then it shouldn't have too much effect.

Hope this helps,

Matt

Either way, you must remove front panel (door panel) to expose the front drum end retainer brackets, which you must unscrew and remove to get at screws to tighten or replace missing paddle blade. You can get replacement part at www.repairclinic.com their very reasonable

I have a Hotpoint AQXXF149PM washing machine, and two of the drum paddle lifters have fallen out.I have the replacement parts but cannot work out how to fit them, as a piece of metal projecting at 90...


I have exactly the same problem on my ...129 model. I'm a mechanical engineer and looking at the design it apears that these aren't designed to be replaced. The 90 degree tab looks to be only accessed from the outside of the drum so can only lock the tumbler in place from the factory. It needs to be bent flat to get the paddle on!

I hope someone can prove me wrong??

How do i fix a paddle on the drum? I have zanussi machine. Paddle broken off. If i buy a new paddle how do i fix it on? Have tried to glue old paddle with no success!!


Hello,
With some of these machines now they have sealed drums.On some models you can access through the bottom sump hose and others you may be able to get access through the hose by the soap box.There are a couple of drums where you can drill a hole in the top to get at the tags on the paddles and some drums where you cannot do without changing the complete tub.

Hope this helped.

Fin inside came off


remove toe kick panel screws by the floor and lift upward on front cover and pull upward to remove like lifting a car hood,then there are screws just inside the bottom side of the top cover,remove these and tip top back and secure top as to not break off electrical connections off control panel,then you can access the screws for the paddle fins to re-secure to the drum,if they're oblong from wear and tear either replace or fill the hole with a cement for this purpose and put in 2 match stick pieces (quickly)before glue sets and this will take up slack and seize paddle screw all in one

My WD440 has trown its drive belt and something


hi
it sounds like there is a sock or something simular stuck between the drum and tank,the paddle is removable which may help you hook out the item,if you grab the drum paddle from the rear and pull it towards you it will then lift up,once you have removed the offending item,you just line up the slots on the drum with the pegs on the paddle and push towards the rear of the machine and you will here a click,this means the paddle is secure.
