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

How do i remove the drum from a Hotpoint Aquarius WML 560 P


Hi,
There is not much you can do to remove the drum of your WML 560 P Washing Machine...you can remove the bearings and door but you can't remove the drum personally. You'll have to take it in for service but here is a manual for you which you can read through to see if there is anything about removing the drum. Click on the link below to be directed to your Hotpoint Aquarius WML 560 P User Manual homepage...

How to remove the detergent dispenser drawer aquarius WML 520


Instructions for the machine, and specifically the detergent dispenser drawer, are here:

http://www.manualslib.com/manual/70853/Hotpoint-Wml-520.html?page=10#manual



It does NOT show how to remove the drawer. It is likely that the top of the machine must be "popped off" to do so. The best advise is to search for a Repair Manual if you simply must get the drawer out. I believe one of the manuals shown on this webpage may be the repair manual:

http://www.index-of-pdfs.com/hotpoint-aquarius-wml-520-user-guide-pdf.html



Most washing machine tops are simply a pressure fit that snaps on to the body. A firm grasp on the front sides of the top and a brisk pull may well pop it off.



Be sure to unplug the machine before you attempt any service!


Washing machines can be full of water AND electricity. That is most certainly a recipe for one, big, hydro-electric

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.

Drum makes grinding noise when turning


Hi.
spin the drum by hand, if it feels rough or is noisy, then you probably have drum bearing failure.
Another possibility is one or more of the drum paddles may have come adrift..
These can be replaced.
