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 siad on

    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?

A paddle broke of my hotpoint aquarius, but the resulting hole ended up ripping up the clothes and blocking the machine with lint.

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

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

How do I replace a drum paddle in my Hoover washing machine HSWF167


there should be a plug on the top of the agitator. pry off this cap with a screwdriver. you will see the hex nut that fastens the agitator. remove the hex nut and lift the agitator from the transmission shaft. Installation is the reverse of removal.
