    The product was spot-on. Customers for this item should give close attention to the advice offered by E Spares. There are three types of paddle and it is important that you get the right one. If the E Spares advice is followed you should be ok. The part is very easy to install. Make sure the paddle is the rtight way round in the drum then just push the lugs into the holes in the drum then slide the paddle away from yourself until it clicks into place. Works like a charm.

  • Q Hi--I have a Hotpoint WMA62 and so I think I need version 2 of the drum lifter. One of my lifters has come off; the plastic tabs are broken on one side. However I can't see where there is a metal tab to attach it to? 1 Answer

    Is it just the holes in the metal drum where the plastic tabs fit in?

  • Q The drum paddle has come off, I have found the part, No ES186680. If Tthis fits onto the metal tab how can I be sure it's the drum paddle I need to replace and not the metal tab. 1 Answer

      if its a WMA33 washing machine like mine, then you need the version 2 paddle, i made the mistake once of getting version 1, but i returned it, and got it exchanged for version 2 without any problem, but version 2 paddle IS the one you need. x
