    This must be the worst design ever- the six paddle lugs keep on breaking - I have now replaced at least 11 of these units in less than three years. The design is rubbish! Any more failures and I will be throwing away a perfectly good washing machine and replacing with another make - it will work out cheaper in the long run.

  • Q One paddle is now missing. Until i get my new one posted can i use my washing machine as normal 2 Answers

      I would order at least a couple of paddles to save you waiting in future. I also have a IWB6123UK and I had to replace one paddle due to damage but I orderd two. Iv lhad all three paddles come out several time since new. Iv got now that I spend time looking at the machine or listening for the paddles going around the drum, but otherwise it does a good wash.

      only if you're prepared to have your clothes sliced up, all the edges of the location of the old paddle are razor sharp I'd wait if i was you.

  • Q should paddles be secure with no movement and if the are lose should you take them out and put them back in 1 Answer

    By Patricia - Bromley - 24 March 2016

      Paddles should generally by a tight fit to the drum and should not be able to be lifted at one side so if loose remove and check if replacements are needed.

  • Q Why do my paddles keep breaking? 1 Answer

    I am on my third set in 6 weeks, costing a fortune! Why do they keep breaking? Is it possible to glue them in place?

    By Michelle - Colchester - 07 February 2015

      It is not possible to glue them, make sure they clip in place and do not come loose if pulled. Check the machine drains from full to empty in under 50 seconds. if not check for a blockage. Also ensure there is enough washing in to prevent clothes floating in the drum and being hit by the paddles as this will damage them.

  • Q Help! All my drum paddles have fell off in one wash! 1 Answer

    All 3 paddles fell off in the same wash. It was very noisey and when I checked the paddles have fell off and the metal clips have also fell off! This apparently is not covered in the 1 year warranty. So if I get these will they actually clip on securely without the clips?

      If the metal 'tab'on the drum that holds the paddle in place is not locking the paddle will come off. Speak to a local washing machine engineer as he may be able to fit a stainless self tapping screw to hold them in place. If not it is a new drum if the clips do not hold the paddles.
