    A couple of weeks after buying 1 paddle another broke off. I did see other people had mentioned buying more than one for this reason, unfortunately I didn't! So this time I have bought two as the original paddles obviously have a certain life span. Be warned and buy more than one!

    This is the second time I have used this site, I have recommended it to my female co-workers and friends. Although I only have bought paddles for my drum, once I found the part required the rest was so easy. I can use with confidence, knowing I can find what I need if something fails.

  • 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 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.
