    Very fiddley to fit, no mention a spring hook tool was required, when paddle in place, to lift tab to stop the paddle coming back out. I improvised making one from a wire coat hanger. Otherwise item is as expected and now securely fitted.

    This drum paddle was extremely easy to fit into our Hotpoint washing machine. Particularly useful was the online video showing how to remove the old damaged paddle.

  • Q One of my drum paddles broke off and the little hooks that held it in place snapped off. When I have replaced the paddle will it still be safe to use with the broken off bits still somewhere in the machine? 1 Answer

      It is quite likely the part will flush through to the drain pump and jam it stopping it from draining. Do not leave the machine unattended until this is flushed into the filter by the pump and removed.

      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 all of my paddles have come out of washer now in a short space of time! how can i be sure that if i buy replacements that the same wont happen again? 1 Answer

    i have had my washing machine just over a year and a half, and has been fine up until 2 months ago wen the first paddle seemed 2 come loose and now they all have! its so annoying because without them i am finding the machine is making holes in my clothes. does this seem to be a big problem with this machine?

      Hi sammy, it may be that you're not getting the right paddles for your machine - double check to make sure. It could also be that they're not being fitted right - they clip on so just make sure they are secure before running a wash.
