    Good service

    Very helpful video showing how to identify the different paddle versions. Very simple to fit. If I'd been aware it was as straightforward I would have replaced it before the old paddle became totally detached from the drum.

    Elderly washing machine repaired

    Some bright spark washed his skateboard wheels in mum's washing machine and damaged the drum lifters (or paddles). Found the correct parts on the website, ordered and then received them early next day. Fitted in 5 mins and saved a pile of money instead of calling out repairmen. The instruction videos are brilliant. Will deffo use eSpares again.

Hi, I have a WD440P but I am still puzzled as to how to choose the version. My drum paddles have same sized holes and 2 of the paddles have pips at the front, but strangley the one that is broken does not (either at the front or the back). I have had this from new and its not been repaired before. So do I buy v3 or v2?

  • try feeling the back of the drum lifter, they can be put on the wrong way round. By philipnotphil - Southport UK - 16 March 2010
  • i would buy version 3 seen as two of your drum lifters have the three pips By icarus - - 23 March 2009

please advise where this part can be found on a indesit wg820.The drum of the washing machine is making a grinding noise and it appears to be slumped forwards.

  • This part is inside the washing machine where your clothes go, replacing this will not prevent the drum from slumping forwards. By philipnotphil - Southport UK - 16 March 2010

    Hi Mimi I can't match the WG820 exactly in our database of Indesit washing machines, as there is several WG820s, each followed by a different letter. If you could double check your washing machine for the model number we would be happy to find the right drum lifter for you. For help finding your model number, refer to our handy Finding Model Numbers guide here:

I have a paddle that has three sets of holes on one side (machine Hoover nextra8) I have looked at the tutuorial that you have on line but can not seem to get the old paddle out, it would appear that there is a small screw holding it in place by the drum, could you tell me how to get to this screw. Thank you Julie

    Unfortunately, other than our video on the website, we cannot advise on the removal of this part. Please contact the manufacturer of your appliance or an engineer for support.

Answer this question

The model is just over three years old. The existing drum lifter is blue and has three pips at the front. I am confused as to whether I need a metal clip to fit a replacement as it looks like plastic locators have broken off original part. Also all holes along top are same size with a slightly wider gap between hole three and four. DRG no on inside of original is 230006680

  • The metal clip is part of the washing machine drum, it is not a separate part. By philipnotphil - Southport UK - 16 March 2010
