Hotpoint Bwd129 Broken Drum Lifter Locking Tab

Recommended Posts


One of my drum lifter paddles broke off in my Hotpoint BWD129. Some of the plastic clips had broke on it so I ordered a new one. When I went to fit it, I noticed that the metal locking tab has snapped off the drum so although I can fit the plastic drum lifter paddle - it comes off under a heavy wash load due to the lack of a tab.

Is there any kind of contraption I can buy as a replacement to the metal locking tab to ensure the drum lifter paddle can't slide off easily.

Thanks in advance,

There won't be anything I'm afraid, so unless you can come up with some way of fixing it properly it's potentially a scrap machine because it would need a new inner drum. That alone would be too expensive for most people and that's assuming they are available. If it's fitted with one of the common welded tubs that can't be stripped down you can't even replace the drum without having to fit an entire outer tub complete.
