I removed a paddle from my Hotpoint machine last week to get a piece of underwire out that got stuck under the drum. This was all fine but the retaining clips snapped on the paddle. There was loads of scum stuck under the paddle so I removed the other 2 to clean. All of them broke and I ordered replacements, but our post is really slow at the moment and washing is building up. Could I safely use the machine with the paddles missing if I put larger items in the machine which arent likely to be sucked through the small gaps from the paddles?

If there are holes underneath the paddles that are larger than the holes in the drum and especially if they are sharp then laundry will get forced through them and may tear it if the hole is large enough quite a chunk of laundry can be forced through (especially in spin) and can catch in the heating element or bracket.
