I not sure what the part is called exactly but one of the plastic paddles inside the drum keeps falling out. It will lock in to place securely but then after one or two washes will come loose midcycle. Even replacing the part has not solved the problem.

The plastic paddles in the drum on the later Hotpoint washing machines (WMA models) often come loose and come off altogether. They can be replaced. Hotpoint call them lifters. You usually insert a small screwdriver down one of the holes (I think it's the 3rd one on Hotpoint) and gently press down while sliding the lifter out.

There were at least 3 types of drum lifter for Hotpoint but these days there are loads more . Check out Hotpoint drum lifters

Drum lifters for all brands of washing machine

Washing machine drum lifters


Washing trainers in a washing machine is reputed to damage the drum lifters and paddles inside the drum, particularly on lower quality washing machines.
