Does anyone know how to remove a broken paddle from the inside of the drum? The end has cracked and has damaged clothes. have tried pushing / pulling but the paddle is still tightly fitted and am not sure what the process to remove it is. Is there a tab somewhere to press down or some special technique to remove it?
Thanks in anticpation.
So I found a thin screwdriver and have poked and felt around all the holes pushed down what I thought felt like a tab, but the paddle doesn't shift forward or back.
With a bit of effort we have clipped away some of the existing plastic, but the middle 2 "posts" next to each other (shown on the new one below) seem to be really tightly fixed to the drum - as if screwed in, is this possible?
@pdanson: Sorry to hear that you're having issues with your washing machine. I should make you aware that attempting to modify or repair the machine yourself can affect your warranty, therefore I recommend reaching out to one of our Support Centres to arrange for an authorised engineer to inspect the device.

I understand that this isn't ideal, and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you.
@Andrewl Thanks - it is out of warranty anyway. Trying to find out how the paddle is attached to determine if it is possible to self replace or will need a repair person.
