I've owned my machine for about 18 months and today one of the plastic paddles inside the drum sheared off leaving jagged holes and rendering the machine unusable. I have 4 teenagers living at home and have been washing for my another daughter/partner & baby, whose washing machine is currently broken - so I cannot be without my machine.
When I reported the broken paddle the service dept said they were out of stock and I would have to wait about a week. Also they are only sold in sets of three which costs £39 odd. Not impressed. In future I will look for metal paddles when I choose a washing machine.
