Drum paddle lifters stir clothes during thorough wash cycles

The paddle lifters inside a washing machine drum gently move your clothes up and down as it spins to get a good and thorough wash. These lifters help create a swirling motion with water for a more efficient washing process. 

Why does the drum paddle lifter become faulty?

Wear and tear is a common culprit. Over time, the constant motion and contact with clothes can cause the paddle lifters to weaken or break. Additionally, if you frequently wash heavy items or overload the machine, it puts extra strain on the lifters, making them more prone to damage.

Sometimes, it's not just wear and tear, but also foreign objects that can cause trouble. Small items like coins, buttons, or even loose threads can get tangled around the paddle lifters, causing them to become jammed or broken.
