Hi, I’m Rory from eSpares and in this video I’m going to talk about Hotpoint drum lifters.

Drum lifters are paddles that sit inside the washing machine and provide agitation for the clothes as the drum spins.

Confusingly enough Hotpoint have made three very similar looking drum lifters, that actually fit different washing machines in the Hotpoint family of brands. Now you need to ensure that you choose the right lifter for your machine otherwise it simply will not fit. The easiest way to do that is by searching for your model number on the eSpares website, your model number can be found on the inside of the door or round the back of the washing machine.

If for whatever reason you can’t find your machines model number I’m going to take you through the slight visual differences so you can visually match these lifters with the ones in your machine.

This is drum lifter version 1, it has a bigger hole three holes from the front and a slightly bigger hole three holes from the back. This is version 2, it has equally sized holes from front to back, and this is version 3, it has equally sized holes from front to back and it also has these three little pips at the front.

Now these three lifters are fitted in slightly different ways but it’s not that difficult to replace them yourself, just make sure that you get the right one.

These three lifters are available on the eSpares website. Thanks for watching.
