Question about Zanussi Washing Machines
Turn off atmains
remove the clamp that secures seal to cabinet and peel away the seal.
the seal is held onto the tub by a large spring. at bottom, pull hard down and out and seal will come away.
on new seal, lubricate the slot that goes onto the drum rim with washing up fluid.
start the slot onto the drum rim at the top and work your way round in both directions pressing slot onto rim. this is quite hard work and you may need several attempts.
when slot is on rim all the way round, refit the spring into the outer slot of the seal. this is quite difficult and an extra pair of hands helps
refit seal onto cabinet rim - this is easy and refit outer clamp.
test on rinse cycle for leaks as the water level is higher.
water will foam till the washing up fluid is washed away
note that the seal has a specific way up indicated by an arrow
