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

Water is leaking from the door seal I need to


Before you remove the door, be certain the bottom seal is not folded forward so that it does not seal. I fixed mine by opening the door partway and running my finger along the bottom, pressing the seal back in. If you need the manual, it is here: http://www.manualshark.org/b/zanussi-6/ One of my favorite appliance help websites is: http://fixitnow.com/

How to fit a Zanussi fridge door seal


You mean you have a door gasket. A good, step-by-step article on this pesky concept of "panel-screw" gasket installation is found on this handy page:

Zanussi fjr1454w door seal change.


with both clips,< locking rings > removed seal it is removable by just working it off the drum slowly,< there is overflow tube in front bottom side to disconnect also>. It is very important when installing new one that you put it in the same positiont as old one and lock rings go on same as well.

Zanussi washing machine door seal removal


This is quite tricky, first take off the retaining ring on the front door port, remove the seal from this rim. The back of the seal is held by a spring band. the best way to remove it is to get a good grip on the seal at the top then lift and pull (thats the easy bit), to put the new one on i always lubricate the recess on the seal with washing-up liquid and feed the seal on from the bottom with one hand whilst following it around with the other hand to stop it coming off. Once it is fully on it can then be rotated easily into the correct position. Getting the spring back on will require an extra pair of hands for obvious reasons.

Good luck with it and keep the swear box handy lol.

Zanussi jetsystem 1400 door seal


IF YOU REMOVE THE SEAL UNLESS YOU ARE AN ENGINEER YOU WILL FIND IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO REFIT IT, TO CLEAN OUT THE SLUDGE USE A PLASTIC SCOURING PAD LIKE THE ONES USED FOR CLEANING DISHES. IFTHE SEAL IS BLACK THIS CANNOT BE CLEANED IT IS A CHEMICAL REACTION TO DETERGENTS ETC BUT IS NOT HARMFUL TO ITEMS BEING WASHED HOPE THIS WILL HELP.
