Door seal


It's held in place by 2 metal rings, 1 just at the edge of the seal of the door opening and 1 at the edge of the seal to the outer drum. Unplug your machine then remove the 1 at the door opening, this will allow acces to the 1 at the drum. If you remove the machine lid it will give you a bit more light to work with and you may be able to access the ring easier to remove it.
Refitting is the reversal of removing it. Fit the drum one first and then the door side and make sure you know which way around the seal fits, usually has drain holes in the bottom section of the seal near the outer drum.

Front door rubber seal


Fairly easy to do. It is held on with 2 wire rings, one on the outside edge of the seal when you open the door and when that is removed there is another one holding it to the outer drum. Removal of the lid may also help with removal of the inner ring. When refitting you press the lip of the seal over the outer drum edge and fit the retaining ring back and then do the same on the front where the door meets the seal. Just make sure the small drain holes in the seal are located at the bottom, best to look at the old one to see how it's fitted before you remove it.

How do I remove and refit the door seal? I'm managed to remove the clip at the front but something I cannot see is attaching the rubber seal at the back.


There is another retaining band , clip, or spring holding the seal to the front of the drum, you need to remove this to remove the sea,double the seal back inside the drum to expose the retainer.

Door seal on servis M9824W has been removed to access bits in the drum. how do i refit it.


The door seal, the hot air inlet and door seal overflow pipe had been disconnected from the drum. Main problem was access to reconnect the door seal overflow which is a very short pipe section going to a small hole in the front of the outer drum and access very difficult.

First remove the top cover of the machine. Two very long screws and two self tappers at the top rear of the cover.

Make sure that the hot air duct is disconnected from the heater outlet and remove the separate plastic duct which bridges between the heater and the hot air duct in the seal.

In this case the door seal had been pulled off the outer drum and the retaining coil spring had also been recovered. If the seal is still in place there is a "handle" moulded into the seal which might assist in starting the removal of the seal.

Remove the outer seal from the front panel of the machine by easing out the wire and spring retainer which can be accessed by the door hinge. Carefully remove the door seal from the front panel and remove it.
Check for damage and if necessary get a replacement.

To Refit
Push the door seal into the machine loosely and connect the overflow pipe (very difficult access). I leaned the machine on its back to make access a little easier.

Next carefully fit the seal onto the outer drum starting at the bottom by the overflow pipe. Be very careful not to disturb the previously fitted overflow pipe. Make sure the seal is correctly fitted over the retaining flange on the drum.

Next fit the retaining spring by threading it behind the overflow pipe and into the recess on the outside edge of the seal, connect the two ends of the spring together to form a circle and carefully stretch it into place around the door seal. Take care at the top to make sure it goes behind the hot air inlet duct.
Apply a little gasket compound onto and under the lip of the overflow pipe where it enters the outer drum at the bottom (a bit messy and awkward).

Next fit the seal to the front panel of the machine ensuring that the tabs on the seal are aligned with the markings around the front edge of the door aperture.

Fit the wire and spring retainer such that the coil spring sits on the left side of the opening within the moulded recess in the door seal.

Now refit the hot air inlet duct between the heater unit and the door seal ensuring that the parts are it the correct position and the two lugs are stretched over the the small spigots on the heater body.

It took 4 hours to do the job but that included the learning curve. Reckon it should only take an hour if two peaple are available when fitting the inner and outer seal retaining springs.

I need to replace the seal round the door but cannot remove the old one


Take the top panel off by removing the two screws underneath the lid at the rear and look down inside towards the front door edge of the drum you will see a very large metal hose clips holds the door seal on. A screwdriver will loosen the clip then the clip will slip off and then the seal can be removed and replaced

Door seal


remove the front retainer, wire/spring affair.
slip the front of the seal off.
seal is held onto drum by a large sprung retainer, remove this by levering it off with a screwdriver.
put the new seal in and it's a case of putting the retainers back. the inside can be made easier with the application of some soapy water in the seals groove that the inner retainer sits in.
good luck as it can be easy or difficult doing the same job.

Replacing a rubber door seal on washer machine


1. Remove door (2 screws).
2. remove top (2 screws at back, sharp slap to front to dislodge).
3. Remove 2 screws holding powder dispenser to inlet valve.
4. Remove 2 screws at front corners securing fascia.
5. Remove fascia and powder dispenser as a unit - note plastic locating pegs on underside and plastic clips locating bottom onto front panel. Take care not to drop one of the rubber seals from valve/powder dispenser joint. Do not disconnect the wiring, just lay the complete assembly on top of the machine.
6. At some point, you will need to release the retaining wire securing the seal to the front panel. This is a thin spring loaded wire. Look after it, you will need it again.
7. Remove two screws at front securing front panel.
8. Remove kick panel - this allows access to two more screws securing bottom of front panel - take these out as well.
9. unclip the wire connector to the door switch.
The front panel may now be lifted from its plastic retainers.
10. The second wire clip can now be removed. The clever clip will need to be released to allow refitting.
11. Thoroughly clean and disinfect the seating for the new seal - you don't want the same gunk growing into the new one straight away.
12. On the drum, you will notice a protruding moulding at about 5 o'clock. There is a matching flange on the seal to help you locate it accurately - start here and fit the seal.
13. Fit the wire retainer - you will need a good pair of long-nose pliers to retension the wire.
14. Reassemble the machine in the reverse order - take care not to mix up the screws! remember to fit the seal to the front panel before refitting the door. Do not release the spring from the wire, carefully stretch it into place.

Replacing door gasket


Depends on which machine you have but essential it is all the same. There will be a ring on the outside of the seal( outside of the machine) take that off and fold the seal ove into itself. Or even fold it into the drum. Than you can reach the retainer ring on the outside of the drum. remove that one and replace in the opposit sequence.
Aint to hard but just a little annoying to do.
Good luck
