There is a spring at the bottom center of the door gasket. Stretch that out and a wire will come off from around the gasket you can then pull the gasket off and reach in. Be sure you get the gasket back on all the way and the wire right or it will leak. Good luck.

Remove the rear panel of the washer.
You will see the heater element at the rear of the drum,it has 2 wires going to it.
The thermistor as it is called is located at the end of the element,, unplug the connector on the thermistor. and pull the old one out, refit new thermistor, and connector.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

The rubber ring on washing machine aquarius wf541 has black stuff and is really filthy all over. i want to remove it to clean it. how do i remove it.


Removing the tub shield gasket is not a simple matter I'm afraid, though not horibly complex. You will need to remove the top of the machine and unclip the fixing ring that holds it to the tub from inside the machine (This is a bit of a tight squeeze!). There is also a fixing ring on the outer edge of the tub shield gasket (Where the door seals to the rubber), usually a clip device that can be unclipped with a screwdriver. The gasket can then be removed. REassembly is a simple reverse of the removal.

HOWEVER, before you do this, you may find that having cleaned it as best as you can, painting some household bleach on the gasket and leaving it overnight then washing it down the next morning will be a great help (You might want to do this for a couple of nights in a row).

I have a front loader washing machine. The rubber inside is going mouldy. I have tried to clean same without success - any suggestions!


Unfortunately, once the door seal goes mouldy it is impossible to get clean. Only option is to replace seal. Once seal is replaced, you need to wipe it dry after each wash and leave door ajar to prevent reoccurence of mould.

The rubber section of my Hotpoint WF640P has gone mouldy


The problem is basically caused by doing too many low temp washes.

The scum you refer to is actually bacteria that is bulding up on the door seal.

To avoid this problem reoccuring, the best thing to do is to have the door seal replaced, and periodically do a high temp wash with powder in, but without clothes..
This is called a maintenance wash, and is recommended by most manufactures
Also, after each wash, clean and dry the door seal, this will help prolong it's life.
Hope this helps answer your question.

thanks.

Does the drum have to be removed to replace both bearings and oil seal on an indesit wash machine type we16


No, remove the drive belt pulley and remove the 8 bolts holding the x shaped cast iron frame with the bearings in, lay the washer face down (ensuring adequate protection to the door and controls) whilst pulling the x shaped frame away from the drum tap the threaded shaft lightly with a rubber faced mallet and the frame will come away complete with bearings and seal. To replace the frame (with new bearings and seal installed) I used a large socket and long bolt to draw the shaft through the new bearings.

Rubber door seal mouldy


Wouldn't normallyexpect a few mould spots to leave that bad a smell, so likely you've got two distinct issues.

Starting with the water trapped in the seal: Open the door and very carefully slip your fingers into the seal where the water is gathering (to stop your hand getting trapped between the drum and the outer casing, put your other hand inside the drum and push it up out of the way - just be careful not to let it spring back too fast).

At the very lowest point,of the space inside the seal, either at the very front or the very back (so tucked into the corner between the floor of the seal and it's front or back wall), you'll find a little drainage slot. Once you've cleared the inevitable blockage from this slot, your seal problems should vanish.

If the foul smell is coming from inside the machine, the problem is likely to be grey sludge inside the works of the machine. This is usually caused by modern detergents not being quite as good at working at 30 degrees as they claim to be. The answer is to run a cycle every now and then with no laundry, detergent, or conditioner in the machine, on the longest, hottest programme the machine will support. This should be sufficient to dissolve the rotting sludge and pump it away down the drain.

Trouble with Indesit WI 102 washing machine


I had trhe same problem and was going deaf!!! I know this is probably too late for your machine but it may be usefull to someone else with this model.

Originally thought the bearings had gone but had great trouble trying to source some through UK websites so decided to strip the machine. Did this by touch (no manual!) and eventually found that the bolts holding the bottom weight to the drum had all come loose (all 3!). Trying to access them to tighten was the biggest problem as the front of the machine is welded on.

Managed the above by removing the rubber door seal from the door only and tightening two of the bolts from inside the door. The third I managed to access from beneath the machine. All were tightened using 10mm socket on a bar with extension (curtain pole!) slid over the end.

During this process I had the machine on its side, removed the securing brackets, top weight + springs and wedged the drum from beneath and the side as much towards the rear of the machine as possible to aid access.

Good Luck!
