Hi.
You need to remove the front console panel and then the front panel to change the door seal.

Pull the dispenser drawer out and remove the screws.
Slide the console panel to the right and support it while you remove the rfont panel.
Change the seal, and reassemble in reverse order.

Good luck.

Hi, there - my Hotpoint Ultima WT960 has started leaking. I've had a look underneath and have found the cement block at the bottom of the drum is weton top, as though the leak is at the front of the drum...


Carefully examine the door seal for holes or tear, as this sounds like the reason for leak, if o/k, then could be leak from outer drum front due to crack or hole.
If it is the seal,, then it is fixable, if you are a competent D.IY,er.

Water comeing from drower


Check for water leak with drawer open while washer is operating from beginning of cycle. Your problem could be attributed to one of the following:

* water valve
* water inlet hose
* rubber door seal

Contact an appliance service company.

Changing door seal on hotpoint ultima washing machine


hello if you take the top off the washer and look down inside you should see a metal ring with long screw and nut unscrew this so it's loose you should be able to pull the seal off .then on the front of the washer where the next part of the seal is theres another rmetal thin bit of wire . unscrew the platic clip and the wire should come off. then just pull the seal out of the washer and when you put the new seal on fit it the same way you took it off good luck ps get back to me if you get stuck

Slight leak


It dpends. see if you can see any staining on front of cabinet under the door , if you can then yes it will mean new seal.
Another source of water could be water from the dispenser trickling down the front of the m/c.
Another possibility is that you have a leak from under the front of the washer. Put a piece of newspaper under the front of the washer, this should enable you to pinpoint the source of the leak.
Hope this helps
