You will achieve nothing by removing the door seal .
Depending what is in there, better to leave alone and trust it will find its way into the filter.
If it is anything substantial then it involves major work.

Hotpoint aquarius wd420 cannot stretch drive belt on there is no slide bar on motor which is fixed solid even after bolts are lossened its a washer drier no obvious way of attaching belt


There is no adjustment provided for tensioning belt as it is a stretch belt.
Best way to do it is to remove the rear panel, tilt the weaher forwards, get someone to hold it for you.
Put belt round motor pulley first, then slowiy feed it round the drum pulley, turning the drum pulley at the same time, it will be very tight, so watch your fingers, just keep going until belt is on, if it comes off, just start over
You can line it up properly in the motor pulley grooves once you have got the belt on.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Spin the drum by hand, it make metal noise


Remove the rear lower panel of washer,and remove the drum belt.
From the front of the washer, spin the drum by hand, and if it feels rough or is rumbling, could be the drum bearings are going.
If there is something caught, it will make a completely different kind of noise, more like a catching or rubbing noise.
If no noise,then could be the motor that is casing the noise.
Hope this helps.

How do you remove underwire lodged between drum and outer case


hi to remove bra wire from between drums ? you might try this 1st ? if you diconnect water supply hoses and unplug power supply then remove rear panel from machine you will have access to the large rubber drain hose from outer drum down to discharge pump ? ok hose is held by spring wire clips both ends remove clips then hose you may find bra wire either in hose or close to drum drain if you need ? feel inside drom via drain hole ? or probe with a piece of coat hang wire ? you may even find the mysterious missing sock/ thong / etc when you disconnect the hose too?? any debri has to lay in bottom of outer drum and so a little patience will locate them using this method instead of removing the main front door sealto drum for access to same area also with rear panel off you can check belt tension ? hope this helps/inspires you ? best wishes from uk

if the drum is tight to turn ,then the main bearings have probably seized, or their could be something fast in the drum. Remove belt, and try to turn the drum by hand , it shuold be free with no resitance.
If it is noisy or feels rough, then the bearings have gone.
