Hi, This is a very simple and straight forward job. First turn off the washing machine and remove the plug from the wall and earth the plug on the cabinet of the machine to remove any residule current in the machine. Remove the top of the machine with the screws at the rear of the machine. You can now look in the top? Open the door and take off outer door seal clip ( look and you will see how ) If it is a plastic clip it will have a small cut out in the side for a small screwdriver to be put in a pushed open. It could even be a small spring that is laying in side the small lip of the door seal. You could now attempt the removal of the door seal if you can see the inner clamp to get a long screwdriver onto the screw! If not now remove the soap drawer. Remove screws from around the soap drawer and slide the facia to the right and it should all be off.. Then you can remove the three screws that hold the front on along the top and the same along the bottom edge of the front panel. This then will allow you to take off the front panel and have better access to the door seal. Then once you have replaced the door seal you just need to replace as you took off..
Good luck................

I need to replace a door seal, Hotpoint Ultima WF860


Push the top cover to the rear and lift at the same time, then ease the control panel to the right, you will not get control panel off with the top cover in place.
This will then give you access to the front panel scews, located at the top and bottom of the panel. remove the door seal ,and door lock, then lift the front panel away.

Pull the dispenser drawer out and remove the screws.

Change the seal, and reassemble in reverse order.
