If you have refitted the door seal correctly, then what you need to do is turn back the seal in on itself, and starting at the top start feeding the spring around the recessed lip at the rear of the seal, as you progress round stretch the spring as much as you can to get it all the way round the seal, you will find it easier to do, if you can have someone to hold the spring to stop it slipping off.
It is a fiddley job and you may find it slips off part way round, then you will just have to start again.
You will find it easier to fit , if you tilt the m/c back, this will give you more room to work in.
If you have got it on properly, then you should be able to pull on the seal with out it coming off.

    I was wondering how you got on, as you left no feed back or comments on my solution.

    I do like to have feedback and comments, as this is the only way I know if I have proposed the correct solution.

    I look forward to hearing from you .

    Thankyou.

How to change doorseal on zwf1221w


The procedure is as follows to replace the door seal ,but it is not easy. Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.
Take the top off the appliance and open the door.
Remove the plastic seal retainer and peel the seal off the front panel.
The seal to tub is held by a spring.
Just pull hard on the old seal and it will come off, you'll then find the spring in the groove of the seal.
 
Putting it back on is a nightmare.
Put some washing up liquid around the part of the seal that fits to the tub, this will help it slip on.
Tip the machine back about 30 to 40 degrees, this will give an inch or two more room for your hands.
Fit the seal to the tub, now the struggle begins. You have to fit the spring.
Fit this around the top, then make a wedge with kitchen towel and jam it in between the front weight and the seal, this will jam the spring in place at this point. You can now use two hands to put the seal on.
For getting parts you can get it from www.repairclinic.com
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

How to change door seal on Zanussi ZJ1218 washing machine


Hello,
I hope you have small hands,and you are pretty handy with them cos these seals are tricky if its your first.
First remove the nylon clip around the front of seal it will pull off from bottom.then release outer rubber,then you have to just get your hand or fingers to pull at inner rubber,there is a spring around inner rubber lip but to make things awkward there is also a concrete counterweight around this.Once you have old seal out get new one and wipe some fairy liquid around inner lip to refit make sure pointy arrow is at the top.This is the tricky bit and hard to explain but you can only do it by feel and keep trying to get a part of inner lip over casing lip once it starts it can go easy or hard you may have to try a couple of times until you can feel it is on all the way round.Once on the spring has to be fitted its also tricky,start by door switch and put a long screwdriver thru. hole for door catch try to hold with knee or get help.Work it around keep screwdriver in until spring is nearly on keep hand on spring then gently try to remove screwdriver make sure spring on fully,now fit outer seal lip and fit nylon clamp.You may find it easier to tilt machine back slighty.I do this for a living and it can go easy or hard.Best of luck.

Rubber seal damaged. needs to be replaced kenmore model 970-c44052-00 How do I remove sides to get at it?


there is no need to remove the side to replace the door seal, just behind the door seal there is a spring clip undo this and fold the seal into the drum were you should see another spring clip undo that as well and the door seal comes out from the front through the hole in the door, to refit a new fold the seal till its inside out and fitted on the inner drum first fit the inner clip then pull it through the door hole and fit the outer spring clip out side the door

How to fit door seal gasket to service washing machine?????


Remove plastic clamp holding seal to cabinet and peel off the cabinet.push downwards on the seal close to the tub and the seal will come off - its just held by a spring round the periphery.

To fit new seal:
Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid - essential
Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange.When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal. this is quite difficult and you may need another pair of hands.
Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring.
Test for leaks before using, rinse to test as the water level is higher.

Replace door gasket


It sounds like you have left the spring on the inside lip of the door opening when you removed the old seal,
You will have to take the seal off again and feel for the spring on the lip of the front of the drum, you will find it easier if you have something to hook it out with,it is fiddley, but you must get the spring out, or the seal will not stay on
Refit seal as before, and double it back inside the drum,then fit the spring in the groove that you can feel on the lip of the door seal. Work the spring all the way rond feeding it into the groove as you go round, you will find it a lot easier if you have someone there to hold the spring as you are are fittingit, it is very fiddley, stick with it!!!.

How to replace rubber door seal


when you open the door you find a this wire clamp round the edge of the door seal, this just comes off with little force, this has to go back on obviously so don't bend it, the door seal just folds back on itself, the clamp on the drum end is often a large thin spring, and that also just pulls off, the seal then also comes away with a little pull, the new seal is fitted with the groove either side of the drum lip, then the spring is put back, take note how all is removed before working on it? the front of the seal is fitted then the wire, close the door to check a tight but easy fit, check for any leaks and correct fitting before leaving machine unattended any time, sound worse that what it actually is, if i have helped rate me,
