Follow these steps to replace your door seal:


For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

Mouldy Door Seal


Use tilex to remove the mold. Then see what happens. If the mold comes back right away it may be a problem with the rubber gasket not seating as it should. Let me know. And please rate my solution. thanks.

Zanussi jetsystem 1400 door seal


IF YOU REMOVE THE SEAL UNLESS YOU ARE AN ENGINEER YOU WILL FIND IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO REFIT IT, TO CLEAN OUT THE SLUDGE USE A PLASTIC SCOURING PAD LIKE THE ONES USED FOR CLEANING DISHES. IFTHE SEAL IS BLACK THIS CANNOT BE CLEANED IT IS A CHEMICAL REACTION TO DETERGENTS ETC BUT IS NOT HARMFUL TO ITEMS BEING WASHED HOPE THIS WILL HELP.
