It is quite involved to change the seal, as requires a partial strip down, if the hole is not very big, then you can do a fairly good repair using a bicycle punture repair kit..
Remove the plastic clip that holds the clamp ring on the front of the washer seal at the top, remove the clamp ring, take note how it is fitted, then pull seal off front of washer, and fit patch on underside of seal, refit seal and clamp,and job done!!!!
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Replacing door gasket


Most door gaskets are available online, most recommended taking drum out to replace, but task can easily be done by removing rubber from hole in machine (end of a spoon helps) then push drum back through the hole and you will see a large clip on rubber to the drum, unscrew clip and pull out rubber, reverse to replace. Good luck.

Leaking gasket


Need to replace your boot seal. If you do not what to go to that expense, if the hole is small you can use silicon sealer to patch the hole and let it set for at least 24 hours.

Whole in seal and a smell


Is the hole, or a tear? If its a hole, that's the normal hole to get the excess water out of the door gasket. If there is a tear, you'll need to replace the door gasket. The smell you get, is due to not leaving the door open, you'll need to leave this, and the dispencer open all the time, when your not washing. The unit needs to vent, in order not to have build-up of mildew/mold.

Hotpoint aqurious leaking at front underneath,concrete block wet at front towards door,alot of water coming out,any ideas thanks.david


Carefully check the door seal for any sign of a hole or tear in the seal.
Or it could be leaking from the drum front or the drum front seal, this is another seal , not the door seal., you cannot see this without removing the front panel.

There is water leaking from the bottom of my machine. its not the drain pipe but can't find my manual to see where the filter is. could that be the problem many thanks Sue


Unlikely to be filter leaking.
Carefully check the door seal for a split or hole in it, it is easy to miss a hole, so examine it closely.
The filter is located inside the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Hope this helps.
