The problem has been caused by doing too many low temperature washes, this has allowed the bacteria to build up on the seal.
The only long term solutioin is to fit a new door seal, and do more high temp washes, at least once a month, do a 90 degree wash or hotter with powder in, but no clothes.
This is called a maintenance wash, and helps stop build up of bacteria, and keeps door seal clean.
Please rate my solution.
this is no easy job and you will need a copy of the work-shop manual; sometimes they can be downloaded of the internet. There are no real specialist tools, but im telling you now there will be a lot of very red knuckles .good luck.adrian
Fantastic walk-through, thank you! These instructions also work for the Indesit WIA111
Getting the seal back on is tricky - if you feel you have to really force in back on (like a tyre on a bike) then you are probably doing it wrong.
I found once I had the knack it was best to stasrt again in the least accessible place
Hi to replace the seal take off the metal ring with a small screwdriver at the spring on the front of the machine than take off the seal then take the top off the machine and locate the screw on the metal ring undo a bit then take off seal replace and put back the new seal in reverse order as I have written
it maybe door electric lock easy to fit,take door seal at the front ONLY,take off the two screws holding on lock,have new one in hand, lock I mean,copy the way the three wires are on the old one,swop for the new one.bye Ire.
