Where can I buy dedicated seals for my shower screen?

The seal that is closest to the wall fitting (and therefore the most difficult to remove for cleaning purposes) has begun to seep water over the bath edge and thus on to the bathroom carpet. The seals appear to have been designed specifically for this model as they are precut to size and fit the glass snugly on all four sides (not just the two long ones). The top elevation is rather like looking down on to an elongated box. Nobody seems to market such an item. Please help!

SOURCE: how to replace door seal of Hotpoint WF860 washing machine

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................

You mean you have a door gasket. A good, step-by-step article on this pesky concept of "panel-screw" gasket installation is found on this handy page:

SOURCE: My Bosch Dishwasher doesn't clean

Check the following to address this issue--


1. No water
Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

2. Not enough water
If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

3. Clogged spay arms
There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

4. Water temperature is too low
To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

5. Not enough soap
If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

6. Smoky film on dishes and glasses
This problem occurs due to excessive calcium build up inside the dishwasher. Try cleaning you dishwasher using a dishwasher cleaner.

You will probably find, that the unit is 'Obselete'
And replacement parts, are not being produced anymore.
Why not change the broken piece, & do some fancy tiling around it.
I recently tiled around a circular mirror in bathroom, and actually it almost looks like a window.
As long as your 'finishing' is up to scratch.
Good luck with that, & don't forget to rate:)

The inner seal how do I remove it. As you can see I replaced the outer already.


It is many years since I saw a washing machine like that.

I guess you took the pic with a phone or old camera. I copied it and zoomed it to full-screen but it lost definition before I could see the detail clearly so I can't answer with any great authority.

It is usual practice to drive a seal into it's housing with the spring-loaded lip away from you and facing the oil supply but this general rule is not true in every case. There are a few seals that are fitted back-to-front and some special double-ended seals that are very difficult to fit.

Due to the poor picture I am only guessing that inner seal is fitted the conventional way around and from the direction of the outside. Removing the old seal therefore would be a matter of using a propriety oil seal remover, knocking it through from inside the housing or possibly using a long specially shaped drift from the other side if it is open. Failing that I would use a hook and a slide hammer or a long hook, a pair of grips and a short lever.

Fitting the new seal at such a depth of housing without damage is likely to be difficult without a mandrill.

Em6910 collar replace


The whole collar or do you just mean the blue silicone seal?

You can buy the blue seal on eBay. Simply undo the Philips screw in the centre of the 'shower' in the group head, take out the two shower screens and the blue seal will be fairly easy to remove.

I bought a maax shower base. i am going to intall a cement board on the wall, water proof it and then tile over it. The shower base has a flange that is 1/4'' thick. do i install the cement board on top of...


There are two ways that I would do it depending on the width of the ledge on top of shower base. If you have enouch room I would shim studs with strips of material thick enough to bring the surface out even with flange on shower base. Then I would put cement board(wonder board) on wall and over shower flange to set on top of shower base. Finish seams on wall board per manufacturers directions,Let seam filler dry then seal with thompsons water seal or equivalent sealer. Let that dry then tile on that grouting and sealing with quality caulk at joint between shower base and tile.
If ledge on shower base is not wide enough then I would place cement board directly to studs then use filler strips on face of shower base flange to bring two surfaces flush. Water seal let dry and tile again coming down over top of shower. Grout and caulk to finish. P.S. I would use a siliconized latex emulsifier to mix in with grout. It gives a better ware proof seal. Hope this helps you. Good luck and thank you.

If you are taking about then neck of the shower head this is what you must do. its no need to turn the water off to the house or to the bathroom first you will need a pair of channel locks and some Teflon tape. first remove the shower head if you dont want to scar the nut on the shower head place cloth between the pliers and the fitting, once removed (very important) turn the channel locks upside down stick one side of the blue handle up in the neck of the shower and rotate to your left to loosen if you are having a leak leak there it should already be semi loose, once removed wrap the threads with the Teflon tape and re-insert making sure it is tight, then wrap the the outer end of the neck with Teflon tape and place the head back on.The reason it leaked is because the plumber who installed it did not tighten it up completly because he wanted it to look straight coming out of the wall and the additional water pressure causes it to leak wheras the hot water causes it to expand and seal

For most front-loaders:
Plug off the wall mains. Remove the plastic clamp holding the seal to cabinet & peel off the cabinet. Push downwards on the seal close to the tub & the seal will come off - it's just held by a spring on the periphery.
Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid. 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. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.
(There is no glue anywhere, only clamps,etc)

Installation Rules?


There are four golden rules for installing a shower enclosure. The first golden rule is to make sure that the shower tray is level. If it is not, then problems will occur throughout the rest of the installation. Use a good quality spirit level and where possible install a tray that has adjustable legs. There are often problems associated with tiling over upstands as some are thick and difficult to set into the wall. The second golden rule is to install a tray that has a slim tiling up stand which is vertical and an integral part of the tray: This will make the installation easier, quicker and ensure it is totally watertight. Before installing the shower enclosure the third golden rule must be followed. A silicone sealer needs to be applied all the way around the join where the tiles meet the tray: This must be sealed first, to ensure there is no chance of water getting behind the wall channels and then into the walls. This is one of the biggest problems associated with shower installations but is easily solved if the silicon sealer is applied before the enclosure is fitted. The final golden rule is to fit the enclosure to the tiled surface and not on to a plastered wall, tiling up to it afterwards. Having installed the enclosure it is essential to use the same high quality silicone sealer around the outside of the enclosure. Sealing on the inside will cause leaking- not prevent it.
