Re: wd62 door hinge

All that has been said,has not rave-lance to the Simpson Colombo stove.
Nothing was broken.
After leaning on the stove door and cleaning the inside I noticed the door sagged sightly to the right, when I had finished.
When trying to even this up the hole door came out off it's seating.
The side that had sagged I noticed of of the little clip things was not in place and had not been in place for quite some time.
This clip was united with the bit above which I think is the locking arm and spring of the hole door.
It's these two small clips that stop me from closing the door.
(I think some how they have two purposes,one had been mentioned above the other I'm not sure).
Or once the door is seated in place on the stove are these clips things pushed of some how.
If so how?.
As these two clips are holding in the door hinges and the spring thing pull's against them?.

How to replace door seal miele novotonic 502

Hi Adrian,

Open machine door then turn power off. Remove 3 bolts on front of machine. Remove the soap draw and remove the 2 (or 3) screws.Separate the front of the door seal from the metal front of the machine and fold the door seal in towards the drum. Front of whole machine will now hinge open (there is a spring catch at the bottom where the pump filter is - so dont be scared to use a little force). Use a screwdriver to loosen and remove the metal wire clamp that sits around the door seal. Once off, door seal can be removed from the outer drum. Replace with new door in reverse order. Note that putting on the new door seal to the outer drum is a bit of an art and may take you a few attempts (so be patient but persistant), as you must make sure it is seated in position correctly. Good luck.

Can't find any instructions - can I reverse the door from the left side to the right side?

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The answer is YES you can reverse the door.

Here is the text of how to reverse the door:

The door assembly is reversible. It contains an inertial vibration damper comprised of a steel plate suspended with springs. The
damper is designed to tune out excessive vibrations generated by the machine during the spin cycle. Replacement inner door liners are
shipped with the vibration damper in place.
1. Open the door and remove the center screw of each hinge secured to the inner flange of the front panel in the door opening.
2. Grasp the door with both hands and lift the hinge area slightly. Draw the door assembly away from the machine. This will disengage the hinges from the slots in the
front shroud (Figure 5-1). If the hinges bind, press out on the plastic shroud near the hinge toward the cabinet.
Figure 5-1
1. Repeat the above steps and, remove the corresponding sheet metal spacers on the opposite side.
2. Remove the hinges from the door and relocate them to the other side of the door.
3. Remount the door into the new slots and secure with one screw into each hinge.
4. Mount the sheet metal spacers onto the side where the hinges were previously to cover the hinge slots in the front shroud.

That is the text without the whole service manual pictures.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I remove outer door hinge housing to replace with new one?

there are four screws holding the hinge on to the machine. two are visible in the hinge from the front but there are two inside the machine on the left side .turn off the power and water supplies drag the machine out from its place tilt machine back to allow a gap between the drum and cabinet then using a star shaped driver also called a Torx driver remove the two screw from the hinge and remove it.when refitting a magnetic driver is a great help to prevent dropping the screws into the machine a torch is advisable to see what you are doing I hope this helps

Replacing door hine on hotpoint washing machine

Its a ***** of a design. Mine is a Hotpoint Aquarius 1200 WD62. If you cant get the backing plate then get someone to tilt the machine right back and you can put your hand under to get it out. Then take the top off the machine(3 screws at the back). Then slide your soap tray right out,(put it to one side) you will then see 4 screws (Which hold in the other tray that holds the soap tray) take these out, you will then need to remove this white plastic tray to get your hand down the machine to reach the place were the backing plate goes. Once u have taken the screws out slide the soap tray holder to the left or right (can't remember) it will then come loose. You will then need to slide it back to lift it out the way (No need to take the pipes off the back of it) you may need to push the whole drum back at the same time you are pushing back the soap holder (Be gentle but it will come out). The holder should then lift up out the way, you can now get your hand down to hold the back plate on whilst you get a helper to affix the door. Make sure backing plate is on the right way, the screws will only go in one way (Check which way b4 u put it down into place). Then go backwards on all steps to put machine back together. This sounds like a load of **** but it worked for me and took about 15 minutes. Good luck!!
