I am recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, the rear door seal clamp is generally nowadays a large thin spring that is slightly hidden by the concrete weights at the front of the drum, if thats the case the door seal will just come off with a good firm pull round the drum edge, fitting as a reverse of removal, place the door seal in the groove so it fits like it should, then stretch the spring and fit that into the outer groove round the lip of the door seal at the drum end, once that is done fit the seal on the front panel lip, then replace that clamp, check all is fitted securely before running machine its one of those jobs that hard to explain how to do it, hope i have helped a bit, its easier to work through the front door opening than from above? if i have please rate me thank you

The door seal seals between the glass door and the drum, so the inner clip is attached to the drum. If you have the lid off you should be able to see it but it may be hidden under the rubber edge of the seal itself. Run your fingers from the edge of the seal where it attaches to the glass door inwards towards the drum and you should feel the metal clip. It will be a very big hose clip style.

How to replace door seal on washing machine Bosch Advantixx ?


How to Replace the Door Seal on a Washing Machine - Bosch
One of the most common faults of a leaking washing machine is a faulty seal. Thankfully replacing such a component of your washing machine is not a difficult task.
In the above video, with the help of our experienced team, we explain how to replace the washing machine door seal, and below we've compiled a simple step-by-step guide which takes you through every point covered in our video.
Step 1: To remove the door seal on any make and model of washing machine, you'll need to remove the entire front panel, followed by the soap dispenser and fascia.
Removing the panel and fascia is easy to do, once you've undone the screws holding it in place, whilst the soap dispenser should just clip out of place.
Step 2: With these components removed, clip away the kick plate, put the drain hose to one side before removing the retaining clip which holds the door seal against the front of the machine. Once the clip has been removed just push the seal inside.
Step 3: Undo the four remaining screws holding the front of the machine on, before pulling the front of the machine and the door away from the machine.
Once the front of the machine is off, you should be able to see the spring retaining band going all the way around thedrum. This should be easy to pull off, enabling you to peal the whole old seal away; once you've removed the old seal this can be thrown away, although it is advisable to keep the retaining band, as this can be reused with the new seal.
Step 4: You'll now be ready to attach the new seal, when doing so make sure that the drain holes are positioned at six o'clock; once you've done this it is just a case of working the new seal onto the drum.
With the seal worked onto the drum, put the retaining spring into its little ridge, before giving the seal one final check.
Step 5: Reattach all the parts back to your washing machine, attaching the door seal to the front of the machine ensuring that it goes over the lip, before attaching the retaining band on the bottom and sides.
There you have it, a step-by-step guide to replacing the door seal on a washing machine, helping it to perform to its optimum level.

F16 error code on washing machine


The "F16" on a Bosch indicates the door is open / unlocked. If it's happening during a wash it would suggest either a faulty door lock, faulty wiring or worse, a faulty main control board.

How do I replace my boot gasket on my Bosch Nexxt washer?


Here is how you do it. 1st remove the door & hinge, 2nd remove the covers on the screw where the door sits that holds down the control panel. 3rd remove two screws holding the door latch in place. Remove the spring & wire holding the boot on and pull the boot loose from the plastic holder Remove the plastic boot holder. You will now see the boot where it attaches to the tub. There is a spring and wire that holds that on. At the top there is a tab on the seal, grab it and pull towards you. The boot will come off. To reassemble I remove the counter weights(concrete weights) from the tub and put the boot firmly into the slot on the tub. Now reinstall the rear spring. Be sure to also reinstall the counter weights if removed and torque them tight around 25 to 30 foot pounds. Reassemble the front panel and put the spring retainer back on. Tools needed T20 torx driver, 13mm wrench, and needle nose plyers.

The top of the rubber door seal has come away from the wire that holds it in how can I put it back


first remove the wire retainer (usually has a spring attached) then fold the rubber lip of the door seal back over the metal lip on the front of the machine when correclly positioned refit the retainer by starting at the recess where the spring sits and stetching it all around the seal making sure that it is sat in the groove where it fits, it is fairly easy to replacestarting from the spring and following around clockwise making sure that it is seated right as you reach the other end of the spring the spring will stretch allowing you to finish tucking the wire in and the spring should then tuck in to the recessed part of the seal
