When you open the door you find a this wire clamp round the edge of the door seal, this just comes off with little force, this has to go back on obviously so don't bend it, the door seal just folds back on itself, the clamp on the drum end is often a large thin spring, and that also just pulls off, the seal then also comes away with a little pull, the new seal is fitted with the groove either side of the drum lip, then the spring is put back, take note how all is removed before working on it? the front of the seal is fitted then the wire, close the door to check a tight but easy fit, check for any leaks and correct fitting before leaving machine unattended any time, sound worse that what it actually is, if i have helped rate me,

How to put the rubber gasket/seal back on door


If you are referring to the door bellow (gray rubber seal), the following link explains step by step how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

If you require replacement parts, you can purchase them from any of the following websites:

appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites are reputable and offer competitive prices, so shop and compare. The first three sites on the list include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

If the bellow has simply come loose and is still intact with no rips or tears, skip down to step 12 in the link I provided.

NOTE: Overloading the washer can cause items to get caught in the bellow and pull it loose, or cause premature wear.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Bought new rubber seal for whirlpool but no instructions how to fit.has 2 wire rings front and back of seal so how do you fit them around the new seal. do you work from the back of rubber seal first ie...


this is why we are paid to do the tricky stuff. Ok, remove the lid then open the door. look for the front pring loaded wire then remove. Pull front of seal off ridge then bend it back into the tub so it allows you to work easier. you will now see a second large ring holding the other end of the seat to the tub. remove it then pull the faulty seal out. Follow same proceedure putting it back. careful not to tear boot as it is silicon.

Rubber door seal replacement on my Front Load Washer


OPEN THE DOOR
THERE IS A WIRE AND SPRING CLAMP AROUND THE SEAL, PULL BACK THE SEAL WITH YOUR FINGERS AND YOU WILL SEE IT
TAKE OFF THE CLAMP
FOLD THE SEAL BACK INTO THE DRUM
YOU WILL SEE ( OR FEEL ) A CLAMP AROUND THE SEAL ON THE DRUM
SLACKEN OFF THE SCREW HOLDING IT UNTIL YOU CAN PULL OFF THE SEAL.
FIT A NEW ONE IN REVERSE ORDER.

HINT- WIPING WITH LIQUID DETERGENT WILL MAKE IT EASIER TO FIT THE NEW SEAL.
HINT2 - YOU MAY NEED 4 PAIR OF HANDS TO FIT THE SPRING CLAMP

Bosch Axiss washer front door seal replacement


Remove the top of the machine(screws are at the back).
Look down the side of the front door on the inside of the machine.
You will see a metal wire band holding the rubber on.
You usually only need a screwdriver to loosen the screw which holds it tight.
Try it out and get back to me if you get problems
good luck

Rubber door seal rip...


The rubber door boot (bellow) commonly wears out on these front loaders. A replacement will run you about $80 just for the bellow. Labor could run as high as $180 if you decide to hire someone to replace it for you. If you wish to perform the repairs yourself, post back with your intentions and I can provide you with step-by-step instructions on how to replace it. It is labor intensive as you will have to remove the entire washer front in order to do the job right. It IS possible, however, if you wish to pursue a repair option on your own. Just let me know.

PS I can also provide you with the part number if you reply with your washer model number (found along the door opening).
