How to replace bottom door seal


Difficult job. It may be possible to take the door halves apart and get to the screws that hold that bottom door seal to the door, but in some cases, it is necessary to remove the door completely and take it apart to be able to replace that bottom door seal. In any event, it's probably best to call a professional dishwasher repairman and let him do the job.

How do I repalace a door seal on the Kenmore refrigerator?


Remove the door makes the job easier. Using a table lay the door with door seal in the upright position. Pinch and pull the door seal over to one side to expose the door seal screws. Remove screws and gasket/ seal and install the new door seal in the reverse order.

Model wm0642hw front load. it leaks by door frame.rubber seal with clamp.only 2 years old. do i need to change the door frame outer part a151? thanks for your response in advance


Hi, If the door isnt loose or broken? Its more likely to be the rubber door seal if its leaking between the seal and the door glass. Check the edge of the seal where it touches against the glass for damage or ware if its ok clean any soap residue or bits from the glass.If it still leaks change the door seal.

Changing a door seal how do you replace the door seal ?


  1. Check the door seal size. Measure your door or doors, and take down the make and model number. Ads by Google
    '; for(i = 0; i '+ '' + google_ads[i].line1 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
    ' + '' + google_ads[i].visible_url + ''; } s += ""; document.write(s); return; } google_ad_channel = '+7733764704+1640266093+5860073694+9911500640+9665908481+9016233241+8388126455+8941458308+8509902424+8509902424+9683278076+7122150828' + xchannels + gchans; google_ad_client = "pub-9543332082073187"; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_ad_type = 'text'; google_feedback = 'on'; google_ad_region = "test"; google_ad_format = '250x250_as'; //--> google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
  2. 2Order a replacement door seal. It's easy to find them online. Make sure to check the model number for your refrigerator when you order it. When it arrives, hold the new door seal up against the old door seal to compare the size. The sizes are rarely incorrect, but it will save you the trouble of doing the job twice if you happened to receive the wrong door seal.
  3. 3Locate the screws. Lift the edges of the seal and find the screws underneath that are holding in the plastic liner and door seal. Often, the screws hold in a plastic liner, which in turn clamps the door seal to the door.
  4. 4Loosen the screws. Begin to loosen the screws that hold in the door seal. DO NOT take the screws all of the way out. It is unnecessary and will create more of a job for you. If at all possible, loosen only a few screws at a time, as you go.
  5. 5Remove the old seal. Once all of the screws are loose, the door seal should easily slide out from behind the plastic liner. Don't be too forceful when doing this step, since some plastic liners can be quite brittle and crumble if you are too rough. If the plastic is old, replace it.
  6. 6Insert the new seal. Begin slipping the small lip of the new door seal behind the plastic liner of the fridge. The best method is to start in the top corners and work your way around the door.
  7. 7Tighten the screws. Once the door seal is in a certain section, you can begin tightening the screws. Begin with the 8 corner screws, and then check the alignment of the door while closed. Also check that the seal is even and straight. If the door is twisted, you can easily manipulate the door to twist back into shape whilst the screws are loose. Then tighten the remaining screws.
  8. 8Apply powder. Use a bit of baby powder or talcum powder to prevent sticking. Rub some powder around the hinge side corners of the door seal, and where the seal slides. This will help to prevent the door seal from twisting as it meets the metal of the fridge. If this still doesn't prevent twisting, then wedge a screwdriver under the seal as you close the door and leave it shut for an hour.
  9. 9Check for gaps. Look for any gaps in the door seal, especially at the top on the opening side. These can form due to the door dropping or being out of alignment. One way to check is to turn on a flashlight and place it inside, then close the door and look for light.
  10. 10Fix any gaps in the door seal. Pack out the seal underneath the areas where the door seal has the gaps. This can be done with a small strip of weather stripping, as shown here, or a bit of tightly rolled up paper under the door seal. Alternatively, you can heat the door seal up with a hair dryer to fix the gaps. This softens the door seal and allows you to stretch it.
  11. 11Check the corners. If the application of powder hasn't prevented the door seal twisting, then wedge a screwdriver under the seal as you close the door and leave it shut for an hour. The door seal will then have enough time to mould into the correct shape.

Hole in door gasket of a Hotpoint 9901w washer dryer.


It is quite involved to change the seal, as requires a partial strip down, if the hole is not very big, then you can do a fairly good repair using a bicycle punture repair kit..
Remove the plastic clip that holds the clamp ring on the front of the washer seal at the top, remove the clamp ring, take note how it is fitted, then pull seal off front of washer, and fit patch on underside of seal, refit seal and clamp,and job done!!!!
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
