SOURCE: metal ring aroound rubber seal fell off.

Start with the spring at the bottom, work the retainer around until the seal starts to pull away from the washer. Now grip the loop that the spring attaches to on the side that isn't in place and open the retainer. Push the retainer in place and release the spring.

Hi, I'm not familiar with your particular model, but there is most likely a very similar type of clamp holding the back end of the seal to the static part of the drum. It is most unlikely that you will need to take off the front cover as on most machines only the back and top are removable. You might need to unfold the rubber to get to see the wire which is holding it on. If it is the type of clamp with a screw-tightening device, it might be rusted up and a new one might be called for.

If the old seal is damaged there is nothing to be lost by cutting away some of it with scissors so you can see better what you are doing.

When you get to the stage of putting the new seal on, try lubricating it with a bit of washing up liquid or soap to allow it to slip properly onto the casing and rum, and try to avoid tightening up with a twist in it - the soap should help. Remember to put the new one on in the reverse order to the way you got the old one off.
Hope this helps you a bit more. D

My Hoover vhv680c tumble dryer is working but does not get hot I have changed the element but still no good

There are other possibilities. Dryers have one or more temperature sensors that will open circuit the heater element if they get too hot. If the sensor goes bad you get no heat. These are usually located near the end of the heater element. Find the wiring diagram and you will see them. With the dryer unplugged you should be able to measure almost no resistance across their terminals. Another possibillity is in the timer. The contacts inside of it could be bad. This is likely if you get heat on some cycles and not others.

WD1000 Cnn anyone tell me the color of the wires location on the thermostat, the small thermostat next to the large one anf the round preheat unit near by. THANKS

If I understand your question correctly . . .
Here are the wire colors connecting to the heater enclosure:
From the front, on the right side of the heater assembly (wrapped in shiny foil): First, the "working thermostat" (which cycles heat on and off to maintain 155 deg) - red on bottom, gray on top. That gray wire goes over to the right, connecting to either side of little round "overtemp - klixon" sensor, at a double connector (two gray wires). A brown wire goes to other side of klixon sensor.
At rear of heater assy is another klixon sensor and the ends of the heating element itself From L to R: Short black "jumper" wire goes from left connector (Klixon) over to far right connector (on heating element). Long black wire goes 2nd to L, and long red wire goes 2nd to R (again on heater).

Pump repair

Instructions1 Unplug the electrical cord of the washing machine from the electrical outlet before attempting to repair the water pump.
2 Turn the water supply off at the shut-off valves behind the washing machine by hand.
3 Press in on the end caps of the washer while pulling forward to remove the caps from the control console and locate the screws in the front of the console on each end.
4 Unfasten the screws on the control console with a screwdriver and flip the console back so that it rests on the rear hinges.
5 Unplug the lid switch connector from the top of the dryer near the back, lifting the plug off the metal prongs by hand. Use a screwdriver to pry up the metal clips that are holding the top on the dryer.
6 Lift the top lid off the washer base, set the top out of the way, and locate the water pump at the bottom of the cabinet on the motor shaft.
7 Slide the metal clips off the top of the water pump with a screwdriver and remove the pump from the motor shaft.
8 Place a plastic container underneath the water pump to catch any water from the pump and detach the hoses, unfastening the clamps with a screwdriver.
9 Remove the hoses from the pump, allowing the excess water to drain into the plastic container, and remove the pump from the washing machine.
10 Attach the hoses to the new water pump, securing the clamps with a screwdriver. Place the new pump on the motor shaft, sliding the metal clips back over the pump.
11 Take the plastic container out of the washer cabinet, disposing of the water. Place the top lid of the washer back over the cabinet, securing it with the metal clips on the top.
12 Plug the lid switch connector back into the top of the washer near the back, attaching the connector by hand. Flip the control console back down over the washer, securing the console with screws on the ends.
13 Fasten the end caps back over the control console by hand and turn the water supply back on at the shut-off valves.
14 Plug the electrical cord of the washer into the electrical outlet.

Hoover nextra 5+5 washer dryer HNWF 3135 heating broken

it is seperate heaters for wash and dry and unlikely to be connected with blocked filter tho you should check filter regularly. take top off. on manifold running across top you will see stats. one of these at least is resettable by presssing a small knob in middle and if it has gone you will hear a slight click. then check dryer manifole for build up of lint as pooir air flow can cause stat to pop. for wash heating, start by checking continuity of the wash heater located at the bottom of the tub
