examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a
flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a
tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
removing the outer
clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and
establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may
be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like
very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the

up. Others have a drain holes.

Sometimes when the load get tangled during the cycle and you try to pull all the load out in one go, you can dislodge the seal and retaining spring. Remove the wire around the door seal, repositioned the seal around the edge of front panel porthole. There is a folded metal edge around the metal frame and the grey rubber gasket lips over this, once in position, offer up the metal retaining band and use a pair of long nosed pliers to stretch the spring so you can get it to sit around the seal. Sorry this a little long winded but very difficult to articulate properly, so I hope you get the gist. Cheers
There is a metal retainer with a spring on the outside of the door around the seal remove that and re-form the seal around to door panel and secure with retaining spring. If this doesn't help you will have to replace the seal.
the door seal or do you mean the rubber boot that goes from outter tub to the outer frame simply seat the seal all the way around into the groved slot on the rubber boot and then attach the top of the retaining ring first and slide the left side on while holding the corner of the right side move your screwdriver from the top left furthest point in a couter clockwise direction until the metal retaining ring is half seated you can see down the bottom there is a small spring that allows the tension on the other side you would hold with a finger the last point that you seated the retaining ring and start on the top right side with your flat screwdriver and work your way clock wise until you came to the are with the spring then just put your screwdriver in the area where the spring is located and pry towards you walla this piece is also called door bellows to others as well it is termed as a rubber boot where I am currently if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick
p.s tomatoes dont grow particulary well with washer machine on top on the other hand a type of berry would have no problem at all :)
Take a flat bladed screwdriver or similar tool then insert it to where the retainer spring connects to the wire hoop at the bottom of the door seal and pull the retainer forward and then off the perimeter of the boot. You may also use a pair of needle-nose pliers to grasp and pull the assembly at the location shown below.
Reinstall the spring and wire hoop assembly by starting at the top then working simultaneously around on both sides going to the bottom of the door seal
Not likely that you have a hinge problem, but it can happen, especially if water has been dribbling down the back side of the front panel from the dispenser area, getting on the hinge, and causing it to bind up. Replacing the hinge is a pain because the screws are put in with thread lock, requiring heating or even drilling in some cases. If you have water dripping down the front of the machine from the door, the most common reason is that there is some lint or hair on the bottom side of the glass door, preventing a complete seal to the gray rubber gasket. Generally, just cleaning off the bottom of the glass door will fix it. If that does not do it, you can try moving the spring clamp (which holds the front of the gray tub seal) from the bottom (6 O'clock position) to the hinge area (9 O'clock position) Sometimes, the leak is caused because someone pushed the washer into place by placing their hands just below the door and actually deformed the metal front panel inward, preventing a seal between the door glass and the gray tub seal. If that is the case, it may be corrected by removing the spring retaining clamp, taking the front of the gray tub seal off, pulling outward a bit on the metal panel at the bottom of the door openings, and replacing the seal and retaining band again.
The following worked on my zbf360x built in Zanussi. First you need to remove the oven door. To do this open the door half way. On each hinge there are two small metal flaps. Lift both of these. Now with the door still half open pull hard on the door. You will find the hinges spring and if you release the pull now it will just spring back. When the hinges spring give an extra hard pull on one side and then the other each hinge should pop out. Once you have the door off just remove the small screws on the bottom of the door to allow it to hinge open and clean the inside glass.
This is quite tricky, first take off the retaining ring on the front door port, remove the seal from this rim. The back of the seal is held by a spring band. the best way to remove it is to get a good grip on the seal at the top then lift and pull (thats the easy bit), to put the new one on i always lubricate the recess on the seal with washing-up liquid and feed the seal on from the bottom with one hand whilst following it around with the other hand to stop it coming off. Once it is fully on it can then be rotated easily into the correct position. Getting the spring back on will require an extra pair of hands for obvious reasons.
Good luck with it and keep the swear box handy lol.
1. Remove door (2 screws). 2. remove top (2 screws at back, sharp slap to front to dislodge). 3. Remove 2 screws holding powder dispenser to inlet valve. 4. Remove 2 screws at front corners securing fascia. 5. Remove fascia and powder dispenser as a unit - note plastic locating pegs on underside and plastic clips locating bottom onto front panel. Take care not to drop one of the rubber seals from valve/powder dispenser joint. Do not disconnect the wiring, just lay the complete assembly on top of the machine. 6. At some point, you will need to release the retaining wire securing the seal to the front panel. This is a thin spring loaded wire. Look after it, you will need it again. 7. Remove two screws at front securing front panel. 8. Remove kick panel - this allows access to two more screws securing bottom of front panel - take these out as well. 9. unclip the wire connector to the door switch. The front panel may now be lifted from its plastic retainers. 10. The second wire clip can now be removed. The clever clip will need to be released to allow refitting. 11. Thoroughly clean and disinfect the seating for the new seal - you don't want the same gunk growing into the new one straight away. 12. On the drum, you will notice a protruding moulding at about 5 o'clock. There is a matching flange on the seal to help you locate it accurately - start here and fit the seal. 13. Fit the wire retainer - you will need a good pair of long-nose pliers to retension the wire. 14. Reassemble the machine in the reverse order - take care not to mix up the screws! remember to fit the seal to the front panel before refitting the door. Do not release the spring from the wire, carefully stretch it into place.
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.
