Question about Miele W865 Front Load Washer
Hi - how do I change the door seal on a Miele W865. The dealer say's it's quite easy, all I have to do is to open the front panel (3 srews) and the front of the machine will swing forward.
I can't find the screws - is he talking rubbish !
Any help would be appreciated
No he is right, there are 3 bolts around the seal, remove/unscrew them, pull front cover and the door will swing open.
loosen the wired coupling around the seal that holds in place and pull seal off.
Now u are ready to put your new seal back on. These is the hardest part.

Normally they're held on with 2 wire rings, 1 at the edge of the seal at the door opening and the other on the edge of the outer drum. Unplug your machine and remove the lid, this will help access and give you more light to work with. Remove the ring at the door opening first and pull seal from the lip. Access can now be made for the one at the drum. Do the same for the one on the drum.
When putting in new one reverse the procedure and start at the drum, make sure you have the seal the right way around, normally holes in bottom of seal for drainage. Thread the seal over the lip and then put ring on. Same process for the front. Put lid on and plug machine in and test for leaks.
