SOURCE: how to replace door seal of Hotpoint WF860 washing machine

Hi, This is a very simple and straight forward job. First turn off the washing machine and remove the plug from the wall and earth the plug on the cabinet of the machine to remove any residule current in the machine. Remove the top of the machine with the screws at the rear of the machine. You can now look in the top? Open the door and take off outer door seal clip ( look and you will see how ) If it is a plastic clip it will have a small cut out in the side for a small screwdriver to be put in a pushed open. It could even be a small spring that is laying in side the small lip of the door seal. You could now attempt the removal of the door seal if you can see the inner clamp to get a long screwdriver onto the screw! If not now remove the soap drawer. Remove screws from around the soap drawer and slide the facia to the right and it should all be off.. Then you can remove the three screws that hold the front on along the top and the same along the bottom edge of the front panel. This then will allow you to take off the front panel and have better access to the door seal. Then once you have replaced the door seal you just need to replace as you took off..
Good luck................

We wish to replace the rubber doorseal on Hotpoint WMA42P. I can remove the door seal ring but cannot quite see how the drum seal is fixed. Is it the same system with a sprung ring? Martyn


The following video is of a Hotpoint WF door seal replacement which is the same as the WMA series except the fascia panel is slightly different, make sure you take a photo of the wiring connections before you remove the fascia so you know where they go when you replace it

How to change doorseal on zwf1221w


The procedure is as follows to replace the door seal ,but it is not easy. Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.
Take the top off the appliance and open the door.
Remove the plastic seal retainer and peel the seal off the front panel.
The seal to tub is held by a spring.
Just pull hard on the old seal and it will come off, you'll then find the spring in the groove of the seal.
 
Putting it back on is a nightmare.
Put some washing up liquid around the part of the seal that fits to the tub, this will help it slip on.
Tip the machine back about 30 to 40 degrees, this will give an inch or two more room for your hands.
Fit the seal to the tub, now the struggle begins. You have to fit the spring.
Fit this around the top, then make a wedge with kitchen towel and jam it in between the front weight and the seal, this will jam the spring in place at this point. You can now use two hands to put the seal on.
For getting parts you can get it from www.repairclinic.com
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Fit the retaining ring/spring into the groove in the seal and over the lip of the tub.

Fit the seal to the front panel and then fit the retaining ring into the seal.

Restore the power to the appliance and leak test it.

If you find you can't get the seal on.

Take out the screws revealed.

Take out the screws holding the door lock.

How do I replace the door seal to a Bosch Front loader washer Maxx Classic WAE18060AU?


To change the seal the easiest way is to take the front of the appliance off. Remove the kick plate at bottom and you will see some screws holding the front panel on remove these Then open door and remove the screws holding the door lock on and unlip the seal by releasing the clamp on the front. The front should now lift off, if it doesnt then pull out the soap drawer and behind that at the bottom of the drawer is a screw holding the front on remove this then push the front panel down then it will lift off You can now take the clamp holding the seal to the tub off. Fit the new seal, fit the clamp to the seal and tub. From here, rebuilding is the reverse of the strip down.

Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer


most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.
