Lost diamond in Rubber seal of front loader

Help! My ring got caught in the rubber seal and ripped the diamond out. I could see it stuck but when I tried to retrieve it I heard a metallic sound and it drop into the drain?? It was not in the filter at the bottom and we flushed it with a hose but no diamond. We then ran a rinse cycle and checked filter again. No go. Running a cotton cycle now to see if more water will help. Wondering where it would go once it drops between the rubber seal and the barrel and can we check ourselves or do we need a Miele technician. Thanks :)

Here is the part number for the seal 6816000 As far as the trick, depending on your level of skill, there will be a tab on the seal itself and that should be positioned at 12 o'clock. You press the seal firmly onto the drum until you hear a pop. The clamping ring which holds the seal on is 8 mm bulb which reusable. The seal has to be stretch over the outer metal casing.

We have a Frigidaire "Affinity" front loader it is leaving a puddle on the floor when we use it. I assume the rubber ring is bad has anyone changed it themselves? Is it a hard fix?


Are you sure it's the door seal? If it is they are normally just held in place with 2 metal rings, 1 at the edge of the seal at the door opening and one at the outer drum. Once you remove the front ring from the door opening you can gain access to the one at the drum. Removing the lid of the machine will also help and give you a bit more light.
Anyone with a bit of DIY know how should be able to replace it, an hour tops for a beginner.

I would say that the rubber may have gone into the system, and is probably clogging up the water outlet hose, and or the Pump. This is a bit of a "Fix' it will require the taking off of the motor and Hoses, connected to see where that bit of rubber is.http://www.letsfixit.co.uk/html/washing_machine_faq.html

The rubber seal came off of the inside during the spin cycle - behind door against the tub -- and a wire ring came out. I put the rubber seal back on but have no idea where the wire ring would go? Is this...


The wire ring is the seal retaining spring, it fits in a groove at the rear of the door seal.
Double the seal back in the drum, and fit the spring around the seal at the rear of same, it fits inside a groove, it is difficult, so persist and be patient.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.
