There is a spring that goes all the way around the door, just under the edge of the gasket. If you remove that spring starting at the bottom of the door, you should be able to remove the gasket for replacement

SOURCE: I have a frigidaire front load washer model

You can carefully pry off the seal with a knife or similar tool, focusing on the glue points which on mine were at the 2, 4, 8 and 10 o'clock positions. I then installed a door lock switch kit which came with glue/cement to glue it back on once you are done, but you could probably use any good general purpose contact cement because the seal wants to stay put on its own.

How to Replace rubber seal on front load washer


The rubber seal on your washer and similar front loading washers is a relatively easy repair. The seal is held onto the front washer panel and the fixed inside washer drum with separate spring-loaded rings that are reusable. So, don't throw them away! You need to remove the front ring from the front panel before you can remove the front panel. With the ring removed the gasket should be pushed into the washer; noting any drain holes, so that you can reinstall the new gasket in the same orientation. Once the outer ring is removed and the front panel is out of the way, you will have access to the ring holding the gasket to the drum. After the inside ring is removed, the gasket should pull off the fixed washer drum. You are now ready to install the new replacement gasket.

The amount of disassembly of the front of the washer is your option if it interferes with the installation. The door is usually heavy and it is useful to remove it from the front panel. Usually, a couple screws holds it in place. Removal of the front panel may also involve removal of the top of the washer and moving the control panel out of the way so that you can access the screws holding the front panel onto the frame of the washer. The locking latch may have to be temporarily removed but can be left in place if you simply push the front panel out of the way to have access to the inside gasket ring. It is useful to take pictures of each stage of the disassembly process to make sure your reinstall everything as it was.

Installation of the gasket starts with reattaching it to the fixed washer drum flange and then replacing the spring-loaded ring to hold it in place. Make sure the gasket orientation matches the original position. After the gasket is attached to the drum, you can now reinstall the front panel. If you unscrewed the latch mechanism when you took off the panel, now is the time to reinstall it as it can be manually held in place behind the gasket. The door can usually remain off the front panel until installation of the gasket onto the front panel is complete. Now bring the gasket forward and reinstall it on the flange of the front panel; secure it in place with the spring-loaded ring. Your gasket is now reinstalled. Simply reinstall the door and your repair is complete.

Tools needed include a blade screwdriver to help pry the rings off the gasket seal and one or two specialty screwdrivers (usually Torx or Philips) to remove the front panel.

Door seal


It's held in place by 2 metal rings, 1 just at the edge of the seal of the door opening and 1 at the edge of the seal to the outer drum. Unplug your machine then remove the 1 at the door opening, this will allow acces to the 1 at the drum. If you remove the machine lid it will give you a bit more light to work with and you may be able to access the ring easier to remove it.
Refitting is the reversal of removing it. Fit the drum one first and then the door side and make sure you know which way around the seal fits, usually has drain holes in the bottom section of the seal near the outer drum.

When moving a whirlpool washing machine (Model AWM 1000) a large thin metal ring (spring-loaded at one end) came out. Where does it go to refit it and how do I refit it? On the machine there's a groove...


It goes to the outer lip of the door opening where the groove is to secure the door gasket. It definitely serve such purpose, not for nothing.

Leak around bottom door gasket


No, you don't need to remove the door to replace the gasket. It is usually a pressure fit and will just push into the alloted space. Take notice of where the originial one begins and ends before removing it.

Replace LG washing machine seal


Hi

When you open the machine door, you will see a manufacturer's badge. Record the model number and call around to order the door seal from your local parts vendors. Have the replacement seal ready when you are changing the seal. If you remove the seal and then go to source it, then you might not remember how it was put on initially.

To replace door seal, First turn off machine and unplug from its power source.

Next remove top lid. Two screws in the back of the top lid and you can slide the lid back and up to remove. See if you have a clear view of the door seal from above the machine and see how it is joined to the drum mouth. There would be a metal ring holding it in place. Locate the screw which tightens it and unscrew it to loosen the ring.

Next the wire ring which you have already seen on the front of the seal needs to be removed. These are normally spring loaded. Feel around the ring until you get to the spring tensioner. With a flat screw driver, stretch the spring to pull the ring out from around the seal.

Now observe how the door seal is clipped around the front panel of the machine. The seal has a groove which fits snug agains the rim of the front panel. You can now remove the seal by pulling around the edge.

Now go back to the top of the machine and do a similar thing to remove the seal from around the drum. Make sure you observe how it had fitted on originally, and also observe if there are any differences between the top and bottom of the seal where it sits on the door. There normally is a difference.

When replacing the seal in the reverse manner, make sure you fit the seal correctly around the lips of the drum and the front panel. make sure you also correctly tighten and refit the rings to hold the seal in place.

Once you have finished run a couple of quick cycles without cloths, to make sure there are no leaks and that the seal is fitted properly.

Good luck.

How do I change the door seal on a gibson UR freezer?


The most important thing is to make sure the new seal is warmed up to room temperature so it is soft and workable. Since the seal on mine is attached to the top door there is nothing to gain by leaving the door attached. Working upside down would leave the door open longer than just taking it off.

If you still have food in the freezer just put blankets over the top until the door is back on. If you have screws holding the seal it will go much easier. Mine has plastic pins that break easily pulling them out.

Get the edges as straight as possible to avoid leaks.

Rubber gasket


Hi,

Feel around the seal, in the groove behind the seal face. You'll find a spring at the bottom. With a small screwdriver, lever the spring over the seal face. Work the steel ring off. Fold the seal inside the washer. Unplug the washer, Remove the door, and set aside. Locate your panel screws and remove the front, exposing the drum and basket. There are usually additional screws under the dispenser trays too. Disconnect the door lock wires. Locate the other spring/ring assembly on the outer drum, and remove. Orient your new seal properly and reassemble. The only difference on the reassembly is that, when you are putting the rings back on, start 180 degrees from the spring, and work the ring back on until you get to the spring. Carefully lever the spring back over the seal face, being careful not to damage your new seal.
Best regards, --W/D--

Hello, my axxis washer gets mold build up on the rubber gasket at the door. i have ordered a new one but do not feel the need to pay $200.00 for the install. can i get instructions to install on my own. i...


Um...have fun. I have replaced two of them.

the way to keep the mold from growing in the future is to leave the door open so that you don't create that closed moist environment.

About the easist way to replace/change is to remove the front of the washer (I have completed w/o doing that but took a bit longer).

Make sure you keep an eye on how the old one comes off as some of them have drain pipes connected.

To remove:
There is a metal ring with a spring attached, simply streatch spring a bit at bottom of door and it should come right off. Do the same for the inside seal, that spring is at the top.

To install:

put the metal ring inside the grove of the gasket, then align gasket on the front. Pick an edge to start working around as you get closer to the top (I pick the lower right hand side to start working around. Make sure that your spring part of the metal ring is at the top where the one you replace was at.) once you get to a point you need to stretch the spring, this is where I use an 90 degree or more pick tool to get into the end of the spring. You need to make sure that you have the seal tight. Start pulling on the spring to stretching it so that can put the rest on. (You need to keep tension on the gasket so that the metal ring does not slide.)

Now to the front.

Just make sure that the spring part is at the bottom. When you took the otherone off, it was at the bottom. It has to go there as there is a groove. Once you get the metal part around the gasket push a bit on the spring and make sure it is in that goove.

To test, open and close your washer door a couple times. At first gently.

Hope this helps as they are a pain in the rear.

Also, here is a nice parts place for all your Bosch parts. www.repairclinic.com

The gasket was only about $75 to my door.

Rubber seal removal


There is a spring at the bottom center of the door gasket. Stretch that out and a wire will come off from around the gasket you can then pull the gasket off and reach in. Be sure you get the gasket back on all the way and the wire right or it will leak. Good luck.

Thank you gittos73.

It's as gittos says. When you open the door and look inside, at the very top of the door is a white square. This holds the metal clip. If you push the little white dot in the middle of this clamp gently, it gives way and you will see the round metal clip that goes all the way round the door rubber (gasket). Remove this and you can put your fingers round the gasket and pull it toward you.

Then take the lid off the machine and you will see a 6mm nut with a spring behind it and a wire clip similar to the front one, going round the gasket where it attaches to the drum. This has a crosspoint (phillips type) head on it and you can get a small screwdriver into it and undo it all the way. Then slide the gasket off and it will come away.

Fitting it is the reverse but it is a little bit tricky as you have to get the gasket behind the lip to make the seal. Take your time and they will both go round properly.
