Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and 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.
2 After 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.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,

How do I replace the door seal on my ZWF1421W washing machine


Unplug the machine first! Open the door and look around th edge of the seal. You will see a plastic clip, where the two ends engage (like crocodile teeth), prise it out toward you with a flatbladed screwdriver. Unpeel the seal frm around the door. Hold the top of the seal inside where it is attached to the drum and lift it slightly, then just pull it off. You will see it is held on with a big circular spring. Getting the new seal on is a pain. It must lip onto the plastic outer drum and will take patience to feed it on, not to say sore fingers! Once on, fold it intowards the drum and then you have to stretch the spring back onto the seal...more sore fingers. Maybe someone can hold it while you feed it aound (make sure also you have fitted the seal the right way up!). Finally, attach the outer lip onto the lip of the machine and reattach the outer plastic clip. Good luck!!!!!!!!

Unscrew filter body and gently, using a pair of mole grips, wiggle and pull the filter body.
If this doesnt work the best option is to replace the whole filter assembly. You do not need a new pump though!!.
PS Cleaning the filter on a regular basis will help prevent this!!!!!
