SOURCE: Hotpoint Door Seal WMA64

I have reproduced the details of my article: http://www.fixya.com/support/t1543617-door_seal
here. I hope this will give you the information you need.
Rule 1: BEFORE YOU START Turn off the mains, unplug at the wall, turn off the water supply.

The gasket is held in place on the drum by a large sprung wire ring with a screw tighten/release. To access this (Depending on the model), you will either have to go in from the top or the bottom of the machine. Usually the top.

Pull the machine out, go to the back and unscrew, usually 2 screws that hold the "Work top surface" top on the machine at the back. There are usually clips at the front of the top, so by lifting the rear clear and either pulling the top back, or giving it a tap forward, depending on the design, the top should now lift off.

You should now be able to look down at the drum and you should clearly see the rubber gasket fitted over the edge of the drum with the clip in place. Locate the screw in tensioner and undo it until it is possible to slip it forward and clear of the drum. You should now be able to simply pull the gasket away from the drum. Most machines rely on the door being closed to hold the gasket in place where it meets the chassis, it should just pull off if the door is open, but while you are lookiing inside, just check anyway. The assembly is simply a reverse of what is described above.

Stuff to consider: You may not be able to see the screw clip from the top, if so, tip the machine back and look from underneath. If you have to do this: Never tip the machine all the way onto its back, you may cause a water leak inside the machine. ALWAYS tip BACKWARDS, so the control panel for the machine is pointing up to avoid water getting to the control panel. I would recommend putting a chair behind the machine as you tip it, so the top back of the machine comes to rest on the seat and the machine is at about 45 degrees. this will give you access to underneath without a leak and make is a lot easier to tip it back on to its feet again afterwards.

You may also have a black well. If you are not using city water wells often have to be bleached out. Have your water tested.

It's a push fit seal. Carefully remove the old one and for help, smear the new seal where it fits the machine and just push it into place securely.

SOURCE: How to change door seal on hotpoint FEW12 washing machine

For most front-loaders:
Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid. Starting at the top, press the seal so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal. Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange. When slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on. The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal. This is quite difficult and you may need another pair of hands. Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet - this is easy and fit the plastic clamping ring.
Test for leaks before using. Use rinse to test as the water level is higher.

(There is no glue anywhere, only clamps,etc)

Pl rate me nice for the free help!

The water level on the Hotpoint WMA range of machine should be below the door, check out the error code definition at this site. You probably have a pressure chamber blockage or partial blockage. There are also workshop manuals for the Hotpoint WMA & WM machines which run through this sort of repair.

Blocked filter


This is for the WD420, but could be useful for you.

The filter is inside the machine. If you machine is still under guarantee I would try and get it done that way. Otherwise turn off the power and pull out the machine to get a the back.
Remove the panel at the bottom where the discharge hose comes out. You should see a black concertina type tube coming from the drum attached by a jubillee clip. The filter is inside. Losen the clip and pull away the tube take out the filter and clean it. When you replace it don't forget to put the ball float back in and check its well fixed by running a spin cycle before sealing up.

Hotpoint wma40 door seal


The black grime is mold. Once it is set into the rubber it is nearly impossible to remove. Bleach would have been my suggestion but since you've already tried that, replacing the bellows (door seal) is your next option. In the future, when the machine is not in use try keeping the door slightly open for any standing moisture to evaporate.

The door locked light will not go on.


If the door locked light is flashing, then in all probability, the main p.c.b board has blown due to a motor fault which caused the fuse to blow in the first case..
If no llight at all, then could be broken door latch or spring. If you pull on the handle and it feels sloppy , then that is where your problem is, it is not very often a door lock fails on one of these m/c's.
