This is not easy and there is a real knack to it. You will find it easier to have a second person helping. One holds the spring in position at the top and the other at the bottom and roll the spring over your hands into the slot

SOURCE: I am trying to fit

Its a tricky one but the easiest way is tolubricate the inside of the flap with wash up liquid then starting at bottom feed it on bit by bit following round with other hand to stop it slipping off. Once on its easy to rotate into correct position.
You will need an extra pair of hands to help with the spring.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.

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 u fit door seal on a zanussi fjdr 1666w


Removal of the Seal.
Remove plastic clamp holding seal to cabinet and peel off the cabinet. Push downwards on the seal close to the tub and the seal will come off - its just held by a spring around the outside.

To fit the new Seal.
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 the 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 difficult, you may need another pair of hands.
Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet and fit the plastic clamping ring.

Test for leaks.
Use Rinse to test for leaks, since the water level is higher.

Whirlpool Front Loading Duet Washing Machine Plastic at drum front shredding


i think your talking about the rubber door seal????
you can change this yourself,,,under the seal on the case is a wire spring unhook it and the door seal will fold inside the washer,,,on the inner drum you will find the other wire spring undo this as well and pull the old door seal out through the hole in the door,,,the new seal is fitted to the iner drun first so you need to turn the new seal inside out to fit it,,,push the seal into the washer and fit the inner wire first then unfold the seal and fit it over the outer door so you can fit the wire spring,,,
easy after you have fitted a fuw 100?
