Judith, these things are a bi**ch to fit. You need 3 hands and patience by the bucket load. Try a good DIY neighbour or lastly an appliance engineer. Its all about experience and having the knack to fit one. Sorry.

SOURCE: how to fit a door seal on a Zanussi FJ 1295

this is a faily easy task essential to lubricate the seal with washing-up fluid in the slot which goes on the tub. enter the lip of the tub into the slot on the seal and work round in both directions forcing seal on with thumbs. the spring goes into a groove so as to keep it in position on the tub. then similiarly, put the seal on the cabinet and follow up with the plastic ring

How do I fit a new door gasket to a Hoover DT999 dishwasher (the short horizontal seal at the bottom of the door, not the longer one which wraps around the inside of the body of the machine)?


Well I just did this (ew!)

basically it just pulls out of a slot downwards (when doors open) but there's not much space so I took out a few screws to free the door up a bit.

So - sitting with the machine in front of you and door open down towards you:

I took out the two machine screws that hold the door on to the spring/hinge mechanism. Those are the two on the side of the door near to the hinge/bottom.
I also took out 3 of the screws that screw the inside metal bit of the door on to the plastic fron of the door.

You'll notice that the springs then force the inside and outside of the door apart and you've got some free space to pull the bottom seal out of the metal door. Then clean everything and squeeze the new seal in.

You're probably not going to be able to thread it in from one end.

When you're putting those two machine screws back in you'll probably need to do the top screw (nearest you when door open) with the door almost closed so that the spring is most relaxed and will let you line up the two holes.

Hope that helps

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?

Rubber seal damaged. needs to be replaced kenmore model 970-c44052-00 How do I remove sides to get at it?


there is no need to remove the side to replace the door seal, just behind the door seal there is a spring clip undo this and fold the seal into the drum were you should see another spring clip undo that as well and the door seal comes out from the front through the hole in the door, to refit a new fold the seal till its inside out and fitted on the inner drum first fit the inner clip then pull it through the door hole and fit the outer spring clip out side the door

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.

Door seal on servis M9824W has been removed to access bits in the drum. how do i refit it.


The door seal, the hot air inlet and door seal overflow pipe had been disconnected from the drum. Main problem was access to reconnect the door seal overflow which is a very short pipe section going to a small hole in the front of the outer drum and access very difficult.

First remove the top cover of the machine. Two very long screws and two self tappers at the top rear of the cover.

Make sure that the hot air duct is disconnected from the heater outlet and remove the separate plastic duct which bridges between the heater and the hot air duct in the seal.

In this case the door seal had been pulled off the outer drum and the retaining coil spring had also been recovered. If the seal is still in place there is a "handle" moulded into the seal which might assist in starting the removal of the seal.

Remove the outer seal from the front panel of the machine by easing out the wire and spring retainer which can be accessed by the door hinge. Carefully remove the door seal from the front panel and remove it.
Check for damage and if necessary get a replacement.

To Refit
Push the door seal into the machine loosely and connect the overflow pipe (very difficult access). I leaned the machine on its back to make access a little easier.

Next carefully fit the seal onto the outer drum starting at the bottom by the overflow pipe. Be very careful not to disturb the previously fitted overflow pipe. Make sure the seal is correctly fitted over the retaining flange on the drum.

Next fit the retaining spring by threading it behind the overflow pipe and into the recess on the outside edge of the seal, connect the two ends of the spring together to form a circle and carefully stretch it into place around the door seal. Take care at the top to make sure it goes behind the hot air inlet duct.
Apply a little gasket compound onto and under the lip of the overflow pipe where it enters the outer drum at the bottom (a bit messy and awkward).

Next fit the seal to the front panel of the machine ensuring that the tabs on the seal are aligned with the markings around the front edge of the door aperture.

Fit the wire and spring retainer such that the coil spring sits on the left side of the opening within the moulded recess in the door seal.

Now refit the hot air inlet duct between the heater unit and the door seal ensuring that the parts are it the correct position and the two lugs are stretched over the the small spigots on the heater body.

It took 4 hours to do the job but that included the learning curve. Reckon it should only take an hour if two peaple are available when fitting the inner and outer seal retaining springs.

Replace door gasket


It sounds like you have left the spring on the inside lip of the door opening when you removed the old seal,
You will have to take the seal off again and feel for the spring on the lip of the front of the drum, you will find it easier if you have something to hook it out with,it is fiddley, but you must get the spring out, or the seal will not stay on
Refit seal as before, and double it back inside the drum,then fit the spring in the groove that you can feel on the lip of the door seal. Work the spring all the way rond feeding it into the groove as you go round, you will find it a lot easier if you have someone there to hold the spring as you are are fittingit, it is very fiddley, stick with it!!!.
