Hi,the door seal is held in place with a wire with spring on it,just open door get hold of rubber witch is attatched where door closes,
if you pull on the rubber at the edge you will see the wire you will have to get a flathead screwdriver to prise it out,once you take the metal band off just pull the rubber off,then if you pull on the rubber the inside bit of the rubber will come out.
hope this was some help.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: leaking door due to the wire ring that holds rubber seal

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs: 

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time

During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak. 


Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak. 



During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details. 


All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician. 


Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it. 


Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: replacing a rubber door seal on washer machine

1. Remove door (2 screws).
2. remove top (2 screws at back, sharp slap to front to dislodge).
3. Remove 2 screws holding powder dispenser to inlet valve.
4. Remove 2 screws at front corners securing fascia.
5. Remove fascia and powder dispenser as a unit - note plastic locating pegs on underside and plastic clips locating bottom onto front panel. Take care not to drop one of the rubber seals from valve/powder dispenser joint. Do not disconnect the wiring, just lay the complete assembly on top of the machine.
6. At some point, you will need to release the retaining wire securing the seal to the front panel. This is a thin spring loaded wire. Look after it, you will need it again.
7. Remove two screws at front securing front panel.
8. Remove kick panel - this allows access to two more screws securing bottom of front panel - take these out as well.
9. unclip the wire connector to the door switch.
The front panel may now be lifted from its plastic retainers.
10. The second wire clip can now be removed. The clever clip will need to be released to allow refitting.
11. Thoroughly clean and disinfect the seating for the new seal - you don't want the same gunk growing into the new one straight away.
12. On the drum, you will notice a protruding moulding at about 5 o'clock. There is a matching flange on the seal to help you locate it accurately - start here and fit the seal.
13. Fit the wire retainer - you will need a good pair of long-nose pliers to retension the wire.
14. Reassemble the machine in the reverse order - take care not to mix up the screws! remember to fit the seal to the front panel before refitting the door. Do not release the spring from the wire, carefully stretch it into place.

Front door rubber seal


Fairly easy to do. It is held on with 2 wire rings, one on the outside edge of the seal when you open the door and when that is removed there is another one holding it to the outer drum. Removal of the lid may also help with removal of the inner ring. When refitting you press the lip of the seal over the outer drum edge and fit the retaining ring back and then do the same on the front where the door meets the seal. Just make sure the small drain holes in the seal are located at the bottom, best to look at the old one to see how it's fitted before you remove it.

There is another retaining band , clip, or spring holding the seal to the front of the drum, you need to remove this to remove the sea,double the seal back inside the drum to expose the retainer.

I have a Whirlpoool 6th sense front loader. The drum is constantly rubbing against the front rubber seal which constantly whines and screams. Is there an easy fix???? We reported this to the service centre...


Few things to check as the gap tollarance between the drum and rubber seal is small. Open door and turn drum by hand. Look carefully and see if the drum has an uneven wobble which is touching the rubber. If it has, you need to send the machine back or frplace the drum. Sometimes the rubber is installed slightly off centre which alters the correct rotation gap. Seal would need to be removed and realligned correctly.(I would check the drum for any signs of not being truly round)

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

How to replace seal between door and drum


1. Unplug from mains electricity.
2. Pull machine out from wall carefully.
3. Remove screws in top corners (that are holding down the top panel of the machine) at the back of machine.
4. Remove top panel of machine (slide it slightly in the direction of the back of the machine, it just lifts off).
5. Remove the detergent drawer (pull it right out and put it to the side)
6. Remove the two screws at the top of the gap where the detergent drawer goes in
7. Remove the two screws at the top, front of the machine
8. Now lift out the panel with the control dials on it (etc.). Careful here, you don’t have to disconnect all of them, you should just be able to put this to the side with all the wires still connected.
9. If the old door seal is still on (if not go to 10):
a. Look carefully at the arrangement of the rubber at the lip of the drum and the door rim (you’ll need to know so you can put the new one on)
b. The outer rim is sealed in by a circular wire linked by a small spring. It’s a bit tricky but you can unhook the spring from the wire (using a blunt knife to lever it out – careful not to damage the rubber) to remove it.
c. The inner rim is sealed with a larger circular spring. You can either lever this out with the same blunt knife, or just pull hard on the rubber to get it out, and the rubber off.
10. Now position the new rubber door seal between the drum and the door
11. Grip tight around the outside and inside of the rubber door seal and attach it to the lip of the drum. This is the trickiest bit, and seems impossible but it is doable. The key here is that once you have a bit of it on, the rest will slip on as you work around it the circle. Even at the bottom and sides where your hands can’t reach it should slip on nicely. It ain’t easy, give it time.
12. Now get the spring on the inner rim to seal it (again, not easy, give it time and muscle – you need 3 hands for this!)
13. Then attach the outer rim to the lip of the door rim, and hook the metal wire back in place with the little spring.
14. Put the panels and screws back in in the reverse order to how they came off/out. Make sure there’s no parts left over, ey!
15. There you go – plug it back in and run a test wash. Check for leaks

Large rubber door seal came apart


Yes it can be put back on without taking the drum apart. The larger end goes on the drum side. Fit larger end around drum lip make sure it seals all the way around, install spring around seal. Smaller end goes around door opening. Install seal around outter lip and install spring around seal.

GE Front Loader rubber boot completely out of shape


You can replace the rubber door seal yourself if you are logically minded and are handy with tools. Isolate the washer from the mains supply. Remove the top fixing screws at the back of the washer. Slide the top of the washer to the rear of the washer and remove. Now you will be able to see the outer drum and the securing band to the drum. This needs loosening and moving clear of the outer drum so you can disconnect the seal from the drum. When you open the door, you will find see that the door seal connects to the washer outer body. You should see a holding catch probably made of plastic. This has to be removed and take care not to break anything. When re fitting the seal,you will find on the front inner edge a small hole, this must be in the 6 o'clock position. Working from the door access, feed the new seal on the outer drum and secure it with the retaining band that you removed earlier, at this stage do not fully tighten as you may need to readjust the seal later on. Now working at the door, feed on the door seal and position the small hole at 6 o'clock. If you find that the seal is twisting, then you will have to readjust the the seal on the inner outer drum. When everything is lined up, tighten the inner securing band then the outer retaining band by the door. Recheck that the small hole on the door inner lip is at 6 o'clock and both the door an outer drum securing bands are tight. This done, check for leaks by part filling the washer and then putting the washer on an emptying cycle. If all is well, then isolate the power to the washer and refit the the top of the washer and secure with the screws you removed earlier. On no account put your hands or tools inside the washer when it is on and connected to the power supply.

I have not yet replaced a door seal on your model of washer, but I have done quite a few and the process is the same. I hope you can follow these instructions and if you come across a snag, think about it and i am sure you will find the solution. You can always get to me at FixYa.

Door seal wont drain


I would suggest using a blunt object to clear the drainage holes in the rubber seal. I'd advise against removing the seal for this problem. LG has special pliers to remove the spring loaded wire from around the front of the door seal and another for the larger size one where the rubber seal attaches to the outer drum. The second one is much harder to reattach, even somewhat difficult with the washer's front off if you do not have the special pliers.

i am recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, the rear door seal clamp is generally nowadays a large thin spring that is slightly hidden by the concrete weights at the front of the drum, if thats the case the door seal will just come off with a good firm pull round the drum edge, fitting as a reverse of removal, place the door seal in the groove so it fits like it should, then stretch the spring and fit that into the outer groove round the lip of the door seal at the drum end, once that is done fit the seal on the front panel lip, then replace that clamp, check all is fitted securely before running machine its one of those jobs that hard to explain how to do it, hope i have helped a bit, its easier to work through the front door opening than from above? if i have please rate me thank you
