We wish to replace the rubber doorseal on Hotpoint WMA42P. I can remove the door seal ring but cannot quite see how the drum seal is fixed. Is it the same system with a sprung ring? Martyn

The following video is of a Hotpoint WF door seal replacement which is the same as the WMA series except the fascia panel is slightly different, make sure you take a photo of the wiring connections before you remove the fascia so you know where they go when you replace it

We have a Frigidaire "Affinity" front loader it is leaving a puddle on the floor when we use it. I assume the rubber ring is bad has anyone changed it themselves? Is it a hard fix?


Are you sure it's the door seal? If it is they are normally just held in place with 2 metal rings, 1 at the edge of the seal at the door opening and one at the outer drum. Once you remove the front ring from the door opening you can gain access to the one at the drum. Removing the lid of the machine will also help and give you a bit more light.
Anyone with a bit of DIY know how should be able to replace it, an hour tops for a beginner.

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.

I CANT GET FRONT OFF HOTPOINT AQURIUS TI CHANGE RUBBER SEAL


to change the door seal you have to take the front boot ring off fold the door boot into the drum and undo the retaining clip around the door seals inner drum you can get a screwdriver in from the top a bit tricky but its the only way as the front is riveted on and wont come off like the older machines

HOW TO REMOVE RUBBER SEAL


ok if you look around the front of the rubber seal you will see a wire holding it in place on the wire there is a spring if you pull the spring off with a pair of pliers the door seal will just pull off the cabinet then take off the lid and you will see the wire that goes around the door seal where its held onto the drum some have a screw on it and some just pull off then give the seal a good pull from the front of the machine it will pull off quite easy then just push the new seal into place and replace the wire thankyou

Hole in door gasket of a Hotpoint 9901w washer dryer.


It is quite involved to change the seal, as requires a partial strip down, if the hole is not very big, then you can do a fairly good repair using a bicycle punture repair kit..
Remove the plastic clip that holds the clamp ring on the front of the washer seal at the top, remove the clamp ring, take note how it is fitted, then pull seal off front of washer, and fit patch on underside of seal, refit seal and clamp,and job done!!!!
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

the frigidaire gallery has a sealed bearing in it and you have to replace the tub half there are no special tools needed just time. it would be best to take it to a repair shop yes its a little costly but it is worth the money. it takes about 1 1/2 hours to fix it with parts on hand

How do I fit a new door gasket?


after putting the seal on with the aid of washing up liquid put the spring on first by the door catch hold it on with one hand and isnert a screwdriver in the hole for the door catch this will enable you to hold the spring on if you put your knee against the screwdriver giving you two hands free to push the spring on
