Hello. You can easily replace the ring yourself. Here's how: Place the seal back into position. Start the ring back into the groove behind the seal face, installing so that the spring part will go on last. Work the ring into the groove, and when you get to just the spring part left, carefully lever it over the hump with a small screwdriver, being careful not to damage the seal.

Whirlpool Front load washer - the grey round rubber came out. I put it back on and now all th water leaked out of the machine all over the floor


I don't know what model you have, but mine has a big spring that goes all the way around the rubber gasket. If that is not in place it will leak. I wonder if the spring in yours is under the gasket and didn't get put back on properly.

The rubber gasket around the drum opening is leaking and rusting


You can replace it by lifting the lip of the rubber around the edge and finding the wire where the springs connect there you can stretch the springs apart, remove the wire and pull off the rubber. Just make sure first that is where the leak is, sometimes a leak in the soap dispenser water tube can seem like door gasket leak.

Washer leaks during spin cycle. my daughter pulled the drum out of alignment temporarily while pulling a comforter out of the washer. the door seal is intact although there is a wire ring that came out...


The spring goes around the door seal it needs to be stretched around the small lip that holds the seal in place. The spring is where you grab it with needle nose pliers. the spring goes on the bottom. You will see where the rubber seal has a wider spot this is where the spring should be right at the 6 o'clock position. This is a little tricky to do the first time trying but keep at it you will get it.

A piece of fabric got caught in the seal and it it slightly torn and the seal is warped. A round wire with a spring fell out and the door will not close.


you will have to replace the boot glove as this is what i think you mean,the part were the door fits into,if there is a rip in this rubber boot then water will leak through teribly,the round wire you refer to is the wire that goes around the boot to hold this securely to the washer preventing it from leaking,hope this helps,rgrds,paul

Need to replace the rubber door seal on a hotpoint Ultimate WT960


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)

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.
