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,

The front support seals -felt around the top of the door -are worn out. You can order them online with your model # or call the parts distributor and tell them you need the replacement kit - it comes with the top and side seals. To get them separate is more money. You will have to take apart the front of the unit - top first - then the control panel and then the door (front). It supports the drum. You will need to scrape off the old seals and apply the heat glue for the seals. Put the new seals on and reassemble the unit. This should do it if it was rubbing on the front plastic.

most common reason for what you are describing is a faulty door lock part no. 1602390.

easily fitted by undoing door seal retainer, removing two screws holding on door lock and then just change over wire for wire.(only 3 wires).

this should get you going

My refrig door wont seal tight can you buy


if you are having frost buil up on the model and it appears to be a freezer the seal may not be bad but you can not buy new magnets.the seal comes as one piece.you can do it your self.but try sealing the air flow vents in the bottom of the door with tape or silicone.the the diffuse plate in the back if it has slotted holes in it they can be covered with some aluminum tape.if you change the door seal the insultaion in the door panel should be change as well it more than likely has some ice build up in there
