SOURCE: washing machine replacement door seal

It is held on by a spring that stretches around the outside of the seal. The seal simply hooks on to a small lip so all you need to do is start in one spot and push it down and away. Then just work it around like removing a bike tire until it is fully removed. Be careful of the spring. It is hooked together so it may unhook once some of the tension is removed and snap around.

SOURCE: Rubber door seal problem

In my 13.5 years experience I have never experienced a door seal coming away from the drum!!!
If this was the case then you would have a major water leak!!!

Does the door seal look twisted at all?
Have a good look at the seal. Is there any black mold on the seal?

If the seal has come off then I would need to guide you through the refit process.

Please email me on: aardvark.repairs@btinternet.com and I will email you back my phone number

Regards

The rubber ring on washing machine aquarius wf541 has black stuff and is really filthy all over. i want to remove it to clean it. how do i remove it.


Removing the tub shield gasket is not a simple matter I'm afraid, though not horibly complex. You will need to remove the top of the machine and unclip the fixing ring that holds it to the tub from inside the machine (This is a bit of a tight squeeze!). There is also a fixing ring on the outer edge of the tub shield gasket (Where the door seals to the rubber), usually a clip device that can be unclipped with a screwdriver. The gasket can then be removed. REassembly is a simple reverse of the removal.

HOWEVER, before you do this, you may find that having cleaned it as best as you can, painting some household bleach on the gasket and leaving it overnight then washing it down the next morning will be a great help (You might want to do this for a couple of nights in a row).

How do I remove and refit the door seal? I'm managed to remove the clip at the front but something I cannot see is attaching the rubber seal at the back.


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.

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

Changing door seal on miele washing machine


The steps are: 1. Open the machine door.
2. Turn the main power off and unplug the machine from the wall.
3. Completely remove the powder dispenser drawer (it will come out so far (and stop), then there is a small button at the rear of the dispenser which you need to depress to remove it fully, you'll see this button once you've withdrawn the drawer to its stop position.
5. Undo and remove the 3 x hexagonal head bolts surrounding the door seal (they are at approximately the 2, 6 and 10 o'clock positions). Note these bolts actually secure the front panel to the machine chassis, they do not retain the door seal. Don't worry the front will not drop off.
6. Now look at the aperture of the powder dispenser drawer (you have of course removed the actual drawer earlier). Locate the lower left hand corner of the aperture, and you'll see a recessed philips head screw in a hole. Undo and remove that screw.
7. You DO NOT need to tilt, or lift up the washing machine to do the next bit. Locate the underside of the front panel right at the bottom. You'll notice that it sticks out about half an inch or so and is proud of what I would call the kick plate which extends right down to the floor. You need to look on the underside of the front panel, about an inch or so in from the left hand edge. There you will see a spring loaded clip which when closed is located within a slot on the underside of the front panel. Using a flat bladed screwdriver, you need to carefully lever the spring clip open whilst gently pulling the whole front panel (from the left side) ajar. It will just suddenly pop out once you've done it.
8. Open the pump access door lower left hand side of the front panel) and unclip the drain tube from its plastic retaining clip.
9. Now carefully swing open the whole front panel, it opens like a door (hinged on the right hand side). It might be a little stiff as there are a whost of leads attached to it, but it is designed to open fully (with the leads attached) to about 90 degrees.
10. Next, unseat the rubber door seal from around the door opening area (on the chassis, not the front panel, obvioulsy), so that the seal the flops away from the chassis and lies just inside the machine.
11. You will notice that there is a thin steel band holding the door seal in place around the drum. On the right hand side (at about the 3 o'clock position), you'ss see a tensioning screw for the band. With a flat bladed screwdriver undo this completely and remove the screw (it is accessible from above with a long screwdriver). Be aware that there is 1 x washer and 1 x 'nut' type fitting that will fall out when you remove the screw. Locate these and retain them for later.
12. Now extend the steel band to its maximum opening (by moving the 2 x lugs apart where the now removed screw was).
13. You can now remove the steel band. Then pull it out through the hole/door aperture in the chassis.
14. Locate the small rubber tag at about the 12 o'clock position where the seal is attached to the drum and tug it. The seal will then come away from the drum. Remove the old seal completely.
15. Using your new seal, place this correctly around the drum (there is a lip on the seal and this has to go over the lip on the drum. Remember, the seal goes on the OUTSIDE of the drum. Ensure the 'tag' is at the 12 o'clock position.
16. Reassembly is then the reverse of removal.
17. Make sure that you do up the retaining steel band sufficiently and that you correctly locate the sela on the chassis front panel (there is a groove in the seal which will locate the seal in the aperture).
18. Finally, once you're done, put the machine through a few rinse cycles (where the water level is high) and look for leaks. If you have a leak, it is likely that your door seal has a rip/tear, or that it has not been correctly located around the drum - in which case you'll need to investigate.

I need to replace the seal round the door but cannot remove the old one


Take the top panel off by removing the two screws underneath the lid at the rear and look down inside towards the front door edge of the drum you will see a very large metal hose clips holds the door seal on. A screwdriver will loosen the clip then the clip will slip off and then the seal can be removed and replaced

Bosch washing machine


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
