Question about Zanussi ZJ1217 Front Load Washer
What are the steps to change the door seal.
I do not know how to get the old seal off
I hope you have small hands,and you are pretty handy with them cos these seals are tricky if its your first.
First remove the nylon clip around the front of seal it will pull off from bottom.then release outer rubber,then you have to just get your hand or fingers to pull at inner rubber,there is a spring around inner rubber lip but to make things awkward there is also a concrete counterweight around this.Once you have old seal out get new one and wipe some fairy liquid around inner lip to refit make sure pointy arrow is at the top.This is the tricky bit and hard to explain but you can only do it by feel and keep trying to get a part of inner lip over casing lip once it starts it can go easy or hard you may have to try a couple of times until you can feel it is on all the way round.Once on the spring has to be fitted its also tricky,start by door switch and put a long screwdriver thru. hole for door catch try to hold with knee or get help.Work it around keep screwdriver in until spring is nearly on keep hand on spring then gently try to remove screwdriver make sure spring on fully,now fit outer seal lip and fit nylon clamp.You may find it easier to tilt machine back slighty.I do this for a living and it can go easy or hard.Best of luck.
