Posted by on

  • wimbleton Apr 05, 2008

    I need to know (using a clock's face as reference) where the spring goes, i.e. at 6 o'clock. Also, when I try to put the metal band in place, it pulls the seal loose when I go to stretch the spring - is there a trick to putting it back?

  • wimbleton Apr 05, 2008

    No, apparently clothing in the washer caught on the seal and pulled it loose and popped the metal ring off in the process. Clothing was tangled into a large knot. Seal is not damaged but I can't get the metal ring back into place.

The rubber seal came off of the inside during the spin cycle - behind door against the tub -- and a wire ring came out. I put the rubber seal back on but have no idea where the wire ring would go? Is this...


The wire ring is the seal retaining spring, it fits in a groove at the rear of the door seal.
Double the seal back in the drum, and fit the spring around the seal at the rear of same, it fits inside a groove, it is difficult, so persist and be patient.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

Bosch Classixx - Rubber Door Seal - I heard the easiest way to get the inner ring back on is to remove the whole front panel - How do I do this?


Not recommended, tilt washer backwards, and work spring on with your fingers, slowly going round the inner lip of the seal, it helps if you can get someone to help by holding the spring in place as you work your round the seal.
Please rate my solution.

FRONT DOOR OF WASHER LEAKING


Hello. W/D here.

It's actually pretty easy to get it back on when you know the trick.

Since it has leaked on you, you may want to remove the seal off of the rim closest to the door and clean the rim and the sealing surface. The seal has a molded lip that fits on to a raised formed rim, and it gets pressed on snugly before the ring and spring are added. You can seat the seal by pressing on it all the way around with the palms of your hands.
To install the ring:
Start the ring 180 degrees from the spring, placing it in the groove behind the seal face. (You want to make sure that the seal is pressed back into place first). Work the ring on around the seal, until you get to mostly just the spring remaining. Now lever the spring over the lip and into the groove, using a small screwdriver, being careful not to damage the seal with the screwdriver.

Best regards, --W/D--

Bosch wfm3200 rubber gasket


You need to turn the seal back in on iteself at the front, then starting at the 12-o clock position, start feeding the spring round into the recess you will feel at the rear edge of the seal, it is a goove and that is where the spring fits.
As you progrees round with the spring you will find it harder and harder to get it to stay in the groove, this where you could do with some assistance.
You need to have some one hold the spring in place as you progreeively fit the spring.
You may find you will have to have more than attempt.
As a last resort, you can stretch the spring, which will make it easyier to fit., but do not stretch it too much, or it will not stay on.
Plz leave feed back for this solution.

Metal ring aroound rubber seal fell off.


Start with the spring at the bottom, work the retainer around until the seal starts to pull away from the washer. Now grip the loop that the spring attaches to on the side that isn't in place and open the retainer. Push the retainer in place and release the spring.
