Replacing Door Seal on AQW130 Candy Washer Dryer

Good evening. Please could you let me know what parts are required to replace the door seal (if any) other than the seal itself?

How do you remove and fit the new seal?

I can get the seal for £29.99, is there anywhere cheaper to get one?

Cheers

Andy

Is repair time and parts extensive for this type of repair? Kenmore Front Load Model# 110.45986401


Confirm that it is not the door seal. The door seal can easily be replaced and the parts are available.

You would expect that any water leaking around the door seal would migrate down to the lowest part of the tub leaving the appearance that the leak is where the two half's of the tub are joined by the retaining clips
.
Replacing the seal between the two tub half's is a different story as compared to the door seal. The tub seal is definitely do-able, but not for the faint of heart!!

If the leak is very very small I might wait until a major overall is require such as the tub seal/bearing. If I chose to wait I would monitor the situation.

Inspect the area at the hub of the pulley looking for streaks of rust.. If there is an indication that water is leaking past the basket tub seal than doing an over hall now may included front door seal, tub seal, bearing and basket seal replacement.

Door seal leaks


Most commonly, the source of the leak comes from the door bellow (gray rubber seal). They do wear out with age and can develop small rips and tears. A routine inspection of the perimeter of the door seal can determine if you have any holes. If the seal is damaged, it must be replaced. The following link explains how:


http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load


Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following web sites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

If no obvious rips or tears are found, it is also common for the bellow to stretch over time and no longer provide a good seal around the door glass. Make sure you check to see if the bellow is sealing properly all the way around the perimeter of the door.

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

The door is leaking when the washer is in use


Inspect the door bellow (seal) for any rips or tears. It may be worn or loose and require replacement. This is a fairly simple repair that anyone can do with a little guidance. The following link explains step-by-step how to install a door bellow on a Kenmore Elite front loader:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574186-installing_a_door_bellow_on_a_front_load

Although the bellow may not have any physical tears, they can also become mishapened over time due to normal wear and not seal properly. You should have a good tight seal all the way around the door.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions.

NOTE: There is another method you may try as well. Although I do not prefer this next method because these washing machines are very heavy, an alternative way of replacing the door bellow is to remove the lower toe panel and tilt the washer back at a 45 degree angle instead of removing the washer front panel. If you use this method, make sure it rests against the wall and will not tip forward. This allows the wash tub to drop down and away from the front panel and gives you access to the the rear bellow clamp through the bottom. This can save you some time.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites have excellent exploded view parts illustrations you can use for part location and assembly. Just use your model number to begin your search criteria.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: These door seals do wear out and require replacement from time to time. However, overloading the washer to the point where items get caught in the door area can contribute to premature wear and tear.

Some additional items to look for that may cause leaks around the bellow:

1. Check the dispenser tubes that pentrate the door bellow. Sometimes they get pushed behind the rubber causing the water to trickle behind the bellow and leak. You will notice this on fill and rinse.

2. Check the rear bellow clamp that holds the seal to the front facing of the wash tub. The clamp can come loose, causing it not to seal properly.

Hole in door gasket of a Hotpoint 9901w washer dryer.


It is quite involved to change the seal, as requires a partial strip down, if the hole is not very big, then you can do a fairly good repair using a bicycle punture repair kit..
Remove the plastic clip that holds the clamp ring on the front of the washer seal at the top, remove the clamp ring, take note how it is fitted, then pull seal off front of washer, and fit patch on underside of seal, refit seal and clamp,and job done!!!!
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Its called 'The Main Outlet Hose' But you can probably make a fairly good repair by wrapping Gaffa Tape around the hose. Tip! after replacing / repairing the hose tape some padding around it, so it doesnt wear again
