Welcome To FixYa.

Can you elaborate on the issue you`d like assistance with or the question you have ?

Also a good idea to write in your washer make, model and serial number to leave out any uncertainty.

Thank You.

How do u fit door seal on a zanussi fjdr 1666w

Removal of the Seal.
Remove plastic clamp holding seal to cabinet and peel off the cabinet. Push downwards on the seal close to the tub and the seal will come off - its just held by a spring around the outside.

To fit the new Seal.
Lubricate the slot which fits over the tub with washing-up fluid.
Starting at the top, press the seal, so the flange of the tub enters the slot on the seal.
Work your way round the using thumbs to force the slot on the tub flange.
When the slot is on the flange all way round, fit the spring which holds it on.
The spring goes into a slot on the outside of the seal.
This is difficult, you may need another pair of hands.
Fit the outside of the seal to the cabinet and fit the plastic clamping ring.

Test for leaks.
Use Rinse to test for leaks, since the water level is higher.

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.

Sudsy water is leaking from the machine

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The tub seal is the most common thing that causes Maytag washers to leak. This is unfortunate because the tub seal is an expensive repair job and not one I would suggest doing yourself. I say this because it is complicated and requires special tools to perform this job. To check if the tub seal is bad, first remove the front panel by removing the two screws from the bottom of the front panel. If you have a newer model, prize the bottom clips with a screwdriver. Then pull the bottom of the panel until the top clips release. Then start the washer and watch for a leak around transmission where it goes through the tub. If it does leak then the tub seal is bad and needs replacing. If you have the tool or willing to buy it click here for instructions on how to replace the tub seal. If the tub seal doesn't, leak you probably found the leak while performing this test.

Maytag Dependable LAT8824AAE. Main tub seal leaks

The part number for the mounting stem and seal kit is 6-2095720 it cost about 85 bucks retail. You will also need to buy a special maytag spanner wrench to remove the inner tub. Its NOT an easy job the inner and outer tubs and hoses all need to be removed. The seal kit comes with no instructions. If you had a service company do the job it would be probably around 250 maybe more. We charge 104.95 labor for the job. Good luck _MJ_

On a hotpoint ultima wt741. how does the plastic outer tub separate so that the inner steel drum can be removed so as to replace the bearings?

2 tubs used on these-one has screw going around the middle of the tub to split in half/the other is a sealed tank which means you have to replace tub-if you have a filter under the front kick strip then its the sealed tub

My dishwasher is leaking... I have a seal but dont know how to replace it its a maytag dishwasher

If you are talking about the seal that goes around the door, it simply inserts into a groove around the perimeter of the tub facing. Just follow these steps:

1. Remove old seal by pulling it from the groove around the perimeter of the tub facing and clean the area to ensure it is free of food debris and/or sopa deposits. This will ensure the new seal seats properly. Also clean the facing of the door interior where it meets the door seal.
2. Take the new tub seal and locate the center mark. This is usually a small paint spot or small groove. If there is no center mark on the seal, fold it in half and mark this spot with your fingers.
3. Insert the seal at the top center portion of the tub facing at the center mark of the seal.
4. Push seal into the groove and work your way around the tub facing all the way to the bottom along each side. You can remove the seal and readjust as necessary.

Once the seal is in place, close the door and compress. The door will shut tight for a while until the new seal breaks in.

If you have questions, or if this isn't the seal you are talking about, please post back and elaborate more on what you need assistance with. Please include your full model number so that I may be able to provide you with better assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.
