    Dutchman, easier said then done. I cannot get the gasket back on my WM1814CW LG Tromm. I have been at it for multiple hours the past two days. Any advice on getting the bugger back on? I can't even get it to the point that the retainer ring can be set. I've doule checked it's the right gasket.

    Thanks

Depends on which machine you have but essential it is all the same. There will be a ring on the outside of the seal( outside of the machine) take that off and fold the seal ove into itself. Or even fold it into the drum. Than you can reach the retainer ring on the outside of the drum. remove that one and replace in the opposit sequence.
Aint to hard but just a little annoying to do.
Good luck

SOURCE: How do I fit a new door gasket?

after putting the seal on with the aid of washing up liquid put the spring on first by the door catch hold it on with one hand and isnert a screwdriver in the hole for the door catch this will enable you to hold the spring on if you put your knee against the screwdriver giving you two hands free to push the spring on

Need to replace the door gasket. Can this be done with the door on?


Door on is the preferred method for me. Once you take it off and place it on the floor you can break the handle. (must remove the handle if you remove the door or place it on blocks of wood. (IF you remove it)

It is a matter of loosening the screws removing the old door seal and fitting the new door seal in place.

(Tighten the seal mounting / hold down screws when your done fitting the new seal.)

Thanks for using FixYa!

How to re-attach a door boot


The door gakset is held on by a round ring on the inside of the drum and another round ring on the outside (where the door meets the gasket). Make sure the gasket is oriented correctly, then starting either on the inside or outside, stretch the ring to fit over the gasket and into the channel. There is a spring on the ring clamp that allows it to be stretched. It is easiest if using 2 needle nose pliers - 1 to hold the ring and 1 to stretch the ring by grabbing the loop where it attaches to the spring. You should be able to stretch it far enough to get the entire ring to fit over the gasket and then onto it before letting it go back into position. Be careful not to tear the gasket. Try to orient the ring so the spring is in the 10 o'clock or 2 o'clock position (to avoid door leaks). Hope this helps.

Hotpoint washing machine WMA66


Thank you gittos73.

It's as gittos says. When you open the door and look inside, at the very top of the door is a white square. This holds the metal clip. If you push the little white dot in the middle of this clamp gently, it gives way and you will see the round metal clip that goes all the way round the door rubber (gasket). Remove this and you can put your fingers round the gasket and pull it toward you.

Then take the lid off the machine and you will see a 6mm nut with a spring behind it and a wire clip similar to the front one, going round the gasket where it attaches to the drum. This has a crosspoint (phillips type) head on it and you can get a small screwdriver into it and undo it all the way. Then slide the gasket off and it will come away.

Fitting it is the reverse but it is a little bit tricky as you have to get the gasket behind the lip to make the seal. Take your time and they will both go round properly.
