Not a big job but you may need an extra pair of hands as one part is awkward.
remove plastic clip that holds seal to cabinet - i prise clip of with a screwdriver. unpeel seal from cabinet and fold it inside the drum.
the seal is held onto tub with a large circular spring. push bottom of seal down and pull out and seal will come off together with spring.
now comes the awkward bit
lubricate the groove that fits onto the tub with washing up fluid all round. starting at top, push groove onto lip of tub. with thumbs, work all the way round in opposite directions with each hand until seal is completely located on lip of tub. this is quite hard to do so you may have to try several time but don't despair. fold the seal into the drum to make the next bit easier
next the spring has to be located which is where a second pair of hands will be helpful
start the spring at the top into the external groove of the seal and just work round till the spring slips into the groove. its harder than it sounds and four hands makes it a lot easier.
slip the seal onto the cabinet (easy bit) and fit the plastic clip
test for leaks using the rinse cycle (water level is higher)
this job used to take me under 5 mins and it is a real knack but is not really that hard. you can do it! the trick is always lubricate with washing up fluid
go for it

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!

Replaced door seal now door is difficult to close.


Sometimes, it is hard to close door after fitting a new seal.
Make sure you have got it fitted correctly round the flange on the front of the cabinet, and that the retaining clamp is securely fastened.
Try smearing the door glass with washing up liquid, this can help to close the door more easily
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Fitting a door seal to a Zanussi ZWD 1270SA washing/drier


Follow these steps to replace your door seal:

For all Free appliance repair videos visit our VIDEO TUTORIALS
Disconnect all power to the machine first!!

1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,
