Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a replacement gasket to put on my front loading Bosch washer. It came with 2 spring clamps. I can see where the front one goes but where does the rear one go? I can't see or feel the current one and I don't want to take off the old gasket before I know if I can do the replacement job or not.

Put front gasket back on

start on the door side of the appliance put the top of the circle in first this should allow you to stretch the spring a little to make it go on
its a pain and it kills the tips of your fingers try not to overstrech it because it will fall off all the time

Gasget came off the washer and i can't get it back on

I have the perfect solution the placing of the Retaining Spring back on the Bosch Nexxt 500 Door Gasket. It only took me only 5 Minutes after fighting with it for hours and getting nowhere. What I did was purchase a set of 12 inch hemostats (long Clamping Pliers). The ends of the Hemostats I wrapped both of the jaws with Electrical tape to prevent the Spring on the retainer from sliding up the jaws of the hemostat. When the ends of the retainer are placed on the ends of the jaws and the hemostat opened the spring is stretched. I found that If you use your knee to hold the hemostat open while placing the retainer in the groove of the gasket you can slowly release the springs and set the retainer back into the gasket without the gasket pulling off the tabs.

How do you replace the door seal on a Bosch Nexxt front load washer?

Tilt the m/c back and remove the clamp securing the seal to the front of the cabinet, double the seal back inside the washer door opening, and then pull the retaining spring off the inside of the door seal which is fitted in a groove at the back of the seal.
Refit the new seal starting at the topmake sure the seal is fittef the right way up, drainage holes to the bottom.
Work the seal on all the way round the drum, and then roll the spring into the groove at the back of the seal and work it round all the way round the seal, you will find it easier if you have someone to help hold the spring in place..
Refit the seal round the front of the cabinet,and refit clamp at front.
Plz rate this solution.

it is very hard to get the ring on front load washers,
it is much easier to remove the top. bottom and the front control panel
then the door and support panel.
now you have access.
some times you have to remove the counter weight in some models before putting on the ring.
if you can do it without removing these items you are very very good.

How do I get the seal back on the inside drum

I did it! Thanks Paul, now I can cancel the repair guy that was scheduled to come in
two weeks.

No, you don't have to remove the front panel

To replace the boot gasket you first have to remove the old one. start by removing the outer ring, I used a needle nose pliers on the eyelet to stretch the spring a bit. This allowed for room so the ring came off of the outer gasket lip. To remove the gasket
off of the drum apply some down ward pressure on the gasket at the bottom. The
gasket will pop off in that spot, now just pull the rest off. I the used my needle nosed
pliers to pinch the clamp that holds the gasket to the water hose. The old boot gasket is now free from the machine.

Now to put the new boot gasket back on. A little tricky, be patient.
As you might have noticed there is a spring ring that will be holding the gasket once it is in place, put that aside for now. I followed Paul's advise, start the gasket at the top, work down one side then the other a little bit at a time, until the bottom is pushed
into place. Then came the spring ring part. That was tricky, I had to ask my 9 year old little girl to help dad. Note, keep the spring ring attached, It kept wanting to unhook itself. Start at the top, like you did with the gasket. I had my helper hold down the portion that was in place, while I worked the spring ring around some more.

Once the boot gasket is attached to the drum, attaching it to the outer ring is a piece of cake.
