    this is from Paul_bosh here at FixYa

    It is held on by a spring that stretches around the outside of the
    seal. The seal simply hooks on to a small lip so all you need to do is
    start in one spot and push it down and away. Then just work it around
    like removing a bike tire until it is fully removed. Be careful of the
    spring. It is hooked together so it may unhook once some of the tension
    is removed and snap around.

    It is not a big deal to replace this part, you are doing the right thing leaving it open as they tend to mould up if left shut.

    I am getting a part number for you to get you replacement.

    I am more than happy to answer any other questions you may have about
    it, please get back to me here, or use the ASK function to go straight
    to me :) If you are still unsure, have problems, or we need to look at
    the situation more deeply, then before you give a rating for this

    I did not find alot of parts supply for your model, so I suggest that you go straight to Bosch. They have an online ordering system for you to get the correct seal you need.
    Oh, and I am assuming you are in Europe... let me know if you need more assistance with getting the new seal

    Hi, did you see my solution to your problem. The seal has come adrift from its mountings and will need to re secured into place. I have pasted it back into here for some reason you did not see it the first time.

Leaking water from underneath


The door connects to a round gasket called the "bellows". If it is torn, deformed or coming off water will leak underneath. Undo the 3 screws in the lower front panel and do an inspection of that area

My whirlpool duet front load washer door leaks. How do I get a replacement seal for the door?


YOU NEED A NEW BOOT ON THE INSIDE OF THE DOOR. WHEN YOU OPEN YOUR DOOR THERE SHOULD BE A GRAY RUBBERY RING. AS A MATTER OF FACT, IF YOU MOVE THAT RING AND PUT YOUR FINGERS IN IT YOU WILL PROBABLY FIND A MISSING SOCK OR TWO! THAT RING HAS TORN AND NEEDS TO BE REPLACED.

Hello, my axxis washer gets mold build up on the rubber gasket at the door. i have ordered a new one but do not feel the need to pay $200.00 for the install. can i get instructions to install on my own. i...


Um...have fun. I have replaced two of them.

the way to keep the mold from growing in the future is to leave the door open so that you don't create that closed moist environment.

About the easist way to replace/change is to remove the front of the washer (I have completed w/o doing that but took a bit longer).

Make sure you keep an eye on how the old one comes off as some of them have drain pipes connected.

To remove:
There is a metal ring with a spring attached, simply streatch spring a bit at bottom of door and it should come right off. Do the same for the inside seal, that spring is at the top.

To install:

put the metal ring inside the grove of the gasket, then align gasket on the front. Pick an edge to start working around as you get closer to the top (I pick the lower right hand side to start working around. Make sure that your spring part of the metal ring is at the top where the one you replace was at.) once you get to a point you need to stretch the spring, this is where I use an 90 degree or more pick tool to get into the end of the spring. You need to make sure that you have the seal tight. Start pulling on the spring to stretching it so that can put the rest on. (You need to keep tension on the gasket so that the metal ring does not slide.)

Now to the front.

Just make sure that the spring part is at the bottom. When you took the otherone off, it was at the bottom. It has to go there as there is a groove. Once you get the metal part around the gasket push a bit on the spring and make sure it is in that goove.

To test, open and close your washer door a couple times. At first gently.

Hope this helps as they are a pain in the rear.

Also, here is a nice parts place for all your Bosch parts. www.repairclinic.com

The gasket was only about $75 to my door.

Kenmore elite washer metal band on gray seal


The retaining ring inserts into a groove in the rubber seam around the perimeter of the door where it attaches to the door frame. To reinstall, first make sure the door boot is fitting snugly around the door frame opening. Sometimes when the retaining spring comes loose, the rubber may pull away from the door frame. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure the wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place with your thumbs. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.

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

Metal ring fell off


If you are talking about a small metal hoop with a spring on one end, it is the outer bellow retaining clamp. The bellow is the rubber door seal. The retaining ring inserts into a groove in the rubber seam around the perimeter of the door where it attaches to the door frame. To reinstall, first make sure the door boot is fitting snugly around the door frame opening. Sometimes when the retaining spring comes loose, the rubber may pull away from the door frame. Beginning at the top of the door, start inserting the wire hoop back into the groove. Make sure the wire spring points towards the bottom. As you work your way around the door to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, you will need to maintain some constant downward pressure while pulling the spring apart in order to snap it back into place with your thumbs. It would be advisable to use a second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in place while doing this as it has the tendency to want to come out of the groove.

If this is not the spring you are talking about, please post back and elaborate a bit more on what the part looks like to see if I can assist you better. (i.e., size, dimension, where you found the part, etc.)

I hope you find this information helpful.

Water leaks out of the bottom area of the door


There is a ring that holds the door gasket in place on the outside of the front panel and another ring inside the drum (the ring has a spring on it that allows it to be stretched.

There are 2 tools that LG has that make the ring clamp easy to install/remove, but you can also use 2 pair or needle nose pliers (one to hold the ring at the spring and another to stretch the ring). Just be careful not to damage the gasket.

Also, when ordering the new door gasket, make sure you have your serial number handy. There are 2 versions of the door gasket (depending on the serial number).

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

Gasket came loose and rapped around laundry-tub seems loose


if your metal ring (clamp) came off it is most likely due to you shocks or the spring at the top are worn out and need to be replaced. this will happen more often if the cycles are off balance or the washer is over loaded

The rubber boot is called the "door bellow". The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385210-replacing_door_bellow_kenmore_elite

If the bellow is not ripped or torn, you probably will NOT have to replace it. If the front bellow clamp (wire hoop) is the only thing that came loose, you will need to reseat the bellow around the door frame opening and reinsert the bellow clamp. The link explains this in Step 12 (I suggest you use a second set of hands to assist you). Now...if the bellow is torn, or if the clamp is damaged, you will need replacment parts. Let me know if you require additional assistance. I hope this helps you.

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.
