Question about Washing Machines
How do I take the front cover off to change the door seal. I have removed the ire holding the door seal to the rim of the front opening and believe there is another wire holding the back end of the seal to to drum rim. Do I need to tilt the washing machine on its side. The model is a SERVIS M9813S. Thanks
Hi, I'm not familiar with your particular model, but there is most likely a very similar type of clamp holding the back end of the seal to the static part of the drum. It is most unlikely that you will need to take off the front cover as on most machines only the back and top are removable. You might need to unfold the rubber to get to see the wire which is holding it on. If it is the type of clamp with a screw-tightening device, it might be rusted up and a new one might be called for.
If the old seal is damaged there is nothing to be lost by cutting away some of it with scissors so you can see better what you are doing.
When you get to the stage of putting the new seal on, try lubricating it with a bit of washing up liquid or soap to allow it to slip properly onto the casing and rum, and try to avoid tightening up with a twist in it - the soap should help. Remember to put the new one on in the reverse order to the way you got the old one off.
Hope this helps you a bit more. D
