SOURCE: bOSCH WASHING MACHINE RETAINING SPRING FOR FRONT DOOR GASKET

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.

SOURCE: bOSCH WASHING MACHINE RETAINING SPRING FOR FRONT DOOR GASKET

I mounted the ring by myself. Here's how:
1. Get a small piece of 2x4 that's longer than the spring will be when it's expanded. You basically have to stretch it less than an inch.
2. Nail two 4d nails to the piece of 2x4 close to the long edge. Again, about an inch or so wider than the compressed spring. Nail them so only about 1/4 of an inch is exposed.
3. File the head of the nails so they are relatively smooth to allow the ring to slide off easily.
Note: Wear eye protection just in case the spring snaps.
4. Hook one end of the ring (not the spring) to one of the nails and use a pliers to stretch the spring to hook the other end of the ring to the other nail.
5. Set the ring into the gasket groove making sure the spring is in the 6:00 position.
6. Hold the spring in place with one hand and gently push it off on of the nails. The other nail should come out easily.

This may take a couple of tries.

Bosch Exxcel 1200 (WF02464GB) not heating


The machine only heats when it takes the detergent, all three rinses are cold only and this time of year the load will be very cold when it comes out. If the machine is not taking extra time (like a hour or two) longer to run a cycle, then there is no problem.
If you want to check the heater is functioning, try this
1 Put the dial to off
2 press and hole the start button whilst turning the dial one click to left (easycare 30)
3 release start and either two of the progression lights are lit or if it has a diplay should show 8.88 or 0.00
4 turn dial to 90 cotton, take the the long way round ie not thro the off or you will have to start again
5 press start
6 drum will fill and the heater will come on, wait a few minutes and if the heater is working ok you will hear a noise like a kettle boiling.
The drum does not turn during the test to allow you to hear this without the movement of the drum obscuring the sound.
If it sounds ok, cool. put dial to off, wait a second then select drain to get rid of the water in the drum
All the best

Leaking- could be a hole in door gasket


First step with any leak find out exactly where the water is getting out if possible. You may find a gasket that is not sealing or damaged. Sometimes the door is not closing tightly enough against the gasket and will need to be adjusted. There are a number of other places on this machine that can leak thus the need to know exactly where it is coming from.

DOOR GASKET DRAINAGE HOLES


This is a poor design. Mine became so stained that I replaced it. Unfortunatly the replacement part is for a newer model and the retrofit is a little different than the original. The seal didn't let the door close all the way and I have to push against it to get it to lock. I am hoping the gasket will loosen up over time. Even with that the drain is a water collector. I spray mine with a mildew product after washes, or leave the door open so it will dry out, and I occasionally wipe it with a rag. I hope Bosch changes their design.
