SOURCE: leaking door seal

make sure you take the model and serial #'s to an appliance parts house to ensure the proiper replacement part. Also if you will soak the gasket in hot water for an hour it will make it more plyable to install onto unit. If you pull back gently on the current gasket you will see the connection screws and how to remove them.
Hope this helped you

Whirlpool Front Loading Duet Washing Machine Plastic at drum front shredding


i think your talking about the rubber door seal????
you can change this yourself,,,under the seal on the case is a wire spring unhook it and the door seal will fold inside the washer,,,on the inner drum you will find the other wire spring undo this as well and pull the old door seal out through the hole in the door,,,the new seal is fitted to the iner drun first so you need to turn the new seal inside out to fit it,,,push the seal into the washer and fit the inner wire first then unfold the seal and fit it over the outer door so you can fit the wire spring,,,
easy after you have fitted a fuw 100?

The small rubber strip on the bottom inside of the front door (attached to the door) has corroded and water is pouring out during the first cycle is slimy and filthy. Is it replaceable?


It is time to change the sealing gasket and you must get a rreplacement from the Electrolux service dealer so as to change. there are also many types of this gasket suiting the origianl which can be found in hardware shops that can be fitted on to the door.Take a sample along.
Use a good brush , clean with some kerosene/diesel then use jet of water/detergent to clean the gasket, the gasket fitting slots before the new ones are fitted.
Hope this helps.

How to change door seal on Zanussi ZJ1218 washing machine


Hello,
I hope you have small hands,and you are pretty handy with them cos these seals are tricky if its your first.
First remove the nylon clip around the front of seal it will pull off from bottom.then release outer rubber,then you have to just get your hand or fingers to pull at inner rubber,there is a spring around inner rubber lip but to make things awkward there is also a concrete counterweight around this.Once you have old seal out get new one and wipe some fairy liquid around inner lip to refit make sure pointy arrow is at the top.This is the tricky bit and hard to explain but you can only do it by feel and keep trying to get a part of inner lip over casing lip once it starts it can go easy or hard you may have to try a couple of times until you can feel it is on all the way round.Once on the spring has to be fitted its also tricky,start by door switch and put a long screwdriver thru. hole for door catch try to hold with knee or get help.Work it around keep screwdriver in until spring is nearly on keep hand on spring then gently try to remove screwdriver make sure spring on fully,now fit outer seal lip and fit nylon clamp.You may find it easier to tilt machine back slighty.I do this for a living and it can go easy or hard.Best of luck.

Rubber door seal replacement on my Front Load Washer


OPEN THE DOOR
THERE IS A WIRE AND SPRING CLAMP AROUND THE SEAL, PULL BACK THE SEAL WITH YOUR FINGERS AND YOU WILL SEE IT
TAKE OFF THE CLAMP
FOLD THE SEAL BACK INTO THE DRUM
YOU WILL SEE ( OR FEEL ) A CLAMP AROUND THE SEAL ON THE DRUM
SLACKEN OFF THE SCREW HOLDING IT UNTIL YOU CAN PULL OFF THE SEAL.
FIT A NEW ONE IN REVERSE ORDER.

HINT- WIPING WITH LIQUID DETERGENT WILL MAKE IT EASIER TO FIT THE NEW SEAL.
HINT2 - YOU MAY NEED 4 PAIR OF HANDS TO FIT THE SPRING CLAMP

Not a hard task if you coat rims with liquid detergent before trying to install new seal.
Using thumb go slowly around rim working seal all the way back.
Replacing main spring can be done by working bottom to top and then hold left side of spring in place while you pull right side in with long nose pliers.A couple of minutes difficult work and your 90% done.
Care is required so as not to puncture seal,
Main point is to ensure seal is fully seated before applying spring.
Having machine laid on its back makes the job so much easier.

This job took an hour and 30 minutes, the hour spent checking the internet first.
Good luck

Rubber Seal not Sealing


This seems to be a common problem with front loaders, but there is an easy fix if you follow these simple steps:

1. The rubber seal fits over the lip around the door opening. Carefully seat the rubber seal all the way around the door opening first.
2. Then, place the wire hoop in the crease where the rubber seal fits over the lip. Insert the hoop with the spring pointing at the bottom. Starting at the top and work your way around the door opening to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions.
3. While holding the hoop in place, stretch the spring apart enough to allow the rest of the hoop to snap into the crease at the bottom of the door opening. You may need a second pair of hands to help you with this.

 Good luck and I hope this helps you.

How to replace rubber door seal


when you open the door you find a this wire clamp round the edge of the door seal, this just comes off with little force, this has to go back on obviously so don't bend it, the door seal just folds back on itself, the clamp on the drum end is often a large thin spring, and that also just pulls off, the seal then also comes away with a little pull, the new seal is fitted with the groove either side of the drum lip, then the spring is put back, take note how all is removed before working on it? the front of the seal is fitted then the wire, close the door to check a tight but easy fit, check for any leaks and correct fitting before leaving machine unattended any time, sound worse that what it actually is, if i have helped rate me,
