The door seal or do you mean the rubber boot that goes from outter tub to the outer frame simply seat the seal all the way around into the groved slot on the rubber boot and then attach the top of the retaining ring first and slide the left side on while holding the corner of the right side move your screwdriver from the top left furthest point in a couter clockwise direction until the metal retaining ring is half seated you can see down the bottom there is a small spring that allows the tension on the other side you would hold with a finger the last point that you seated the retaining ring and start on the top right side with your flat screwdriver and work your way clock wise until you came to the are with the spring then just put your screwdriver in the area where the spring is located and pry towards you walla this piece is also called door bellows to others as well it is termed as a rubber boot where I am currently if you have any further questions message me back and please remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick

Hi Geoff, If you remove the band around your door seal and then you will be able to just remove part of the seal frrom the casing. I am sure you will manage to refit door quite easy then. should take about 5 minutes then.

Husband has 2feet of plastic garden hose stuck in gas tank of 1997 Jeep Cherokee....and it will not come out..help ???


You will need to access and remove the filler neck of the tank. The hose will not come out the way it went in. Has to come out the other way. Remove the trim hiding the filler neck, remove the neck by loosening the hose clips and drawing it our toward the outside of the vehicle together with the sealing grommet.. Remove garden hoise and refit neck and trim

Mouldy Door Seal


Use tilex to remove the mold. Then see what happens. If the mold comes back right away it may be a problem with the rubber gasket not seating as it should. Let me know. And please rate my solution. thanks.

Hole in door gasket of a Hotpoint 9901w washer dryer.


It is quite involved to change the seal, as requires a partial strip down, if the hole is not very big, then you can do a fairly good repair using a bicycle punture repair kit..
Remove the plastic clip that holds the clamp ring on the front of the washer seal at the top, remove the clamp ring, take note how it is fitted, then pull seal off front of washer, and fit patch on underside of seal, refit seal and clamp,and job done!!!!
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.
Thanks.

How to fix anew door seal on a Zanussi FL1081


turn off atmains
remove the clamp that secures seal to cabinet and peel away the seal.
the seal is held onto the tub by a large spring. at bottom, pull hard down and out and seal will come away.
on new seal, lubricate the slot that goes onto the drum rim with washing up fluid.
start the slot onto the drum rim at the top and work your way round in both directions pressing slot onto rim. this is quite hard work and you may need several attempts.
when slot is on rim all the way round, refit the spring into the outer slot of the seal. this is quite difficult and an extra pair of hands helps
refit seal onto cabinet rim - this is easy and refit outer clamp.
test on rinse cycle for leaks as the water level is higher.
water will foam till the washing up fluid is washed away
note that the seal has a specific way up indicated by an arrow
