I am recently retired appliance engineer of 20 years, the rear door seal clamp is generally nowadays a large thin spring that is slightly hidden by the concrete weights at the front of the drum, if thats the case the door seal will just come off with a good firm pull round the drum edge, fitting as a reverse of removal, place the door seal in the groove so it fits like it should, then stretch the spring and fit that into the outer groove round the lip of the door seal at the drum end, once that is done fit the seal on the front panel lip, then replace that clamp, check all is fitted securely before running machine its one of those jobs that hard to explain how to do it, hope i have helped a bit, its easier to work through the front door opening than from above? if i have please rate me thank you

The door seal seals between the glass door and the drum, so the inner clip is attached to the drum. If you have the lid off you should be able to see it but it may be hidden under the rubber edge of the seal itself. Run your fingers from the edge of the seal where it attaches to the glass door inwards towards the drum and you should feel the metal clip. It will be a very big hose clip style.

How to replace door seal on washing machine Bosch Advantixx ?

How to Replace the Door Seal on a Washing Machine - Bosch
One of the most common faults of a leaking washing machine is a faulty seal. Thankfully replacing such a component of your washing machine is not a difficult task.
In the above video, with the help of our experienced team, we explain how to replace the washing machine door seal, and below we've compiled a simple step-by-step guide which takes you through every point covered in our video.
Step 1: To remove the door seal on any make and model of washing machine, you'll need to remove the entire front panel, followed by the soap dispenser and fascia.
Removing the panel and fascia is easy to do, once you've undone the screws holding it in place, whilst the soap dispenser should just clip out of place.
Step 2: With these components removed, clip away the kick plate, put the drain hose to one side before removing the retaining clip which holds the door seal against the front of the machine. Once the clip has been removed just push the seal inside.
Step 3: Undo the four remaining screws holding the front of the machine on, before pulling the front of the machine and the door away from the machine.
Once the front of the machine is off, you should be able to see the spring retaining band going all the way around thedrum. This should be easy to pull off, enabling you to peal the whole old seal away; once you've removed the old seal this can be thrown away, although it is advisable to keep the retaining band, as this can be reused with the new seal.
Step 4: You'll now be ready to attach the new seal, when doing so make sure that the drain holes are positioned at six o'clock; once you've done this it is just a case of working the new seal onto the drum.
With the seal worked onto the drum, put the retaining spring into its little ridge, before giving the seal one final check.
Step 5: Reattach all the parts back to your washing machine, attaching the door seal to the front of the machine ensuring that it goes over the lip, before attaching the retaining band on the bottom and sides.
There you have it, a step-by-step guide to replacing the door seal on a washing machine, helping it to perform to its optimum level.

F16 error code on washing machine

The "F16" on a Bosch indicates the door is open / unlocked. If it's happening during a wash it would suggest either a faulty door lock, faulty wiring or worse, a faulty main control board.

The top of the rubber door seal has come away from the wire that holds it in how can I put it back

first remove the wire retainer (usually has a spring attached) then fold the rubber lip of the door seal back over the metal lip on the front of the machine when correclly positioned refit the retainer by starting at the recess where the spring sits and stetching it all around the seal making sure that it is sat in the groove where it fits, it is fairly easy to replacestarting from the spring and following around clockwise making sure that it is seated right as you reach the other end of the spring the spring will stretch allowing you to finish tucking the wire in and the spring should then tuck in to the recessed part of the seal

How do i fit a new door seal???

disconnect from mains not that easy first time. undo clip holding seal to cabinet. peel off seal and push inside drum remove top.i remember seal is held to tub by a giant jubilee clip but varies with model. undo clip and remove seal complete. fitting is more difficult lubricate slot that fits flange of tub with washing-up fluid - essential start at top fit an inch or so of slot onto tub flange. work in both directions forcing slot onto flange with thumbs as you go round. refit giant jubilee clip. refit seal to cabinet and refit cabinet clamp. test for leaks on rinse as water level is higher. this job is a knack so persevere
