to change the door seal you have to take the front boot ring off fold the door boot into the drum and undo the retaining clip around the door seals inner drum you can get a screwdriver in from the top a bit tricky but its the only way as the front is riveted on and wont come off like the older machines
Ok - I will answer my own problem seeing as though I have now fitted it!
1. remove door (2 screws)
2. There is a tensioned wire loop holding the front part of the boot seal in position. - prize off the plastic cap at the 11 o'clock position, all will become clear and you will be able to remove the wire loop.
3. Remove top of washing machine (2 allen screws behind caps at the front.
4. Remove soap dispenser draw and any screws holding the front control panel and top of the door.
5. Remove bottom front plinth (just pull it off) underneath are a couple of screws holding the front panel part of the machine, remove these.
6. Remove front of machine giving you access to the steel band which locks the other end of the boot seal in position. Slacken this band right back using a nut-spinner screwdriver. Pull off the old boot and clean the lip ready for fitting of the new boot.
7. Fit new boot seal using a squirt of washing up liquid as lubricant if needed (mine didn't) to reseat the seal.
8. Refit and tension steel band.
9. Re-assemble front panel, ease boot back into front lip position then refit wire loop using a suitable pair of pliers/molegrips to crimp the retaining plastic cap back in situ.
First switch off electrics , Remove door interlock , leave wires on .remove soap dispenser,remove front panel with controls 3 screws top of machine 3 screws bottom remove front casing you can now see door boot. remove sring note how boot came off refit is oposit to this noting top / bottom of seal ..Hope this some help-
hello if you take the top off the washer and look down inside you should see a metal ring with long screw and nut unscrew this so it's loose you should be able to pull the seal off .then on the front of the washer where the next part of the seal is theres another rmetal thin bit of wire . unscrew the platic clip and the wire should come off. then just pull the seal out of the washer and when you put the new seal on fit it the same way you took it off good luck ps get back to me if you get stuck

your cold water valve will be your problem or you've turned the water supply off, if the supply is not off put the machine on to the final rinse if it fills it will be the main rinse valve gone. The cold water valve is a double one with 2 solaniods. Unplug the machine turn water supply off remove fill hose
there are 2 screws keeping the top on, remove them lift the lid off.undo the screws that keep the valve on, take note wiring and remove pull the black hoses off, replace with new one. The resistance of the valve will be around 3.4 kohms
Suggestion: Try cleaning your outlet filter. This needs periodic cleaning, according to your usage. Refer to user's manual re. the cleaning.
When it is the rinse problem it usually is the filter block.
assuming that you didfi not unwire ther door lock, the problem is probably just that the door seal just needs bedding in and you should be able to start by closing more firmly and pushing in till the door lock catches. did you properly seat the door boot on the cabinet?
