Indesit Washing Machine Door Seal

Guys,

My neighbour had a leaky door seal with her indesit machine. She has taken the old door seal off and got a replacememt, but she, her fellla and I cannot figure out how to fit the new one. We been trying for 5 hours in total today.

I have searched via google for help but got nowhere.

Anybody here had any experience with this, and got any tips to assist.

Thanks In Advance.

How about this:
Quote:
With the power off, remove lid. The retaining wire around the front lip must be released, then the clamp band around the drum end slackened. THEN, the door seal can pulled out through the door opening. Refitting requires patience - fit drum side and clamp band first.

I had a search through a few threads on the ukwhitegoods forum (a brill forum btw) and i reckon you've got a bit of a task on there But apparently it's possible

Re: Indesit Washing Machine Door Seal

£60, You have been done. Reckon the going rate must be £25-30. I've fitted 1000's in the past... £60 is steap supplied and fitted. You could have had a new indesit washer for £150.

I think you need to post the name of the company that fitted it so that other members of the forum don't use them.

{edit} I see the op might not have got it sorted If you want to pm me I'll explain how to do it.

Re: Indesit Washing Machine Door Seal

This post brought back bad memories.

One Indesit is one too many.

Re: Indesit Washing Machine Door Seal

Fitting door seals is a acquired art you can only learn from doing it.

Sometimes a little lubricant might help but you should use the proper formulated "rubber grease" stuff. Washing up liquid can seriously shorten the life of a seal.

Sometimes the right sized socket on a very long or maybe a couple of extensions might be necessary to get past a front fitted concrete or metal counterbalance weight in order to loosen the boot's retaining clamp. You usually access this from the top by removing the lid. Of couse you get the odd machine where some fool, in initial assembly, has arranged for the clamp to be in such a position that the drum has to be removed to make it accessable.

Skinned knuckles, tired fingers and aching knees are par for the course but once used to, it's regarded (in most cases) as a bread and butter job.

Ignore this post, you should not use washing up liquid on the seal with the exception of hotpoint 95 series clamps on the front part of the seal.

It does not cause any concerns with regards longevity.

Smile Re: Indesit Washing Machine Door Seal

Hi
I read your notes on the washer door seal hoping to learn how to attach it but was so down hearted no-one really answered the question so I called the repair man. Going back to the problem I had one last idea and wedged a piece of wood to hold the spring in place whilst I pulled the spring round. Hey presto it worked now I have to cancel the engineer before he comes out. One up for the ladies.
