Hiya,

Nightmare machines to change a seal on I'm afraid.

.

On the front panel, you simply pull the plastic retainer off.

Then, twist it to open it.

.

On the tub side of the seal, you pull it off and then retrieve the spring from the groove in the seal.

.

Then, the nightmare begins, trying to fit the door seal through the door aperture.

.

Once the seal is onto the outer tub, you have to fit the spring into the groove around the seal.

.

The only tip I can give you for this, is tilt the machine rearward so the drum falls back.

It gives you an inch or two extra working space.

.

It's a very difficult seal to change.

.

Good luck with it, hope this helps

Thanks
