Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries
I doubt it but I can talk you through it when you have the time ~ Ian
I have time now
OK you will need a couple of flat screwdrivers, a cross headed and perhaps a 20 torx to hand before we start ping when ready to go
ive got the panel off an all
OK have you taken the front retaining band off? That's the wire that holds the outer seal to the front panel?
yea I have
OK hook the blade of one of the flat screwdrivers around the spring retainer that holds the seal to the tub front and lever the spring off.
that's seal out
now note how the seal actually fits onto the front of the drum and refit the new one carefully noting that there is a drain hole at the bottom centre of the seal that must match up with the hole in the tub front ~ once you have this lined up, work from the bottom to the top refitting the seal to the tub ~
do I put the seal on first without putting back spring on
the one aroung the tub
yes get the seal on first making sure that it is correctly seated on the tub front. Once you are happy with this come back to me ~
ok bak in 5mins
that's the seal on
No worries I'll go grab a tea
Ok this is where you can do with a spare set of hands ~ have you got someone who can help here?
nope lol just me
OK take the spring retainer and starting at the bottom bit by bit stretch it around the seal in the grove at the back of the seal, you will probably find that the seal comes off a couple of times ~ just refit the seal and start again until you have the spring around the back. If you have a short fuse get help its very frustrating ~~
ok back n a few
I have that done but it feels rather slack
are you sure that you have got the seal on correctly it is usually a really tight fit with this spring band
I think so
but I can jus pull the whole seal out with spring on
should I be abe to see spring if I press the seal back gently
Ok just clarify, when you pull the seal forward are you saying that the rear of the seal comes off the tub ?? Secondly what is the part number of the new seal that you got ?
yea that's it
OK give me the part number of the new seal?
I had to take it ff cuz the mould grew on it
jus using same seal
will I take a pic an send you
Pic wont help I need you to send me the part number of the new seal so that I can see if you have got the correct one
im using the same seal
OK well you have to start again and get it correctly fitted to the drum front, if you have it correctly fitted it wont feel lose, remember it fits both on the inside of the drum lip and also around the outside of the lip in a U form with the drum front inside the U
ok ill be back in a min
yes that's it I did have it around the drum right
goin to put rear spring in now
got it sorted thankyou
OK can you now rate my help to you by using the smiley faces below, this allow me to shut the job down ~ many thanks, ***** ***** need more help ping me back ~ Ian
