Ok going of the parts you have fitted I know what kind of washer you have.
To start off the white ping pong ball goes into the sump hose that goes to the bottom of the drum.
As to the door seal then you need remove the front panel again to refit the seal as it goes on the lip of the plastic drum not the inner meta drum.
You will need to remove the door seal from the front cabinet of the washer to be able to fit this seal.
Ive found a clip on you tube that shows how to fit the door seal. So copy and paste the link below and then you can see how its done from there.
If you need anymore info just get back to me.
