    Hi, hope somebody can help me out.

    Ive inherited this washing machine at a new house we've bought but the door seal needs replacing as its pretty rotten and covered in mold, other than that the machine works perfectly.
    Does anyone kjnow how easy/hard it is to replace the seal on this model? It looks like I might need to take the front off, but any advice would be appreciated!

    Ps I have the new seal, just needs fitting!

    Thanks

    Jon

    I generally replace these with the front on.
    They can be a little fiddly at times but they are not too bad, just don't get frustrated if it is not going on, walk away and come back after a break lol.

    Watered down washing up liquid makes a great lube for the inner part of the door seal to get it over the lip on the drum. Just do a cold rinse wash before using it after to ensure you get no foaming etc from it.
