Hi can anyone advise?

Trying to get the front panel off but it appears welded on.

I've removed the top panel and the front control facea and unscrewed every screw i found(10 in total).

I need it off to change a torn rubber seal. Help????

Oh by the way I did contact Hotpoint, was put on hold and transferred to several departments, before finally being told....they no longer give technical advice!!!! Awesome!!!!

It doesn't come off, it is welded on!!!!!

To change the rubber seal. Tilt the machine back, to make more room at the front, and just get your hand in to put the seal on. Have patience, it's a sod of a job!!!!

To put the retaining spring back on. Put a screwdriver in the hole at the door catch. This will pin/hold the spring in place whilst you feed it on bit by bit.

Enjoy!!!!!
