Bosch WFO2866 Drum rubbing on door seal, bearings OK, drum OK

Recommended Posts

Have searched FAQs and topics, but found no reference to this problem.

Old seal distinctly worn. Slight grey rubber deposits on drum rim

If seal removed, drum rotates smoothly. No bearing noise. No distortion of drum opening. Drum lies centrally in tank opening.

New seal fitted, then drum dificult to rotate because of friction with seal. Drum seems to be forward of the correct position.

Drum edge aligns precisely with edge of tank opening.

Any guidance welcome.

If the drum catches on a new door seal I'd suspect either the wrong seal has been fitted or it isn't fitted properly. If you are happy the seal is identical to the original the first thing you need to do is remove the new one and refit it making sure it's pushed cleanly onto the drum. Also make sure the drain holes are at the 6 O'clock position.
