Reattaching the gasket on a Samsung WF 70F5E0Z4W

Recommended Posts

After some repairwork on my Samsung WF 70F5E0Z4W I have a problem that from what I could tell isn't covered by the washing machine help guide or by searching through the forum.

I am having trouble reattaching the gasket to the washing machine because: 1 The outer part of the gasket is glued to the front panel. 2 The area between where the gasket should go and the cement-block weights is about 2 cm. This combines to make is very hard to attach the gasket and to check the seal.

Using a pair of clamps to work my way from the bottom to the top by clamping, moving and camping Again seemed to work but water started to leak pretty fast during a short test run of the washing machine.

Do you fine folk have any advice, tip or suggestions for tools that might help me get the gasket in its proper place?

P.S: I can't take any photos of the washing machine right now but I'll try to get some posted this evening.

Edit: Forgot to add the full code of the machine, WF 70F5E0Z4W.

WHOPS, I made a pretty big mistake. Somehow I missed the retaining band on the outer seal of the washer.

Had a closer look and finally noticed the metal band.

Using a video guide I was able to get the gasket sealed properly in about 5 minutes.

I'll leave the original post unedited unless ya'll think I should change it.

Thanks for the update. I was waiting for the photos :-) glad you managed it in the end. Changing the door seal can actually be very difficult these days. The difficulty varies from model to model and brand to brand. I remember the good old days when I could replace Hoover washing machine door seal in about 2 minutes flat.
