Decided to change door seal for my indesit. Managed to remove old one, that was easy enough but now can't get on the new one on inside drum. All videos it looks very easy but when I try to then it keeps popping off before all sides are on, not to mention probably will be even bigger struggle to put on the band on inside.

 

Anyways, wanted to remove front panel so I would get more access to drum and hopefully have it easier to put on door seal but I can't find a way to remove panels. It's almost like all of them are welded together. Remove all the screws I could find on front. but I can see in many parts around side the front panel is welded/glued(no screws or rivets). So right now have no clue what to do but have a mechanic over that will struggle for me...but I'm a stubborn one and want to do this myself.

Many front panels for washing machines are welded on these days. If they are designed to come off you should be able to see removable screws usually at the front at the bottom of the panel. Some may have screws at the top too under the control panel. You might be able to see the left one if you take out the soap drawer. 

Make sure it's all dry, once the seal has been pushed firmly onto the drum it should hold and you just keep fitting it on all the way round. A door seal isn't normally difficult to put on, but I have seen some Indesit ones which were ludicrously difficult with virtually no access for your hands.
