Door seal replacement


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hi! I recently moved in a new house, and the seal on the washing machine was really moldy. I tried cleaning it but then resorted to getting a new one. Having someone do it is really expensive, so i bought the seal and replaced it myself. The wm model is indesit WIXL163UK by the way. 

Problem is, when I try to close the door, the bottom drags under the seal, and it takes some force to close it. It seems like the seal is too thick, but the item is correct, so I must have made a mistake in replacing the seal. I don't want to start the machine for fear I've done something wrong. 

Does anyone have any idea what I could've done wrong? I hope I've been clear enough. Thank you!

Hi. The door seems to have dropped. Is the door hinge loose or broken?
