Miele W864 Drum Spring Replace


Recommended Posts

I have bought and replaced the shock absorbers and also bought the 4 drum springs from Miele to change as well while I'm at it as the machine is 12+ years old and in good condition other than the shocks failing a while ago. I have opened up front side of washer and am intending to remove soap dispenser and attendant hoses for access to left side springs. Is there a special tool/knack for removing/replacing the springs. Do I have to lift the drum with ratchet strap to replace springs in which case can the door seal be left in place...

Sorry, those springs are so strong I’ve never heard of anyone replacing them.

I would try laying it down on its side so you can slide the drum without having to lift it.

The door seals will allow a lot of movement. It’s also too strong to damage by stretching. Should only need to disengage it if you needed to move outer drum quite a long way. Should just peel off the door frame though. No need to actually remove it.
