How to Replace Beko washing Machine Door Seal

If your washing machine is leaking from the front of the door, or the door seal is torn, warped or damaged, or mold has built up at the bottom of the seal and it's beyond cleaning, it´s time to replace it for a new one.

It can be used on all these Beko models:  

BEKO WM5100S - Ser.No.7148881100; Ser.No.7148881200, BEKO WM5100W, BEKO WM5120S, BEKO WM5120W, BEKO WM5121S, BEKO WM5121W, BEKO WM5140S, BEKO WM5140W, BEKO WM6103W, BEKO WM6120S, BEKO WM6123S, BEKO WM6123W, BEKO WM6133S, BEKO WM6133W, BEKO WM6143S, BEKO WM6143W, BEKO WM6167S, BEKO WM6167W, BEKO WM6355W, BEKO WMC61W, BEKO WMC62W, BEKO WMC64W

Here is the step by step procedure on the process:
• First thing we need to do is disconnect the appliance from the power supply, and remove the two screws in the back of the machine that hold the top panel.
• Then remove the soap drawer and the screw that holds the facial panel.
• To remove the control panel from the machine you need, with the help of a flat blade screw driver, release the three plastic pins that hold it to the chassis of the machine. Be careful on doing this, because they can easily break, just take your time and do it one by one.
• The next thing to do is remove the kick strip or plinth from the bottom of the machine to access the screws that hold the front facial panel
• Take off the outer door seal retaining band or spring with the help of a flat blade screw driver, and peel the seal of the lip, and tuck it inside the drum.
• Remove the two screws that hold the lock
• Unscrew the three screws at the bottom of the facial panel, and now you are ready to release the front facial panel of the chassis. Just slide it downwards and it will come loose easily. Remember that at the top there are small plastic lugs that fit into the panel, don´t lose them!
• The next thing to do is remove the retaining spring that holds the gasket to the drum with the help of a flat blade screw driver
• Peel the seal from the drum and do remember that at the top of the drum there is a small mark that indicates the correct position of the seal.
• It´s a good idea to give a good clean around the outer drum; just wipe all the scale and scum that builds up over time.
• Now we´re ready to fit the new seal, align the seal with the small mark at the top of the drum and the draining holes at the bottom, make sure the seal marks line up on the drum this is very important.
• When fitting the new seal, it´s a good idea to use a little bit of fairy liquid just to help you slide the seal to its correct position (see video for this), and also with the help of a clamp, secure the seal into its place and then just slowly work around the drum. Make sure that the seal fits correctly on the lip of the drum.
• After fitting the new seal, inspect it for creases and if its correctly aligned with the top mark of the drum, if needed, just push it yourself to its place (see video for this)
• Tuck the gasket inside the drum and put back again the retaining spring that holds the gasket to the drum, with the help of a clamp.
• The next step is to replace the front facial panel of the machine, remember to align the holes with the lugs on the chassis, and don’t forget the little pins at the top!
• Fit the three screws at the bottom and the kick strip or plinth.
• Now just fit the door lock that is held on with two screws and unfold the seal from inside the drum. Carefully just put the seal under the lip of the front panel, and replace the seal retaining band or spring.
• The control panel goes into place by just pressing it against the chassis of the washing machine, and you are ready to fit the screw from the soap drawer.
• Insert the soap drawer and the top panel of the washing machine
• Now the only things you need to do is connect the machine up, select a wash program and slide a piece of paper underneath the washing machine to inspect for any leaks!

The Causes of Black Marks & Mildew or mold on Washing Machine Door Seal and how to stop this happening

The bacteriological build-up in your machine is due to poor cleaning and damp environment over the days that the machine is not being used. It really is that simple and, all too often down to bad maintenance.
What happens is that new type of washing machines use less water to wash and are left for too long without performing a maintenance wash which will allow bacteria to build up in the washing machine which will grow very happily in the warm damp conditions which will eventually lead to what is shown here on the door seal or door rubber as some people call it.
Also using solely liquid detergents, liquid tablets, color only powders (or liquid) as well as most of the "alternative" products like Soap nuts, Eco-balls NOT contain any bleach and will not remove any bacteria effectively. Should you wish to use these alternative products you will also have to add bleach to prevent "greying" of your whites over time as well as other problems.
Whipping the door seal after each wash will help no end leaving the machine door slightly ajar when not in use also massively helps; this allows the seal to dry out and hinders the growth of bacteria inside the washing machine's drum as well as the door seal.

    I have a WTG 721 M1W machine and need to replace the door seal, I’ve managed to disassemble as far as the front panel, but this differs as it’s one whole solid panel without the kick strip, do I still slide it all downwards or it is held on by push from front lugs and need to be leavered off? (the front electric have been taken off)
