    Video Transcript: How to replace the door seal on a dishwasher


    IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS

    If your dishwasher is leaking from the front or you can see staining around the door, you may need to replace the door seal.

    To remove the old seal, start at the bottom corner and pull it out from its channel, working all the way around

    To fit the new seal, first fold it in half to find the centre, and starting from the bottom centre of the dishwasher, push it in all the way round.

    To make sure the seal's fitted properly, try closing the dishwasher door. If it doesn't close fully it means the seal isn't properly bedded in, so you'll need to try pushing it in more firmly.

    Finally, run a test cycle to make sure there are no leaks.
