Dismantling internal (second) clamp
Before removing the second coat of washing machine, you need to carefully examine the cuffs for the label to install. Thanks to this label, the cuff is located in a strict position in relation to Baku. This ensures hermetic closure of the hatch and the competent water removal. In the event that it was not possible to find a label, it should be noted on the rubber band its location in relation to Baku. Such a little thing will be important when a new washing machine can be installed. Then the gum released from the worn gum is required to be highly cleaned from accumulated pollution and carefully lubricate with soap solution. When the grooves are slippery, it will be easier to replace the cuff to the new.
Motor Machine Cuff Replacement
In case of damage to the cuff hatch washing machine, it may be necessary to replace it. The function of the cuff is to hermetically combine the tank of the machine with its front wall (front model), or the upper part (vertical model).
From which the hatch cuffs are damaged.The rubber cuff damage can be of different kind, but it almost always leads to a leakage and the impossibility of further operation of the washing machine. The main causes of the leakage cuffs are:. the heartiness and wear of rubber;. rubbing the door cuffs about various parts inside the case;. mold and fungus;. excessive passion for lemon acid and other strong cleaning agents that tear the rubber;. washing coarse objects (metal things entering. sneakers and other);. coarse extraction of washaned things from the hatch and damage to the root of the hatch cuff.
Lyuka’s cuff removal.Note that almost all cuffs on front models can be replaced from the front, without disassembling the machine and without removing the tank. It saves time and labor, but at the same time requires patience and dexterity of fingers. Before replacing, make sure that the new cuff is really identical to the one that stands on the washing machine.
Remove the first clamp by the outer edge of the hatch cuff is attached to the front wall of the washing machine using its curved shape and plastic clamp or a steel wire that can have a different tension type. Wire is tensioned with screw, spring and jack, with hooks. The plastic clamp of the cuff is fixed and tensioned with latches.
To remove the plastic clamp you need to pull the place where the latches are jar. To remove a wire clamp, you need to either promote the screw, or carefully pinched and delay the spring screwdriver, or partially break the hooks on the junction. After removing the first clamp, we remove the cuff with the front wall of the washing machine.
Remove the second internal clamp before removing the second clamp It is necessary to find a label to install the cuff, because if the new installation is shifted, the water flow to the tank will be disturbed, and the tightness of the hatch door will be disturbed. The label is on the cuff itself and you need to check its presence on the old and on the new. If the label is not found, you need to use a marker or marker and mark the location of the old cuff relative to the tank.
The inner clamp of the cuff door of the hatch is hermetically attached to the front of the tank. Often this clamp is hidden and unparalle in front. In order to consider it, you can remove the top cover of the washing machine and look at the pot from above. Clamps for fastening cuffs to Baku, on the front washing machines are, or a stained wire stretched bolt or jack or a spring.
Remove the wire clamp, you can unscrew the bolt or applying special rounds. Spring Clamp can be pushed with a flat screwdriver and stretch out.After removing both cumshes, the cuff is easily separated from the edge of the tank.
Preparing for the installation of the cuff. So that during the installation process, when replacing there were no problems, you need to carefully clean the edge of the tank, for which the new cuff will be attached. Before installing a new cuff, you need to abundantly lubricate the edge of the tank and the deepening of the cuff for fastening to the Baku, soap solution. Then when installing the rubber will slide, and the cuff quickly enter the tank with the edge of the tank. 4. Installation of the cuff.The most difficult thing is in replacement. pull the cuff to the tank. First you need to combine the installation label so that the cuff displacement does not work. Start tension better from the top of the tank.
To install in the cuff, there is a certain recess, which when equipped to the tank, fixes the cuff. Take a cuffs better from the inside and putting it with thumbs in the circle on the edge of the tank. If this edge is pre-perfectly cleaned and lubricated with soap solution, then the attachment should take place without any difficult.
When most of the cuff is whatened, the stretched area remains, which can start sliding with further movement on one side. To prevent the location, you need to continue the installation of the cuff from two sides towards each other with two hands. First, it may be inconvenient, but you need to try to understand the course of the cuff movement and, pulling, bring the installation to the end.
After tensioning the cuff check the landing site and possible flaws in the work. If there are sections, where the cuff is not fully whatened, it is necessary to fix it, they need to be corrected.
Installing an internal clamp (how to wear a clamp) After the correction, proceed to the installation of the inner clamp. If the clamp is tensioned by a bolt, its installation is reduced to an increase in the diameter by unscrewing the bolt, the nozzle on the cuff and tension of the bolt.
If spring type clamp, then it is necessary that it is fixed in the starting point of the tension. Working alone, to fix the spring, you need to carefully go to the stop flat screwdriver, through the hole in the locking of the hatch. Thus, putting the spring to a screwdriver and stretching it, you need to gradually wear a spring in a circle, pushing it inside into the landing place.
The complexity can cause the last segment of the tension, because after two-thirds of the spring of the spring are caught, the tension angle on the screwdriver changes, and the spring strive to fly. Then everyone will have to begin again. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure good fixation of the spring in the screwdriver area, without weakening the tension, pressing it to the Baku and laying in place of landing.
How to replace the hatch cuffs at Indesit washing machines
Before starting replacing the indesit washing machine cuffs, it is necessary to disconnect it from electricity. Repair may be needed in case of damage or cluster of mold.
Changing the rubber hatch rubber sealer without disassembling the typewriter and removal of the tank. Since its outer edge is fixed on the front corps of the machine, and the inner on the tank, then start the removal of the old cuff must be in front.
The photo shows the disconnection of the door, but this is not necessary. Enough to open the hatch and access to the cuff will be provided. If you still use it more convenient to remove it, then you need to unscrew the two fastening screws, move the whole design up, slightly pull on yourself and the door will be disconnected from the housing with the loop.
To the front wall of the cuff is fastened with a metal clamp, which is a wire in the form of a circle, the ends of which are connected by a segment of the springs for tension. To disconnect the clamp you need to find the spring on it after the perimeter of the circle and pry it with a flat screwdriver. Then, shifting it aside, remove the clashes.Starting from any site and moving around the perimeter, to disconnect manually the outer edge of the cuff from the front wall. After that, you need to get additional access to the inside. To do this, you need to remove the top cover of the washing machine. The view of the tank and its connection with the cuff, which is fixed on it using a solid spring clamp.
To disconnect it is enough to take hand for the seal anywhere, closer to Baku, and gently pull it out with a clamp.Before installing a new cuff, it is important to compare it with the old to additionally, visually verify the similarity of their size. Then find and understanding for yourself the seats on which it will be fixed, as well as the tops of the upper and lower point:
- The upper point is almost always marked by a triangular protrusion and docks when installed with a tank mark.
- Landmark for the lower point, in addition to the same marks, there may be holes for running water in the cuff itself.
ATTENTION! It is very important to install on the marks. Otherwise, when installing a cuff can be shifted and during subsequent work it is possible to damage.
Installation You need to start from the top edge, aligning the protrusion cuff with a tank mark. Holding the top area with one hand, another hand fully correct the rubber sealant inside the case. Next, starting on top and moving around the perimeter in any direction, to completely put on the inner edge of the cuff on the tank of the washing machine.
For the convenience of mounting, the review is better to carry out over the top, through the opening of the lid (photo in the center). After connecting to the Baku of the inside of the cuff, it is necessary to carefully check the alignment of marks. If their displacement occurred during the installation, then you need to be lazy, remove the cuff and reinstall the installation. Next follows the installation of spring clamp. This is the most difficult casing. For convenience, its external edge is desirable to wrap in. And to disconnect the hatch lock by twisting two screws, as shown in the photo. Next follows the installation of spring clamp. This is the most difficult casing. For convenience, its external edge is desirable to wrap in. And to disconnect the hatch lock by twisting two screws, as shown in the photo. In the hole to lock the screwdriver and hook a spring clamp for it (on the photo on the left). It is necessary so that in the process of pulling the clamp on the cuff, he does not jump, and remained fixed.
Pulling the clamp is needed around the perimeter in any direction like up and down. When tensioning, you need to constantly monitor the position of the screwdriver, especially if the works are carried out alone, without helper. Since in case of loosening tension or other sharp movements, a screwdriver can shift to the side and then the spring is jumping out of her.
When the spring is completely hope and is in the deepening of the landing place on the cuff, then holding it, you need to slowly stretch the screwdriver from under the spring.
Next, you need to forgive your fingers all the spring around the perimeter and make sure that it was right everywhere in the deepening, and the edges of the cuffs are accurately adjacent to Baku and not crumpled. Loose springs need to be fixed.
ATTENTION! In the event that the spring fell in a loose place of the cuff, leakage can occur.
Also at this stage it is desirable to check the tightness of the cuff connection with a tank:
- For this bucket to dial water into the tank, but so that it does not flow out of it.
- If there is no leakage, then the spring is installed correctly.
- If leaks appear, then set the place where the tightness is impaired, drain the water, eliminate the malfunction to check the tightness.
Before you begin to secure the outer edge of the seal, we return to the place of the hatch lock and fix it with two screws. The front edge of the cuff is bending a certain shape, which corresponds to the bending on the edge of the opening hole of the machine. Bending the front edge, as shown in the extreme photo of the photo, you need to put it on the body of the machine and so throughout the perimeter. Before you begin to secure the outer edge of the seal, we return to the place of the hatch lock and fix it with two screws. The front edge of the cuff is bending a certain shape, which corresponds to the bending on the edge of the opening hole of the machine. Bending the front edge, as shown in the extreme photo of the photo, you need to put it on the body of the machine and so throughout the perimeter. When the cuff finally, I hope in front, you need to view and try it throughout the perimeter in order to push finally in the landocation. At the last stage, the assembly remains to wear an outdoor clamp. Do it from the first time is not always easy, since the spring is not easy to stretch from hand. Nevertheless, there are two ways to plant a clamp:
To secure the cuff, you need to install the clamp. You need to start with internal. To suit the spring clamp, it is necessary at the starting point of the tension, it is fixed. To do this, you can use scolding by inserting it into the hole that blocks the hatch. When the spring is dressed on the diverse, stretch the claw and gradually around the circumference of the hatch, push it inside until he falls on his place.
With a spring, the installation occurs as difficulty as with a cuff. Odja clamp slightly more than half the tension angle changes, creating difficulty in further installation. But a little adapting and manifesting an exposure, the internal clamp can be completely dressed.
If the washing machine is an old model, then pull the clamp only with the help of round bugs. Since, on old models, Khomutov has no springs and screws for adjustment.
Repair of the rubber seal
There are such situations where the gum on the drum has deteriorated, and the other cannot be installed for various reasons. In such a situation, you can try to restore the seal.
In which cases are required?
It is advisable to repair the cuffs in the following cases:
- If there is no specialized center in the city where you can buy spare parts, users have to order a seal in the online store. Please note that in this case, delivery can take several weeks, during which you have to do without an aggregate.
- If there are no funds for the purchase of a new cuff, and the old one is damaged.
Even durable material with time is wearing with a constant influence of chemistry and high temperature. If there are not too much damage, then the rubber can still be stuck.
note! Even if there is only one hole on the cuff, the patch will prevent leakage only for a while. Therefore, if possible, you should install a new gum as early as possible.
Most often damage can be noticed in the inside of the gum, so it should be tightened during inspection
If there are minor losses on the surface of the cuff, they can be sealed. As practice shows, such a sealant will still serve some time.
The next task is to choose a suitable material for repair of rubber, because it must be elastic. Under such parameters are perfectly suitable rubber gloves that are sold in any pharmacy. In addition, a specialized inserts from rubber can be found in the store of sports products, which are used when repairing swimming circles.
Some requirements are presented to the glue that must be used in the process. it should be resistant to humidity, high temperatures. In various conditions, such glue should remain elastic. Therefore, it is recommended to purchase durable glue, designed to repair shoes, because it has a rubber.
How to make a cuff?
Of course, with the gluing patchwork on the rubber seal, each person can cope even without special skills. However, to get the desired result, you must adhere to the detailed instructions.
Table 1. Repair Instructions for Rubber Sealer.
note! The advantage of installing the old gum is that it is not so tight, what is the new, so there should be no difficulties in the installation process.
It is possible to stick the cuff to another method that is considered reliable. Here, besides gluing, damage is connected by threads. This is done as follows:
- It is necessary to take a thick thread of artificial material and a large needle, and then flash damage. Stitches must be small cross.
- After which it is necessary to make this seam thoroughly wrapping with a sealant and leave for a day so that the cuff is drunk. Then, as in previous cases it will be necessary to install an elastic band on the drum.
Upon completion of the repair, check the quality of the work done. To do this, the washing machine is connected to the network, and then launch washing. After washing, check the integrity of the connection, if it cracked, then repaired no longer worth.

Installation of the inner clamp
The inner coat of the washing machine has a screw for adjustment, when installing it should be turned to the desired diameter, we set the clamp in place and we climb it with a screw. If spring type clamp, replace the cuff will be a little harder, but also. It will be necessary to securely hold the first point of the clamp. To keep the spring coat of the washing machine, you will need a screwdriver. It should be hung in a channel that fixes the hatch until the stop. After that, the spring is pulled out with a screwdriver throughout the tank, laying it into the grooves.
Nulling most of the spring, again there is a difficulty in holding the clamp, since the exaggeration of the stretch has changed. To replace the spring clamp on old cars, round-rolls are used, because such springs were produced without regulating screw.
How to avoid problems in the future?
At the maximum, extend the service life of the rubber cuff hatch washing machine LG will help the following recommendations:
- Before booking in a dirty underwear drum, be sure to check the s for the presence of sharp small items (they are the most common cause of the cuff breaks).
- Things are placed alternately, and not a big room (neat loading helps keep the density of the rubber cuff).
- Never poured bleach, concentrated liquid powders in the drum washer (aggressive chemical components destroy rubber).
- After each wash, the cuff is wiped with a dry cloth (mold and fungi, feeding the rubber seal, are very rapidly developed in a humid environment.
It is very important to comply with the loading rates of the drum by weight (the parameters are indicated in the driver’s passport). Overload not only rejects the wear of the rubber cuff, but also extremely negatively affects the functioning of the washer in general.
