Asko 10505 door seal question

3 posts in this topic

Hi there folks. I have kept our ancient Asko 10505 going all these years (since '97) through many parts transfusions and much help from this forum. The latest problem was a small leak from the bottom of the door opening. So I removed the old "door seal" which seemed to have cracked - hope that's the problem, and purchased a new one:

http://www.repaircli...delNumber=10505, Of course, by the time it came, I had disposed of the old one and now I can't seem to get the new one in.

It's a question of which edge of the seal goes in first. This seal fits around the door opening in the machine, into the circular space created by an edge of this rubber gasket: http://www.repaircli...delNumber=10505 and the lip of the opening into the washer. The seal is a circular piece of plain hard plastic strip, almost rectangular when seen edge on, but for a slight lip on one side going all the way around. If you shove it around the gasket with the lip facing out, it just falls out again. So, you would think that this lip would have to fit pointing in rather than out, and would then click into place behind the metal ring formed by the edge of the door opening. But it is absolutely horrendously too tight to make this happen. Sure, maybe I'm just not being forceful enough, but I wanted to be sure before I break it (especially since it was the last one in stock).

To make this a little clearer, I actually found a page from the Service manual as part of the repairclinic.com image for the entire door assembly. http://www.repaircli...&locID=2176 If you look at figure 3 on the page, the screwdriver is pointing at the part I'm wrestling with. And the instructions on the page are actually about how to put it in! (along with everything else having to do with the door). But the images are not clear enough to tell which way the seal is inserted. So I wondered if anyone had ever done this and could give me some tips. Thanks!
