Question about Zanussi Washing Machines
Cannot fit spring into the door seal
This is not easy and there is a real knack to it. You will find it easier to have a second person helping. One holds the spring in position at the top and the other at the bottom and roll the spring over your hands into the slot

SOURCE: I am trying to fit
Its a tricky one but the easiest way is tolubricate the inside of the flap with wash up liquid then starting at bottom feed it on bit by bit following round with other hand to stop it slipping off. Once on its easy to rotate into correct position.
You will need an extra pair of hands to help with the spring.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya.

Follow these steps to replace your door

Disconnect all power to the machine first!!
1 Locate the outer clamp band securing the seal to the door rim on the washing machine and examine it carefully for holes or tears. Many can be prised off with a flat-bladed screwdriver they have a spring system holding them, but some have a tensioning arrangement that has to be loosened.
2 After removing the outer clamp band, locate the inner one securing the seal to the drum and establish how this is secured. It may be necessary to loosen a clip, or you may be able to prise the band off with a flat-bladed screwdriver. Some are like very large Jubilee clips that you have to undo usually from the top.
3 Once the clamp bands have been removed, use both hands to pull the seal away from the inner drum rim. Some machines have a water spout holes that will have to be lined up. Others have a drain holes.
4 Rubbing a drop of washing up liquid into the groove on the door seal/gasket that locates on the drum makes fitting the new seal easier.
5 the new washing machine door seal should be fitted by locating the drain holes at the bottom of the seal first then push it on with both hands working opposite directions towards the top. This is quite hard if you have never done it before.
6 refit the inner band remembering this must be tensioned correctly for it to be water tight.
7 now fit the outer band and the test the machine for any leaks,
