Does anybody know if I have to take the internal door panel off to replace the lower door seal on the Electrolux ESL 6115? The associated video on website shows the need to remove door completely?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It may be possible to replace without removing the inner door but it can be easier to remove it completely.
Qwhich way round does the seal go, does the part with the two gaps fit inside the groove or outwards to the inside of the dishwasher. If the easy way has the gaps outward into the dishwasher will it not leak from these two points1 Answer

I fitted this with the two gaps facing inside the dishwasher which was easy to do though watch out for sharp edge on the groove. No leaks.
I am a bit confused by the video showing how to fit the lower door seal. In the video it says that it is neccesary to take the door off its hinges. It appears that the old door seal (and new replacement) is a complete solid metal unit with rubber seal factory fitted to the metal unit. The person giving the demo removes the complete old unit, discards it, and fits a complete new unit. She refers to this complete unit as the door seal.
I have just recieved from you a replacement lower door seal and it is simply the flexible rubber part (not the complete unit shown in the video). My questions are:
1) Do I have the right part? It doesn't look like the part fitted in your video.
2) Do I really need to remove the entire door (as shown in the video)? The part you have sent looks like it would push on (once the old rubber has been pulled off).
3) If I do have the right part, and if I do need to follow the complete procedure inthe video, should I pull the old rubber off the metal lower door seal unit and try to push the new one on to that unit before re-fitting? This step is not shown in the video.
P.S. My diswasher is an Electrolux ESL 6114. It appears to be identical to the model shown in the video.

My machine is a Zanussi but uses the same seal. I just pulled the old rubber out, cleaned up the seating face the seal closes on and pushed the new rubber into the slot in the bottom of the door. Didn't remove the door. Just make sure you push the rubber in the right way up by noting the way the old one is in the slot.
QI have fitted the lower door seal easily enough but it does still have a small leak. Any suggestions please?1 Answer

Hi Whitehse93, check out this video on how to replace a dishwasher lower door seal. The model in the video is different to yours, but hopefully the process shown in the video will help you figure out why there's still a leak in your dishwasher. The only other thing I could recommend is to look for cracks or damage to the bodywork.

Hi Connie7, to replace the lower door seal, you'll need to take off the access panel at the front of the washer below the door. You'll then need to coax the old seal out of its grooving (a pliers is handy for this job). Then you need to fit the new seal in to the groove - this is easier if you've soaked the new seal in warm water for a few minutes first to make it more flexible.
