Novomatic/Schulthess washing machine door seal

I'm looking online for the big rubber door seal for a washing machine branded by Fust/Novomatic and allegedly manufactured by Schulthess 5 years ago that I got used.

Unfortunately, no luck - there is no online info on spare parts numbers on their websites and other websites selling spares don't list any spares for WA8190.

There are contact forms on the Schulthess and Fust websites asking to tell them the type and serial number and they will supposedly answer with a quote. It seems like there is no other option.

Door seals generally aren't expensive. Get a quote and go from there.

It's easier to get spares for non-Swiss products from Germany and the U.K. at a much better price but you're probably stuck with the manufacture at this point.

Schulthess have one seal on their website and it looks easy to fit but is probably not the one you need.

Did you try the order form for spare parts by Schulthess?

Hello, thank you, I've just filed the form and hopefully they reply.
We have a large household and any day of outage is increasing the backlog :-)

Re: Novomatic/Schulthess washing machine door seal

I've called the Schulthess service number this morning and the nice person who answered actually already knew about my query submitted by their web page; they will ship the replacement part today.

Re: Novomatic/Schulthess washing machine door seal

Cost of the door seal (Türbalg):

Schulthess: 92.10 (70.55 plus 21.54 for shipping)
Fust: 143.- (135 plus 8 for shipping)

Product numbers quoted by Fust and Schulthess are not to be found on the internet.

Pulling the door seal onto the drum was quite a challenge :-) But that's not a Schulthess' fault.

I was going to write that Fust has gone down in my expectations but it's at rock bottom so can't go any lower.

A length of cord and plastic kitchen spatulas often helps with this sort of thing. Bit late now though.
