Is it a genuine Hoover door seal or a non genuine replacement?

It is a genuine Hoover replacement
Expert:  bonzaco replied 10 months ago.
OK try this, open the door of the washer, with the ball of your hand wack the middle of the rear of the stainless steel tub and tell me if that stops the the squeek
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No if I turn the drum with my hand its still squeaks
Expert:  bonzaco replied 10 months ago.
OK in that case the door seal is not fitted correctly. Take it off again and when you are putting it back on make sure that the inner seal fits both between the inner and outer parts of the drum/tub dont just check the outer part. You shouldnt have a problem with the cabinet part.If that doesnt work then you either have a faulty door seal or you have been supplied with the wrong part.
