    it can be done with a combination of getting at it from the top and by going thru the door opening.
    Taking the back panel off may allow you to push the tub assembly back to give you some more room

    from the photo you have a washer/dryer - you may have to remove the dryer section to get at door seal clip

    Thought about this over night..

    This is quite a difficult job on a washer/dryer (getting the new one back on!!)

    Are you sure it is absolutely necessary to change it ? : what is wrong with the old one??

    Pop the top off the machine and unscrew the front facia round the seal the seal can be fitted from inside the door aperture and from top access. Fiddly job getting the seal ring round the drum but with a bit of perseverance more than manageable mate
