Have you looked behind the bellow under the folds to make sure there's no rips or tears? The bellow could appear okay on the outside, but still could have a tear somewhere out of plain view. I had this happen to me before.
The inner seal from the bellow to the tub could also be loose now. If you said a garment got stuck and the washer continued through the cycle, this could have loosen the seal where it attaches to the wash tub. You would need to tighten the band clamp around the facing of the tub if this is the case.
A good way in determining where the leak may be coming from is to remove the lower panel under the door. Start a wash cycle and watch to see where the water is coming out.
Now...if the tub seal is loose it may require some disassembly to get to. If you're going to go the route of disassembling the washer front, and have never replaced the bellow before, it probably wouldn't hurt to replace it anyway. My rationale: It's better to disassemble the washer once, rather than possibly having to do it all over again in the near future.
You can get a replacement bellow at searspartsdirect.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Door and Latch Parts" section for item number 1 (part #8540952). It only costs about $32.
If you need instructions on how to replace the bellow, just go to my profile and look under my "Tips and Tricks". There is a write I posted there giving step-by-step instructions. If you cannot find it, or have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps answer some of your questions.

Frigidaire has several mfr defects with their new front loading machines. The detergent/bleach drawer retains water, the door often leaks, water does accumulate in the door seal and the spin has broken twice on us and the machin is only 15 months old! Repair is contracted out by Lowes to independant repair companies, who demand payment, even when Lowes says it is covered under warrantee. What a waste of a large amount of money! We will NEVER purchase Frigidaire or recommend their products to anyone.

After going through 2 different places that sent me the wrong part, I finally got the right boot seal today from Home Depot Appliances. I just gave them my model number and they overnighted the new boot seal to me, and for only $100. To call a GE repairman, it was going to cost $70 in the trip and $170 for the seal. Rip Off. We did it ourselves. Saved a lot of time and waiting.
