It is held on by a spring that stretches around the outside of the seal. The seal simply hooks on to a small lip so all you need to do is start in one spot and push it down and away. Then just work it around like removing a bike tire until it is fully removed. Be careful of the spring. It is hooked together so it may unhook once some of the tension is removed and snap around.

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.

SOURCE: fitting door seal
this is general for fittying door boots.
on cabinet, door boot is usuallyn held by a wire ring tensioned by a small spring. prise it out with a screwdriver.
on tub, door boot is held usually by a giant hose clip for want of a better description. unscrew the tensioning screw and remove.
door boot will then pull off - just pull it off in one place then go round the circle.
lubricate the groove in the door boot that fits on the tub with washing up liquid. insert groove on tub at any convenient place and force into position by running thumbs round it in opposite directions. this is a knack i have to say.
when on, replace the giant hose clip and tighten.
slip the outer part of the door boot on the cabinet - this is usually easy. replace the holding clip.
put onto rinse cycle to test for leaks

This is quite tricky, first take off the retaining ring on the front door port, remove the seal from this rim. The back of the seal is held by a spring band. the best way to remove it is to get a good grip on the seal at the top then lift and pull (thats the easy bit), to put the new one on i always lubricate the recess on the seal with washing-up liquid and feed the seal on from the bottom with one hand whilst following it around with the other hand to stop it coming off. Once it is fully on it can then be rotated easily into the correct position. Getting the spring back on will require an extra pair of hands for obvious reasons.
Good luck with it and keep the swear box handy lol.
Thank you for using fixya
