Elec.door lock not operating.need to install new do i proceed to remove front of washer to replace controller?

I would actually not remove the front of the washer to do this. Locate the spring clamp that holds the front of the door boot in place and remove it. If you get a flat bladed screwdriver behind it you can roll it out of it's groove.
After you get the door boot loose, you can then remove the three screws that secure the lock in place and slide the lock into the opening of the door boot to disconnect the wires and install the new one.
Good luck with this!!

The lower portion of the door seal/ boot came out of my washer when I pulled a blanket out. A spring also came out. I tried to put it back in, but I am unsure if the spring goes under he metal lip of the...

First you can put on the door boot back on more easily by puting some water around the metal and/or rubber to lubricate it. After its seated to satisfaction the spring clamp can go on, usually with the spring to the left side, but it's prefference. the clamp will simply go on around the rubber and hold it in place. The door makes the pressure seal. Hope this helps.

Rubber boot and spring need put back in

The rubber boot presses on the rim, and the spring clamp fits in the groove behind it. Don't overtighten.

How do I replace my boot gasket on my Bosch Nexxt washer?

Here is how you do it. 1st remove the door & hinge, 2nd remove the covers on the screw where the door sits that holds down the control panel. 3rd remove two screws holding the door latch in place. Remove the spring & wire holding the boot on and pull the boot loose from the plastic holder Remove the plastic boot holder. You will now see the boot where it attaches to the tub. There is a spring and wire that holds that on. At the top there is a tab on the seal, grab it and pull towards you. The boot will come off. To reassemble I remove the counter weights(concrete weights) from the tub and put the boot firmly into the slot on the tub. Now reinstall the rear spring. Be sure to also reinstall the counter weights if removed and torque them tight around 25 to 30 foot pounds. Reassemble the front panel and put the spring retainer back on. Tools needed T20 torx driver, 13mm wrench, and needle nose plyers.

Front washer seal (boot)

It is easier to do this job if the machine can be leaned back By leaning it back, the tub will hang back from the front panel and you will have increased space to work. If leaning it back is not possible, then a 6 or 8 inch block of wood can be wedge between the front panel and the tub to hold the tub back out of the way. Using some liquid dishwasher soap sparingly lubricate this groove on the boot to make it easier to slip onto the lip of the tub shell. With the boot in one hand and with the other hand
spreading the lip and groove (on the boot near the arrow), force the lip into the groove behind the lip at the top of the opening on the tub shell. Using spacers provided with the new boot, hold the spring in place in the groove on the outside perimeter of the
boot. these spacers will prevent the spring from popping out when you let go of it to use both hands to stretch it further around the boot. Begin by pushing the spring down into the groove just forward
from where the boot contacts the front tub shell at about the 12 o’clock position. While holding the spring in place with one hand, use the other to tightly wedge the spacer above it, between
the spring (in its groove) and the weight ring above it. Working to the right, push the spring down into the groove. Once the spring has been installed about 90 degrees around the opening from the first spacer, the spring will begin to get tight. Install another spacer at that point. Check the first spacer to make sure it stays in place. Continue working your way around until you reach
180 degrees from the first spacer. Install the third spacer. The spring will be extremely tight now. Once you have gone more than half way around, the spring will be easier to roll into the rest of the groove.

Washer will not start

"Fdl" is definitely a door latch error. This will cause the washer not to start. You will need to replace the latch to keep from getting errors and intermittent problems. It will only get worse until it fails altogether. To replace, just follow these steps: 1. Unplug the washer. 2. Feel around the rubber door boot along the front edge. At the bottom, behind the rubber you will find a tension spring. Pull the tension spring out and remove the wire retaining hoop. 3. Remove the door boot from around the door opening and push inside the washer so you can access the door latch behind the front panel. 4. Remove the three screws on the front of the washer that hold the latch in place. 5. Carefully remove the wire connecting plugs to the door latch and remove latch assembly from plastic retainer holding it in place. 6. Replace the door latch in the reverse order of the steps given. 7. Reinstall rubber door boot around the door opening making sure you seat the rubber all the way around the groove. 8. Now comes the hard part - putting the retaining spring back in place. Position the tension spring at the six o'clock position and start inserting the hoop from the top first, working your way around to the 4 and 8 o'clock positions. The assistance of another person would be great right about now. Hold the hoop in place at the 4 and 8 o'clock positions, making sure you keep enough tension on the hoop to keep it seated in the groove. 9. Stretch the tension spring in order to snap the remainder of the hoop back into place. I know this may seem like a lot, but it is a fairly simple repair. I hope this helps you.

Front load washer

Hitchhiker, you don't have to remove the front of the washer. The original boot was glued in areas around the door. They came out with a new design because of water leakage on the bottom. The new kit, part number 5303937187 comes with a spring that holds it on to the panel. You can do one or two things, if you don't have the leaking problem, glue the boot back on. Or you can order the new kit, it comes with instructions and replace the whole boot. Check it out, it might be covered under service flash #26-758BR. In any event this job can be done by leaning the washer back against the wall to make room between the tub and front panel. You are going to need an assist, it's better with 2 people. back.
