Question about Frigidaire Washing Machines
If you are talking about the circular tub boot spring, then you need to remove the gasket. Pulling out the spring is very easy, refitting is more complicated.
It is held by a clamp or clips, or both (this one has clips as well). Remove it and refit it. To remove the bellow, depending on the model you may need to remove the front panel. I think on this one you need first to remove top and control panel. When you have free access to the gasket, remove the gasket, fit gasket following the tube edge, align the gasket correctly (the soft rubber bellow), then refit the circular spring.

Check also this manual at page 29.The manual is for a similar Electrolux and shows pictures of bellow and spring refit, which is what you need to do.

The trick is to have 3 or 4 spring clamps. Start at the top and put the alignment tab in its hole then secure the boot with a clamp. work around slowly and add a clamp at the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions. Just keep at it. Affinity Service Manual
You can go to the Frigidaire tech site technical info section and look at repair videos on how to replace the boot. Go to the site hunt for video training find the laundry tab and choose a video. Uses quicktime player. Password and and all is HERE

Ok first thing unless you are overseas recheck that model number this is what i have close to that model number http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/BLTf?pathTaken=modelSearch&prst=0&shdMod=BLTf u can also look through each and see which corresponds to the one you have if you are overseas.Also part number 8 in this diagram is considered the door bellow is that what you are refering to?click this link to see the diagram http://www.fixya.com/PostAnswer.aspx?thid=8908420&ctgid=130&ref=unsl after looking at the diagram here we call that the rubber boot that attaches the inner tub to the outter frame as you can see on this diagram there are two metal rings which in this diagram is part number 7 and part number 49 are the two metal retaining rings that you have. The outter one you would use a screwdriver towards the bottom of where it is seated and pry outward without damaging the rubber boot and then slide the entire ring off the unit this ring has a spring that is located down the bottom of the metal retaining ring that holds both sides of the ring together simply connect both sides and reinstall the ring. If you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped when our chat has fully concluded it allows me to help others in similar situations Thanks Rick
p.s on this diagram it shows the spring up the top but i have mainly seen them seated down the bottom up to you top you would see bottom you wont Thanks again
