there is usually a ring type clip with a spring on it that goes around the rubber section to hold it on...I am assuming this is a front load washer...you can remove the top of the washer by removing a couple screws..look inside for the clip..it may have fallen off inside....then you can put the rubber back in place and re-attach the clip
that rubber is called the bellow. snap the bellow back to the machine. place plastic ring over it into the grove and work it all the way around. that metal ring should have a spring on it. use a needle nose pliers and pull the spring so it stretches, metal ring should snap right in place.
The ring is a clamp that keeps the rubber part, called the bellow, attached to the front panel of the washer. To reinstall hook the edge of the bellow around the lip of the opening in the front panel (the hole through which you put your laundry). Then take the clamp and seat it in the groove of the bellow behind the lip of the front panel. The spring on the clamp should pull the bellow tight to the opening of the panel.
Typically the tear comes from something getting caught on the rubber boot or bellows as it is called on this machine. Or if a pen is left in a pocket it can cause a hole.
The bellows for your model is part number 8182119 and typically runs about $80.00
Here is a link to parts break down showing the bellows # 5 on this diagram. It is not hard to replace but you have to be fairly mechanically inclined. It is held on by a spring clamp in front and a large screw clamp to the tub.
The wire ring is the seal retaining spring, it fits in a groove at the rear of the door seal.
Double the seal back in the drum, and fit the spring around the seal at the rear of same, it fits inside a groove, it is difficult, so persist and be patient.
